    Pros: Inexpensive
    Cons: Auto feed doesn't work well, piece of junk

    Summary: We purchased the 12 inch Electric Trimmer model 51355 last year to take care of the weeds that grew along the fence and the house. We chose the Toro brand because we had a Toro lawn more so it matched our lawn mower and was a brand that we trusted. The ... read more

  • Toro electric Trimmer - Does the job, but was no match for Weedzilla

    Apr 22, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: versatile, great at edging and everyday weed trimming, easy to reload, inexpensive
    Cons: not powerful enough for heavy-duty de-weeding

    Summary: Weeds come in all shapes and sizes. And when our house was first built, we have weeds that were actually trees. Little trees with tough stems. I've been using the Toro Electric Trimmer for years now and I've always had success with normal grass and ... read more

  • So much for brand loyalty!!!

    May 14, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Good power cord retention device, not much else
    Cons: Faulty string advance mechanism, CHEAP construction!!!

    Summary: On the advice of a couple of the good advisors, I'm updating my review a little bit, to include more detailed information, as well as some follow up. I had the 12 inch cut model 51325. It is a corded model, but I don't think I could in good conscience ... read more

    Pros: cheap price,lightweight
    Cons: light power,jamming bump n' feed

    Summary: After 24 yrs of the manual feed B&D (finally bit the dust) I needed a new wacker. Well I thought a Toro was a good brand to go with (had their mower for 24 yrs with 2 oil changes and one spark plug). So off I went to the usual places to check out ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Light weight, small easy to store
    Cons: small line

    Summary: I bought this trimmer on some of the recommendations that I read here on this board. I am real glad that I bought it. I paid $49 for it and have used it 5 times so far this year. What it is: It has a real quality battery. It is ... read more

  • Only if you can get it cheap...

    Jul 11, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cheap, bump line feed mechanism works well
    Cons: Touchy trigger, quality and durability questionable

    Summary: I bought the 13" Toro electric trimmer on sale for $25. At that price I would consider it a good buy, but at regular price, there are better trimmers for the same money. After a month of use, the trimmer lost a considerable amount of ... read more

  • Toro Electric trimmer, If it would just stay home

    Jul 9, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Inexpensive, easy assembly, good warranty
    Cons: Less power than some other trimmers

    Summary: Before I purchased this item I made darn sure it had no legs. Every piece of lawn and garden equipment I have ever owned has miraculously managed to turn up at my sons home. Now he states he has no idea how said items got there, so I was left ... read more

  • Have A Totally Terrific Time Trimming!

    May 21, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Fast, efficient, quiet, lightweight.
    Cons: You'll run out of grass to trim before you're ready to stop trimming!

    Summary: My Dad has a gas trimmer, but it's noisy, burns a lot of oil and gas, and he always seems to be fixing on it. For my yard, I wanted a good-sized, reliable electric trimmer, and I've found it in the Toro 12" Electric Trimmer. I've got mostly ... read more

  • Toro 8" electric trimmer doesn't cut it

    May 14, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Light weight
    Cons: Can't handle tough grass

    Summary: Originally I purchased the Toro 8" electric trimmer for doing light duty lawn mowing. Since I live in a townhouse with a postage stamp for a lawn I thought that this would be enough. Silly me! The concept of using a whirling nylon cord to trim light ... read more

  • Toro trimmer not for me!

    Nov 15, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cost, weight, ease of assembly
    Cons: Switch, too short

    Summary: I bought this product to replace a 20+ year old string trimmer, so perhaps my standards are a little high, but this was definitely a clinker! First of all, just to be fair, the good points: it is light weight, easy to assemble, and the bump ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cheap
    Cons: Electric Cord

    Summary: This little weed eater is the one. IF you don't have allot of cash for one of those gas powered weed eaters this the Toro is the one to get. First it's extremely simple. There it only one button inside the handle that makes it chew up the weeds. ... read more

    Pros: Light, maneuverable and affordable.
    Cons: None that I've found yet.

    Summary: We decided we needed to buy a new trimmer. The old one had just seen better days. We shopped around and considered a few different brands and models (both gas and electric) and my husband was not convinced that this small electric trimmer was going to ... read more

    Pros: Good, lightweight usage
    Cons: Not for heavy duty jobs

    Summary: I bought the 12 inch Toro Electric Trimmer, thinking it would be adequate for use in my small yard. My main criteria here was cost. It was an economical purchase. I must say, right off, that the product is an excellent trimmer. It uses ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Any pros are far outweighed by the con
    Cons: Serious safety problem with motor trigger

    Summary: I bought the Toro 9" electric trimmer (Model 51241) during a spring sale at Target. At $29.99, it looked like a nice, lightweight, convenient trimmer for our home. Our house sits on a .25 acre, so we really have no need of a more powerful gas ... read more

    Mar 3, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Quiet, easy-to-use, convenient
    Cons: The shaft should be adjustable in length

    Summary: For several years I'd used a gasoline-powered "flying string" type of edger/trimmer. It was a big improvement over the corded electric edger I'd previously used, but all gasoline-powered string-trimmers are noisy, smelly and usually heavy and ... read more

    Pros: Easy adjustment for handle assist. Lightweight. Cost effective compared to other brands.
    Cons: Trimming positions are awkward for flush or straight up/down to cement.

    Summary: For anyone searching the newspapers for lawn equipment, you will find that most lawn tools are seasonal, there are numerous brand names/models and the prices can vary $100.00 or more depending on which one you select. After plodding through numerous ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Inexpensive, Lightweight
    Cons: Line feed problems, dealing with long extension cords

    Summary: I recently bought an inexpensive electric Toro trimmer, replacing an older Ryobi model that had bit the dust. This particular model is a combination trimmer/edger and is pretty basic. In fact, it's a little *too* basic. My previous edger had two ... read more

    Pros: light weight, cordless
    Cons: short trimming cord, not very powerful

    Summary: I bought the Toro cordless 7-inch trimmer two years ago when I was living in a house that only had ľ acre of land. I wanted a trimmer that I didnít have to fill up with gas or drag around with an electric cord, to get tangled up on obstacles in my yard. ... read more
