Do not buy this product!
I write this having spent last evening in hospital. When my previous B&D strimmer died after several years problem-free service, I bought this Bosch model about a month ago expecting the quality normally associated with the name. As with other reviewers, I found the spool very difficult to remove, and the line would break constantly, necessitating stops every few metres.
Yesterday, 5 minutes after grumbling about the device to my wife, the whole spool mechanism flew off in use, with bits of plastic hitting me in the face and eyes.
I have facial cuts, and lacerations to the surfaces of both eyes. A trip to my local A&E and transfer to the eye dept of another hospital have made me realise I am lucky not to have lost my sight. There is really nothing more to say.
