This trimmer works well for a plug in electric. Not as convenient as a cordless, but a third the price.
Not as high maintenance as a gas model.
I didn't mind dragging the cord around. I dragged about fifty feet of 12 gauge and 14 gauge cord around and it didn't have a problem.
The cutting head, however was a big problem. It didn't bump feed as it was supposed to. The first time I used it, the cord broke off, as is normal, but when I bumped it, nothing happened. I tried to take it apart to find out what the problem was. I could open it at first. So, I read the fine manual, and found that the head on mine is not what the manual described. I finally googled it, found a manual for the head itself and saw that it has a secret chinese puzzle squeeze release. I have to open it up and unwind string every time it needs it, just like we did in the last century! When I find one, I'll get a better head that actually works.
Other than that, it works well. I waded through some knee high grass over the septic tank. It cut slower than a gas one would, but did the job.
