I purchased this item last summer, the first time we tried to use it, it took a couple pulls to start and then it worked great. We got this item to replace a no name old trimmer that finally died. After that first use it got harder and harder to start, we maybe got a handful of uses with it over the season. Now taking it out again for this season it wont start at all! We have given it clean fuel, done all the start up recommendations and all it got us was a handful of blisters and piece of junk machinery. Please don't waste your money on this, or if you do, make sure to take it back as soon as you get your one use out of it because that is all it will give you.

This weed eater is heavy and has no carry strap nor an option to add one. It is hard to start. I thought it never would start the first time. It is also hard to start when warm, which must be done frequently because of the string design, the unique feature that is the worst. There is no tap and go feature. A single line must be pushed through both sides of the cutting head. If you've ever tried to push a chain you know the results. The brass fitting at the end does not line up with the channel so you must not only push the line in, you must twist it at the same time to get it to pop into alignment. Only about 8 inches, +/- of the line extends on both sides. One third of the line is wasted because it is inside the cutting head. The line is used up quickly requiring frequent line changes. I could go on. This weed eater is horrible. When I complained, Sears did not even have the courtesy to reply to my complaint. Do not buy this machine.
While I like the fact I don't have to mess with mixed gas, this model seems to lack the power that earlier models used to have. The head bogs down even when trimming simple areas such as along the side of the house where grass isn't thick. Threading brush line (black string) into the head is a chore to say the least, the holes aren't quite big enough to prevent a fight when pushing the line through. Also, the days of firing up a weed whacker with ease are gone as the steps outlined on this model are a bit much. Overall, this product does get the job done despite these few issues I have pointed out.

Yea, seems like craftsman did everything right for them on this Model Trimmer. I live on a good slope with plenty of rock to retain the hillside. I break at least 15 of these less than high quality pre cut trimmer lines, every time out. I would hope that the cost of them would come down a bit. at 6.95 per 10, I am pretty sure I can hire out a lawn care company for about 6 to 7 dollars a week. hoping for a more competitive price string line.
Really hate to be negative after having a Craftsman string trimmer for several years that finally gave out. Thought I would buy on of the new 4 cycle models. Got the first one home. Tested it for about 10 minutes and it was fine. First time really using it, after about 30 minutes, severe vibration started in shaft and there was a loss of power. Returned it and got a replacement. Tested the second one for about 10 minutes, and again, no problem. A few days later, after about a half hour of use, engine started running rough, I looked back at the engine and oil was running on the outside of the housing. At that point, a puff of smoke and it was dead. Returned this one and got my money back. Fellow at store remarked that there seemed to be some issues with the four cycle models. I would suggest avoiding this model. If you do buy one, make sure to give it a good workout within the return period. As for me, I just bought a 2 cycle Echo elsewhere.
This was a replacement for a weedwacker that Sears said they no longer had spark plugs for. Very powerful, but the plastic grip handle is not made well only one bolt holds it on and as the unit ibrates while cutting the handle shifts. Otherwise it does the job
it cut ok, but the problem is that its heavy and dont have a strap to help hold it, and after 5 minutes youll have a lower back ache and tired hands, and after 30 your done for the day. IF your using it to cut tall grass, the grass will wrap up around the part above the cutting line and you have to pick it out every few minutes, it needs some sort of bell there to keep it from doing that. I would buy a different model if i could do it again, maybe one with a strap, and a curved bottom since this one would need to be about a foot longer and better balance.
Where to start! first of all last month I purchased a riding lawn tractor from Sears and thought that my work in the yard was decreased, wrong. The mower left me with a lot of string trimming and just my luck my seven year old trimmer quit working. When I purchased the mower I received a bunch of points or something like that to use on future purchases so I bought the mentioned line trimmer. First thing I noticed was no harness to help with the weight as I now had to go where the mower wouldn't. next was the line guard which I feel is too big and keeps me from turning the line sideways for flowerbeds. Now for the part that really turned me against this product....... the line itself, the trimmer takes a precut braided line that is approx. 12" long and feeds into the cutter wheel and does not last when trimming agains rock planters. The braided line wears down and you throw away over half of the line. In the package of line I have a couple heavier gauge braided lines so I thought I woul
