Grass Hog 5.5 Trimmer & Edger

Have used this Trimmer/Edger no more than 4 times.. In middle of edging my lawn, it STOPPED, checked GFI, no issue, replaced cartridge, still wouldn't start, purchased new exterior electrical cord, Still won't start. Of course purchased long before had lawn put in, so NO Warranty. This is a piece of junk, and Black & Decker is a huge name brand. Very Disappointed in this purchase

Pros: Nothing at this point

Cons: Entire Unit and Black and Decker for putting this product on the market

Worked very well, for as long as it worked... Appears to have a design weakness...

I have had two of these. I live in Southern California and mow and edge my lawn weekly, year around. The first of these lasted just under a year and became unusable due to the failure of the top motor bearing. The bearing froze causing the bearing housing to spin in its holder, destroying the motor. Although the unit was still under the original two year warranty, the time required and the inconvenience of obtaining warranty service did not seem worth the trade off in comparison to the relatively low cost of a new trimmer, so I bought a new one of the same model. The same problem occurred just over six months after purchase, indicating to me that this recurring problem must be indicative of an inherent weakness in the design, so I bought something entirely different.

Pros: Inexpensive, lightweight, powerful, versatile, easy on trimmer line, works well with trimmer spools refilled with bulk line.

Cons: Extremely poor durability.

DON'T DO IT......JUST WALK AWAY

This is the sorriest piece of Chinese crap I ever bought. Buying the top model, I thought I was getting a trimmer that would work. It has plenty of power, but it is hard to control. You will use at least an entire spool of line for an average yard. The marketing approach must be to sell tons of line.

Pros: Plenty of power

Cons: Everything else.

Okay, but .....

The trimmer has a lot of power even at great distances (I am forced to use 1-100' & 1-50 ' extension cord due to a lack of outlets). I struggle wrapping the cord but I think I'd struggle with any trimmer and I can't buy the pre-wrapped locally. I would recommend this to a friend with hesitations.

Pros: A lot of power. Trims excellent and does a suburb job edging my side walk. Like I said, I would recommend this trimmer to a friend.

Cons: The ONLY REASON I did NOT -- nor will I -- give this product a 5-star rating is: There is a small, plastic part that keeps the wheel that the string is on in place and prevents it from just spinning out of control. This piece, because it is black and plastic, is very, VERY difficult to find if it gets lost. Furthermore, it is made out of plastic so a magnetic roller won't pick it up. (They probably did this on purpose!) When you lose this part, you have a piece of junk. I have been very careful to wrap my cord on cement so if it falls out, I can retrieve it. Yesterday I wasn't so lucky. That is why I'm on this site because I am going to re-order 3 or 4 of these tiny plastic parts for future mishaps. Other than that, it is a good trimmer.
