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.

Junk

By Elmer

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

Quit running after only 3 weeks of limited use. Wouldn't start again. Gas mixture correct. Emptied tank and added Sea Foam cleanout. Left overnight. Still wouldn't work. Repeated twice more. Replaced carburetor. Started right up. Ran fine for 10 minutes. Shut off. Wouldn't start the next day. I'll never but another Troy Build product

Won't start

By DMehall50

from Statesville NC

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

I purchased my trimmer last year but did not use it till this year! After using it a couple of times it now is impossible to keep running! After reading other reviews it seems I am not alone. I have yet to replace the trimming line. I have cleaned the carb and the gas and air lines put in fresh fuel and still won't start and continue to run! I believe this is a very poor and defective product! (On the positive side I own a troybilt lawn tractor and push mower with no problems)

Hard to start.

By Wills

from Western Pa

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

Used another brand for twenty years but could no longer replace parts. Tried this one and soon bought the drill adapter for aid in starting. Arm tired out quicly even with easy spring starting. Heavier than my former brand and twice as loud, but not as efficiant. Would not buy another.

By NoNick

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

I really like this trimmer. It does a great job. The only drawback is that it starts hard. I have to pull the rope 8 to 12 times to start it after using the recommended procedure.

    Troy should be embarrassed about how poorly he built this piece of junk. Hard to start, wobbly and the string feeder works poorly.

    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!

    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.

    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,

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!!!
