Description

CRAFTSMAN 3.5 Amp corded string trimmer features a high performance motor as well as a 12-in cutting swath with 0.065-in line, allowing the user to tackle tough overgrowth. The automatic line feed system means no bumping is required to get full cutting width. The turn to edge with wire guide provides support while edging, while built-in cord retainer clips perfectly on the outlet to prevent unplugging. This string trimmer is compatible with VERSATRACK wall storage system, as it can hang on a VERSATRACK hook (storage system sold separately).
  • Wide cutting: 12-inch cutting strip with 0.065-inch line for fast work
  • Cord retainer to prevent accidental disconnection
  • Turn to edge with wire edge guide for support while edging
  • Use the integrated hook to hang this tool directly on the VERSATRACK Wall Organization System (sold separately)
  • Automatic feed spool advances the line with no bumping required

Ecological Attributes

Using an electric tool generates significantly fewer greenhouse gases (GHGs) and air pollutants than a conventional model using gasoline. Also, the use of a plug instead of a battery reduces the impacts associated with its production and end-of-life.

CRAFTSMAN 3.5-A Electric String Trimmer with Self-Adjusting Spool and 12-in Cutting Radius is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 44.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from String feed doesn’t work correctly Initially it worked quite well. I used it without any issues for several weeks. About half way through the first spool, the line stopped feeding. I replaced it with the correct parts and it still doesn’t work. I can probably use it for 10 feet before I have to take off the cap and pull the string out myself. Extremely frustrating and makes the job much longer. Not a good product..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to rewind spool I had been looking for a single line feeding trimmer as the dual line feeds are much harder to rewind by hand. This one fit the bill and does everything I need it to do as I just use it around my own property. It is helpful that for edging you can remove the guard at the front of the spool.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Autofeed is problematic I would give this a much higher rating if the autofeed on the string worked. I'm off to pick up the prewound spool and see if that fixes it. I've been using the correct size string, but the string I picked up is not a Craftsman brand, so I'm still troubleshooting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well, used 1 summer Just in case the reviews get mixed up, this is for the CRAFTSMAN 3.5 Amp 12-in Corded Electric String Trimmer. Mine has worked well since october 2021. The string wears our more quickly than I expected from the reviews, and faster than with my old manual-feed B&D trimmer. The auto string feed looks flimsy. Time will tell how long this will last. I like that this trimmer is corded so I do not have to worry about batteries. I have used generic string refills with no (or little) problem. Much cheaper this way and I hate the thought of throwing out spool after spool once they are empty. It is possible that the generic string wears out more quickly than it should, but the original one wore out pretty quickly too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible, string feed stop working, no parts avail Terrible, string feed stop working, no parts available. I had this about a year and it stopped working. I only have a small front yard! WEAK PRODUCT

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Auto feed doesn’t work I’m so disappointed in Craftsman. Just purchased a few months ago and the auto line feed doesn’t work.
Date published: 2022-09-17
Rated 1 out of 5 by from How to reload string? There are no directions on how to reload the string what kind of pictures did you put on there they make no sense the directions make no sense of how to renew the string could you please put a video out of how to reload the string back on the spool.
Date published: 2022-09-12
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Line will not feed! Line feed never worked right out of the box. Lost the receipt to return it so to use I have to revive the spool and manually refeed the line every 10-15 feet. Fun tool to use. .0001 Stars!
