Questions & Answers

Can the spool be rewound or do you have to buy prefilled spools? What is the cost of the prefilled spools?

Asked by: Liz
Pros and Cons: If you buy an replacement spool it will feed better, but over a short time the purchase spools will cost more then the price of the trimmer. Doing it by hand can be done and it is much cheaper, BUT, it will jam much easier and a five minutes job will turn into an twenty minutes or more. No matter how careful you wind it by hand you will get the same results.

Several reviews have stated that auto-feed does not work (or does not work well) when using trimmer in edging mode. My old trimmer was bump-feed. What is causing the problem with auto-feed while edging, and can I do anything to minimize the problem?
Asked by: BumpFeeder
Two Years with this trimmer and it is the worse auto-feed that I have ever had to work with.

How well does this work around chain link fencing?

Asked by: Nay nay
The small line they provide on their reels does not last at all around chain link. None of it does, but this is a little less durable than most.

14 in. 5 Amp Corded String Trimmer is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 518.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Toro 14 Electric trimmer/Edger (51480A) This trimmer/edger has nice features but very poor performance and quality since new. The line trimmer feed has been the major problem since I bought it. I have had to operate a minute until the line broke off, stop and then manually feed more line to accomplish anything. Line has never fed automatically and after many hours of frustrated, complicated operation I finally realized the line is all fused together about every 6" on the spool and will not feed. I purchased this model as a replacement for a long used product which was good but no longer available. I do not recommend this product and suggest purchasing something else more reliable.

I was a bit skeptical about the quality of the product but when I received it I was surprised by its quality price, it is very well built and it looks strong, I only had it for a week and I cut the grass once and I can say that it is very powerful and firm in the cut, it has good size, only that I felt a bit heavy but nothing that can easily exhaust you, what I liked the most is the ease with which it fits the cutting cord, you just have to give a soft hit on the ground and the reel easily lets out the cutting cord, I recommend this product to those who do not want to use more gas

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Spooling System is Problematic and Fragile I bought this 3 years ago and I am constantly going through line unnecessarily as the spooling system is not very good. Also, when i have to advance the feed, i usually have to take off the cap and pop the whole thing back in. Now the cap is broken, from only basic part time use. Luckily, I was able to find a replacement part online, but I've had trimmers last for over a decade and with much less hassle than this. I would not buy again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money I have owned Toro products in the past and they have been great. So when my trimmer broke I looked at Toro first. I have a new baby so I haven't had much time to get to my lawn, so today I got up and started trimming, it worked great. My problem came when I went to unplug it and the metal part of the plug stayed in my extension cord. I contacted the place of purchase and they were no help. Don't waste your money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Feed line does not work The line breaks after 30 sec's of use. It will not move on the spool unless I completely remove the spool. I am very disappointed with this tool. When I first used it, it was great because it was light weight and easy to use. But, soon the line started snapping and I cannot remedy the problem. Very unhappy with the lack of functionality on a basic feature required to use the thing.
