PIVOTRIM Trimmer Head – (Better Heads LLC – 1101PTC)
Superb product. I have an Echo trimmer. My original head was throwing line out, especially after hitting an object. Went to a local homeshow and saw a booth advertising the Pivotrim. Although skeptical about booths at such shows, I thought I’d give it a try. Installation was not hard AFTER I figured out that the threads on the shaft were reverse threads (turn CCW). Performance is absolutely superb. When it hits objects, it bounces back, so the line lasts much longer. It uses line that is .095 inches in diameter. Buy from Pivotrim outlet or just go to your local hardware store for any standard line of that thickness. Cut length according to your trimmer. It’s as good as the advertisement says!

Not quite up to the commercial, but it works.
For my Craftsman convertible trimmer the installation was easy. However, be aware that the line is not as indestructible as the commercial depicts. The commercial shows six inches of line along a brick wall and coming out with the same six inches. Not happening. True the line does not break but it does wear down quickly.
Although, I never had a problem with line breakage, bump issues and refilling were a pain. So this product adequately solves those issues. Not quite trimming heaven but I’m satisfied with PivoTrim until I find something better. Overall, I would say it is a worthwhile purchase.

Now having used it a few more times, I have had a couple of lines break. I won’t downgrade my rating, just letting it known that broken lines happen.

I was somewhat skeptical of this product, for it sounded too good to be true. Plus its commercial made it out to be some type of ginsu trimmer head, cutting through metal and such. I was desperate though, I bought a new Echo trimmer several months back with a speed change head. When trimming my chain link fence, I literally had to change the line every 5-7 feet. It almost rendered the trimmer useless.
So I purchased this Pivot Head. Looking at the instructions, which were somewhat useless, I actually had to pull out my trimmer owner’s manual to figure out how to pull off the original head. The Pivot Head actually seemed in many ways inferior to the original head I just removed; it was much lighter and made of less quality material. I almost didn’t even install it. Glad I did though the whole install only took about 15 minutes.
Upon first using it, it took a little getting used to, in some ways it has a little more give to it than traditional heads. It worked great, I was able to trim, and edge my whole yard without changing lines. It worked better than anything I’ve ever used along the chain-link fence; it even got between the links. Great product, I would recommend to everyone.
