I owned this "grass trimmer" for a year until I realized that I was endangering my neighbors, their property, pets, children, and bystanders with every use. I was also confused about why my neighbors' gas- and battery-powered weed whips were relatively quiet compared to my nuclear model. Imagine my humiliation as I had to don ear protection when using mine and they did not when using theirs'. Why did this 7 amp corded trimmer make more noise than my 11 amp corded B&D lawn mower?Read more ›
Got it home and so anxious to try it. First use produced damage to our picket fence--blamed it on operator use. Then the grass got scalped really bad. Again, operator issues. Quickly ran out of line. Replaced with the $10 reel. Husband couldn't figure out what was "biting" his legs--thought it was some over aggressive bugs until he noticed his legs were bleeding from the shards of string line regularly whipping off & hitting him. Same issues wearing long pants, but who's going to be doing that in 90 degree humid weather?
Wasn't aware there were issues with how the lines were wound--anyway we hadn't wound the reel that scarred his legs. Today, he tried to use the product again and wasted several hours trying to make this piece of JUNK work properly. Wonder if Consumer's Reports had average Joes try using this product under normal circumstances. Bet they didn't, or they might have requested a recall. Too late for us to return it, and too afraid to sell it at a garage sale for fear someone might lose an eye or suffer permanent damage to their limbs.
Save your money!!! People write these reviews for good reasons. Wish we had looked more closely at what users had to say rather than Consumer's Reports.
It's also extremely light! As a 60 year old woman with multiple back surgeries, I really need a lightweight trimmer. This does the trick. I'm on my second year with the 1100 and the only problem I've had is the divider in the spool has come loose and winding new line is problematic. I bought it at Home Depot and they do not carry any replacement spools!! That's unforgivable for a product they sold just last year.
The trick to winding the line correctly seems to occur at the very beginning. Instead of bending the line severely into an "L", I just make about a 45 degree bend and hook it so that the start of the line lies flat. In that way the rest of the line can be wound neatly, flat, and without any crossing over (which causes jams and broken line).
I have about 3/4 acre of lawn (front and back) and have 18 pecan trees, 29 holly, and 6 flower beds so you can see that right there I have a lot of trimming.
All in all I like this tool and would buy it again. I'd just buy a few extra spools at the time of purchase!

Cutting cords don't work. They do not continue to extend as cord is used up. Way too fast. Speed needs to to be slower for some operations.Published 17 months ago by ndeanploss
