Auto feed

How is the auto feed on this? I currently have an older Black & Decker Grass Hog with an auto feed spool and it is horrible. No matter how careful I am to reload the spool, it never auto feeds properly or it jams. So I dread using it and I'm leary of getting another trimmer with an auto feed spool.

I have only had it a little over a month, but so far, no line jams. I think it's important to get the brand name line, and not a generic one

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GREAT! I bought this trimmer for my son so he can start learning how to take care of a lawn. It's a great trimmer if you are looking for something lightweight and easy to use . It's power is good for it being one string in oppose to other two string edgers. If you're looking into have a good electric edger and not spending more this one is for you. I also recommend to use number 1 power . There's a option of choosing 1 or 2 , 2 is of course powerful but drains the battery. I just cut my edges with the 2 and my battery drained just when I was about done . With the 1 set on I never drained my battery . January 26, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Trims grass Works well as a trimmer. Battery life is only good for 15 minutes in the low power mode which is its down fall. Home Depot doesn't sell extra batteries for this product at my local store. This would be good for small yards. I gave it 3 stars due to the battery life. If I can't find extra batteries, I'll go back to a gas trimmer. May 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great trimmer/edger... lightweight and accurate Super simple, lightweight and practical. The edger feature is a nice bonus that can give almost a pro cut look. The wheel is great for keeping you from getting to close to the edge and keep snapping the line. The bump free line is awesome as you don't have to do anything to keep the line length correct (aside from changing the spool when you're out of line of course). The trimmer works for a long time on power modes one and two but obviously burns through battery a bit faster on mode 2 but is good for thicker patches. For $89-100 (depending if on sale) the unit comes with a battery and charger which sells anywhere from $30 (battery alone) or $40 for the battery and charger so it's well worth the money and you can swap the batteries out on the Matrix system (which is awesome in its own) and a whole bunch of outdoor accessories. Great buy! May 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great trimmer I just bought this trimmer---it's great !! The battery at setting 1 easily handled my yard for close to an hour....and the battery was still well charged. I like the ability to swing the head of the trimmer so to edge along my sidewalks and shrubbery beds. It came with a shield....I would recommend not putting that on the head of the trimmer as it was tough to see exactly where I was trying to edge. So I removed mine. Also, I bought a spare battery..,but now I'm thinking about returning it since this trimmer goes the distance !! I would recommend this one. May 14, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good for the price... So far, this trimmer has worked well in my half-acre of a backyard. The only thing is: I wish it would extend and become a bit longer. I'm pretty tall, and having to bend down a little bit to trim can hurt my back a bit. But other than that, I think having an electric trimmer vs. battery operated works out well with gas prices rising, and it gets the job done well. May 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amazing little trimmer! Did my research and read reviews. I didn't believe that this little thing would work that well being only one string (versus the two string gas powered hunk of junk I had before that I thought did a good job) but I am amazed at how well it it trims and edges. The only thing I will say against it is the battery life and re-charging time but I knew that going in. As long as you don't have a huge area to do or are not in a rush to do it then it will work just fine. I'm going to buy a second battery and a better charger and then it will be perfect! April 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent cordless choice This Black & Decker LST522 trimmer / edger is a nice cordless trimmer with excellent features. The trimmer can be rotated with the twist of the wrist so that it performs as an edger; it comes with an edger wheel attached. The trimmer speed can be set at 1 for longer battery usage or 2 for more power. The length of the shaft can also be adjusted with a simple twist. I am 6’ 1” tall and fully extended is best for me. The D shaped handle angle can be adjusted with just the push of a button. The cutting head is the single string type. It uses the Model No. AF-100 replacement spool filled with .065 inch (1.65 mm) round nylon mono-filament line. It comes with a full spool already installed. Assembly is very easy and only consisted of simply pushing the plastic guard into a slot and securing with a single screw. A single 20-Volt 2.5AH Lithium-Ion battery is included. The battery charger that is included is very compact and it takes about 3-5 hours to recharge the battery. With a total weight of less than 8 pounds the trimmer is light weight but it still feels sturdy. It is ideal for trimming borders and edging sidewalks as well as drive ways. I get about 30-55 minutes of moderate to light trimming from one charge. If you have been using a gas or plug in type trimmer you will love the convenience and comfort of this versatile cordless trimmer. Based on my experience I recommend it as a good choice for the smaller suburban lawn. I have provided photos and a short demo video, I hope they help. January 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great trimmer so far! I bought this April 3, 2016. I charged the battery (it took 5 hours). It rained and snowed after I bought it, so I didn't get to use it until April 16, 2016. I got about 150 feet of edging done in 40 minutes and the battery died. I think it was because I charged it two weeks earlier, and it must have discharged a bit (at least I am hoping that is why it only lasted that long). It did a great job edging. It's easy to use, light weight, seems to be sturdy, and it doesn't vibrate like my old electric Weedeater did (RIP after 29 years of service). The second charge took a little over 6 hours. I hope this one lasts at least half as long as my Weedeater did. It has a lot of power on the #1 setting. Fingers crossed this baby keeps going for a long time. April 18, 2016
