Of all of the Craftsman products I have owned this one is the most poorly designed. The handle, trigger and safety switch could not have been placed in a more awkward position causing abnormal stress on the operator. The engineers who design these products should be required to use them. You should not be more tired from holding the trimmer than from actually using it. Otherwise the power and function was what I expected.

Didn't want a gas or corded trimmer -- so I went with this 40 volt battery trimmer. Not sorry at all. Live on a lake and the weeds were high and dense by the water. This trimmer took care of them. Was able to do all around the house, flower beds and 3/4's by the lake. The battery lasted long since I did have a great deal of unwanted growth by the water. Charged it up (which is extremely quick) and finished the last 1/4 of the growth by the water. Very easy to assemble, light weight and easy to operate. Most of all - it does a very good job for the price.

The clerk at Sears told us that the cordless trimmer would not last more than 15-20 minutes regardless of what size battery we purchased. This trimmer did an excellent job and did not die even though we have a very large yard with trimming about a privacy fence and lots of landscaping. We are very pleased with how the trimmer works.
The handle with 2 triggers required to operate is awkward and unbalanced. String does not feed automatically. The string is weak and heavier string doesn't work. The balance is awkward and tiring to operate. It is hard to remove the string cover and replace the string.
This string trimmer is fantastic! I have used it for 3 months now and have been impressed by the long lasting battery and the power this trimmer has! The edger does a great job of doing my sidewalk and driveway...looks like a professional did the job! It is so much lighter than a gas powered trimmer and makes it easy to get into tight areas. The battery life is great...takes more power when edging, but can charge back up in just 30 minutes! I have bought mostly craftsman tools and have always been greatly satisfied...customer service and quality are fantastic. Thank you SEARS for such a great product!
Great item. Lots of power. Line feed is working well. When I sense that the line is too short, I just turn the trimmer off and back on again and it feeds the line once again. It is not as powerful as my gas trimmer but, it does the job nicely.
My old gas trimmer recently began leaking gas all over me. Being frustrated with the smelly, dirty old thing I decided to go with this lithium-ion option from Craftsman. Although I was hesitant at first, I am very pleased with its performance. It is light-weight, quiet, and easy to use, the battery lasts easily for my entire yard-which is a bit over an acre. It also has plenty of power! It is so much easier and cleaner to deal with as opposed to the old-2-cycle gas trimmer I had. I'll never go back! I'd highly recommend.
