Rated 4 out of 5 by from No more mixing fuel Bought this just under 90 days ago after trying it out from a friend of mine. Amazing! No gas, no oil, virtually no vibration. 4ah battery will dig about 10-15 24" deep holes, with the soil in our area. About 1.5-2 hrs to charge. Reverse is a great feature, and the anti-kickback is a plus. Overall, great machine. If used commercially, plan to invest $400 more for fast charger and another battery, at the least.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 40V Powerhouse Can't even compare this to the small two stroke gas models, this thing has torque for days and powered through my clay yard. It doesn't like tree roots but not many do. The anti kick back does kick in and shut down the unit so you don't spin yourself to the ground. Wish I would have gone battery powered sooner especially for this application.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Handle Well For starters I'm 58 years old and 5'1 and 110 lbs. And at first was scared to death to use this thing, so I called my son to supervise me LOL. I was never so shocked and amazed as to how easy it was to handle, my son was beside himself LOL, He was like look at my mom go LOL, I am always so impressed with RYOBI and all the products they offer, but this one was by far the most fantastic one of all.
