Product Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Trimmer [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We needed a new trimmer and the Cub Cadet is Amazing , it was so simple to put together,it's sturdy and well made as a woman who helped in the yard I love that it's not super heavy and it's the easiest starting trimmer we have had in years,the bump head is great and it cuts through the heavy weed in our back field as easy as the light weeds in our yard, just please remember you need to let it warm up a few minutes before you get started. Cub Cadet is a quality brand we trust to last for years.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great when it worked This trimmer started off great. Lots of power to cut through heavy brush. It is on the heavy side so I would not recommend for everyday use. After using it a few times it wouldn’t run right and had to run it on half choke. After using it a few more times it was difficult to even start and when it started it wouldn’t hardly stay running. I love my cub cadet lawn mower, but unfortunately I can’t say the same for the cub cadet trimmer. I went and bought a Stihl after one year of use with this cub cadet trimmer. Very disappointed with the trimmer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy Powerful Trimmer [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We live out in the country on an acre and a half . Needless to say, trimming and edging is a pain. This trimmer has made the job a lot easier. It is powerful, easy to start and operate. One of my favorite things about this trimmer is the length. Being over 6 ft. tall it saves constant bending over. Reaching under shrubs and my propane tank is much easier. I highly recommend this trimmer, especially for large yards and areas to trim like mine. It is powerful and sturdy built.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best grass trimmer i ever had [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Wow this grass trimmer works so well. I used it to trim my front and back yard and also used it to cut down allot of weeds that grow inbetween my shrubs. The different speeds are great so that you don't mess up your grass. It was easy to put together and easy to fill up with gas and oil. It was easy handling not heavy at all. I would recommend this to anyone that needs a good trimmer. I also like thst fact that you can purchase attachments for it so its very universal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful; precise trim with low-profile head [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] As a general-purpose heavier-duty trimmer, this Cub Cadet 4-Cycle Trimmer Model SS470 is working well for us on our rural acreage. A light-duty trimmer can handle basic low weeds and trimming around flower beds and the driveway, but a well-designed powerful trimmer like the SS470 is needed to handle the heavy brush, tall weeds, new blackberry bush “volunteers” and honeysuckle vines that keep attempting to reclaim territory you painstakingly cleared two or three weeks ago. The trimmer is exceptionally easy to assemble in a few minutes by following the booklet diagram and instructions. The low profile and 17-inch cutting width makes it easy to get under and around the bushes we do want to keep, like roses, hydrangeas and peonies, while the sturdy shield keeps blowback bits of twigs and debris away from our feet and legs. As always with any trimmer, I highly recommend you wear protective eye shields, footwear and clothing that covers your lower legs. One feature I especially like is that there is no more need to keep a special gas can or forgetting which gas can has the oil/gas mix. The oil goes in a separate tank on the trimmer, and you just add regular ethanol-free gas to the gas tank. It starts without a fuss or hassle. The included shoulder strap is a great asset as the trimmer weighs a hefty 13-1/2 lbs before adding fuel. The contour handle provides a secure grip as well. The one problem I have is storing it as it is topheavy, and I suggest to Cub Cadet that they add some type of harness so it can be carefully hung from wall hooks when not in use or offer the consumer after-market wall-storage hooks specially designed for this and their other similar trimmers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We used this to weedeat our entire yard because we live on very uneven terrain that is difficult to mow. It edges very nicely and you could tell that it was built well. The sturdiness of it did make it a little heavy, but we also were using it for the entire yard so it could just be our lack of muscles. It was really nice to have everything that you needed to get going in the box (oil and gas). The gas fill is kind of at a weird angle so if you have it just laying down and try to fill it with gas then be careful not to spill. Overall, we could not be more pleased with this product. Prior to this we were using a 10 year old weedeater that would randomly die in the middle of the process, so this is a fantastic upgrade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight/durable/straight shaft weed eater [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The SS470 is a light weight, straight shaft weed eater. It offers different attachments, making this a viable option for multiple tasking. I like the 25 cc engine which makes it smooth and has enough power to edge around walkways. Being a 4 cycle engine, just adding gas is a plus, no need to mix oil. The bump head feeds well and is durable. I like that the straight shaft allows you to get into tight spaces and it is well balanced.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent product but not a good fit for husband [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My husband was so excited to receive this free sample of SS 470 25 cc PRO 4-cycle 17 cutting swath straight shaft to use and review but it was too long for him to be able to handle well close up while edging around flowerbeds and yard .. He is 5 ft 3 1/2 inches and he said it was just too long to be comfortable to do edging.or close cutting. Perfect for long grass and weeds in hard to reach places {perfect for larger yards or acreage .Or where you need the extra reach and just swipe side to side..The weight was good with the strap and the bump head was a good figure. He suggested a telescopic handle would be perfect for shorter statue persons. He also loved that the oil and gas came with the machine so you know you have the right type from the start. So convenient

