I bought this trimmer about 2 weeks ago (My other one got stolen off my patio) and man this thing can put out some power, I cut the edges of my back yard that had grass about 3ft tall (to my knee) and this thing just blasted through it. I did buy some Professional Trimmer String, which is very thick, and allows this trimmer to cut very thick brush. I don't understand why there are so many 1 star reviews, I'm assuming they don’t know how to work a gas trimmer (They got Electric Now-a-days if you can't handle gas#. When you first start it #Brand New#, OF COURSE it's going to run a little odd #It's never been started before#. All I did was after I put everything together I started it and let it sit in the yard running for about 10 minutes #To start breaking it in#, after that it runs like a CHAMP, and you don’t need to let it sit every time just that one time when you first start it out of the box. I took it to my dad’s last week and showed him and this thing ripped through weeds his Troy Built was struggling on. I went over there the other night and guess who went to Wal-Mart and got them one #My dad did# and is loving it. Great, Great Trimmer, Ignore the 1 star reviews; they either don't know how to use a 2 cycle trimmer or promoting some other brand. Mine usually starts in 3-5 pulls, First you prime it #4-8 pumps#, then you put in #1 #Full Choke#, While in full choke pull it 2-3 Times until it tries to start up, then put it in #2 and pull again, mine usually starts after about 2 pulls on #2. Also the trimmer that got stolen was the Curved Shaft Version of this Trimmer, I had it for 2 years #Before it got stolen) and it still ran like it did the first day I bought it, so this trimmer will stand the test of time.
