POWERFUL UNIT FAILURES: ALWAYS HARD TO START THEN TO KEEP RUNNING STILL WORKED FOR A YEAR & HALF THOUGH THE GEARS IN THE LINE-HEAD STRIPPED IN THE FIRST YEAR WITH ONLY LIGHT USE... REPAIRED FREE... WOULD NOT START A FEW MONTHS LATER WHEN SENT FOR REPAIR THEY QUOTED ME TWICE THE WHAT I PAID IF I WANTED TO REPAIR IT SAYING IT WAS RAN WITHOUT ENOUGH OIL. BULLWHIP! THEY TUNE THESE WAY TOO LEAN ***EMISSION LAWS (CALIFORNIA) REQUIRE THEM TO TUNE THESE WAY TOO LEAN & YOU CAN'T ADJUST THE CARBURETOR WITHOUT LOSING WARRANTY

Used this weedwacker for one season (2013)...started having starting problems before the grass cutting season was over. Has not started at all this cutting season (2014)....a piece of JUNK...I am about ready to let Sears go FOREVER.
Every time I pick this thing up I think to myself, "Man, I'm glad I bought this one." It starts easily usually on the 1st or 2nd pull. Even after sitting 6 months over the winter it started right up 2 years in a row. I'm glad I went with the larger engine over one of the smaller ones as it has plenty of power and I'm not sure a 25cc would work as well. The straight shaft and bump feed head are what I grew up using so this one is no different. I am not someone who is gentle on their tools and this thing hasn't seemed to mind so far. I haven't tried any of the other attachments but I'm glad that the option is there.

Picked this up on sale...it's probably good for one heavy season, but will likely be replaced with a more substantial weedeater. I have not had the best of luck with the last 2 Craftsman weedeaters, although they have been the cheapest straight shafts they offer. I will spend a bit more on something that will last longer next time I buy.
Use thicker string, works well. Only downside...not much on the spool if working on an area against brick or fencing so had to stop and add additional string.
Fort Wayne, IN
I bought one and used it 3 times and it locked up on me after only 2 weeks. I returned it and had to order another replacement. this one lasted only about 4 times before doing the same thing, but because it was just outside the return policy I had to send it in for repairs. they told me that the repair costs are more than double what I paid and I told them that I did not want another one and they are suppose to be replacing it with the next model up. Let's see if they come through with that!
Los Lunas, NM
Used this unit about 8 times and now the head won't spin. Took unit apart and found that the gears are shot! I wish I could say I abused the thing or mashed the line feed head, but I didn't. Now I have to price out replacement parts. Piece of garbage!
