Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by vanhalo Cub Cadet ST100 $329
I was considering the DR Trimmer @ $399 but after chatting with their support i still couldn't decide if their entry level 675 model would be enough for my yard. They couldn't convince me. After selling some items on Criagslist I had $230 cash in my pocket and the banks were already closed so I decided to take a chance on the similarly spec'd Cub Cadet. Worst case i could take it back and they could put the money on my card. After spending an hour with it i feel confident that the Cub Cadet was the right choice for a 2 year neglected back yard. It is really the best option for an overgrown yard. My weed wacker wouldnt make a dent in it. This thing goes through the weeds and growth like butter.

Set up was beyond easy, adjust the handle, set the pull cord, add oil, add gas. Didn't even need to adjust trimmer height. 1st pull started right up. I own a straight shaft, steel blade trimmer I usually use on this (not my yard), but I get covered in mud and grass, exhausted and poison ivy. The Cub Cadet just blasted through this stuff. The big wheels helped move over the mud dobbers easier. Pay attention to the incline directions cause it will tip. Only had to replace lines twice, and that was user error cause I tried trimming rocks, not recommended. Glad I made the purchase!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by woodsy It's a beast! (with the right string)
We bought this trimmer to clear grasses and brush in the rough and wooded terrain around our house. We were initially disappointed because, while it cleared the grasses easily, the string (which came with the product) wrapped around and broke on the berry stalks and small saplings that were everywhere. We had to snip these all by hand, which made the trimmer almost worthless to us. Then my husband found a heavy duty string at our local rental shop and decided to try it with our trimmer. It was amazing! The machine was able to rip through rough brush with alder saplings without breaking once. I am a 67 year old woman, and i was able to maneuver the trimmer over rotting logs, and other small obstacles. I was able to clear vegetation to bare dirt level which will help tremendously with fire mitigation. This trimmer has now become our most important landscaping tool. The string we used is Diamond Edge brand 0.155 inch diameter.

Bought this a couple of days ago and its awesome! ! Let the machine do the work and take your time it cut way more than you would think. The only reason we didn't give it 5 stars is because its still new and we're giving it time to be fair.

All in all very happy with unit. Only con I have is the way to change oil. I added a drain hose to make changing oil easier and a lot cleaner. Love how it starts with one pull every time.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jeffreylang2 Too bad it didn't Work!
Assembled easily. It started right up the first time. However, after a quick test, I took the string trimmer to another location. It wouldn't start again. It was like this for a few hours--wouldn't start. Then it started again. Same thing. When I moved it around to work with it, it wouldn't start a 2nd time. I just about destroyed my shoulder trying to get it to start again. I waited a few days. I tried again--same thing--my friend tried--same thing. Only worked for a few seconds. For those few seconds that it was running, it worked well. Too bad it simply wouldn't work past that. I returned it, and even the tool rental service man at Home Depot discreetly told me he would never buy this product!

I have owned the Cub Cadet Walk Behind String Trimmer for about a month. I starts with one pull of the starter rope - every time. I cuts woody weeds (wild berry bushes, tough Russian Olive Tree sprouts, etc.), and, it does so, surprisingly fast. Although the fuel tank is small (0.5-gallons capacity), it runs for several hours without a refill.
Now! If I can only find somewhere to buy replacement string, I would be 100 percent satisfied.

Clean up of our 1 acre campsite with 3 foot high overgrowth was done in a couple of hours with ease. My wife has a bad wrist due to an army injury and could start this with no problem. Highly recommended if you have a lot of trimming to do
