I was having trouble starting my weed eater(another brand).No matter what I tried the weed eater did not start when I needed it.So, I purchased a craftsmen and it starts all the time . It is also light enough but strong enough so that I have decided to buy more attachments for it.

Just purchased this whacker and it is different than the 31cc Craftsman that I was use too. It seems to get the job done, just not as much power. I haven't yet put it to the test of using the pole saw attachment and cutting a ton of limbs. The option of the easy start tool seems pretty cool but, for now it's easy to start by priming and using the pull cord.

I wanted the convertable weed trimmer in order to be able to use the various attachments. This is my second one and I bought it because of the advancements in design in recent years. The easy start, without a manual choke, and the starting feature by using a drill and Sears accessory part were instrumental in my decision. My only suggestion would be for Sears to offer this lawn tool with no attachment. I already had the trimmer from my previous tool, and now have two of them. A very good product, as usual, from Sears.

put the recommended pre-mix gas in as soon as i got it home. followed the directions to start it(pump 15x, pull throttle, pull cord) started on 2nd pull. i cut my alley first, since that was the true test. it cut through everything, including 2 foot tall crab grass, many tall dandelions, and the rhubarb someone planted back there. the rhubarb had gotten to be about 3 foot in diameter and the same high. anyone who doesn't know, the stalks are about 1/4 in to 1/2 in thick. this trimmer did wonderful. i turned it off to see how hard it may be to restart, and it started after 1 pull without using the throttle. this is the first day, but if i have any issues, i will update. luckily, i know how to properly use and take care of the new smaller engines(they require care), so i don't think i will have anything to report in the future except good things
