It's light weight and easy to use.
These would be such easy fixes: 1. a seal on the interface and/ or a deeper lip and heavier clip. A brake or wheel lock that unlocks only when the base is clipped into the trimmer. A locking clip on each wheel, so they stay at the height you choose. And above all, a base that works with a heavier weight trimmer, or a trimmer that accepts one of the after-market modifications (cutting bars or super cord). Do that, and a regular lawnmower will be obsolete for a lot of people.
In short, wheels on a trimmer is a great idea--not only for small lots, but for "difficult" lots. I really hope they upgrade in the next model. But if they do fix all of these easy fixes, it will cut into their lawnmower market, so I'm not holding my breath. For now, as much as I don't like the problems, I consider this my most essential yard tool.
