Comment:
I use it to Trim around boarders of one acre. I have used it for 2 seasons now. Have not replaced string yet, but suspect I will this season. The battery take about 3 hrs to fully charge. I charge it 3-4 times a season using low speed. Love this trimmer, makes all other line trimmers seem like toys. The technology is designed for professional landscape maintenance so home owners can expect solid performance. The company is small so customer service is very personal. Used their Facebook page to ask them how to store battery over winter and received prompt answer. The cost is pretty expensive, but it is worth the investment. The base price for the Stihl battery power trimmer is about the same, but you have to buy the battery separately. Would highly recommend this product to both professional and residential users. Just as powerful as gas trimmer with no gas or oil. One last thing, I take the battery inside the house after each use. My garage can get over 100 degrees in the summer. I also store the battery in the basement for the winter.
How long have you owned it:

Comment:
Very powerful, 2 speed but uses battery fast, (25 to 30 minutes).standard 3 hour recharge requies extra batteries and/or optional fast charger (1 hour), for continous use.<br />A good alternative to noisy, smelly gas models and a<br />inexpensive runner if your juice is cheap!<br /><br />Trim head problems, Hard to reload,waste line,plastric not good around stonees etc., Needs Shindawa trim head conversion kit.

Comment:
Compares favorably with a gas trimmer for a large yard with plenty of power. It does my whole 1.5 acres with lots of trimming with battery to spare. I won't again waste my money on other cordless toy trimmers. The price is very reasonable considering what you get. I can't believe it was invented, is being built, and marketed by a hometown family in a small Montana community.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
