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"

The shaft could be slightly longer for tall people.

GREAT!

I have had many weedwackers over the years, but none have worked as easily and well as this one. I liked using it so much, I even went to my son's house to weedwack his lawn.

NOT a lightweight

|

Sears classifies this unit as lightweight. This unit is described as "light duty". Was this a search parameter error? Duty and Weight are two entirely different things. I had refined my search for a lightweight gas unit and this was one of the ones that came up. When I bought it the sales rep. carried the box to the car for me and therefore I didn't realize until I got home and pulled the box out of the back just how heavy it was. No way was this a lightweight. I returned the unit. They said this was the lightest one they had in stock. I have an older craftsman weed whacker and my old one is far lighter than this one. Couldn't find anything in the specifications that provided the actual weight of the unit. Disappointing experience and a waste of gas for the trip.

Great Weedwacker

This was just what my customer was looking for. I've already bought several for other customers. Keep up the good work.

The WeedWacker is an excellent tool. The gas is very easy to mix. The instructions for staring the unit are clearly printed in a readily viewable area and most of all the unit starts quickly.
The power is excellent while cutting through weeds and grass.
So far...so good.

Craftsman Trimmer

|

I bought this one for this years up coming mowing season. I have used it several times. It has been good for the light work around the house. Its easy to start as long as you follow the starting procedure. It has been a good product. I would buy this trimmer again. It comes with a good price.

Don't buy!! Sears and Craftsman are of little help

|

I have used this 6 times. Sears and Craftsman expect you to in the winter, because now it is 9 months old and will not stay running. I failed to weed wack in Michigan in the snow. Sears will not replace it, but offered to fix it. Plus, you have to constantly pull grass out of the head. Craftsman has turned to ****. i would have a better product with 29.99 homelite. don't waste your money

The unit costs only $77.00 if this is you 1st edger it's an inexpensive way to get started

|

The unit itself isn't so bad,but it has the old way of bumping the head to advance the cutting cord.
This system could be a pain when needing to replace the cord The new system allows you to
slide a piece of cord through the hole on one side and pull it through the hole on the other side

GREAT FOR PRICE!

|

We have had quite few trimmers and our most recent one which is a really good one has issues with the return spring.. so we wanted to find an alternative without dipping into our pockets too much to purchase and we decided to go with this one... We have used this about 10 times now and it works great. .Starts right up and def. does do its job on our yard... Craftsman is a great brand no matter if you buy the cheaper product and more expensive products not too mention it automatically comes with the warranties..
