Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Trimmer So far, I am loving the trimmer. I'll give you the pro's and con's. Pro's: Great power upgrade from the electric trimmer I previously owned. It is super easy to start.It is super lightweight.It is fairly simple to work with for things like basic maintenance.Con's:The only real complaint I have with the trimmer is that the trimmer head is annoying when it doesn't auto feed. I had to take the head off and pull the string out 3 times when I was trimming, but I think this because it had cheap string that had melted together. I put a higher quality string on the trimmer, but I haven't used it yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Product is a awesome machine at a reasonable price. This lightweight and durable string trimmer is excellent for not only use around the home but also keeps up with everyday use as in small businesses. Overall an excellent product. Only downfall is the new head on the string trimmer with the two equal pieces of string. I really don't care for it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor construction Had this trimmer for almost three years. After the first year the pull code shredded and was not under warranty. Bump cord release, either took multiple bumps or got jammed up, used correct cord(per manual), supplied by dealer. Then later this year, now will not start, I opened it up to inspect air filter and carb, noticed a tube coming from the "Air filter housing" going to the body just above the fuel tank was disconnected and will not snap back on.
