Rated 4 out of 5 by from Started right up! Purchased last night, brought it home, put fuel in it, started on the third pull. Used it four more times today and no problems! Haven’t used the brush cutter yet but if it works this great I’m not going to have any problems. So glad I decided to try it for myself and not trust the reviews.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't Like to Start I can't for the life of me get this thing to start reliably. My dad bought it so I can weedeat his property and now I just bring my own trimmer. I've been doing landscaping for eleven summers in a row and never have had to argue with a piece of equipment as much as I do with this thing. I've used Echos with the muffler falling off and thousands of hours on them that make this thing look like a Chinese kid's toy. Don't even get me started on the string system on it, just hope you like carrying a pair of pliers around with you to swap them out. I don't know why people associate Cub Cadet with quality, I have never seen a piece of their kit live up to even basic expectations.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor product, no manufacturer support. I bought a BC280 String Trimmer from Tractor Supply 4 months ago. Went out of town a little over a month ago and did not use the trimmer for 2 weeks. Went to start it and it would not start. I use ethanol free fuel and did the exact starting procedure provided on the trimmer and it would flood . After sitting for a day, it will start. Has been that way ever since. I contacted the local dealer and said carburetor and fuel problems are not covered under warranty! Seriously?!?! I had a TroyBilt trimmer for 10 years that ran ethanol fuel and never had carburetor problems until I just had to replace it with this trimmer. Then they said would I like to price a carburetor for it?!?!?!?! Not even. Very poor product and very poor customer service. No gasoline power equipment will run without the carburetor. Will not purchase from Cub Cadet again .

Will the brush cutter blade cut down bamboo trees

Asked by: tay0000
Hello Tay0000, The BC280 was intended for brush, shrubs and saplings. Bamboo may be too hard depending on it's maturity. I would not recommend this for cutting down bamboo trees. Thanks!
