          I was especially thrilled that the packaging allowed the string to be installed easily and the cutting tool worked better than a knife or scissors. Anyone who purchase string for weed-wackers know how difficult and challenging it is to install on the reel...the packaging helped considerably and the string worked well once installed.

          I had an Echo edger for several years and then the head went out. It was a simple task to switch out the old one and install the new one, but no instructions were in the package. I figured it out. This performed like it did when I first purchased the edger. It seemed like a good quality product.

          This was a good investment...I had some old ones that matched this one perfectly and was able to use them in the garage to put shelving in. This was a space saver.

          You'll appreciate the performance of this trimmer head from Pivotrim, which works with most gas curved shaft and straight shaft trimmers. The line pivots to prevent line breakage when trimming against hard surfaces such as chain-link fence, trees and concrete, saving you the downtime of reloading line.
           

          Will the PivoTrim X4 trimmer head accept larger than .095 line and is it made out of plastic or metal?

          I'm looking for a trimmer head that will accept larger line, such as 1.30 and/or 1.55 because I have to trim several acres of land.

          For the same reason, I'd like a metal head that will last longer than plastic.

          Thanks!

          Answer: 
          The head is not metal...it is hard fiberglass, but very durable. The holes that hold the line are perfect for a .095 line, and maybe the next size up, but no more. I use it for about an acre along tree lines, hedges, etc., works okay for that size.
