Does the job...
First up, change the line to 2.0mm and you will be able to trim buffalo grass. This line trimmer is really only suitable for light cutting at best. Not suitable for dense vegetation.
Pros - quiet, light and affordable (currently $99 at Bunnings). Turning the cutter from horizontal to vertical (edging) is simple. Filling the line reel is easy. Length of shaft can be adjusted to suit your body height.
Cons - The auto feed means you can go through the line very quickly especially when edging. Only 3 metres of 2.0mm will fit onto the reel. The ca...ble holder clip (on the handle) is not suited for the heavier electrical cable and will take some strength to ensure the cable is properly put in place. Word of caution only plug it in after you have secured the cable to the handle clip as accidental activation is easily done due to the close proximity of the trigger.
Rubbish. Dont buy
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
Questions & Answers
line keeps unwinding when operating how do I set it
Hi Carl First of all, get the correct line for the trimmer which is 1.6mm twist Powerfit. Second, get the right length: A good way is to measure it from fingertip to fingertip across your body with arms opened out, then using the first line as a measure cut another exactly the same. Thirdly: Wind both lines on at the same time making sure they are anchored into the holes in the spindle and MOST important wind them on in the correct direction. There are arrows printed on the outside of the spool. Fourthly : Wind them on tight and line the ends up with the eyelet holes and pull them through to the outside. Hope this helps. PS There are instructions on YouTube as well.
