    Anybody know of any good, high quality Battery Powered Weed eaters, where the spool is not proprietary so aftermarket attachments can be used?

    I guess I'll try the 36 volt Black and Decker.

    I'm sending the Worx unit back since it's too Mickey Mouse...

    After my neck surgery 6 mo ago I bought a B and D also. It was for my wife to use. I now pass on the bas operated Echo and grab the B and D. Easy to use and got an extra battery with it.

    Yes, I did buy the B and D 18 volt weed eater and it works just fine.
    I really like the auto line feed which has worked perfectly for me.

    Only complaint is that the batter doesn't last long enough... which is
    easy to fix as I'm about to buy another two battery kit with charger
    which will give me 5 batteries in stock the 5th on belonging to the
    blower I got which works pretty good as well.

    Over all, I'm very happy with it. :D
