It works well enough, but I think they should be including atleast a shoulder strap with the kit. Came with some little bag, i think for you to carry the charger in. I saw some reviews that showed them coming with big bags for the actual powerheads and all that. Not this kit. Pretty bare boned. Plenty of power. If you go to get the hedge trimmer attachment, make sure to get the one that comes with the pole, the other attachment, you have to take off the trimmer head from its pole and attach it that way. Kind of frustrating realizing i ordered the wrong attachment for this and i havent been able to find where to buy one of the short poles for that attachment. Really quite heavy with the hedge trimmer attached extended so much. kind of useful for reaching some spots, but it wears on the arms pretty quick.

I had been dealing with a temperamental gas weedwacker for years and finally got tired of it. I have quite a few Makita tools, so it made sense to look at what they had to offer since I'm already invested in that battery platform. I chose this model to get a couple more batteries and so I could buy the other attachments if I ever decided I wanted them. The power is about equal to my old 32cc gas machine and the batteries last just long enough on high to clear all around my 2/3 of an acre, plus clear a large hill that is too steep to mow. I expect I could get more range on medium and it would be sufficient for most of what I use it for. The reverse setting is also awesome for freeing weeds that get wrapped around the head. My only complaint is I'd prefer if the bump feed head were one of the easier to load ones (wind in reverse). I think Makita offers a replacement head to address this and I plan to look into that, but for the price of this machine it's disappointing to have to also pay for that add-on.
