Plenty of Power, and Quiet!
I must say, I was really impressed with this Trimmer. I used to own a Landscape Maintenance business so my expectations were fairly high. This trimmer exceeded them. I live on 5/8 of an acre with a higher than usual amount of Trimming to do for this size lot, including about 100 feet of stone border beds.

The Trimmer of course comes with a 3Ah lithium Ion Battery. I have a Number of Hitachi Tools that use the same battery configuration, one of the reasons I ordered this trimmer actually. I took the 1.5 Ah battery off my Hitachi Cordless drill (I've had it for two years, use almost daily, and love it) and figured I'd try the trimmer out while the big battery charged.

Well the 2 year old 1.5 Ah battery did the entire lawn, AND my neighbors yard. Plenty of power, and even did a decent job edging a short segment of sidewalk we have that hadn't been edged since last season. (I prefer "an actual edger" to do this, but wanted to see how it did) It did easily as good as my gas weedeater. Handles tall grass very well too, particualrly for a single line trimmer.

I've seen some reviews that have concerns about the weight, but really, if a trimmer is too light, it's actually more difficult to control. The balance is excellent, something I was concerned about, since the motor is in the head of the Trimmer. It's not a cheap universal motor either and the head, despite containing the surprisingly powerful motor, isn't realy any taller or larger than the head of a gas trimmer. So far, I can't really find anything to fault with this piece of equipment, or ANY HItachi Equipment I own, which includes a circular saw, two cordless drills, and orbital sander, and a compressor.

Best battery powered trimmer
I really like the fact that it uses the batteries from my Hitachi 18v drill. Turns out, the trimmer is really awesome for being battery powered (kill one battery and you'll need a beer anyhow). I like 'man' tools and surely this doesn't count as one, but my wife and kids now helping trim our 3 acre yard. It's a great tool and I'm already over the fact that I look like a yuppie while I'm using it... no noise, no smoke.

like every Hitachi product I've used
Just like every hitachi product I've ever used-terrific-I own a lot of hitachi products from air powered nailers ,cordless drills ,saws down to even a "dremel' type mini grinder(which whips all those type grinders) and now my string trimmer-which i really like-balanced light weght and long lasting battery-great product for grass and medium sized weeds

Easy to use trimmer
I purchased this to replace a Stihl FS 38 gasoline-powered trimmer. The Stihl worked great and has MUCH more power than this Hitachi, but the pull-starting and (more importantly) the vibration of the motor was hell on my arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome. The Hitachi is far better balanced, has no pull start worries, and has as close to zero vibration as I can imagine. Trimming has gone from torture to a pleasure.

This trimmer simply doesn't have the power to tackle heavy grasses and sedges on ditch banks and etc. "Lawn" grasses are no problem, however. A surprise to me was how much torque this has at low speed. When the Stihl gets caught in tall grass and the engine speed decreases, there is a point that the engine simply falls off to nothing. But this Hitachi keeps turning hard even at very low speed; it just doesn't turn fast enough for the string to cut anything...

Obviously, the trimmer is very fast to get into action. Just grab the battery, slip it into place, and go. No cords, no gas, no pull start. I have a huge yard (over one acre) and have no problem trimming everything with just one battery.

Early to make a call, but so far it's great.
I still have a gas trimmer that is a beast, but this trimmer makes it SO much easier. I have a drill and impact driver that use the same battery type, so this was a great addition. I have not found anything that it can't handle and it came with the blower.

Work well for a battery powered trimmer. Not as powerful as a more robust gas powered unit, but effective.

Takes some time to get use to.
I bought this as a maintenance weed-wacker so my wife can use it. I will do the heavy work with the gas one. It would have been nice if it had two lines rather then one, I think then it would do a better job not needing the gas one. It does have enough power and the battery appears will last a rather long time so that may give it another star * . I am hoping that it can take a little heavier line when I have to replace it.