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent weed eater! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love this weed eater because it’s powerful while still being user friendly! It’s easy to use and there’s minimal upkeep needed. As a busy parent with a full-time job, I wanted something that got the job done and was simple to use. This weed eater fits the bill. I also like the sleek design, and I really love the comfort grip. It’s easy to use for long periods without my hand getting tired.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy using weed eater [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I got this item for my husband. He originally had used an electric weed eater, but he enjoyed using this gas weed eater. It came with concentrated gasoline and line. You can use regular gasoline with it as well. He liked the ease of use because it came with a strap to wear and it was lightweight. It cut through the weeds quickly and diminished his weed eating time by half.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! Super Powerful! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This trimmer is sooo powerful that it amazed me. The assembly instruction were easy to follow and it was pretty quick to put it together. The engine is a 4 stroke so it eliminates the need to mix the oil and fuel!. In simple words this trimmer is great, starts quickly, and the most important is that it is very powerful and well built, I definitely recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top of the line weedeater [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love this weedeater it cuts great. It is a little heavy but considering that this is heavy duty and comes with a strap to help carry it, the weight doesn't bother me at all. It also rotates so you can use it as an edger which you don't find in many weedeaters. Overall great weedeater and I would recommend this to friends and family.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great and powerful product [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Product was packaged well and extremely easy to put together. Took a total of 5 minutes with minimal effort. This producf is powerful and cut through thick weeds with ease. My only complaint is the weight. Once full of gas it's a bit heavy but overall works great. I received this product at no charge in return for my honest review

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Won’t run long I went through three of them from retailer still can’t get one to run more than 45 min. Shuts off won’t go again until it cools down completely, on the third I gave up returning them and went to a cub cadet dealer and was told they are junk and they don’t sell nor service them wish I knew that before I lost the receipt

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was honestly surprised to receive the trimmer. It is an amazing product that is worth every penny. It came with a can of fuel too. It started easily and did a great job with the lawn. I used it all around the house and walked away feeling like it did a great job.

The shoulder strap holds it at the perfect level to make it easy to maneuver. The design is ergonomic adding to the ease of use. Another quality product from Cub Cadet. I will continue to purchase my yard equipment from Cub Cadet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great weed eater! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Just what I would expect from a weed eater! It cranked in two pulls of the cable which was awesome for me. Easy to use and worked on the thicker grass as well. I am very glad this came with a strap. Overall, pretty good, no issues, and gets the job done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This product is very nice and has a very good quality. It’s very powerful and cuts great. The only downside would be it’s a bit heavy but the strap that comes with it helps a lot with that. I would definitely recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great, definitely a good one [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I'm always happy to try out a garden tool that doesn't require a cord. This gas-powered weed trimmer was effective, easy to use, and though a little noisy (what weed trimmer isn't?), I'm happy that I got it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great trimmer! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This lawn trimmer is easy to put together and works great! I used it as a week eater and an edger for my lawn. The strap makes it easy to control and the directions are simple to follow. Works well!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed Used this 3 times and terrible performance. Difficult to start, when I finally get it running without stalling following the start instructions, there is very little power and it will eventually stall again, and again. Disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from not bad I bought it at ts I wish it was a like 4 6 inches longer im 6 ft tall and have to bend over its also a tad bit heavy but its a 4 cycle motor runs good, if they have a shaft extender would be great I would buy it

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A piece of junk I've had this trimmer for less than a year and it has degraded continually. It is harder to start. Warmup is required. And oil seeps into the carburetor housing. It is at best a dog. Do not waste your money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Power [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Great trimmer for smaller or hard to reach places. High powered and easy to use. Not as heavy as I thought it would be, so it's light and portable.
