Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the money Line won't feed correctly. Bogs down after only 2 uses. Heavy and is not balanced well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product is terrible I have the trimmer for two seasons now. After the first season I needed to have the carburetor replaced. After having done that. I have used it twice, and it will no longer start for me. I even stupidly invested in two attachments. If I was allowed to, I would have given it zero stars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value for the money I am into my third or fourth TB22 or TB22EC, plus a couple of identical brands. Overall, it is a reasonable value, about 1/3 the cost of some competition, making replacement cheaper than repair. The engines have all been consistent to start and operate, though minor design changes have improved longevity. The engines seem to last 2 to 2 1/2 years. The shaft has been shortened a couple of times in succeeding years, which makes it difficult to reach under shrubs and into corners and also makes it easier to hit the sod on the near side, leaving a bare spot that will not grow back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from the TB22EC is worthless I bought this last yr. - worked great back then - this yr. have spent several weeks trying to get it started with "no luck whatsoever" !!I stored it in the heated basement over winter so I know it didn't freeze - what a waste of good money - CAN i GET A REFUND ????????????

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The TB22 EC is worthless I wasted my money on purchasing this trimmer. It was a problem from the beginning with starting. I agree with all the other ratings that called it junk; I had the same problems they did no matter how many times I worked with it. Take it off the market!!! It was not built to last! The question is, can all of us get our money back or be given a better model (if there is one!)
