Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Out of all of the trimmers that I have owned, this one is by far my favorite. It starts every time with no hassles, pull cord is easy to pull and it's easy to remove and attach the different trimmers. I have a universal edger that I used on my old trimmer and it fits and works just as well on the BC 280. The part I've enjoyed the most about the BC 280, is It's extremely easy to change out the trimmer cord and it only takes one cord! The trimmers are very smooth and responsive and the whole unit is very light weight. The sling that comes with the trimmer is a great accessory as well since my back isn't what it use to be. Overall, I have enjoyed everything about this trimmer and I can't find any cons to give

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! The Cub Cadet was very easy to assemble and everything I needed to get started. My home sits on a fenced in acre lot with several large children's toys and I was able to weedeat it all with ease. So far this product is great and seems to be made very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great trimmer! I’m not use to using a trimmer, usually I try to get what I can with the lawnmower. I’ve always been a little nervous about using a trimmer, but there really isn’t anything to be nervous about! Thanks to this trimmer my yard has improved tremendously! There is a good amount of power behind this tool and I was able to tear down thick weeds and grass without effort. I’m still learning how to maneuver the brush cutter attachment, but while using it, I was able to take out some dry brush and some of that invasive kudzu! I’m impressed! It was easy to put together, easy to use, and just an all around great trimmer!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bolt holding air filter keeps breaking Have tried to use it for 4 months. Bolt holding air filter housing keeps breaking. Bad design. Where you hold the handle, your had rest on the air filter cover, plastic top keeps coming off threaded bottom. Now has broken for 3rd time. Trying one mfg is sending, if that doesn't work will return it under warranty. Also, had to take it to their service center (30 miles away) to tune the carb....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for my yard. I had an electric one but really wanted something with more power. I tried the cub and it was perfect. It is not too big and even my wife can use it. It even edges the yard as well. I really enjoy this and would recommend it to anyone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY I purchased this weed eater about a year ago, And when I first used it it was great, I never had any trouble. Fast forward to now, i am currently on my 4th one(thank goodness for replacement plans). The first 2 I purchased lasted about 3 months a piece. I had 2 broke pull cords and a wore out head out of them. Now mind you I only weedeat for about 30 to 45 minutes each time I mow. So each of these only had a few hours a piece on them. Then last month the weed eater I had only used a handful of times this season and was brand new. Absolutely would not start(stopped half way through my yard). Then while trying to get it to start back the entire pull cord assembly broke. Now 3 weeks later I am weed eating around my house with the brand new one and it stops running and the bull cord breaks. Saying I am fed up is an absolute understatement. People pay a lot of money for these products and they are completley unreliable. I dont have time to take a brand new weed eater back to get it replaced every week. For this to happen 1 or 2 times I understand, but for this to be the 4th one??? This will be the last cub cadet product that I ever purchase and you can take that to the bank. Oh and I purchased a wheeled sting trimmer, which I am currently on my 2nd one. So we shall see.......

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features This 2 cycle gas trimmer is a hoss. It comes complete with a 27cc motor, fixed line straight shaft trimmer, and brush cutter. This trimmer is Ideal for medium to heavy-duty use. It will sling the grass and then some with a 17-inch diameter. My husband has used and owned many other brands expensive and cheap. This one is by far the best he has ever owned. He trimmed knee-high grass, weeds, honeysuckles, and 3/4 in poke salad in a 30x60 feet space for close to an hour. He used it around trees, fencing, and some center blocks. The trimmer never slowed at all, and the fixed line was amazing. He never had to change out the string. You can tell he used it but it still has a lot of life left on the string. His old trimmers it would have taken hours with multiple string changes and tangles. No more for hum, he is spoiled and will never go back. Less time doing chores and more time for family. As mentioned above it is a hoss. He is 6.0' foot tall, and 230 lbs. He had to use the strap. It made it so much easier and spread the weight of the trimmer. Typically he just wears safety glasses and doesn't get much grass up that high. If you are not careful it will cover you up. He recommends trying it out in an area not so bad. The manual recommends tilting the trimmer head down 30 degrees and slightly right, also cutting from left to right. This helped a lot. The brush cutter is good on smaller brush, 1/2 inch or less. It worked ok, but I wouldn't use for thick brush. It came in the box almost complete. He had to add the cutting shield, barrier bar, and clip-on strap. The trimmer shaft and brush cutter shaft just slides in and locks in with a pin and twist knob. Both are easy to change in and out. If you have a mower with a pull behind cart you can have it all with you and change in and out with ease. It came with a can of pre-mixed 2 cycle oil and gas, a packet of oil mixture, 6 extra sting that is super easy to change out as well. No more having to remember which way does twine, holding all together as you try and put in back in the head unit. Especially those double string trimmers. Like I said above my husband will never go back. You can tell just from the feel and function of the trimmer and motor it is made of good quality and will last for a long time. The manual gives all the information as far setup, trimming, maintenance and storing. If you are on the fence about getting one of these go to the store and hold one of these bad boys. You will see the difference and new features that make it better than others.
