Rated 5 out of 5★ by David2U Powerful & Dependable I was concerned about some reviews I'd read about other brands of 4 cycle weed wackers.. but knew Walmart would allow me to return this one within 30 days if I wasn't satisfied.. so I took the chance. The thing that first interested me in the 4 cycle motor was my not having to mix oil & gas. Right out of the box and since then, it has started on the first or second pull when cold and on the 1st pull when re-starting it while warm. Easiest to start weed wacker I've owned in 30+ yrs. It will sit & idle smoothly without dying. You don't have to run it full throtle all the time.. you can go slow for lite grass or full out for heavy weeds.It has plenty of power for cutting thick 2 ft tall Johnson grass. The line bump feed works flawlessly. I added the 'J-handle' from my last weed wacker and a shoulder strap. With out them it is kind of heavy and will tire you quickly... as this is a substantial well built unit.This model has a long shaft that makes it easy to reach under bushes.. and trimming sidewalks / driveways is very easy. So far, I am very pleased with my purchase and highly recommend it. BE SURE TO USE A GOOD FULL SYNTHETIC 10W-30 MOTOR OIL! I use Castrol. And change it after the first 5 hours. I changed mine twice in that time period, because it is easy to do and the oil is cheap. Also, I suggest that you not use gas that has ethonol.. find a station that has plain unleaded gas. 06/29/2012
Rated 4 out of 5★ by 54017 replace a PPB200E Bought this to replace a poulan PPB200E 2cycle which quit working after three years had all attachments for that one and they would fit this one out of the box idle speed had to be adjusted also coupler for attachments also had to be adjusted so trimmer head would lock on after that adjustment all attachments fit it is heavy so I do recommend the J handle and shoulder strap that comes with the brush cutting attachment bought a two year extended warranty from walmart so a total of 4 years hopefully this will last longer than the two cycle which i do believe i scorched the cylinder in doing some tilling with 07/24/2012

Rated 5 out of 5★ by hevymetal fine machine I bought this to replace a 32cc Ryobi 2 stroke unit that has become very difficult to start.I used it around the yard a bit to check it out, seems to be a fine machine had no problems. Poured the oil in added the fuel, pressed the primer a couple times, choked it, it fired right up no problems. It seems not to have the power of a 2 stoke but it is a 4 stroke, it idles fine and throttles right up. I'm impressed that it doesn't torque over in your hands like a 2 stroke will and runs with very little vibration. The true test will be the chainsaw head to see what she's made of.over all very pleased. 06/16/2013
Rated 2 out of 5★ by Wshopper9999 Return it before your 30 days are up. The trimmer is easy to get ready for use out of the box. I liked the idea of not having to mix oil with the gas. The trimmer starts easy enough, but it is weak on power at times and sometimes dies when at full throttle. It's also very heavy and has poor weight distribution.I have used it twice; don't like it; tried to return it to Walmart, but my 30 day return period has expired.Previous reviews provide similar experiences. 06/06/2013
