I love my new B&D Grass Hog trimmer.

I just bot a B&D Grass Hog trimmer. By no means trying to promote B&D products, but the automatic line feed is lotsa less messing around. I don't see any negative comments in the Usenet archives about the thing.
I bot the corded, more powerful, model partly because I figure the longer string gives the automatic line feed a better signal (the centrifical/centrifugal force is greater) so the feeding mechanism might be more reliable.
I don't understand how the device uses more string unless the length is let out too far. Apparently it hardly gets to the cutoff blade. I guess the problem could be caused by continuously slapping the line against something that repeatedly brakes it. A small price to pay for not having to mess with it. I think bumping is for the birds.
Assuming the thing works well as the first trial, this automatic line feed thing is the greatest IMO. I am going to make a spool holder for my electric drill (on very low speed) to neatly wind new string.

I probably should have put "automatic line feed" in the subject line to help avoid confusing the troll. My post was about the automatic line feed feature, not the brand or type of grass trimmer.

I bought the rechargeable battery model. It has its limitations, but I think it is a great piece of equipment.
I'd much rather use it instead on my Echo, anytime.
