    Good product for the price.
             
    I had a little trouble putting new line into it, but it was my fault. I assumed that arrow on spool indicated direction of spin, like my Toro trimmer and I was wrong. It was telling what direction to wind new line. Once I corrected this, I never had problems again.
    Pros:

    Light weight and easy to use.

    Cons:

    The guard could be bigger, so that I don't get hit with debris on my ankles.

    Worked for 5 minutes!
             
    I bought it last year, but never took it out of the box until this spring 2014. It worked fine -- for five minutes! The line got tangled and I didn't know how to rewind it (I tried twice). I came to the B&D Web site to find the manual, and saw these reviews. It seems that a lot of folks had the same trouble I encountered.
    Pros:

    It looks nice (?)

    Cons:

    It doesn't work. The string does not feed correctly, and I cannot get it back to where it will work.

    WON'T LAST!
             
    Right after exactly a year (average 10 minutes per 2 weeks ), the motor stopped working completely, before that the spooling reel was cracked (the thin plastic would not handle the rotation force! )
    Pros:

    Very practical and convenient

    Cons:

    Built /designed not to last as B&D's products in the 80's and 90's used to be(reminded me of the Hewlett & Packard's products of 80's vs. nowaday!)

    Nice Handling little trimmer
             
    Nice and compact. But after the initial load of string its never advanced the string right. I believe I followed the reload instructions correctly. Done it three times still no advancement. Bought actual B&D String, still no advance.
    Pros:

    Not sure.

    Cons:

    Does not advance the string .

    Very Disapppointed
             
    I needed it for edge trimming in a fairly small yard. It worked well for about 4 uses and then the power head (the mechanism into which the string spool snaps) can loose and I could not find a way to tighten it. Basically it's an expensive throw away.
    Pros:

    cheap

    Cons:

    cheap

    Works for me everytime
             
    This has worked very well for me since day one...I honestly don't know why all the bad comments - I've abused this thing and it's still working fine. I've had it for 2 years and do a LOT of trimming, and never had a problem. The only thing they could do better is the line: it unraveled one time when I was putting the spool in and it was very frustrating to get it re-wound. I figured it out: keep the spool intact, and at the when it's in it the housing, unwind the line so it's really long (8-10 inches or so), put it in the two slots and you'll be fine.
    Pros:

    it's really durable.

    Cons:

    redesign the spool do it doesn't unravel

    Not worth it...
             
    Good power for 2 string trimmer. Lasted only 8 1/2 months. Motor froze up and tried to return to Sears with warranty/coverage. Sears didn't sell same product like it anymore. Had to wait for 'gift card' from Sears 2 weeks. Meanwhile went to Home Depot and purchased model GH3000. Happy now. If something goes wrong in 2 years I can get replacement right away. No waiting...
    Pros:

    2 Strings

    Cons:

    Motor did not last. Even previous trimmer lasted 4 years...

    Overall, a lightweight and versatile trimmer/edger. Little difficult to restring dual lines.
             
    Purchased this product hoping it would last for a few years. It lasted just one year; the trigger/switch went out. Could not locate a replacement trigger on line. Frustrated so went out and purchased a B&D GH90 as a replacement. Hopes this lasts longer than 1 year.
    Pros:

    Lightweight, efficient, easy to use

    Cons:

    Did not last. Replacement part not found on internet.

    not enough expletives
             
    There are not enough expletives in the English language as to how bad this product is. I wish I would have read the reviews first because everything that is mentioned that other's have had go wrong I had the exact same problems with. It worked great on the original spool of line but Lord help anyone that has to rethread the line. It took me almost 60 feet of line and an hour to finish a 14x70 foot space. DO NOT PURCHASE THIS ITEM!! A complete waste of money and B&D should be appalled at how badly this item works! And I thought the Homelife brand I was previously using was bad...
    Pros:

    It worked great the first time I used it.

    Cons:

    Pray you never have to reline the spool, it won't ever work after that. If it was possible to give zero stars I would

    Why all the bad reviews? This machine is working great for me!
             
    I have a 1/4 acre lot and the GH710 is perfect. I have found the wire guide to be very helpful with edging. Rotating for trim to edge is very simple. Adjusting the length was helpful in creating balance feel. The dual-line creates a clean cut compared to the single-line trimmers I have had in the past.
    Pros:

    Clean cut, price, self feed line, ease of switching edge to trim and back.

    Cons:

    The fact that it is corded, but for my small lot, I don't mind dragging a cord with me.
