I was searching for a gas string trimmer. I use maybe twice per year. Reviews vary from terrible to great. Never seen one this low so I decided to take a chance. I was able to buy online with free shipping. I will post an update after trying it out.

I got it with the extended warranty which was only $6.97 Something to note is they will give 50% off (after filling and sending in a form) items that keep it running to include string and additives. Basically pays for itself right there.

Dont forget safety glasses. (regardless of type of trimmer)

The guard/shield on this one is a bit too narrow, so get a pair of safety glasses. It is very powerful, enough for lite use.

I've had two troy built models. First lasted 5-6 years. Second is a 4 stroke model that costs way more. First blew up, no compression if I remember right. I think it was my fault though, I think someone ran gas though it that wasn't premixed.

The second still runs, but I just had to replace the carburator ($12 eBay) and housing with the pull start mechanism ($25). Carb just needed cleaning, but for $12 just bolt on a new one.

For this price, I would buy one if in the market. Buy premixed 2 stroke gas. Expensive, but you WILL have fewer problems.

I have a 2 stroke Troy Built weed eater with a straight shaft that I bought about 6 years ago and it still runs great. For this price, I would definitely go for it if you have a need for one.
