I bought this trimmer because my friend was telling us all about how great trimmers with Sears Hassle Free Line Feed were. The Hassle free line feed is bacsically pre cut line instead of the standard spools that you used to use. I hated the spools, stopping the trimmer to pull out more line, and then right as you are about to finish your lawn you run out of line.
This lawn edger works well for small lawns. The hassle free line feed makes me long for a lawn edger that has a line. The hassle free lines seem to be a hassle. They run out at all the wrong times and you literally have to carry the little packet along with you as you egde.
I have always been so happy with Craftsman products, but this seems a little flimsier then the rest of my craftsman tools.
I bought this about two years ago, and honestly think it is time to replace it. We now have a bigger yard and I need to get something with a little more lasting power!
