  1. Let me share a small story that should tell you how good this trimmer is:

    A friend of mine just bought a house, where the yard had been so undermaintained, that the grass was almost waist high. Last night, we went over to remedy the situation. We brought a powerful lawn mower, a Toro trimmer, and this B&D Trimmer. The lawnmower proved useless in grass that high, so we set out to cut it with the trimmers. I used the this B&D while my friend used the Toro. Thanks to the power of this trimmer, and the Automatic Line Feed, I managed to cut 80% of the lawn while my friend could only cut the remaining 20. While he was working to get more line out (or, often taking apart the spool because the line had broken off inside of it) I was chopping down 13″ paths in the grass.

    The Toro also seemed to get bogged down by the heavy grass, while this B&D just kept on going! I’ve seen some people say that the automatic line feed uses too much line… Well, I cut down at least an acre of waist high grass, weeds, small bush like things, etc. last night – and didn’t go through a whole spool. I’d really like to know how these people are using so much line.

    If you’re looking for a high power, easy to use trimmer at a great price – this is it! I’m ordering one today after seeing it in action last night!

    My experience is that this Auto Feed trimmer IS indeed a string hungry monster. I would have given it 5 stars otherwise. Fortunately, hand winding a reload is a fairly fast & simple proposition. I cannot recommend highly enough to buy the largest roll (for economy) of bulk string refill you can find. The reason I probably gobble more string than some other reviewers is because I do use it as designed, to edge along concrete as well as clear flora from along the foundation of my house. This brute actually breaks up loose cement with a loud “Ka-chunk!” (there goes a bunch of line) and keeps on whacking, so for heavy-duty operations it does garner the 5th star. Maybe with more experience I’ll edge precisely and never hit the concrete at all – but in the mean time it’s winding and whacking (and relaxing and admiring). I now have the best looking driveway, sidewalks & curb on my street.

  3. I thought I would come back after two years and write a follow-up review. I don’t understand the other reviews because I use my trimmer on a quarter acre of tall grass and weeds and it works great. I have cleared it four times now and I am still on my first spool. It still looks like Mattel toy but this does the job.

  4. This trimmer works beautifully and is lightweight….easy to use…the automatic feed feature is excellent and works well with little effort. I have found very little problems with excess use of line. I like the idea of the line coming in a pop-in reel that is not a threading problem.

  5. I had a gas trimmer/edger before this (I still have it). This is an excellent equipment for the following reasons – Low price, saves gas (Electric), Light weight (No battery), powerful trimmer & edger, autofeed.

    Downside – Uses lot of line. This uses one spool for about 3 cuts (depending on the size of lawn). You will need a long power cord (100 ft).

    But it is still worth more then its price.
