      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.

      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.

      Satisfied

      I like this weedwacker a lot. The choke system broke though after owning it for 2 years(may have been my fault...). Took it to the Sears Repair center (luckily my city has one), and they repaired the choke setting and rebuilt the carburetor for free. Thank you Sears (vote of confidence, for once!)

      Not a very good choice...

      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.

      Great machine with new features

      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!

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Great line trimmer!

      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.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.
