Works well, loads easy. If you snag on something the line will get pulled out on one end throwing the whole head out of balance but as long as you avoid getting the line caught you should be fine. I bought this for the ECHO PAS-225 because I don't like the bulk and hassle of the factory auto feed heads. I would have stuck with the "Shakespeare Push-N-Load Trim Head" I use on the larger ECHO PAS-266 but the engine was just too small on the ECHO PAS-225 to handle the extra line unless you cut it very short.

For light duty trimming is good. But if you have to used on a regularly, every week, you might find that it does not work as well as advertised. The line will jam inside and needs to be taken apart to clear it. This adds time to your work.

Anyone who has used a bump trimmer and tried to advance line knows how frustrating it can be. Bumping to feed line never worked for me. I found this item online after researching how to properly load a bump trimmer head. I used it to replace my gas powered Ryobi trimmer head. I went through 4 pieces of line because I used it against the concrete driveway and along the sides of my house. I noticed that when I used it around my flower beds, the line did not diminish as quickly as when I used it against the concrete. Since reloading is a snap, I was able to get the edging done quickly and without frustration. I only wish that I had found this type of trimmer head sooner. Where has this thing been all my life? I look forward to a happy, long relationship.

I find that I need to feed more line and this head requires that I stop each time I run out of line. If you are expert and never need to feed line, then this is for you. Otherwise, get one that will feed the line out.

I have a Weedeater featherlite 25cc. The head of my Weedeater broke, so I decide to take a risk on buying the Rino push-n-load 2-line trimmer head. To my amazment , the instaltion procces was fast and easy! Once I got my weed eater going, I put the rino push-n-load to use. The only thing I can say about this product is "WOW"! It surppased my expectations! It was very easy to load once my line ran out. The head is made out of very strong plastic and it will stand against concrete and any chain link fence. I look forward to put this bad boy to use for a long time.

I bought a used Homelite 26cs Weedeater for cheap at a local garage sale sans the bump head. All the machine needed was a replacement bump head. The Push-N-Load 2-Line Trimmer Head fit the bill quite nicely. Fitment was fair. However I did have to supply 3 ea. spacer washers to snug up the fitment somewhat. This shimming was thoroughly explained in the excellent instructions. Works very well for a UNIVERSAL replacement. Smooth running No out of balance vibration felt. Easy line replacement.

I bought this to replace a 3-prong head on my father's weedeater. He has a Weedeater Featherlite & it was just too underpowered to support the larger mass of the 3 prong head, making it shut off every time it bumped something. Obviously bumping something happens a lot while weedeating, so it was very frustrating. Installation of this product was easy enough (though the process was different for this weedeater than on either set of included directions) & it's held up well through 2 uses - you'd never know it wasn't the original head.
The included line didn't seem to hold up very well though. My dad went through 4-5 of the included strips on the first use b/c weedeating around fences & concrete shredded them pretty quickly. I'm hoping a thicker gauge line will improve the line life a little. Either way, it's still better than having to restart the weedeater every couple of minutes & for people with fewer obstacles (and perhaps a less aggressive approach to weedeating), it should be fine. It's much easier to just push a button & feed a strip through than respooling a self-feeding head!
