Good so far, but will keep watching

I read most of the reviews and focused more on the bad ones to see what could go wrong... Regardless, I still bought it. It is definitely more powerful than my last one (Craftsman 2-stroke, forgot how many cc) but lasted me for about 10 years. I wanted the Craftsman because of the old edger attachment I have, and the new chainsaw attachment. Easy to assemble, fired up quickly after following the steps on how to start it up. The first time I used it was with the chainsaw attachment, and I loved it!!! Just yesterday was the first time I used it to trim my grass - very powerful (again comparing to my last one). I got nervous a bit when I tried to start it, and it wouldn't start. I repeat from Step 1 again, and it started easily. I did a lot of weed whacking, and after that, I removed my garden rubbery gloves, and that's when I noticed that I got blister on my forefinger, probably because pressing the trigger for the entire time. Other than that, I am pretty happy with this purchase, but there is this doubt hanging on top of my head - how long would this last before it shows problems like what other buyers have experienced?

Typical Craftsman

I was at my dad's doing some work and needed a trimmer. The only store that was close was a Sears, so I bought the 4 cycle expecting better quality. I used it about 6 times in just under 2 years and the engine is shot already. Craftsman makes great hand tools, but the power equipment is worthless. This is the third and last time that I bought a power tool with the Craftsman name on it.

Pure Junk


First use the pull start broke. Switched to the drill attachment. Always hard to start. Now after two years, the drill attachment just spins and no starting.

POS - Has broken twice - if could give Zero stars I would


Got this unit new and it has been leaking oil ever since. The pull start stopped working so I brought it to Sears Service to have the oil leak checked and pull start. Got an email that I should watch the oil level. I do since it leaks. They only repaired the pull started, I guess oil leaks are standard. The pull start broke again. I went back to the same store and Sears no longer accepts repairs and the repair center is an hour away. No wonder people are running away from Sears as a brand.

Don’t Understand Bad Reviews


This weed eater works great for me. It might not have as much power as the two cycle but it is close. I have most of the attachments and it has plenty of power for all of the attachments to function at full capacity.

JUNK ! ! !


This piece of junk is worthless. It ran okay for a month, only used once a week, then started to sputter and die continuously. Now 2 months later it won't start. What a waste of money. DO NOT BUY ! ! !
