Customer Questions & Answers

does it come with a power chord?

Can the string be replaced with fixed string head or with a trimmer blade to reduce the issues with string feeding?

I'm looking for a corded electric trimmer that I can swap out the string for a blade so I don't have to mess with the string as much. I see most blades go with the gas trimmers. I'm wondering if this one is compatible with a blade?
Asked by: JA12
I used a heavier string .095 I was thinking about putting a blade on it, but knowing my son was going to be using I opted not to do that.

Can I use thicker than .065 line?

Asked by: buster
I use .095, works great without feed issues. Just don't put more than the spool hold, because it doesn't feed well then and will jam up.

1.8 Amp 9 in. Straight Shaft Bump Feed String Trimmer is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 285.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a great little trimmer! easy to assemble, very light weight, easy to use and it's cheap! Got it for my girl friend (Merle) who is barely 5' and under 130 lbs. This trimmer is so light she now enjoys trimming!. I enjoy drinking adult beverages and writing product reviews. Everyone is happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small, AC powered, yet effective trimmer Easy to assemble and handle. This isn't good for a tall person, you are bending over to work it. The cut path is 9" and I'm still trying to figure out the best angles to hold it. Small to medium trimming, but if you are working real weeds, you may need a more powerful model. I'm glad they made this with AC power, because the utility of the small size and use for lightweight trimming makes this a very good purchase. I haven't owned it long enough to attest to the durability, and I bought spare string refills not knowing how fast I will go through them. A most helpful staff member at customer service made my online purchase easy to pick up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and practical. I have been using a bigger trimmer that was heavy and bulky. This product is a lot easier to operate because of its light weight, and yet it is powerful enough to get the job done. And its compact size and light weight make it more convenient for small areas and narrow spaces. I used the same product before, and it was very reliable and lasted many years before I sold it when I relocated. I was glad to find the same product again. P.S. Remember to wear protective glasses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use & Lightweight Was I surprised about this product after my first use. Not only is it easy to assemble, it's lightweight. After the quick assembly I put this trimmer to quick use. The trimmer is not only durable it's up to any challenge. I used the trimmer on some over grown weeds ( two months old) & it trimmed them like it was a slicer. I was so impressed that I called the wife to see me in action. I felt like I was Chuck Norris in Missing in Action tearing up the fields in Vietnam. My father had happen to come over one day while I was using the trimmer & he was surprised with the ability of this little trimmer. He liked it so much that he ended up borrowing it for a weekend. Once I seen that he liked it as much as I did, I bought him one for Father's Day. I highly recommend this product. It's a diamond in the rough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and Effective When I went to buy this products the reviews did not help me at all, so I really hope that my review will help someone to make the final decision on this purchase. I was able to put this "string trimmer" together in about 5 minutes. It literally clicks together and gets two screws through it to hold it all together. It has a little clip where the extention cord plugs in to hold the end of the extention cord so that while you are walking around trimming the cord doesn't come unplugged. It is very quiet yet surprisingly powerful. I went right for the thick weeds in my yard and it ate right through them. One of the reviews that I read said that the tool is not long enough... For a very tall man it would probably be a bit uncomfortable. For a girl who is 5'7 it is the perfect size and weight. I don't have to bend over to use it and it only weighs 4 lbs. Very easy on the back! I think that this was overall a very good purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent weed trimmer After we used lawn mower, weeds are growing higher than the grass. Some places lawn mower can't reach. I was looking for a string trimmer with light weight that easy to operate, that is not battery or gas operated, and is not expensive. After I read people reviews, I understood I found it and ordered trimmer right away. We couldn't wait to get it. It came quick during 3-4 days. Husband assembled it quick and easy. We tried it and both amazed of the result. I can't believe this small and light device works so nice, quick and easy. Love it and recommend it for the weeds for sure. I don't think it could replace lawn mower. But it definitely needed for people who have lawn. We are very happy with this purchase and hope it will work long time with no problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sufficient for small areas I recently moved into a mobile home which had a patch of grass of about 8 X 10. It would have been useless to buy a lawn mower for such a little bit of lawn. I opted to buy this electric weed wacker because I felt that it would be sufficient to do the job. It works very well and I am pleased with it. One thing to be aware of: it is very short in length which is the main reason I bought it. I am a 5 ft female and it has always been hard for me to manage the longer weed trimmers. So if you are short like me, I would highly recommend this!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from For the money it's perfect - with only one caveat! I love my new weedwhacker. I gave it 4 instead of 5 because of the length. Just a few inches longer and it would go beyond perfect. I'm tall. I have to bend over a bit to use it. Thankfully I don't have much grass to trim so it's ok... but if there were more to do, it might be tough. For the price... I love it. It does everything it says it will and does it pretty well. You do have to take your time when using this little beauty. It doesn't cut fast - but it does the job and for under $20 I couldn't ask for more (well I could but that would be greedy :)!
