Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Brundlefly Somewhat disappointing
2 complaints: the EZ load head is a joke. I'm having to stop every 5-10 minutes to replace the strings, which this trimmer goes thru like crazy. Do yourself a favor and either buy a model that has the traditional bump feed head already, or go ahead and buy the replacement head for this model.
Second, it stalls out everytime I try to edge with it and there's no edger attachment available for this model. Should have done my research I guess. On the plus side, it starts very easily and trims just fine in between the frequent stops to replace string.

Satisfied with this trimmer after using it twice. Could not use it under the benches very well due to the curved shaft. Otherwise please with performance and weight.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jessica nice, light trimmer
very nice light easy to start trimmer I've used so far. Ididn'tcare much for the way the string loads only because it gets stuck in thehead & you need pliars to change it. other downfall wasthe curved shaft Iwas constantly reaching & it bothered myback. I havea lot of land so it was returned for a straight shaft. good for someone with little trimming needed

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bro Good for light duty applications
It's a good buy for light duty use, I've had no real problems with it so far. I finally gave up on trying to nurse my old Ryobi along and bought this one. I was looking for something a little more heavy duty but this one was the only model the local Home Depot had at the time. The short shaft is nice for around buildings, trees, bushes, etc. but becomes a pain working in areas where you need to reach. I'm not crazy about the head and replacing the individual lengths of line. When you use it near concrete/asphalt surfaces you go through a lot of string.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kyle Not Sure Yet
Seems to have decent power. It does get bogged down some with heavier/thicker grass and weeds. The concept of the self-feeding string is good, but it has not been perfected yet. I have gone through over 20 feet of string in less than half an hour. Any time the string hits something tough, it pulls more string out. There is a cutting blade that trims the string when it gets too long. So you lose string every time you utilize the trimmer. I purchased a replaceable trimmer head with fixed blade/string. Hopefully it works.

This is the best weed eater for the money. !st one I bought 9 years ago and I am just now having trouble with it so I bought another like it and I LOVE it. Easy to operate and light enough it doesn't hurt my arms to use it for an hour or more weed eating. Great quality product!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by John Inconvenient
This is a piece of junk. No clue how it gets a good rating. You use a 8" piece of cutting string that you feed through the holes. No Spool of string. The string breaks after 1 minute of use. After it breaks you have to stop, flip it over and pull the string through the middle to get the remainder small piece out before you feed a new piece from the outside in. It came with a bag of 10 and I used them all and only got half my trimming done. One of the holes you feed the string through is clogged and doesn't work.
Junk Junk Junk. I'm bring it back today.
