"Bought this as I have two 3.0aH batteries for my drills so i thought I may as well get the use of them for strimming as well. Unit is well built and adjustable so ergonomically it's fine. Only down side is that if you have long grass to strim it would take forever as it just isn't powerfull enought for major strimming. Perfect for edging with no hassle of cables getting in the way but only if the grass is not too long. The 3.0aH batteries required for this last for ever but it appears to be the motor that restricts performance. Remember this is only the bare strimmer u purchase with no battery or charger!"
