Rated 3 out of 5 by from TB685EC 4 Cycle Gas Trimmer + Attachments I just bought the TB685EC, 4 cycle string trimmer a week ago. It went together easily out of the box and started the first time I primed it and pulled it 3 times. I ran it 15 minutes trimming and then stopped it, put on the blower attachment and cleaned up after myself for about 10 minutes. I shut the trimmer off and did some other things and left the trimmer outside for a 1/2 an hour. I find some other areas to trim and went to start it, but it wouldn't start. I tried starting using the instructions to a tee, but couldn't get it to start. I attempted to get help via the Chat Support, but only received the same instructions as the trouble-shooting guide. I called the Help number and got someone on the first try, but was summarily hung up on and never could get back in to a live person. Consequently, I went out to try the trimmer again and it started. I think I just left it out in the sun and the gas vaporized in the primer bulb causing a vapor lock. I like the add on features of this unit and the fact that the attachments from my original Craftsman, 4 cycle trimmer also fit. So I now have a tiller, edger and extra trimmer in addition to the trimmer and blower that I picked up as a package at Lowes. We'll see how it lasts, but, despite my own lack of discretion on where I left the trimmer, it seems to be good at the onset. I am not encouraged by the inability to access help via the 800 number.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific trimmer ! I Purchased this a few weeks ago to get a heavier duty trimmer for my three-quarter acre property and I am highly pleased with this purchase -it starts well,it’s a four cycle so we don’t have to mix the gas and oil and does the job superbly!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, Solid Trimmer Good trimmer. Got thru lots of heavy brush. Not the strongest trimmer I've ever had, but good. Really like the 4 stroke engine. Runs smooth. Starts on first or second pull. Love the separate gas and oil.
