You can use any string that is the same diameter. There is no need on any string trimmer to stick to a specific brand. You would just wind the string onto the existing trimmer spool rather than buying a pre-wound spool. It'll be a lot cheaper, too.

If you have the 12-inch trimmer, that would be 0.080-inch line.
