Bought this trimmer to trim several bushes near my house. It did the job and was light to use. Being light was important since I was going to use it for 2 hours none stop.

Very poor engineering on this piece. The trimmer head rotates the wrong way! When you trim, it throws all the clippings back into the beds and not away from it! HUGE MESS!!! Not only that, it's a big gas hog. My Poulan Pro that was purchased from ******* runs circles around this thing! I will be selling this one.
I am a true blue Craftsman product guy, but this is the second trimmer I've had to return in a few months. This one was weak like the 4 stroke I started with, but a little better. But then it wouldn't start after a dozen or so uses. Unfortunately Craftsman just isn't making a trimmer worth the my time.
I purchased this item on 6/17/2014 from the refurbished items shelf. The salesperson assured me that it was good as new. The trimmer took almost 10 minutes to start and shuts off when I hit the gas. The salesperson told me that I have 30 days to return it......................iIT WILL BE RETURNED!
Lifespan 6 months, forget all the crank gimmicks unless you like cranking your weeds down. Second failure from Sears, I wouldn't recommend to the recycle bin as I chunked mine into the garbage. Line disappears requiring reloads, motor fails to run more than 10 minutes at a time, will not idle, will only start with starting fluid. Forget it, I'm going 4cycle, Sears really dropped the ball on these cheap imports.
We have lots of weeds along our fence line. My husbands spends a lot of time clearing the fence line and this weedwacker has made the job much easier. Lightweight and easy to use!
