Didn't start once

After buying a craftsman gas trimmer (25cc) the trimmer would not start after the 1st time of use. After 45 minutes of following the 8 step process to restart the motor, my arms were jello. I went to the store and purchased this bit start to use my drill to start the motor. No luck at all! Followed the instructions step by step. Tried again the next weekend, still didn't work at all. Product returned.

Works as advertised!


I recently had several surgeries on my right hand (and I am right-handed) which made pulling a starter cord very difficult. I've had my Weedwacker for several years and knew it had the power start option. I bought the Power bit for $9.99, a very reasonable price compared to the power start kit (for about $39.95 if memory serves), inserted it in my drill Huck, and voila, it spun the engine easily and the Weedwacker started right up. My only regret is that I didn't purchase this item years ago!

Great for lazy, fat people like myself. That cord seems like its a 45 min workout each time I use the blower, and weedeater. So now I can do it all in one day.
