19.2v cordless trimmer
very disappointed in this trimmer. it would only trim for 3feet before you had to get more line ( it keep braking ) plus after only 1/2 hour of use the darn thing quit, battery out of power, this is after a 12 hour charge and the charger said it had a full charge. for me this item is not worth the money or time. would suggest not to buy. the DEALER GAVE MY MONEY BACK ,THIS WAS THE ONLY PLUS.

Better than expected

I have to say I was skepticle that a Battery power trimmer would do the job but it has exceded my expectations. Was able to trim and edge my entire lawn without loss of power or function. Kept right on cutting til I was done.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Trimmer

This trim is so much nicer than dragging a cord around all the time. I also have various tools that use this same battery, so that is really handy.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Out out the box ready to cut

Was thinking about getting a has powered one, man am I glad I decided to go cordless. Comes out of the box ready to go. No maintenance down the road. Loving the auto feed feature rather than bump it every time I need more line. Looking forward to all the trimming and edging I can do this season.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good concept, poor results

1. String protector covers the view of the cutting area making clean cuts difficult. 2. Line feed must be turned off & back on to feed out the cutting line. The feed out is so short that it must be repeated several times. 3. The trimmer is more of a toy than it is a tool. 4. I have returned the trimmer for credit.

Great for weeds; pretty good for edging.

In short: This line trimmer has been great for my 1/3 acre lot. I've used it for trimming along the fence and house and also for edging walkways and the driveway. Although, the guide for the edging isn't the best. Definitely worth getting for a smaller home with basic/moderate trimming needs. Background: This is the first wireless electric trimmer that I have used with a pivoting head. Usage: So far I have had this trimmer for about 9 months where the use has been rather constant. Being in Florida near the gulf, grass and weeds grow year round. From June-November mowing and trimming is about every 5 days. The rest of the year it's about every 10-14 days. Feel: I love how adjustable this thing is. I have long arms, so being able to change the height of the trimmer and the side handle is fantastic. Also, switching between weeding and edging is very rapid and easy to do. One button and a quick flick of the wrist and it's done. Changing the head angle is also simple?button location is good. Vibrations really aren't an issue, and I haven't had hand, arm, shoulder, or back ache/pain/soreness after use. Weed-Trimming: Very simple! The auto-feed works very well most of the time. There are times where the line does not go out full length?a few times each session?but there is a release on the spool to manually extend the line easily. Never had issues cutting through weeds or grass in the Tampa Bay area. Edging: Same as the weed-trimming, but with one flaw. I'm renting this house and the sidewalk and driveway are not the same height as the grass. Because of the this, the metal guide is useless. I have to eyeball it each time. Other than that it works great. Summary/TL;DR: This is a good trimmer if you want electric and wireless, especially if you have a small to moderate sized (less than 1/2 acre) yard. Easy to adjust, ergonomic, rather light, and easy to switch between regular trimming and edging. Easy to clean, easy to use, and a decent price if you already have C3 product (e.g. already have a battery).

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Didn't Last

Won't start after owning it for a little over a year. Used it about a dozen times on my 1/4 acre lot. Batteries are fine, still using them for my other C3 tools. Fairly lightweight trimmer that performed decently until it stopped working.

Good, long-lasting, powerful weed eater

I bought this for my dad, because I liked mine so much. I have had one just like this for the past 3 yrs. I have a fairly large yard, and it easily trims the entire perimeter and house in one charge. If you have a lot of edging to do, you might want to have another battery on hand. depending on what type of grass/weeds you have, it takes a lot of juice.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

TRIMMER CORDLESS

works great, battery operation much improved with lithium battery. try not to run continuous, use short bursts for a few mioments thereby prolongs life to complete tasks. easy too clean up and rotate for edge usage. Worth to get the added protection plan. recommend to use unit to ensure no defects during 90 days, definitely read the directions most beneficial. easy to assemble, use the pre cut line blade pkg or you can buy the line reel and thread on reel if desired.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Way better than it has any right to be!

In truth, I bought this one mainly for the pair of batteries it came with (a special release added a 2nd LiIon battery to the kit). But, when I tried the string trimmer out, I found that it really does a job far better than I'd have expected. A normal sized lawn can be quickly edged and preened with a single charge in a very short time with this unit. All the hassle of cords for electric units, or the pains of getting gas units to start and run smoothly are gone, meaning I'm about done with the chore before I used to be ready to start with earlier units I've owned. Plus, it's quiet, has no gas fumes, and surprisingly light and well balanced and adjustable. Doesn't even require 'bumping' to advance the string. Overall, a great unit, and a welcome addition to my C3 toolset.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Awesome!

This thing is freaking awesome, felt weird at the beginning but after a couple of minutes you'll get it. Mine came w/2 batteries. Out of the box charge will last like 15 mins, after fully charged... WOW! My previous trimmer (RIP Gasoline Weedwacker 358.795543) was very powerful, this little gnome is not as powerful, but is adequate and believe me, is quite powerful this little buddy, feather light and like my previous gas trimmer, just twist it and viol?, you have an edger, something Craftsman is missing from their newer gas line up. I'm very, very happy and satisfied.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Excellent Value in Rechargeable Trimmers

If you want to get rid of the cord and don't like using gasoline for your lawn trimmers, then get this light weight rechargeable trimmer. It's great for your back and does a nice job on the edges of your lawn

Not so great

The trimmer line is not long enough I must get very close to the grass to do any good. The battery life is great much better than my last cordless trimmer. I must say my old B&D trimmer was much easier to use and did a better job but the battery did not last.

The 2 years craftsman Full Warranty is useless. Check first

Stores and repairs centers refuse to take the faulty trimmer. It burned in the few second of use. Lot of smoke even with the new lithium-ion battery.

good value

Great that it comes with a battery. Other products that have the battery as an option make buying them senseless even if you already have tools using batteries. You just add another tool that takes away from ones you already have. Would not have bought it if it did not come with the battery as many other tools I pass up.

A little front end heavy

The gas weed eater I just got rid of was perfectly balanced which made it easy to trim the whole yard. The craftsman is a little front end heavy which makes the forearms do a good bit more work. However I need the exercise and love the cordless, electric weed eater. The battery lasts long enough to do at least a 1/4 acre lot with trees and flower beds. Overall I like it, and once my forearms get built up, I'll love it. : )
