Stop looking around, this is the one you're looking for.

To put it plainly, I bought a house and needed a trimmer. I found out that unlike buying a lawn mower, trying to chose a trimmer was not an easy task. These days gas trimmers are more affordable than ever and battery powered trimmers seem to be all the rage with being environmentally friendly, light, and can cost much more than a gas trimmer. I have alot of trimming to do so battery powered was out. After using my dad's gas trimmer I found my shoulder was killing me after having to hold the engine end up to get the right angle. So it came down to electric for me. I initially was looking at buying this trimmer's predecessor which is the 7.2 dual line trimmer which felt great to hold as it had great weight distribution with the motor being located in the handle/trigger assembly. However it received many negative reviews due to the internal motor belt drive breaking and eating line like there's no tomorrow. I decided that I was going to buy it anyway because it was on clearance for $50. Then I came across this trimmer. No reviews. I went to Sears to take a look at it. The weight distribution is even better than the 7.2, it has a gear drive train instead of a belt, and has a single line vs. a dual line. It was only $20 more so I went for it. I got it home and pulled it out of the box right away and plugged it in. This thing handles like a dream. This trimmer does not discriminate. It destroys everything from grass to weeds to thick brush. The automatic feeding line is amazing when all you've used was a bump feeder. It's very economical as it waits until you absolutely need line before it advances and is completely trouble free. I have used this trimmer 6 times and it still is on the original spool of line that it came with and that is with pushing back the jungle that wants to overtake the right side of my house. If you can deal with the obvious downside of having a cord to deal with occasionally this trimmer will match the power of gas trimmers and save your shoulder. You might just have fun trimming the lawn for a change :)

Beware of Handle

The upper adjustable handle does not stay locked in place. When locked into a down position it can release unexpectedly to the full upper position, causing the cutting head to drop and veer toward the user. They need a serious fix to this handle! Maybe a lot stronger spring to keep the button from vibrating back in to a unlocked position. THIS IS VERY DANGEROUS!!! STAY AWAY!!!

very good trimmer


I've used this trimmer in 2 lawn cuttings during the past 3 weeks, and buying this more expensive trimmer was a good decision. Past trimmers had their motors in the head and thus less balanced.

This trimmer is used for sidewalk and garden edging and trimming along fences, decks, and around trees. It has worked perfectly so far. The only thing I don't understand well enough yet is what condition causes the line to feed automatically. You feel a slight kick when it feeds and have to re-adjust your position for the extra line.

Being able to trim and edge is a huge convenience, and changing the configuration takes about 10 seconds to loosen the clamp and rotate the head. The little wheel on the head is a convenient guide in the edging configuration and lets you rest the weight of the head on it.

Solid product with very few improvements needed


Very satisfied after the first season so far. Build quality and motor feel solid and it is light/easy to handle/transform, power feels decent. Only concerns are minor: Trigger is on/off only (meaning no safety hold button), the spools are pricey (but last a while), it is very short when edging - I'm around 6' tall and feel like i'm bent half over. But it does great in both modes, has a decent auto-feed spool reaction time and the guide wheel actually is just about perfect.
