Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by yamafx4dude Weak and Uncomfortable
I had a 31cc straight shaft trimmer. It broke. Right away I noticed the lack of power with this 25cc unit. You have to really open the throttle on this all the way otherwise it bogs down. The curved shaft makes it more difficult to navigate and its a bit uncomfortable getting a good hold. For over $70 after taxes I would have rather went with something else. It literally feels like a toy. But it does crank up and run. Make sure you use a card with extended warranty protection.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Peanutty a good purchase
Easy to assemble. Easy to fill fuel tank. Easy to pull the rope.Starts easy. It has to run a few minutes before you start trimming giving it throttle too soon, cuts the engine off. It has a clutch that stops the string from spinning, that has to be revved up high, in order trim.I think it uses more fuel because of that. My old trimmer didn't have the clutch and seemed to cut without giving the trimmer any throttle,which made it quieter. I like the kill switch. It is light and easy to handle.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lawnboy Well satisfied customer
After a few weeks of fairly heavy use, I have nothing but good to say about this product. As with most current small engines, the carburetor requires special tool to fine tune, which is not a big problem.it is light weight, simple to use, and the string advance works well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jp103 Great for the price
Product assembled easily. Started right up following the priming instructions. It runs solidly for long periods doing big yards. Plenty of power for heavy stuff. Quality seems good. Despite the low price, it doesn't compromise anything. It does everything well that most homeowners would need.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jeremy Throttle problems
Gas powered weed trimmers are a dime a dozen - unfortunately this trimmer is worth about a dime. I had troubles with the motor running continuously first summer I had it and by the second summer the throttle would kill the motor routinely. I couldn't even throttle to get the wire up to speed to cut the grass. Carbureter problems I think. Tried to clean the carbureter off YouTube videos, didn't help.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Illinois do not purchase this product
Good price but it does not work. Mine does not start/run reliably and the advance feed for the line does not work without turning it upside down and doing it by hand. Stay away from this one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Smit1ar So far VERY good!
I have to admit, at first I was very skeptical because of the low price but after reading the reviews, I decided to take a chance. It arrived very quickly and I immediately put it to use. After fueling it, based on manufacturer recommendations, it fired right up. I used it non-stop for about 20-25 minutes with only one issue. The one thing I 'may' have issue with is the string ran out just as I was finishing. I previously had an echo and I only had to reload string about 1X per summer. I haven't taken time to look at it yet but I'm hoping it will hold more than was originally loaded by the manufacturer
