The Craftsman 27cc 2-Cycle Straight Shaft Weedwacker boasts an Exclusive 360-degree rotating handle for enhanced comfort and control. It's equipped with a full-crank engine desgined to reduce vibration and extend engine life.
Featuring Craftsman's Best starting system with the 2-step choke (simply prime and pull) and Incredi-Pull (pulling the rope easier to start), this unit will start up in seconds. Also featured is Speed Start technology, which eliminates the pull rope allowing for push-button starting capability using any of the 3 optional starters (sold separately). A Straight shaft design offers enhanced reach and is more comfortable for taller users.

We purchased this product and was blown away on how easy it was to string the weed wacker. Its very powerful and gets the job done quicker that most weed wackers.

It came out of the box with a broken part. The lever that allows for the blade angle adjustment was broken and laying in the bottom of the box. The product did NOT appear to be used prior. Breakage likely caused by poor packaging / handling in transit. Difficult to start. On first use for 20 minutes there was no middle speed available. It had to run at idle or full speed, otherwise it would bog and stall. After 60 minutes and when it's quite well warmed up, it will have a middle speed range. Vibration: too much. It causes fatigue and loss of control of the machine after 30 minutes. I will be returning this item and trying another brand. Disappointed in the Craftsman Brand.

This weed whacker is truly worth every dime I paid for it. Putting it together was very easy, starting it was almost flawless, it had a descent delay mode that allowed me enough time to get it in the position I wanted it in to start working. I am very satisfied.
Trimmer worked great. Chg to edger, great. Chg to trimmer, failed to work. Trimmer would not turn. Need to bring back to get fixed. Frustrating.

I've only used it twice but, so far I like it. The trottel works different than my old one so it is going to be a while getting use to it. So far it works great. Comes with red a black line. The red does'nt last long if your trimming around fence are something like it.
