    Buy a different electric trimmer

      Comments about Black & Decker® Electric Trimmer (ST4500):

      As some of the other commenters have mentioned, you'll burn through a bunch of .065 line. The bump feeder tends to catch the line way too much and you'll end up having to manually pop it open and feed the line more than you really should. When the bump feeder portion is working optimally, you'll do great trimming for light grass, but anything marginally thick will laugh at you. You don't have the option of replacing the head with something better either. You're stuck with what you have.

      And, if you tough it out like me, you'll discover that while the bump spool can be found everywhere, the bump cover that hold everything in place, and will break first due to the large amount of use, doesn't exist anywhere but online for about $10 or more.

      Skip this product in favor of something with thicker line.

      Not worth it even with the low price tag

        Comments about Black & Decker® Electric Trimmer (ST4500):

        This product won out over a few others simply because of the low price tag. I had not done much in the way of landscaping before I purchased this product so I overlooked some flaws that I should not have overlooked. By far the biggest flaw with this product is the fact that the maximum recommended line diameter is .065 which is much too thin. The result is that you spend as much (or more) time feeding and changing line as you do actual yard work. The frustration caused by this poor design and the money you spend on replacement line far exceeds the savings over buying a better weedeater to begin with.

          Comments about Black & Decker® Electric Trimmer (ST4500):

          Bought this one year ago and used it throughout last summer and fall, and the beginning of this year. Worked great last year, but in one week this spring, the guard fell off, the orange cap holding the string cartridge blew apart, and the little lever inside the hub that both propels the string and retards it fell off somewhere in the tall grass. [...]. Think next time I will spring the extra money and get something sturdier.

            The guard is held on by one screw and a thin piece of plastic which breaks easily. Best to avoid this product.

              Comments about Black & Decker® Electric Trimmer (ST4500):

              Have had the trimmer for 1 year and have used it, maybe 5 times. It would only take about 15 min to edge my yard if everything worked well. Have gone through 1+ spools of line. Line constantly breaks or cuts its self just outside the spool. Have to rethread several times. The 15 min job takes about 45 min. Yesterday, after putting in a NEW factory wound spool, the line broke 4 times before it jamed and cannot be removed. If it costs more than $5 to fix, it will have a new home in the local land fill!

              Comments about Black & Decker® Electric Trimmer (ST4500):

              For the price you could buy one of these and not feel too bad in a year or two when it dies and you throw it out. Easy to use right out of the box. Wet grass and weeds seem to stick on the inside of the shield, but that didnt seem to affect the performance.
