Customer Review: Weed Eater String Trimmer
I have had other weed trimmers, but this one is by far the best. It is very powerful, but easy to use. I have a medium sized yard, and I've used it 4 times so far. The only thing that I noticed that I didn't like, was that I plugged it in, and accidentally had my finger on the trigger. It should have a safety switch that must be depressed at the same time as the main trigger. Other than that, it is a good machine.
Customer Review: hate the reloading
This is the 3rd Weedeater brand string trimmer I've owned. In the past I've always been able to load my own line onto a spare spool and change as needed while working. Not so this model, unless you want to buy a completely new spool for every line reload. The design of the model leaves no doubt in my mind that the manufacturer deliberately made it more difficult than it needs to be for the do-it-yourselfers and without doubt seems to be designed to encourage the user to buy pre-loaded spools rather than loading your own. Seems like an MBA somewhere decided they could do the same with replacement line as the computer printer manufacturers have done with the ink cartridges. I sure wish I would've researched more thoroughly. And I'm equally disappointed with Weedeater, a brand that I've trusted for many years. Not so going into the future. In fact, I'll probably hand cut before I'll buy another of their products. I would add that the owners manual clearly shows the old style spool when demonstrating how to load line. I defy someone from Weedeater to load line into the spool in a reasonable period of time. If they can, I will retract this review with complete humbleness.
