It has a clutch. Most, if not all, straight shaft trimmers do this.

This unit includes a clutch. The clutch prevents head from turning when not using throttle and allows for easier start by not placing load on unit when pulling starter cord.

Yes. These are 40:1 mix ratios. If you do not want to mix pehaps try 40Fuel which is sold in most Walmart stores. It is pre-blended 2 cycle fuel that contains no ethanol and will help maintain equipment at peak performace. Whatever your decision PLEASE DO NOT USE OLD GAS. Stale fuel is leading cause of poor performance in newly purchased equipment.

It is most likely laying in the store parking lot. The cover doesn't stay shut very well and on mine I have to look around the yard and find it after every use. it's a ring shaped piece of foam. Walmart doesn't sell replacements - I've got the same problem b/c I can't find mine today.

Other than that, for $80 you can't beat it. The complaints seem to come from people that are comparing it to a $300 trimmer.
