Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tangy2 Much better than the OEM replacement head.
Replaced the trimmer head on my gas trimmer and what a relief to find it was finally working the way it was intended to work. The strings did not wear down as quickly and the kit came with replacement strings and a set off trimmer blades. Easy to assemble and works much better than the trimmer head from the Original Equipment Manufacturer. Indeed a valuable and durable product. Thank you very much.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by enginerd Get this head for your 40V Trimmer
I swapped out the stock head on my 40V string trimmer with this. I should have done this as soon as I got the trimmer instead of wasting a year with the stock head. The trimmer can't swing the thicker strings as fast as the far thinner stock strings, but it doesn't seem to matter. I was able to trim 100 feet of fence line without stopping to adjust the line. Also, even though the head seems to spin slower, it is more effective and cutting grass and thick weeds. I was also able to turn the trimmer on its side and edge, but the thick lines leave a very wide path of destruction. If you want a head that can edge neatly, look elsewhere.

This thing is just amazing..I went in looking for the pro model ( so i can use.105 line). They didn't have it so salesman recommended this....showed me .105 goes through holes and made sure i was all set.....SUPER EXCITED I raced home to wage war upon those pesky weeds that i jad neglected for 3 weeks( I live in the way out country so whipping weeds is serious business). Took me all of 10 minutes to put this head on....most of that time was spent finding the darn head pin that came with my troy bilt 29cc that had fallen behind my shelf last yr......put in the .095 pre cuts that came with it.....made it 3/4 of the way through all my weed war....replaced the strings ising last of the pre cuts.....and finished up....love it so far....and its a beast

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kreg Great Product
Get this attachment!!! it goes on easily and works extremely well. switching from line to blades is a snap, just push a button on the bottom and it slides right in. It works so much better than the standard feed line than most weed eaters come with. I have an echo straight shaft trimmer and I'm kind of mad I went for as long as I did without this head. Even if i bought a brand new trimmer I would get one of these to go with it.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Fernbark Does not fit Ryobi Expand-It trimmers
I have a Ryobi Expand-It trimmer. The Pivotrim hybrid does not have a fastener that fits this trimmer in the package. I was able to make an old fastener work and test the unit. The three string trimmer is easy to load and lasts a long time on the very heavy string that comes with it. If you have a trimmer that is compatible with the Pivotrim, it is a breeze to install. If you have a trimmer that does not have any moving parts exposed to the trimmer other than the string, it works good. My experience with the brush cutting blades was not good because the trimmer kept catching a lot of grass (both gas and electric powered). I have used other products that work as well or better than this unit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mrd75 Nice product
This is a product that I wanted to buy for a long time. It covers 99 percent of gas trimmers. I fall in the 1 percent that it does work on. I will try to contact the company and see if there is a solution to my problem. Hoping for the best because I would love to use this item. It has both string and blades for cutting light brush. It is easy to assemble.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by doug looks like this will be about the best $30 ive ever spent
So sick of having to stop and fix the string every 2 minutes. almost gave up on weed eater but saw this and decided to give it a try. Took a few minutes to get the head on, had to get a few extra washers to take the gap out between the head and the nut. (using a homelite 26 cc weed eater) once I got it on good and tight I put the plastic blades on ( very easy to do) and fired it up.Tried it on a brushy area of my yard with a chain lick fence around it. It went around the fence without a problem, even took down some very small saplings. Did not have to stop and fix string which to me is very frustrating. Don't know how long the blades will last but they still look new after this small area (10x15) of brush. looking forward to using without having 2 feet of string ripped out when using next to a chain link fence or a brushy area. looks like it will cut saplings about 1/4 inch thick but may break the blades. Anyway so far I am very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Glad I waited fr this one.
I almost bought two or three different trimmer heads last year but, they all seemed cheaply made.The PIVOTRIM HYBRID is very well made. Heavy Duty all the way. It bolted right on my 20 year old Commercial Homelite gas trimmer. I really like the ease of putting on the .095 cutting line. Good product.
