Had this on the trimmer for a couple seasons. Easy to use instead of winding. Now, however, after loading, the string just flies out. It won't budge when I pull on it, start it up and a couple second later it's on the grass. W-D's the inside grippers, but didn't help. Great product when it worked. PS You cut your own string to length from the spool - don't get ripped off buying the pre-cut!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JulyJunker Best quick load IF you use it right
Dis regard the other negative reviews. Load this with 0.095 or better line and get your work done. Of course smaller line breaks fast.
1/2 acre lot, normal fence line and hedges, changed out the line maybe four times
Only real con is that it's heavy duty. Meaning if you put this on a Homelight, you are gonna kill your motor.

Terrible design! You can't go 10ft edging the house without the line needing to be placed. Took this off and had to put the original head back on. Was really hoping this would work...

The string barely lasts a few minutes before you need to add more. I'm looking to replace the head on our Echo with a traditional string head.

The packaged had been opened and the fitting I needed was missing. I took it back and the other four packages were opened as well and I did not want to take to the chance to but it and went to another store.

Absolutely the best trimmer head in the market. Very fast loading with pre-cut line. The best part it fits all line diameter sizes for heavy gauge line. I have had one for 8 years. I'm just now replacing it. Glad I found it again!

This item frustrates me intensely. There is noting "rapid" about it. It consists of a spool and two lengths of string that the user inserts into the spool each time the string breaks. Guess how often the string breaks? All the time! So you are constantly stopping, pulling out pliers, pulling the string out, and replacing the length of string. Guess how much the replacement string is? $8.00 for a smallish package. I have a 5 year old Weed Eater with power cord and auto feeder that works MUCH better. I bought this model so I wouldn't have to use extension cords, but this rapid feeder is awful. Now I'm in search of a different type of trimmer head. DON'T buy this one. Don't waste the money.
