Rated 2 out of 5??by FrustratedinOhio Heavy, Hard to use and will not manually advance the line
Had to replace a Toro electric trimmer that we had for 15 years. Choose a electric one again. Very particular about the trimming of the yard. This thing is heavy, bulky and will not manually feed the line. It is very frustrating each time we use it. It is powerful, and will kick up stones and debris in your face, so be careful. I want to send it back, but have tried to use to use it for the last month or so. So now it is covered in grass trimmings. Don't buy this trimmer, use your money on another one instead. Beware.

Rated 4 out of 5??by CIC1 This prodct at least works
I found that this trimmer worked as advertised. The only thing I have found that bothers me is the line feed. until you figure out that the red button on the spool only lets you move the string out a few millimeters at a time and that it doesn't always auto feed other then that it cuts with the best of them. the only thing I am not satisfied with is the way the cutting head swivels. a quick release would have been better then the slide provided. I had another Toro before that only lasted twenty years before it quit. It still runs but the auto feed stopped years ago. If this one last as long then I will satisfied.

Rated 4 out of 5??by Goldie This is a very good product
I like your products very much. My only comment would be that the head is a bit heavy. It makes it difficult to control.

Rated 3 out of 5??by Potts92 It could be better
This trimmer worked very good the first month. Then trouble with the string. Had to stop every 15 feet to let out string out manually. Changed to a new spool and same results. I only recommended because it does work well. But the spool not releasing the string as directed is frustrating.

Rated 4 out of 5??by schatz this product very easy to use.
The only problem I have is the wheel button, it leaves the shield with the wheel assembly very loose. It is very sloppy, wiggles a lot in the edger mode. Wished it would be more rigid in the edger mode.

Rated 3 out of 5??by JoyFNapa Not Bad But, Not Good, Could Be Great
The Manuel seems to be written by someone who is unfamiliar w English language or limited expressing detail. Bad start! The machine looks great & has all best bells & whistles. Easy to install new lines (if you don't read the instructions). standard weed whipping works well. machine not as ergonomically friendly as one would expect. I am very strong, yet it feels heavy & awkward. After 1st time rotating to edging position it was difficult & did not rotate easily. very frustrating & annoying. In theory wonderful. In practice not so much. So, bottom
line an excellent trimmer & edger, if you can get it to
rotate. easy to change line if you don't follow directions. I am a writer & if asked could easily revamp directions to
make them user friendly. I think almost anyone could.
Price right, it whips well. Rotating to edge is along w
directions my biggest complaint. My partner will not
attempt rotating to edge as is so aggravating. As a weed whip operating on electricity it is superb.

Rated 4 out of 5??by Larry6 Great Trimmer -
I had to replace a trimmer that I had for 28 years... I chose electric, as gas is messy and rechargeable batteries will fail in a couple of years. So far this unit has been great. Lots of power and it cuts grass and weeds with ease. It seems to be well built, and I am hoping for many years of trouble free use. I trust the Toro brand...
