Q:Does the bent end of the edge guard point upward or downward when installed? The diagrams in the operator's manual and pictures on the box seem to show a flat edge guard, perhaps from an earlier model, so I could not discern the orientation.

Answer This Question

A:  Hi, there! Thanks for your question. This unit can easily switch from a trimmer to an edger with the 1-step push-button on the cutting head, changing the base orientation. If we’re understanding the question correctly, the bent edge of the guard should point downwards. You can view more details on page 5 of the manual at: https://images.thdstatic.com/catalog/pdfImages/9f/9f0b06a6-d7ae-4c09-826f-fd13891c9adf.pdf. Thanks!

            Answer This Question

            A:  Be careful , if the string is too heavy you can burn out your motor much quicker. There are heavier strings out there but they are not all suitable for for every trimmer. 

            by|Nov 30, 2022
              1 found this answer helpful

              A:  Since the trimmer uses pre-stringed reels of cord, it would require you to empty a spool and install larger string. The problem would be that the larger string would also be heavier and probably put a larger strain on the unit itself.

              by|Aug 8, 2021

                A:  Thank you for your question. You want to be sure you are using the correct string. Use only 1.65 mm (0.065 in) diameter monofilament string. For best performance, use only Toro replacement string (Part No. 88512).

                    I bought it and every 20 seconds, the line breaks and I have to manually take the head off and redo the lines. I will never buy another Toro product.

                      Unfortunately for me, this one I received was used and partially put together. Why would someone not put the handle on, is beyond me. This kind of device requires the handle so that the user does not have too much strain on body while using it. It should be noted that this device has some weight to it too. I tried to put the handle onto it, but could not get the item apart. Therefore, I decided to return it and got the RYOBI 18 watt with battery charger. HomeDepot (the store) was very gracious and let me exchange this. I have learned that the store and website are too different entities.

                      Greeneyes, sorry you had an issue with your trimmer. Sounds like you may have purchased an item which was returned. We do stand behind the warranty on our trimmers 100% and if you change your mind...we do have a lot of really cool options in our hand held trimmer line-up. See our yard tools page at Toro.com/yardtools for a full list of items which you might just love! :) Toro

                      Of the edger’s I have used over the past 50, years this is my favorite. This is the second time I have purchased this model trimmer. My first one was purchased in 2012. I reviewed it on June 13, 2012 after I had used it for a year. My comments are still available on the Home Depot web site. At that time, I rated it 5 stars. This year the motor still was running fine, but the auto line feed had become unreliable due to what I believe was normal wear. I checked what was available to replace it & decided to reorder the exact same model I had. I have used it for a month now & will continue to believe this Toro model is a 5-star edger/trimmer.

                      Toro Electric trimmer-- just fine for smaller yards
                      I bought this trimmer to replace a similarly-priced model from another brand. I had replaced multiple parts on my old trimmer and decided it was time for something new. I have only used it once, but it trims well and seems plenty powerful for my needs. I especially like the design for pivoting the head and the wheel for edging-- these are both better designs than the previous model. It does seem to go through string at a pretty good pace. Users might want to read up on the auto-feed spool, although it is similar to others I have used before. I have not owned it long enough to speak to durability, but my experience with Toro tells me that it should last just fine.

                      Like it but heavy and also not designed for its heft (it's broken)
                      I am done with Black & Decker electric trimmers so ordered this Toro online (why doesn't Home Depot sell these in their stores if everyone hates the B&D ones?). It is heavy (good sized motor that I hope will last a long time). But I'll deal with it because the rest of it is made pretty well except that after just two weeks of moderate use, the main aluminum shaft separated from the handle portion just below the handle. I don't think it was designed properly for its heftiness. That connection should not be a pressure/friction fitting. There needs to be a screw there (which I will try to add). For now, I'm holding it together (barely) by gripping the lower half of the shaft instead of by the handle. The best part is the manual trimmer line feed. Yes, I have to stop every couple of minutes to feed it some more line but that sure beats taking apart the stupid Black & Decker ones, feeding more line, putting it back together, and repeating every couple of minutes.

                      This Toro Electric Trimmer was shipped very quickly. Also the price is reasonable. This trimmer works wonderfully, I couldn't be happier with it.

                      Of the edgers I have used over the past 45 years this is my favorite.
                      I have now used this edger for 1 year without any problems. The automatic line feed is great. There is no need to tap the edger on the ground to advance the line. I was somewhat skeptical of the 0.065 line, but it has never broken since I have used it. Having the tilting head with a wheel for supporting it while you are edging is very helpful. Note: The edger is used twice monthly from May through September to maintain the sidewalks and curb on a 70' city lot. There is also a 20' driveway that is edged. The lawn is a combo of St. Augustine and Bermuda. It works well on both.

                      Easy to put together but performance is sub par. The light weed eater line makes it not proform well because it gets used quickly. The auto feed doesn’t seem to work at all. After reading the instructions multiple times I still couldn’t get it to work. I wish I would have bought another product.
