Works as well as my old gas n oil weed trimmer
Craftsman model#CR2050 with the Lithium-ion Battery. Its much more lighter than the gas powered ones, its shaft and handle is adjustable along with an adjustable pivoting head. I charged up the battery and it worked great. Its speed and power is the same as my old gas weed trimmer without the noise and smoke. I love the fact that its ready to work instantly. The only negative is the automatic line feed that needlessly puts out additional line when not needed and then it gets cut off and wasted. A quick fix is to pop off the red plastic line cap and simply place a ?? thick foam circle on top of the spool and place the red cap back on. This foam will prevent the line from automatic feeding. You can use a kitchen sponge or whatever you got lying around. Also I did not install the black plastic line guard which has the line cutter blade because its not needed and only adds weight to the tool. Note: The line feed on my previous gas trimmers never worked either.Still gets 5 STARS!

Great and Convenient Trimmer....

I, like most, debated a gas vs. battery operated lawn trimmer. This trimmer was a great item and was an excellent addition to my C3 Collection. This is a perfect item for light duty trimming and works best with a spare battery to keep you going. I often do a large section of yard, trim & edge, and then put the battery back on the charger. I found that I have some of the same issues as others such as have to stop the trimmer and press the button on the bottom to advance string (so the auto "bump" trim line is more manual. I really use this item regularly and with the trade off between gas and battery, this has been a regular item for use. Further, Craftsman's light duty C3 Air Blower is a great item to use for clean up when edging around walkways and driveways. I really like the automatic adjustments for height, the handle, and the rotating cutting head to convert to edger from weed wacker. I find it much easier using this trimmer in dry grass and read some reviews about this and to go slow and steady and remember that it is a light duty trimmer. I found that they can overheat and it is important to keep the small ventilation wholes free of debris on the head unit to have cooling of the motor. So, this is one of my main lawn care go-to items, but I have the C3 Hedge Trimmer and C3 Air Blower and for the price / quality ratio, I have been super happy with this purchase and am looking to get more C3 items as Craftsman adds these to their line-up. A final note, I see the reviews from others about the quality aspect of these tools and Craftsman tools in general. I think they are a huge value when you can find them on sale and understand that they are clean up and light duty. I originally wrestled with this purchase over the Echo Gas Line Trimmer and for the cost, No Gas/Oil that this was the Best Bang for the Buck and has been a great item. Go Strong with C3 Lawn and Garden Products...Absolutely a happy customer.

Good unit for small jobs.

I picked up this unit to trim around the fence of my 1/3 acre lot in the city. It works very well for this task, it has the power to trim small saplings and is very lightweight. The only issue I have is the fact that I am 6'5" tall, and this unit was obviously designed for someone between 5' and 6' in height. But other than that works great.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Cordless Trimmer

My husband needed a new trimmer that would hold a good charge. The old one had batteries that kept going off. This one works great and he seems to love it. The ease of handing, and the twists and turns work well. He even played with it by attempting to cut down plain grass in a spot or two that he missed on the law. I also have no problem holding it or using this item. It is fairly light weight.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Really surprised me for being a battery operated. A little less power that the gas, or electric ones, but it does state for 'light' work. It did what I wanted it to and am very pleased with it.

19.2 volt trimmer

I love this 19.2V Cordless C3 String Trimmer. It is so easy to use. If I want to do a quick trim somewhere, I can just grab this trimmer and go. No cords to find and untangle, or plugins to reach. Also I have many other batteries to use with this trimmer.

19.2v Cordless C3 String Trimmer is the best.

I had a gas trimmer, but living in Chicago it did not get used during the winter and the carb would just foul up or the lines would dry out. I decided to go electric, so I do not have to worry about lines or cars, but then the cord was a big pain, especially when it came time to put it away. This battery operated trimmer was the perfect fit for me. I already own other Craftsman battery operated tools, so my confidence level was already there and it did not fail me. I would have gave it 5 stars, but I am still trying to figure out this auto line feed with no bump. I am so use to bumping to feed a line and not having to do that will be a bit of a learning curve.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Average rating & useable

I like Craftsman tools for the obvious reasons. The weed-eater is a little counter-intuitive. It doesn't edge very well without contorting my arms to make it happen. The adjustable arm is smart, but doesn't seem to adjust to my style. I had an old-style Toro that was cheaper and easier to use, but it broke after 5 years and there's not a replacement for that. I do like that the Craftsman is battery-powered and as far as a weed-eater, it's good.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

No powerline or gas is nice...

I gave it a 4 star because it lacked the power I am use to in my gas trimmer. If I weed at least once a week weed it should be fine though. The taller weeds showed to be a little much for it and ate up the C3 battery pretty fast...

I would recommend this product to a friend.

OK AT BEST

Sounds powerful but it is not. Plus with only one strain trying to cut it doesn't cut well. take twice as long to do the job. I have used the trimmer 3 times now and I don't use the metal guard because it won't cut the grass if I use it.
