Does Pivotrim Really Work?

Pivotrim, powered by gas, makes string trimmer heads simple to use and they claim that this has been missing for quite some time now. PIVOTRIM is said to be a winner over other conventional trimmers because it claims to take out pools of twines. It supposedly saves time and money because it keeps the lines from breaking. Banging the PIVOTRIM on pavers, smashing it on walls or even edging it on driveways, the lines will not break. Pivotrim cuts through plywood easily without breaking a single line. They contend that the PIVOTRIM can cut through metal sheets without it’s lines breaking. It is the patented pivot action that protects and safeguards the trimmer line.

No - Totally unimpressed

Makes your 17″ trimmer a 14″ trimmer. A waste of money. I put my old bump head back on and can trim twice as fast with 2 lines, rather than 8. Totally unimpressed!

I hate “as seen on TV” products. I think 90% of them are gimmicks. I thought the same of Pivotrim until a few guys at work told me how awesome it was. I wanted to replace my Echo rapid loader head with a tap head because I was sick of having to manually replace lines when they wore out or broke…on average 3 or 4 times per time when trimming my yard.

Bought the Pivotrim at home depot and used .105 line. Installed it in about a minute…hardest part was finding which nut to use in the bag. This thing is a monster. Cutting power was ever so slightly reduced (I used to cut at idle, now I have to give it a tiny amount of gas), but I did my house, fence, landscaping, edging, and all the tough weeds growing in the cracks in the curb and sidewalk. Didn’t change lines even once. It’s an amazing product…if you don’t have one, get one.

They make a 2 bladed version for curved shaft, and the 4 bladed is for straight shaft. Ignore this. The 4 bladed will work on curved shaft trimmers also.

This thing is great. I NEVER buy stuff “as seen on TV” but I’ve had trimmer string nightmares. I bought, they sent, installed in under 1 minute, plenty of power, long life strings. It’s a bargain at their price. WOW
