Loved The First One, Second One Is Trash
The first one I bought blasted for years. It was easy to start and was a workhorse. I used the weed eater, limb trimmer, edger and blower. I simply wore it out.

Since I had the attachments and I was pleased with first one I bought a replacement. What a mistake. The new motor is difficult to start. It was adjusted by an authorized mechanic. I had to pay for the repair. It is still hard to start. Now the motor pours out oil (literally). No more Troy Bilt for me.

Bad Choice
The 4 stroke engine did not run good from the beginning. It had to be ran fast to keep it running. It had attatchment options. It realy ran like junk and now it wont start.

A Troy-bilt Fans Nightmare
I needed a new gas trimmer, but this model is Hell on Earth to get to the line spool, I need two screwdrivers to pry open the tabs to get to the spool when the line runs out of winds back inside. I have come to the point that I just hate to use this trimmer!!!!!
Cons: Difficult To Use, Extremely Difficult To Remove Spool To Replace Line, Very Difficult To Remove Spool To Reload Line

Soo Hard To Hold Up!
Needed an easy to start weeder. This thing is so hard to hold that I hate it. It is very top heavy and not balanced at all. Can't figure out anyway to put a strap on it to help hold it. I have to push front down to make it cut. With these two adverse things, it is really hard to use.
Pros: Price
Cons: Heavy, Difficult To Use
