Description

Craftsman(R) 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(TM) wall storage system, as it can hang on a VersaTrack(TM) hook (storage system sold separately).
  • EDGING SUPPORT: Turn to edge with wire edge guide for support while edging
  • VERSATRACK COMPATIBLE: Use the integrated hook to hang this tool directly on the VERSATRACK Wall Organization System (sold separately)
  • NO BUMPING REQUIRED: Automatic feed spool advances the line with no bumping required
  • BROAD TRIMMING: 12-in cutting swath with 0.065-in line for quick work
  • BUILT IN CORD RETAINER to prevent unplugging

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 Electric String Trimmer - 3.5 A - 12-in is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 107.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Autofeed is a joke As many have stated, the auto feed does not advance line as needed. When the line had worn down to 2 inches from the housing and could not cut, I had no choice but to remove the spool to advance manually on this brand new trimmer, used 30 minutes, to cut minor grassy area. NO sap, line not stuck or fused in any way, just doesn't auto feed as it should. Wecaresupport just parroted back generic recommendations from the manual, and this solved nothing. I have asked for this complaint to be escalated to someone who is aware that his issue is real.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressed After way too much research on different brands and models I finally decided to let price dictate the purchase. This little trimmer fit the bill. It tackled some thick vines in my yard with no problem. I thought I'd have to use the hedge trimmers on them. Also many reviews of these Craftsman auto feed trimmers are complaints about them wasting string. I did not find this to be the case. If you're tall, might want to consider the extendable one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to assemble, small, compact. The price was appealing, Craftsmen has been around forever, a tried and trusted brand. It is light weight and it truly got the job done without a hitch. It’s the perfect tool for those small intricate areas that you don’t want bald spots in your grass. Plus I’m a 75 year old woman and it took me exactly 5 minutes to put it together. Snap two pieces together and one screw for the guard!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not durable, too short Mine just died, I've literally used it 4 times. If you have verrrrry small area that you need to trim it might be OK for a year at most. If you are taller than 5.6 this will hurt your back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No complaints This is the first corded weed eater that I’ve used. It’s also the 1st one I’ve bought in this decade. I’ve only used it once, so far, but it was fantastic. It was a great deal and it does what I need it to do. I used it around my foundation, fence, tree. It’s incredibly light weight.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Line feed failure, 7 months Line feed does not work. It did sporadically when first purchased Jun'21 but then stopped altogether. I have to remove the cap and manually feed line. The literature brags about "no tap" line feed; it is a bug, not a feature. I had big-boy gas trimmers at my horse ranchette and there is no substitute for tap advance. This machine is disappointing. I've had Craftsman tools and equipment for more than 60 years... my first chisel was a "Dunlap" and it is still in service. My 1970s radial arm saw is still sawing straight and true (though in the hands of a son-in-law now) and a likewise veteran table saw remains my go to cutter. Both real Craftsman. The current editions of Craftsman border on a slander to the once good name.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works great and nice and light. So far it is great. Being an elderly woman it was perfect as its lightweight and did a great job easy to use easy to assemble. I would recommend it to anyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for a smaller garden or occaisional use Great little weed wacker....not the most powerful, but adiquate for a smaller garden. Initially the pre-wound line did not feed so well . but after a few tries it settled down.
