For this shady practice, they get one star.
Roy Johnson
If my grass trimmer had a bit more power it would probably work great, fairly easy to replace over my old grass trimmer head.
Matt W
This replacement head went on very easily in a few minutes and allows me to stick in cut pieces of line in seconds.

I put this on a gas powered weed eater (R)that I considered obsolete.
This retrofit turned it into a professional edger.
The change was very easy.

My original weed eater(R) trimmer head only had a single line.
The Grass Gator 8010 lets you load up to 4 lines.
It howles when I rev it up !!!!

Previously I suffered a lot of frustration (with the original trimmer head) when the line would snap and I had to take the original spool appart to re-thread the line through the feed hole.

The Grass Gator (R) 8010 made my day.
The packaging says it can handle trimmer lines from 0.095 to 0.130 inches,
however I tried a commercial grade 0.155 inch "rib-shaped" trimmer line and on one yard trimming the lines only wore out about 0.5 inch !!!

I used 0.155 Commercial Grade trimmer line made by Arnold LLC.
If you want to try out the same trimmer line I used - here is the link

First the good:

1) Once installed,(tightly!!) the trimmer head worked great
2) The line segments are incredibly easy to install

the bad:

1) They shipped me out of date assembly instructions, that referred to parts no longer in the kit - frustrating
2) First call to customer service for help was abrupt and didn't help
3) Second call to customer service was friendly and revealed parts/instructions disconnect.

I installed on a big box hardware store purchased Homelite Mighty Lite trimmer. After I installed the kit and started it up, all the parts flew off in my driveway. I treat this as my fault, as although I snugged up the parts well, I was afraid to overtighten due the my perception that a cone shaped adapter I needed to use was "flimsy". I then REALLY tightened them, and had no more trouble with the parts.

When I started using it, my grass was thick near the borders of flower beds, along the house and around trees (hadn't trimmed in about 4 weeks - I know - I know....).

I quickly determined you cannot leave four "strings" in the head with a low power gas "homeowner" style trimmer (mine is a straight shaft). The four lines bog the engine down noticably, and prevented a good trim. After I removed two of the lines, it was fantastic. I trimmed about 200 linear feet of grass edge and it wore the initial two lines down only about one inch. I am sure that a professional quality trimmer would have the muscle to use four lines effectively.

Overall, I confess to being very pleased with the trimmer head. My last head (standard manufacturer) jammed about every 20 feet, tangled lines and was a pain to use. I will NEVER go back to a tap and advance head again.

The Grass Gator head worked just great out of the box but eventually the original line wore out. I replaced the line with some .95 line I already had. Then the frustration started. The line broke or flew out of the head when I tried to cut any tall grass. The life of the line could be measured in seconds. I immediately blamed the new string trimmer head and was going to throw it away.I took a chance and bought some new Echo brand .130 Nylon line and "bingo", with the first use of the new line and head combination, I trimed a mile of pasture fence line using two tanks of fuel and the new line is still usable. I never thought the old line could be at fault but that was definately my problem. The Grass Gator head works just great with the new,fresh,nylon .130 line.

The "grass gator 8010 load n cut replacement string trimmer head" is awesome! I purchased this because my factory bump head would use crazy amounts of string and I was getting tired of rewinding the string so often. This new trimmer head was fairly easy to install. I have a troy bilt TB70SS which has a straight shaft but the proper instruction to install the head was under curved shaft. Still it only took a matter of minutes to install. Once I actually used the trimmer with the new head I was impressed. I did all of my trimming around my house on two 7 inch pieces of string. It usually takes me about 10 feet of string wound in the bump head. This also comes with thick .130 line which is pretty tough stuff. I recommend buying a roll of string and cutting it yourself rather than buying the precut lines, it will save alot of money. When it comes time to replace the string it only takes a matter of seconds. You simply pull the old piece out and slide a new piece in and it locks automatically. You can put a total of 4 pieces of string in the head at once time, but for my trimmer four pieces was too much and two was perfect. If you are tired of your bump head using tons and tons of line this product is for you.

The packaging claims that you can install this without the use of any tools. I'd agree with that statement IF the directions were at least somewhat helpful. The directions are so general as to be a complete disaster. I would recommend that when you open the package, take the instructions out, open them up and them set them on fire. It's all they are good for. HOWEVER, I did a Google search and found a support page of Gator's that had a video showing how to install the head on a trimmer. Although the video wasn't for my make or model it did give me enough information to show me where I went wrong on my innitial installation attempt. A+ for the video!

Using the new Gator is sweet! I like that I can very the RPM of my 4 cycle trimmer by using different numbers and lengths of line. If I want the RPM to be a little higher, like for cutting heavy Bromegrass, I install 2 lines. If I'm trimming around flowers et al, then I can add 4 lines and slow the trimmer down for better control. I can also play around with the line lengths too but I find adding or subtracting lines works the easiest.

Changing the lines is a breeze. You just push the spent line through the head and slide a new one in in it's place. The grippers work so that you can slide the line in, but it won't allow the line to pull back out.

I have found that sometimes the line breaks "inside" the head at the grippers which makes getting a new piece of line installed most difficult. So I make sure that there is always a little bit sticking through the grippers so that I can grab the bitter end with a pair of pliers. Sometimes I get lucky and can push the old line though with the new piece.

I don't buy the pre-cut line, I just use the roll that I have.
