I was able to clear out Johnson grass, sunflowers, and other weeds and grass in a fraction of the time and effort it would have taken with a regular string trimmer. I did go through a lot of string, but it was still well worth it.

No assembly, just add oil and gas. The trimmer starts easily every time. This trimmer is great for those who have a lot of trimming. Word of caution, this trimmer has power and will chew into a fence post or tree trunk in seconds if held to close....it does not operate like a typical hand held weed trimmer....it takes a feel to get use to when you first use it....once you have mastered the technique...it is very easy to use and does a great job...the trimmer strings are quick and easy to replace....and last longer....the trimmer is set at the correct height, tilting the trimmer will tear up the grass...this is not made for real tight 90 degree angels as it will chew up either side....(ie: corners where the fence post and fence meets) although it can be accomplished by keeping the trimmer at a distance and patience.... it works great around curves, edging, fence lines and foundations...no arm fatigue....quick and easy to use.....the price is a few hundred dollars less than others we have looked at......and does the same job....and the best for last....No more pant legs covered in grass...lol
I researched and bought this myself. My husband was not home when it arrived so my 8 year old son helped me take it out of the box, he then put the handle in place. I put the oil in it and some gas and after a couple pulls it started right up. Very impressed. Love that it doesn't throw the grass at you like a regular weed wacker. The next day my husband gave it a workout. Mowed our 2 front ditches in about 15 minutes, which takes over an hour with 2 weed wackers going, then he took it around our fence for the cow pasture. He was impressed. I used it again this past week and it started right up. Don't hesitate to buy
put oil and gas in it, primed 4 times, pulled the cord and it started, once warmed up it took 3 pulls, wah, i live on the side of a mountain in the ozarks, mowers don't work brush hogging cost to much, this goes thru all but saplings and the thickest stalks, i bring a corn knife for that, i'm 6 ft. and had to lower it from the tallest setting, 5 ft. sweetgrass didn't stand a chance, i've done a half acre, and still have the original line, pick up your beer cans 1st. or it will shred them, i accidently left it out and it recieved 12" of rain, no problem (i don't reccomend this) it plowed thru wet, dry ,thick, thin, tall, and short, it works as good pushing, as well as pulling, county didn't mow my ditch this year this did it in 4 passes, it's gaurding kept all the mower mess off of me, normally i would have to change clothes on the porch before going in, not any more, USE HEARING PROTECTION, noise is the only bad thing i have to say, but i put in earplugs first, if you have a problem piece of land, buy this , i will be using it right up until the snow flies, and be ready for a lazy next year, thanks to this field trimmer, next year i will have a nice property,instead of something i don't talk about.
We have a "naturally landscaped" yard in the high desert. In other words, not landscaped at all with extremely uneven ground, rocks of all sizes and tall tufts of stringy green stuff we laughingly call grass. I knew it wouldn't be a walk in the park to use this or any other wheeled mower and it wasn't. It was the workout I expected it to be. With all that said, this is working great. It even cut right through some seriously overgrown areas that both the string trimmer and mower would have struggled with. It also got into all those areas my mower would never have been able to reach like around the trees/bushes with low limbs and the stuff growing in the chain link fence. All of this with the added benefit of not having to worry about ruining a cutting blade on all the rocks. This hybrid string trimmer/lawn mower was a great purchase.
