Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HawaiiYardGuy Best Trimmer Add-on Ever!
I don't usually write product reviews, but after using the Pivot Trim on my Ryoby 10 Amp electric trimmer, I'm really impressed with the product. Prior to replacing the standard string trimmer that comes with the Ryobi, I had to constantly change the nylon string literally ever few minutes because it would break on the sidewalk slab or hollow tile walls. Now, I can trim my yard 3 to 4 times before I have to change the string on the Pivot Trim.
I would highly recommend this to anyone and actually would suggest that Ryobi replace their standard string head with a Pivot Trim as a standard part of their product.

I bought one of these to put on my new Echo trimmer because I'd seen it advertised and was enticed at $20. I must say, I am very happy I bought this. The line holds up better than it does in a standard "bump" head because it pivots (it will still go fast if you bump it into a lot of not-grass stuff, like fencing or sidewalk), but the real benefit is that it's much easier/quicker to replace the line. The branded replacement line is ridiculously expensive though...save yourself some money and just buy the 250ft rolls for like $12 and cut it to length when you need it (12.5").

Installation on my Weedeater straight shaft was a snap, easier than I feared considering all the extra parts that came along with the product. I was tired of consistently jammed lines. I have just used the product for the first time on a big job - I had let my backyard "go" because my Weedeater was impossible to work with its jamming problem. No problem now. I used up about 25% of each of the two lines, so I've easily got enough for a second go-around before changing lines. Considering how rediculously easy it is to replace them and the low cost, I wouldn't mind if I had to change them each time....I can finally use my trimmer again!

This is the second pivot head I bought. It works very well for me. The first one I had just happened to wear our from keeping it on the ground when I trim. I.e. Driveway or sidewalk. I always hated the bump and feed heads. They never work right and murder to reload. With this head you cut four pieces to about 8 inches and you're good to go. I try to cut a few ahead, just so that my stop time isn't too long. That being said this really is a great trimmer head. Easy to use and convenient.

BOUGHT THIS ITEM A FEW YEARS AGO TO REPLACE THE BUMP HEAD ON MY STIHL TRIMMER. IT KEPT BREAKING STRING OR JAMBING. REPLACED IT WITH PIVOTRIM X4 TRIMMER HEAD AND LOVED IT. I CAN TRIM MY YARD AT LEAST 2 OR 3 TIMES WITHOUT REPLACING THE STRING. JUST BOUGHT A NEW ONE BECAUSE THE OLDER ONE WAS WEARING OUT.

I picked up one of these RinoTuff Pivotrim heads at my local home depot store. I thought the design looked interesting the way the lines can swing around. But , I never thought I would trim my whole yard with one set of lines! I've got a lot of fencing and I am constantly fighting with my trimmer head because the line breaks off all the time. With this PivoTrim head I can get right up next to my fence and the line doesn't break. It's really easy to load the lines on, but who cares if you don't have to change it much anyway!
Anyone whose got a gas trimmer needs one of these things!

The title sums it up. Finally, Ryobi makes a corded electric trimmer that can be fitted with the Pivotrim. I assume the reason the Pivotrim can't be used with most electric trimmers is because the motors are at the bottom of the electric trimmers and the spool heads are proprietary designed whilst the gas trimmer ends are more universal? Who knows. Anyway, I have about 150 feet of chain link fence and I've trimmed it about 2 times and so far, no broken strings. WOW! Previously with my other trimmer, I stopped about every 2 feet and spent over an hour just trying to feed the line correctly - no fun. Now it's a quick 5 minutes to trim and maybe another 10 to deal with the cord. I'm liking it so far and hopefully years of "trimmer's frustration" will melt away. Actually, this has totally changed my life, I used to dread trimming but now it's fun and almost too EZ! And what will I do with all these extra hours of freedom....

I was skeptical at first but was able to do my whole lawn without changing twine and it looks like there's enough fresh twine to do it all over again. Easily cut through fresh root shoots as well as general weedeating and trimming. I suppose in this case eight is better than two! Installed on a standard Ryobi gas weedeater.
