This product is fantastic. The 3 step start works like a charm. Amazing how some pple say they couldnt get this unit started, mine starts perfectly every time. Plus it takes practically no effort when pulling the cord to start it. Literally it surprised me to see it come on with that little effort, normally you'll have to rip the cord hard a few times but this model doesnt have that issue whatsoever. And the line is so easy to put in and take out. When used right this product is great
I have had terrible luck with Craftsman products the last few years (edger, mower, drill) but I thought I would give them one more try. The weedwacker looked good coming out of the box but started giving trouble right off the bat. First time I started it yesterday it took a number of pulls and ran a little rough but I figured it was due to being new. I only ran it a few minutes and it seemed to smooth out. When I tried to use it today I followed directions but it took at least 20 pulls to finally start. It ran for less than 5 minutes and never started again. Needless to say I have boxed it up and I will be returning it to Sears today! For those folks who left the few good reviews the only thing I can say is you are extremely lucky.

I bought this trimmer to replace a 32cc machine (also a Sears brand) that had seen better days after many summers of use. This model looks "clunky" compared to my old one, and there are lot more plastic parts. Comes with a bottle of oil and a few medium duty lines. That being said, even fully fueled, this model is significantly more lightweight than my old one. The Incredi-pull system made it a breeze to start (my old unit had this same system, and it always worked well). So far, this 'wacker performs fine for my needs - as long as you're not trying to cut down a forest, it should be up to most tasks. Vibration and noise weren't bad (I wear gloves & of course, hearing and eye protection). Felt no fatigue after about 45 minutes of use, and that's great. My only concern is longevity - the head (where the trimmer line is inserted) is plastic, and on my old trimmer, it was metal. I could see it cracking if you aren't too careful around concrete. For a bit over $100(when on sale) though, I am happy with this weed wacker.
I really dislike this weedeater. Used it 2 times and then went and bought a 68 dollar weedeater with the bump and go string head. -This is a stop and go. the string it uses has to to be replaced every 20 to 30 feet. -Very loud. No really realy loud. -Requires body armour due to the fact that the string used throws everything it touchs at you. More than once i got hit in the arms and face. The string shield does a poor job. -Kinda heavy too. -The string that you need to also hurts when it breaks off. Buy the classic green weedeater with the bump and go head. You will be much happier and save money.

I was debating over the curved shaft one and this one. I am very glad I got this one, I am 6'1" and it is a good length for me. It is very easy to start and works great!
