This is exactly what I expected as I had read the other reviews and I had a similar head on another weed trimmer. Love the attachment as the head stops spinning while the motor is idling as my other machine did not and always had to turn machine off to change out the cords.
Two things that could be improved on this item.
1) The shaft of the trimmer near the head gets pretty hot during my 15 - 20 minutes of use
2) The grass guard needs to be about twice the size to really provide any protection
Besides those two things love the addition to my echo pas attachments

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MrGear Works like a charm
I needed a line-trimmer that would stand up to the demands of, not only, edging and clean-up; I needed a trimmer that could be used to keep the swail that cuts through my property neat and tidy. This trimmer head, combined with my PAS-266 does just that. I'll say that I was not impressed with the line segments that Echo provided, in truth they only made it a couple of feet before they failed; but once I picked up a spool of higher quality line and cut the 8" sections myself I was able to cut through anything that didn't have a woody stem, and even some of those were lopped off if I took it slow and nibbled it down.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MikeS Great Addtion to This Line I Already Own
Performs well thusfar. If there is any kind of gripe I have it's that the directions are not exactly clear on how to put in or take out the line. I figured it out, but it took a bit of time in order to get it right and not break it. I would recommend using a thicker line. I'm using a thinner line only to use it up and it doesn't last long. But, it's not hard to replace; certainly easier than the stand-alone models. Just have to cut a roll of line into the right-sized pieces...unless you want to pay alot more by purchasing the line already cut into the 8" lengths.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wilson Ease of use
Excellent value-trims well with the 0.90mm line. The line is easy to change and wears well. The PAS system allows for ease of tool change out. Outstanding tool!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by VtGunner With Rapid Loader comes decreased work time.
I'm loving this trimmer. Time to do my yard is down by 10-15 minutes. Love the fact that it is not constantly spinning while the engine is running. Only when you give it the gas does it take off and start to do it's job.
The only downside to this purchase was the delivery time, it took nearly three weeks.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Frankum1998 Well worth the money
I started out with the curved shaft trimmer attachment and was very disappointed... The rapid Loader head would not hold any size or type of cord... I decided to up grade to the straight shaft attachment and it even came with a speed feed head on it. It is made more "commercial" and seems to be built to last compared to the curved shaft.. with the speed feed head you can load 12 ft. of cord in approx. 30 seconds.. dont waste your money on the curved shaft... spend the extra and get this attachment. It is well worth it.
