Replacement Spool Not Avaialble
Spools Not Available
Best Uses
I could not find a supplier or source for the replacement dual spool, size .080, for my Greenworks Model 21142 string trimmer. <br /><br />Despite providing all of the required information on the Greenworks company web Support form, including the serial number for my trimmer and the part needed (.080 dual spool), I received no response.<br /><br />I would not recommend buying this trimmer based on the fact that a replacement spool is not sold by Greenworks or any other parts supplier.<br /><br />I should have purchased a Black & Decker trimmer!

Not an Edger
Best Uses
I need a unit primarily for lawn edging plus a little trimming. I bought this one because CR rated it very good for edging. On arrival, it didn't look like an edger (head and handles don't convert, no edging guide). The very minimal booklet gave no instructions on how to edge. I called the company for info and was told they don't recommend using it as an edger. It might have worked if I had tried it, but I repackaged and sent it back, at significant expense plus the cost of original shipping deducted from my refund. I can't fairly comment pro or con on the unit; my complaint is with CR's misleading review.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Easy to Handle
Uses Lots of Line
Best Uses
Straight Edging
Trimming Around Rocks
Weeds &amp; Tall Grass
The power it produces is a fair trade off for the weight. Excellent for heavy going in weeds or tall grass. I burned out 2 other units in less than month each while this is in its second season. Dual line replacement spool easy to find and change. I far prefer it to my temperamental gas powered trimmer.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
