Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent performance! I am completely happy with this weed trimmer ! We have a pretty large yard which requires a pretty good bit of time to do. I love that it is light and longer than most (I am tall) and has a very comfortable grip. During hours of weed trimming, I am not leaning forward to get the hard to reach areas. It was a little difficult to crank at first but I'm sure that was from being new. No problem since!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cuts like a dream I got this for my husband, he was previously using an electric weed eater but dragging the extension cord they the yard is a hassle!! This weed eater is great, a little hard to get started but one it is works like a charm!! Love that it dosent use the spooled line! It comes with pre mixed gas and extra oil and can run other attachments as well...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Trimmer Cub Cadet has a great reputation for making good products and this trimmer is proof of that. It runs on non ethanol fuel which is great. Once you get it started (yes it takes a couple of tries initially) it works great. It's a little heavier than other trimmers but don't let that discourage you. I found it easy to use have had it a couple of weeks and look forward to continuing to use it during the summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing It's really easy to use not complicated so even first time to use you will not be stress. Weight is just about right so you will not get tired easily and make the job even better. Very comfortable to use and handle is amazing. Not maes very loud noise as its turn on or while using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Quality Trimmer!!!! I got the Cub Cadet SS 270, and i was trimming and edging my yard with it today. First of all this Trimmer is very light for such a solid good quality Trimmer, it is very easy to hold with the handle and the grip, and because it is very light it is easy to move.The strong motor and the line makes cutting easy.The control/cut off switch is all at one area by the handle, which i like. The ease of loading the Cutting String is great.This SS 270 makes it fun to get my yard looking nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What's Not to Like?!!! Right out of the box, this unit was ready to use after simply attaching the handle and guard. The first thing I noticed was the placement of the choke control. Most trimmers I've had in the past have the choke located on the side or the bottom, but this model's conveniently located on top of the motor, making it much easier to operate. This is my first experience with a fixed line head and found it is extremely easy to load the string. The large sized string is also long lasting. The engine is powerful and doesn't bog down. I especially liked the fact that it's a convertible unit and I'll be able to add other attachments as needed. This is not only cost saving, but space saving as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lite and Powerful I love the weed eater, it's lite, and enough power for me, easy to run. Easy to put together, instruction right on the weed eater. My husband used it, it is not long enough for him, he is 6', he had to bend over. If an extension is available, would be great & he would love it. Weeds don't seem to fly, which is what he likes, so he can cut with the mower

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Weed Eater EVER!! WOW, This thing is amazing!! I wish I would have discovered it a long time ago! It took down the weeds, like they were nothing! It's Heavy Duty, well made and starts instantly everytime. It takes down the weeds the first time, No need of going over them again! It's pretty heavy, so you might want to use a strap. I would definitely suggest this weed eater to everyone!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome tool Fabulous gadget for your average home owners. It’s performance is probably on par with professional trimmers, but the Cadet SS220 is a light weight, compact trimmer that makes is easier to operate and store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Long and Narrow! I finally had the chance to use my SS270 trimmer. The rain has caused an overgrowth on everything, It is easy to assemble, no special tools needed. I followed the instructions, filled it with TRUFUEL and prepared for the long day ahead. My mom has a large piece of fenced property with a run-off ditch, all the way around. I needed to cutback the narrow side, that the lawnmower couldn't get. The weeds had just about strangled out some nice raspberry bushes. It took a few pulls and the trimmer started right up. I was able to reach far enough across and cut the weeds without hurting the bushes. My hands and wrists felt some vibration but nothing unbearable. The straight shaft helped in maintaining balance as I worked. I had to stop and start several times. Each start-up was easy, no issues. My arms did experience some fatique. This is a heavy duty, great trimmer for big jobs. I recommend buying a strap for added support. It took a couple days but the ditch is cleared!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Trimmer Got the trimmer for my husband to use and he was happy with it. Came with a can of fuel which I like very much. Very easy to assemble and to handle. I really feel this trimmer it did a great job cutting the weeds plus it did the little edges on the hard to get places. It took my husband less time to cut the weeds too. I recommend this trimmer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Club Cadet lives up to its name! Just had chance to try out the Club Cadet Weed-eater, Very easy to put together. Even through following directions, it did flood at first. Easy fix - just clean the spark plug. It is very tough on weeds. Easy to use around buildings and flower beds. Light enough to carry and use. Still sturdy and strong for many years of use. The only problem is how fast it goes through the string. Overall a wonderful weed-eater.