Everything about this trimmer is great, trimmer head does a great job and is easy to load and if you follow the instructions the string won't bind up or stop feeding like most string trimmers do.The attachments are easy to swap out and the TB 720 turbo blower attachment works way better than expected, has the power to make short work of leaves and doesn't tire you out like the hand held blowers. The best and most important thing about this trimmer is the power start, as like most gas power lawn machines they tend to be cold natured, but with the jump start accessory it comes to life very quick, and after that only needs 1 or 2 light pulls and it starts right up. I love my troy-bilt!

I bought this 5 months ago. Already the trimmer bump knob broke, the coupler knob bolt screw broke, and the shaft split-boom-coupler assembly broke so the trimmer won't cut (rotate). I should have know as the trimmer was harder and harder to start over time that the unit is not a quality unit. I've followed all instructions, maintenance, assembly and care instructions to the hilt! 5-months and now defective? Moreover, the handle and angle for cutting while carrying is not good/aligned for anyone over 5'10" and causes the user to bend over - that's back problem territory.

worst purchase ever!!!!!!!

By Disconcerted

from Florida

Comments about Troy-Bilt® 25 CC Gas String Trimmer (TB22EC):

I purchased a TB22 EC Trimmer followed all the instructions using pre-mixed fuel that contained no alcohol. It started the first time and thought it was great for about thirty minutes. It quit and would not start again. Took it all apart made sure everything was clean and it still wouldn't start.
Took it back to the dealer and exchanged it. Bought some new pre-mixed fuel without ethanol and the exact same thing has happened! I have never had this happen with any small engine before that I couldn't get to work again after following all the instructions.This one I intend to throw in the trash!

Works well

By JayC1

Comments about Troy-Bilt® 25 CC Gas String Trimmer (TB22EC):

The product works well and has the ability to handle multiple different adaptors to do other jobs. Selected this product because of cost and easy starting capability. So far OK.

Great little trimmer

By Auno

from San Benito, TX 78586, USA

Comments about Troy-Bilt® 25 CC Gas String Trimmer (TB22EC):

I've only had one other gas trimmer, and one cordless trimmer, so I don't have much to compare to. That said, however, this is far and away the best one I've had (of the 3). I guess the only complaint I have, rather, a suggestion for improvement, is that it's difficult to use as an edger, although certainly not impossible. That is, I'd like it if it were easier to hold in the turned position.

Super hard to start. After two years one of the fuel lines rotted through. I'm waiting on a new fuel tank assembly I ordered.

This trimmer works okay, but it is not exactly easy to start. Also, I need to frequently stop to realign the string.

TB22 EC Curved Shaft String Trimmer

By Nicodeangelo123

from Rye, CO 81069, USA

Comments about Troy-Bilt® 25 CC Gas String Trimmer (TB22EC):

hey guys. i absolutely love this trimmer. it cuts great and has long run times. the only thing about it is the starting. it isn't hard, and i don't need to prime the engine. i pull a couple of times until it turns over a few times on full choke, then on half choke i pull full throttle until it starts and i throttle up every time it tries to die. after a minute or two, it'll stay running so i turn off the choke. nothing bad about it, but this trimmer is great. i would absolutely recommend this to anybody.

Poor Performance

By BusDriver

from PA

Comments about Troy-Bilt® 25 CC Gas String Trimmer (TB22EC):

The TB22 EC is extremely hard to start, even after you follow the directions on the label fixed to the motor. Once it does start I have to keep the choke set at the 2nd position in order to get any speed out of the engine. If I move the choke to the off/open position, the motor stumbles and stalls. The trimmer could also be 6 inches longer. Using it, I have to bend over and after several minutes, it is hard on the back,

TB22 EC

By grouchwell2

from Undisclosed

Comments about Troy-Bilt® 25 CC Gas String Trimmer (TB22EC):

I've gone through 3 of these units in the past 24 months. They seem to work well at first, then after a few months, they start to develop issues with running, the bump head breaks easily and then they just won't start. I really think this unit needs to go back to RD for design evaluation. I will most certainly buy a different brand this time.

