-Easy set up and assembly.
-Easy to handle.
-Instructions for use are clear.
-Starting it from cold is relatively easy.
-Changing the string is easy easy.
-The handle location is adjustable to accommodate your reach comfortable. (Although the wing nut that holds it doesn't hold all that time and it likes to swivel.)
-Stops running for no reason. This happens to me every time I use it. I'll be happily cutting along and suddenly it stops. No, it isn't out of gas, not getting stuck on anything, I'm not turning it upside down or anything out of the ordinary. It just stops.
-Re-starting it from warm is a pain in the *fill in the blank* if you can get it to restart at all. Every single time it has either stopped on it's own or I've stopped it on purpose, I have been unable to get it going again. I follow the instructions to the letter and it just won't go. One time it did, and shortly thereafter stopped itself again. I end up having to leave it be for 20 minutes to let it cool off so I can start it from cold. Not very convenient.
-Engine body gets hot and I've inadvertently leaned my arm on it a couple of times. Unpleasant.
-This is relatively minor but where the gas cap is located makes it a bit awkward to refill.
As far as performance, it's done well when it is running. I've cut through some easy weeds as well as some tall grass. Also, inadvertently got it near a little tree sapling about the size of a pencil and it cut that as well, so it does get through things. I just wish is stayed on for at least as long as it has gas and was easier to re-start. If anyone knows what I'm doing wrong I would love to know!
I was super excited when this trimmer arrived as I was finally to be done with my old corded weed eater. I opened the box, rad every instruction and proceeded to put it to use. There was one problem though.. It wouldn't start. WTF?!?! Turns out, it doesn't ship with the carb adjusted perfectly. I am not a real mechanical guy, so it took some research for me to figure this out. I ended up buying the carb adjustment tool mentioned above and finally got it working like a charm.
Once working, it's a super powerful edger perfect for any residential or light commercial use. I actually ordered it after talking to one of the local lawn guys. He had 3 of them.
I'm not the best at maintenance, so i've had to adjust the carb settings a few times to keep it going. I recommend you not let the gas/oil mixture sit in the tank for too long without use, but I am pretty sure that goes for any 2 cycle motor.
Poulan . . .NEVER AGAIN. However, Amazon . . . 5 Stars for their extremely courteous and professional assistance.
Really I can't say anything bad about the product. It starts with a few quick pulls makes noise and spins. That's what I was looking for but there's so many ways Poulan could have made this a great product and didn't. Let's start with the weight. A gas powered trimmer is by definition going to be used a lot and you're going to have to carry it so a shoulder strap would have been nice. I had one on an older trimmer and it really helped distribute the weight. Another problem is the length of the shaft. I'm 6' and have to bend over slightly to get the trimmer close to the ground. After about 20 min you can start to feel it. Would it have cost that much to add an additional 6 inches to the shaft? I can imagine there were engineers at Poulan asking for these things but some manager was too concerned about the bottom line to actually listen. Too bad. The motor deserves better. Overall it's just average.
