I have used Cub products all my life. I have a 1964 Cub mower, a 2009 Cub mower, and 2 of these trimmers. Neither trimmer will run more that 10 minutes, neither will run wide open. I have had 3 trips to a shop with them under warranty, all 3 times I was told warranty does not cover carb issues. I have now spent as much on repairs as I did the trimmers. These are my last Cub trimmers, if not the last Cub product I EVER buy!
I would not waste my money on it. The motor is nice but from the it goes down hill. The trimmer head plugs up with grass and kills the motor. the fit and finish is not good . dealer had to unbox 3 to find one that was not broken. I hope cub cadet comes up with a solution to the problems
I bought this trimmer for ease of use. I'm finding the string to be extremely frustrating. When running it at more than 50% throttle the string flies out of the head. Without running at a high rate it's impossible to cut tall grass without the grass winding around the head/shaft.
