Absolutely changed my mind about weedeating

This assembly has changed how I feel about weedeating.  It's incredibly easy to change out lines and the lines themselves actually last a pretty long time.

I absolutely recommend this attachment to anyone who does their own edging.  It relieve so much of the frustration when dealing with spools of line.

JUNK
I hate this trimmer head. It came on the 32cc I purchased last year. I work for a professional lawn service part time and this thing would never make it. First, you waste 6 inches of line every time you change it. Second, I would spend more time changing the line rather than getting the work done. On average I would change the trimmer line once every five yards using the Stihl with a bump and go. But just doing my yard with the "hassle free" I have to replace the line 4 or 5 times. AND!!! Don't try to edge with it. I edged my driveway with it the other day and had to cut 6 pieces of line to get the job done. Entirely too slow. The 32cc trimmer is great, but the head is junk. I'm going to Sears Saturday to see about finding another trimmer head. If not, I'm buying an aftermarket bump and go. I gave it one star because you can't give it a zero.

Weed eating so easy

The Hassle Free III Trimmer head makes weed eating so easy. There is no line to wind or unwind. You just change out the line when you run out. Just like the title says it is hassle free.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Not compatible with all Craftsman line trimmers.

I find it odd that this product is not directly compatible with all Craftsman line trimmers. I have an electric Craftsman line trimmer purchased in 2012 that I had to completely disassemble and make a trip to the hardware store to get this product to work with my model. Luckily, the part only cost me under 50 cents. Not sure why they include virtually every nut, washer, and bolt to make this product seem universal but can't include a metal or nylon spacer. I think I'd be willing to pay an extra 50 cents to have it included in the package. Anyway, after disassembling, cleaning, and "modifying" my Craftsman line trimmer with a nylon spacer on the shaft to accept this accessory, I'm pretty happy with the purchase. It is quieter and the line is scores more durable. Changing is quick.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Can't stand it.

Whoever came up with idea should be fired. Why would anyone want to have to stop trimming their lawn every 5 minutes (I'm not kidding) to reload this thing? The bump heads are soooo much better.

Replacement head

Bought this head as a replacement for a as seen-on-tv product. This should hold up better as it uses larger and tougher line

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Hassle Free III Trimmer Head/Line

This is the best, most convenient trimmer head I have ever used/owned. Changing the line is very quick and easy which saves time in the long run compared with the spool type that continually get tangled, etc. I already own one of these hassle free trimmer heads and they are not only very convenient, but they are durable as well...I'm very happy with the quality.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
