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.

Great WeedWacker

I bought this for my husband for Father's Day and he loves it. It is light weight and easy to use. He did say that he had some trouble getting it started but once he did it has worked great.

week very week

It is what it is you get what you pay for I bought this on sale for about $55 dollars as soon as you hit grass it bogs down and if you hit high grass or weeds for get it barely gos good for trimming the fire hydrant and electrical boxes that's about it the only reason I bought this is because it was only $55 and I wanted something new seems to run a little bit hot we'll see how long it last would I recommend this no not at full price anything higher than 2 inches it has problems with very very week the automatic feed does seem to work well though so thats a plus its worth abut $50 and that's it no more

Weedwacker Gas Trimmer

I am very pleased with my new Weedwacker Gas Trimmer. I have gone through several other gas trimmers from other retailers and I find the Craftsman trimmer to be the most satisfactory of them all.

Wonderful Value!

I couldn't be happier with this weed wacker. It started 1st try and was nice and strong. Well built in my opinion, the line stayed intact and we only had to get more out 2x while trimming around 52 trees in my front yard.

Craftsman WeedWacker�? Gas Trimmer 25cc* 2-Cycle Curved Shaft

Works fine and I particularly like the .95 string and the screw on and off piece that used when changing the string

Excellent value and works well!

I used my SYWR to get this item for a lot less and I could not be happier. It is a very good trimmer and cuts what it needs to perfectly. You will not be disappointed in buying this. Solid trimmer for the price.

Great price

Caught this on sale with free can of oil/ gas. Great price compared to other weed eaters only thing that would make it even better would be easier start. To much pull on this level and that level to go through to get started 1st time. Other than that great addition for less than 70 bucks on sale.

Great So Far

My previous Craftsman String Trimmer lasted 10 years before it died. I thought this was reasonable, so I bought another one. This one seems similar to the last and is working fine so far. Some find the startup procedure tedious, but if you follow the directions exactly, it starts easily and every time.

Good purchase

I am very pleased with my new craftsman 25cc weed eater. It starts easily and cuts very well. I would recommend this product because of its quality and reasonable cost.I have had more expensive models that didnt do as good a job as this one.If you are looking for a dandy weed-eater then look no further....this is the one.

Easy to Assemble and Easy to Use

It took me under 10 minutes to put this weed wacker together and I was out in the yard putting it to good use in no time. I would recommend this item to anyone who is interested in purchasing a weed wacker and doesn't want anything too clumsy or complicated.

Works great

There's reviews about the weed wacker not starting... To those, I ask, have you ever used a 2 stroke engine before? Starts great. Has enough power for what I use it for. Like others have said, if you're over 6'2" the shaft if probably a little short. Perfect for me and I'm 6'.

For the sale price this is a good trimmer. It's a bit short for us taller folks but it gets the job done.

My weedwacker is 1 year old and hardly used. It will start but will not idle or rev to full speed. If I play with the choke I can get it to run smooth for a little while which leads me to believe that the air fuel mixture has to be wrong and you need special tools to adjust this piece of ****. The same compliant as other people is that I bought this trusting the Craftsman product name and it failed to produce. I own a lot of craftsman tools and have almost always bought nothing but Craftsman when it comes to tools. Maybe not any more when it comes to power tools.

Good weedeater.

Seems like a good weedeater, only used once. 4 stars because it doesn't start as easy as it should.

How long is the warranty on this product good for?

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.
