Customer Questions & Answers

if this is a gas trimmer why does it use 15 amps and up to 50 ft cord????????????????????

Asked by: smlqtyprt
It doesn't. You must have a crossed link or a mis-applied description of another trimmer.

How much does it weigh ?

I looked in description
Asked by: SusieQ
Too much. The large engine makes it very heavy. The wide handle bars make it awkward to use. I could not get the harness to adjust to make the head a neutral or zero weight.

The local repair shop couldn't even get it started. I contacted the company and they were GREAT. They sent me a new one. I used that trimmer for the remainder of the season and the beginning of this season. After about a total of 50 hours of operation (both seasons) the trimmer stalled and now will not start. I'm now searching for a replacement. CON Also, this trimmer is very heavy. The neck sling is required if you want to do much work with it. My fuel tank leaks. The large "Handle bars" make it a bit difficult to use. PRO It has plenty of power. The detachable implements are easy to get on and off.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pile of junk This is a heavy machine. The shoulder strap is uncomfortable at best. The handle bars are bent the wrong way and can't be flipped. It's very hard to start. The same fuel from the same can runs great in the Hitachi I purchased to replace this. The choke is labeled incorrectly. After an hour of running the engine would load up and not get any RPMs then it would die. Could not get it started again for at least a day. The catch that holds the two shaft halves together broke off after two hours of use. The first time I went to use it this year it sounded like dry metal on metal when pulling the cord. Toast after a total of about three hours run time! What a waste of time an money. I will never buy any Blue Max product again. Oh and I wrote this after cooling off for about three months.

I adjusted the handle for my arm length. I bought this for the brush cutter attachment, I already have a weed eater that I like. The manual to put this together was better than the instructions on how to start that are on a label on the shaft. The instructions read like you hold both buttons with one hand and pull the cord with the other. Awkward. I did get it started but freaked out because the brush cutter blade shot to life along with the engine. Later someone pointed out that I could squeeze the buttons and press in the LOCK button and then pull the cord. Doing this starts the engine without starting the blade. It performed as promised and like so many reviewers before me I'll say it was heavy and shook like a beast. But the price was right and the darn thing does cut small brush. I think I'll keep it but I'd like to find a blade with more teeth. I think the blade that comes with it just wacks the brush to pieces.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This item needs a design change! The trimmer seemed well built, however, 5 minutes cutting grass and needed to advance the line bumped the head on the ground and the housing flew apart. One of the plastic keepers that hold the outer head in place broke. After looking at the keepers it was clear to me was very poor design. Took it in to Home Depot and they replaced the head with a different brand. Marked the price down to 1 cent and sent me on my way. One of the reasons I buy all my needed supplies at your stores. The customer when right, is king. If nothing else people should know that your associates are will trained to help the customers. My hat is off to the gentleman who helped me!!

I took a gamble on this unit after reading the many negative reviews. First of all, one gets a lot for this price point. The units large engine displacement is a must for cutting brush. The build quality is very solid for a Chinese product. There are videos on "You tube" about this unit and after viewing them I was sold. I am happy with this purchase and expect good service. Remember that the key to a two cycle engine lasting is the proper ratio of gas and oil and preventing using ethanol gasoline. If ethanol is used make sure to use an additive sold at The Home Depot. This prevents gumming and the spark arrester screen from clogging up causing the unit to stall and hard to start. I cannot stress this enough. This is the number one killer of two cycle engines of any brand.

Assembly instructions are limited, short if you are over 6Ft., strap is bad(bought a better one on line), etc. etc. So why did I buy? Combo price was great and I did not want to spend that much on a higher end manuf. I will buy a better cutting head as someone recommended. It is powerful and I have several acres of multifora rose to clear, cutting trails for deer and turkey hunting. All where I cannot get a tractor with a brush bull in. Maybe after that we will see how the Blue Max did.

We have used this item three times and like it when it words right...It can be difficult to start and is quite heavy to handle, but hope to get used to its quirks and hope to get it started faster as I am so tired by the time I get it from pulling on the "easy coil starter".....So, I am trying to like this weed eater and am hoping it starts to get easier to work with....like the harness strap and handle bars, and the price was very good for the size and performance of the product ! We really needed this to mow a large lawn and it is doing the job so far !
