Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TWO48 This product is easy to use
This edger is easy to use and has the great feature where you can change the angle the string cuts, either flat or sideways. It can easily be changed by pushing down the handle with your foot. It performed well, however, I do wish it would have lasted longer with the battery life. I could not complete all of the edging around my home and then had to wait an hour for a recharge. The only other issue was one time the automatic feed of the string did not work and I had to take it apart and re-thread it so it would work.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BILL so sick of gas operated, love this, just attach battery and go.
I LIVE IN SOUTH FLORIDA, DURING THE WINTER MONTHS I DO NOT HAVE TO DO YARD WORK BUT TWICE A MONTH. MY GAS POWER 2 STROKE EQUIPMENT WOULD GUM UP FROM SITTING IDLE, AND I WOULD HAVE TO CLEAN OUT THE CARBATRATORS AND GAS TANKS EVERY OTHER WEEK JUST TO GET THEM TO WORK. I HAVE 1/2 AN ACER, A LOT OF TREES, AND A LOT OF EDGING, I HAVE ALL THE ATACMENTS, WEED WACKER, POLE SAW AND EDGER. I JUST TOOK DOWN TWO BIG TREES THAT HAD TO GO WITH THE POLE SAW, YES THE BATTERY DID DIE, BUT, WHILE IT WAS CHARGEING I GOT A CHANCE TO REST AND CLEAN UP WHAT I CUT. I HIGHLY RECOMEND THIS PRODUCT. SORRY ABOUT THE SPELLING, STILL TRYING TO RECOUPE FROM ALL THE WORK I DID IN THE YARD THIS WEEKEND, WOULD POST PIC'S IF I COULLD.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SimplyEasy Better than most gas powered wackers/edgers
This tool does the job quite nicely. Quiet when in use and light. Easy to switch from wacker to edger in seconds. Battery life is great!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jgpalmerdds Great Weed Wacker; but not for edging
This is my first experience with battery operated outdoor equipment. The weed wacking aspect of things is great. It is only a single line but it does the job. However, despite it's great reviews as an edger I did not like it at all. Yes, the hub turns for edging, but it eats the line up quickly and does not do the best job. I went out and bought a Ryobi edging attachment specifically meant for this unit and it is fabulous. Yes it costs an extra $70 but it is awesome. So I use this unit for the weeds and quickly switch to the edger attachment for the edging and it is a fantastic combination for about $200.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WeedwhackerIV Makes our 5 acres look like a well-maintained park
When we started landscaping the area around our new home, which had been an alfalfa field, we faced a challenge in getting trees to grow, especially since we were using seedlings for the large area. I like this light weight tool that does a heavyweight job. Since our old-school gas trimmer is too heavy and unwieldy, we were pulling weeds and trying to hand mow between our trees to keep the grass trimmed with less-than-satisfactory results. Now, while my husband mows the grass, I trim around all of the little tree seedlings and rock wall perimeters with this great tool. We found that trimming around the tree seedlings allowed them to grow taller each season, and love the results. We get many compliments on how beautiful our yard is now, and we give credit to having everything trimmed and manicured. The only issue is the battery life--about 30-45 minutes--which necessitated the purchase of an additional battery. We are thinking about getting a third battery, which would help in getting everything trimmed at once, although I don't mind the enforced resting period while the two batteries re-charge.

I purchased this String Trimmer as well as the Bladed Edger Attachment based on the majority of good reviews. I was genuinely surprised the 1st time that l used them. Although not as powerful as my gas Trimmer & Edger, The units are more than sufficient for the average home owner. (And no more 2 cycle headaches or gas to by and mix). Also, it is much quieter than a gas unit. I was concerned that it came with only 1 battery, but fully charged, it completed my entire yard (a good size lot) with approximately 50% remaining power. My gas equipment will be given to my son who has 2 1/2 acres. I would definitely recommend this tool for the average home owner.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cajun1 Great trimmer for the price.
I hate extension cords and/or small engines on trimmers so I thought I would give a battery operated trimmer a try. I'm so glad I did - this one works great and gets the job done without the bother of electrical cords or the aggravation of an engine. No pulling to get it cranked. Since I like to do yard work and my husband does not, this works well for me. Another perk with this model is that it automatically dispenses the string as needed. I would recommend this model.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Qikdra Upgrade from the 18 Volt Ryobi
I have used a reconditioned Ryobi weedeater for 2 seasons now and though I needed 2 batteries to cut a my yard and rental properties, it paid for itself in fuel and oil cost. The main complaints I hear from people is about the cost of the replacement string cartridges. Well I bought the three pack and then a roll of the extra string. I rewrapped the cartridges at a cheaper cost and it worked fine. In the south it's hot as the dickens and fuel operated weed eater make for angry neighbors when you get out at 7AM to cut grass. No worry with the battery powered weed eater. Most of my tenants are surprised when they get up and find the yard done.
When I saw the 24 volt trimmer and the options to put other things with it (the tree lopper, etc) and it was 79. dollars at my local HD I knew I had to have it. Heck a 24 Volt battery on this site is 79. bucks.
