<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>
I bought my first one a number of years back with all of the attachments and have been very satisfied with all of them. The motor has the power to run while still being affordable. I would recommend this unit. In fact I just bought one for my soon in law for a Christmas present.
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.
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.
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 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.
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!
