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"

Great Reliable Craftsman Products

I purchased my weed eater, approx 14 years ago. With a little maintenance, every year. It still never fails to start first time. By the way, to keep it starting every time. Use premium 93 octane fuel, e.g BP, Exxon, Shell and Chevron. You will never have any problem with the fuel systems.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great WeedWacker

I bought this for my husband for Father's Day and he loves it. It is light weight and easy to use. He did say that he had some trouble getting it started but once he did it has worked great.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

week very week

It is what it is you get what you pay for I bought this on sale for about $55 dollars as soon as you hit grass it bogs down and if you hit high grass or weeds for get it ...it barely gos good for trimming the fire hydrant and electrical boxes that's about it the only reason I bought this is because it was only $55 and I wanted something new seems to run a little bit hot we'll see how long it last would I recommend this no not at full price anything higher than 2 inches it has problems with very very week the automatic feed does seem to work well though so thats a plus its worth abut $50 and that's it no more

Weedwacker Gas Trimmer

I am very pleased with my new Weedwacker Gas Trimmer. I have gone through several other gas trimmers from other retailers and I find the Craftsman trimmer to be the most satisfactory of them all.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Wonderful Value!

I couldn't be happier with this weed wacker. It started 1st try and was nice and strong. Well built in my opinion, the line stayed intact and we only had to get more out 2x while trimming around 52 trees in my front yard.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Excellent value and works well!

I used my SYWR to get this item for a lot less and I could not be happier. It is a very good trimmer and cuts what it needs to perfectly. You will not be disappointed in buying this. Solid trimmer for the price.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great price

Caught this on sale with free can of oil/ gas. Great price compared to other weed eaters only thing that would make it even better would be easier start. To much pull on this level and that level to go through to get started 1st time. Other than that great addition for less than 70 bucks on sale.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
