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"

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.

Great product

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.

WeedWacker

I bought this WeedWacker thinking that it was going to be on the store, I went to pick up my WeedWacker and they did not had it in stock, so they replace it, which was a good thing.

Overall good

Overall it is a good product but not really a fan of the dual string spool as it is a little difficult to put new string in. Light weight and easy to use though.

Craftsman Weedwacker Gas Trimmer 25cc 2 Cycle Curved Shaft

|

I purchase a lot of Craftsman items and normally I am very happy with them. This is the second weed wacker that I have purchased from Sears. I have not had this for a week and already am having problems with it. When I went to replace the line the piece just fell apart and I can not get it back together again. I am hoping that they will replace the item or at least the faulty part. It is just inconvenient to have to take it in. Hopefully they will help with it.

This works like a dream!

Glad to have gotten this Craftsman weedwacker. It works great! Came with starter oil and seemed a bit lighter than my other craftman weedwacker of the same. Price was exceptional compared to others!

This is actually the second one of this item we have had. Works great! We are rough on weedwackers and this one is by far, a great piece of equipment with a brand we trust!

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

|

If it worked for at least one time i won't write a bad review about this. This sucks!! I am wasting my time on this. Not even able to turn this **** on most of the time. If its worked even though after one hour try it will work for 10 minutes. Then again try for one hour and it will work for 10minutes. It continues like that. Please do not waist money on this. Trust me you will regret.

Posted by Charles K. from Sears Northgate:

Just to be clear, the 2 year warranty is for manufacturer defects only. A full coverage protection agreement can be purchased (if already own the product) by calling 1 800 4MY-HOME. Hope this helps.
