Product Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very poor reliability I gave 3 of the 4 rating categories a "good" rating. It's a fairly powerful trimmer for its size. It was very easy to crank. Changing the attachments takes seconds. I really liked this trimmer, but it just died on me. The trimmer is 7 years old, but I only used it 4 to 5 times a year (I hate to trim grass); I'd estimate 30 hours of use at most. I changed the oil regularly, checked it regularly, and otherwise maintained the engine properly. The engine still looks practically brand new. However, the cylinder lost compression for some reason recently. It died in the middle of trimming the grass one day and I thought it had simply run out of gas. Upon trying to restart it with a fresh tank of gas, it wouldn't stay running. After checking a lot of things, I found the problem with the cylinder. It does not build up much compression at all. With the oil cover off and the crank assembly, cylinder, and piston visible, I can hear air escaping if I slowly pull on the starting cord. Completely unacceptable for an engine still so young and with little use.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from probably returning for credit I had a Ryoby for 9 years and it finaly gave out. Decided to buy a 4 cycle and got the troybuilt straight shaft. Not an easy starter,(10 pulls to prime) Idle for a minute at half choke. I can't say enough bad things about the spool. The line gets backed up inside and you almost have to break it apart when the line is behind the tabs. It gets backed up plenty with sign posts and cyclone fences. Spent more time fixing the spool head than actual trimming. One hour job became 2.5 hours. Just very poor engineering.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do Not Buy I purchased this trimmer at the end of the season last year and have had nothing but problems with it. I have never bought a Troy-Bilt product before and I will never buy a Troy-Bilt product again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Never again Will never buy Troy Built again. This unit stays broke more that it works. Have had the unit for three months. Hard to start, string jams or breaks. Difficult removing head to fix or replace the string. Fitting where gas line and carb return line go into tank leak. Returned the unit and replacement does the same thing. Poor design. It is a shame Troy Built has gone this far downhill. I have a 30 year old troy built tiller that is still going strong and built like a tank. What happened ??

Rated 1 out of 5 by from tb 575 string trimmer Trimmer appears well built at first glance, but after 2 uses the cutting head/bumper failed to feed string, jammed repeatedly, and is now locked in place (can't get it apart). Many users have reported this exact problem. I have worked on it more than I have used it. I am taking it back to the store. Could be a good machine if this problem is resolved.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Another Reason to Despise Trimmers I must admit that I don't have the best of luck with trimmers, but I was hoping that this trimmer would be my saving grace. The spool and line feed were a pain! I spent 30 minutes on the trimmer after purchase, before I needed to fix the line. This was understandable, but when I spent nearly 1 hour trying to get the line to stay I gave up. I read and reread the direction. I went to the video on how to properly intsall the speed spool 2. Everytime the same thing happened, the line continued to unravel and jam. I say no thank you to this item.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Runs great, but string head needs re-design Like more than a few folks, I came to this site looking for information on replacing / fixing the string head. The design on this REALLY needs some fixing... The rest of the unit seems to be working well (second season with it now), but I'm spending waaaay too much time fixing the string head. For every 15 minutes of trimming, I'm spending 15 minutes clearing the messed up string head. I'm here today because it seems that the plastic design has fused to the metal shaft and I can no longer get it to operate. I need a replacement pronto. If someone at Troy-Built is reading this, please contact me about the head, I'd love to talk with you more. For starters, replace the plastic with an aluminum casting. This would prevent the melting problem I just got. Second, provide a way to open the bobbin even with string still jamming the inside! I've had to pry the body apart when the string breaks off inside, this is because the two latches/catches on either side cannot be depressed with string inside. Lots of other improvement ideas, and perhaps you can send a redesigned head to current customers? I love the idea of a string head that you don't need to open. Push the string through and wind it on, that's really cool. It's just that the implementation of this isn't really working like it should. I really want to give this a great review, but until I can spend more time trimming than I fixing the string, you just get a "C-"

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Speed Spool is laughable I will say UNTIL I had to respool I absolutely was delighted with this weed knocker downer. It is that until that has really ticked me off. The most difficult trimmer I have ever encountered to respool. Nothing but trouble after that, constant jamming requiring removing the spool and rethreading. I am a fan of an aftermarket device where you insert a single string not spooled. This troy bilt is impossible to use my favorite head. It seems you cannot disassemble it to replace trimmer head. A huge huge disappointment. To the trash with this one.
