Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Quality I bought this unit last fall. Used it for a few hours and put it away for the winter. Went to use it this spring and it would not start. Took it to warranty repair shop and after a month a a half I now have it back, but according to the repair person, this unit is a piece of junk. It uses too many plastic parts in the engine. The reason it would not start is that the fan "broke" inside the unit due to plastic fasteners. According to the repair person, it is only a matter of time before it breaks again, or another plastic part breaks. Who would use plastic parts in an engine?? Apparently Troy Bilt. If I could get my money back I would take my repair man's advice and get rid of the piece of junk and get a different brand. The only positive thing I can say is Troy Bilt did take care of the problem with its warranty.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbage Bought one last year thinking the most expensive one on Lowe's shelf would last me a long time. Lasted 3/4 the mowing season, pull start wouldn't start it anymore. I thought to myself..."Good way to convince the wife to get the easy start, ya know since it was expensive". Rolled over twice and only ran for 2 minutes total before dying out. Now it just spins in place not catching the starter after it got a little warm. Complete waste of time and money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I trust Jim Jones’ flavor aid over this Bought it last year in April. I used it no more than 10 times for 20 mins at most. I only use ethanol free gas. Pull cord feels horrible . I was using it the other day and shut off on me. Won’t start back up. Hopefully the service place can replace under warranty. Do yourself a favor and stay away. This is my first product from Troybilt and my last. Should of read some reviews before I purchased this poor quality trimmer. People prolly get annoyed by returning this for a warranty and give up. Junk

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed I have had this trimmer for a year and from the start, it has had issues such as acting fuel starved, misfiring and shutting off when the head is under any kind of load. I am very impressed however with my 2 cycle curved shaft Troy bilt trimmer and I highly recommend it over this for any kind of load bearing work like normal trimming or using attachments. This TB6044 should only be used for touch ups on very fine grass

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poorly designed Pull start us designed to fail. Quick start is a joke. Strips out after a few uses. Now it won't start at all.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poorly designed Poorly designed with use of plastic on pull starter guarantees this unit won't last long. I didn't even finish using the factory string before my pull starter disengaged from the motor. From what I've read this is a very common problem with this model. Plus the fitting for the JumpStart function doesn't fit the standard hex for a power screwdriver...what were they thinking! Since this was the Top of the Line trimmer offered by Lowe's for Troy-Bilt, I thought this unit would use more than just plastic for the starter puller. Any engineer would know this is the weak link for this type of machine. Another aspect was the fact it wouldn't idle right out of the box. I continually had to give it gas. You would think they would have these tuned before they left the factory. It also is not the easiest starting machine like my Honda power equipment.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible product I have bought 4 of these over the last 6-7 years and none of them work anymore. That's over a thousand dollars I have wasted in a product that should last multiple years. The only reason I kept buying these is because I spent the money to buy the attachments. I do not do any commercial lawn service stuff so there is no reason I should have to buy a brand new one every year and a half. I have pictures of my troybilt weed eater graveyard. I will not spend anymore money on their products.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from TB6044 Trimmer I have had this unit for less than a year. Strong motor and able to handle several different attachments with ease. Little concerned with Carb issues and white smoke on a 4 stroke motor through with less than one season under its belt. Was using the trimmer for about 45 minutes. Engine stalled and appeared to be flooded because gas was making it way into the air filter. Could not get it to start the rest of the day. Removed the air filter and let it air out over night in the garage. It started up the next day and ran but still not sure what happened to create the issue. It has had white smoke the last 3 times I have used it but compression seems strong.
