This question is from 12 in. 24-Volt Lithium-Ion Shaft Trimmer and Edger

I have a 51486 cordless edger which just had the spool spinner separate and come off. I looked on Toro's website and cannot find a replacement part and every other site I check says they are obsolete. I have a very nice edger that will not work as the spool spinner plate that holds in the spool is broken. So I either end up finding one, or I buy a Toro that is compatible with my charger and battery or find an completely different edger.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 29 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Expected better from Toro The trimmer works fine and as expected. The edger is almost worthless-it is difficult to clearly see where you are cutting; the wire advances erractically and often must be advanced by hand; the wobble also mentioned by others is annoying. Even tho this is a moderately priced item I expected better from Toro. Home Depot provides great service and response to customers-my concern here is not with them. May 27, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Love the cordless extended battery; hate the head-wobble in Edger mode. Toro Model 51487 Edger/Trimmer, Cordless: In Trimmer mode, the Toro 51487 cutting head is firmly attached to the pole and does not wobble. You can easily cut a straight, level surface. However, in the Edging mode (head rotated 90-degrees), the Toro 51487 head wobbles on the pole making it impossible to cut a crisp, straight edge. Instead you get a ragged, uneven edge. If anyone has found any way to tighten the head and prevent the wobble in Edger mode, there are many people who would greatly appreciate learning how to fix or mod the Toro 51487 Edger/Trimmer. The previous model, Toro Model 51486, did not have the wobble problem. It may have been a higher quality construction. September 5, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Really, Toro?!! Well, as I always do, I read the instructions carefully. Put it all together and went outside to do some simple trimming. Things were great... for three (yes, 3) minutes... ... and then it quit. Just quit. Died. Dead. Non functioning. Hmmm... well, I have another fully charged battery. Nope. Kaput! Finished! Lights out! I also bought the hedge trimmer but haven't tried it out. Won't, either. It will also be returned. If the Toro trimmer only lasted 3 minutes, what hope do I have that either product will last more than a year. Sorry, Toro... I gave it a shot and you let me down. (this is in no way a reflection on the wonderful service that I have received from Home Depot) May 19, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Design I really like the trimmer; the ease of use, light weight, and design. The one thing that is troubling is the looseness in the power head when trimming. It seems to be tighter in the edging position. September 24, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not Actually Made By Toro This unit worked well for one season. After that it quit on me. I took to to the local Toro dealer. The guy at Toro informed me that the trimmer is actually made by someone else and Toro kindly puts their name on it. He couldn't look at it because he wouldn't be able to get parts for it. Took it to an electric motor shop who informed me the battery is the problem. A new battery is expensive to replace. I have been advised to purchase a Stihl gas powered trimmer. My advice is to not put any weight behind the reviews who have not had the unit for less than a year or two. July 22, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Trimmer will not turn stuck on shaft Trimmer will not turn, stuck on shaft. While using edger mode, trimmer seized and would not turn. Now a useless piece of JUNK. August 25, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by This Trimmer/Edger More Than Expected This trimmer/edger performs very well. No hassle as compared with my gas trimmer. This product works well as an edger. Our yard is not that big so the run time on the battery is more than enough. My wife has used this product and finds it to be user friendly. So far this product overall has been better than expected. June 30, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by This unit works great.I have had it for a couple of months. I originally bought a Ryobi but took it back as the charge only lasted 15 minutes and was not enough to do my yard (20 minutes) This one shows 50% still available after the 20 minute job. My only knock is that it is awkward loading the battery into the unit and into the charger, otherwise I would give it 5 stars. I am now considering the new hedge trimmer as I think I could swap batteries between units as my hedge is over an hour job and probably needs 2 batteries to get through it. May 23, 2013
