Poulan Pro PP133
I have had this unit for 2 1/2 years and it is on its third carb and has had the pull start rebuild twice. I have a Poulan chainsaw that is 15 years old and never failed to start. Very disappointed in this string trimmer. Also, not having a bump line feed is a drag. I have about 2 acres to trim and I have to stop about 4-6 times to insert new string......

I'm definitely happy with this product. Assembly was simple, it's very well-built and has plenty of power. Starting is a bit tricky, but that's to be expected with small cc 2-strokes. Aside from that, this is a fantastic trimmer.

This product stopped working using it about 6 times
The first Poulan trimmer I purchased didn't work right out of the box. I exchange it and the second trimmer only worked about 6 times and quit.

Not a reliable product1
I purchased the SM30SB at Sam's in June of 2011. Do not like the spring assisted starting. I had it in the first time for a gas problem. Was told the tank had to be returned to the manfmacture for repair and return so I was without the unit for three weeks during the summer. This year when I started to use it I had the same problem. Took it to another auth. repair shop and was advised it was the same gas line problem and Poulan would not cover under warranty so it cost me $37. It ran for 20 mins after I got it home and now am told there is a carb problem and I will be without the unit for another few weeks. Was also told that the ethonol in gas was what was eating up the fuel lines and I should use fuel with no ethonol
This fact is not in the manual and when I called the Poulan customer service I was basically told "tough luck" Not at all satisified with the product or Poulan standing behind their warranty. BAD NEWS!

Poor Weed Guard Design
The weed guard on the PP133 is poor, to say the least. There is next to no protection to the operator of "weed splatter" from the trimmer head. Not onlly are my pants and shirt covered with weeds, but also my face and glasses. Need to wear a full face shiield to keep from getting hit with weeds. I have to carry a change of clothes after each us. Would like to know if there is a better covering shield available for this model. Not only would I not recommend this product, but I'm ready to get rid of my after using twice.

Great trimmer for the money!
This trimmer has plenty of power to tackle any task! With the multiple attachments, it replaces many yard products!
