Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by OCHomeowner Great combo for small yards
I recently started maintaining my yard after having a hired gardener so I needed a number of tools. This combo has everything I needed and works well for my small yard. There is plenty of power and decent battery life. I can easily trim, edge and blow on one battery, if moving efficiently (disclaimer, yard is <10,000 sq ft). Sometimes I need the second battery if I also use the hedge trimmer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dave4DIY Combo is a great value... very easy to use
Products work great. Was expecting a little more power with the sweeper compared to another electric one I have but it works fine for the dry grass clippings, leaves, and little twigs. The trimmer works as described and the hedger is fantastic with the cordless option, no need to keeping moving the cord. You can keep both hands on the hedger making it safer, faster, and easier to use. With 22 in, very nice length. The only gripe is the battery charger takes nearly 7 hours to charge one battery. But they give you two which I can get a medium size yard done with both batteries and charge them overnight. HD shipping was fast and great value.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Helipilot Good Products for Yards That aren't Too Big.
I had the 18 volt versions of these tools and they did well for my yard, which isn't too big. But the batteries started to fail after several years of service and the tools started to show their age. So I decided to upgrade to the Lithium version. I got a great price at almost half of list and that makes them a good value. There were several enhancements made to the tools, which is nice, they are easier and more comfortable to use. The Lithium batteries are light and last as long as the 18 volt NiCad's, maybe a little longer, but if you are coming from corded tools it will NOT seem like the batteries last long enough. Trimmer and hedger time is not bad but the blower only get's around 15 minutes. So the solution is to have several extra batteries and a couple of chargers. Two batteries fully charged will do my entire back yard but if I want to get the alley and front I need a couple more. Since the batteries take a while to charge you want to make sure they are fully charged before you start. One thing that is great about Lithiums over NiCads is that they keep their charge so you can leave a battery on the blower and just grab it whenever you want to blow the patio or driveway off.
The 18 volt version of these tools were great and dependable and lasted for years once I learned to work around their limitations (needed more batteries and another charger. Especially if you have a large yard.) Plus the 2 year manufacture warranty is great. The blower started making a bad noise, so I took it to the B&D Service center and they swapped it out. Took less than a half hour and I had a brand new one.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Underwood Not bad but needs new charger and batteries
It works, suits my needs but the kit's charger is a joke - takes 7 hours to charge one battery - useless, had to buy fast charging one which does it in 30-40 minutes.
Battery life not quite enough - they last 15-20 minutes only.
But when tools still have power they work fine.

We have not had this product very long so...
Battery lasts longer than expected, blower is darn good, weedwhacker works great, especially for a single string model, is very lightweight and simple to switch from trimmer to edger. Have not used the hedge trimmer yet. Easy to assemble the little bit that needed assembly.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jman Battery issues
This works very well but I have issues with batteries.
They take a long time to charge and the charge does not last very long. Also, i had to bring the charger and batteries in the house to charge because they seem to be overheating in the garage. Temp in the garage was only about 75.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by KLitz Easy to use trimmer, blower, and hedge trimmer
Easy to use 3 piece set of equipment. I found I needed an extra fast charger since the charger included needs 8 hours. Also only two batteries leaves down time even with a rapid charger.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DIYer One Bad Battery
I received one non working battery. Leaf blower seems too small. Also, blower's tubes seem too short.
Edger/trimmer seems okay for light duty work. Hedge trimmer seems sturdy.
