does this cut with 2 lines or just one.

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.

Can you use any .080 style line with the unit?

.080 round line is getting hard to get. Can you use .080 triangle or six bladed line with it?
Asked by: Jay906
Yes, and you should use only round .080 line. The link below shows the type of line you should use from Home Depot.

7.5 Amp 14 in. Curved Shaft High Performance String Trimmer is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 208.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from LINE HOG NOT Grass Hog I own a Toro line trimmer that was giving me fits with line breakage and having to rewind the spool all the time. I looked at a number of electric trimmers and landed on the GH3000. However, many of the reviews indicated that it was a LINE HOG. So, I did some research and found a way to significantly reduce this problem. I really like this trimmer as the motor is in the handle and, with the right type of line, does my yard with less than a yard of trimmer line. I recommend this to anyone who has a moderate size yard but want a more powerful trimmer... using the trimmer line I found that works. The link below will detail the type of line you need to purchase at Home Depot to save you time and money

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only one you need. If you're a home owner with an average sized yard, this is the only string trimmer you'll need. Get rid of that troublesome gas powered trimmer and buy this. The 7.5 amp motor provides plenty of power for the average yard. The wheel on the bottom is a great idea as is the adjustable function to go from sidewalk edging to weed whacking. The automatic feed works about 90% of the time. Occasionally you have to stop and manually feed the string out. That's my only problem with this. This is a great product in my opinion. I'll never go back to unreliable gas trimmers.

Not worth the price. This is the second Black & Decker item I've gotten in the last 2 years that was junk. The other item was their Jig-Saw. As everyone has stated, it doesn't automatically feed the line. You use 2-3 spools at a time. The last time I used it the shat on the Spool housing broke off. Have fun trying to locate the part at Home Depot. You won't Black & Decker used to make good, quality equipment. Not anymore. Don't waste you money on anything they make!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money on this. Line auto feeder is biggest problem - doesn't work. Mine worked... Don't waste your money on this. Line auto feeder is biggest problem - doesn't work. Mine worked fine when I first bought it and even after I changed to line spool it worked fine but the second time I changed the line spool the auto feeder stopped working. You literally have to remove the top and manually pull out new line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! My two cents...I read all the reviews and still bought one thinking that I could always return it. True B&D has lost it's quality luster over the years but "bang for the buck" this is one powerful hand held unit. The "extreme amount of line usage" does not exist with my unit. One thing that tipped me off to dealing with this problem were three comments in reviews that kept popping up....1. that this is one powerful unit, 2.it used a lot of line (self feeding feature of the unit), & 3. recommendation from a few souls "Do not blip the throttle". Hold it wide open consistently. If you really think about it logically from a mechanical side - if it has all that torque and then you combine it with a self-feed feature, the trigger point for the "line feed" is the torque. By blipping the throttle you're defeating all the physics engineered into the process and it causes it to bypass the normal torque loads encountered spiking it and forcing it to spool out more line. I used mine (no blipping), for two hours in 18" weeds and I still have over half the spool left. I think the "non-blipping" warning from previous users is pretty solid. This is one great unit. It devours weeds.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 7.5 AMP 14" Trimmer The trimmer works very well. It is light weight, durable, good line, and a nice retractable shaft.
Date published: 2016-09-27
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money Line feed issues right out of the box with less than 1/4 of the factory included spool of line used. What should have been a 10 minute job became a fight loading and reloading the line spool. Tossed it straight to the curb for trash pickup, as it turns out replacement spools are expensive ~9-10 bucks and bulk .080 line is difficult to find in my area. My advice, spend a little more for a higher quality trimmer.
