Very satisfied with this gas weedwacker

We did alot of research before this purchase and owning two electric trimmers in the past year, each of the electric ones Hubby was not satisfied with.  He LOVES this one and is telling all the neighbors about it.  It does an excellent job. The thick cord lasts a long time and is easy to slip a new one in.  Hubby is 6 foot tall so glad we purchased the straight stem rather then one that he would have to bend over when using.  It is a bit heavy so would be best if a shoulder harness is used with it.

27CC 2 cycle Gas trimmer, model 79120

Electric starter works great, but it will be more practical if it is cordless with rechargable battery so you could carry it with you when you are away from garage without electricity. Regular pull was dissapointed because it will not start the engine. Unit was too hot when you touch it. I decided to return it back to Sears after my 1st use.

Hard to start and expensive to use

Owed the trimmer over a year. It took over 30 mins to start during the first use. This spring took me another 30 mins to start it again. The trimmer line do not last long. I use the Craftsman brand and they went out fast. Also, because the way they install the trimmer line, half of it will be throw away. What a waste! Planning to replacement the trimmer head with a model that without wasting any trimmer line. Lucky those replacement trimmer head is available!

The Craftsman 27cc Straight Weedwacker is Powerful an Reliable.

My Craftsman 27cc 2cycle Crank Straight Shaft Gas Trimmer is just what I needed for my 1 acre property.I used other brands electric and gas ie....Black & Decker ect..where the electric one's always burnt out on me,and the other gas one's wouldn't start after using it for a while which would always frustrate me,but when I bought the Craftsman 27cc Weedwacker I couldn't be more happy. The Power and Reliability is great,not only does it start on the first try but I could do my whole acre lot with no problem!!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

The Craftsman 27 cc* 2-Cycle was a great buy

The Craftsman 27 cc* 2-Cycle was a great deal. I am very happy with it's performance so far. It is much quieter than other trimmers I have had. As far as the heat generated that other reviews stated it was warm but not to the point of burning. I felt it wasn't excessive, it's gonna be warm with a gas engine there. So far I am very pleased, and the quick feed trimmer head is great, it does take some time to get used to compared to the bump-feed head that I am used to using

I would recommend this product to a friend.
