Many consumers liked this trimmer because it is relatively light weight and did the job they were looking for. They had expectations of light weight trimming in small confined areas as well as along fence lines etc. It can be controlled with one hand in tight areas, by most people. However if you are not strong enough, your arm can get tired after a short time. For these people it appears that this trimmer does quite well.
Several had mechanical problems with the chord spool and using the chord rather rapidly. This was not a common problem, but it does happen on any trimmer from time to time.
Several customers compared this BLACK & DECKER 250W grass trimmer with 23CM swathe and bump feed line system with other trimmers they owned in the past. It is impossible to know if it was a fair comparison or not, however these customers were clearly unhappy with the product. Consumers should be aware that this is a relatively lightweight trimmer with no shoulder strap to support it. It will not do the job of heavier, stronger more powerful models.
Some consumers felt that it was better to spend a little more money and get a better trimmer than this one.
Whether you purchase this trimmer or a more powerful one, safety should always be the main concern. protect your feet with leather boots, never trim in flip flops for example. We also suggest that you should use safety glasses to protect your eyes from flying debris. The stronger more powerful the trimmer, the bigger the chance of flying debris.
