Forth time it was used it quit running. No spark to plug. Customer service is just a recording. Closest service is 20 miles. Appears other people having same problems with MTD products. Would not recommend buying this product. Why do I need 100 words to describe this...

The pull start assembly is poorly engineered and built. The round stamped steel ring eventually works loose allowing the rope spool to move out of position, which in turn allows the captured flat spring that has a bazillion wraps to escape the housing it's supposed to...

Bought a BOLENS gas blower from Lowes because it was cheap but had a 2 year warranty. These small gas engines seem to only last about a year no matter that I only use non-ethanol gas and carefully filter the fuel. After only a few months ownership and very little hours...

Having issues with the bump head assembly, it is apparantly stripped out or has other issues beyond my knowledge. I have removed the bump head by prying off this cap, the bolt and washer will not come off i have used every tool available to me. This is a design flaw from the manufacture and should be addressed as so. Maybe a class action lawsuit is in order for this to be taken seriously.

I have a murry by mtd *** eater. Used it 3 times & it wont hit a lick as in starting. BE WARE OF ANY PRODUCT THAT IS MANUFACTURED BY MTD. The sell under many names. I also have 2 yellow weedeaters that have the brand name Bolens also manufactured by MTD they dont run either. One runs until it gets hot & quits. Buyer beware their products basically SUCK.

Very frustrating that the BL160 trimmer continuously stalls out and I can's restart it when the engine is hot. There doesn't seem to be any compression as your pull the cord. I even replaced the spark plus even though it is only the second season that I'm using it. ...

Bolens BL 110 Design Defect
I have a BL 110 string trimmer. It is the second Bolens product I have owned. After a few months, it developed an issue with the string reel and bump knob. That is to say, the bump knob cannot be removed by hand, and in fact progressed to the point where it could...

had for less than a year- carb failed. (40.00) to replace.. (and, now rope is broke). It's never been consistent, or worked the way (any) tool should. This is not user-error. The 'product' is built SO cheaply.. I'd be embarrassed to even pretend! that it is a...

I bought a Bolens Bl 160 *** eater and after one summer of use it keeps flooding out. The carb adjustments are designed so that no one, not even a dealer, can adjust it. Bolens said the carb would have to be replace for $45 parts, (conveniently not covered by the...
