That's a subjective question. I used this trimmer for 2 years. Since I got 2 years out of it was it worth the price? NO, because I factor in the amount of frustration trying to get it started and keep it running.

well as far as walmart goes poluan brand and weed eater are the same product just different badges. the straight shaft with a bump style feed from weed eater brand is the best bang for your buck by far.

You get what you pay for these days. I've had a electric and chargeable weed eater and have found the best is the gas.
You need to look at how large is my yard and how much weed eating will need to be done per week.

a Twist N Edge. Walmart stopped selling it 2 years ago. I've tried 3 other trimmers but they are terrible. I guess I will have to go to Home Depot to get their Twist N Edge.. and I love Walmart, so it's hard to go anywhere else, but I guess I have to this time!

Question

How long does the string last?

I'd like to know how long the string inserts last when trimming. How many minutes on avg. do the strings last? Can you do a moderate lawn trim with one set? Also, can you use generic string of the right size, or do you have to buy Weedeater string for it to fit?
Thanks for answers.

Any of the appropriate sized strings will work. I recommend using a high quality string. The cheap stuff breaks to easily. Quality stuff will do the average Florida yard once. If you also use the trimmer as an edger. You'll use about 3 strings but it is worth it.

Simply tie a knot in the middle of string before putting in the head. This prevents the string from being pulled out of head. Also check to make sure it will not hit the cutter on the gaurd cut off any extra to keep it from hitting cutter. I do this and never have had trouble with string not lasting.

between 10 seconds and 3 min. and your lucky if it even last that long. the new weedeater brand head that they have switched to is poorly designed. the brand and model are great minus the new type of head. I would go with the curved shaft spool head. or switch to the straight shaft poulan brand same company and maker just more expensive and the better more reliable spool head.

Purchase a one gallon gas container and mix the gas with the 2 cycle oil. Follow the mix instructions on the back of the oil. This container will only be used for the weed eater.

i use a cap of the oil in the gas and if it ever gets too rich or bogged down for what ever reason use straight gas for a few seconds to clear out the gum up. don't do this for too long though. use only super gas not regular unleaded. it will help alot too.

It is not bump and feed. You will carry a supply of string 0.095mm in your pocket or another form of carry case. When the string becomes too short for practical use, just turn it off for a minute and easily pull out the remaining string and place in a holder for disposal, front pocket. Thread a new piece very easily through the guide and pull evenly and then fire it back up and continue on your way. I have just under a 2 acre lot and I use approx 3 strings for the hole yard and yes I cut around quite a bit of objects.

You cut a piece of weed eater string about a foot long and push it through one of two holes on the head. Push the other end of the string through the other hole and it feeds through. It's super simple!

yes, but it does bog down a tiny bit. Edging is extremely difficult with it, and it eats thru the "pieces of line" sometimes in seconds. I had to replace 4 lines on 1 yard last week! (NOT very happy about this product!) get a TWIST N EDGE. Walmart stopped selling it 2 years ago so now u have to go to Home Depot to get it. I hope Walmart sells it again, it was by far the best trimmer ever made.

I don't know if you can replace to a tap and feed, but I can guarantee that you will use more string on the tap and feed style, becasue it will feed on every accidental bump to the ground.

Yes, It has a fixed head. A fixed head requires that you replace the string when it wears down. Once inserted into the fixed head, there are two end s of the string that will cut grass.
