    I bought this 4 years ago and used it regularly each summer. Today, the motor slowed down and then started smoking. So, time for a new trimmer. The line getting hung up inside the head was a major problem at first, but then I figured out how to make it work better. When putting new line on the spool, I found out that wrapping it neatly was not good, for then it would hang up and break easily. It worked much better when I put the new line on in a more messy fashion, with every other wrap going from one side of the spool to the other. That helps prevent the line from being pulled down and getting trapped among the spooled line. Even with this though, the line would often fail to automatically advance; it only does so upon stopping and starting the head. At least there's a push button that allows me to pull it out a bit at a time. But then, I've never seen an automatic feed that worked well for long.

    This product is a piece of junk. On the positive side, it is fairly lightweight and not too tiring on the hands and arms for extended periods of time. All the rest of the review is negative. It is constantly breaking the line, it does NOT automatically feed through, and you are constantly stopping and removing the spool to either untangle OR pull out additional line. I had this weed eater less than one full year, with moderate use (about once a week on a small yard). It was only used to do edging and, if it worked the way it should, about 15 minutes worth of work each time. I would spend an HOUR each time because it was constantly breaking the line and I had to re-thread it. One day, after using it in the yard, the motor made a sharp sound and just quit on me. It had always been kept indoors and was well taken care of. Less than 8 months old and the motor went out on it. I would NOT recommend this product.

    I've owned about 6 electric weedeaters and this is BY FAR the worst one yet. When the line breaks, you can't bump it to get more line. Instead, you have to stop the wheel from spinning and then push a button on the side of the wheel and pull on the line simultaneously. The line would break every 10 or so feet. Many times, the line would break off completely, requiring you to pull off the cap, take out the line reel, unwind it, place the end back thru the wheel's line hole and then reassemble. I had to do the latter task three times within a fifteen-foot stretch earlier today. When it broke a fourth time three feet later, I gave up and threw it in the trash where it belongs. Everytime I've used it, this stuff would happen. DO NOT waste your money on this junk, spend $10-20 more and get something worthwhile. A different brand is recommendable.

    I've been using this weedeater for the past hour and I have to say I'll be returning it. I purchased this model to replace my old reliable weed eater expecting the same reliability, boy was I wrong. Most of my hour of "yard work" has been spent manually feeding the line, replacing the line that has broken off in the head (and I have to take the whole thing apart). The automatic feed simply does not work. wish they had the older model, at least it worked. I want to give it .25 stars, but i had to click one.

    We had this for one season before the mottor kicked the bucket. The mottor is only 5 amps, we are going to try a stronger one. The spool was a nightmare to try and put in and if you do it wrong, you will spend several hours trying to feed line through. You get what you pay for with this one.

    Is this Weed Eater's "Centrex" line advance? The Walmart description reads "Fully automatic line advance. Thank You, Ed

    • A. Yes it is but the spool runs out quick depending on how much it is used.

    • A. I was constantly having to manually feed this. I think there is a flaw in the design. I was under the impression it was auto feed but the line would break constantly and I would have to stop and manually feed it. I thought maybe mine was just a lemon, but I noticed there is another person who commented on the reviews about this. So I'm sure we are not the only ones with a lemon.

    • A. Yes,While I was using the weed eater I never had to bump it to get the line to come out,so it must advance automatically.

    • A. No It is not! You have to manually feed the line... I recommend you stay away from this model and the Weed Eater Brand all together. I will be returning this model and have had problems with the Weed Eater Brand in the past. I had a Ryobi that lasted for years and the Black and Decker brands have great reviews you may want to check those out.

    Can I rewind the spool with new line like my old Weedeater, or will I need to purchase new spools?
    by Grasshappy 4/18/2010

    • A. After buying three spools I finally just tore the cover off tried to put line on myself. It worked faily well, but not like it should. So I just went down and bought another one that I could rewind myself.

    • A. I think what you are asking is can you manually wind string on your spool. Yes. The spool even tells you what direction to wind the string.

    • A. Yes you can rewind the spool. However, the line that this particular model requires is so thin and doesn't last. Plus it does NOT automatically feed the line. Stay away from this and any other Weed Eater Brand trimmer this is my second horrible experience with this brand.
