Rated 4 out of 5??by Shiro So far so good
This trimmer is a little heavy. The motor is very powerful and the unit is easy to use. It is difficult to get into tight spots due to it's size.

Rated 5 out of 5??by chelseasdad Heavy Duty
This trimmer appears to be well designed and constructed. The component parts seem to be heavy duty. Our old Toro trimmer is nineteen years old and is used regularly. It still operates well but we purchased this unit to help manage some heavy weeds and field grass at the rear of our new house. It is too early to comment on long term durability but right out of the box it looks like a quality trimmer.

Works great, powerful, love the fact that it functions as both a trimmer and an edger, easy to use

Rated 4 out of 5??by Frank172 Quality is obvious
Very well engineered. This was a replacement for an ancient Toro Electric that served me well for almost 15 years. It's a little heavier than my old one, and perhaps a little noisier, but it more than makes up for it with its power, edging ability and auto string delivery. I'm learning to love it.

So far it's been working well, but it's pretty heavy so I bought a harness for it. My handyman had trouble with rethreading the spool, he said it was really complicated. I bought a different twine that came highly recommended and hope that it will be more durable that the one that came with the trimmer.

Rated 2 out of 5??by Ron1860 Auto-Feed is a problem
The unit has plenty of power and cutting ability. However, the auto-feed leaves a lot to be desired. To advance the string you stop, wait 2 seconds, then start... Most of your time will be spend doing this. Or, you can turn the unit upside-down and press the button and pull the strings out. I find myself doing this more than actually using the unit.

Rated 1 out of 5??by Michael70 First time "Toro" Electric Trimmer/Edger (51480)
Easy assembly, good warranty and easy to use. Switched to a Toro product through a knowledgeable and highly recommended retail person.
Looking forward to a better and longer lasting product with "Toro", as I had previous disappointments with many other Electric Trimmer/Edger.
Criteria does meet the overall rating of: Dependability, good performance , easy to use and good quality.

Took this product out of the box, assembled according to directions and used for maybe 10 minutes. After talking to Toro I was told the piece that broke was not a service part. The cartridge where the string comes out broke. However in their defense they directed me to a toro dealer and they worked with me very well . I am supposed to be receiving a new one but after over a week that has not happened . When I get my new one hopefully it will be better and if so I will definitely change my review.
