Exactly What This Old Woman Needed
Now some are going to tell you the battery does not last long enough. I am going to tell you it lasts just long enough. It is just light enough, just heavy duty enough and lasts just long enough for me. Just like Goldilocks. I am elderly with RA and I also suffer from epileptic seizures. More than one time I have pushed myself too far in the heat with a heavier weed eater and, well, it was not pretty.

If you or a loved one would still like to work in your own yard and suffer from RA or other debilitating ailments, or if you should not over do it in the heat for some reason, this is the perfect weed eater for you. Think of the battery life as a timer, when it starts to wind down, so should you. Time to go cool off, grab something cold to drink and plug in the battery. If you are looking for a heavy duty machine, this is probably not the one for you, papa bear. But I do have thick and tall weeds that this slices through without a problem on the highest setting, you have 2 settings and the heavier setting will use your battery life quicker.

I love the fact that I can shorten it to fit my height, this is the first one to actually feel comfortable to my arms. I like that it is not too heavy but still does a good job on my yard. I pretty much like everything about it. If you bought this for your mom or grandma, she would thank you for it.dlila
Very Happy With Trimmer
After charging the battery over night I used my trimmer this morning. I have a 10,000 sf yard and used the product on the entire outline of the front yard and the back yard. I used the low speed (1) and was able to complete the entire job. I switched to high speed to see how much more I had left and it only lasted another 5 minutes or so. Overall, I would estimate (I did not time) that the low speed setting will provide around 45 minutes of operation. Also, love the front wheel for guiding edge work...made the job go smoothly and quickly. The auto trimming for the cord worked perfectly...a nice feature. Finally, the unit it light weight and well balanced. For the price this is a hard to beat trimmer for individual home use.dhutus
Very Good Edger
Light and easy to use... I've had it now for almost two years... Does a great job edging up my lawn and driveway.... My only gripe is that I wish the chord would last longer... Secondly, this isn't really a gripe but just advice to any new purchasers: Speed 2 is mostly useless in my opinion. I've never needed much more power beyond Speed 1 to trim even the toughest grass/weed. Speed 2 drains the battery and burns through the chord too quickly. I NEVER use it. You'd be wise not too as well...Marc C
Great product
I must say I was skeptical at first about a battery powered weed eater. I have a small yard but this was the perfect fit. This was the first time I used but as long as string continues to feed correctly and battery hold up I would give 4 stars.JS69
Easy
My first weed trimmer and it was easy. One screw to attach the shield and about four hours to charge the battery. Now the grass around my trees looks neat again. The roots became too prominent for my little mower. I'm a woman in my 60's and this trimmer is pretty light and easy to handle. I ran out of energy before the battery did.Diana2000
