Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful and easy to use I finally bit the bullet and purchased this string trimmer on sale this past spring, after years of simply bashing edges with my hand mower and loppers. I have to say that is easily my favorite outdoor tool - it is surprisingly light and the handles can be adjusted quickly if you need a different hand grip; the engine is relatively quiet and the battery lasts long enough for me to handle my 6,000-square-foot front and rear lawns. Since I basically use this as an edger and lawnmower for tough lawn areas, I was very happy to find that replacing the string is easy and quick. My only complaint in this regard is that the manual actually shows how to replace the cord for a DIFFERENT model.
