Best Uses
Comment:
I bought this to replace a series of corded and cordless electric string trimmers,all of which failed for one reason or another. The automatic string feed works perfectly. Does not spit out line too fast. Line easier to reload than dual string trimmers. Lithium ion batteries have improved with use. Single charge lasts long enough to finish my yard. Performance adequate and portability outstanding. Price was fair.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

When the line ran out I tried to reload the spool with.065 line but the line kept breaking and ran out after cutting only about 10 feet. I reloaded four times with the same results. Very poor design.

Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
