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.  

Ultimately   -  "You Get What You Pay For"

purchase

I was eventually very happy with this purchase, but it took some work. The purchase was made on line, but when I arrived at the store someone had cancelled it thinking they did not have it in stock when they did.

Decent Gas Trimmer

|

Out of the box, put it to work right away, gassed-primed and started tackling heavy brush and weeds. The Trimmer powered through with no problems.

Great purchase

|

I recently purchased this item along with a lawnmower. This item was light weight when we picked it up from the store. The instructions were simple and it cuts great, especially in those hard to reach places around our central air unit!

Craftsman 25cc weedwacker works great!

|

This Craftsman 25cc 2-Cycle Gas WeedWacker / Trimmer works great! Use every week. To not have an electrical cord following me around the yard is wonderful.

Like all craftsman products, this was a great value for the money. This product was bought as a light duty weed wacker to use around rose bushes that were a long way from the house. It worked extremely well. It is not a heavy duty machine, but it gets the job done.

Great weed wacker for the price.

This Craftsman 25cc 2-Cycle Weed Wacker Gas Trimmer works great. No more tripping over the extension cord. The curved shaft makes the chore that much easier. Would recommend this to friends and family.

Good tool

This gas trimmer does an excellent job with my lawn. It works perfectly, runs smoothly and it does not consume much gas. So far I strongly recommend this to anyone looking for a weed eater.

winner!

I was frustrated from using an electrical cord and pull it all the way to the corners of our garden, jump it over stones, etc. This enabled me to ditch the electrical trimmer.

25cc 2-Cycle WeedWacker Gas Trimmer

|

After reading the reviews, and talking to a friend, my mind was made up, I bought this one. I needed a good gasoline model for a weedwhacker. It was highly recommended by a close friend of mine, who knows this particular model, and recommended it to me, and it performs beautifully! I like the instructions, the on line owners manual. The Craftsman name, you know you have quality with Sears and Craftsman! The 7 step easy start and easipull system, and the fuel is available right there at the sears store, in the outdoor department where I can buy more string for this thing as well....Another fantastic product from Sears-Craftsman...although it says 25cc, it is about 1.1 horsepower....
