Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JoeW Received this for Father's Day
Already had the hedge clippers that use the same battery (love those too). This thing works great. Got a 1/2 acre lawn and use up a battery and a half usually. Has more power than you would think. I use the edger wheel a lot for the driveway, walkways, and front curb - its a nice feature. Two seconds to flip from edger wheel back to normal trimming. This trimmer will cut into the dirt nicely to give you an edge. Not quite as powerful as a gas trimmer, but the ease of use / low maintenance factor of this thing is more valuable to me than having the strongest trimmer on the block. Would definitely recommend.

This 20 volt trimmer replaces a 3 year old Ryobi gas powered 4 cycle wheeled trimmer and a 25 year old (yes!) B&D electric trimmer. It's a dream machine. It does it all and it's light weight, well balanced and easy to use: no more extension cords, no erratic gas engines, no bumping to feed line.
The battery has plenty of power and run time using the lower power setting. It even out performs my B&D electric edger!
The replacement spools are a tad pricey but, hey, it's worth it compared to the hassles you give up.

I agree with all the comments about the power and versatility of this unit. I've also found that for a long run, one needs a second battery - but that's not why I'm writing.
I'm 6'1, and i find that I have to bend over a bit to use this trimmer effectively. It would have been nice to have another , say, 6" of extension for better ease of use.
Otherwise, this is a 5 star product. Had it for 3 years now and besides some sun fading, it's holding up like a champ.

THIS TRIMMER IS A GOOD FIT FOR THE LIGHT DUTY GENERAL EDGE TYPE AND GRASS TRIMMING RERQUIRED TO MAINTAIN MY LAWN. IT WILL ALSO HANDLE ANY WEEDS THAT ARE TYPICAL AROUND THE EDGES OF MOST YARDS. RUN TIME HAS NOT BEEN AN ISSUE AS THERE IS SUFFICIENT BATTERY POWER FOR MY USE. POWER HAS BEEN THERE FOR UP TO AN HOUR OF LIGHT DUTY USE.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by workingclassdog Battery charge not up to par for even a standard sized job
The quality and durability of the unit itself is decent enough, however, the battery doesn't last anywhere near as long as I expected it would. Would be great for those in a patio home or some type of smaller yard, but anyone who actually has a regular sized year will either have to get a 2nd battery to complete the job in one setting or plan out a block where you can get about 1/2 of it done and then do the 2nd half several hours later or the next day. Guess the Lithium-ion battery technology still isn't quite there yet. Would not recommend for anyone other than the tiniest yards mentioned above

Its now fun to do my yard work with my new trimmer. Its light weight and very easy to use. I can get through my chores in half the time. I love how the trimmer lengthens the cord for trimming automaticly. No puling need to stop work to pull or adjust things. And changing the spool of cord is a snap! Now I have time to do many to do other things I want. Instead of slaving the trimming is fun.

This has been my second year of use and this trimmer is still going strong. The battery and trimmer function are still running like new. I trim about a 1/3 acre lawn using the trimmer for about 45 minutes at a time and never any problems. The original string is still installed and cuts very well . I would buy another one and highly recommend this trimmer. I'm a senior citizen and the light weight is perfect for all the old foggies!!!

The trimmer came in great shape and was easy to assemble. After charging it worked great and had some nice features like edge trimming ease, adjustable handle and telescoping shaft. The best is that it is light weight which makes it easier for me to use.
