Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good trimmer One complaint is adding new line. After struggling to get it in without line springing loose, if not precisely the correct length it wraps around the spindle locking it up. The auto line trim blade does not work well. I spend a lot of time reloading the line and finally trimming it with scissors or a knife. It runs strong, takes only 2-3 pulls to start and works well on most trimming tasks. Maybe it's just me, but I can't get it to stay in idle. Might be the fuel mix as I am just not very good at that stuff. A little hard on the back but that is true with all string trimmers for my bad back. July 2, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gets the job done! I am a single mother and I needed this to help with the yard duties. After reading reviews I decided on this and glad I did. It works great, not entirely heavy and I can even use attachments with it like a blower, and edger attachment. I'm still getting use to it, but it's not hard even for someone who hasn't cut grass before and is of a short stature. June 24, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Okay for light work I have made do with these weedwacker but it is definitely not the best for thick or tough jobs because the thick/strong type of line will not fit. Also it is more of a task to change line than other models namely Echo. I would recommend spending the extra money for an echo instead of spending so much time fiddling with this one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great trimmer for the price! I've used my Toro trimmer for three months and so far it has met all my expectations. It replaced a 10-12 year old Ryobi that had become hard to start and would not idle without going dead. The Toro starts everytime on two pulls, just follow the starting instructions, and idles fine. It is light weight and easy to manage. I use the optional shoulder strap. All my Ryobi attachments work, too. The Toro has plenty of power for all my needs. I trim two yards (about 1 1/2 acres total) and use a brushcutter and tree pruner attachments for cutting heavy weeds and briars and small tree limbs. I only wish I had purchased the Toro trimmer sooner. May 28, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Trimmer - One Drawback I had an ECHO Trimmer in the past and thought I would give this a try because it was significantly cheaper and it has the ability to be used with aftermarket attachments which makes it more versitile. It did not dissapoint, I noticed the bump line feed works much better then the ECHO models. Also the quality of the line itself seems to also hold up to use better. One drawback I noted is that the handle mounted to the shaft does not have adjustment screws so you can loosen it to change the handle position when holding the tool on its side as would need to on sidewalk edging. I plan to adapt the screws for the handle myself to take care of the issue using wing nuts and longer screws. Not a huge deal. This is a solid purchase. Starts right up if you follow the directions provided. May 21, 2013
