I recently started living on my own and have had to accumulate new toys to accommodate said living. So one of these new toys was a Craftsman 15" 5.5 amp trimmer. Ok, being female I do not have the best forearm strength. You wouldn't think that a 6 lb tool seems heavy but after working with it for some time it starts to weigh you down. When I was finished trimming my arms hurt! So that being said the functionality of the trimmer was average. It is a bit cumbersome and getting used to the 'tail' of the cord and trying very hard not to cut it (which I accidentally did, TWICE :/)It cuts well and with the automatic line feeder I do not have to worry about bumping it on the ground to re-feed it at all. I am not much of a fan of the trigger start, you have to push a button over and pull the trigger at the same time and that can get a bit tricky....but otherwise said it works and gets the job done and I am happy for that.
