Rated 5 out of 5 by from Weedeater ( Cub cadet) Very happy with my purchase. The product works great!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from ABSOLUTE WORST TRIMMER EVER I've bought and exchanged, warranty exchanged, 3 of these pieces of .... Only for every last one of them stop working after the first use. Oil POURS out of vent in the intake when it does run, completely drenching the gas tank, your shirt, your pants, etc with oil. To top it off, TSC doesn't transfer warranties when you get one exchanged under the warranty, so you're left to either not have one or buy another. Completely pointless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It was a return that was in need of a pull cord. Works great and is easy to start.great deal on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Oil Mixing! Great Wacker! It's a little heavier than the 2-cycle it's replacing, performs just as well, and... no oil mixing! Totally worth it! I haven't tried the bush Wacker. The blade doesn't seem very sharp. TSC was very helpful with the purchase. They held the last one on sale for me until I got there, 2 days.
