The 20 volt tools with lithium ion batteries are lightweight and easy to handle. They work well for small jobs, but lack the power of 110volt or gasoling powered equipment. The weed eater has one string and runs for about 20 minutes on a freshly charged battery. The string is accessable and advances fairly eaasily. It cuts reasonably well. The blower also ran for approx. 20 minutes with a freshly charged battery. The blower works well blowing dry leaves on a smooth surface. Don't expect it to lift things up out of grass. The blower is very light, balanced and easily used with one hand(no dragging an extension cord). A lawn care professional would not have a use for these tools. They are for small jobs around the home and do what I expected them to do. There is an 8 hour charge time, so keeping batteries charged means planning ahead. I feel the combo set is a bargain because the batteries are around $46 each. Included are Weed eater, Blower, Charger and 2 batteries. Batteries are interchangable with other 20 volt Black and Decker tools. I have owned these just a couple of days, so I will update this review after about 6 months and rate longevity and reliability. I have owned other Black and Decker tools over many years and have found them to be well made and dependable.
