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.

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 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!)

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.

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!
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.
