Shame on Craftsman....this one tarnishes it's reputation.

I literally bought this trimmer an hour ago, Now i'm just waiting for the engine to cool off so I can return it. 

  It's a process to get it started following the directions. - prime bulb 10x then place choke to setting 1 and pull 4x.. then move to choke setting 2 and pull 3x... then choke 3 and allow engine to run for 30 sec.. etc.etc.etc.  (I'm not kidding!! It actually lists ALL of these steps to get it started.)  Once started (huff,huff) the engine wouldn't rev to full power without manipulating the choke and once it was actually placed IN the grass to trim... it bogged down excessively!

The trimmer shaft is way too short (I'm 5'11") and you have to uncomfortably bend over for it to touch the ground.  - If you're 4'9" it would be a perfect fit though.

I bought this unit to replace my old Craftsman trimmer I had for over 8 years.  The head gasket was blown and it leaked oil/gas and became very difficult to start.  This NEWLY purchased unit is a JOKE compared to all my prior Craftsman products, as I said, Shame on Craftsman for putting their name on this one.  I would definetly NOT recommend this to a friend.

In hind sight..... I only paid $74 for it at Sears and was hoping that the Brand Name alone wouldn't let me down.

Box came tattered and almost more tape than cardboard holding it together. First time to use it, both cords were inside the housing within 5 minutes. Now I have to take this piece of junk back to sears and go to **********. I should have known better.

starting the motor


I love this trimmer, just don't pay attention to the starting directions, start it just like the old ones, when you see gas enter the push bulb choke it and pull, it starts right up.

A little heavier than I'm used to, but works great. Great price, gets the job done! I was able to get the weeds out of my front and back yard in less than an hour.

Gas WeedWacker


This replaces my old gas string trimmer and I am pleased with the first 3 times I've used it. The power is excellent even though this is a smaller engine than many. I was able to easily cut through weeds and overgrown sections of my yard (including small saplings). It is very loud but that is to be expected. I like that the starting instructions are right on the machine but wish it didn't require 5 steps to start.

I like how easy it is to start and is light and easy to use, the string wasn't difficult to restring and that was very nice, some are too hard to restring.

Quick assembly and start-up


I have used it 3 times. It was quick to assemble and start using.
Be sure to read the starting instructions for warming up the engine.

worst money i ever spent


worst weedwacker i ever bought used it 1 time in october once in january and have not been able to start it since. sears protection plan is a joke 1-2 month to repair, with no loaner. i guess the figure if they make me wait, i will go get it repaired out of my own pocket and that is less work for them, pretty good scam as i think about it now. I followed directions to start this but will not start, sears blames the gasoline, i think craftman made a CRAPman product and wont own up to it and make it right. last item i buy at sears....

buyer at your own risk

Very Disappointed


I have always used WeedEater brand in the past. This WeedWacker was on sale for less so I purchased it instead. I use these things hard so I know that they won't last forever, but this one didn't make it through a full summer before the head burned up. I normally get five or six years out of the WeedEater brand.

The product works great. It is lightweight and has good power because it is a gas trimmer. The trimmer handles well and is comfortable to use. I would recommend

Craftsman WeedWacker


This was a great purchase. The price in relevance to the value is remarkable. It is easy to use and easier to store. It gave my yard the extra detail that I was unable to get with just the lawn mower. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who is interested in maintaining a well-manicured yard without dishing out hundreds of dollars a month to a professional. It being a Craftsman product is like icing on a cake. They always stand behind their products.

overall decent weedwacker


Overall a decent weedwacker. I have owned several and this probably ranks mid range. I have not had to replace the line yet so I can't critique the rewinding of the line. I did however find an issue with the ordering of an extra spool. I like to have an extra spool already pre-wound in case the one on the trimmer empties before I am done with the job. Then I can rewind the extra when I have some downtime. The issue is that the trimmer page reccomends one part number for the extra spool but then when you go to that specific part number the part number for the weedwacker isn't included on the list for use with the spool. Don't understand why. I did contact the online help and they directed me to a special part number which was nearly $50 for a new spool. Why would you buy a $50 spool when the trimmer only costs $78. When I have an opportunity I will go to the store and check it out in person. As far as the weedwacker itself. It does bog down in tall or heavy weeds. The solution is to take slightly smaller bits. Not really an issue. Advancing the line is done by the bounce method. I am used to this so I am happy it is on this one. When the line is fully extended it tends to bog down more. The trimmer is loud and you should wear hearing protection. My last one wasn't so loud but the first use I had with this one my ears were ringing at the end. Next time I will wear the hearing protection. For the price it gets the job done.

Great price and functions


This is the second Craftsman trimmer I've bought. Very easy to start up. You do need to read manual first and follow the instructions.
Recommend to use the stabler with gas together.
