6.5-Amp Straight Shaft Electric String Trimmer is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 417.

We have had two of these puppies and the one consistency is that they go through twine like there is no tomorrow. Even the good twine, installed properly and carefully. Just spits it out as fast as a baby getting their first taste of raw brussel sprouts. When I do my front and back (average sized suburban) yards, it takes nearly two full spools to finish the job. I've probably spent more on twine since I bought this last summer than I paid for the unit. I attached a photo of a spool that I filled completely and used for MAYBE five minutes. Over half empty. Total junk. I'm giving mine away. You've been warned.

After several uses, the previous model that I had (similar to this one) started using up the up the string spool very quickly. Inasmuch as Home Depot doesn't fix thesec I figured it would be cheaper to just get another one (the previous one was over a year since purchase, so Home Depot wouldn't take it back). When I got the new one and put it together, the first time I used it, the spool of string was empty again after only about 20 minutes of use. At almost $10 per spool, that was way too expensive. Very disappointed. Have always been happy with Black & Decker products. Needless to say, I returned that new one immediately and they refunded my purchase price without any problems.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from burt out at power inlet where extension cord plugs in. On march 3rd 2017 with in one hour of use on basic lawn care. It started to heat up at the handle. Wanted to check it out pulled out the extension cord thats a brand new Ridged 50ft. And it melted the housing, not the cord but where the prongs are again all within a hour of pulling it out of the sealed never opened box from home depot. I had a 6.5v B

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed Lasted less than year of very light duty trimming of a small front yard. First,the movable plastic part with the brass bushing inside the string housing broke. To avoid warranty hassles I purchased two in eBay,cheap.Then,a motor bearing failed, but was easily replaced with one from a skateboard, they are exactly the same size. After that, the motor burned and since I couldn't find my receipt, I went and bought another one. I like this trimmer very much for its great features, so for $12.00 I purchased a 2 year replacement warranty. This time I intend to save the receipt...

Like all the other reviews state, this thing goes through string like crazy. Doesn't spit it out at a normal pace. Spits out long sections at a time hitting legs and cutting through pants. I have an extremely tiny yard and it takes 2 spools to do it. The string has been my only complaint but considering that's the main component of this device, I'd say it's a big complaint.. please spend the extra money and buy something different. Had a lot of issues with black+decker products so just steer clear of them all together.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice little trimmer I'm on my 3rd trimmer. You get about 2 seasons out of them and in S. Texas we have long seasons. I love the wheel for edging the sidewalk. My only complaint is I wish it was a bit longer. If your a tall person your back may not like this trimmer.

The trimmer is worthless and has no place in my lawn equipment. The string, two rolls, $22.00 dollars in cash was run through the trimmer is a distance of 50 feet. I had such a good experance with my previous B&D trimmer (GH700) I am really disappointed. The (GH700) served me for nearly 7 years. I know now why the check out at Home Depot offered me at the cost of $7.00 a replacement within one year. If Home Depot will not allow a return on the trimmer I will never buy another Black & Decker product.
