    Works well with a small change
    The GH3000 is a great trimmer with a lot of power. However, when first using the trimmer it seemed to be to powerful for the .o8 string it ate it up like crazy, I even bought a replacement spool and the same thing happened the .08 string was gone before I was half finished. So, I tried some .09 string I had on hand and it worked great as long as the string was wound evenly and tight. I do have a glitch every now and then with the auto feed but it only take a minute or two to fix but it doesn't happen very often.

    I like the 7.5A power and the 14" cut. I would recommend it with the use of the .09 string


    It could have better directions for use

    Not sure what all of the fuss is about.....
    I bought this trimmer in June '13 and I have never had a problem with the "Automatic Feed System" (AFS) or with the trimmer going through too much line. I'm not sure what capacity everyone is using this trimmer, but I use mine strictly as a trimmer. I've re-spooled my line a couple of times and still haven't had any trouble with the line feeding. Mine works like a champ and cuts through everything I've come across

    Light weight, Strong, Reliable

    Very Dissatisfied
    It is very unfortunate that such a mostly well designed and powerful trimmer fails to perform appropriately. The Automatic line feed is unreliable and frankly, since it releases large amounts of excess line on occasion and this line is severed and then becomes a projectile, I find it too dangerous to use. I have trimmed my entire lawn with one spool of trimmer line, but sometimes I will go through 6 to 8 spools for the same job. I do not consider myself a mechanical dummie, but I have worked with this trimmer and have not been able to solve the problem.

    Uses 0.80 line, twin line, powerful


    All pros can not negate the non-operative line feed that makes the trimmer unusable.

    Expensive to use Uses excessive amounts of line
    I wish I could rate the GH3000 a zero. It goes through line like crazy. I would never purchase this product again. I had been a loyal purchaser of Black and Decker products in the past and this experience may affect my future purchases of Black and Decker products.

    The wheel makes it is to trim in a straight line


    Goes through line crazy. I am filling the spool every 5 minutes or so. A real peace of junk.

    the first time I used it, it used an entire spool of trimmer line. the cheap hard plastic handle will give you a blister in 90 seconds. the second time I used it the whole cheap plastic trimmer head assembly overheated after an hour of use and melted off of the rotating shaft leaving me with a useless piece of garbage. waist of time and money :(

    that it is in a garbage landfill somewhere now.


    cheap plastic parts melted after an hour of whacking weeds.

    Great Product
    Very powerful, light weight, easy to use trimmer. Line feed works like a charm. Easy to assemble and great balance with the power head up by the handle instead of at the base. This reduces the strain on the operator with the weight by the handle.

    The 0.80 inch line and the powerful motor cut through grass, weeds, and blackberry bushes.


    The Instruction Manual is not very clear and easy to use.

    The line spool is junk and it is so poorly designed it should meet recall requirements. I agree with previous reviews, that there should be a zero star option for this item.



    line spool is junk

    Don't buy this product: Line advance system fails. Should hava a zero star option, one is being too generous
    From day one it didn't last through one mowing of the lawn. refilled spool and then didn't advance at all? This product should be recalled. I usually need to take the cap off, pull the spool out and manually advance the line and put the cap back on. Should have returned it the first day of use in retrospect.

    Nothing to like if it doesn't work correctly. It has motivated me to do research first before buying a replacement for this piece of junk. Agree it's light weight for tossing in the garbage.


    line advance system This is not a green product if everybody is throwing it away. Might as well get a gas operated trimmer that works

    It is a piece of garbage. THE LINE FEED DOES NOT WORK. I am an engineer and ex mechanic, I patiently messed with the new spool for hours. I threw it in the garbage out of frustration, and that is where it belongs. Once again - DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT - IT IS A PIECE OF CRAP

    It is light weight so it was easy to toss in the trash


    line feed -DOES NOT WORK

    Uses too much line
    I have been very careful to wind the line neatly, but at times it has gone through a spool of line in 10 minutes.

    Has good power.


    Auto feed system needs to be fixed.
