Great combo for a really good price
I was really looking for a reasonably priced brush cutter and ended up with a combo for about the same as a decent weedwacker. I don't really see any cons yet, but the pros are the price, multi-uses, and service availability. I had a great cutter that stopped working and don't have a service provider within 3 hours drive (local repair said they need special tools and parts).

Very Weak
I wished I never purchased this item. It is very weak in power it would even stall itself even when your not cutting anything. Don't be fooled by the straight shaft. It is all cables on both ends. This thing would be ok on a very small yard and the brush-cutter attachment is really a joke. It can cut large weeds that would eat up lots of string using the normal head, being on a little bit of a positive site. If you are going to buy this then you better have a very small yard. It can't candle grass much more than three inches high. The brush cutter gets jammed up very easily. This is not a rugged tool by no means. You can get polan for cheaper and get about the same production as this thing. The 199 is overpriced and it doesn't perform up to its name brush cutter combo. This is superlight use tool. I took this thing back and for 200 more I got a Stihl weedeater with a real straight shaft with handlebars and a 3 sided cutting blade. I will probably never have to buy another weedeater again. Don't waste your time or money. This would be ok for a 10 year old boy doing lite work in small yards. Sell the brush cutter attachment on **** and hope you get some money back to pay for this thing.

Love the Brush Cutter

I bought this after my yard killed two string trimmers in one season. We have not used the string head yet but love the brush cutter. It cuts through the heavy weeds and brush in my yard like butter! Have never had any problems starting it or keeping it running. This has been a lifesaver!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Going Back ASAP

I found the Brush Cutter useless and all I wanted it to cut was water grass in a ditch. Line trimmer part was okay at best. CHEAP, thin plastic guard. Going to be returned in the morning.

not worth it

Got it put together, started it up (40 pulls later) and it would not stay running. Put it to grass and it continued to choke out and die. At least returning it was easy. Save your money , go buy a better one for less.

Pretty solid

Used this the day after I purchased it. Only real complaint is that I had to mix oil and gas, pretty normal but with the mower I bought as well I didnt have to. Other than that this worked as advertised. I have not used the second attachment, Ill come back once i have used that. As for the weed eater attachment, pretty simple to use, easy to put together. I wish is was a little longer, I am only 6'2" and have to lean over to get it level with the ground which was a little tough on my back.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good trimmer for the price

I've been using one of these for 3 seasons now and it been a good trimmer. The carb had to be adjusted on it last year due to lack of power, but other than that the engine starts very easy hot or cold and the entire trimmer has been trouble free. The brush cutter attachment is on the weak side, however, only being strong enough for 1/8 inch saplings or less. Although it's easy to use I'm not in love with the "hassle free" head because I have to change lines several times going around my cross-fenced acre as the chain link fence and concrete foundations really wear the line down fast. Just cutting out in the open, however, one line will last a long time. When the spool of .135 hassle free line runs out I may go with a regular tap and go head and stop using the hassle free. I have the Craftsman tiller attachment that we use some and I just bought the hedge clippers too. Both work well. This is really a good all-around tool for the home owner and if this one wears out I most likely will buy another just like it. It won't do the heavy work of a "pro class" trimmer but for the price I'm a happy camper.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Difficult to start

Difficult to start---line breaks too frequently and difficult to feed into head.
