Excellent trimmer, 2 issues

12 Jun 2012

The trimmer comes with 2 batteries and a super tiny, lightweight charger.
The batteries hold a long charge; at fully charged, they’re good enough for 20-35 minutes of trimming, good enough to do the borders of a 30m^2 garden.

The trimmer is lightweight too, very easy to handle, and comfortable.

The only 2 cons are:
1- It’s meant for people upto 6′ (larger people may have to bend forward a bit, or click up the handle a bit)
2- To extend the string, one has to remove the red cover on the bottom of the trimmer. On my Ryobi there was a button to extend the string, but with this one, you’d practically have to demount the head, and halfway take out the coil. It’s not really thought through.

The overall looks are for budget and practicality, it’s definitely not feeling like a solid trimmer, the plastic plates seem somewhat cheap, but they are definitely functional.
It definitely beats buying only a fraction better device for more than twice the price!

In my estimation, the device will last a long time. The batteries probably a good 4 years.
Next time I’ll get a gas powered one, as these batteries are great for the short term, not the longer term.