Spool re wind tough

By Normt

from Massachusetts, USA

Comments about Troy-Bilt® 25 CC Gas String Trimmer (TB22EC):

The ability to properly rewind a new pair of trimmer line is very difficult and time consuming. Buying a ready wound spool is costly and a pain in the rear. There must be some engineer in this company that can come up with an easier way to do this. I suspect that troy built has made this so difficult s because the owner will become so frustrated that he will go out and buy a new spool rather than try to rewind it himself after his first try at it. Very poor design with little thought to the customer

Runs well once you get it to start

By OmahaDoug

from Omaha, NE, USA

Comments about Troy-Bilt® 25 CC Gas String Trimmer (TB22EC):

I like how the trimmer runs and trims. The string feed is smooth and does not jam. My only issue is I have to almost yank my arm off to get this thing to start. Minimum 20 cranks! Once it starts, it runs until I shut it off but I dread the start up process each time.

Unsatisfied internet purchase w/o handling unit

By Tadeshowjoe

from Cleveland, OH, USA

Comments about Troy-Bilt® 25 CC Gas String Trimmer (TB22EC):

My biggest mistake was ordering off the internet without handling unit prior. A lot of unsatisfactory concerns here after using for the first time. Motor is heavy and not balanced well. It hurts your hands trying to keep unit balanced and hurts the back using on a big yard. The shaft is too short for me whom I am 6'1" and causes me to have to bend over while using to reach the work and after a while your back gets mighty tired of hunching over. Very tall person unfrienly. Too short,too heavy and not balanced well. Also the dual string head only takes 12 feet and needs replaced often.

Trimmer quit running

By NMcowboy

from New Mexico, USA

Comments about Troy-Bilt® 25 CC Gas String Trimmer (TB22EC):

After running the trimmer for approximately 30 minutes, it died and would not start. While trying to locate a service center, it appears there are not any for a great distance. Finally after a month, the store advised to call the 800 number on the box, which we did. Was told to spray the carburetor with carb cleaner. Have not obtained any yet, but was finally able to get it started using starter fluid. Have not tried starting again.

TB22E Trimmer

By tommyc1954

from Berkshires, Ma

Comments about Troy-Bilt® 25 CC Gas String Trimmer (TB22EC):

Sorry to say I had to return my first one for a replacement. Trimmer head came apart three out of three uses and shaft froze up on third time out. Second one is holding up so far but have not used very much. Poor design of bolt that hold spool to head. Came out on last try on first machine and would not stay put thereafter.

Troybilt TB22 EC

By Mathist

from Undisclosed

Comments about Troy-Bilt® 25 CC Gas String Trimmer (TB22EC):

I purchased this TB22 EC Troybilt Trimmer with multiple attachments last year because I wanted to upgrade from electric extension cords. After 2 months usage, I returned it because the drive broke and would not engage the attachments. Since I bought the trimmer it hasn't run properly. It' ll start okay but early on I had to run it slightly choked. I could never slide the carb lever over to the 3 setting without it stalling. This year I had the carburetor replaced, and now I'm told the compression is only 60 vs 95........NEVER AGAIN!!!

Big Ole Country

By BigCountry

from Fulton County, GA, USA

Comments about Troy-Bilt® 25 CC Gas String Trimmer (TB22EC):

I have only had the "TB22 EC" trimmer for a few days. However, right out the box, it put together easy for me. It's economical and light weight. I mixed my 40:1 non-ethanol gas, and chopped down my backward weeds and all, without any problems. I completed 2 more houses the same day, just to break the string trimmer in. I'm not a professional landscaper. However, I just got tired of lugging the extension cord around on my electric weedwacker, and did not want a battery powered one. In its class, the TB22 EC performed better than expected so far. Who knows, a few months down the road, I will complete a follow up review. Strangely enough, I like the sound of the engine. I'm purchasing the saw blade attachment soon, to see how it performs.

Purchased about a month ago, used one time previously. Started hard from the very first time I used it but figured it was new and needed to run some. Have not been able to start without difficulty. Stalls out every time. Will not purchase another.
