7.2 Amp Curved Shaft 14 in. High Performance Electric String Trimmer is rated 1.9 out of 5 by 45.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from PURE JUNK I AM A VERY ACTIVE SENIOR CITIZEN WHO OUTWORKS MANY OF MY NEIGHBORS IN THE YARD. 20+ YEARS OF DOING EVERYTHING MYSELF QUALIFIES ME AS AN EXPERIENCED OPERATOR OF YARD WORK EQUIPMENT. I PURCHASED THIS B & D PIECE OF JUNK AFTER MY OLD (6 YEARS) IRON SIDES B&D DIED. WHAT A JOKE AND DISAPPOINTMENT THIS "HIGH PERFORMANCE" THING IS. INITIALLY, IT FELT POWERFUL, BUT IT ATE THE STRING THAT WAS LOADED ON THE SPOOL IN LESS THAN 10 MINUTES. THE COST OF STRING ALONE WOULD JUSTIFY HIRING SOMEONE TO DO THE WORK FOR ME. TOO BAD I WAITED TOO LONG TO RETURN IT. NOW I AM TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT THE NEXT TRIMMER WILL BE..

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stay away from any B & D Electric Trimmers This is the type of product that gives American companies a bad name. I have been through 2 of their products and never again. The product is designed to fail. The problems are all connected to the spool mechanism. Line doesn't feed properly whether you buy replacement spools or buy line separately. Line gets jammed in the side or the feed goes through yards of strings once a minute. Don't plan on more then a year of use before you have to replace it. Horrible product. I follow directions and do all proper maintenance on all my tools. My lawn mower and snow blower are both 10 years old and run like new. Spend the money and buy quality.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flawed design Look around online. This machine has a design flaw that will waste your money. The motor is connected to the drive shaft with a belt between two cogs. One cog is metal, the other is nylon. When stressed, the nylon cog melts. How much could that cost to replace? It is only available as part of the motor assembly for $65 from Black and Decker, and the problem will remain. Look elsewhere. Good power and ergodynamics will not make up for poor engineering and planned obsolescence. Don't waste money filling our landfills with junk. Spend more, get something that will last. Wish I had.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Black and Decker should remove this from their product line. I should have read the reviews before purchasing this product which deserves NO stars. I only used it twice - once at the end of the season 2012 and now the first time in 2013. Both times it would work for 6 - 8 feet, jam, and then "eat" the line. After only 2 uses on a small yard it has gone through 3 spools. It's over 90 days since purchase so I cannot even take it back for an exchange. What an abosulute waste of good money. Black and Decker should stop making this product and remove existing inventory from the shelves. In addition, the Home Depot staff must stop recommending it to unsuspecting buyers.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless Garbage The feed system is a joke. Don't waste your money. It does not work. If it does advance line, a big hunk will advance, tear through your clothes and flesh. Very painful.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbage Bennie works for the company, this trimmer design is trash you have to keep buying spools at 5 bucks a piece and you have to keep taking the head apart to feed the string manually it took me hours to trim my lawn i even got mad and threw this trash to the ground very hard getting a new trimmer asap

Rated 2 out of 5 by from plastic gear does'nt last and possibly melted/overheated that cause the belt to break Look around online. This machine has a design flaw that will waste your money. The motor is connected to the drive shaft with a belt between two cogs. One cog is metal, the other is nylon. When stressed, the nylon cog melts. How much could that cost to replace? It is only available as part of the motor assembly for $65 or more, and the problem will remain. Only if part is available I would consider recommending to friends and keep this. Look elsewhere. Good power and ergodynamics will not make up for poor engineering and planned obsolescence. Spend more, get something that will last.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk. Line won't feed properly, wasting time, money, effort. I've owned many brands of trimmers over thirty years of home ownership. This is the WORST trimmer I've ever had the misfortune to purchase. While it has lots of power, it has a serious engineering design flaw. As others have pointed out, the line feed mechanism does not work properly. I have tried every type of standard manufacturer line and/or replacement option possible (including heavy-duty commercial lines). Even so, I'm lucky if I get five feet of trimming done before it breaks and I have to waste several minutes to pull off the spool, rewind the line, and re-install. A twenty minute job has taken an hour or more of frustration. Adding to the aggravation and cost, it's taken an entire spool of line to trim my average-size 5,000 square foot yard. This product NEVER should have gotten out of R&D.
