A great replacement for a Craftsman 4 cycle Weedwacker

I bought a Craftsman 40cc Weedwacker about 8 years ago and over a period of time, I also putchased the attachments for it; leaf blower, pole chain saw, hedge trimmer, etc...I have about an acre of grass and bushes with lots of concrete edges and many plantings that need trimming. When the 40cc engine finally died after many, many hours of faithful duty, I gave it a decent burial and started searching for a replacement that would be compatable with the attachments...I settled on the 30cc newer model and have been very pleased so far with it so far...I also purchased the connector devise that can be used to start this engine, but the pull required without it is so easy, I don't really need it. All of the attachment fit fine and the unit seems to have plenty of power even though to is 10cc smaller....It is much lighter also.....A very good buy.

The starter on this trimmer is junk. Had it to the shop under warranty 5 times in two years. Sears keeps fixing just until it got out of warranty. Asked for a replacement the first year they refused and keep fixing it. It been in the shop for this problem more than I have been able to use it, because when dropped at the store for repair it takes at least 2-3weeks before getting it back.

I owned a Troy built for 6 years and all of a sudden everything broke on it at once, more hassle to fix than worth. I searched and could not find the same type for close to the price i paid. So I happened on the sears site found this model with a coupon code. picked it up in store next day and took it home. Unboxed the machine put the few little things together, gave it some gas filled up the oil and pulled the rope. To my pleasure it started right up and ran like a champ. I used it for about two hours and still going strong. It gets a little heavy after a while but it pays off when i get in some thick brush, I pull the trigger further and the 30 cc 4 cycle torque kicks in and cuts whatever is in the way. I have used others that cost 400 dollars and i feel my craftsman that i paid a third is better. Also looove not having to mix oil and gas.

Pull cord does not last


Love the concept of this. And when it works the edger is awesome. Unfortunately the pull cord broke soon after purchasing. So we had to buy the speed start device. You have to ask yourself, was this starting option put on there because they knew you would have to either buy the speed start tool or buy a new weedwacker. Craftsman used to focus on quality unfortunately they have lost sight of why people bought their products and have cut corners.

Toatally bad product


This gas trimmer worked for about 10 hours, second season the recoil cord broke and was not repairable. Had to completely disable the trimmer. Finally determined that it wasn't worth the effort. Threw it out. Will never buy a craftsman tool again.

Weed trimmer


My husband loves his new weed trimmer, craftsman products are all we buy. He especially likes that he doesn't have to mix gas and oil any longer.

Craftsman 30 cc


This is a great machine for the price. Easy to start even without the speed start tool. Light weight and easily maneuvers. I would definitely recommend this product.
