I want to get a trimmer this year since some fences have been put up
and now i have over 200 feet to trim along instead of just a small bit
along the edge of my house.
The best deal i can find would be from a Black&Decker outlet mall. I
like their trimmers and the outlet mall prices make them better than
any other brand i could get. Unfortunatly they no longer have even a
single model that uses the bump feed, they ALL use the new AFS system
to automaticaly feed trimmer wire when needed. Looking this up on the
net reveals a few people happy with it but MANY who had problems.
Either the system didn't work properly or they complain about how it
eats wire more quickly and requires expensive refill spools.
1. Is it possible to get a bump feeder accessory at a later date to
replace the auto feeder?
2. There are many kits availble that "fit most ordinary trimmers" and
use either plastic blades or just very heavy wires. Neither use a
feeding system as these blades/wires are supposed to be essentially
permanent and you just replace one if it should happen to break. Will
these kits fit onto the B&D trimmers that use AFS?
Anybody know? All thoughs appreciated.
