Works very well...horrific exhaust though ...

I love sears products and I have 20 years of trimming experience with many different brands... Pros are easy start and tons of power with 22" blade...major defect is the noxious exhaust!!!! I have to wear a mask using it!! I thought at first I mixed the gas wrong but have used this 10+ times and absolutely wreak of gas fumes after every use..thought I was going to pass out using it several times. I wish I had returned it in the beginning but needed it on that day to trim three properties ... I may weld a longer exhaust pipe on it or sell it. Unfortunatly other brands like echo are 2xs the cost. I suggest to anyone using it to wear a heavy noxious fumes mask.

Craftsman 25cc/1.5 cu. in.2 Cycle Gasoline Hedge Trimmer

After only being used 10 or 12 times, in a two year period, it would not start. Ignition coil had to be replaced, which would cost more than I paid for the trimmer. Called the 800# number for repairs. Told it was out of warrenty, nothing could be done. Looks like it just came out of the box and it has to be trashed. How does it go, "fool me once, same on you, etc." Never will happen twice to me. Craftsman bad!

Outstanding trimmer

|

Cuts inch thick as advertised. Strong motor and although it is heavy, handles everything I have fed it so far.

Don't buy It. Temporary Use

|

Used it about 10 times over a 1-year period and the motor seized. I sent it in for repairs and they blamed me for the problem.

I still have my Ryobi Hedge Trimmer which is 15-years old and operating, along with other gas powered equipment that are old and still running.

I resented being told that I created the problem. The problem is with the Hedge Trimmer not my use of it.

When it was working this was the best hedge trimmer I ever used. It absolutely worked fantastic.

Unfortunately after a 1-year period of use Sears does not back it up.

They'd repair it for the price of a new one. I told them to send me back the old one without repairs.

Now I'll have to find a manufacturer that has something comparable that backs up their product. "Sears Doesn't"

This hedge trimmer was easy to prime and start, and easy to handle.

|

The unit is easy to handle although a little heavy for long term use at height. The only issue using this at height is the exhaust fumes. If doing work at a height above chest height I would suggest a suitable respirator.

Recommend!

|

I bought this for my husband after he cut the electric cord with the electric trimmer! This trimmer gets the job done with ease. It's powerful and easy to start. He complains about it being a bit heavy, however, he has a bad back.

Time saver.

|

Replaced an electric hedge trimmer. No more extension cords and took about a third the time. No problem cutting through any of my shrubs. Like the adjustable handle great for cutting different angles of the shrubs. No problem with exhaust like some of the other reviews. Very east to start. Loved how easy it was to cut all my shrubs and made them look better than they have ever looked.

Easy to start and easy to use. Have used it several times and it is a very good, hard working trimmer. I would recommend it to anyone.

Hedger stopped working in the first 10 minutes of use

|

I purchased this hedger a couple of weeks ago and first used it to trim a jasmine bush, nothing heavy duty. Within the first ten minutes of use, the hedger jammed and I could not get it to work again.

One of the best buys I've made when it comes to yard work.

|

bought this trimmer to replace one I bought a few years ago. it works like a charm. The power this piece of equipment has really cut the time it normally takes to trim my hedges in half. Now instead of trimming the hedges every two or three weeks, I do it every week now.

Super smoothe

|

After reading the reviews on this trimmer, I was reasonably confident that it would serve my needs. It did not disappoint. Started right up and handled my seriously overgrown hedges with ease.

One craftsman brand to pass on

|

I debated on which brand hedge trimmer to purchase for 5 months. When I finally decided, I chose craftsman over stihl due to $100 cheaper. The craftsman literally lasted 15 seconds, big twig/branch got stuck in between teeth and it ceased up. Teeth stopped cutting even after I pulled out the debris. Took it right back to sears the next day and went and bought a stihl like I should have done in the first place.
