My previous post detailed my frustration with my gas trimmer having the line continually jam and snap in the spool. Further research shows I am not alone. So I am now looking at a replacement head, but there are a number of options, so I need some feedback. I have seen one by aero-flex that uses helicopter-like blades, and another named "hassel-free head" that uses 8" pre-cut lines. There are several more similar and all cost around $20-$25. I need something that can withstand an occasional strike to concrete edging and sidewalk without snapping. Any suggestions? Thanks!
"FREE" AERO-FLEX AEROFLEX Trimmer Blades - DIY for PENNIES EACH!
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE MY AERO-FLEX TRIMMER HEAD.
Except that the blades are so damn expensive.
I have found a simple and CHEAP DIY solution for pennies...
USE COMMON ZIP-TIES!
The expensive zip ties made of NYLON last longer than the cheap plastic ones.
Loop them around the pin, just like the AEROFLEX blades, trim them to length and you're good to go.
No more hunting around town or having to wait for them to arrive via mail order!
