Not just tough -- it's hyper-tough! As you probably know this is Wal-mart's store brand of fairly low-end tools. But they do good clearance this time of year and some deals like this can be pretty good. Especially if you already have batteries & tools of that same system it's a great chance to pick more batteries even if you don't really plan to use the tool much.

A few years ago they had some good clearance on B&D and also a Greenworks and so that got me into those systems at a low price. Lately my local stores haven't been stocking as much of that and so this year doesn't look like much gardening clearance happening near me..

I've even seen youtube stuff of people hacking batteries to other tool systems (assuming same voltage and similar size components.) NOT RECOMMENDED unless you know what you are doing. But might be fun.

Note line diameter is .065" which is the smallest size. I think B&D and other small trimmers are the same size line. It is fine for maintaining a well-manicured lawn of fine grass. Any little battery-powered trimmer would be similar.

The next size up is .080 which is quite a bit better (doesn't sound like much difference but it is in strength) and common for some of the middle-line electric trimmers.

Beyond that you get to much bigger sizes like ..095, .120. This is what you want if you are going into thick heavy weeds.

"Hyper Tough" is Wally's generic store brand for power tools and a few other things. It means nothing. Between this and the WorxGT, go with the Worx for cheap spools and batteries, but only if you have a smaller lawn without any serious work to be done. Its great for that. If you need heavier duty, seriously, get a heavier duty one. It'll save you time and frustration the truckload in the future even if you have to shell out an extra $50 up front.

I would rather get a trimmer w/ a plastic or steel blade over string.

I payed full price for this earlier this year and recently returned and repurchased on clearance for $25 along with a blower for the same price. It's definitely light duty, but works great for maintaining my small lot and doesn't beat the hell out of my aluminum skirting or painted wood shed. The adjustable head and light duty edging features come in pretty handy. Can it compete with a 25cc+ 2 stroke? No, not a chance - If I were to try and use this at my parent's place, it would probably be pretty frustrating due to all the trees, bushes, fences, and ditches to trim around/in.

In short - works good enough for Walmart shopping trailer trash like me.... But you may have higher standards. I would put the build quality on par with Worx's lower to mid grade stuff.

I'm going to see what happens when I jam some .08 line in when it runs out again - I have a 1000yd spool - literally a lifetime supply

You could duct-tape a couple steak knives to the head and see what happens...

And I've already learned something today. Repped for the insights
