 Troy-Bilt TB575 EC Straight Shaft Gas String Trimmer

I was caught in a bind. With my other weed eater at the shop for the last 3 weeks things were looking mighty shaggy here. So I called the shop and they told me they are waiting on back ordered parts and couldn't give me a date when they might have it ready. Well that got me off but also gave me an excuse to go to my favorite places, Lowes. I look at the different brands and models. I just can't believe the costs for a good weed trimmer. This Troy Bilt was on sale from $194.00 to $179.00 and I took the floor model because it was their last one.

The engine is a 29cc 4-Cycle motor which is cleaner and produces less noise. You don't need to mix gas and oil anymore, so that is one less mess. The gas tank on this machine is 12 ounces which running at full throttle will give you about 45 minutes of straight trimming.Please use eye protection and ear muffs. The choke on this motor is 3 levels always start it at the lowest one to provide with a quick and easy start. The Spring Assist starting helps with quicker starts and  provides with just a smooth and steady pull!

Optional 
For extra money you can buy a electric press starter for this model. It will start the trimmer with a push of a button! ( but is sold separately).

Overall
They also have the Troy-BiltTB 575 Trimmer so that it can interchange attachments from other Trimmer Brand products. The D shaped handle can be adjusted for either right or left handers. This model has the bump head spool on it so if you feel the string shorten just bump it in the grass and it will reload automatically. (Suggestion, the more you bump it on the sidewalk, curb, etc. it will wear the plastic cone and you will end up paying a hefty dollar for replacement parts).

The cutting edge is 17 inches like most standard weed trimmers, but with the straight shaft it is much easier on your back. Curved trimmers are notorious for back problems cause you have to constantly bend with them. With this weight at eight pounds when using the shoulder harness you hardly feel any pressure at all on your back. The line diameter is consistent with most, .095 inches is sturdy enough for harder weeds and thickets. I use mine to cut through poison ivy and poison oak.

 This Troy-Bilt TB575EC STRAIGHT SHAFT GAS TRIMMER comes with a two year limited warranty. The engine, carburetor and the shaft are under that 2 year part. But it all depends on how well you take care of it. The trimmer in the shop I've had for 5 years and was using it 10 times a day on my properties I had. Just hope I get the same life out of this one.I will recommend this product for the homeowner. I would not use this trimmer for everyday usage.

Thank to DLStewart for adding this product
