Easy to Use and its Lightweight
I recently purchased this trimmer/edger and I am highly satisfied with its features. It gets the job done and the best thing about it is that it is lightweight and easy to use.

Satisfactory Product
Very good value for the money. For small to medium sized yards. Would not recommend for rough or heavy work. I don’t know how Ling it will last, but so far satisfied.

Fabulous For Light Weed Eating
I bought this last week because I accidently broke one just like it that I have used for years. I use it every week, Excellent for trimming grass & light weeds but don't expect it to handle a jungle. I have a walk behind trimmer for the heavy stuff at my daughters acre.

Simple trimmer that works great!
It's a cheap, simple trimmer that gets the job done. Been using it around the (small) yard for about 5 years now and have had no issues. Nothing fancy, but works well and at the price point its really hard to complain about.

It serves its purpose for me!
I brought this product recently from Lowe’s. I have a small yard and the weeds were growing like crazy, And I did not want to pull the weeds up with my hands. I did have a hard time with the instructions and was disappointed there was no cord. But I found an orange cord around the basement. After setting it up I started to use it. And it knocked down the weeds a the yard didn’t look like a jungle anymore! However when I tried using it around the sidewalk outside the yard. The line broke. And I had figured out how to pull out the line. But when I tried again it, broke again. So I guess the sidewalk weeds are thicker I don’t know. But I was more happy with the results of the yard.

Great for Light Work
My last one of these just died after 8 years of use. I bought another one today. If you expect this small, affordable trimmer to be a brush hog, then get something else. If doing regular household edging and trimming, it works exactly as advertised.

Solid and well priced
Great trimmer. Beats the heck out of the auto feed trimmers that just dump the trimming string out as you go. So glad I got this one; simple, effective, inexpensive. One summer of use so far and no issues.

Not as good as the older B & D I used to own
This machine is lightweight and easy to move about compared with the older model I used, but, while it trims well, it does not edge well at all. It's a good thing I still have an older battery-powered model I can use for edging. I wish I had read the reviews first.
