Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lauren Easy to Use and Very Powerful Weed Eater
This is the third weed eater of this same exact model that I've gone through in five years. I use it twice a month sometimes for up to 8 hours at a time because I have lots of brick paths and edging to do. The motor does not burn up and remains quite powerful but they do wear out eventually. It takes lots of use and abuse and is tough enough for creating little canals at the edge of the yard for the water to go into instead of leaking onto the brick paths and for breaking up those tough little dirt mounds that accumulate when the wind blows and grass grows through. I love my trusty little weed eater and will keep ordering this model for as long as it's made. Great quality, easy to use, and great price. I hope it's never discontinued.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ChrystalD Great until the string ran out..
This was my first string trimmer purchase. The weight was good and the power was surprising. I used it all the time until the factory installed string ran out. I cannot get replacement string installed correctly. I referred to online directions and when all efforts of independence fail...Dad...and even he could not get the new string to work properly.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Snappytom Piece of junk.
The unit came out of the box with the head being loose in the shaft, had about a 1/4 inch play side to side. When I tried to use it the string wound around the motor shaft which left about an inch of line to use as the "trimming" length of the string. This unit is a piece of junk. It is absolutely useless.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Frustrated Terrible product, do not buy!
The push button feed does not work. The spool tangles even when it is the original spool. The line breaks about every minute. The cord lock does not hold the cord. The spool caps comes off , especially since you have to manually pull out the string so often. You will spend more time pulling string out than doing the job.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Katie Good value for the money
This is my third purchase of this model...I have worn out two others in about 7 years. As they age they get a bit floppy (tired joints), and the spool doesn't always advance automatically (I just pull it forward manually), but, for the price I am a repeat buyer...no gasoline noise, and easy to handle.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by OK608 Basic that works!
I have a small yard but needed the ability to trim the edges without large equipment. This basic trimmer does just that. The edge guide came off as soon as I first used it and was run over by the mower so no edge guide.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kc1424 My husband had a difficult time putting on the safety guard
The safety guard didn't snap into place easily. We had this product before and had a difficult time finding string replacement spools, thus we stocked up and had 3 spools when our older item stopped working. The spools are hard to rewind when on just buys the line.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NeverAgain This was the WORST, most sorry excuse for a grass trimmer I've ever had the displeasure of buying.
Horrible experience. At least you have decent customer service reps, although at this rate you won't need them....... By the way, this was the SECOND one you sent: the 1st one was USED. This second 1 will not feed: both came in boxes with ZERO packing material.
