Very sturdy
I give this machine quite a workout. I am very happy with my purchase so far. I would like to add a brush eater to this if it is available.

reat trimmer/edger
I bought this trimmer to replace a two string unit that frequently jammed when feeding line. The B&D trimmer is more powerful and has a larger cutting swath. My favorite feature is the edging guide wheel. I get precise, even edges more easily than with my old trimmer/edger.

Good performance!
Love this trimmer!! Far exceeded expectations especially for the price. It outperformed my old gas trimmer. Also like the black and decker edger as well.

Auto advance edger
My auto advance edger advances my lawn to pristine condition. The old "tap advance" models are very difficult to operate and really slows up using the edger. Thanks Black and Decker for making edging a breeze!

I bought two
After buying one of these to use at my primary residence, I bought another to use at a second home. Both have performed flawlessly and I feel like they are a real bargain for the price.

Is there an attachment that allows electric to be used with my battery trimmer
DON on May 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No, this trimmer cannot be adapted to work with a battery.
Can you respoll the heads once they run out of line or do you have to buy already spooled replacement heads? I see they are almost $10. If you have to buy replacement heads with line on them already how quickly do you go through one pre-lined head? A month? All summer? Thanks!
Rocky on Jun 15, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can rewind the spool. Directions can be found on page 8 of the manual. Here is a link to the manual:,GH900.pdf
Can you tell me what is the name of the replacement string? I would like to buy the trimmer, but I can't seem to find what you use when the string runs out?
Ed on May 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The size of the line is 0.065 in. The model number for the auto-feed trimmer line spool is model AF-100.
The GH900 as an edger baffles me. I need a picture of what it should look like in this mode. Manual is very unclear. Even GOOD instruction would help.

Thanks much!

BEST ANSWER: Here is a link to Black & Decker's website. If you click under the picture of the trimmer on the image, you can see the edger in use.
