Where is this product made?

I believe it is made in China. This thing is a Pc of junk. Completely useless with the Auto feed head. Main part of a string trimmer and it is it's worst feature. Don't waste your money

I used 2 times and it doesn't work any more .

Should still be under warranty. Take it back.

How do you replace the spool? How do you replace the spool?

Push the two buttons in to remove the spool cap. Once the cap is removed, make a note of how the existing spool is in there. Replace it the same way with a new spool and run the end of the string through the hole. Place the cap back on and run the trimmer to cut the excess string.

Can I plug this into the AC Outlet of my Chevy (with the engine running) for grass trimming around a grave marker at the cemetery?

Probably not safe. Look near the outlet, it should tell you how many amps it is good for. Then look at your trimmer or it's instruction manual and see how many amps it draws. You would be better off getting a cordless or gas powered trimmer for trimming around a grave.

Answer

If you know what you are doing you can. It is pressed on. You need a good gear/bearing puller. I had contacted B&D about doing this, they said "can't be replaced" I bought a different brand because I was tired of spending so much time trying to trim my yard. Over the winter I may get bored enough to play with this. The auto feed head is a POS.

How can I put the string in this tool?

Broke

I've bought two of these weed eaters and both of them broke the same way. There's a little part that the string spool sit's on that break's off and the string just come out. I have cuts all over my legs because of it.

I wanted to add some pics of the worn thru cap. These caps are only lasting me 2-3 hours. At $4.97 each this is not cheap! B&D you need to improve these caps with thicker plastic or metal bottom Otherwise a nice weed whip

Burnt Out Three Extension Cords

I am on my 4th weedeater, last exactly just over 2 year warranty. I just thought maybe that is the time frame it should last. I have no idea why it is melting where I plug in cord on weedeater. I can smell it heating up, I could barely unplug because of overheating and melting. Only happens close to two year time frame. My first Black and Decker weedeater years ago I had no problem. I can see reading reviews I am not only on with this problem.

Customer review from blackanddecker.com logo
I bought this Trimmer last month and I keep falling in love with it. It is really simple to use and doesn’t take long to do my front and back yard. The only problem is the line is not that long but other than that my yard looks great.

Uses a LOT of line
Features :
3
Quality :

Value :

Nutshell: Works great when replaced line is wound on precisely, however it uses too much and leaves bits all over the place. I was excited about a lot of things: ease of assembly, ease of use, that the length of it was adjustable for us short folk, and that it came with a spool of string, ready to go! However, I ran out of line in about 15-20 minutes. I rewound some line on and found out quickly that being precise with winding it is VERY important. What was good enough for my old weedeater was NOT okay for this one. I carefully started over and it worked much better, however the autofeed kicks out too much line, leaving plastic string all over the ground as well as being wasteful and time-consuming to keep replacing.

I purchased this yesterday and I am quite impressed. I have about 80ft in front of a newly built home that has rocks everywhere. Because of the new build and the soil being placed in front of my home I have a lot of weeds. This trimmer not only cut everything down in its path. Rocks were no match for it. It was easy to use, lightweight and cut down everything but also allowed me to move around things I wanted to keep up. I have arthritis so sometimes these trimmers are too heavy for me when you add those rechargeable batteries. My arms did not hurt after using this.

Defective by design
Features :
3
Quality :

Value :

Don't expect to get much use out of this trimmer. The design is defective. The upper bearing assembly allows dirt and moisture to get into the upper bearing causing it to fail. This is because the upper bearing is not sealed. Skateboards have better ball bearings than this. The ball bearing is not easily replaceable unless you have a bearing puller and a bearing press handy and you think it's worth your time. The other problem is that most of the screws holding it together are deeply recessed and the holes accumulate grass, dirt and moisture. They are difficult to clean and over time the screws will rust despite the coating.

OLD Model: The A/C power cord old model about 8yrs was a good performer I replaced the on/off switch to keep it going longer. NEW Model: This A/C power cord model is a great new one b/c 1. Lighter then most rechargeable models. 2. It can switch between an Edger and a Weed Eater a lot of others only as a Weed Eater @ $199 3. This was $49.99 vs the rechargeable ones that go up too $199+ 4. The Line String lasted way longer, it only needed 2x's to add more line in the WHOLE back yard I edged and weeded than my older one which broke every 7 min. about 25x's to reload. 5. A/C power has the Advantage of never having to charge a battery, no buy replacement batteries, no waiting to charge up the batteries and the cost is way way less to use an A/C powered one.
