Weight (lbs.) Weight is rounded to the nearest tenth of a pound and doesn't include fuel, which can add 1/2 pound.
Engine size Engine cubic centimeters (cc), motor amperes (amp), and motor electrical voltage (volt) are from the manufacturer.
Shaft The shaft transfers power from the engine or motor to the lines that do the cutting. Models with straight shafts offer longer reach, while those with curved shafts tend to be lighter and easier to handle.
Four-cycle engine Uses straight gasoline and doesn't require an oil/gasoline mixture, as do the two-cycle engines found in most trimmers.
Dual line Trimmers with two lines cut more quickly and can handle heavier growth than those with just one line, since they do twice the work with each pass.

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.
