" I purchased the Better Heads LLC Pivotrim Pro Trimmer Head, as a replacement to the spool trimmer head that was original to my trimmer. The product is very easy to install and works great. The trimmer string is strong and goes a long way. No hassle replacement makes trimming a breeze. "

" Easy to mount and use. Only used 2 strings instead of the 4 shown. Strings last much longer and easier to replace than tap reel "

Much more effective than OEM head

" My Stihl trimmer head was constantly getting bound up and required removal of the head nearly each time. I tried various string installation techniques and followed the manufacturer's recommendations but the result was always the same. This was very frustrating. I finally purchased a unit from Stihl that's similar to this design but it was also ineffective- string would just fly of out he head in few minutes. I've had ZERO problems with this unit-- it works exactly as advertised and let's me get the most out of my string before replacing it. FINALLY, a solution that worked!! "
