excellent value
While not the best trimmer on market, it is by far the best value out there. Got mine for under $90 and well worth every penny. Going into third season with my acre lot. It mows over anything short of saplings with ease, never even use full throttle. Use 91 octane gas and 50:1 oil mixture, you will not have any problems. Mine starts up 3rd pull everytime including choke. Light weight, powerfull, nicely balance product. Cant beat it for price, this is my second one owned for last 10 years.

Don't Waste Your Money
The worse piece of equipment I've ever purchased. Factory installed Guard came off during second use. Impossible to start, difficult to keep running, line feed constantly hangs up so it must be taken apart. Just a piece of junk that is a discrace even being sold.

DO NOT BUY

I know it is a cheaper alternative for a straight shaft, and do not buy this product. I bought this product a year ago and it is junk. It will not start...not kidding I spend 30 min every time trying to start it and yes I follow the directions. Buy a sharp pair of scissors you will be much happier. I would rate it lower but can't!

Thank goodness K-mart still offers this product.

This is the only trimmer I will use, I have rocky hills that are impossible to mow so they have to be done with trimmers. The Featherlite trimmer being lightweight is one reason I chose it, it takes 2.5 hours for one hill and the straps offered by other heavier trimmers don't work out when cutting wide swaths. The bump and go feature cuts down on restringing time which allows you to stay going longer. The Featherlite trimmers engine is powerful enough to cut through at least two months growth of tall grass and weeds on my hills. I have had many different kinds but this is the one I have chosen and the ones my family says is easiest for them, and now K-mart is the only place I can find them, so I ordered one and received it within days and the price was still about what I use to pay by going into other big box stores. Thanks K-mart for still making this available.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

best for inner city property

Maybe it would make a professional landscaper puke nevertheless I like it a lot----its light and doesn't give me a sore shoulder. Best if you have a home typical of the inner city with a small lawn (ours is the size of a cemetery plot) and cement driveway and sidewalk where weeds grow through the cracks using it not for lengthy periods this is perfect, I have had it for years using it in that capacity plus neighbors would ask me to do their weed killing with it at times so its handled well. A tip for beginners use good quality .080 line and prime bulb a few more times than what directions state

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Used 3 times and is now dead

I have used this trimmer 3 times and it will not start now. Changed the spark plug, changed the gas, checked the filter, but nothing. T about $30 per use, I could have hired it done cheaper. Bought a tiller about 10 years ago that did the same thing, and I said that I would never buy another weedeater product. I did and am sorry that I did. Had a Homelite trimmer before this that lasted 10 years and started first pull every time. I told my wife to never let me buy another weedeater product again. Cannot believe they even sell this.

Weedeater 25cc

I Purchased the Weedeater 25 cc Straight shaft and just used it, I love the way it handles very light with plenty of power. I have over an acre of yard front and back. I did read the reviews before I made the purchase and compared with other brands. The only negative was the spool did get tangled one time, it was easy to unwind and reload back on which sometimes happen, no big deal.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Light and Easy to use!

Featherlite is not just the brand name, it is it's namesake-light as a feather. I was able to trim my pathway grass border easily. The starter is quick and the spool unrolled without any problems. Am glad I got this at a steal price at the Best Outdoor retail store - Sears! I compared the price at ********** and ****** and Sears had the lowest!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Overall
The Weed Eater SST25 is a good choice for home use

After owning an Echo lawn trimmer for about twelve years which needed periodic carburetor maintenance at roughly five year intervals, at a cost of around $50.00, I decided when the next maintenance was needed I would instead purchase a new curved-shaft Weed Eater Featherlite for about the same $50.00 cost. During the past five to six years since the Weed Eater was purchased it has run without any significant problems (including no carburetor maintenance). My yard is almost a third of an acre with lots of trimming areas, and I use the trimmer every week during the lawn growing season. Despite the curved-shaft trimmer?s problem free performance I recently decided to upgrade to a straight-shaft trimmer for easier trimming under shrubs and other objects. Based on the good service I have had with this Weed Eater, I decided to buy another Weed Eater Featherlite. I checked out Model SST25 which comes with a manual choke and bump-feed trimmer head, and Model SST25CE which comes with an automatic choke and a fixed-line head. Both trimmers sell for about $90.00. After investigating some of the reviews which indicated some problems with the Model SST25CE?s automatic choke I decided to buy the Model SST25 which gave me choke control. I have later purchased the fixed-line head for about $15.00, which gives me the option for either type line feed, and now allows for thirty second hassle-free line changes. Based on my experience with my first use of the fixed-line head, one piece of line should last about two weeks. I experience less line wear when I trim at idle speed or just above which is adequate for cutting bluegrass. Since this machine has no clutch the head spins when the engine idles which provides for added rpm control when trimming at low speed. When moved to full throttle it will easily cut through any weeds in my yard. The first couple of times I used the new trimmer it started easily but wheezed and cut-out when the choke lever was moved to the run position. When I left it on the choke position it ran fine. When I used it last time it ran without problems on the run position with the same gas-oil mix (perhaps it needed a little breaking-in). The trimmer starts easy, is light, well balanced, runs smooth with minimal vibration, has plenty of power and so far has run relatively cool. Use of this machine on an average yard does not ?wear a person out?. Prior to purchase, I checked out some of the ?professional machines? which start out at about $220.00; most of these are somewhat heavier, and based on their reviews are not entirely problem free. They appear to be very well made, but based on cost comparisons, will they last 2 and times as long?

I would recommend this product to a friend.
