Can any trimmer line be used on the trimmer or does only the Ego brand fit?

Any line with the correct diameter. I recommend is 0.095 inches. It also takes a line that is one step lower I think but not sure.

From the Specs section it says .095" line:


From the Troubleshooting section is says .095" or less:


Personally, I'd stick with .095" line, it tends to cut better and last longer than thinner line.

When the factory line is empty I will try my Husqvarna Titanium line on my 15" Trimmer. I think the factory line shreaded or broke too easily, won't be definitely sure until I try it which should be tomorrow.

I have the 15-inch trimmer and have been using Echo's Crossfire trimmer line and have been very happy with it. No problems with the bump feed and the line lasts reasonably well.

Factory line emptyed today, so I loaded my Husqvarna Titanium .095 line, what a difference! It's like my 15" Trimmer was turbo charged.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Purchasing replacement line for string trimmer.

Home Depot your exclusive dealer does not carry your replacement line for the string trimmer.  I must order it on-line through Home Depot who does not allow it to be shipped to the store so it must be sent to my home at an additional $5.99 shipping charge.  I feel ripped off.
