I just picked this site as an example... Grass gator at Lowes

HTH...have fun...notnew...

The OP has a curved shaft trimmer...

Makes no difference.
I ran them on a cheapie homeowners Ryobi curved shaft back in the day.
Grass gator make 2 types of blades....1 with a metal serrated edge, 1 w/a plastic edge.
Buy the plastic edge.

1 thing I did learn, cuz the blades last longer than string,
you need to check the oil/lube for the shaft head more often.

HTH...have fun...notnew...
Thanks to all US military veterans.

I got sick of the usual line feed headache. I bought this one and never looked back. Buy a roll of line and cut straight 18" lengths. Put them into a carpenter's apron so you can change them when they get too short. Pull the old one out and push the new one in. I HATE wound spools!!!!!!!!
