JUNK - Line Feed System is HORRIBLE

Jun 27, 2012
Review by  
Rated Show

Pros:Powerful for an electric, and the rotating head is handy.

Cons:The line feed system is horrible - JUNK, and the motor VERY noisy.

BUYER BEWARE: ALL of the Black & Decker 120 volt and battery-powered string trimmers use the same line-feed system and it fails all the time.  I get an average of 4-6 feet of weeds trimmed before it jams or breaks and I have to take it apart.  It is a TOTAL PAIN IN THE NECK.  I am extremely sorry I bought this piece of junk.  I was able to convert the head to an Echo two-string Rapid-Loader, and that works quite well, but it's a custom jury-rig and it took me some time. Shop for another product. I suggest the Toro might be better.  YOU WILL HATE THE LINE FEED SYSTEM ON THESE BLACK & DECKER TRIMMERS.  Also, my trimmer is not very old and the motor is making a LOT of noise.  I almost need ear protection because of the motor noise, and there is NO WAY to lubricate the motor.  I guess you're expected to put up with it.  WHAT A PIECE OF JUNK. You can read my review for the GH-1000 model on Amazon. This piece of equipment has cost me a LOT of time.
