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"

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..

Great Buy!

|

I had been looking for a lightweight gas trimmer that I could easily use to do my entire yard without wearing me out. The trimmer started with ease and works perfectly for my yard space. Plus I saved $50 off the price using my rewards points.

Nice product, starts easy and not to heavy to hold and use.

|

I have a large yard so using a gas weedwacker is the only option I have. I have used several different brands and have found them all to hard to start. Craftsman products seem to start the easier. The cutting line seems to come out of the head good with no tangles. Excellent product and price.

Craftsman trimmer

|

Bought this trimmer and took it out of gas and tried to get it to start and it was a piece of ****, machine would not stay on after being on for 20 seconds. Don't let the $74.99 price fool you. Never again.

Good for the price

|

It was a good price, and easy to assemble. I think I was looking for a little more power though. I dont have heavy brush, so it does the job.

Good value for light trimming

|

This is a great value product for simple edging and trimming of grass. It could also handle heavier use I'm sure, but this is what I use it for. The cutting cord is slightly thicker than the unit I replaced and I notice it's much more durable. I trimmed my entire lawn and didn't need to advance the cord once! The head stops rotating when the unit is idle, then starts spinning when you throttle it. Takes some practice to get used to the auto-clutching mechanism, but I think it's safer to not have the head spinning when you're not actively cutting. Nice little trimmer, glad I replaced my old one.

I love my Craftsman weed wacker.

|

I have bought Craftsman products for many years and have always been very satisfied with all their products. I purchased another brand in the past but did not get the same results i did with Craftsman. My product did not last as long as my Craftsman product did.

Great Value for the Price!

|

We are extremely happy with this purchase. We have a very large yard and were in need of a piece of equipment to help beautify the yard. This works efficiently, it is not heavy, and it lasts for the whole period that we need it to. Very easy to use and get going with each and every time you get it out to use. We would recommend this to anyone with a yard to care for.

Poor quality - be ready for problems

|

Bought this trimmer a couple of years ago. Worked fine for about a year and then lots of trouble starting it. Never easy to start unless the electric powered booster was used. When the booster failed, it then became incredibly hard to start. Look elsewhere for a trimmer. Also, the line trimming system is very wasteful. It doesn't jam but you throw away lots of line. Stay away from this piece of equipment.

Ok for light very light work

|

this was base in four different days

is ok but after the four time I used it was turning off every time it will touch the grass I changed the line to a thicker one the black one I don't know if that will affect the performance!

is good but for little areas and light Grass, I was trying to save money and that was the reason I got this one!! and that's the way you learned

That's how I did

I returned the item and got full refund
