    Junk, I want my money back

    • Plenty, Australia,

    This is the worst thing I've ever bought. Constantly blocks up with grass and blunts the blades after about 15 min use. Tried to phone for refund but only menu options to buy. Best use I can see for it is a Frisbee in the park, and don't worry it's so blunt it wouldn't even put your fingers off when you catch it.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Keep your money.

    It does not work as advertised. Mine was grey and not black and a smaller ball underneath. A hint of things to come. The outer ring has a hollow slot all the way around it. It collects up debris and becomes heavier and out of balance. Worst of all, the blades must be sharpened with a file, A LOT!

    Debris gathers up in the blade and ring corners and it stops the cutting efficiency no matter how much you sharpen the blade the grass balls up in the corners. It becomes very heavy and your trimmer motor will struggle to spin it at full speed. The outer ring will scratch your lawn furniture or what ever it spins against.

    There is no return policy. When I called the phone number, there is only order options. This $36.90 is bound for the trash can.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Definately NOT worth the frustration

    • Vineland, NJ,

    The Orbitrim is a piece of junk. The blade is off balance and causes the trimmer to stall before it gets and speed going. It would cost too much to return it to Orbitrim for a refund so I'm out the cost of purchase and shipping. Live and learn. Good idea just poorly executed. Someday, someone who knows how to invent quality product will figure out an effortless way to edge a lawn. Until then, I will still with my string trimmer. I would highly recommend you NEVER purchase the Orbitrim. You WILL regret the waste of money and time. I gave it 1 star because 0 star was not an option.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Crap

    This is a piece of crap, doesn't work, couldn't do five feet of lawn before flying off the wacker. If you buy you will be taken for shipping and handling.

    Not too impressed

    You are just wasting your money. I want my money back and if the company wants the Orbitrim back they can pay the freight! I installed the Orbitrim blade and it would cut very little.

    Buyer Beware!

    • Jul 29, 2016

    I bought with some skepticism and rightfully so. After a relatively easy installation I was off to trim, or so I thought. The grass was not effected one bit by the metal blade spinning above it. After trying several different angles of attack I finally got it to cut the grass, all the while throwing it in my face. Finally the trimmer died and I watched my new Orbitrim float effortlessly across my driveway landing safely in the grass. Thankfully it did not cause any harm. I would not recommend this product to anyone and the manufacturer should be ashamed.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Beware

    DO NOT buy if you do not have a clutch driven drive shaft. Installed very easy on my McCulloch 765 trimmer. 4th pull on the starter rope finally started the engine because the drive shaft snapped.

    Don't buy this

    • Kempner, TX,
    • Jul 23, 2016

    Bought as an impulse buy at Walmart. Easy install. Engine bucks to start. Blade shakes the weed cutter a lot when at speed. Centrifugal force keeps blade turning after the engine shuts down. You cannot cut high grass at all. You have to go up and over and down onto the grass. Trouble is: the blade smashes the grass flat and will not cut.

    Have only used once around the yard. I would be afraid to use it sideways as an edger!

    I wonder if any of the company developers ever used this thing after they sent their blueprints to China. I perceive they may have said to each other, "Ooh, pretty! It should work fine."

    Can I have a negative star, please?

    Piece of crap

    This has been one of the worst items I have ever bought. It does not work at all and vibrates the machine excessively. Complete waste of time and money. Should have read other reviews before buying it.

    Junk

    • Greenfield, IN,

    Bought at Walmart this morning, will take it back this afternoon. The directions are ambiguous at the best. It lays grass down so it won't cut. This product is a piece of crap.
