Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by worthyone Exceeds my needs
Unit was easy to assemble, and simple to change from edging to trimming. Trim line was more than easy to change. Makes my yard work a treat.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by skiger Great to finally be cordless
This was my final battery powered yard tool to acquire and it didn't disappoint me to finally retire my 50' extension cord. The automatic line feed works well so far and sure beats the heck out of pounding the spool on the ground. The battery saving RPM adjustment really works well. The only downside to going to this battery powered trimmer is the weight gain due to the battery. I look at it as a good tradeoff since I don't have to mess with a cord. The battery matches my B&D lawn mower and hedge trimmer too, so I always have ample batteries to swap out for all three. I highly recommend this trimmer.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bric12 An Upgrade
I had the 18 volt grass hog for years and this is certainly an upgrade; however, moving the wire edge guide from trimming to edging mode does require you to pull the guide slightly out of the holes in order to clear the plastic. The directions didn't specify that, only "lift the edge guide into the closed position" and, without thinking, I tore off some plastic when I moved the wire edge guide from the closed position to edging position. I like to go back and forth quickly when edging and trimming around flower beds and this design prevents you from doing that. Battery life is exceptional. I've set the trimmer to 3 and that seems enough power for all the beds lining our property and home. I bought a another battery but I don't think that was necessary.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 38353 Great Value
Great value for the price. It's lightweight and very powerful. The only downfall is the battery life. It runs out before I finish the entire yard (even when I use it on the lowest setting).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by grasshopper WOW! GREAT PRODUCT
For someone that is 78 year young, this weed eater is the best. It purrs like a kitten and does the job in quite a hurry. It is not too heavy to carry around our large country yard. I was surprised at how fast this baby cuts. I used it mainly on #1 and only switched to #2 when the grass got thicker and longer under my yard "art" (an old plow.) Dad takes care of the acreage and I take care of the house area--this has made my job a lot easier! Thanks to B&D for a well made product. 'Nuff said", I just love it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cshepprun21 Really good for light duty work
This is a good product from someone small like me. It's all plastic, which makes it lightweight. It's not really long. It's strong enough to get weeds growing through pavement & it's a good edger, but not for very tough plants. The battery life lasted for a while. I charged it about a week ago & weeded for 1/2 hour - 45 mins straight, & sporadically for another hour or so. I'm not sure if they all have this feature, but to turn it on, you have to press a button on the side and then pull the trigger. When you let go of the trigger, the machine automatically turns off. The reason I only gave it 4 stars is because it's made of plastic and I'm sure I'll need a new one in a few years
