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.

The electric black and decker weed eater ( Grasshog) that I have now, which is discontinued, has dual (2) lines that cut. With 2 lines it does an above fantastic job of trimming and edging. Does this model have just one line to cut, or 2 lines that cut.

Just one, however, I really think it's worth a try. The 7.5 amps makes it very powerful so you may just be surprised.

Answer: 
This model is corded so no need to mess with expensive batteries.. I recommend at least a 16 gauge extension cord for this model. See the attached video for tips on how to use this trimmer/edger.

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.

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 181 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by weed trimmer easy to use Weed trimmer had small assembly and easy to do. I went for the bigger trimmer for the power in cutting and it does a great job. It's as powerful as a gas trimmer as I have had both, this cuts great. August 23, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great product for the money This weed eater seems to have power even with only 1 string. It helps to keep it running to save string although the auto feed is a little picky. Sometimes I have to throttle to get it to feed. I did a normal suburbs plot on bout 9 inches of string with edging. I do wish it was longer as I am 6ft 3. Overall I am very happy with it. August 30, 2016
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 5.0 out of 5.0 by amazing power After purchasing three other weed whackers, this one is the best. The motor is on the handle and doesn't get clogged with the wet grass like the other three I purchased. It is also very powerful. August 30, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not the performance I expected The good part is that the tool is easily assembled right out of the box. The not so good: handle is a bit too short for 6'4" person especially when edging. The automatic string feed is very hit and miss even though using factory wound spools. The extension cord retainer hook built into the handle does not hold onto the cord and falls out of the hook and unplugs from the trimmer. Had to make an extra loop thru the handle to keep cord in tool. There is no guard to save tree or plant contact. August 9, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't buy this B&D trimmer It is a single string and goes through whole spools three orfour times per use. I have had to replace the spool three times already because they split apart. I finally gave up and bought another brand. August 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great trimmer for the price! Having a smaller, square yard means I can reach it all with a cord, so I don't have to deal with an engine. I was hesitant about getting an electric trimmer, but I have enjoyed this one very much. It's occasionally tricky to get the line out, but if I just gun it a few times and then hold the trigger, it usually does well. Well worth the price! August 10, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very good Easy to operate and put together, very light and durable August 9, 2016
