I bought this for residential lawn jobs beginning in the fall when the weather was cold. I've used it 3 times since. The trimmer head got kind of hot one time, so that concerns me as I live in Texas. Also, at 5'6", it's kind of big for me when I have to hold it awkwardly in a higher position when trimming some certain lawn areas. I think this is advertised as the "right fit for a tall person", just an FYI, but it is manageable. Other than that, it trims nice and edges the sidewalk area with a professional look - if the lawn was already decently maintained. Has good power and I like the attachment options plus its ability to take remove the attachment easily.
Love it. Easy to start.The optional strap/sling should come as standard equipment especially when using the brush cutter which I also purchased. My purchase was even delivered to my local Sears store ahead of its expected delivery date.
Had this weed wacker for well over a year now and put it through its paces. I use it as does my son to do neighbors yards/lawns and have this running - regularly. We also regularly use the multiple attachments and it continues to perform without a hitch. Have gone through heavy brush many times, thick hedges etc.. never a problem with power. Starts on the first pull or two, is quiet compared to many others and is well made. I've seen bad reviews for they type of head it has - that is just a matter of preference and the heads can be changed anyway. For me the main thing is if the motor and main unit are reliable & solid and they are. The only modification I made - just from experience - was to use a couple of zip ties to hold two rubber pads under the gas tank that the unit sits on when you put it down. Many other models are the same - unit sits on on the gas tank and with the use we put them through - we have actually worn through and cracked the tanks in the past. If you know anything about small engines and how to maintain - treat them - this will serve you well. Very good unit and great value.
I find that the trim line is not as durable as the smaller fishing line type. I have to change the trim-line after each use.

I had a weedeater brand that stopped working this summer after TEN years of flawless service! Rather than repair it (My bad) I put it in the trash and bought this model...THREE times. Each one over heated and I never made it through the front lawn. That's with premixed fuel purchased from sears! The design resembled my old weedeater. But never lived up to it! Both my lawn mowers, push and riding are craftsman and I love them. Sears was also gracious to refund my purchases all three times. I am sad as I would have loved to have a working weed wacker!
Not like all the rest that feed line this takes a measured amount and as it gets shorter, must replace with full length and throw away roughly 50% of good but too short line. Like the new method of no choke
I had to buy a good weed-wacker to get caught up on some overgrowth on my property. This long shaft with the heavy cutting line provided let me wack my way out of the problem. STARTS EZ, RUNS QUIETER than most other units. Routine service and cleaning is a strong point.
