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

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

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

Bought new last year and used twice for 10 mins ,really difficult to start so went back to use old battery strimmer .Just brought it back out today to cut down 8 inch high grass in back garden of friends new house, used it for 30 minutes cutting and it seems like the engine has siezed as it shuddered to hault and the ripchord wont budge .100 quid for less than a hours gardening ,probably could have hired Alan Titchmarsh cheaper… 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

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 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

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. Just makes it easier to re-fill. brilliant product for a brilliant price, IMO… Read Full Review

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

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

after years of frustration(frequent cutting out, running too fast, costly repairs, wire breaking every minute) I have finally ditched this piece of junk (a McCulloch Trimmac 210 Petrol Strimmer).

I got my McCulloch Trimmac 210 Petrol strimmer 2nd hand from the local paper and so it was cheap. I feel that it doesn't owe me anything.
To get it to start, you could keep 'treating' it to new spark-plugs, that it keeps coking up.
Alternatively, use a wire brush soaked in petrol to de coke the plug… Read Full Review
