“Don't Buy”

Written on: 01/07/2014 by trishog (1 review written)

I purchased a McCullough Stimmer just coming in to last summer. This strimmer never started great and after only about a half hours light work it would start to rev really high, end result is an electrical part has gone in it and as it is just out of warranty the retailer will not cover the cost of this. This strimmer was only ever used for trimming the edges of my garden, would hate to see it if it had to do some heavier work. For your own sake...do not buy a McCullough Strimmers!!!… Read Full Review

Agree, useless. Mine the head part melted, I believe this is a fault. I went back to McCulloch and they said its out of warranty and I can not buy a new part. Awful product, awful customer service.

“Good Strimmer”

Written on: 01/06/2013

Initially the cord is difficult to pull, but once you can get started it's very good. I have done a few gardens where they are on a slope and difficult to get a mower behind trees to cut grass, this is excellent cuts really well would thoroughly recommend. The price was the best I'd seen would have no hesititation ordering from these again. There was only one downside, it was the way in which it arrived. The box was old and completely ripped for all sides, the courrier stated it was sent like… Read Full Review

“McCulloch 210 Strimmer.”

Written on: 25/10/2012

I've had mine well over 10 years,using it maybe 4 times a year on overgrown gardens that it's not designed for.I have also drilled the spoolhead to use the thicker yellow cable,if you do this and intend to cut thick brambles that really need a steel blade you must keep the revs down or the cable will break quickly or the engine will stall.I cannot fault it. Empty the petrol out if you're not going to use it for months as petrol goes stale,change the oil,clean the plug check everthing is tight… Read Full Review

“McCulloch 210 - brilliant!”

Written on: 13/08/2012 by BW2309 (1 review written)

Ive recently bought a 210 secon hand - its a couple of years old at least. Last owner has clearly abused it! I struggled to start it, it would run for only a few mins and would die as soon as put under load! A quick check over revealed the (knackered) spark plug was loose, the fuel pick up inside the tank had perished, causing the cutting out, and the carb' was blocked inside. I spent 40mins at the most, replaced the fuel pipe and stripped and set up the carb. Now just spent 3 hours a day for 3… Read Full Review

My first strimmer was returned under guarantee as it stopped working. The engine kept spinning. I have just got the replacement one out for the first time this year and the cord has pulled out and will not go back. This one is also under guarantee so will be returned. It is a useless item… Read Full Review

“Lightweight, reliable and efficient”

Written on: 13/10/2011

I've had this little lightweight strimmer for three years and use it on my allotment which is full of nasty, invasive brambles and heavy duty weeds - it has never let me down. I had problems starting it at first but now know just what to do and it works a treat. The real joy is it's lightness which means I can use it non stop for an hour with no after effects - I would heartily recommend this product to anyone… Read Full Review

I don't know what the fuss is about. This Strimmer works just dandy for me. Ok the one reviewer is right in saying it wont harvest a field, but my house has got a huge garden & when I moved in it was pretty much wild. The 210 has never let me down. Don't worry, Buy one!… Read Full Review

“Bought the 210 trimmer today 3ed May 2011. Assembly...”

Written on: 03/05/2011

Bought the 210 trimmer today 3ed May 2011. Assembly was easy and it is a nice light weight. Difficult to start initially butas it's brand new I thought nothing of it. Within 10 minutes of use I noticed there was smoke coming from the guard mounting; it was melting!!! Turned it off and the whole head assembly flew off as it slowed down. Mounting was very hot. I think I will be returning it tomorrow. Maybe it was a rogue, I don't know. My first petrol strimmer but no way was it abused… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/05/2011

Exactly the same has happened to me !!!
<br/>End gets very hot each time, mounting melts and head drops off.
<br/>Must be duff batch of machines - no wonder it was reduced in price !!
<br/>I'II be ringing the service people tomorrow to see what they say - and hopefully returning for a refund.
<br/>Starting is hit and miss, sometimes fires up - other times a sod.
<br/>Agree machine is relatively light, but withouit a strap after a while you have to put it down. After 2 minutes the head has dropped off anyway and ground on fire !!
<br/>When machine runs it does cut well.
<br/>Based on others reviews - there must be some good'uns and some crap ones.

if you ever read this comment hi there
not to sound like im belittling you or saying your thick but did you make sure the engine had oil init as alot of modern petrol motors like those have there own oilwell for the engine but some need a specific 2stroke oil to petrol ratio ive found in the past that if i have a brand new 2stroke engine to start i add just a little bit more oil to the petrol just to give it that little extra lubrication if u couldnt get it replaced and still have the broken 1 let me know at masterofgreen@hotmail.co.uk i might be in a position to relieve you of it for a reasonable price

Exactly the same thing has happened to my Trim Mac SL+ strimmer head. It was smoking, melted and flew off. It is also very difficult to start.

Written on: 07/06/2010 by gc0001 (1 review written)

Quite simply the worst garden tool I ever had bar none. After 2 hrs light work the shaft is bent, the engine spins on the shaft and the trigger assembly turns freely on its own axis. It a pain to start and cuts out without warning. Poorly made cheap pile of garbage - Avoid !!!!!!!
The star rating of 1 is a default setting - shame there is not a negative rating… Read Full Review

I'm a professional gardener and would recommend the Mc Cullough over its rivals simply because of its light weight.i, too have adjusted the strimmer head to take heavier line and one line instead of two.

Written on: 16/07/2009

I am a full time gardener and have used my McCullock Trim Mac 210 most days through out the summer months for the past 10 years.I drilled a hole in the spool enlarging it so enabling me to use a 2.40mm strimmer line. Although it has a single line it cuts through nettles ,brambled and most tough grass and weeds in the rockery/patio,turn it over and it edges the lawn and simplicity itself to reload the spool The real beauty of this strimmer is that its super lightweight and easy to start,it never… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/06/2009

Ignore the negative comments about this McCulloch Trimmac 210 Petrol Strimmer machine.
It is a lightweight petrol machine, designed to be an alternative to an electric machine and is great if used within it's design parameters.
It is not a heavy duty machine.
Do not use the 'yellow' 2.4mm line.
If your machine came with a black spool, use
ALM SL002 blue 1.5mm line,
If it came with a green spool use
ALM SL003 green 2.0mm line… Read Full Review
