I had a 100'x50' lot with 2-3 foot weeds some very thick. It cut thru them pretty good. Hard to start at first, after the first time just prime it 3-4x and switch to pos 2 and it will start pretty easy. Don't use the precut chunks of line I bought 230 feet of 105mm line it worked good but had to change line a lot but that was because of the unusual thick weeds I had. It is heavy you will need the shoulder strap and if you have a small yard its too big. Love the fact that I don't have to use special gas as well.
after a year the product became hard starting and would not stay running. I dropped it off at the local sears for repairs. they said the carb and internal engine was damages due to stale gas. voided my warranty. so, even after always using fuel stabalizers, draining the fuel after each use. go figure.
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.
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.
every time i tried to start pull rope comes off i only used it twice now i can start it any more wast of money and time
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 ! ! !
Works great. Only a 4 star because of the lines are hard to get.
