Great Craftsman Trimmer
Bought this trimmer because of the 4-cycle and aluminum boom. Plus I've always had Craftsman product. This thing really cuts well. It also has a handle that moves in a bunch of positions. Craftsman is keeping up its brand with this one.

I am truly disappointed in this item. The gas trimmer its self is probably a good unit. Had I been informed as to the decitated trim line I would not have purchased the unit. If I had not used the unit or disposed of the boxes I would have returned the unit. I can not recommend this unit do to the large waste of cord wasted each use.

Works well

The trimmer works well. Took it out of the box, assembled it (took about 15 minutes) and was ready to work. Heavy, could use a shoulder strap.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

good power but heavy

great power, heavy, they reduced the size of the gas tank to help with the weight, just makes gasing up every 20 minutes. Gas spout leaks when unit is tip backwards. So during changing or adjusting line, overhead pruning/sawing etc.

heavy duty whacker

Very powerful and uses .155 line that you have to change out. thought it would be a pain not using a bump head but you can cut and edge a whole yard with one piece of string it's so thick and tough. You can also buy Troy Bilt line that is orange online that works better than the sears line but is more expensive...it lasts longer so it depends on what your time is worth. Only complaint is since so powerful it is also really heavy so I don't recommend for a lightweight.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Craftsman 32cc 4 Cycle Trimmer

This is the first 4 cycle trimmer I have owned and I am very impressed. The motor is very smooth running and most vibration free and that allows me extended use without the numbing in my hands. The power and torque is great for the tiller and edger attachment as well. Overall recommended for ease of starting, use and operation.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

A good machine

Pros: Very easy to start, powerful, oil level easy to check thanks to the window, no need to have to wind cutting line onto a spool (uses short pieces that are easily replaced onto the head). Cons: Power unit a bit heavy but expected because of engine size, handle won't stay put when using the edger attatchment.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Won't recommend this item to others

It don't have any power, this tool came out the box bad, toke it back to sears and purchased an ECHO Trimmer instead, paid a little more for the product, but in the end I got a trimmer I can depend on with lots of power to get the job done quickly.

Heavy Duty is correct!

Bought this unit a couple weeks ago, used it twice now on my front and back yard lawns (very large yard by the way). This thing starts up first pull and has plenty of power. I was a little surprised at how quick the string is used up and how much of it is wasted, but that's not a big deal really. So far no problems and it sems to be a fine trimmer. I also bought the chainsaw attachment but haven't tried that yet.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Easy start and Lots of Power

Pros: Easy to start. Lots of power. Easy to clean and maintain Air Filter because filter cover is secured by thumb screw and no tools necessary. Oil changes should be a breeze when its time. Motor noise is a lot less compared to a two stroke - don't know if this is because of a better muffler but its easier on my ears and for my neighbors' ears. 8 in 1 multi-tool attachment will also save you from having to buy separate dedicated yards tools such as hedger or tree pruner. The single string line is tough and easily last the weekend yard work. No oil and gas mixing. Cleaner burning than a two stroke. And yes, I do love green panties. Cons: Haven't found one yet. Giving this review a four star but only because I've used the trimmer only once so far. Will do another review in a few weeks or months.

Craftsman Weedwacker 32cc

I just replaced my last Craftsman Weedeater with the 4 Cycle 32CC Weedwacker. I have to say this is the biggest piece of **** I have ever bought. Craftsman should be a shame to put their name on this piece of junk. I am going to take my old one to be rebuilt. I'll probably put this 250.00 piece of **** at the crub and feel sorry for whomever picks it up.

32cc 4-Cycle Straight Shaft Weedwacker

This will be number 6 that I've tried. The first one the pull recoil stop working 2 hours into weed eating. The next 3 the shaft that is warranted for 10 years stopped spinning within two to three hours of running. I was thinking a different manf. date on the fifth one would be better but it turned out that the lower spinning head just wobbled loose and couldn't be tighten any so here is no. six. Going to do some more weed wacking this afternoon. Lets see what happens in a few hours.

Issues with the shaft

Right out of the box, put it together and upon 1st start the shaft made grinding noises, took it back apart and noticed that the grease was all dried out. It ran great and had lots of power, but it was the second craftsman weedwacker that had issues with the shaft.

Very disappointed

Bought this trimmer after my 12 year old trimmer died. The first time I used this trimmer after only 30 minutes of operation the pull cord would not engage. Had to take it back to Sears for a replacement. I will give this replacement a try but if it breaks I will ask for my money back.
