Rated 3 out of 5 by This product was defective when i brought it home. So I decided to quit purchasing cheap through away after one year weed trimmers and splurge on a stihl. It was out of the box, look most sold there, when I purchased at Rural King in Effingham, IL. It fired right up but the trimmer head wouldn't turn so I called the store and all they wanted me to do it return it, except that would of been another 1 1/2 hr round trip back to the store. So after about an hour I figured out it wasn't put together right, because cable wasn't connected correctly.The tank smelled like gas when I got ready to fuel it the first time, so expect it was a returned unit. Or it was fueled to check operation at the store and they failed to notice the defect.......Either way I wasn't very happy.Troy Acree July 25, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by the trim wire gets guard all the time This was a brand new weedeater and the trim wire gets caught in the guard at start up. It was a nightmare and a re real pain in the butt. I would like to return it for another model. Not what i expected at all. July 24, 2016