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to get started using This weEd eater replaces a worn out one. Biggest difference with this one and my old one one was how easy it was out of the box. I was up and running quickly! Cuts great, rpm’s are high and it’s “angle” of operation leads it to being a bit easier to handle than my old one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Machine Great machine SS270 27cc 2-cycle Gas Straight Shaft Trimmer. It comes with easy directions to put to together and how to use it. I wasn’t sure how I would like the straight shaft. I have always used a curved shaft. But after using a straight shaft, I like it much better. I find it easier on my back. I can stand up straight not bending over as much. It has lots of power to cut down weeds and tall grass. I will be buying some different attachments . I like this weed eater so much. I would recommend it to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great versatile trimmer What a nice surprise to find out that this trimmer also is part of the multi tool family. There are several attachments that you can purchase that extends the usefulness of the trimmer to endless possibilities for landscaping. I have been looking for one of the that was able to attach a hedge trimmer to and the ones that I was looking at are much more expensive than this set up. I have not purchased the hedge trimmer yet but plan on doing so in the future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Little heavy This trimmer works well, it’s a little heavy and hard to move back and forth but the overall function was good. It was easy to operate! It trimmed the grass great and was easy to change the cord on it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product Was hard to start on the first try, but after using it for quite a while, it stopped being hard to start. It seems to be well balanced and had a lot of power to get through tall and thick weeds. The off switch is located in a great accessible spot and it is spring loaded so it resets itself. Great feature! It's a great heavy duty working product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My husband is very happy with this Weed Eater! We already own a heavy duty, brush cutting type weed eater, that is another brand. So, when we were sent this to test, we were excited to see the difference. Our local store carries a lot of items in this brand, so it was nice to put our hands on one. We received the 40:1 fuel with it, so we were able to play wit it the next day. We did assemble it immediately in our dining room though, lol. It is easy to put together. We just needed a Philips, and a flat head screwdriver to do it. This is a two stroke engine, but it starts so easily. Even with constant start/stopping, as we did to test it. No matter how many times we did this, it started back up easily. We put it through the tall grass that had grown under the boat over the winter with ease. We put it along the brick wall border around the house, under our deck, around the edge of our gravel driveway, and it worked smoothly in all areas. The hand grip is pretty comfortable to hold while using it. My husband was able to adjust it to himself, which he was very pleased with. Overall, he is very happy with it. He was eager to try it, but didn't think he would like it as much as his pricey dense brush cutting one. He was impressed with this weed eater, and really enjoyed using it. It had more power than he though it would, and performed very smoothly for us. Overall, a well made and great functioning weed eater. We could not find one thing to complain about, lol.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than anything I've tried The unit arrived in new product packaging, everything was packed well. The unit easily breaks down into 2 pieces for storage. Assembly was easy just push to connect. The machine was tested before shipping as I had pressure from gas fumes in the tank when i opened it up to pour in the 40:1 TruFuel that was provided in the packaging. Also included were extra fixed length trimmer strings and a cap for each shaft end for use when storing disassembled. Following the starting instructions on the machine label and everything worked perfectly. After 30 mins constant use hand fatigue from vibration was minimal at worst. Though the muffler was hot, the body was fully shielding it so risk of accidental burns was negligible. I will run it again tomorrow but so far I would definitely recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice Product! This product is very easy to start. It's also light weight so it's easy to handle. It run on gas so there's no need for extension cords which can be a hassle. I would recommend this product. It is well worth purchasing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service! I have had this trimmer for over 2 years now. It starts easy and runs great! I just crank it today for 2017 lawn season and it fired right up after two pulls.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from worst trimmer ever this is the worst trimmer I've ever owned. We bought it thinking CubCadet has a good reputation so it should be a good trimmer. WRONG! Have great difficulty getting it started & it will die while in use. Then u have to pull it another 45 times to get it going again. Not to mention it is very heavy. Very dissatisfied!
