Gh1100 replacing gh1000,
This review is from: Black & Decker GH1100 14-Inch 7.2-Amp Dual Line Corded String Trimmer (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Lawn & Patio)
I contacted Black and Decker on their website about the gh1100. They verified that it will be replacing the gh1000 that has had many poor reviews. I asked what was different between the two models and what improvements were made. They replied, but their reply consisted of pasting in identical "selling propostions" for the two items. Since they did not provide any information about improvements, I must assume that no improvements were made. When I tried to reply to their email, carefully following their instructions for replying, I got a "failure notice". It seems that Black and Decker does not provide a correct email address for replying.

This was NOT a "silly" review. The writer is correct that Black & Decker provides no information on the "new" GH1100 (or the 2000), on their website. Why would anyone buy another of this trimmer if it hasn't improved?

STILL "silly" if no experience with the actual product.

CAVEAT EMPTOR: per servicenet.dewalt.com, the web site that sells replacement parts for Dewalt, Black and Decker and other associated brands, the GH1000 type 4 (last rev made) and GH1100 type 1 (item under review) share many common parts (drive pulley, belt, tube assy, flex shaft, spool housing), so the problems associated with GH1000 t4 may also occur with GH1100 t1. Note that motor assembly is different per the parts website, so maybe the GH1100 won't have as many problems with melting of the pulley and drive belt. The Spool Housingthat contains the line advance mechanism is IDENTICAL on both models, string feeding / excessive string consumption will be the same for GH1100 and GH1000.

It's weird to me, too, that you would give a review for a product you haven't used. You can review their PR, which clearly sucks for this product, but you can't judge a product on that.

Consumer Reports: "It replaces the GH1000 that was subject to two Consumer Product Safety Commission recalls."
