Loved the fact that I could use my old existing 18 volt batteries and charger on the grass shears. I use it to trim and shape some bushes in my front yard. It is lightweight, comfortable to work with, and preforms great !! I’ve been using Makita power tools for over 20 plus years, and have always been pleased with their performance and reliability. Well worth the few extra dollars for the quality and reliability of this tool. Definitely recommend to anyone.

Bought this for the wife for Mothers day.(..uh huh..sure) ..best little gift I ever got her! I don't think she has used it yet, as she can't get it away from me! This is the best little tool I think a person could invest in. I already have a Makita 18v battery operated weedless trimmer and it has four batteries so did not have to purchase a battery or a charger with the hand grass trimmer as the same battery works in the grass trimmer. the only drawback I can think of is the price..but in my opinion it is a fantastic tool to have in your arsenal! I do not have a huge yard and the battery has never petered out on me ...yet. A very nice too I would definitely buy again and would recommend this tool to y'all.

Convenient size for getting into tight placed in the yard, such as behind planters. 18V battery ensures you keep going, if you already own some.
