This unit is nice and I love the features. I purchased this unit, because I had one for six years and this attachments fit this new unit. I have had the new 32cc trimmer unit for a week, but I have a big concern on whether Craftsman over exaggerated the power again. I say again, because they done this with their lawn mowers and ended up in a class action lawsuit. It does not seem to have 32cc?s of power at all, I am wonder whether or not I received a defected unit. I hope I am wrong about this trimmer.
Panama City, FL
Loved with weed eater for the first year, very powerful and smooth running. It is a bit on the heavy side but a fair trade with the amount of power. CON: when pulling the cord it does not engage the crankshaft. The pull cord still has spring tension and recoils the cord but doesn't "catch" to turn the crankshaft. Took it in for warranty repair....two week process btw, got it home and pulled it ten times...broke again. ALSO, the air filter cover screw is stripped out. It wasn't that way when I turned it in for repair. I'm going to drop it off for repair one more time and if it breaks again I'll be barking at a district manager.
I honestly think that every good review about this product was written to soon and they didn't give it time. For me I used it twice for about 15 minutes each time. The next time I went to start it the pull cord would not work had to take it into the shop. So they fixed it and I used it once again worked fine till I stopped for a minute went to start it up and would not go. Anyways got it back again and use it the head starts to vibrate next thing you know the gears stripped exactly what the salesman told after I bought it at the store. Really wish I bought an echo like our old one which is still going after 10+ years, or a shindaiwa. Hope this helps someone out there even if just one person not waste money like me.

great power, heavy, they reduced the size of the gas tank to help with the weight, just makes gasing up every 20 minutes. Gas spout leaks when unit is tip backwards. So during changing or adjusting line, overhead pruning/sawing etc.
El Centro, CA
Very powerful and uses .155 line that you have to change out. thought it would be a pain not using a bump head but you can cut and edge a whole yard with one piece of string it's so thick and tough. You can also buy Troy Bilt line that is orange online that works better than the sears line but is more expensive...it lasts longer so it depends on what your time is worth. Only complaint is since so powerful it is also really heavy so I don't recommend for a lightweight.
This is the first 4 cycle trimmer I have owned and I am very impressed. The motor is very smooth running and most vibration free and that allows me extended use without the numbing in my hands. The power and torque is great for the tiller and edger attachment as well. Overall recommended for ease of starting, use and operation.
