Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bahmo Not strong enough
I knew it would be a little weaker than the gas trimmer I was replacing, but I liked the idea of the rechargeable battery with the added option of plugging it in directly. I also liked the adjustable head to switch from trimming to edging with just a twist. However, I didn't realize just how much weaker it would be. It is fine for trimming grass, but it struggles with most other types of vegetation including relatively small weeds.
If you just want to use it to go over the parts the mower missed and to use the adjustable head to do some basic edging, it is easy to use and works well. If you have anything with stalks that also needs to be trimmed, I would get something more powerful.

I like the fact you can use a cord or battery. MY corded one died so i purchased this one. I have a 1/4acre lot with a 1800 sq ft house on it so not real big yard. The battery would not last through the whole job. I let it fully charge the first time. I gave it a second charge for the 2 ND week of trimming and it would not make it to the end of the job. I liked not having to fuss with a cord I was zipping around trees in circles.I am returning it for the 40 volt. I gave it a second chance and it does not hold a charge.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MerryBee Glad I purchased it.
I was a trifle worried about purchasing a cordless trimmer. I thought it might not be powerful and that the battery would not last. I really, REALLY like not having to worry about an extension cord. It is powerful enough to do what I need. I do have to say though that the battery did not last very long. I have other Ryobi products so I was able to use the battery from my drill to finish the job.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jdubdoubleu self feeding is annoying.
It works like it should for light trimmings. As long as you plan to use it for light trimming grass and edging it works great. Have used mine over 10 times now with no problems. It is quiet compared to gas powered trimmers and super light weight.
Inorder to feed the line you have to let off the trigger and safety button for 3 seconds, yes 3 seconds, it gets annoying.
make sure you have two batteries.
the edger works well.
Not good for tall people, im 6'1" and when using it as an edger it starts to hurt my
Overall its a good product and does what it says it does.

I like that it will use battery or plug in. I have used it a couple of times, with battery, and it works great. It is light and easy to handle. It does a great job of trimming.

This is an excellent trimmer. the only issue we have had is the transition from trimmer to edger-takes some practice, but easy to figure out. The hybrid power function is AWESOME!
