After my 22inch Yard-Man string trimmer died I was pleased to see Troy-Bilt offered a similar product. I read the previous review that stated problems with the broken oil tube. I have owned a Troy-Bilt rooter tiller for years and thought this was simply a unusual happening, after all Troy-Bilt makes the best. Little did I know the old Troy-Bilt went out of business and was aquired by MTD products. Well ten days later I received my trimmer and the oil tube was broken. With fire season on the way I taped the tube in place and used it to clear the brush. I called MTD products and between being keep on hold on the phone and getting the run around I gave up trying to get the replacement part under warranty. I ordered a new tube on line for $15 including shipping. This string trimmer is the old Yard-Man trimmer with a different engine. Last but not least the product worked well it just wasn't of old Troy-Bilt quality.

This seems to be a very good trimmer. We have had a DR trimmer in the past. It doesn't have as many features as the DR but for the money is a very good buy.

I was under the impression that this company produced quality tools and perhaps were better than Craftsman, so I ordered the 22 inch trimmer mower. The trimmer was delivered, and upon opening the box I noticed that the oil intake funnel was broken off at the top and loose from the connection to the engine. Because the box was not damaged I assumed it was a packing problem and a lack of quality control. The return of the item went smmothly. Amazon.com was very understanding and helpful. I requested a replacement. Upon receiving the replacement and looking and the terrible condition of the box, I immediately knew that something was going to be wrong with the replacement too. I opened the box and to my surprise, this trimmer mower also had the broken oil intake funnel. I immediately called UPS and requested that the mower be returned as not accepted due to damage.

Fool me once but not twice. It is obvious that quality control is not part of this company (Troy-Built). I will never ever buy a product from this company! They don't even deserve 1/2 a star.

Very powerfull machine, just a step below a brush hog. My only criticism is that the gas tank isn't big enough. Otherwise, a very good machine.

This is a great piece of equipment. I do a lot of yard work and this thing will cut down almost anything. I even cut the cable line on the pole. We live in the country and we use to clear weeds, small trees and anything the mower can't get. It's light weight and is easier to use than a weed eater on the shoulder and arm.

I ordered this mower 2 months ago, and it finally arrived yesterday. The oil intake funnel was broken off at the top, and suspended into the engine. The metal oil dip stick was bent at the tip at an angle of about 45 degrees because of that. There was no oil bottle shipped with the mower, unlike advertized. Troy Bilt (MTD) warranty support declined any assistance with the missing/broken parts, and referred me to Briggs&Stratton's warranty information inside the engine booklet. The only phone number in that booklet refers to a pre-recorded message, there is no way to get a customer representative on the phone. If you plan to order this mower, be prepared to take a gamble on broken/missing parts.
