      25 cc weedwacker

      excellent item for the price, easy to start and is perfect size if you are not 6 foot 2" or taller, it is ideal for shorter people not having to bend over to get the job done, mine has been very dependable and it beats the older models i have had before. I would not recomend this for a very tall person but for me the length and wt is ideal, i give this cutter a 5 star rating..

      Shame on Craftsman....this one tarnishes it's reputation.

      I literally bought this trimmer an hour ago, Now i'm just waiting for the engine to cool off so I can return it. 

        It's a process to get it started following the directions. - prime bulb 10x then place choke to setting 1 and pull 4x.. then move to choke setting 2 and pull 3x... then choke 3 and allow engine to run for 30 sec.. etc.etc.etc.  (I'm not kidding!! It actually lists ALL of these steps to get it started.)  Once started (huff,huff) the engine wouldn't rev to full power without manipulating the choke and once it was actually placed IN the grass to trim... it bogged down excessively!

      The trimmer shaft is way too short (I'm 5'11") and you have to uncomfortably bend over for it to touch the ground.  - If you're 4'9" it would be a perfect fit though.

      I bought this unit to replace my old Craftsman trimmer I had for over 8 years.  The head gasket was blown and it leaked oil/gas and became very difficult to start.  This NEWLY purchased unit is a JOKE compared to all my prior Craftsman products, as I said, Shame on Craftsman for putting their name on this one.  I would definetly NOT recommend this to a friend.

      In hind sight..... I only paid $74 for it at Sears and was hoping that the Brand Name alone wouldn't let me down.  

      Ultimately   -  "You Get What You Pay For"

      Good value for light trimming

      This is a great value product for simple edging and trimming of grass. It could also handle heavier use I'm sure, but this is what I use it for. The cutting cord is slightly thicker than the unit I replaced and I notice it's much more durable. I trimmed my entire lawn and didn't need to advance the cord once! The head stops rotating when the unit is idle, then starts spinning when you throttle it. Takes some practice to get used to the auto-clutching mechanism, but I think it's safer to not have the head spinning when you're not actively cutting. Nice little trimmer, glad I replaced my old one.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      I love my Craftsman weed wacker.

      I have bought Craftsman products for many years and have always been very satisfied with all their products. I purchased another brand in the past but did not get the same results i did with Craftsman. My product did not last as long as my Craftsman product did.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Great Value for the Price!

      We are extremely happy with this purchase. We have a very large yard and were in need of a piece of equipment to help beautify the yard. This works efficiently, it is not heavy, and it lasts for the whole period that we need it to. Very easy to use and get going with each and every time you get it out to use. We would recommend this to anyone with a yard to care for.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Poor quality - be ready for problems

      Bought this trimmer a couple of years ago. Worked fine for about a year and then lots of trouble starting it. Never easy to start unless the electric powered booster was used. When the booster failed, it then became incredibly hard to start. Look elsewhere for a trimmer. Also, the line trimming system is very wasteful. It doesn't jam but you throw away lots of line. Stay away from this piece of equipment.
