Do Not Buy
I ordered this unit and it IS easily set up. It starts on the first pull.

However, while cutting down a hill of about 25 degrees, it dumped oil in the carbureator and shut down with a giant plume of blue smoke. I let it sit and after a while it restarted okay.

But, after cutting only about 100 ft of 18" tall grass, I was surprised to see that one of the wheels cracked from the outside all the way to the hub.

Back to Lowe's it went for a speedy refund. Goodbye Swisher. Hello... more

Follow Up To Belt Problems
After reporting my belt problem with the Swisher string trimmer on Friday, I was contacted by Becky in the customer service department at Swisher on Monday. After talking about what the problem appeared to be, she checked internally and discovered that the machine was sent out with a faulty idler pulley that was causing the problems. She contacted me within the hour and told me they would be sending out new replacement parts under warranty.

Much to my surprise, the replacement parts arrived... more

"At String Trimmers Direct I received a great price, fast service and they even offered to help me resolve the belt problems if I could not get it accomplished by going directly to the manufacturer. Now that is great customer service even after the sale. String Trimmers Direct is a good place to do business."

Belt Problems
I have attempted to use the trimmer twice now and in both cases the drive belt has been shredded.

Regardless of the tension, I can't keep the belt from dropping under the backside idler pulley which eats up the back side of the drive belt within a very short period of time. This is my third string trimmer machine and I have never had belt problems before this make. Poor idler design.. And the machine is heavy to operate also.

I would return this unit for a refund if that was possible!
Pros: Features, Fast
Cons: Heavy, Unreliable, Durability, Expensive

Keeping Line On During Cutting Of Heavy Weeds
I was given this machine after my brother passed. I have 65 acres close to Windsor Mo. with a lot of heavy weeds and have cleared about 5 acres with a Craftsman walk behind. When I inherited this machine, I thought that being a more powerful machine it would help me get the job done. Since the first time I tried it I have been very disappointed. I have tried all kinds of line and cannot keep it on the spool.
