I purchase this product about 3 years ago and it is still running. It is lightweight and works very well. When this one breaks I will buy it again.

This is a good buy. The only assembly needed is to attach the guard with the included bolt and wingnut, and to adjust the handle to your preference. The engine starts easily, and stays running consistently. The bump-feed spool works well. The light weight of the trimmer makes maneuvering easy and not fatiguing. I would recommend a larger trimmer for a property with a lot of brush, but this works fine for cleaning up the grass around flower beds, fences, and the foundation of a house. The engine is not especially noisy for power equpiment, but you should consider using hearing protection.

My Featherlite Xtreme Gas Trimmer is just what I need to give my 1.5 acre yard a quick trim after mowing. It is very light and compact, but gets trimming jobs done effectively--even the tall grass and weeds. It is easy to start and simple to operate. I am very satisfied with this tool.

Pros: Inexpensive... but you get what you pay for. When this worked, it did a good job trimming. It was easy to start, and never stalled. The lighweight nature of the product made it easy to manuever and use. The string feed mechanism was reliable and easy to rewind until it melted off the shaft. The engine seemed solide and reliable. I don't know how the engine held together running at the RPMs that this thing ran but it worked great until the rest fell apart. The engine was also clean burning and didn't produce lots of smoke and fumes. Cons: The thing ran at FULL RPM from the very time you started it. There was essentially no throttle control and it just ran as hard as possible from the time it was started to the time it was turned off. This made it so loud that I had to wear ear plugs or my ears would be ringing. I recently left it running after use to run the gas out prior to storage. I came back to check on it a half hour later and the deflector shield and cutting head had gotten so hot that they melted and came off the unit. The end of the shaft was simply grinding against the driveway and sparking as there was no more deflector shield to elevate that part. Who this is for: If you want to pick up a gas trimmer for $60 or less and don't care too much about the quality, this is the one for you. I wouldn't suggest running it more than 10-15 minutes due to the overheating issue. The little motor is amazing in that it doesn't fly apart running at these high speeds. It ran reliably at insane RPMs even after the rest of the unit melted and came undone. This would probably be a good component to cannibalize and use in something else like a model airplane. The rest of the unit seems disposable and might be good for one season if you are lucky. One of my neighbors goes through one each season but I decided to upgrade and go with a Stihl. Suggestion: The addition of a throttle control would be a great idea and shouldn't add much to the cost or complexity of the unit. It would make the unit more pleasant to use and likely last much longer.
