      WeedWacker Gas Trimmer Gets It Done Faster

      The 2-Cycle Straight Shaft WeedWacker is dream yard equipment - it's quiet, easy to start, lightweight, powerful and big enough to get the job done faster so you can get back to enjoying your weekend.

      With a gigantic 17-inch cutting swath, the WeedWacker gas trimmer makes quick work of routine trimming and annual clearing. The straight shaft lets you reach and cut farther, while making the WeedWacker more comfortable for taller users. It's gas-powered, so you're free to move, not tripping all over extension cords. An oversize guard provides advanced debris protection and helps ensure that you're whacking weeds rather than shins, while the dual-line bump-and-go head keeps you moving. A dream machine for your chores, bring home this Craftsman, and get the job done fast.

      • Cycle Straight Shaft WeedWacker is durable, lightweight and easy to use. It requires mixing gas and oil 40:1
      • Incredi-Pull starting system is engineered to reduce the starting effort. Use a slow, smooth pull instead of a strenuous yank
      • The 57 in. straight shaft extends the reach and makes the WeedWacker more comfortable for taller users
      • A dual line bump cutting head easily advances trimmer line. Just bump and go
      • The adjustable handle's ergonomic design is built for comfort
      • Cut weeds, not legs. A deluxe guard gives you advanced debris protection
      • The WeedWacker comes with a full two-year warranty and a limited 10-year warranty on the shaft

      A Pleasant surprise

      I'm not a great fan of anything Sears with a motor, but I wanted to try a straight shaft trimmer. I crossed my fingers & decided to give this one a try. It started on the fourth pull out of the box & has never taken more than three pulls when cold since.  It has always started on the first pull when hot. Power is sufficient for any normal use. I've had it about 4 months & am perfectly happy with it. My neighbor used it twice & bought one for himself. (Made me happy for that) I'm not sure when my curved shaft  Steihl will be used again.

      2nd one that I have owned

      This is the second one that I have owned. I ran the 1st one about 10 years until I killed it from overuse, for my personal property. Never had a problem with it. I am expecting the same thing from this one.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Flawed design

      I bought this trimmer, used it once, and returned it immediately. Where the end of the shaft meets the spinning head, there is a opening for grass to get sucked into and tangled in. The first and only time i used it, i spent more time digging grass out of it with my knife then i did actually using it. When i returned it, they said most straight shaft trimmers on the market today have this same design, and the only way to get away from that design is to buy a more exepensive trimmer, like a Husqvarna or a Stihl. I went out shopping for a different trimmer after returning this, and sure enough, they were correct. So i went and bought a Stihl FS 56 RC. Yes, i spent more then twice as much on the Stihl then what i spent on this trimmer,($220 to be exact) but it was (is) worth every penny! My 10 year old mcculloch, which barely stays running anymore, has an entirely different, and much better design. Until they change the design on these, in my opinion, they're garbage.

      Good Value Trimmer

      I've used the trimmer for about a month and am pleased with the purchase. I moved to a house where a lot more trim work was required so wanted a reliable straight shaft trimmer. It's easy to start and runs well. Remember to buy some extra line because what it comes with doesn't last long.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Great Price

      Light and with a powerful engine, the bump feature is much better than the string replacement and the line last much longer.

      Wonderful

      This is a lot better than the one I got at M---------! That one only lasted a few months and couldn't be repaired! I believe in Craftsman!
