Rated 1 out of 5 by Really, Toro?!! Well, as I always do, I read the instructions carefully. Put it all together and went outside to do some simple trimming. Things were great... for three (yes, 3) minutes... ... and then it quit. Just quit. Died. Dead. Non functioning. Hmmm... well, I have another fully charged battery. Nope. Kaput! Finished! Lights out! I also bought the hedge trimmer but haven't tried it out. Won't, either. It will also be returned. If the Toro trimmer only lasted 3 minutes, what hope do I have that either product will last more than a year. Sorry, Toro... I gave it a shot and you let me down. (this is in no way a reflection on the wonderful service that I have received from Home Depot) May 19, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not Actually Made By Toro This unit worked well for one season. After that it quit on me. I took to to the local Toro dealer. The guy at Toro informed me that the trimmer is actually made by someone else and Toro kindly puts their name on it. He couldn't look at it because he wouldn't be able to get parts for it. Took it to an electric motor shop who informed me the battery is the problem. A new battery is expensive to replace. I have been advised to purchase a Stihl gas powered trimmer. My advice is to not put any weight behind the reviews who have not had the unit for less than a year or two. July 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by rivals gas trimmers My gas trimmer broke down and I had to replace it. Decided on trying out a battery powered unit. Knew I needed Lithium since they perform better than NiCd battery units. Decided on this Toro and it didn't disappoint. I was able to trim front and back yard, all the weeds between the patio blocks, and a bunch of overgrowth of weeds and grass on my gravel driveway on a single charge. The power did not fade at all and the capability of this trimmer is excellent. Do not underestimate the battery powered trimmers. They rival the power of some single line gas trimmers. The auto-feed line was very convenient... no bumping to advance the line, no fumes, very quiet. it broke through thistles almost 3/4" thick like butter. Very happy with it on it's first outing. We'll see how it goes over time, but so far so good! August 6, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by This unit works great.I have had it for a couple of months. I originally bought a Ryobi but took it back as the charge only lasted 15 minutes and was not enough to do my yard (20 minutes) This one shows 50% still available after the 20 minute job. My only knock is that it is awkward loading the battery into the unit and into the charger, otherwise I would give it 5 stars. I am now considering the new hedge trimmer as I think I could swap batteries between units as my hedge is over an hour job and probably needs 2 batteries to get through it. May 23, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice trimmer but..... ....don't fool yourself: the full charged battery was drained in 23 minutes of continuous work (trimming around a 400 sq.m backyard) - job 90% done . 5 stars for the machine and 3 stars for the battery. May 25, 2013
