Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very reliable Had it for 3 years. I did leave gas in to long but it cleaned right up. It is a little heavy but ok.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Weedeater I have had several weedeaters and this one has been the best. Like the no mixing of gas and oil. I purchased the Electric Start with it so it always starts right away and feeds line promptly with a bump. It is easy to handle and gets under bushes and edges nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great weed wacker and edger. This is a great weed wacker. It came with an edger attachment which does a wonderful job.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing Product I bought this string trimmer in August 2018 to replace the TB425CS that I had for many happy years. The gas tank started leaking and a replacement is no longer available. To keep using the 3 attachments for this old string trimmer I stuck with Troy-Bilt. Bad choice. The TB685EC has been trouble from day one. First - the pull string does not engage properly most of the time. So starting the trimmer is next to impossible. I gave up trying to use it a few times and have not tried the electric start feature - just more stuff to take out. When I do get it started I change attachments without shutting it off for fear of not being able to start it again. Second - the hazard labels are in a bad place. I am tall. So I need the handle close to the engine. Well the labels are now gone because the handle rotates regardless of how much I tighten the screw. Third - the Aero-Flex line blades are no better than regular 0.95 string. I own several Troy-Bilt products including a 5500 watt generator, a 21 inch mulching lawn mower, and the Flex system. This TB685EC is the worst Troy-Bilt product I have ever owned.
