It comes with a shoulder strap and a handle bar. As long as you can hold the weight you should be fine.

Will this trimmer take a circle saw style blade?

Hello, hogman77. There is not an alternate cutting blade available for the TB27BC. We only recommend using the blade that comes with the brushcutter. Thank you for your question.

Answer

You should just buy new string right away. It doesn't come with much and it falls apart too easily. Any store that sells trimmers will have string. I use a .105 Husqvarna product, but they're all good and better than the included string.

Does the TB27BC have Jump Start capability

Answers

It can be started with the jump starter but you have to know how to. just pop the plastic circle off the top of the pull-starter housing to get access.

No Jump Start
I ordered this from Home Depot because of a great price and I have most of the attachments. Dose not have the power of the 4 stroke and no jump start. This will be my 3rd Troy Bilt. Last one lasted 13 plus years and was a 4 stroke with jump start are well worth the extra money.

This thing easily cut through the brush in my backyard that had grown up over the past year. It took out thick weeds and saplings in the fence row by the pasture with ease. I still haven't used the string head on it, but the blade asembly came off easier than i thought when I was testing the ease of removal.

Horrible product and order experience
HORRIBLE PRODUCT- purchased this item with an added on chain saw attachment. I then watched Home Depot sit on order of this item for several days before shipping. Got item in assembled and fueled with Pre-mix 40:1 ethanol free fuel bought last week. Primed the carb and began following start directions. Pulled about 20 times NO START, let set a few minutes and primed again choked and pulled another 20 times. This time let sit longer and without priming again pulled another 20 times. Walked away form unit to let shoulder stop hurting and went back 5 minutes or so. Started from beginning again on start instructions. Primed 10 times, choked and began to pull. On 3rd pull starter cord system locked up and completely failed. So now I have to go to Home Depot and return the unit. They won't be able to replace it as they don't show to have any of these locally. So if I want to try trim my trees or cut the brair on my fence line have to wait ANOTHER WEEK or SPEND MORE ON A BETTER MODEL. Absolutely horrible experience with an order process and with a product. And in the Question & Answer section a question of if Jump Start compatible was asked and Troy Built answered and said YES, that was either flat a lie or someone that doesn't know their own product because mine sure IS NOT compatible unless you change the entire starter pull housing.

I would recommend for a homeowner who does their yard twice a month and the yard is somewhat small. Quarter of an acre. The price is right for a pretty good machine, however if you plan on doing more than that with brush cutting and trimming, just pay the extra price and get a more light commercial version from shindaiwa or echo. The model has pretty good power but can be finicky to start as with all Troy-Bilt products.

needed new carb after 15 hours
I purchased this cutter in March 2020. Used about 15 hours total. In Sep, the engine would die immediately. I tried adjusting the carb screws and sprayed cleaner. That "revived" it for about 30 minutes before going back to immediately dying. Brought it to a TB service/dealer and was told I need a new carb. Not covered under warranty.

The unit came with a carburetor that could not be adjusted for idle or high speed (more useless regs from our politicians). The unit would not stay running if you took you finger off the trigger. If the motor had a decent adjustable carburetor it might be a decent machine.
