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.
Seriously, this is a piece of junk. I've had this a year. It has never started well. Always runs poorly and has no power. Of course, it clogs easily. Not worth your money, your time or the aggravation.
First, I have to say I was surprised to see all of the negative feedback on this weedwacker. Right from the get-go I was impressed. Out of the box the assembly was a breeze. I had grabbed my tool box and drill expecting a few nuts and bolts but all it required was a philips screwdriver. The next morning I filled 'er up and she performed exactly how you'd want it to perform. The string it comes with is phenomenal and seems to cut whatever I've put in front of it. I'm very happy with the WeedWacker, especially with the option of interchangeable tool shafts. Something I noticed the negative reviewers didn't seem to mention, is that, every internal combustion motor has a break-in period. I've been building nitro powered and gasoline powered model RC cars/trucks for years and can tell you from experience and with confidence, that every internal combustion motor, regardless of fuel type, will not run perfectly when it is brand new. It MUST be broken-in before you can expect it to performance at its best. And this WeedWacker is no exception. Overall a great product and would absolutely buy again.
Bought this assembled and it started very easy. No power what so ever. Bogs down under a light load. The single line string is terrible line doesn't last long at all and is a pain to change. I bought this as an open box at a wholesale auction for $50.00 what a waste of money. If it had the power it would need the head changed to a bump feed

My wife brought this home for me on Father's Day I was all excited got out of the box looks very nice good looking trimmer put it together put gas in it started right up with in pulls but it's junk it doesn't even cut it blows the grass over sounds like the air intake needs adjusted adjusted
The price is tempting, but every time you try to start it and your blood pressure makes you want to smash the trimmer into a thousand pieces you will wish you spent the extra $50 for a better product. I wish I did...going back out to try and start this...I bought this about a year ago. I have taken 10 years off of my life...do not buy!!!
