My Bosch Easy Trim strimmer works well for about two metres of lawn edge. Then the 'tap feed' mechanism fails, and I have to remove the spool and re-thread the nylon line. The plastic ring on the spool has a small hole through which the nylon cord passes. With use, this hole soon elongates and causes the nylon to snag, and refuse to feed. I have replaced the spool twice ... same problem each time. I thought that the Bosch name would guarantee a quality product. Sadly, this is not so in the case of this implement. My recommendation? Do not buy one of these.
