Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent trimmer! But can't buy spool cap. I had this PowerPlex trimmer for couple years now. It is an excellent trimmer, each full battery charge good for few times use. And the battery still strong after couple years. My spool cap just broke, and I now realized that I can't find any retail stores or online stores in Canada that sell the spool cap. (Part #136-2554). Not even Home Depot. You can order only thru some US online stores, but shipping to Canada will cost you 4 times the price. Fortunately, Home Depot sells the Ryobi trimmer spool cap that fits perfectly for this trimmer. Only different is the color (grey vs orange or black). I am not sure why Toro is not selling replacement parts in Canada and give business to their competitors.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beware! Trimmer does not work! Trimmer feed does not work from day 1. This has been the most frustrating part, will spend lots of time with it turned upside down trying to figure out what is going on. Have to buy more line, as the trial package was wasted on malfunctioning trimmer feed. No where carries the line, even Home Depot. Motor and look is good. Awkward design, built for a person 6 foot or taller. Would not purchase again and considering returning it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from looking good! the weedwacker does a good job on grass and even thin blackberry bushes. if the stems of the latter are too thick, the string breaks ... which is not surprising since it really isn't intended for items like that. it is a flexible design and has a decent battery.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not to impressed bought this august 25 2018 to replace my old home lite 2 stroke trimmer.Not so great used it and never had to charge it for the rest of the season .But when i went to charge it for the first time this spring May 18 2019 it will not charge. The flashing lights indicate that the battery needs to be replaced .Well so much for battery outdoor equipment back to my old two stroke after 20 years it never let me down

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Digger I have multiple Toro gas machines for my home equipment and thought i couldn't go wrong with another piece. This product has good power and decent battery life however I find that the string tends to dig in instead of cut. Almost as if the string is off balance because there is only 1 instead of 2. Overall a decent product for what I need it for but not totaly happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool Very satisfied so far. Works great, powerful and not too heavy. The edger angle and wheel are great features, adds to the look of my lawn. I have a corner house and I have more than plenty to do the whole yard with one charge. Great tool. I've already bought the hedge trimmer which works with the same battery.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Satisfied! Replaced my old gas trimmer with this unit and have only used a few times so far and I’m very satisfied with the trimmer, the charge has more than enough to do my property, (which has a lot of trimming to do) an is lightweight enough to use for an extended period of time. Nice unit, no issues!!

Can it take any string or does it have to be their own brand name?

Asked by: prophecy
For the PowerPlex 13-inch 40V Max String Trimmer/Edger use only 2 mm (0.080 inch) diameter monofilament string. Do not use any other gauge or type of string, as this could damage the trimmer. Use the original manufacturer’s replacement string for best performance (Toro Part No. 88545, Home Depot item 1001073225).
