Our family only had this weedwhacker for about 2-3 weeks before it began to take a turn for the worse. It didn't want to start at all. We exchanged it for a new one and that didn't help much either with the same problem. We took it to a mechanic and he fixed it, but after another 2 weeks now the head of the weedwhacker doesn't want to start. Not to mention that you'll ALWAYS be buying string for this model depending on how big your lawn is and strong the string is. I would not recommend this model to ANYONE.

I had an old Craftsman WeedWacker and it kind of got old. I decided to go with a new one and decided on this particular model. I made the purchase online and picked it up at the store. To my surprise there is a new mechanism where you are able to feed the string into a new system that they created. It is much faster and the machine seems to run smoother than the last one that I owned. I love this machine. it feels lighter than the last one that I had as well. I love the straight shaft and the easiness of string feeding. It made my job a heck of a lot faster than the last one that I had. For the price I cant complain. It definitely does the job and it does it well. I also have the edger attachment and I was able to use it on this model as well. Great little machine that performs bigger than it actually is. I love it!
Works great and the modular attachment system is awesome an idea. Starts great and runs great. For those of you that can't start your trimmer, my SEVEN-YEAR-OLD step son starts this and can trim with it. But, there's good fresh gas in it, and he follows the prescribed starting procedure. It you are having problems, there's a 90% you didn't follow the starting procedure - or you're using old fuel. All my fuel gets treated with fuel stabilizer. Never have any fuel related problems. Gas begins to break down in a month. If your gas can has fuel in it form last season, you're shooting yourself in the foot. Gas has a shelf life. Use fuel stabilizer. Anyways, I would buy this trimmer again. In fact, I am buying the blower attachment now.

This is the second gas powered trimmer I purchased from Sears. The first lasted 7 years with no issues until a total engine failure. Figured I would purchase another Craftsman since the product was reliable in the past.

Do not buy this and waste your money. It is under powered, doesn't even cut the grass or weeds. The motor is so underpowered that when you put a new string in the engine bogs down, runs better when string is shorter. Also the string has to be replaced when it gets low. You have to stop and re-feed a new string. Absolute horrible design, its a pain to replace and I would rather be able to do my whole yard, rather than have to stop partway in to change the string. As said before by previous reviews it does take several pulls to start. Craftsman advertises this as a multi function/tool machine. I couldn't even imagine trying to use the other attachments due to the lack of power. Luckily this was a gift for me. If I could return it I would!!!!!!!!!
