    Why all the bad reviews? This machine is working great for me!
             
    I have a 1/4 acre lot and the GH710 is perfect. I have found the wire guide to be very helpful with edging. Rotating for trim to edge is very simple. Adjusting the length was helpful in creating balance feel. The dual-line creates a clean cut compared to the single-line trimmers I have had in the past.
    Pros:

    Clean cut, price, self feed line, ease of switching edge to trim and back.

    Cons:

    The fact that it is corded, but for my small lot, I don't mind dragging a cord with me.

    I Feel Validated!! Worst Trimmer Ever!
             
    I've bought .65 and the .80 line trying to get this thing to work properly. It sat in the garage for aver a year because I thought the failure was me but I've had and still having the same issues as the other reviewers. The line continues to wind inside the GH710 and is hard to pull loose as I'm a female. I'm stuck with equipment that doesn't work but a few minutes before the line is tangled. Black & Decker please help!
    Pros:

    I like the size and that I could shorten it to my height.

    Cons:

    The lack of usability.

    The worst lawn equipment ever
             
    I can't believe how incredibly frustrating this trimmer is. The string keeps coming out and winding around the shaft. I cut it off after about 5 feet of trimming so I am losing a foot of string every 5 feet. The idea of two lines is good in theory but does not work. The spools work for a bit but don't count on winding your own. You will have to buy the new expensive ones to even have a chance of making this work. I am too embarrassed to even try to sell this piece of junk. It belongs in the trash. I'd give it a zero. One star is too high a rating.
    Pros:

    Nothing

    Cons:

    Does not work at all.

    This product is not up to Black and Decker's standard.
             
    The trimmer started out ok,but then it came time to rewind the spool. It took quite some time. But now the string will not stay on the spool. It continues to unwind, wrapping around the shaft of the trimmer. I spent more time getting the string off the shaft then trimming and then there is the trim line that is wasted. Why couldn't you have made them all single string. Dual should not be used for home products.
    Pros:

    That it's lighter then the other models.

    Cons:

    The dual string spool. One star is being way to generous.

    EPIC FAIL FOR B&D !!!
             
    Purchased as a Gift for my father. It is truley a product liability for your company. The auto feed forces all of your line out and as it does this it shreds it. The shreds are small projectiles as well as the line winding around the shaft. Lets add salt to the wound - I was 4 days past the return date - "sorry can't help you but we can suggest a repair place for you". "You will need to pack it up and mail it out". REALLY B&D !!! I've spent enough money,time and complaints from my father do me a favor - do a recall and make good on your company name. I await a response from someone, anyone.
    Pros:

    It was the Brand Name.

    Cons:

    Auto line feed - Check the reviews for this item it should speek volumes! I could not leave the review without rating this product - where is the star that says SUCKS!

    GH710 type 1 is not worth putting in the trash!
             
    What a disaster! The line keeps cutting off and soon the spool is empty. Shards of cut line splayed all over the lawn and sidewalk. This thing simply does not work as advertised. I was constantly rewinding spools of line and resetting it only to have the line spew shrapnel all over the place. This trimmer is NOT user friendly and flat does not work. Do not purchase. B&D should have a recall and refund or replace this junk with one that actually works.
    Pros:

    Absolutely NOTHING good to say about a poorly designed, poorly engineered product sold with false advertising.

    Cons:

    Everything about this junk GH710 type 1 is awful. It is a waste of trimmer line, time and way too much effort for failure. DO NOT PURCHASE AND DEFINATELY WEAR LONG PANTS AND EYE PROTECTION AS IT IS A DEADLY PIECE OF JUNK. BAD BAD BAD! Did I say it was a piece of junk? Not worth the effort to toss in the trash. Black and Decker, shame on you for putting out such a disastrous piece of..., JUNK! One Star is 5 stars too many for this abortion of a line trimmer. Uck personified.

    Great edger/ trimmer out of the box and until you replace the spool.
    Pros:

    good job for work around a small yard.

    Cons:

    the replacement spool is a serious issue for this consumer. I've purchased two replacement spools and neither have not lasted to complete one day of yard work which includes: 38' driveway, 18' sidewalk, 16' garden and 9 plants. I've mechanical skills and know it not a operator issue and that is apparent from the other reviews posting similiar opinions of the replacement spool. Could someone from B&D contact me via my email address within the profile and advise me of how to correct this issue? Also, the major lawn/garden stores do not carry the .065 replacement spool and the only option is .070. Is this an issue that would cause this? If so, that is crappy business for a consumer to contend with, especially whenever that consumer has and uses other B&D products. I've advised others not to purchase the dual spool 6.0 Amp edger trimmer since this replacement spool issue is to costly an issue to contend with. Please advise.

    Awful, I'd give 0 stars if that were an option
             
    Great trimmer if you enjoy stopping every 5 feet to detangle the string from the motor. Wastes more string than it uses. Probably something to do with the automatic feed spool. Would NOT recommend
    Pros:

    Adjustable height and handle

    Cons:

    Everything else

    Worst B & D product EVER!!!!!!
             
    The line keeps getting wrapped around the outside of the spool unit. I spend more time trying to wind the line back on the spool than I do weed eating! Then when it gets closer to running out of line the worse the problems gets! I waste more line than I use! DO NOT buy this product!!!!!
    Pros:

    Can switch from edging to trimming easily

    Cons:

    The line gets tangled up
