Reviews

AutoCut® EasySpool™ Trimmer Heads (TapAction™) is rated 2.1 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from The C 6-2 trimmer head is almost unusable The C 5-2 trimmer head on my FSE-60 cracked, so I bought the C6-2 trimmer head to replace it thinking that it would be easier to reload. This was a mistake. The string broke inside the trimmer head after about 5 minutes of use. I reloaded the string and tried again with the same result. I reloaded again and could get it to last 10 minutes if I autofed the string every 30 seconds or so, but it eventually broke inside the trimmer head. This product is unusable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A mixed bag of results. Thought I'd try this rather than re-winding empty spools. It works, but not very easily in my experience. 'Digging in' your thumb and pointer finger or thumb and index finger to spool in, wrap line while turning head spool with your wrist can be hard on fingers--not very mechanically efficient, not a comfortable grip. If you could use your thumb and FOUR fingers at the same time as you might quickly use a small ratchet, that might be a whole 'nother deal.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The idea is there Like a few other have commented, the line is tricky to feed all the way through sometimes. The winding feature is difficult and hard on the finger tips. Sweaty palms make it hard to turn when winding line mid day. The idea is great, but an improved or different system needs to be engineered for winding the line. I used mine for a week or 2 really trying to like it and I now have my 25-2 autocut back on.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from These are awful!!! I have been using the old model of easy spool trimmer heads for 15 years and they were awesome, these new ones suck! They are harder to load, they are hard on the fingers when winding the line in, when line gets stuck inside they break easily trying to get it open. I would not recommend these to anybody. The old ones were way better why change a good thing?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of time and money Product with the original line broke off inside at least 20 times. No need to disassemble is a joke. Never got to use the autofill feature. Back to my original heads. At least the line doesn't break off inside.
