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>

Best weedwacker I've ever purchased!

After I assembled the weedwacker, it started and worked like a charm. I was able to clean the fence line and the yard in half the time of using an electric weed eater. I am well pleased with this item.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Get's the job done!

As a huge fan of 'weedwacking', for some reason I find it theaputic, this weed trimmer never disappoints. I sometime spend over two hours sprucing up our yard and this trimmer leaves a great clean line. Only disappointed it only makes thru two summers. Just wish it had a longer life span.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good Basic Weedwacker with attachment capability

Bought the same model two years ago. Had pretty good luck with it so when it gave up the ghost (probably ethanol and carburetor problems) I bought the same one. Started right up - haven't used any attachments with it but appears powerful enough.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

GAS HOG

i purchased a lower end Craftsman model hoping to be able to eventually get an attachment to cut thicker brush. I went to buy one to find out I could not get one. So I was talked into buying the higher end model with inter-changeable attachments. After buying this WeedWacker, it turns out that it uses A LOT more GAS and i have to run at a higher RPM than my other weed eater. What took me 45 mins to do with the this weed wacker, I was able to do the same amount of work in about 15-20 mins with my lower end model. I am not impressed at all. I would definitely NOT buy this product.

just a little heavy

after my son broke our other weed with her it was time to purchase a new one I was a little hesitant in getting a gas with her because I was not sure on how strong I would have to be to handle it. I do notice that it is a little bit on the heavy side being that I am pretty petite. This is much stronger than our last electric with her that we had maybe a little overkill for what we need I tried to tell my husband all we needed was the light duty but you know how guys can be ;-). this weed with Willie does the job it is much faster than my other one but I do notice problems on keeping it started maybe it's just me since I'm used to only using electric ones I would definitely recommend buying this!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Sucks

This is as bad as a craftsman that I bought several years ago that would not start until the bulb was pumped at least 20- times and then i would have to pull the cord at the least 15 times. My wife bought this even though I objected because it could be started with a drill motor and she thought that would be the cats meow. Well it was not. it would NOT start the second time we tried to weed eat the yard. She took it back and Sears couldn't get it started so they talked her into taking another one. What a piece of **** Sears is.

My First Weedeater

This is so easy to use. From bringing it home and taking it out of the box to assemble to actually going out in the yard using it. I love my new toy!!
