      Ok trimmer
      The trimmer itself is really nice, lightweight and easy to handle but the red line used to actually cut the edges is very flimsy! I tried to pick up thicker line because I was going through one in two seconds and there is not a stronger more durable line that I can use with this trimmer.....very disappointing!

      Bad Product
      After assembling it, added gas mixture and primed per instructions. After about 20 pulls it still wouldn't start, primed it again and after another 15 pulls it finally started. It ran rough but I was able to trim part of my lawn. The following day tried to start it and after about 20 pulls it still wouldn't start so I packed it up and returned. I figured it was just a bad unit so I exchanged it for another. Got the second one home and gassed it up and primed it and this one wouldn't start at all. Returned it and got a refund. I should have checked the ratings before I bought it 40 one star ratings doesn't say much for this product. Craftsman used to make reliable products but I wouldn't buy one again.

      Save Yourself A Headache

      I found this weedeater for sale online...thought that being Craftsman it would be a good brand. Wrong. When it arrived, I assembled it, finally got it started, and the head barely turned even at full throttle. Took it back apart, boxed it up and took it to my local dealer. I told the manager what had happened and he says that in order to get them to start easily you must follow the instructions exactly. He didn't even hear what I was saying! I told him that even though it was hard to start that wasn't the problem. The problem was that the head wouldn't spin. He then proceeds to try to sell me this "easy start" product. What can he not understand??? FINALLY he said that he couldn't replace it because it was an online purchase, but he could give me a gift card for that amount. So.....stupidly, I took the gift card and gave it back to him for the exact same model that he had in the store. I bring THAT one home...(it started a little easier) weed eated for about an hour and all of a sudden it stops. Tried to start it back up and the pull rope won't budge. SO.....I box that one back up, take it to another dealer that is about 40 miles away because I don't want to deal with the first idiot again. They tell me that I probably mixed the fuel wrong and may have locked up the piston and if so, it is not covered by the warranty. It is being sent to the repair shop to determine the cause of the problem. They should know something in 10 to 15 business days. Meanwhile, I have no weed eater but I DO have weeds that are growing quickly. Although I bought this weed eater for personal use around the house, I do own a landscape company. I have blowers, chainsaws, hedge trimmers, etc. All of these are 2 cycle. I DO KNOW HOW TO MIX FUEL FOR THESE ENGINES!!! I have a feeling that I am getting ready to get screwed. What little bit of time that I was able to use this weed eater I was not impressed at all. It is very weak and it took two or three times longer to cut what I used to cut with a little cheap Boleans that lasted for 7 years. I DO NOT recommend this product!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      **** in a Box

      Bought it, brought it home, followed the directions, put the fuel Sears said I should buy in it, DIDNT START, EVER. Don't buy. I should have read the reviews. Only my fault. Returned it for a refund. I will NEVER be back at Sears again. This isn't the first time Craftsman has turned out to be ****. I learned my lesson now.

      Excellent Warranty. Fair in value

      First item I bought, had to return back to store. Will not idle. Throttle will not engage. Had to exchange it for another one. Maybe just defective when manufactured. No problem in returning or exchanging. Second item worked. Bought this item due to a 2 year full warranty and 10 year shaft warranty. Have only used it once and seems to be working fine. Idle and throttle seems to be holding on. Only complaint is engine is noisy with high vibration on the shaft. For the price, value is fair,.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      2nd one, same problem, won't stay running, hard to start.

      I purchased one of these a few years ago at ************. After a single season of work (maybe 4 or 5 individual 1-2 hr sessions) the motor started to run slow and frequently die. I returned the first one to **** within the in store return time and they gave me a brand new one. Now this one is having the exact same problems. Ran great for a few months of work and then started to die out again. Now I don't have the grace of the in store return policy and when I called to get certified maintenance on it the guy a Sears told me that they wouldn't even bother looking at it because they don't warranty it and if I wanted them to fix it the price would start at $99.00 which is approximately the same price that I could buy a new one for. I am really disappointed in this product and the service associate with it. I have wasted hours and hours on this dysfunctional product line. I can't tell you how insulted I am. This is my first Craftsman power tool purchase and my last.

      Easy start, easy cut

      First start after 6 pulls. Good amount of power, minimal vibration, easy to use. I have the craftsman universal edger attachment as well. Works well, however the motor got bogged down when edging an area that hasn't been edged in a long time.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.
