Easy To Use Weed Trimmer

This weed trimmer replaced another Craftman weed trimmer I had for 20 years, and this one is 20 times better.  It's lighter, faster, and easier to use.  I highly recommend it especially for the low price.

Looks great hanging on wall

This trimmer looks great. It is lightweight and adjustable for smaller or taller people. The price is crazy low and easy to lift. If you want to trim your grass with this then you bought the wrong thing. This trimmer does not do what it is supposed to do. The line continuously feeds and then wraps around the spinning shaft. Sometimes the string will actually cut on the cutting blade and fly into your leg which feels great. I even went to Sears to buy a new pre-lined spool in case my MBA did not prepare me to put line on correctly and it did the same thing. I only purchased this because my wife wanted something easy enough for her to use. Well, as you can guess, she has never tried it and I get stuck trying to use it. Do not waste any money on this at all. Go to lunch at Chilis instead.

My review


I got a steal of a deal on this baby! Paid a little over $10 for it and used it all summer long wothout any problems. Cordless would be more convienent but for the price, I cannot complain.

Excellent tool


This trimmer is a replacement for my equivalent eleven year old same brand and apparently same design unit. The thing is as simple and as reliable as a - hammer ? Never let me down, never left me stranded. Always ready to work. Sometimes there is a call for small job that I do not feel like pulling the gas unit out. This thing handles small job or bigger job effortlessly. Easy to refill new line. Personally I do not like battery powered units. Very pleasant to operate, quiet and precise. I tend to set it at one comfortable for me angle, and leave it that way.

Took care of all corner and tight areas


This weed trimmer worked great in tight places. Not noise at all, easy to clean up with a spray.

Nice trimmer


Sears often offer a really good price which you can not find it in anywhere. This trimmer is only $14 and it can get job done as other expensive ones. I love to find a good deal from
