Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 89reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good power for an electric trimmer Very strong trimmer for an electric. This replaces an old "weed-eater" single string with .063" line. Women & older owners may want to consider using a shoulder strap as it does get heavier, after about 10 minutes. The line replacement is failrly easy with the AutoCut C 2 5. Just be aware that when loading line, it cranks counterclockwise. Unused line should be stored in a container or sealable bucket of water to keep the line soft. The line release needs a solid tap (not a gentle bump) at full speed to release more line.The trimmer is pricey. I got mine used. September 29, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by This product has great This product is good. Its easy to use. I would buy another one. September 28, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by It does the job. It's better than the well-known-brand competitor's trimmer that it replaces. Plenty of power.Contrary to other reviews, it is easy to switch between trimming and edging. Just swing the grab bar 180 degrees around the shaft.Line feed is difficult. You have to really bang the thing against the ground.The first (and only, so far) time I used it, the factory-supplied line jammed and I had to disassemble the rotor head to free it. Then I had to reinstall the line on the spool. That's not as easy as the guy in the hardware store made it sound. There are several tricks: (1) Make sure the end of the line is cleanly cut. Use shears, not nippers, which tend to flatten the line at the cut so it's out of round. (2) Make sure the end of the line is straight or it will miss the hole in the spool. (3) And be aware that if the line goes into the feed hole more than about three-quarters of an inch you've missed and need to start over at (1). I have hopes that once I get the hang of it, replacing the line will turn out to be easy.Edger function would be enhanced by adding a wheel. September 28, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Line Spool Very time consuming process, not clearly defined in manual September 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really good trimmer. I've enjoyed the trimmer so far it's well balanced and easy to use, battery lasts longer than I expected but we always want more, I use multiple battery products and really like that I can keep working just by moving the battery. September 7, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by simply Frustrating to Use In a word, loading and using this is way too much work. Had a tutorial from dealer. But it rarely releases line when bumped. It's probably operator error. I have gone back to hand trimming. September 1, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by restringing I guess the biggest thing is the restringing. I had hoped it would be easier and more efficient but this is not the case. Most of the time I ask my hubby to restring it because I don't seem to ever do it right. I wanted to get a blade for it instead of string but was told it can't be done. So bottom line the stringing of this is a time consumer and not all that easy. August 30, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this trimmer I love this trimmer. As a woman who does a lot of lawn work, I was tired of the tempermental gas trimmers and knew an electric was the way to go. This trimmer is light weight, but still has the power I need to trim a fully-fenced 1/3 acre. July 27, 2016
