Home Depot lists the following models.

Are the descriptions correct?  What are the differences between them, especially between the "Rapid Reload Head" and the POWERLOAD string trimmer feature?

If I remember right:

F = Rapid Reload
SF = Rapid Reload with straight shaft
S = Powerload

The RR heads wind manually: insert the string and turn the head. The powerload is new and has a motor to wind the string.
