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: 
it just does not feed. I have used the replacement string I bought and wound the string on correctly and in the correct direction. I wound the string using a normal amount of tension as I wound it carefully.
the spring will not release so the string will not feed. btw fire you engineer! even I could do a much better job. and no I am retired

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!

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 169 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by When it's good It's good enough. But it spends most of its time spinning 3 inches of string not 14, which means you change your angle of approach and fling up dirt and little stones etc. This is painful on my uneven colonial brick patio and walkways. Definitely need full regalia including safety glasses. Seems like the string dispenses better if it gets a bigger stalk than spotted spurge to engage with. If I were paying for pre-rolled string I would really be unhappy, and broke! When the trimmer's secret parameters are all met it does an adequate job, but I'd try something else next time. Delivery by Home Depot took I recall 3 days and I'm glad to see this option is available as brick and mortar needs to stay in the game! July 18, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Get an upgrade or another brand It balances good, it's easy to use and quick to adjust as needed. A huge drawback for me is the self-feeding line. Don't buy unless your willing to invest in buying a lot of line. It self feeds almost constantly. I can't finish my front lawn without respooling again. July 21, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A very good choice The unit was easily assembled and ready to work although the cor became stuck a few time no doubt due to poor installation. Otherwise everything was fine. July 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great! I have used it only twice since I purchased it. The first time it worked good and I did mostly trimming with it. The second use I edged the entire lawn and my flower beds which are separated by black plastic roll edging. It was so easy to go along the border. I was so surprised. Someone mentioned it was difficult to flip from trimmer to edger. This senior female found it easy. I did not have to pay attention to the line being let out. It just kept working. I thought it was a little heavy. Also surprised it is just about all plastic, but I guess most things are these days. I did not as yet have to remove the line holder so the difficulty getting that on and off may change my review but so far very good. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very good vale for the money Very easy to handle and put together (minimal effort) Works well. Cuts well. 7.5 makes a difference. July 19, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LASTED ONLY ONE SUMMER this product is not reliable.I used it a few times during spring and summer and that was it, itjust stopped working. I will neverpurchase black and decker products. July 20, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DO NOT BUY THIS !!! This is the worst trimmer I have ever bought and used in my life. Today I finally blew my fuse and destroyed this piece of junk. The replacement string will not feed! I've worked hours trying to get it to work no luck. I complained to Black and Decker a few months ago and they sent me more string rolls and another feed head. it worked good for a few hours, then back to not working. Folks can only stand failure for what they have spent their money on before they revolt. Did I forget to say this was made in China? Oh, and you can not find the string rolls for this trimmer at Home depot, Lowes, Ace Hardware, or even Walmart, but you can find the replacement string at an elevated price. Home Depot please remove this workless produce from you shelves and people do not waste your money on this. I will never knowingly buy a Black and Decker product again. oh, and Black and Decker DO NOT send me a replacement. July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NUMBER ONE IN MY YARD OUT-OF-THE-BOX, ONE SCREW AND PUT ON THE HANDLE. THIS STRING TRIMMER IS GREAT IN MY HUMBLE OPINION. DID BOTH FRONT AND BACK YARDS WITH ONE SPOOL OF .080 LINE. THIS WAS A TREMENDOUS IMPROVEMENT OVER MY GAS TRIMMER AND EVEN MY 18V B & D TRIMMER. MY GAS TRIMMER STARTED GREAT BUT HAD TO MANUALLY LET OUT LINE EVERY FEW MINUTES. MY 18V B & D DID A LITTLE BETTER ON LINE FEED, BUT EVEN WITH 2 BATTERIES COULD NOT CUT FRONT YARD. THIS 7.5 IS POWER AT ITS BEST. LINE FEED WORKED PRETTY GOOD BUT IT SEEMED TO FEED LINE WHENEVER IT WANTED TO. WHAT A PLEASURE (IN 90 DEGREE TEMP) TO GET FRONT AND BACK DONE HARDLY WITHOUT STOPPING. PREVIOUS SUMMARIES STATE THAT A DIFFERENT STRING RELOADED MIGHT WORK BETTER. THIS IS FIRST PURCHASE IN A LONG TIME THAT LEAVES ME COMPLETELY SATISFIED. PUT WHEEL AGAINST WOOD FENCE AND EDGED OR TRIMMED WITH EASE. July 2, 2016
