A Useless Company

While the product is ok, the company is not. I contacted Black & Decker to purchase a spool cap and 2 spools but since I live in Puerto Rico my only choice is to order the parts from a store in West Palm Beach Florida, and they want to charge me $40.30, mainly for shipping. Any and all products can be shipped to Puerto Rico using the U.S. Postal Service for a fraction of what these Black & Decker representatives want to charge me. When I lived in the continental United States, I trusted Black & Decker products. Never again will I purchase something from this company if I can avoid it.

Pros: It's fairly easy to use this trimmer.

Cons: See above

piece of crap

I bought this product because it was lightweight and electric. I didn't have to deal with the weight of the gas, fumes and the string starter. I hated it because the string would shoot out in long license and the cutter would not cut it. I would have to stop every minute or so to cut off the string and I went through string in no time. No matter how carefully and tightly I wound the string this was a problem. When the spool cap wore out I tried to buy another one at both Home Depot and Lowes.Neither one had a replacement nor could they order one. I would have to order the part from Black and Decker and spend $15 for shipping for a part that costs less than $5. I will NEVER buy a Black and Decker product again

Pros: Lightweight

Cons: String shoots out. Can't get replacement parts locally. Have to order them and pay high shipping cost.

Great trimmer, VERY powerful

For years I had a little Weed Eater brand trimmer I got at a garage sale for $3. Finally decided to replace it and after quite a bit of research, settled on this model. I don't like messing around with 2-cycle gas and gas trimmers are heavy after a lot of use. And I'm not a fan of cordless ones either due to battery life. Once I took this thing home and plugged it in, I was honestly stunned at how much power it had. I'd put it right up there with a gas one. People have complained about the line feed but I haven't had any problems when refilling it with line myself.

Pros: Very powerful. Please, please, please people, wear safety glasses or at least sunglasses or similar when using this thing! It'll fling the grass and weed clippings quite a distance.

Cons: Make sure if you refill it yourself to use .08 line. I accidentally bought some smaller stuff and did have the way-too-fast line feed problems others have mentioned. But only with line that was too small. Get the right size and you should be fine. My only true "con" would be the cost of replacement pre-loaded spools if you go that route. $10-ish for a spool of line is outrageous.

Do Not Buy

This product is a defective design. The auto string feed does not work, and cannot be made to work. Sometimes it feed string continuously, using a whole spool in minutes. This is especially true in edgers mode. Other times it does not feed at all, forcing you to disassemble the spool, turn of line, and hand cut it. Ironically, the auto feed is really not an advantage even if it worked. It is no trouble at all to bump the center spool to feed line, as all trimmers have done for years.

It is astonishing that this product was passed along through design, development, test and quality control. Apparently we can no longer trust that a Black and Decker brand will work at all.

Pros: MIght make a good looking, non-functioning stage prop that looks just like a real string trimmer.

Cons: Cannot be used at all because line feed does not work.

Many justified complaints about the AFS. Black and Decker's indifference is perplexing.

There's a market for generic replacement trimmer heads that allow you to insert short sections of line as needed. The reason is they are simple, they work, they don't waste line, and actually require less user intervention than bump-feed or AFS systems. But they only seem to be available for gas trimmers. The word has been out from customers about B&D's AFS system for a while now but they are not listening or don't care. Yes the GH3000 is powerful for an electric and well balanced. But this does not make up for Black and Decker's indifference.

Pros: Powerful for an electric. Well balanced with the motor in the handle.

Cons: AFS is less than worthless.
