Works Great

Bought this to replace my gas trimmer. Trigger was broken and a pain to start and felt like a vibrating machine when using it. Got this home from the store, took a little time to figure out putting it together but once done was out trimming all around the back fence as well as the sides of the house.

Pros: Easy to use and adjust, both wife and I can use, easy to change line, no more hassle with loading line

Cons: only thing I can see is the manual, it needs to give better information so not having to flip pages back and forth between words and pictures.

Easy to use if you don't fuss with it, poor quality control

I hated it at first. I thought the line should be autofeeding to the size of the string cutter on the guard. I kept manually feeding it to get it there every few feet of work. When I stopped fussing over that (it autofeeds shorter, the cutter seems to be a safety backup) the autofeed worked fine for trimming and edging, against concrete and wire fence.

Use enough cord, it was awful trying to use a short one. With the longer cord and accepting the autofeed performance, I liked it.

Using the edging wheel guide as intended is NOT SAFE if you are trying to edge your lawn at the street curb, you would have to stand IN THE STREET to do as the manual says. Thanks... I'll free hand it instead. Consider moving that wheel to the other side, its always safe to stand in the grass.

Until on the third use, 20 minutes in, it slowed down and died 10 seconds later. No overheat, no smoke, proper gauge and length extension cord, cool dry weather. Now it won't even try to turn. Total POS or a bad part... who knows. It was either the trigger or the rectifier or a fuse, but I am not going to figure out their problem. Moving on to a competitor for this product I think.

Its too bad, most B&D products seem basic but good. My old toaster oven is still kicking, and I have a corded drill that works just fine after it dried out from a flood.

Pros: Easy to toggle between trim and edge. Company storage. Powerful enough, no batteries. Cheap.

Cons: Poor balance. Cord lock is a bit too tight for proper size cord. Poor quality control.

Use with .095 generic line to get some use.

Absolutely useless with the .065 line that comes with it, the pack of refills is useless too. Requires .095 trimmer line for any use. May not last for 20 years like my craftsman that it replaced.

Pros: The guide wheel works well.

Cons: The standard line needs changing about every 20 feet of edging or fence trimming. Need to use .095 line and wind it your self.

Very nice product!

14" 6.5 Amp String Trimmer and Edger. Have had three different versions of this same trimmer in the past 5 years. This is the best by-far of the three trimmers. Could keep this model "as is" for the future models.

Pros: The guide wheel on the front of edger is the best feature of the trimmer. Makes it so much better to edge on walks, driveways, and curbs. Also, going back to the single string instead of double string, was a plus for me. Seeing how I purchase this model about every two years, please do not change these two features in the near future. Also like the adjustable handle. Have areas where the shorter handle works better than fully extended.

Cons: Not much to dislike about this product. If anything it does not last longer before it needs to be replaced.
