I bought this for the value, but I would recommend it based on performance. It rocks! I was especially surprised how well it edges. Easy to use, very light and comfortable, plenty of power to get through all kinds of growth.
I just bought this trimmer today. Pulled it out of box
put it together in under 5 minutes, was using it in ten minutes!. It slice through a weed that was about 12 inches tall like it was butter. I read a review about the cord comming unplugged. I bought a package of 3 8 inch extention cords for use with power adapters to plug in power strips and plastic tie straps. Secured the cord. Works great. Thank you for all your reviews. They were the deciding factor. I am glad I listened to you guys.
I have to admit, I'm biased. Every B&D product I've ever owned has far exceeded expectations. I started out by reading all the reviews on trimmers/edgers this morning, because I needed to buy one specifically to cut down all the border grass around my and my neighbor's properties. I bought this one because I wanted quiet operation, power for tough jobs, and something that would last a few years. Well, I just spent about 5 hours outdoors working the daylights out of this thing, and it's just great! The auto-feed is perfect - no bumping! Can't wait til something grows up so I have to use it again. This would be worth twice what they're asking for it. Go For It!
Black and Decker Grass Hog, where have you been the past 5 years of my life?! I'm NEVER buying Weed Eater brand again! Suffice it to say that this product is more than worth the money. I have a smallish yard, but could actually do the whole yard with this without a mower. This trimmer cut through some fern that we've been unable to get even the mower to cut, let alone my old Weed Eater wouldn't even touch it and would shut down instead. This one cut through it like it was nothing. I actually enjoyed doing the job with it as it's so light weight and user-friendly. My husband is outside right now just to play with it a bit, and it's nearly impossible with the old one to get him to even touch it. Make sure you follow the directions and wear eye protection if you have a lot or tall stuff to weed. It has quite some power, and does throw it out and up, even with the large guard. Needless to say, I will be recommending this to all my friends and family. THANK YOU BLACK AND DECKER!
I've owned this product for a while, wonderful, except cannot finds parts when needed. Gone to Home Depot and Lowe's no parts,Not the one I need, which is the housing part, the part where the spoil set in. So i can not use the trimmer until then.
Need to provide housing unit in store which can wear out in time.
this thing seems like itll hold up for a while. we've owned it for a few months and it does a good job. 2 problems though...1st is the part where the extension cord plugs in...its ALWAYS falling out. ive figured out just wrapping the extension cord around the neck of the weedeater fixes this problem. 2nd is the string feeder. its ALWAYS getting tangled. i'll go half way down the sidewalk and i have to stop and fix it. SO annoying. otherwise good buy
The automatic line feed doesn't appear to work on my unit. I have to stop every couple of minutes to remove the cap, feed out some extra line, and then put the cap back on to continue. This may be partially my fault since the line spool came loose allowing a bunch of line to unwind. I carefully rewound the line but may have not done something right. Still, at this point, the unit is barely satisfactory so that is the way I am rating it. It is unfair to the product to either recommend it or not recommend it due to not enough use but the review system won't let me leave that section blank.
PRODUCT DID NOT EVEN LAST A SUMMER. BECAME OVERHEATED, SMOKED AND SEIZED UP. WISH I HAD NOT BOUGHT MULTIPLE SPOOLS OF LINE.
I bought this last year to replace the weed eater brand bump advance one i had for 5 years after it quit working. I don't like this trimmer. The line always gets stuck and doesn't advance properly (a problem I never had with my weed eater), and I even tried the factory wound line thinking I was winding it wrong...I wasn't, it's the trimmer. I do like the fact that the head rotates and not the handle, much easier, however that does not make up for the problem of the line not advancing correctly. I am currently online looking for a replacement.
I have used a Grass Hog for 8 years and it never failed me. I bought another one for my daughter.It does a cleaner, better job than when a professional does my yard.
I purchased this from the store to trim around my landscaping and my walkway. My nephew used it today and he cut my backyard, trimmed out my landscaping edges and trimmed my walkway. He was very impressed with it and said it worked better than the more expensive gas trimmers. He said this item was a 10.
Easy to assemble. Light weight and easy to use. I am 66 yrs. young and I have no problem using it. Does a great job. I only got to use it twice before winter weather set in. But I really liked it. You can't go wrong if you buy it. Love the automatic line despence no more taping to get more line.
I was doubtful of buying a electric weedeater my mother has a ryobi and i hated it, the power on it was very weak. I do not want the hassles of gas weedeaters anymore, based on reviews i bought this one. All i can say is WOW.
in 5 minutes we had it snapped together, and i used it for the first time today. very very powerful to cut the tuffest of weeds. when you have the trigger pulled all the way in, it is strong enough to chip the skirting of a mobile home ( i know i did). It also moved gravel around that was in my flower bed (pretty good size chunks of driveway gravel). Since i never used one i had to play with the trigger to get use to what speed i needed but i love it.
The cord did come out on me a few times but it is a corded weedeater its the price to pay im sure there is a way to keep it from coming out, but it did not bother the performance any.
All around it is a good weedeater and i wold buy again.
I like it alot and love not having to bump to feed, but was very surprised at how quickly I run out of line.
It was quick to assemble and easy to use. It's lightweight and durable, so far.
I would recommend it highly to others who want lightweight and easy to use.
after charging 48 hr. before using 1st. time, the battery lasted about 13 min.. will try to return today for gas trimmer.
This is my first time buying and using a weed trimmer. I found it to be easy to use (very lightweight) and it attacked a large number of growing weeds and plants. My house backs up to a lake and I have a lot of tall growth. I would definitely recommend this to others.
Over the years, I have owned electric and gas trimmers of various sizes. This trimmer gives you electric instant-on convenience with nearly the power of smaller gas trimmers. If you have the typical modest residential lot and Bermuda that you keep in reasonable condition, this is all the trimmer you'll need. If your lot is bigger and you keep a nice assortment of weeds, you'll want the portability of gas.
I have tried several different brands and this one works better than the others. And I like it because it has a single line feed and can be easily replaced with new string.
Black & Decker 14-inch Grasshog Trimmer/Edger Model GH600 is a powerful lawn tool guys. EASY to a assemble two for one Trimmer/Edger. Black & Decker has never let me down.
