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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Works great for awhile I have tried to use several of these with my TroyBuilt tiller attachment. They work great for a few weeks. Greatest problem is the pull start mechanism fails quickly. They sent me an electric starter, but it would only start the trimmer a couple of times and then the charge was not strong enough to start the trimmer. I have also had the motor freeze up, I believe it was actually the start mechanism which locked up the motor. Several were replaced through Lowes' 30 day return policy. One was replaced through the warranty. Great three year warranty; but, I could not rely on it working and got tired of having to return them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Troubles After many years of great TB products this is not one. The first one broke within two weeks and was able to return to the store. The second one broke at the 45 day mark and am in the process of taking in for service. Both had the same problem, when you pull to start thereis no resistance on the pull so no start. I have been aTB user for 30 years, the items I have purchased in the last 7 years have not held up. I have purchased my last TB products.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unreliable I originally purchased my first TB6044 XP about 3 years ago. Since then I've had to return the product 3 times while under warranty. Each time the retailer replaced the trimmer with a new TB6044 XP. Twice there were issues with the pull cord starter failing. One return was due to the attachment connector failing. One of the main reasons I invested in a TB6044 XP was because of the accessory attacments that could be purchased. I bought the leaf blower, brush cutter, cultivator and pole saw attachments. The attachments have all worked quite well but unfortunately I cannot say the same for the TB6044 XP Trimmer.
