Gets the job done

The brush cutter attachment for my trimmer overall does a good job. It was very easy to attach to the trimmer. Once I had it attached, I started the trimmer and began to cut brush. When you first pull the trigger, it wobbles a bit and is loud, but once it gets up to speed, it levels out and works well. I began just trying to cut one piece of small brush at a time. I was trying to use it like a chainsaw. It worked, but took some time. Then I began using it like a trimmer. I began using a swinging motion from side to side to sweep the area I was cutting. This was very effective. It took down every piece of brush in its way on the first try. Other than it being a lit wobbly in the beginning, I think this is a great attachment. It has saved me a lot if time. I would recommend this for anyone looking to clear out some brush.

Hard to use

This cutter attachment adds a lot of weight to the weed eater. I wanted to use it for cutting berry bushes however it doesn't cut them well. Seems I wasted my money on this item.

This attachment increases the value of our trimmer. Easy to switch out and the J handle makes the trimmer easier to use too. I plan to purchase limb trimmer attachment next.

This machine didn't meet my expectation. It stated that it will save you time but the only time it saved me was from breaking the machine.

Whacked

I like this attachment. It allowed me to cut down yards in 20 minutes. Unlike the regular edger, were I had to continuously change the line costing me extra time to waste.

The attachment pin SUCKS -but great brush cutter

I purchased this and used it for about 6 months before the attachment retaining pin broke. The button portion just sheared off. The unit continued to work great, but would turn in circles. When I spoke with Sears about it, they replaced it no questions asked! That's customer Service and the reason that I will continue to purchase nothing but Sears branded items!!

Better than I thought

When you buy this make sure you buy a grinder as well because they forgot to sharpen the blade. After you sharpen the blade it is an awesome tool.

Works fine

works great on even stems around 1 inch thick. Great for trimming or removing overly grown rose bushes and other weeds. Takes an extra couple of seconds to cut through thicker bushes. You have to be very careful when you work in gravel or areas with small stones or rocks.. The power depends on your craftsman weed wacker. Mine is I believe 25 cc and it still does a decent job.

Excellent Brush Cutter

Bought this item to cut heavy shrubbery growth in the back yard. Very easy to connect to my Craftsman universal motor and this tool easily cut the shrubs at ground level in less than 20 min. The blade is durable and looks like it will last for a long time. It cuts roots about 1/2"-3/4" round without any problem. Happy with purchase and highly recommend this item.

Speed your Fall Clean-up

This optional attachment attached easily to our Craftsman string trimmer. In preparation for Winter, using the attachment to cut back the various types of perineal foliage and decorative greenery surrounding our home was a breeze to do!

Outstanding item

Attachment was purchased to replace one I wore out. Cannot be more pleased with the ease of installation or the performance of the attachment. Cuts thru brush and small trees up to 3 inches with ease. I only wish I could sharpen the blades instead of replacing them.

works pretty well!

I read all the reviews prior to purchase and noted some references to problems with a dull blade. Someone else mentioned sharpening or alternative blades. All the blade surface including the "cutting edges" had a coat of heavy paint - maybe even powder coat. I knocked that off and went to work. It cut pretty well, but 1"+ sunflower stalks took a little extra effort. After a couple hours' use and admittedly hitting dirt as well, it seemed like it was not zipping the smaller weed stalks off very well, and sort of shredding some of them. The instructions say NOT to sharpen the blade and mention the possibility of blades breaking off after sharpening. I considered that a challenge and studied the design of the blade for a long time. Conclusion: I don't know why the first inch or so of the cutting edge is beveled at all. It has a slight bevel, not a sharpened edge. This tool is a rotating blade. The only real cutting takes place at corner tip of the 'tooth'. I squared that back up on my belt sander, making almost a 90 degree corner. It works better than ever! I don't consider this 'sharpening' and believe the warning is out of concern for creating an imbalanced blade. One star gone for the warning scare and lack of blade instruction. Love it now!
