Best batt powered weed eater on the market!!
Works great in grass and small weeds. It will bog in thicker weeds but will cut thru if u take your time. Very lightweight and easy to use. I haven't used all battery weedeaters but of the ones I've used this one is by far the lightest weight hardest working one.

A great step up
Had a one-battery Makita trimmer-edger before upgrading. This has the power to cut through thicker weeds and can run for about an hour without replacing batteries. So glad I upgraded to this model.

Awesome Trimmer
Excellent product, a little pricy but depending on how long the trimmer runs as strong as it did out of the box it may very well be worth it.

Nice n quiet
Have only started using product. Initial thoughts that it is quiet and light. Should work well for homeowner. Probably not suited for commercial use as it probably wont be good for really thick weeds.
