Rubbish. Dont buy

published

I've had this trimmer for more than a year and it has been a terrible experience. Line tears off after 15 seconds of use and takes couple minutes to set it back up. Buy one with proper line not this cassette crappy one

Purchased in May 2017 at Sydney Wide Chiropractic for $100.00.

use of

published

quite a good product, Only problem is that I have not been able to find a suitable harness to support the weight.
It becomes rather heavy to use but it is a useful tool . The replacement spools are easily fitted although are a little costly overall it is a good tool.

Lots of grunt

published

Cuts well with a lot of power. I feel the line will wear out too quickly relative to the 18.8 V battery unit my daughter has. But, the replacements spools seem inexpensive enough ... however, I guess that depends where you buy them.
The mode where one edges is not as good as the trimming mode.

Line auto feeding like milking

published

It's powerful and cutting nicely. But few minutes will run out all roll of line. You had take time to clean up all short line rubbish in the grass. It's a milking machine I believed.

I don't now, and would ask at Bunnings.

I would avoid trying to use a different line. I was told that they 'should' work but when I tried it, I found it to be an expensive failed experiment.

auto line feeding - how do you load the line onto the spool?

Click the spool out and buy a new spool (twinpack) from Bunnings.
