Excellent trimmer
I own a landscaping business and this tripper can take down the toughest grass and brush. It is very easy to assembly and able to breakdown if you want to travel w/ it. The line is super easy to replace unlike most bump trimmer heads. The trimmer starts like a charm. I recommend getting the XQ .95 line it cuts better and will save you time on having to replace the line in the spool. The only 2 downsides are the weight, it is a pretty heavy trimmer so get the sling attachment. It goes through gas pretty fast. one bonus is that you can easily make adjustments to the carb to change your throttle speeds. I highly recommend getting this trimmer.

Terrible Product! Do not buy
Unreliable, have had to purchase several of these, one per year. I made the mistake of buying additional attachements, trimmer, blower. Now I have to have this Gas Trimmer engine or will have no use for the attachements. Do not make the mistake of buying this trimmer or being locked into the attachments. This is a terrible unreliable product.

DO NOT BUY

This product is very unrealiable. Only used once and it would not start after that. Stay away from this and buy another product. Not sure whats going on what with Sears quality control but something isn't right....

Weed wackier

This weed wackier does not require buying the string and winding around the coil. I just buy the package of string and take one out and put it in the coil. Love it.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

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.

Don't waste your money

It's the same thing with all recent craftsman products, say 2000-present, it's made cheap by one of the bigger already cheap brands like MTD. I USED TO ONLY BUY CRAFTSMAN, BUT NO MORE, THEY ARE GARBAGE!!! Save yourself the time and frustration, yes it'll cost a little more but it'll last longer, and work better. I'm to the point I only buy commercial grade, AS A HOME OWNER, stihl saw, echo backpack blower and string trimmer with a brush cutter and edger attachment. Unfortunately I'm still stuck with a YT2000 that was out of commission for 8 weeks last spring/ summer. 4 weeks (electrical issue), 2 weeks (was burning drive belts, manufacturing defects in all YT2000 of 2.5 years ago) and again 2 weeks ( the replacement pedal kit so there is enough tension on the belt to make the **** thing drive). It'll prob die this year or next year, just out of warranty like everything else craftsman does. Then I'll be buying either a simplicity, cub cadet, or ********** (kinda leaning towards simplicity). Just so you know i did have this craftsman trimmer, actually, I had 4 craftsman trimmers in 6 years. First the pull cord will break, then the on/ off switch will go, then soon after the warranty is up the engine will die and your back to spending another 120-200 depending on which one you buy. My echo was 325 and has a 5yr warranty. Sorry for the rant, but craftsman just really pissed me off. Needless to say I will never be buying another craftsman product, atleast for outdoor power equipment. I think their hand tools are still well made. Rusty

Hard to start

It has been hard to start ever since I bought it. Then once you get it started it will not stay started. I think Sears's quality control standards have fallen and they need to work on getting air/gas mixture better.
