Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes this chore easier Not having to fight with 100 + Ft of extension cord is really great. I don't have a garage so the battery operation definitely scores big with me as well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wish I had purchased a gas trimmer Battery life is the pits,,, can’t get more than 10 minutes use after a 24 hour charge / recharge. The claim of enough charge to trim 3 football fields is a joke!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like it This trimmer is light weight, but powerful enough to trim around bushes and fairly deep growth in areas the mower cannot reach. Not having used a battery powered lawn tool, I was surprised at how long the battery lasts. The only negative is the angle of the handle when holding the switch. It is a little uncomfortable on extended use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent trimmer for small jobs. Cannot imagine why anyone would buy another brand. The adjustable length made it ideal. This was my first Stihl product. There will be more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I purchased this product because of its nice design, great adjustability features and size. And it was cordless. I have a smaller yard that I needed something to edge with. I went through the whole pack of 6 plastic proprietary blades to do less than 200 feet. I tried using the regular line. But those snapped off at the head within 10 feet each time. After charging overnight, the battery lasted only 15 minutes. An hour charge lasted 5 minutes. I charged twice just to finish. So I returned this item and bought a corded trimmer. Not sure why this product made it onto the sales floor.
