Avoid like the plauqe

3rd time to use it & go to start/pull cord & hear something snap now hear loose part moving around not sure what it is not going to open up while in warranty. Heres, where the fun begins I call sears, of cource, get an automated idiotbot, that gives me the location to 2 nearby Sears stores, I call the closest & they say they don't do repairs, & to take it to another town to a nonsears tractor repair 25 miles away, I get there & tell me they don't do sears warranty repairs anymore & can't help me any, so I'm sitting in the parking lot of that business trying to figure out what I can do next I'm told to take it to another Sears 50 miles away. So I thought it best to call them first after the BS I have been going thru so far. I talk to employee there & guess what they don't do repairs there either BUT I can come by there & get a repair order & take to some other nonsears business. So I tried to explain, that I'm not their messenger nor their delivery man, & I have had enough BS & want to send it back for a full refund, so this is the limbo I am in now. I have at least 10 calls for about 2 1/2 hours to sears now & 1 hour driving & no better off than when I first started. Sears used to be a good place to buy garden equipment, it's a shame it has gone downhill, this will be my last purchase ever from them.

Second season

Runs fine only problem I came across is the fact if you use the max size line it's a tad hard to feed.

Poor design

|

The mechanism on the pull-string case to make contact with the crankshaft (to start the engine) is plastic. This will melt if you use during the summer. And the pieces on the crankshaft are held on with the weakest e-clips I've ever seen. Both e-clips popped off when the plastic melted (of course this happened on the pull that started the engine) which resulted in 2 metal pieces spinning rapidly around in the plastic housing, shredding the plastic, denting all the crankshaft fins, and can no longer be started via pull string. Bought this product in March 2018, it's now May 2018, Sears told me to bring to repair shop 50+ miles from my house for repair... Craftsman really isn't what it used to be, maybe I'll look into buying a weed wacker from the 70's or 80's. Oh, and it didn't ship with the plastic guard, which I wasn't planning on using anyway, but still... Guess I know why Sears is going under now...
