Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great at the start Works great when it will stay running. After 9 months of use the trimmer wont stay running. Bogs down and dies when trying to cut the smallest stuff. Tryed using it yesterday and the pull start wont engage to start the motor.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Avoid at all cost!!!!! I have owned it for a year and it’s still the same problem as the day I bought it. Tried to return to Lowe’s with in the first month. And was told it had to go to the repair shop. All I can say is I have a small yard and end up restring it and adding gas. If the tank no completely full and you move it sideways it will die. It will be in the trash Saturday.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from cheaply built bought this from lowes in february 2018, 5 months ago and now it won't start. pull cable is slipping. bogs down when trying to cut small amount of weeds. the head heats up bad enough that the trimming line melts and won't retract out when bumping. will not be purchasing anymore troy bilt if this is how their equipment is built

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I bought this about 3-4 years ago. It was not my favorite from the start. It seems very hard to start, along with next to impossible to fix the string. I went to use me weed wacker today, it’s melted! The casing on the out side is melted. I called customer service was told we only have a 2 year limited warranty. You can clearly see that it’s not a user issue. All around the case is melted. I was told take it to an authorized dealer to see how much it is to fix or if it’s cheaper for me to by a new one. Very disappointed in what I thought was a decent company, thought their products would last more tgan a few years

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Weedeater I purchased this model from Lowe's in 2016, and have not been disappointed with it thus far. I had a issue with it not wanting to run or stay running some times, which I stumbled onto something that has so far remedied it. I have been purchasing canned fuel from Lowe's for four cycle motors, and it runs MUCH smoother and without those issues. At one point, it seemed when it would have the issue running, like as if I had hit something and caused it to jump and cut off. Thank the Lord I found they make and sell fuel to make the motors run smoother and better. I used FRESH gasoline with Stabil in it, which helped, but didn't do as the canned fuel did. With the Electric Start port and attachment options, I feel this is a solid product. SO far I have the blower attachment which also does very well, and is SURPRISINGLY pretty powerful.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hard to start I bought this product a couple months ago i dint end up using it til last month. Right out the box i knew something was wrong. There was barely any compression. I ended up using it a couple times. It would die randomly and now there is even less compression when i pull the string and i cant take it back to the store because i had it for more than 30 days
