My husband and I moved onto base housing and have a yard for the first time. Not knowing if we'll need yard equipment where we move next, we weren't looking to spend a lot. Also wanted to look at something electric rather than gas, since military moves will not transport anything gasoline powered. Thought $30 for a weed trimmer was perfect. Figured it wouldn't be the best given the price, but it was OK. The string was a pain in the butt from day one. It does not automatically feed whatsoever. I was constantly stopping, taking the cap off, and pulling the string out myself. But, for $30, I put up with it. It was only used one season, and twice fully this season. Our yard is tiny at 30x30, so the trimmer isn't even put through long heavy use. Today was the third time using it this season, and I got halfway through the trimming and it just cut off. Tried different outlets to check...nothing. Got a different extension cord that has an indicator light to let me know it's working, and the light came on when plugged in, but the trimmer still did not work. I know this was cheap, but I would have expected a few seasons out of it, not just one. VERY disappointed.
