Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy The pull start sucks and will stop working after 2 or 3 starts. The electric start add on is nice but at the asking price not worth it...until you realize you can't use your trimmer without it. Also it leaks oil constantly out the reserve. You better store it somewhere where the oil won't cause a problem.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as good as it should be The 4 stroke engine attracted me to this product. The engine us heavier than I expected and us very difficult to start with the pull. I purchased the drill attachment starter and it works but the amount of time seems too long. I would never get it started with the pull. The line feed bump head us average or worse than most. The line constantly binds against itself on the spool and won't feed when bumped. The alternate head with heavier blades is better but if they break it will he expensive. Thus seems like they tried to make a good product but did not do enough to make it a high quality product. If I started again I would stick with the 2 stroke model.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from TB2044 XP String Trimmer Bought this trimmer 10-2017. Started using it spring of 2018. Had to buy an electric starter to get it started after running for several minutes. Works great until the string breaks off inside the head. You have to take the head off and rewind the sting that is left when it breaks. So carry a screwdriver while using it. String feeds itself sometimes, so I end up using about 5 feet of string every time I trim the yard, normal home with average size yard on 1/4 acre. really regretting buying this. My old Weed-Eater out performs this 10 times over. Been using string trimmers for over 40 years.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Over all good I bought this trimmer at Lowes and was able to use it a few times before the trimmer string head flew apart. The string guides were not recovered and I was not able to use that feature any longer. I had to buy a more heavy duty cutter head and use the trimmer. Lowes no longer carries troy bilt products; therefore, I am not able to buy replacement parts. I cannot find a place other than online that carries troy bilt. Other than the string trimmer head this is a great piece of equipment, easy start and runs great

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worked fine for 2 years then stopped. I really like the TB2044, goes through some pretty tough weed and grass around the farm. However, when I went to use it this spring/summer, it ran very rough and would stop completely after 10 to 15 seconds. I took it to a repair facility, and they said it needed a new carb. Waited for 2 weeks and was informed that it was sometimes hard to get the parts needed for repair. I only had about 10 to 15 hours on the engine. The repair was going to cost as much as a new machine. Also was informed by 2 repair facilities that because it was a "fuel" problem it wouldn't be covered by warranty. I am going to try and repair it myself. Still like the way it starts/works, etc. but it's a boat anchor at the moment.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Real Junk! Do not buy My wife purchased a TB2044xp believing she was buying me a quality piece of yard equipment. Less than two years later it doesn't start and is extremely unreliable. I've purchase much cheaper string trimmers which were far more reliable. I would strongly recommend not buying this junk. The first year it was pretty good but on the second year it started acting up and now doesn't start at all. The sad part is this is used for home use which means it has a pretty easy life but clearly this was poor ly designed. Will not buy another Troy Bilt lawn care equipment.
