Hey Jay906,
USE ONLY .080 inch (2.0 mm) DIAMETER ROUND NYLON MONO FILAMENT LINE. Do not use serrated or heavier gauge line, as they will overload the motor and cause overheating.

Answer: 
Hi Jay906.
Thank you for your question.
The manufacturer specs call for a .80 line. It does not mater if it is triangle or round, as long as it is a .80 line. The thicker the line, the heavier it is.
It is the weight that is the issue. The .80 triangular line should work just fine.

your owner's manual give two line sizes. On page 26 in Spanish, it says to use a .065 line. On the front page in English, it says to use a .080 line. Could you please clear this up?

Answer: 
Your model GH 3000 uses the .080 line or the SF 080 spool.
The .065 line and the AF 100 spool on the Spanish page is a typo. Neither are listed for your trimmer.

I use .080 line and it works fine. Except for when the cutter cuts a piece of line off and it flys into my leg and takes a chunk out of my calf.

Answer: 
If you have fuses in your home, you may want to consider having an electrician changing to breakers! Many insurance companies require it.
Breakers reset by turning them off, then on. When they trip, they appear in the half way position.The blown fuse (or tripped circuit breaker) usually shuts off other things in the house too. Look for a tripped GFCI receptacle in that circuit and press reset button.

Look for a tripped GFCI receptacle in that circuit and press reset button. GFCI circuits trip with faults to ground. Laying a cord in wet areas can produce this situation.
Check the cord length chart in manual, this will avoid overheating and burning out the motor. Black and Decker recommends having the trimmer serviced by an authorized service center. Check the cord first. .

Answer: 
Hi swainer,
This Black & Decker GH3000 does not have an on board fuse.
You may have tripped a GFCI breaker in your home. Test the unit in another power source.
If your unit failed during the warranty period, simply return it to the place of purchase for a replacement.
I'm sorry that you experienced this problem.
Thank you for visiting our site.

Answer: 
Hi Joe, My trimmer only lasted 10 minutes before the cap broke. I questioned B&D as to changing to nylon instead of ABS plastic. I went and bought a Stihl electric instead for twice the money, and don't regret it! Go and get a real trimmer and give up on cheap junk!

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 133 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Trimmer Works better than the one that I had but is heavy. May 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome! I highly recommend this trimmer. I have a gas powered one that was a pain to keep running. This this is like a dream to use. Highly reccomend this. May 10, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Automatic String Feeder requires frequent intervention Rugged, well-made, simple, easy to flip between edger and trimmer. I like using it as an edger. But automatic feeder doesn't work. In the beginning, it wouldn't release line; I kept having to disassemble, let some line out, and reassemble. I called B&D and they sent me a replacement cover. Then it started working great for a couple of months. But then it started feeding an entire spool per trimming (and I don't have a large yard). Last week my wife had to trim, and she was carrying wire cutters to get the job done when it fed too much. Now, it feeds so much line that it become tangled. It finally wrapped the line around and around under the motor and killed itself. September 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Trimmer Review This is a very nice Trimmer. I have used it for 2 months and it works fine. No Issues. November 28, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Useless without a reliable line feed Used one time. Great power and features. But like many other reviewers, I had problems with the line feed. I figure it is hit or miss on getting a good unit and I got a bad one. I called tech support and after describing the problem, they recommended returning it to the retailer with no other suggestion. Will do. I'm guessing this is such a common problem resulting from a poor line feed design, they just have customers return it. IF the line feed worked, this could be a great trimmer. November 10, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Very mediocre product This string trimmer is a major step down from previous generation B&D string trimmers. The lever for changing from edging to trimming is awkward and a hassle to use. The single strand string spool is poorly constructed and this thing goes through string very, very quickly. I think they put the wheel on to help people make a controlled edge along their lawn. In reality, the wheel is worthless and gets in the way. Hint: making a nice edge requires practice and a bit of care. The wheel doesn't affect either one of those criteria. In short, this product is relatively inexpensive compared with gas powered trimmers. The problem is that it is nowhere near as good at it's job compared to the gas models. I've just about had it with buying string like there is no tomorrow for this thing and I am likely to break down and spend the bucks for a gas trimmer. October 18, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by excellent product Due to the motor being located at the top a better balance has been achieved. The other plus to the motor location is the safety when working in wet areas. The head design for the trimmer spool is much better than any I've experienced with previous products I've owned. With the fuel quality we have today, this is the way to go for ones personal residence, as only a 100' power cord is required. October 20, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Value, Good for B&D product This unit replaced my old B&D dual string weed whacker. Was having significant trouble getting line to feed on old unit; followed manual instructions but feeder was cheap and worn out. This new unit feeds much better and feels very light in the hands. Cuts through grass, weeds and ankles with ease, although not all when used properly. May 14, 2014
