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

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

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

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

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.

Cons: Too Weak Shuts Off Too Easily

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

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

Good Concept, But...
Needs more power at least double what it has.
I have tried thicker, thinner, braided, every kind of line possible. The motor can't keep up and the fuse trips within 20 seconds. Very very frustrating, but I will put on a bigger motor with double the power and see if this gimmick will work and don't give me that crap about it's only supposed to trim grass and not weeds. That is a piss poor cop out. It should work and cut what a trimmer does!
Pros: It Beats Walking 1 Acre To Trim A Fence Line
Cons: Low Quality, Unreliable, Durability
