Remington RM2510 Rustler 25cc 2-Cycle String Trimmer Review

Remington RM2510 Rustler is a budget priced gas string trimmer. It’s very cheap so naturally the first question that comes to mind is can it really be any good?


Remington RM2510 Rustler has 2-cycle 25cc engine – meaning you will have to mix oil with fuel. It has cutting swath of 16 inches and uses 0.095” dual line.

Overall cutting performance is decent. It’s not very powerful compared to some more expensive gas weed wackers but it has enough power to handle your average yard.

It’s a bit difficult to start and you will most likely have to pull many times before it finally does. It’s also a bit noisy as well.


Remington RM2510 Rustler has bump feed head but it’s flawed. First of all it often fails to work at all. Second it’s very cheaply made and unlikely to last.

Remington RM2510 has curved shaft which isn’t a bad thing but most consumers prefer straight.


Quality might be the biggest drawback of Remington RM2510. You can just feel it’s cheaply made and not durable so it’s very questionable how long it will last. Consumer reports just seem to confirm this as many have complained about parts breaking or string trimmer stopping to work all together. Be warned that this might be the case of “buy cheap, buy twice”. That being said there are also reports from consumers who have used this unit for multiple seasons without any major issues.

Remington RM2510 weighs a bit over 14 pounds – making it rather heavy even for a gas string trimmer. Heavier unit means more muscle fatigue which isn’t a good thing unless you want a good workout while trimming your yard.


Remington RM2510 Rustler is a very inexpensive string trimmer and for a reason. It’s flawed and not well built. You should probably look for a more expensive yet far better unit.
