Owner of my 3rd Weed Eater trimmer
Big fan of Weed Eater trimmers. My first two have lasted me about 2 & 3 seasons. This is to say that I trimmed over 20 lawns a week in the cutting season with them.
My last 2 trimmers were running fine, however the trimmer head cable was not turning anymore. I tried resolving this issue, however it was on and off until I got fed up and bought a new one.
I love its light weight, its maneuverability and easy operating use. Recommend the curved bar instead of the straight one. (better trimming balance)

Not what I wanted after useing
When I brought this it was in the box. If I could have seen it out of the box and held it, I would not have brought it. It is not adjustable. You have to adjust your body to the weed eater not the other way around. It was a pain in my arms and back. I can not afforn to replace it right now so I will have to use it for a couple of seasons. If I try to replace this one with another weedeater I will make sure it is out of the box so I can test it out.

String trimmer for a low price
I have own this string trimmer for two seasons now. At first it worked just fine. It still starts just fine, long as I follow the instructions to a T. However the line started to not advance. I searched the net for information on how to get to work like it once did. Even bought extra spools. Finally took matters into my own hands. I spray the spool holder with WD40 and the inside of the spool. You do not want to overspray these areas due to fact that it flip out as trimmer spins. I also make sure the cutter on the guard is sharp and free from dirt. This all seem to help the line advance problem. The vibration of the motor and spinning shaft is a bit much but taking a break from it seems to help. The box says it will cut hedge, well it does not do that. The length is a bit not long enough for comfort and puts you in the line of fire for the flying grass and is heavy to hold.

Not so hot
I was very disappointed that this item had to go in for repairs only two weeks after i bought it because it was leaking gas. After two weeks in the shop for repair, I am also disappointed that it is clumsy to handle to do a vertical edging job.

My weedeater broke in less than 2 months
I it melted the spin head as I was weed eating my weeds i only had use it 3 other times, it is due to lack of quality parts made on this weed eater if it had been made with quality durable plastic head it would have been able to with stand the heat it was producing.why is it that we don't make quality any more. the usa was always known for producing quality not junk, lets see if this is under warranty, ill keep you posted.

Poor Product Line
Purchased less than a year ago. I alsways do a monthly cleaning and routine maintenance. Started to use it the other day and am unable to get it to start. I have already replaced the primer bulb about three months ago. Dimantled the machine and thought maybe the ingnition magnet was dirty and not allowing to fire when the flyweel rotates. Indeed, it was dirty. Cleaned it off and still unable to get it to start. have tried no less than three retailer/repair shops and none of them will honor the Weed-eater 2-year warranty. My next step is to either call or write (probably both) the company and ask for my money back.

I have been using an electric weed eater brand weed trimmer since Feb 2005 ( I wrote the date on the trimmer). Finallty the line cutter fell apart. The trimmer still was going strong. I decided to stick with weed eater since it had severd me so well. I baught this gas trimmer. I had it less that 2 months and the trimmer head stopped working. $70.00 down the drain. I don't plan on taking it to a shop so I returned it to the store despite the instructions. I was lucky, they took it back and said go grab a new one. I grabbed the only one left on the shelf took it home, opend the box and found this one covere with grass and dirt. It had been returned. I took it back to the store again they took it back. I asked for a refund and bought a Poulan gass trimme that when I use it I get this desire to look for anything that needs trimming even in the neighbors yard.
