Q: How easy is it to change line? Is it cut length or spool?
by Pete Lobato from Colorado on March 15, 2014

A: Pete - replacing the trimmer line on the Peco ZT-3000 is pretty easy. The replacement line is pre-cut to length. You can take a look at the owners manual on the web page for the ZT-3000 to see exactly what's involved in replacing the trimmer line.

Love It
I use the Peco z trimmer on my Steiner zero turn mower with a power deck. It is great. I can raise the deck with my feet, steer with my hands and weed whip fences, trees, and our beautiful terraces. I love the adjustment so that I can use it flat or horizontal, but I do wish I could use a heavier string. I have used it for two summers.

What A Let Down
Ordered trimmer waited 8 days, and was all happy when it got here , then hooked it up and sounded great. I have a thirteen thousand dollar toro now that has holes drilled in it from installation. Took the mower out to test out the st 3000 and in five minutes it stop about five times. Over all concept is great. But the cheap motor will cut soft butter, but not thick grass.

What a scam. They say 4600 rpm but they don't tell you at baby crawling speed with no resistance. I guess it is now the... more

Good Product. Could Use Some Tweeking.
I feel the product works great as long as you are on level ground. Otherwise you have to raise your deck to adjust to ground level or surface dips. It would also be good if the unit could hold just a little bit heavier line. Other than that, the unit is very good at trimming.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Quiet

Good And Bad
I have a grasshopper front deck and the trimmer works very well when going around my kids' playset. The only downside is that when the trimmer is up it is tough to go around or under trees.

Underpowered
Peco states the ZT-3000 is for light trimming. I've used it now for about 3 weeks and find it is seriously under-powered even for light duty trimming. I've tried using more aggressive trimmer line but it cut only marginally better. I had to slow down the mowing speed way below 1 MPH to trim effectively....so much for the mowing-and-trimming-at-the-same-time efficiency.

Additionally, what is annoying is the circuit breaker trips too easily. I contacted Peco with my complaints but as of... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Easy To Store
Cons: Under-powered

Tricked Again
I bought this trimmer with the intention of saving time. Well that hasn't worked out. You have to move very slow and its not good at all on uneven ground. Because of uneven ground its either too high or digging into the dirt.

I guess that's the reason they don't really show it being used for any extended time. I mean the video is very limited in my opinion. Its not worth returning. With the 25% restocking fee and paying the shipping that's half the cost of the unit. I guess if you have the... more
Pros: Quiet, Easy To Get Off Mower
Cons: Low Quality, Unreliable, Expensive, Works Only On Perfectly Flat Land

Grossly Underpowered!
Only for small grass to trim, not large weeds, you have to barely crawl and go over area twice. Not worth the money! It was worth the try. Live and learn....

Not For Me
It didn't fit on the deck of a 48" zero turn which is the machine I use close to things. It leaves a strip about 5 inches wide between the string and the mower blade after all adjustments. Along curbs if the ground rolls so does the trimmer and leaves poor workmanship. The electric motor overheats easily and after 30 feet along a building you must stop and reset the fuse. The latch jars loose and the trimmer flops to the ground often, the bolt that connects to the handle rattled loose... more

Cons: Low Quality, Difficult To Use, Unreliable, Durability

Brian,
Sorry you are having issues with the Trimmer, if you think it is defective I can get Peco to look into it. Can you send me pictures of the unit installed so I can forward to the manufacture to see what we can do? If so please send pictures to service@mowersdirect.com.

Don't Throw Your String Trimmer Away
I'll start with saying this is a great idea, I've had a mower deck electric motor sitting on the shelf for several years with good intentions of building one of these which never happened. I installed this on a Lazer Z w/a 60" deck. I found it to be very cumbersome all the pivot points are tight, after losing all the bolts it still will not pivot down w/out pushing the head first.

Never seems to be @ the correct height, may be ok if mowing a golf course but not an average yard. The... more
