    Light weight. Easy to use.
    I bought this yesterday and used it to trim and edge my lawn. I love how lightweight it is and how easy to transition from trimmer to edger. At first , I had issues with the line but after I redid the spool with new line, I had no troubles. I really love this!

    Exactly what I needed. Lightweight and does a bang up job! The string doesn't break and the auto feed is great. Truly a blessing. I was having so much trouble with my old Craftsman and it's thin line breaking every 3 seconds.

    I don't have anything else to add that hasn't already been said on here. Spool is a piece of junk. Motor is right at your hands and the vibration is so bad that if I am fortunate enough for the spool to work and I can use this my hands tingle for 10 minutes afterward. This product should have been recalled the minute someone tried to use it. This is bad enough that I will never buy a black and decker product again for anything. "How often do you use this product?" Should really be never because it DOESN'T WORK.

    This is the worst product I ever bought. The feeder line mechanism was poorly designed. The line keeps on feeding so the line keeps on entangling. I wasted my money on this product. Now I have to look for a new edger. Please don't buy this product or you too will be sorry. I don't think I will ever buy a Black and Decker product again after this experience.

    Doesn't work at all. If you want to waste your money please buy it.

    I previously owned the B&D GrassHog which used .065" line and it worked well. It wore out so I found the GH3000, thinking it would be similar. Requires a 14 gauge extension cord for 100 feet which makes everything much heavier to use. The .080" line rarely lasts for one trim of the yard and refilling the spool is a major pain.Seems that B&D have new engineers designing products which they never use themselves.

    Excellent trimmer - very good auto-feed
    I've had this for two years now and it's worked as advertised. The line feeds automatically with two brands of line that I've bought. Twice I did have to remove and re-orient the line when it broke inside the spool, but that's over a period of quite a bit of trimming. It's much more powerful than my previous corded electric trimmer, which burned out while working in some too-heavy weeds.

    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.

    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.
