First impressions, very good
I greatly prefer the corded trimmer to avoid fumes and other hassles of gas engines. Well worth the minor aggravation of hauling the cord around. This one seems to be very well made. Everything worked fine right out of the box including the automatic feed feature. Have not had to change string yet, so no comment about ease of that process. My only disappointment is that the handle even at its extreme extension, is shorter than my old trimmer so it's a little uncomfortable (I'm 5' 10"). My last string trimmer lasted 35 years - dare I hope this one will?

Works Great
Use it for trimming around flowers, and trees in yard. Also for edging along sidewalks and utility access concrete slabs in yard. Like that it is light weight. I wish it had more line on spool, but with the extra spool included and by having an extra 200' of wire, I can always have one full when it is needed. With my bad back, the fact that it extends and is lightweight are great.

ok
OK- overall for cost/performance i would say execellet for general edging/trimming of small yards except for one major flaw to me.The line auto feed is poor at best.I though about sending it back it is so bad/doesn't really work.I would not purchase this model again.However I would give it the next model up a try becuase except for that (major pain in the butt issue) it seems to be well designed with good quality.

I ordered the 21212 String Trimmer Feb. 2015 through Amazon. I was using yesterday and the trimmer suddenly stopped working. I checked spool which did not appear jammed. Outlet was working (I plugged in another appliance to test). What do you suggest?
Thank you.

I have a 13" 4A Electric String Trimmer -- Model 21212, brand new. Used it this weekend for the first time & love it -- did a great job -- for 15 minutes then just stopped, bang! Checked everything, i.e, power supply, circuit breakers, string wasn't tangled -- anyone have any ideas? I really, really desperately need to get my yard taken care of (landlord on my back) & hate to have to wait while I send it back & wait for a replacement. Thank you.

Is there a non-string type attachment for the 21212 trimmer? I seem to have a lot of problems with the string binding on the spool and have to keep taking it apart.

BEST ANSWER: Greenworks does not make a non string trimmer attachment for this unit.
