Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality I purchased this unit just under two years ago. I've used it about 4 times lightly. While running it this weekend, it became sluggish and then the engine stopped. It could not be restarted. After following all the instructions in the manual, I ended up replacing the carburetor. No luck. Upon further inspection, the piston seal ring came apart and blew out into the muffler. Completely dissatisfied with the quality of this yard machine. I'm writing a poor review because Troy-bilt doesn't have an intuitive way of emailing customer support for help. Evidently, you can only call or chat online while they are open for business. Sorry my schedule doesn't coincide with yours. I work to.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Trouble The trimmer was a little over 1 year old when, for no known reason, the engine locked up! All my equipment is always kept in tip-top shape so the reason is a mystery. I've never had a trimmer do this. One other problem with it, it was nearly impossible to keep the carb in tune. The idle adjustment screw was constantly having to be adjusted. The ONE positive? The ability to use different attachments. I did not replace the trimmer with another TB product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tough trimmer I bought mine 3 yrs. ago. It's been a real work horse. Most of the time all I've done is keep it full of fuel and trimmer line. Mine has the quick link system on it. I really like that flexibility it, gives me to change attachments to do different things with one machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool to do the work I have had this TB2044 XP trimmer for about five years. I have several attachments for it. I have used it weekly to keep up the church property. It has always worked well for me. I have enjoyed using it and would recommend it to any one that needed to keep their yard well kept. It will work great with line or bush blades.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great attachment feathers I bought this a few months ago and it is a lot easier to get my trimming done.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not to bad My only complaint is that it's hard to start sometimes, and the carb needs cleaned way more often that I feel it should. Frustrating to have to clean carbs all the time to get it to run like it did when I first bought it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far, so good. Get back to me in 3 years... Got tired of buying cheap, disposable gas trimmers from walmart (murray trimmers are junk- go through 1 per season), so decided to do a little research and wound up buying this trimmer. 3 year warranty is a plus, and so far it seems like a much better product all around. Time will tell...
