Starts on first pull every time. Really does a great job. has great balance. Will be able to add attachments in the future. Thus this will do a lot more than just trim where the lawn mower won't fit.
Used only once and it worked great. First few pulls and it started. The handle could be a bit longer. Weight was average. I like this stringer better than the coils.
Worked pretty well the first few times I used it. Starts with minimal effort (2 - 3 pulls) with choke on. After about a month of use (a couple hours on the weekends) it would not stay running. It still starts fine but once you turn the choke off or squeeze the throttle it sputters and dies.
This is my first gas weed trimmer and i'm loving it! I'm coming from a battery operated B&D and this thing blows that out of the water! I'm using the craftsman 40:1 pre mixed gas/oil from the store that is high octane with NO ethanol. The ethanol will ruin the engine and carburetor in no time. This starts within 3 pulls every single time for me and never stalls. I bought some replacement line on ****** which is much more stronger than the craftsman brand, I blew through 3 pieces doing my yard and with the new stuff I haven't even burned through one custom cut piece yet! I have bought the edger for this trimmer too and it provides a great amount of power. I love that it takes attachments!

Bought this for my hubby as a gift and he's really happy with it. He loves that it can be used for a variety of tasks. I have never been let down by ordering online from Sears and having items shipped to my house. Everything arrives in such a timely manner, usually about a week and a half. Awesome.
I trusted this brand backed up by Sears. Alas! Just few months after the warranty period, two years, it is dead. Does NOT stay running. I am not a heavy user. Of course, Sears is NOT willing to repair the trimmer few months after the warranty has expired. Really frustrating. Stay away from Craftsman brand!
