Lawn Mowers and Edgers/Trimmers
We got sick of having to pay someone to mow our grass every month--they either did a half-assed job or came up with excuses for not coming to work--so we're saving some cash and doing it on our own.
One of my folks (I'm not sure which) purchased this model,
and I think it might have been an impulse purchase, because we're having problems with it: namely, the head is a piece of crap. The factory spool was poorly wound (a couple of the reviews mentioned it after I looked it up, so I'm not alone), so I thought I'd head to Home Depot to find a replacement. The problem is that they don't carry much Sun Joe inventory--they expect us to buy replacement parts online--so I thought I'd try a different brand. I found one that looks like it could be a good fit, but the problem is that the label states that it "doesn't work with electric trimmers."
Is there any reason why it would only work on a gas trimmer? It's a piece of plastic and you wrap string around it. The only power source should be your hands, right? Should I just buy the Sun Joe-brand replacement online, or can I use any head that fits?
