Rated 3 out of 5 by from TB685 Straight shaft string I bought this so that I could trim around where I can't mow, and it ran for one season and then it won't run and the cost to have a small engine look at it is very costly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not As Good As The Old Ones!!! Bought this a year ago after having 2 of them in the past that were very good. However, they sure cheapened this one up. After starting approx. 6 times, the pull mechanism broke. It was 2 weeks old and being I didn't purchase an extended warranty, the dealer would not fix it or take it back. I used parts from an old machine and made them work. Now the engine has lost compression and is no good. Definitly would not recommend this to any one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It’s a pleasure To write a review explaining why it’s a mistake to buy this product. If you hate weedeating but love working on cheaply produced pieces of garbage you will love this worthless tool. I may have used it six times so far and trust me, 90% of that time has been spent un binding the string, now it’s lost one of the metal grommets and the head is worn out to the point where it won’t close properly. Useless waste of money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid machine I bought this to replace one I had purchased from another store (glad I bought an extended warranty). Power is ok. Starts well. I recommend using only non ethanol fuel. Fuel with ethanol will ruin a motor. Also, buy the extended warranty. This is the 5th or 6th I've had over many years. I've had fuel and oil leaks over the years and often I'd just break it down and fix it myself. I've got an electric jump start but have not needed it on this one yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 Stars for my most annoying yard machine There is actually a "happy ending" to this story. When it runs, it's actually a nice piece of equipment, when it runs. When I bought this trimmer a couple of years ago, it did not start easy. Very unpredictable, Pulling hard, no success, sometimes with almost no pull it just started. I should have called tech support at that time, my fault. After using it a few times (always with fresh fuel) it finally wouldn't start again. The recoil mechanism doesn't feel adequate, I would call it a Mickey Mouse device. Sometimes engages after half of the cord is already out of the coil. (0 Stars) Called tech support. Tech was on the phone and listened while I tried to start the engine. Nothing helped. Thought the recoil mechanism was broken and would not turn over the engine. Sorry warranty has expired, doesn't matter that I used it less than five times. (0 stars) Read other reviews, the starting problem is not uncommon, so is the experience with tech support As a last ditch effort, I decided to buy an electric starter to see if I could get it going that way. At the store I found the unit, but it was rather pricey. At this moment it was like should I throw good money after bad money? Fortunately, there was also an attachment (Part # 49MASCBP953) available to be used with a power drill which was more like in my price range. Bought it and attached it to my 1600RPM power drill. Primed the fuel as per instructions and held the throttle wide open. Started the drill and the engine would turn over but not start .... Primed again and still no success. And here it gets weird. Once I slowly started to release the throttle the engine would start up without hesitation. When it's warm, it will start without applying the throttle at all. It just will not start with throttle fully open. Do yourself a favor and, if you still decide to buy this product, buy the Electric start bit as well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Never again This is the second one I’ve purchased in one year. First one blew up, this one lasted 10 weeks. Won’t ever buy Troy Built again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not well made Just recently bought to replace a previous, same model trimmer. First one lasted only about 3 years with light residential use. The fan cracked near the pull starter and the pull starter wouldn't engage. Not very well made. I only bought the same model number because I have parts from the old one that I may need for this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Able to use multi tool attachments I purchased this a month ago. It was hard to prime at first start after many tries it started. Now starts every time on first pull after priming correctly.
