Rated 2 out of 5 by from Automatic Feed Spool (AFS) Is a Joke! I bought this to replace my 15 year old grass trimmer that was used religiously on my medium sized yard. This Black & Decker trimmer used up the whole spool of string in just two uses. I looked at the mechanism that determines when to feed the line, and its based on motor speed changes i.e. you release the trigger and then press the trigger. I guess the engineer that designed this has never used a grass trimmer before. I ended up returning the trimmer and buying a battery powered Toro that has the bump button on the bottom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving it I have had Black & Decker tools through the decades and never had a bad experience. They may not be for every day hard core professional use but they are good enough for the occasional user. After reading the existing reviews I was afraid that the nylon string gets used up too quickly, but being a littler careful solved that problem. The powerful motor certainly is a plus. I love it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I bought this last fall and never again! Bought it last fall on sale and used it twice. First time seem to work well - good power etc--- second time he spool stopped spinning yet I was hearing a whirring sound. Then got a burning plastic smell. Stopped immediately - tried to open it up by removing the screws but the plastic was melted at the seems so could not do that! Definitely not a great experience!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A GREAT TRIMMER/EDGER BUT............ A great trimmer/edger that advances the string each time that the power switch is turned on and off instead of having to pound the machine on the ground. However with this method the string is used up rather quickly. To correct this a simple disconnect switch modification is required so that string is advanced only when desired. I can be done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome trimmer Love it. I have a small lot and it is wonderful. The fact that you can rotate the head to do edging is the best - turns a trimmer noob into a seasoned pro. It makes such a difference. Perfect for my needs and no complaints.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Website misleading Was looking for a battery operated trimmer and your website led me to this. As it is a plug in I am not as happy as I would have been. I wish the website would just include what was requested as options.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from the spool I can only rate this a 3 due to the fact when I fill the spool with plastic cording, it breaks off and uses all the spool when I hit a rock or big branches etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very reliable Easy to use, light, not to noisy, price just right. Recommended especially on small backyard.

Can I self reload string to reel and can I use .080 string instead of .065? THANK YOU

Asked by: Customer
Yes it is very easy to reload, I have used only the .065 string, don’t know if you can use other size.  This trimmer is very light weight, easy to use, trims grasses & weeds very well and is easy to put away.
