  • Toro, Toro, Toro!

    Aug 14, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: can get Expand-It attachments, easy to assemble
    Cons: took two tries to get one that worked, bad trigger design

    Summary: It's not often that I give a tool that I pay over $100 for a second chance. In fact, when I buy something that craps out like this one did, I often look at that whole producer slightly askance. So, it was with great trepidation that I listened to the ... read more

    Pros: Worked well briefly
    Cons: Factory service is abusive and local service predatory

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Price
    Cons: Heavy, edger is VERY awkward

    Summary: What I really wanted was an edger. But, with my Ryobi electric trimmer on its last legs, I thought it would be nice to knock out both items on my wish list at once. Enter the Toro trimmer/edger package I found at Lowes for an incredible price, and I ... read more

    Pros: light weight, price, balance, low vibration
    Cons: lighter trimmer line takes getting used to

    Summary: My old Weedeater XR-50 finally bit the dust and I was basically forced to get a new one. After shopping around, I settled on the Weedeater Featherlite Plus, curved shaft. Price ($68.00) won out over the straight shaft ($88.00), face it, I have ... read more

  • One heck of a trimmer

    Jun 2, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Powerful Engine and Low Maintenance
    Cons: uses expensive oil

    Summary: In my opinion the Toro gas trimmer is the best gas trimmer on the market today. It has a very powerful motor, and uses regular unleaded gasoline. The only downside that I can find in the trimmer is that the trimmer uses high quality oil, which can ... read more
