    Comments about Weed Eater® Twist N' Edge Electric String Trimmer (966047901):

    Won't feed out line, tried changing to premium line and same thing. The second day I tried it would not feed out, I took off the cap and the spool was broken in three parts. It look like it was made out of the same strength plastic as the 1 liter soda bottles. I called the customer care and they said take it and the receipt to the service center, which round trip will be about 50 miles.

    Comments about Weed Eater® Twist N' Edge Electric String Trimmer (966047901):

    I use it to cut grass and weeds near our house in the Colorado mountains. Only limited use as an edger. It does a good job cutting the grass. It does not have an auto line feed where you simply tap the spindle on the ground & the line feeds out. It does have a manual line feed where you stop, push a button the bottom, and the line comes out. Other than that, it's an adequate weed eater for occasional use. I probably would get something more sophisticated and expensive for a house in the city and a real lawn -- particularly for edging. Ours is natural grass in the forest.

      Comments about Weed Eater® Twist N' Edge Electric String Trimmer (966047901):

      I've used this product three times. At first it seemed ok, but the more I used it the less it would work before it would stop feeding the line. By the third time I used it, I would have to stop every 30 seconds to pull out more line. It's a total waste of time and money. I'm not going to say I got what I paid for because the last electric Weedeater I bought lasted for eight years without any problems. I finally gave it away when I moved. That one fed by being bumped on the ground.

        This item is so difficult to use. Line breaks constantly. Hard to unscrew and add line. Every 5 feet need to unscrew and pull line out.

        Comments about Weed Eater® Twist N' Edge Electric String Trimmer (966047901):

        Just finished a 3 hour job on my front yard / hillside which was covered with 2years worth of tall grass and tree seedlings. Worked great, plenty of power. I had to stop to feed line by hand every 5 minutes or so and it used an entire spool of line, but it was a big job. Hande makes it easy to control and nicely balanced to swing. Will be using it all summer now.

        Comments about Weed Eater® Twist N' Edge Electric String Trimmer (966047901):

        I have used the Twist and Edge model for years. However ,since my old one burned up this spring I have replaced with the new model 3 times this summer. Eachg one works for about 20-30 minutes before it starts smoking and finally just quits working. I will not take it back for replacement again because it is not worth it. The store is beginning to think I am scamming them. I will never buy another Weed Eater trimmer again after being a loyal cutomer for over 20 years.

        Comments about Weed Eater® Twist N' Edge Electric String Trimmer (966047901):

        This product doesn't self feed line, which it says it does, so you have to stop about every 90 seconds to use the feed button. I have always used Black & Decker and now I know why. This item was on sale so I guess I got what I paid for. If you are only going to trim a small yard this might be okay for you but if you plan on edging...FORGET IT! I'm going to replace my broken B&D with a new one and toss this piece of junk in the garbage!
