This weed trimmer replaced another Craftman weed trimmer I had for 20 years, and this one is 20 times better. It's lighter, faster, and easier to use. I highly recommend it especially for the low price.
This trimmer looks great. It is lightweight and adjustable for smaller or taller people. The price is crazy low and easy to lift. If you want to trim your grass with this then you bought the wrong thing. This trimmer does not do what it is supposed to do. The line continuously feeds and then wraps around the spinning shaft. Sometimes the string will actually cut on the cutting blade and fly into your leg which feels great. I even went to Sears to buy a new pre-lined spool in case my MBA did not prepare me to put line on correctly and it did the same thing. I only purchased this because my wife wanted something easy enough for her to use. Well, as you can guess, she has never tried it and I get stuck trying to use it. Do not waste any money on this at all. Go to lunch at Chilis instead.
I got a steal of a deal on this baby! Paid a little over $10 for it and used it all summer long wothout any problems. Cordless would be more convienent but for the price, I cannot complain.
This trimmer is a replacement for my equivalent eleven year old same brand and apparently same design unit. The thing is as simple and as reliable as a - hammer ? Never let me down, never left me stranded. Always ready to work. Sometimes there is a call for small job that I do not feel like pulling the gas unit out. This thing handles small job or bigger job effortlessly. Easy to refill new line. Personally I do not like battery powered units. Very pleasant to operate, quiet and precise. I tend to set it at one comfortable for me angle, and leave it that way.
My husband loves this trimmer it is easy to handle and saves a lot of time. It helps make the yard look nice and trim. I am very pleased we decided to purchase this trimmer.
This weed trimmer worked great in tight places. Not noise at all, easy to clean up with a spray.
stopped working after 3 uses...had purchased because I had borrowed one from a friend last year and it worked great.
Easy to assemble and easy to use. Love to use as a weeded and as a edger. Couldn't believe the value
Sears often offer a really good price which you can not find it in anywhere. This trimmer is only $14 and it can get job done as other expensive ones. I love to find a good deal from Sears.com.
This is good but not great as a weed trimmer. I would like to say though that it is great when you consider the price paid. It is a bit light and not quite evenly weighted but no gripes for the over all product.
Ver low powered and needs a cord but nice for the price.
the craftsman 12 4 amp electric weed trimmer is a great trimmer for small jobs, wouldnt recommened for thick brush but for small touch ups it great for the price, got it on sale and cc discount cant beat theat
I am giving this an average rating because fit looks ok. However, the assembly instructions are extremely poor. There are only two steps but I can't get the parts together so I don't know how well it works. Craftsman used to mean a top quality product.
Its tiny AND powerful! It's light and easy to handle.
line gets tangled around the weed eater constantly.
Bought this one for Spring trimming not use it yet, although it is very good price for Craftsman 12" 4 Amp Electric Weed Trimmer
I hope it will help me to trim all the weed around my house.
Excellent weed wackier for my small yard. Haven't had any trouble with it love that it's lightweight and can be adjusted in several ways. The head can be adjusted for different angles and it also has a nice edger so u don't hit anything u don't want to hit. Good quality craftsman for the money .
Item is small enough and lightweight enough that I feel comfortable attempting the :yard work" Love that it is electric and I don't need to concern myself with oil/gas mixing.
I purchased this because I am currently on a strict budget. So this fit what I needed economically. I was concern that it may not get the job done. which is basically trimming the grass around the house & around my bushes. It is doing an excellent job so far. I have not changed the the line yet but I am please so far. It is much easier to use than my gas weed eater that I have to mix part oil & gas. Also I just press the button & go. Thumbs up so far.
OK so it is light & not a petrol engined brute but is works really well & does everything I need, provided I do not over push it. Heartily recommended
