Works well, but cheap construction and some design flaws
on June 28, 2006
I should have bought a gas hedge trimmer years ago! A great tool. So far no problems with this unit, except for some design problems. The most annoying is the choke lever, which sticks out and always gets pulled into the choke position by the hedges or trees and kills the engine. Also, the construction is almost all plastic, and I'm very apprehensive about longevity. I saw the the Troy-Bilt after buying the Weed Eater, and it looks like a much beefier unit, bigger blade, with a lot of metal and better thought-out controls, and for only about $20 more.
