I bought this thinking I needed something small, and quick to just clean up the edges around my gardens, and trees. And this is PERFECT!!
I do have a larger gas trimer/edger. but I dont need to get that out every week, when I can just take out my lighter, quieter Cordless trimmer!
This is great for smaller yards- Do not get this if you have a larger yard. Maybe the 18Volt would be better if you had a larger yard.
The charge on this handles exactly for what I need it to do. The directions say it takes 24 hours to fully recharge, but I have been able to use this right around the 4 hour mark.
This is rechargeable, and it has a nice hanging charger, so you can just clip it in, and it can hang in your garage, without having to lay aournd, or get some sort of fancy holder for it.
This is very lightweight as well.Its justunder 10 pounds, and you can tell, my arms dont start to hurt when I am at the end of my trimming job. This trimmer does have an edger feature on it, but thats only good, if you have had your edges already started by a more powerful edger. This isnt a monster, so it cannot start the edgeing, but it can certainly keep up with the cleanup.
I would recommend this to anyone with a small yard, or at least a small area that they need to trim or edge. Its lightweight, so for any women who might want a small unit, this is great.
