Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Earthwise 12 in. Cordless Electric String Trimmer This product is great. Light weight, almost no sound. Only problems are the battery does not last long and it does not hold a lot of string. Would reccommend purchasing a second battery, especially if you have a larger yard to do. June 11, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice trimmer for the price The trimmer is light weight, quiet and does a nice job trimmer weeds. It would be nice if the battery lasted a little longer or if it came with a second battery but for the money, it's a nice trimmer. October 25, 2011

Rated 4 out of 5 by Decent Light Weight Electric Trimmer Easy to use and light. Battery life is good, but a little short for trimming large yards like mine. But a good product overall. July 8, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by String Trimmer I bought this trimmer for a small yard at our second home. The power is not strong and you only have a limited time for the power it does have. Only buy for a small yard and small projects. October 22, 2013
