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.  

Ultimately   -  "You Get What You Pay For"

I love this weedeater. I had an electric one but it was a hassle puling that cord across the yard major pain giving me alot of extra work. Now its easy to start and light weight for easy to use.

never again.

I've bought Craftsman for 50 years. Guess everything is poor quality now no matter where you get it. Low power light weight I guess should have told me it would not hold up well. Part of a season of light use. Now I changed fuel and plug for start of summer. Bump **** won't loosen to replace string. Cheap plastic. **** they make polymer gun frames that hold up but to cheap to use good material on this.

Overheated and weak

|

This trimmer is just trash... I followed the instruction from A to Z.. Mixed the oil that came with the package based on the manual. This trimmer gets overheated alot and it is very weak and loud. It's horrible trimmer. I bought the Craftsman lawn mower and I am not having any issue.
