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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from String mechanism locked up in a month Worst weed wacker i have ever owned. String rewinder is complete garbage. Angle is all wrong on the head. Gas tank has 0 fasteners holding it in place. Its just plastic snapped around it. Does not start well at all. Customer service was bad their only solution qas to take it to a service center. Couldnt return a product i was not satisfied with. My last cub cadet product the quality and customer service are not there

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap and plastic So disappointing to be writing a negative review about a Cub Cadet, I could not have been happier with my old CC trimmer and my current push mower. This trimmer, however, feels so cheap and so shoddily put together I'm just waiting for it to fall apart in my hands. The first time I used it the bolt rattled out of the handle, thankfully I had a nicer spare handle to put on. The string guard is just cheap wobbly plastic so I just use the trimmer without the guard. The engine rattles so badly I can’t tell if there is some sort of problem or if something around it is just loose. There is no space between the engine cover and the engine so the plastic part that rests against your elbow gets just as hot as the engine does. No matter how short I make the string the engine bogs and the whole machine wobbles when I give it any gas so it’s almost like the engine can’t even handle the load of just the normal head. Plus just everything from the grips to the fuel lever to to the choke switch feel so plastic and cheap and ready to break at any moment. I ordered direct from CC and have already gassed and oiled it up so I can’t ship it back and I will use it until it stops but again so so disappointed in CC for this one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from not bad I bought it at ts I wish it was a like 4 6 inches longer im 6 ft tall and have to bend over its also a tad bit heavy but its a 4 cycle motor runs good, if they have a shaft extender would be great I would buy it

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Impossible to replace line This thing worked great for about 2 weeks. Then the bump line feeder stopped working so of course the line rolled up inside. I opened it up to pull out the line - there was lots left - and then looked at the instructions to replace the line. HAHA it must be a joke. Insert the line through the 'entry eyelet' and push it through the head until it comes out the exit eyelet?? What? I've tried that about 50 times and the line does NOT come out the exit eyelet. I can't even believe those are the instructions. Can anyone reading this help me? The line finds a hole on the side every time and never come through the exit. I'm not sure how you're supposed to get that to work.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dont waste your money there service is horrible I purchased a trimmer last summer used it 2 times had to have warranty work, motor locked up. i had to pay for the repair. This summer i had to replace the head because it blew up while weedeating. I ordered the part the second week in June it is July and they have no clue where the part is. They know where the money for the new head is but no clue as to the part. Called customer service and their demeaner was well wait for the post office. So Never again will i purchase from Cub Cadet. Was looking to replace a riding mower this year but i know it will not be from them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from do not buy My wife bought this machine for me for father's day in 2018 and now it's blowing blue smoke worse than a 2 stroke.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed Used this 3 times and terrible performance. Difficult to start, when I finally get it running without stalling following the start instructions, there is very little power and it will eventually stall again, and again. Disappointed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A piece of junk I've had this trimmer for less than a year and it has degraded continually. It is harder to start. Warmup is required. And oil seeps into the carburetor housing. It is at best a dog. Do not waste your money.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great when it worked This trimmer started off great. Lots of power to cut through heavy brush. It is on the heavy side so I would not recommend for everyday use. After using it a few times it wouldn’t run right and had to run it on half choke. After using it a few more times it was difficult to even start and when it started it wouldn’t hardly stay running. I love my cub cadet lawn mower, but unfortunately I can’t say the same for the cub cadet trimmer. I went and bought a Stihl after one year of use with this cub cadet trimmer. Very disappointed with the trimmer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent weed eater! I love this weed eater because it’s powerful while still being user friendly! It’s easy to use and there’s minimal upkeep needed. As a busy parent with a full-time job, I wanted something that got the job done and was simple to use. This weed eater fits the bill. I also like the sleek design, and I really love the comfort grip. It’s easy to use for long periods without my hand getting tired.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from GREAT WHEN IT WORKED. Purchased trimmer June, 2018.Used it 3 times, went to demonstrate to a co worker who was interested in the trimmer. Pulled the rope, motor was froze up. Contacted warranty dept. told me to take it back for replacement at the store i purchased it from. TSC no longer carries this model so they will either refund my money or "send it off" well it has been 3 weeks no word no nothing. Am beginning to wonder if i made a bad decision in not getting my money back. Sthil has comparable model for less than i paid. Any Suggestions???

