It works so long as you keep it level & watch what you are doing as an edger it not very good digs in to ground thus slowing you down. My Toro OEM worked a lot faster but would not feed line & the Toro people do not make a replacement for it. I might try there other product with the line feeder instead of the blade model like this one.

Not very good for the hill country. Went through a package of 12 blades due to rocks. The one good thing was that it was very easy to change the blades.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed Avoid, cheesy blades grind down to nothing in minutes.
On my last trimmer I bought a replacement head (same price) with blades that lasted all summer. This trimmer I bought this head and within a couple of minutes the blades were ground down to nothing. Today I put on the replacement blades and did a normal trimming. Tiny front and back yard combined less than a small fraction of an acre. This time I had to stop trimming in the middle of the job because the blades were ground down to nothing. Also installed as per instructions on my echo trimmer (common brand) and had so much grass tangle up under the replacement head I had to stop at one point and take it apart. Complete piece of junk.

Disintegrated after 60 seconds. Replaced the blades, reduced RPMs, changed from thick brush, kudzu style weeds and thick crabgrass to only light weed and grass with the same result. Except it lasted 2 minutes before disintegrating. I have a gas powered Stihl weed trimmer.
The blades were very easy to replace. Good for a small lawn with light grass only. Look out for the edges of sidewalks, concrete borders, pavers etc. the blades will disappear.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by EZSpendor "Not Intended For Edgings"..........?
"Not intended for edgings".....so what am I needing a trimmer for? If I'm only going to use my trimmer for open fields I can use my lawn mower for that.
That said, plan on replacing the nylon blades every time you use your trimmer. If you have to trim around harder surfaces (like plastic edging, wooden fences, etc.) expect the blades to wear FAST as you use them. They last about as long as it takes to do the yard and that's it. My yard is average size (.5 acre) with fencing and plastic edging in the normal areas.. At $8 for 12 blades, it's almost a horse a piece price-wise with buying a new trimmer head with string.
Still, it's better than farking around with trimmer string every time it breaks. Blades are super easy to remove and replace.

Probably be ok product if you have open field to trim. Not so great for around obstacles as the blades just snapped off.
