  • Construction: Craftsman 25-cc 2-cycle gas trimmer has a straight shaft. The frame of the trimmer is lightweight and compact. The frame is designed in such a way that it suits best to people who have shorter height. The 52- inch shaft of the trimmer has curved end and it does not wear out your arms. Though it reduces the distance between you and trimmer yet it increases the risk of accidently hitting your shoes or pant legs.

Its 16-inch cutting path is average for its compact size. The strings of the weed whacker can be easily replaced, once wear down.
