Rated 4 out of 5 by from Heavy duty! This is a heavy duty product! The Bush trimmer attachment works amazing and cuts through most any type of Bush or brush! The only down fall to this item is it gets very heavy on the hands after using it a few minutes even when wearing the shoulder strap. I have been using this for several months and have not had one problem out of it yet! It's a warrior beast!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bought last Summer - On my 2nd trimmer Bought this last Summer. Worked well for the first 2 trimmings. Then a harsh screeching noise came from motor. I was provided with a repalcement trimmer. Second unit now failing with same screeching noise. Most likely an oiling issue causing premature bearing failure - design flaw/manufactires defect?. Upper motor housing needs better heat sheilding, gets REALLY hot and burns forearm. This is used residentally to trim grass only. I would pass on this one folks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No power Bought this at my local Tractor Supply two weeks ago and was told it would handle good. Followed all instructions. Will run for 10-15 minutes, then dies. Wimpy power, chugs oil, poor quality. Only good thing is how you can add attachments.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product! This weed eater works great! It was easy to assemble and even came with oil and gas so I could get started right away. I also like the fact that you do not have to mix oil and gas for operation since it is a 4-stroke engine. It came with a brush trimmer which worked really well in my flower beds. I like the fact that they offer a number of attachments, really making this a versatile tool. The only drawback is the weight of the tool, which is pretty heavy when using it over time..but at least there is a shoulder strap to help with that. Overall a great product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Trimmer I've only had the chance to use it once so far but it has been great. It was easy enough to put together and get started. I really like that it came with the edging attachment which makes life a lot easier since I'm not an expert.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! Wow! I am super impressed with this weed trimmer. To start off with this trimmer came with everything needed such as the oil, gas, string, & a nice extra head to take care of the tough stuff in your yard. It didn’t take long to put it together and I did it without reading the directions just to see how easy it was. As for the 2nd head changing them out is very easy and doesn’t require any tools on hand to switch them. Now for performance. Getting it started was very easy. It cuts your weeds so good and easy. As for the 2nd heavy duty attachment it took down stuff that I thought I would end up having to get a little saw or something to cut down. I was super impressed. The 1st time using it after about 2 weeks of rain we got I used it nonstop for a little over an hour and it ran and did so good. I’ve used it numerous times since then and it’s still working great! Overall being someone who’s always working in my yard and want my yard looking nice I must say this is a trimmer to get the job done. It is a little on the heavy side, but it’s expected and I’m fine with that especially since it comes with a strap to take the load off your arms while using it. I have told everyone about this trimmer and highly recommend it. * The picture if right out of the box as you can see. Nice!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful and suprised I was pleasantly surprised on how powerful this unit is. I had a lot of brush in the back yard I needed to clean up and this did the job with ease. I like having one tool to do multiple task and this certainly does that.
