Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JamesB breaks every 5 seconds
Bought a black and decker weed eater model st4500 because it was cheaper than the other models and I figured it would be good enough. It isn't... Any savings on the low priced weedeater is more than offset by the frustration of the extremely thin line breaking every few minutes and the cost of replacing the line when it does. Even for light weed eating the small diameter is simply inadequate to prevent from frequent breakage.

This is the only trimmer I use because it is simply designed and so very light weight. Because of these features, I can do more before the arthritis begins to stop me. I use it around the property of my home and have a mid size lawn. The first spool lasted about 2 months. If anything ever happens to this, I will replace it with the same item. You really can't go wrong for the price.

The replacement spool is simple and easy to install. I have used them for the past 20 cutting seasons and never had one malfunction. The product is always easy to find in the store and always well stocked - never went to buy some and found the display empty.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mary A great product at a very reasonable price
I had recently purchased a Black & Decker inexpensive ST1000 grass trimmer which performs just great. It is light-weight and easy to handle, much more so than a larger and more expensive one I had purchased earlier that was made by another manufacturer. I was a bit apprensive with the ST1000 at first, due to it's low price, but I recommend it for those who need one for normal around-the-house grass trimming. I had no problem with the cord, but I was gentle with the trimmer when trimming around the concrete driveway.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer This product is a necessity for yard work...
It's getting harder and harder to find this product at a reasonable rate. Without winding your own spools for the weed whacker, it's the best deal going. In a normal summer, we run through 20 - 25 of these so having it available is a MUST. I ordered online and it was available 2 hours later when I arrived. This way I didn't have to make a trip to find the product not in stock or unavailable.
