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.

Time Saver
We mow 70 acres a week during the mowing season. This is the second one we have purchased. Both are installed on kubota zero turns. We have calculated a savings of 5 hours a week from trimming with a traditional trimmer. Some minor mods were made for them to hold up to our standards and switched to a better and little longer trimmer line, but for the most part these are great time savings attachments that have payed for themselves in a month. Not for areas that have never been trimmed but for... more

The device does not have enough power to trim tough grass and shuts off easily requiring circuit breaker to be reset.

Decent
This product worked as it should. We tested one on a contract we have to mow an entire military base. I was hoping to ease the demand we have for guys with weed whackers. These work good on level ground, if the terrain isn't it tends to dig into the ground. I found it best when I adjusted the height manually while mowing.
Pros: Quiet, Easy To Use, Durable, Good power
Cons: Difficult To Use, Hard to manage on a zero turn, Uneven trimming unless you adjust on the fly

Love The Travel Position To Work Postion With The Ease Of The Po
This product will save me time and lot's of back pain from weed whacking by hand. Should eliminate 85 to 95 percent of my manual weed eating.
Pros: Quiet, Easy To Use, Reliable, Easy To Store
Cons: Expensive

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.

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

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.

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
