Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful; precise trim with low-profile head As a general-purpose heavier-duty trimmer, this Cub Cadet 4-Cycle Trimmer Model SS470 is working well for us on our rural acreage. A light-duty trimmer can handle basic low weeds and trimming around flower beds and the driveway, but a well-designed powerful trimmer like the SS470 is needed to handle the heavy brush, tall weeds, new blackberry bush “volunteers” and honeysuckle vines that keep attempting to reclaim territory you painstakingly cleared two or three weeks ago. The trimmer is exceptionally easy to assemble in a few minutes by following the booklet diagram and instructions. The low profile and 17-inch cutting width makes it easy to get under and around the bushes we do want to keep, like roses, hydrangeas and peonies, while the sturdy shield keeps blowback bits of twigs and debris away from our feet and legs. As always with any trimmer, I highly recommend you wear protective eye shields, footwear and clothing that covers your lower legs. One feature I especially like is that there is no more need to keep a special gas can or forgetting which gas can has the oil/gas mix. The oil goes in a separate tank on the trimmer, and you just add regular ethanol-free gas to the gas tank. It starts without a fuss or hassle. The included shoulder strap is a great asset as the trimmer weighs a hefty 13-1/2 lbs before adding fuel. The contour handle provides a secure grip as well. The one problem I have is storing it as it is topheavy, and I suggest to Cub Cadet that they add some type of harness so it can be carefully hung from wall hooks when not in use or offer the consumer after-market wall-storage hooks specially designed for this and their other similar trimmers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from strong good features week rewind like this trimmer runs strong only complaint is that the rewind didn't last two weeks. have a new one on order hopefully it's a fuke. i like how the clutch keeps the trimmer from turning till you give it throttle. overall nice product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is by far the best string trimmer I have ever had, and not having mix oil and gas is a blessing. It runs very smooth and it is very easy to pull to start it. I have just purchased the SS470, 4 cycle string trimmer and so far it is great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed Bought this trimmer a little over a month ago to replace the 10 year-old model I had ( it performed perfectly) This unit is harder to start, keep running (once it does start) and takes a few minutes to run at one speed once it continues to run. Now it has started to leak oil from somewhere. I can run the unit for 10 minutes turn off and lay it down on the concrete. And when I pick it up there is an oil leak about 3" in diameter under the head. I should have brought it back to Tractor supply but now It's past their 30 day return. Now I need to find a service center to fix this!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's a great weedeater for a man I received the SS 470 Cub Cadet weedeater in exchange for my honest opinion. I'm 5'8", so I'm not short. This weedeater is a little bit too long for me, and also very heavy. If it didn't have a strap with it, there's no way I would have been able to use it. With that being said, it is honestly the best weedeater I've ever used and probably the best one on on the market. It's 4 cycle so the gas and oil don't have to be mixed, and I have always preferred that because it saves time. When I used it on our backyard, it took hardly any time at all. It was fast and easy. But I had to switch the shoulder strap over to my opposite shoulder several times due to the weight of it. I was able to control it fairly well, and putting it together was a breeze. Overall, the Cub Cadet SS 470 is a very good buy for the money, especially for anyone in the lawn care business, as it is fast and efficient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful, lightweight, works great This Cub Cadet trimmer is really nice. A quality made product. It’s lightweight, starts easy, cuts good, has plenty of power and it’s reliable. I’ve had it about a month now and haven’t had any issues. It starts up the first time, every time. Trimming the yard is easier with this and takes less time. I’d highly recommend this product. It doesn’t disappoint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great Works wonders and love that it's gas powered. We have an electric one and we hate having to move the chord around.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good! This trimmer is lightweight and comes with a strap to make it easier to use. It cuts through weeds quickly and I can edge the grass with it too. I can reach under our trampoline to get the little bit of grass that grows underneath it. I haven't used it for any heavy duty work, but so far it is working well with what I need it for.
