Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great trimmer Easy to operate, easy to change line when needed. I us it to trim around 3 lots that are about 4.5 acres each.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product I was quite surprised at how well this battery trimmer worked. Its light weight and balanced. The battery lasted much longer than I expected. Plenty of power. Only little feature that could be better is the safety lock having to push it every time you squeeze the trigger but then again it is designed for safety. I am very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love that this product does not have a cord, is lite and easy to maintain. I love it! It is lite enough for me to operate it. It is dependable and the value is great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible experience with this trimmer. I purchased this trimmer about 2 months ago and have had problems a lot of issues with it. I cannot keep the line flowing-it keeps breaking off inside the spool. I have replaced the spool several times with your premanufactured spooling and it still does not work well. Every time I have used it I have had problems so today was the final straw. Could not even get half of my edging done. Very disappointed in this pricey trimmer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great in every way I bought my trimmer 2 weeks ago and have already used it about 8 hours. It has no problem cutting ragweed and other southwest invasive stuff for hours on end. It's well designed for comfort (I got a harness) and for maintenance. I changed the string once and it was easy - good tutorials on youtube. I've owned a Stihl chainsaws for decades and would not seriously think about getting another brand. Also the price was really competitive with other well rated brands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice tool Used it for bed edging and fences on 3/4 acre lot and it worked great. Edged the whole yard on one charge and it recharged in 35 minutes - just enough for a beer break. Also took down overgrown grass and weeds with no problem. Used it three times so I have no idea how reliable it's going to be long term but so far I'm very happy with my investment.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Trimmer Dies - not battery issue Have taken back 3 time in less than 2 months. First time dealer gave me a replacement. 2nd time found 2 wires had disconnected. 3rd time still in shop waiting for a response from dealer/Stihl rep. When working it is great but have yet to get through yard completely without dieing.
