Nice trimmer that saves my back!!!
I received this trimmer and it was well packed. It took about 5 minutes to unpack and set up. Added the oil that was included and filled the gas tank. I primed the bulb until I could feel it filling with gas and pulled the rope. Started on the second pull. I tested the line rotation and went to work. Man, this was so much easier than trying to do the large area I have to trim. I only had to put on new line one time and that was only because the trimmer caught a piece of wire I didn't see. I did notice that the engine slowed and the belt slipped a little when I got to really thick grass, but if I slowed down a little and let the ends of the trimmer line do the cutting, it was much better. After the first time starting it, I only had to pull one time and it would start right up. The only problem I had with this trimmer is what a few other reviewers noted and that was that this trimmer didn't like to run over uneven surfaces very well. I would have expected it to do better with the large wheels, but I just had to manhandle it a little and I could get the job done. Overall, for the work it saved me it was a great purchase. I would highly recommend this trimmer.

Initially worked OK. Now the wire that is supposed to hold the line in place has come up from the round plate. It should have been welded at the center two points. Not doing this is a obvious design flaw. I will attempt to fix the problem. Since the line retainer has pulled up the line simply slides underneath. Overall this unit is light duty so don't go after big weeds. Good luck.

Great string Mower
plenty of power, easy to start. rows easy over terrain. East to switch out trimmer heads. My husband uses this to mow our ditch. works great.
Only thing that would make it better is to have your neighbor mow for you!

ITS A GOOD PRODUCT BUT THERE'S ONE OBSERVATION TO DO
HELLO WE BOUGHT THIS PRODUCT LAST WEEK, ITS A GOOD PRODUCT BUT THERE'S ONE OBSERVATION TO DO. THE BLACK PART IN FRONT OF THE WHEELS (LIKE A COVERING BLACK PLASTIC THAT GOES IN FRONT OF THE MACHINE) BREAKS EASILY. WE JUST WORK WITH THE MOWER FOR ABOUT TWO HOURS AND THIS PART BROKE. NOW WE NEED THE REPLACEMENT OF THIS PART, WERE CAN I FIND OR BUY THIS PIECE? AND THERES ANOTHER QUESTION: DOES THE CUTTING STRINGS BREAK TOO FAST..... IS THAT NORMAL?

I bought this locally and within a month, about 4 uses, the plastic shroud broke. I can't find parts for it, so I decided I'd make a modification to the plastic shroud and use it anyway, but the head wouldn't turn when I got it out this spring. I wouldn't buy this again.

Great machine saves time and back ache
I picked up one of these for clearing in some lower areas around the house and it works out great. Much better than carrying my hand held around and it take about 1/2 the amount of time. The amount of power this machine has is great. The deck and trimmer head is made much stronger than the swisher machine that I also looked at.
