Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WallyS works well
I bought this for a 4 stroke walk behind. In order to install it, I had to call the help line, because it was a little different than the illustrations. I am glad I did before giving up. I had problems with the walk behind eating through a lot of string (.105), even though it worked well. With this, I am using a lot less string (.095), and able to cut closer, because I am not using the bottom ball that was part of the original.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fisherman I should have had this installed on day 1.
I installed the pivottrim on my Ryobi 4-cycle to replace the tap-to-feed system. I wish I would have put this on from the start. The 6 cutting strings easily trim my whole property without needing replaced.

Installation is easy and straight forward. Changing lines is so much easier.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by tsg2808 Does not fit Stihl
This does not fit a Stihl trimmer, even though the package says it does. I could not get it on my trimmer, so I called the company. The woman I talked to said no, it does not fit a Stihl. I asked her why it said it did on the package, and she had no answer to that. She told me to return it to the company and she would issue a refund.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by blackcat a great improvement
this was a huge upgrade and replacement for the the pain in the -- winding one which keeps needing
un-winding. Istead of 2 strands it now has 6, and replacing them is easy. a must have if you use your weedeater.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CS One of the better trimmer products I've used
I have a Stihl FS130R gas trimmer. The trimmer is fantastic with the exception of winding the line on to the spool. Also, I live in an area with a lot of rocks. I've had a difficult time finding line that will last.
On a whim I purchased the Rino-Tuff Pivotrim Hybrid replacement trimmer head and Rino-Tuff .095 line in the 250' roll.
Installation of the Pivotrim on my trimmer took about 2 mins. The directions were clear, well illustrated and easy to follow. Everything I needed for install was included in the package. The Hybrid package even includes 3 plastic blades. I have not tried the blades yet.
The pre-cut line was a little short for my trimmer. But, that's no problem. I just cut longer lengths from the spool of replacement line and that minor problem was solved.
The Pivotrim works fine. There really isn't much else to say about it. What impressed me most was the line. It's far more durable than most others I've tried. It's hard to say how much that's due to the quality of the line and how much is due to the way the line pivots on the attach points.
I was able to quickly break the line by trimming very close to the edge of a sidewalk. However, by running the trimmer at a slow speed and being just a bit careful trimming the edge of the patio/sidewalk and around numerous rocks I was able to make the line last far longer than I've been able to with other types of line.
I only replaced line once during a 2+ hour trimming session on our north Idaho property. Granted, at the end the line needed to be replaced but it was usable til the end.
For the money, this replacement trimmer head seems to be a pretty good deal. I definitely recommend it.

Working well with monofilament. My son went through the blades in a heartbeat, however :(
Confusing install but after re-reading the directions a few times, we got this to work well.
