Answer: 
If you read the manual you will see that you use a normal outdoor extension cord. Just make sure that the cord you choose has just a single plug on the end.

Answer: 
Yes it is sold separately. You need about a 50' or 100' extension cord depending on the space you want to decrease weeds or grass. I have a 100' cord and it works all around my house.

Great questions, Rick. To answer your question, this string trimmer is intended for light duty use in trimming grass. For weeds and heavy brush, we recommend using a brush cutter.

Answer: 
Be aware that the string advance mechanism will just stop working at some point and you'll have to take the head apart to advance the line manually. I wish I'd purchased the type you tap on the ground to advance.

When replacing line on the spool, Which way should it be wound? Clockwise or counter-clockwise?
In the manual, the instructions says 'counter-clockwise' and references diagram #15 that says 'clockwise'.
This is confusing. Is one line clockwise and the other counter-clockwise?

Thank you, Tommy. Please refer to your operator's manual for the instructions on how to reload the spool. To answer your question, you should wind the spool counter clockwise. I hope this helps.

Rated 3.0 out of 5 by 185 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent trimmer Other than the limitation of it being electric, this trimmer does a great job, string is easy to replace. It is light enough that my arms aren't killing me when I am done. This is a awesome trimmer at a great price! August 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great so you don't have to I replaced my old electric trimmer that had died. This unit reduced the time I needed to trim the same area and the edger guide made all the difference. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent trimmer I just ordered another electric Home Lite trimmer and spool package because my old one finally fell apart after five years of weekly use in three seasons.. Easy to use for trimming grass along the fence line & around planted areas. I especially like it to trim neatly around my rosebushes. The pre-wound spools are easy for me to replace on the trimmer. I brush it clean after each use & keep it along with the mower & electric cable inside my screened porch. With all the weather changes here in Missouri, I think my tools last longer simply because I protect them from the weather, besides cleaning & oiling them. July 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect for my small yard! The trimmer is lightweight and very easy to assemble and use. August 17, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by You get what you pay for Lightweight, but being electric makes needing a cord (or 2 or 3) a pain for large yards. Got mine last spring as a backup for our gas powered trimmer and used it once before storing for the winter. Pulled it out to use it and now I know why my hubby has let our edges get a foot tall. It has serious issues with letting line out. The 'automatic feed' doesn't work as advertised making it so you have to stop, take apart, re spool line (it unravels very easily), feed through hole, put back together quite often trim for 3 minutes and repeat. Needless to say, I'm going to drop it off at the donation box. At least it was only $30 down the hole. Hopefully the future owner has more patience than I do. July 5, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not the bargain that I was looking for. I was looking for a low cost trimmer when selecting this one. That's exactly what I received. I am reminded of the old adage that "you get what your pay for." The trimmer performed fairly well for one year. Used it to edge lawns, trim around deck, trim around rose bushes, etc. I had to be extremely careful around rose bushes as it had no guard against beating up the trunks. Otherwise it performed fairly well. My complaint is that it ceased to function after about 10-12 months. I tried connecting it to several different electrical outlets to no avail. The on/off switch seems to be broken internally. June 27, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by IT'S A GREAT VALUE Lightweight, great for the price. It's the 3rd one I purchase. August 12, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good trimmer So far so good. I have had my trimmer for a short time and have only used it one time. Performed as expected. August 9, 2016
