Does the string trimmer has the option of attachment capable, like the blade for cutting instead of string?
Asked by: MARY
UPDATE ! I recently changed the trimmer head to a bump string. I liked the way the bump string works rather the way it was with cutting your string and pushing through the string. Now that I replaced the string to a bump stringer I know my blade attachment will also work. Great machine

This appears to be identical to the Southland SWSTM4317 except the price is $25 more expensive. Are you going to continue to sell both? Is there any advantage to purchasing this one over the Southland model? Does Home Depot have any local service centers that would not be available with the Southland Model? I am just trying to figure out why I would want to pay $25 dollars more for the exact same item?
Asked by: chriscwv
I know nothing about the Southland, but this one has a tilt (to the right side) and cutter will swing to the right.

17 in. 43cc Gas Multi-Function Wheeled String Trimmer is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 24.

The advantage of wheels over weight on your back using a regular trimmer is amazing. It took about an hour to assemble. We added the 50:1 gas to oil ratio (using one gallon can). The oil is included. Just prime, put the choke on, and pull the recoil starter handle. Very easy to start. We tried it on some high weeds at the edge of the property and it went through them easily. The swivel head can be adjusted for either side of the mower with a lever on the handle. The trimmer head can also be adjusted higher for obstacles. The handle can be folded down for transport or storage. It doesn't take much room to store. I am actually looking forward to trimming now, not dreading it!!

I would have given this 5 stars but all of us who have used it are over 6 foot tall, and all had the same comment " if it were only 2 inches taller" it was well packaged, it went together really well with the instructions and the video on Home Depots Web site. It came with a lot of information about the negatives of ethanol in our fuel. We mixed the included 2 stroke oil into 1 gallon of ethanol free fuel which is available around here, followed the starting instructions and in 3 pulls it was running. After the first tank we changed the fuel mix to a fully synthetic oil and it really took off. We cut and trimmed about 1.5 acre in the first day. Cuts large open areas really well and trims areas really easy. This has become my go to trimmer, no more neck straps for me.

It was easy to assemble, started right up and is easy to use. The speed control is convenient to use as it is located right on the handlebars.. The angle of cut is easily adjustable as is the forward tilt of the machine. This makes it possible to trim the edges better. Changing the string is easy too. There is storage for the precut lengths and they are easily inserted into the cutting head which takes 3 thicknesses of cutting line. These are easily inserted and ready to use.

The bigger wheels make for easy maneuvering and easy pushing. The string is pretty strong, I was cutting 1/8 sapplings with no issues. As for motor strength, it had no issues with 10X12 section of overgrown grass. The only downside is I wish the handle bars came up a little taller. I'm 6'1 and have to bend shoulders a little.

I avoid trimming work, because gas powered trimmers are so heavy, and they vibration drives me crazy! I was so excited to try a walk behind model, I have lots of places where I can't get in with my mower, and this trimmer makes touching up those spots so easy! I trim around my trees and fruit bushes, and I also trim the fence line. The fence line is the trickiest, I would get the edge attachment, especially if you have hog/cattle fencing like I do. the string will get hung up on the cattle fencing if you try to trim along it without an edger. I will say, that it did make short work of the field grass/hay that comes up along the fence. It will even take care of small brush and vines. It's not heavy and is really easy to maneuver. You can also adjust the wheel height and the angle of the front cutter. If you have a lot of trim work in your yard or around your property, I'd definitely recommend this trimmer! It will make your life much easier.

This is a very strong, durable, powerful unit, the walk-behind design of which completely prevents the backache normally associated with operating a heavy gas-engine-equipped trimmer on a large property. The trimmer itself does an outstanding job, especially around fence posts and below open rail fence. This machine’s really well-thought-out design places the weight on its wheels instead of on the user.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have a gasoline powered, hand held string trimmer. It doesn't take long, after working with it ... I have a gasoline powered, hand held string trimmer. It doesn't take long, after working with it for awhile, to wear me out. This Powermate wheeled string trimmer mower is exactly what I needed for my small yard at home & around the farm buildings. It is light weight, which makes it easy to roll back & forth, or maneuver side to side. The engine is powerful & spun the cutting line at high speed, quickly severing grass & weeds. Some high grass would wrap around the joint between the line head & wand, but it was easy to clean out. The ergonomic design of the handle was comfortable to hold & work with. The power control throttle is perfectly positioned for long term use, without fatiguing me. The bevel/tilt lever on the left wheel, quickly changed the cutting angle, so I could cut closer to the ground. With a simple pull on a lever, on the right side of the handle bar, I changed the angle of the whole cutting head. This released the cutting head so It could be positioned to cut at a 20, or 30 degree angle, which helped me cut closer to a fence, or building. The product comes with an easy to follow operators manual, spark plug wrench & bottle of oil to mix with one gallon of gasoline. I always use unleaded, non alcohol gasoline for my gasoline powered outdoor equipment. The 50 to 1 gas to oil mixture ratio is the same as my other equipment, so no special mixture was needed for this string trimmer. The start/stop engine switch is a nice safety addition. The choke lever, priming pump & start/stop switch are all located close to each other & easy to use. A unique lever securely latched down the cutting head & makes removal of the cutting head for cleaning, or to attach another piece of equipment, quick & simple. Although extra cutting lines are conveniently located on the handle, I didn't need to change the line I was using. The cutting head came with a cutting line all ready installed. It did more work & wore so much better, than the line I use on my handheld string trimmer. This a great product.
