This trimmer is too heavy on the back end. The weight is not distributed evenly. It makes it really hard yo handle and therefore it will not trim evenly. Sears did a really bad design on this trimmer.
unfortunately we had to return 4 weedwackers and go elsewhere. The head would not turn because grass wrapped around the shaft. Another wouldn't run. Another had parts missing and on the last one the rope would not recoil.
Have used this trimmer about 10 times since purchase. Pros: Powerful, easy start, don't have to mix oil, shoulder strap included If it were not for the following "Cons" I would have given this a 5 star rating. Cons: Balance is too far to the rear. From an ergonomics point of view, it is very stressful on your wrist, as you have to pull up while working the trigger with one hand. You have to push down with your other hand which causes undue stress to the shoulder, elbow and forearm. If it were not for the included shoulder strap, this unit would not be manageable at all. Instead of developing a weed whacker for a 4-cycle engine (which by nature are bigger and heavier than 2-cycle), they used the same basic shaft design and length of the lighter 2-cycle. For a good balance, and therefore a design which would not adversely stress wrist, shoulder and elbow joints, the shaft should have been about 6 inches longer which would have allowed the shoulder strap to be located at the center of gravity (balance point). A personal preference is that I like the automatic feed style trimmer. I don't like the style used with this model, as it is impossible to maintain a uniform line length. I would not recommend this model to a friend, though I may end up giving this away to someone I do not know.
I thought this 4 cycle trimmer would be more convenient...no mixing of oil and gas. The problem is that it is way too heavy, and the weight is distributed toward the back so it was a constant fight to keep the head down and steady. I was exhausted after trimming a small yard. Thankfully, Sears took it back and allowed me to exchange for a smaller 2 cycle, which I have tried and love.
