Rated 2 out of 5 by Horrible Trimmer This is one of the worst trimmers I have ever owned. The bump feature to advance line works every fourth or fifth time and you can not manually advance the line. if the bump doesn't advance you have to take the entire head off to get more line. Absolutely awful. April 28, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by I spent more time re stringing the head than using it I was hopeful when i bought this. It is very powerful. But the sting kept breaking off inside the head. I spent more time re stringing it than trimming with it. April 27, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Trimmer and Edger I probably edge more than I trim. This machine does both very well. Starts on a pull or two, is very quiet and runs great. This is a very good product. April 27, 2016
