I purchased this trimmer a few weeks ago as I needed a tool that was easy to handle on my 75ft x 300ft property. For my purposes, this trimmer was fantastic. Light-weight, easy to handle, no cords to drag behind, no messing around with gasoline. Only gave it 4 stars because even with 2 batteries I couldn't quite finish the trimming in my whole yard before having to recharge them, but in all fairness I did put it through a pretty rigorous work out. Love this trimmer!
