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!

Not much to say but I had a echo for 12 + yrs. it went dn. so I was looking for my next one to buy I came across this one . so far it was easy to assemble, and put together I read the instruction to make sure I understand every thing cause ea. one are different.. add the gas mix.. pumped it 10x turn the chock to it position and puled 3 x and bam it started right up.. just use for a sec or two to get the fell of it.. and felt real good and balance. haven't yet tried it out on my yard totally yet.. so far so good.. I made good choice.. I have other Craftsman equipment they work just fine.. and yes I would recommends this to others. my only grip is I bought this at the today7/10/14 it was $129.88 and came on line and saw it for $123.00 . don't know why there is a difference in price .. again its only $5.00

I bought this Weed Wacker thinking Craftsman meant quality. I could not have been more disappointed by the performance and overall "quality" of the product. The torx screws that hold it together were loose from the factory. Once that was sorted out/cleaned up it stalls at full power and frequently needs to be disassembled in order to clean tall grass/weeds out of the gear mechanism. I would most definitely recommend beating yourself in the face with a brick compared to purchasing this item.
Just bought this and hd no problem getting it started but it will not cut even a thin row of weeds. As soon as you get into thick stuff it just stops spinning. Taking it back. Very dissapinted.
