I used it today for the 1st time for at least 2 hrs straight w/o having to replace any line. Trimmed along 300'+ of wire fencing; along several hundred feet of concrete walk/slab; along both sides of 3/4 acre (perimeter) hedges; around trees; around 5 structures; along stone walls; etc.

Was able to better control cut with this product. But I'm referring only to the PRO model - I did some online research & concluded this was the only model worth trying!

Only shortcoming: not good instructions for installation for my Stihl FS90 (but then again, it's only about 30 yrs old - which is why I only own Stihl products!) All the necessary items were included for installation, so it wasn't all that hard to figure out which hardware to use.

The PRO model is everything as advertised!

You can't go wrong with this product! Makes my Stihl a better product!

Bad design

Cheap plastic baseplate. Not for use for people who have rocks sticking up out of the ground. One touch destroyed the baseplate! My Ryobi head has lasted years in the same conditions....Read complete review

Cheap plastic baseplate. Not for use for people who have rocks sticking up out of the ground. One touch destroyed the baseplate! My Ryobi head has lasted years in the same conditions. Fortunately, the plastic pivot heads stayed in place because of the string stubs. Too bad, because otherwise it worked really well and the strings were easy to change. Until they make a better baseplate, I won't be buying one again. I bought it in May, so out of warranty, just got around to installing it now. $20 for 45 minutes use..... Not worth it!

    Comments about AS SEEN ON TV Weed Warrior® Pivo-Trim Pro Head (16642):

    Why this isn't standard equipment on all gas string trimmers, I don't know. Do the trimmer manufacturers think they are going to make more margin on selling string? Installs easily. Easy to load. Conserves string and time.

      Best Uses

      Comments about AS SEEN ON TV Weed Warrior® Pivo-Trim Pro Head (16642):

      Works as advertised. Heavy gauge works best, smaller lines just fall out. Four cutting line also increases the work load on the motor, careful not to over do it. Four lines reduced the rpms and in some cases I only use two lines to bring the rpms back up.

      Happy with it. Not happy with Ace, drove 20 miles out of my way to get this item since the web site said it was there. It was not. Then ordered and had it sent to my local Ace, I did not receive any emails from Ace, just called my local store about two weeks later and they said they have had it for almost two weeks.

        Comments about AS SEEN ON TV Weed Warrior® Pivo-Trim Pro Head (16642):

        Glad I chose this solution. Slow down the trimmer when working around chain-link fencing and the string lasts a very long time. It is like the string has a shock absorber. Can use any standard .095 or .105 string to save a lot of money. I originally cut about 25 strings for reserve but now I see it will take a long time before I use that many. Thinking about buying a spare.

        Pros

        • Easier Line Replacement

        Cons

        • 1st Line Broke Quickly

        Best Uses

        • Normal Trimming

        Comments about AS SEEN ON TV Weed Warrior® Pivo-Trim Pro Head (16642):

        The first time trimming the line included with the trimmer head broke off quicker than I expected. I replaced with some line I had, just cut to length and installed and that line (no thicker in my estimation) has held up better. Good product. I'll be buying as a Christmas gift for my brother.

            Cuts fastest and best with only 2 lines installed, even when using a large Tanaka Trimmer...also with mods will fit .105 twisted line, very quiet with twisted line installed. Did 300' of chainlink fence and still dont need a line change! Great product!

              easy to put on and i used it along wood fence and stucko walls and the line never broke. long grass did wrap around the head but didn't interfere with weedeating.

              I used it today for the 1st time for at least 2 hrs straight w/o having to replace any line. Trimmed along 300'+ of wire fencing; along several hundred feet of concrete walk/slab; along both sides of 3/4 acre (perimeter) hedges; around trees; around 5 structures; along stone walls; etc.
