Question: Trimmer Blade
Does the above blade fit on GH710 Black and Decker Electric String Trimmer
I love this trimmer, but I used it an area too thick for it to handle. It lost some power and dropping small bearings. It's turning too slow to cut and just spools out more line. Are there replacement parts available?
The manufacture does not supply the internal parts of the motor, where the bearings would be located. I don't know if it is even possible to get inside the motor assembly to try to replace the bearing yourself anyway. It may be time to look at a new trimmer. The only parts available are shown on the parts diagram of the model. If you click on the model below you will see what parts are available.
Question: GH710 Trimmer/Edger
The line supplied for this machine (.65) is way too thin and causes it to spit the line out like crazy. I went thru 2 $7.50 spools witin 15 feet of initial use. You should increase the line size to at least .80 so that we don't spend a fortune on line for this machine. All reviews I have read have to same complaint.
