I must have been unlucky and picked up a defect. Engine vibrates pretty hard and stalls after ~30 secs. I thought maybe I wasn't operating it correctly, but I did not have similar problem with the 4 cycle version.

I am extremely disappointed with this product!!! Bought at Sears at the end of last season. Used it a couple of times. Product would not start, sent it in for service, work covered under warranty. This season no different, hard to start, runs for a few minutes then dies and won't start for a couple of hours. I will never purchase a Craftsman again!!!

Good torque, sufficient power, and lightweight. The machine I purchased has about 15-20 hours on it--so far, so good. The clerk at 'Sears' recommended using fuel stabilizer; which I concur. I personally recommend using 1.1 gallons of fuel for the 40:1 two stroke mix (I've found this makes most machines less prone to fouling spark plugs, carburetors, and exhaust components [ports, mufflers, spark arresting screens]). I've used 'Echo', 'Stihl', and other 'commercial' grade string trimmers, and while they are good products, they typically last no longer than the low cost brands such as 'Craftsman'--which is about two years. I saved a few bucks by getting the curved shaft model, knowing that I had an extra straight shaft at home (which of course nearly every pro prefers). I also changed out the trimmer head--I love the "Poulan Pro" model #'PP125' trimmer head--it loads easily, and lasts acceptably well.

Assembly pretty easy, love the quick line head on this 110 to 130 dia string gets the job done.Did the yard no problem then decided to give the blackberry vines a try, they have overgrown everything and have had no luck in the past using reg dia line on my old trimmer. Let me tell you this trimmer is a brush ninja, it ate the vines up never bogging down. Best line trimmer i have owned .

I bought and returned this unit within 24 hrs. The single line feed worked fine, but after two tanks of fuel and about 1/2 of my yard, the trimmer head started to warble, causing the entire unit to shake and vibrate. Probably not a good unit if you want to do more than wack your sidewalk weeds as it is pretty lightweight.

First time I used it the gas tank fell off! Two screws were missing to attach it to the motor. It was a bit scary. Fortunately I had a screw from an old unit that fits.