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great, definitely a good one I'm always happy to try out a garden tool that doesn't require a cord. This gas-powered weed trimmer was effective, easy to use, and though a little noisy (what weed trimmer isn't?), I'm happy that I got it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product We used this to weedeat our entire yard because we live on very uneven terrain that is difficult to mow. It edges very nicely and you could tell that it was built well. The sturdiness of it did make it a little heavy, but we also were using it for the entire yard so it could just be our lack of muscles. It was really nice to have everything that you needed to get going in the box (oil and gas). The gas fill is kind of at a weird angle so if you have it just laying down and try to fill it with gas then be careful not to spill. Overall, we could not be more pleased with this product. Prior to this we were using a 10 year old weedeater that would randomly die in the middle of the process, so this is a fantastic upgrade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great trimmer! This lawn trimmer is easy to put together and works great! I used it as a week eater and an edger for my lawn. The strap makes it easy to control and the directions are simple to follow. Works well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from quality product from a quality brand This weed eater is easy to start. The shoulder strap holds it at the perfect level to make it easy to maneuver. The design is ergonomic adding to the ease of use. Another quality product from Cub Cadet. I will continue to purchase my yard equipment from Cub Cadet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality product that gets the job done This trimmer is excellent. It took about ten minutes of a learning curve to figure out the right motion, but once you get the hang of it ...it is super easy and fast. i was able to get a nice line on my yard and even do some precision trimming in the flower beds around some bushes. I liked that it didn't stop or get phased by small rocks or pieces of wood. It was extremely powerful and it was extremely easy to use. As a female, I always worry about the weight of the tool, but it wasn't too heavy and i was able to complete my entire yard with no difficulty. Highly recommend. It is a good price for the product. I would recommend this to avid and beginning gardeners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy Powerful Trimmer We live out in the country on an acre and a half . Needless to say, trimming and edging is a pain. This trimmer has made the job a lot easier. It is powerful, easy to start and operate. One of my favorite things about this trimmer is the length. Being over 6 ft. tall it saves constant bending over. Reaching under shrubs and my propane tank is much easier. I highly recommend this trimmer, especially for large yards and areas to trim like mine. It is powerful and sturdy built.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy using weed eater I got this item for my husband. He originally had used an electric weed eater, but he enjoyed using this gas weed eater. It came with concentrated gasoline and line. You can use regular gasoline with it as well. He liked the ease of use because it came with a strap to wear and it was lightweight. It cut through the weeds quickly and diminished his weed eating time by half.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! A lot of power! I chose this mainly to get the back part of our lot that I can't mow. Our other weed eater/edger didn't have enough power to cut through some of the native grasses that would grow past the back of our yard. This did not disappoint! The assembly was a piece of cake. It took maybe 15 minutes and that was with a 3-year old "helping" me. it took down everything I needed in the back and more. I also tried it in some of our mulch beds that had some small saplings coming through. It took care of those with ease as well! I was a little confused on how to get the line back out when it broke off all the way when I was along some rocks. After a couple of tries and no success I removed the line and put it back as if I was adding new line. Piece of cake at that point! It also solved the problem of the line breaking since it wound it back in how it was supposed to go. Couple of pointers on this one. 1. Make sure you are wearing glasses. This will kick up some serious dirt depending on where you are using it. 2. It also kicks back a lot of dirt at the shin level. I would wear pants or long socks if you are doing some heavy lifting with this thing. All in all, this has exceeded my expectations! I would definitely recommend this if you need something for more than your every day edging around the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Trimmer We needed a new trimmer and the Cub Cadet is Amazing , it was so simple to put together,it's sturdy and well made as a woman who helped in the yard I love that it's not super heavy and it's the easiest starting trimmer we have had in years,the bump head is great and it cuts through the heavy weed in our back field as easy as the light weeds in our yard, just please remember you need to let it warm up a few minutes before you get started. Cub Cadet is a quality brand we trust to last for years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! Super Powerful! This trimmer is sooo powerful that it amazed me. The assembly instruction were easy to follow and it was pretty quick to put it together. The engine is a 4 stroke so it eliminates the need to mix the oil and fuel!. In simple words this trimmer is great, starts quickly, and the most important is that it is very powerful and well built, I definitely recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight/durable/straight shaft weed eater The SS470 is a light weight, straight shaft weed eater. It offers different attachments, making this a viable option for multiple tasking. I like the 25 cc engine which makes it smooth and has enough power to edge around walkways. Being a 4 cycle engine, just adding gas is a plus, no need to mix oil. The bump head feeds well and is durable. I like that the straight shaft allows you to get into tight spaces and it is well balanced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality, high powered trimmer The trimmer was pacakaged very well and arrived in perfect shape. I had an issue with another trimmer where the shaft was bent in shipping, but Cub Cadet made sure to protect their product. There was a plastic stabilizer in the shaft to prevent that very issue and the other parts were protected just as well. It comes with a special fuel that does have to be used with this product. But it protects the internal parts and is good for long storage so you don’t have to worry about storing it with fuel in it for the winter. I started using this trimmer a week ago and have trimmed my whole property and still have plenty of fuel left, so it worth it in my eyes. This thing is powerful, starts easy and is fairly lightweight. It even comes with a carrying strap. The best value in my opinion is that this model accepts accessories that will make it a pole saw, a spreader, etc. I plan on buying the accessories to use this product to help clear my property. As it sits, it is cutting light brush and small privet hedges. With the attachments, I’ll be able to get the job done without having to buy another machine. 5 stars from me

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice! This product is very nice and has a very good quality. It’s very powerful and cuts great. The only downside would be it’s a bit heavy but the strap that comes with it helps a lot with that. I would definitely recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top of the line weedeater I love this weedeater it cuts great. It is a little heavy but considering that this is heavy duty and comes with a strap to help carry it, the weight doesn't bother me at all. It also rotates so you can use it as an edger which you don't find in many weedeaters. Overall great weedeater and I would recommend this to friends and family.
