71102 Trimmer Review and Tips for Smooth Operation: Check it Out.
Hopefully this will help you all out and anyone else who buys this trimmer. I bought one and had it constantly stall out on me only in the off choke setting. I replaced the fuel mixture, cleaned and oiled the air filter and fiddled with the idle screw to no avail. The warranty rep told me to exchange the unit because it was only one week old. The replacement also stalled out in the off choke setting (perhaps even a little worse than the first trimmer did). Something was not clicking so I decided (after a lot of research) to adjust the lo-speed needle (closest of the two special screws towards the engine) on the carburetor (counter clock wise 1/8th of a turn to richen the mixture ? did it without the special Single D carb tool). Doing that plus increasing the idle fixed it. This may help those who have trouble starting it as well (I did not) Since then it?s operated for 45 minutes for two sessions straight with no hesitation or stalling at any rpm. It is a very strong and capable!

Craftsman WeedWacker VERY poorly built

<span>I love Sears and I have loved Cratsman products, but if this represents the future of "Craftsman", I am done. I bought the WeedWacker 2 months ago and had used it maybe 6 times before it wouldn't start anymore. When it did run previously, I had the problem
the same reported by others - it would only run at full speed and idle, but nothing in between and it would try to kill if not given full throttle. Now it won't start at all and I have damaged my shoulder trying to get it started. I checked the spark and the gas and both were fine. Tried to call the 800 number for help and got no answer after 10 minutes on hold. Was loading the trimmer into the car to return it when I notice it was leaking fuel/oil. Looked closer and discovered that the cover where the optional cover attaches was loose. Turns out that it needs to be tight to have compression in the cylinder. Besides being a ridiculous design, the quality control inspectors never caught that the two screws had not been tightened (and one was missing entirely). I am keeping the trimmer for now because I don't have the receipt, but I have NEVER been so disappointed with Sears!</span>

Good lite duty trimmer

The unit has good power and is easy to start. The curved shaft is too short for me, but is just right for my wife and it is a lot lighter than my straight shaft trimmer. When I first ran the trimmer the motor would stumble and bog down some when under a load so I took it back to the hardware store where I bought it. The small engine tech there adjusted the carb and now the thing runs great.Just for grins I put my tiller attachment on it and there was more than enough power to till the flower beds. This is strictly a lite duty trimmer but that's all I expected for what I paid.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Had Issue but Fixed

Have had weed wacker for four years and used all year long due to attachments. Unit is very basic and you get what you pay for. This winter it wouldn't start. Removed plastic cover and had a look as I had idea how these work. Called local repair shop and was told to toss it and buy a another one. So replaced spark plug, nothing. Noticed that when cranked and spark plug removed but connected to wire and touching engine to ground, no spark. Did some researched and ended up ordering a new ignition coil for $30. Very easy to replace part, two screws. Started right back up.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

WeedWacker Report

I bought this as a gift for my son-in-law. He had a corded electric trimmer before and wore it out. He wanted an edger. I wanted a trimmer with an edger function. I was disappointed to find that the gas-powered trimmers do not have the head that adjusts to edge like the electric ones have. Also, the gas-powered trimmers do not have the feature of tapping the head on the ground to release more cord, which is really useful. I ended up buying him the WeedWacker for Christmas and an edger attachment for his birthday.

Great when it's working

Overall: I've owned this trimmer for six months but it's only been operational for half that time. It worked fairly well out of the box but seemed under powered. Turns out a casing screw was broken so it was losing compression. Sears fixed it under warranty and I had ten weeks of great operation. The cutting head then metaled and ripped it's self apart. It took Sears three months to admit they couldn't fix the unit and they gave me a replacement. Sears also extended the warranty for three more years which I'm sure I'll be using. My last Craftsman went for 30 years. I'm not expected a tenth of that with this model. Doing it over again, I buy a more expensive Stihl that would last the rest of my life. Pros: When working properly, the unit has plenty of power to cut through thick grass. Unit vibration and weight are good. I bought a shoulder strap to help care the weight and could comfortable trim for thirty minutes. As with any trimmer, you have to be careful with the line. I got plenty of life out of each line if I kept it away from rocks, fences, and other hard surface. Cons: The weak construction noted above. Changing the line if fairly quick and easy - not as convenient as the self extending units I've had in the past, but OK. The unit is a little short for taller people. I'm 6'-1" and have to kept a wide stance to get the unit level with the ground. With the handle in the highest position, the unit is a harder to control. The shoulder strap helped.

Yuck

I bought this a couple summers ago. Like others say...full speed or nothing at all. The clutch is very difficult to engage without killing the engine and really preferred my old wacker that would spin all the time. Cant wait for it to die. Wear earplugs. Has always started fine, but is a real pain to get to run right and I find that it doesn't really seem to work well until I'm done with the lawn.

weed wacker

The grass in my new home purchase was out of control. The weed wacker which I purchased helped me take control of the weeds in no time. I am very pleased that I have bought this item for my home.

Solid WeedWacker

Standard 2-cycle trimmer. Easy to pick up, assemble and start. It kicked over on the third pull. Very much like the easy to replace trimmer cords/

I would recommend this product to a friend.
