My Husband loves his new toy[ although it does all of his heavy weeds around our pond ] He put it together in less than 10 minutes with the help of our 10 year old grandson. He gives iy a five star rating.

After burying my beloved 32cc Craftsman Weed Wacker of 13 years, it was time to go out and get a new Craftsman...boy was I wrong. I owned this "beauty" less than 24 hours before returning it. It started fine, in fact on the second pull. It was lazy to rev up based against my Craftsman leaf Blower and foregone 32cc wacker. I figured that it perhaps had an air bubble in the fuel line so I idled and revved it for 15 mins prior to its maiden voyage. I was alarmed to find the unit had a clutch that will not allow the head to rotate until suitable RPM has been achieved. No Big Deal right?...wrong. With the throttle squeezed, without a load on it the engine sounds labored. immediately upon contact with grass on edges of landscaping the clutch slips and the rotation of head stop. I completed trimming my 1/2 acre yard in twice the amount of time as had to wait for the head unit to catch up and take swipes at grass that was 6" tall. What a joke, Craftsman should be ashamed for degrading their own name. I will not look for a different brand after over 2 decades of Craftsman Brand lawn care products.
we have purchased a lot of weedwackers. This 2-cycle is awesome. The straight shaft with metal head was a selling point. The 4-cycle which was a little more had a plastic head. The single string over having to re-spool new string not only convenient, the range of the gauge of the string you can purchase allows for light to heavy duty trimming. Definitely purchase the recommend canned fuel for this. It starts and runs great. Craftsman products are quality backed with a guarantee. Very pleased with this product.
Seems to work hard to spool up and when running grass always gets wrapped around the neck which has to be removed to continue.
Very poorly designed. The breather cap is held on by a screw with a cap that is fitted on to it. This cap does not stay on. The cap falls off and the breather then falls off. I have replaced it twice and now use a washer and lock nut on it. The engine also brushes against your arm while holding it and will cut your arm. A sling is almost required to operate.
