40V BRUSHLESS ATTACHMENT CAPABLE 15" STRING TRIMMER KIT is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 2783.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Performance I bought this trimmer to replace my Kobalt battery powered one and I am not disappointed. The main reason I chose this model was the interchangeable pieces on it. I got the cultivator attachment and it performed excellent as well. I have been able to get 6 trims on my yard (60'x30') with a half charge left still so I am pretty happy with the results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Trimmer I am simply amazed how powerful this trimmer is given that it's battery powered. Also, as one can imagine, it is super quiet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and powerful I purchased this 3 weeks ago and I couldn't be more pleased. Kicking myself for not buying it long ago. It's light and can get the job done without having to haul gas cans around!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice yard tool A little heavy. Came with a part missing and the handle was scratched up. I'll have to go back to replace it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful I had been using a small gas trimmer that wasn't really strong enough. When I first tried this trimmer I was blown away. This will make my life a lot easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Battery powered I bought this battery operated weedeater and I’m so glad that I did. It’s made getting the job done faster and easier. Restringing Has been simplified as long as you read the instructions first. lol I’m so happy that I made this purchase. As a retired grandmother I am able to use this weedeater with no problem at all. Previous weedeater was electric and what a pain to make sure the cord was always long enough, didn’t get wrapped up, etc.
