    Don't waste your money.
    thing works so/so but, don't loose the spring that helps spool turn. you won't be able to find the part at big store chain.

    I bought this at the beginning of spring to use on my very small yard. I couldn't believe it when the string almost immediately ran out. I thought maybe it was because it was on the spool that came with it and it was just not very long. The next spool I bought did the same thing and it was expensive for such a small amount. I'm so frustrated - I'm a single homeowner on a very tight budget and can't afford to get a different trimmer.

    GH-3000 Grass Trimmer
    I purchased the B & D GH-3000 Grass Trimmer about a month ago and have been very pleased with the unit. It's easy to use, light and does a great job. You can trim grass next to sidewalks, like an edger or just use it as a trimmer. I loved this little trimmer until I run out of line! can't find any replacement spools anywhere, except on line. That is a let down.

    First and last b&d purchase
    The first time I used this product it worked fine until I ran out of line in the first ten minutes.. this is now the second time I am using it and I have refilled the spool 4 times in a matter of half an hour.. keep in mind this is also including the time it takes to despool it.. I would recommend b&d do a recall or at least offer a replacement to consumers

    Why no response from Black and Decker on this?
    Agree with all the reviewers about how quickly this unit goes through line and am wondering why B&D doesn't seem to respond. Is it because they know its no good, don't have a solution to fix it and don't want to buy back the ones they've sold. Perhaps there's a spring on the line feeder assembly that breaks right away? Would like to know if there's a solution to this problem.

    If they wanted, Black and Decker could create a product that was much easier and less expensive to use. Replacing the string is a major pain and buying pre-wound spools is expensive.

    Good trimmer for light duty work
    The trimmer is good for yard work but getting into rougher areas eats the string ( which is too small )up quickly.But for the money it is a good buy and I would recommend the re-conditioned one.

    The string trimmer Works
    I'm clearing several acres of weeds and brush on a steep hillside, and the trimmer works quite well. It replaces an old trimmer that died on the hillside. I've gone through two spools so far, no problem. I actually like it.

    I need a manual for the gh3000. is there an on line version that I can print?
    Ellis W on Jul 22, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: You can go to the B&D site -- blackanddecker -- towards the bottom of the page you can select manual(s) .. or you can try manuals.lib .... the B&D site allows for printing it free ... I think the other is a 'for fee' /// OK, just found out you can't type the .com after the site, but you get the idea, I'm surel
    The string keeps breaking right at the hub. Cannot trim over 5 to 8 feet without string breaking. It is wound correct because I buy new spools. Why is this happening and how can I get better results? I am ready to pitch the unit.

    New Vs. Reconditioned

    What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

    Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
    • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
    • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
    • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
