Rated 2 out of 5 by Terrible trimmer head The trimmer head is the most critical component of an edger, and the trimmer head here is terrible. You can not go more than a few feet before the line is heavily worn, and you have to flip the edger over and manually advance the line. Often the line just breaks. It's a very annoying and time consuming process. The trimmer head is not replaceable. Usually you can put a third party head of your choice on an edger. It's not possible here because there is no bolt to the spindle. This would otherwise be an awesome tool. The battery life is great, the motor is powerful, the edger is well balanced and feels right. But if an edger can not edge, it's a poor product. If you buy this you will be disappointed. February 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best unit ever. I have been using this unit since last fall, it is now may 2014 andI love everything about the trimmer edger -, it works great with the foot pedal to go from trimmer to edger, my only problem is with the spools, they tend to jam and I must reset the line by hand, I hope that they resolve this issue - I purchase my spools at Home Depot and next time I go there I will complaine about this issue. I had a gas unit and I know that this unit is better and not noiset , the speed control is great - no matter the size of the grass or weeds it will cut them down - PS fix the spools and I will be a happy person.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Happy with purchase, works great! This trimmer converts to an edger, which is a great feature and I was excited to have it, and it works GREAT. However, the printed instructions on HOW to convert from edger back to trimmer are not clear, and it was frustrating to struggle with it. After a call to customer service, I was finally given clearer information on how to make the conversion, and things have been great ever since! Edges and trims cleanly and easily. I got done with the yard very quickly. November 11, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Great tool with some design issues. This product does work well, but it is cumbersome and heavy. I had issues with the guard as it is hard to see what you are doing. Plus the automatic string feed is difficult to use conservatively. I have cut off string every time I pull the trigger. I run it by starting and then keeping the trigger pulled until I am done to save on the string. My wife does not use this tool as it is too awkward and heavy for her. The ability to flip to edger is a nice idea, but I never use it as I just edge with the trimmer. The attractiveness for me was the price. The online offer made it worthwhile to purchase plus the battery compatibility, but this tool would not be my ideal choice for a trimmer. September 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Trimming was never this easy I bought a Ryobi leaf blower with battery and now I have another great tool that makes use of the battery. No cords to deal with. So easy and efficient. Exactly what I was looking for. November 2, 2014
