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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by disapointed Poor quality product. Poor workmanship!
I took it out of the box and did the required assembly. Filed the gas tank and started the unit. The gas tank leaked! Shut the unit off to look for leak. Location was not visible when not running. Went to start the unit a second time and the starter rope would not recoil and fell apart! The plastic housing was broken in two places.

Machine is a little heavy, and harness isn't that great, so would recommend to get a better harness. Overall, the machine is great. Would recommend to purchase this machine, price wise is unbeatable compared to a stihl.

I bought this unit after burning up sevral other standard weed whackers and was lent a name brand unit like this one and other then it being heavier keeping in mind it has a larger engine it works just aswell is able to cut down weeds much thicker then they claim. It does come with a strap that does not hold its adjustment very well as have only used it four times i cannt speak on the longevity of it

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jon This is a BEAST.
After reading many other reviews I bit the bullet and bought this becuase I kill small cc's I need Power. The only bad I see is YES it is heavier..DUH. and I had to use a different strap. Only once so far was it hard to start but once going doesn't stop. I call it my sleeping giant. I had 7 foot tall overgrown grass on long fences... Gone with JUST the STRING. I have not even tried the blade yet. Overall very pleased. Make sure you use the right gas oil mix, get a 1 gallon can not a 1.25 because i goofed on that and burned up my last cheaper weedeater.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Willy 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!!

This product is not worth your money. It is VERY difficult to start. Currently, my device will not start at all. Choke is on backwards. Instructions are minimal and poorly written.
