Happy Customer!
After reading ALL the reviews, I was concerned if this weedwacker would adequately replace my 32cc Craftsman Bushwacker. Like other reviews say, small engine repair shops will laugh at you...not worth repairing. These are throw-away machines! I wanted the best possible quality, but could not afford a Stihl or Echo. This weedwacker was $113 on sale. I took a chance. So here's what I know so far... *It was easy to unpack and assemble. *It started on the 4th pull, and every time since. Just follow the directions printed on the weedwacker!! If you're having trouble, then you're probably not reading. *It idles like any other weedwacker I've owned. It's not a Cadillac, it's a 2-stroke. If you're not happy, then I suggest a simple adjustment. Look it up on YouTube. Needlenose to the carb. *If you don't run it with pre-mixed fuel, you're crazy!!! Buy some! Works great!! And no corrosive ethanol!! No smoke, high horsepower! *I use it with an EZ load string system to run it with heavier string. If you purchase that, use instructions for CURVED shaft installation. 1-2-3. *My gas cap leaked!! Until I realized that I could tighten it further. Torque it down....it's fine!!! When you think it is tight, go further!! *It does not bog down. If it does, then look on YouTube for an easy fix!! Did a huge job right out of the box, and I'm thrilled. Already paid for itself twice-over. Listen, all I have to say is, if you want more than this guy has to offer, then spend 3x more on a Stihl or Echo. I love this machine, and I only spent $113. (Plus tax). Good luck!

Seems fine at first but after a year its junk
I have had this weed eater ~ 1-2 years and its already broken. Besides not wanting to run at full throttle the pull start is broke. Apparently this is really common but if you dont have a warranty its a min of $70 just for sears to look at it. PLus parts and any additional labor. Save your money and buy a echo or stihl.

great power, light and easy to start

Just bought this trimmer today.... Was about to go to ****** and get a Husqvarna with 28cc engine for $199. Checked sears, AWESOME deal. Got it home and set it up with no issues.(installed braided line before first use). Took a couple minutes to.warm up. Has great power, easy to carry as it is light and the straight shaft makes it so your back isnt spasming uncontrollably after doing your yard. Get it. Save a couple bucks from the expensive ones and get yourself a 12 pack on the way home

I would recommend this product to a friend.

One year old, won't run

Bought this last year to replace my old Craftsman that wore out after about 10 years. This one starts on the first pull, and idles all day long, without a hiccup. Just don't try to give it gas so you can actually use it.

Almost 2 years of use

Just under 2 years of use and it won't start. 2 local repair shops won't even look at it, they consider them disposable. Will need a $80-100 carb rebuild...

WeedWacker

I needed a replacement for my old trimmer and found this one. I do have a tiller attachment which I can use on this trimmer as well. I haven't had time to use it yet but seems very sturdy.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good Weedwacker

The packaging was horrible. The box was crushed and I thought oh well, I'll just throw it away anyway. Broken plastic parts are never good. I like the slightly larger motor chops weeds up, easy top start.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
