Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by A Little Disappointing. I was disappointed with this Toro product, and I was borderline on whether to recommend this product or not. Pros: - It's a Toro, generally high quality and reliable, as I am hoping mine will demonstrate. - Engine starting - excellent, and excellent power and performance. - Easy out-of-the-box and almost no assembly (although with a problem attaching the handle - see below). Cons: - Heavy - very heavy. - I could not get the handle to secure properly and firmly to the bar. I tried numerous times. Finally I had to replace the wing nut provided with a hex nut and tighten with 2 extra washers and a wrench. The supplied wing nut was slipping, and it felt like plastic. Very strange. - The curved shaft I thought would make trimming easier - it does not. This is not a fault of Toro but with the heavy weight, and a curved shaft, it makes turning the shaft 180 degrees for edging very difficult. I was not terribly impressed with the unit's ability to trim grass. Edging was fine - perfect actually with plenty of RPMs to do the job. Perhaps I need to increase the RPM when just trimming grass. My last suggestion is: wear a full face mask - the plastic face shield type that you put on like a hat. As anyone that has used a trimmer before knows, small stones, sticks and other debris becomes airborne and it does occasionally hit you in the face. April 5, 2015
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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tremendous power Having a more expensive string trimmer before, I am pleased with this cheaper model that has noticeably more power. Although the directions on starting it are extremely vague in the amount of times to pull the cord to start it. April 26, 2015
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 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 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
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Good for about 1 season. I bought this trimmer last year. It worked well for about the first week I had it. After that it became very hard to start. Cold starts were fine, but it was impossible to start again after it got hot. When I put fuel in it a few weeks ago the fuel line was brittle and broke off inside the tank. I replaced the fuel line and it worked for about a week. Now it will not start at all. I decided to try repairing it myself because shipping it to their warranty repair center and back would cost almost half of what a new one costs. After researching online I found out that this toro is actually a homelite trimmer with a different color cover and stickers. So much for brand loyalty. April 1, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Bang for the Buck I purchased this trimmer to replace an Echo with the "quick change" line. I bought the Echo for easy starts, but the "quick change" line was a joke. I had to carry around a bag of replacement lines and tools to push the broken line out to get a new piece of line in each time it broke. I spent more time changing the line than trimming. This Toro trimmer is commercial grade (I have 2.5 acres), the line is thicker and lasts much longer, the tap and go line feed is much easier, it doesn't require tools if you should need to occassionally adjust the line, it's a lot more comfortable than my old Echo, and it's very easy to start. What took me 30 minutes with the Echo only takes me 5 minutes with the Toro and the price is less on the Toro! Good trimmer for the money. May 13, 2011
