Bolens BL160 FAIL

Less than 2 years old, pull starter won't recoil. Bunch of *** plastics parts doomed to fail and designed to prevent repair. Waste of $160.

User's recommendation: First and last purchase of Bolens. Don't waste your money!

Won’t start

Bought this weed eater two summers ago. Its been used maybe, MAYBE 5 times for a total of two hours. It flat would not start this summer. It was stored inside and well taken care of. They primer button and fuel line were replaced and it still wont start. We took it for repair and was told it was junk and had no compression. Amazingly enough the warranty we bought was never received. Threw $168 away!

User's recommendation: Don’t buy this brand ever.

Pull cord

Bought late August it's now November used only a few times went to start and the pull cord is all the way out .no starting this weed eater..products keep getting cheaper and cheaper in their manufacturing.why bother buying anything at Lowe's when you can't get it repaired...and you can't return it after 30 days..it took me a long time in the store to pick out this weed whacker and I was really happy with it,it did a good job.so disappointed.cant rate the company yet as it is Saturday and who the *** works on the weekend ,when that's when you need them the most.

Biggest mistake ever.

NeverI sacrificed quality over price. I grew up with Stihl. Never had a problem. Bought a Bolens in July from Lowes. Ive used it about three times. It cranks great the first time you use it, but cut it off for any reason, and you are done for the day. I have a big property and have never been able to cut it all in one day because of this gigantic pos weed eater. The line wont feed either. You can only put a tiny bit of string in it and bumping the head just broke the inside. Ive used it three times. Im only here because I was trying to find a fix online and saw his many other people are having the same trouble. Im back to borrowing my moms weed eater for now.

User's recommendation: Never buy this.
