Alas, this non CARB-compliant (illegal in CA) trimmer is fantastic. Very powerful, lightweight enough so you can go for about 2 tanks of gas (maybe about 90 minutes) before it starts to feel heavy, its exhaust doesn't smell any better or worse than any other gas-powered lawn equipment I've used, and with the ability for attachments - this is a definite winner.
While it doesn't say anywhere (even on the box), this comes with a spool of trimmer line and 3.2 ounces of 2-cycle oil (enough to treat 1 gallon of gasoline.) I've found that Lowes sells another "fits all makes/models" trimmer line that's .095 inch that isn't circular (it's kind of hex-shaped - the idea is more cutting surface area, I presume) that works significantly better than the smooth circle stuff...and it's cheap.
My only complaint is that, standing about 6-foot, the 17-inch shaft on this trimmer seems to be about 2-4 inches short of being completely comfortable for me in a natural standing/upright position.Read more ›
Now the bad.
A. The starter pull, the gas cap and the choke control are all bunched together. This presents two immediate problems--
1. The gas cap is very hard to grip to remove...too cramped to get a solid grip. I use a large pair of Channel-Lock pliers to lossen it. If not on tight mine would tend to leak a bit of gas.
2. When pulling the starter my hand often hit the choke lever which reset the choke to the open setting. So it would have to be reset it again so I could get it started.
B. The line head can be a challenge to load...not as well designed as others I have used. But once you get used to it not a serious problem, just annoying.
C. The spark-arrestor cannot be self-serviced by the owner...has to go to a Poulan Service center or other lawn equipment repair service dealer.
D. The worst problem...the cheap, poor design of the detachable trimmer shaft. As others have noted it will begin to wobble and vibrate as it gets more use. I disassembled mine and found the problem. The end of the shaft tube has a cap. The rotating shaft simply passes thru a hole in the cap (like a hole in a washer). There is nothing to mitigate the wear as the shaft turns in that hole...metal on metal contact...no bearings or lubrication so the shaft literally grinds the hole bigger as it turns and that leads to the wobble and vibration noted by others.Read more ›
