13" 24-Volt Cordless Grass Trimmer/Edger Provides 100% Power during Charge Life
The Craftsman 13" 24 volt cordless grass trimmer/edger is a multi-use cordless trimmer that gives a great performance. Unlike cordless NiCad battery-powered trimmers that start losing power the moment they are in use, the Craftsman model provides 100% power during the entire life of the charge. You get reliable, strong power for your outdoor maintenance needs. The 24V of power is a kick up from 18 volt models, as you quickly trim and edge your lawn. The item looks modern in matte red and black. The helical trimmer line is 0.065" wide.
The 13" 24 volt cordless grass trimmer/edger provides you with two tools in one. It easily converts from a trimmer to edger in seconds. You save buying and maintaining two different pieces of equipment, as you need only use the efficient Craftsman model! It has a 13" cutting swath with a no-load speed of 7,800 RPM, making your yard work quick. Enjoy the 100% automatic trimmer line with a touch of the trigger and comfortable soft-grip auxiliary handle that provides high control. Customize the grass trimmer/edger by adjusting its 33" telescoping shaft, which extends up to 51," and adjust the trimming head as you require. When you want extra spool, enjoy the on-board spooler that holds more line at your disposal. When the job is done, the space-saving design enables you to collapse the item; it takes up less room than the competitors.

Weedwacker Cordless Trimmer Review - Model No. 172.743240 I bought this unit for trimming and edging a small ? size lot with a manufactured home on it. It has a wooden fence around the perimeter of the property that needs trimming. I started on the front yard and trimmed and edged all of it. It took about ? hour. That was the extent of the battery life. The manual says to discharge and charge 4 or 5 times before maximum battery life is reached. I?m hoping it will last at least 45 minutes after that. I still plan to get another battery, even though they want $79.00 for it, more than ? the price of the whole unit. As far as the trimmer/edger operation, THIS IS ONE OF THE NICEST PIECES OF YARD EQUIPMENT I HAVE EVER USED. The edging feature works great and saves a lot of time. All the adjustments work great. It adjusted to any situation that I came across in my yard, quick and easy, a real time saver. When the battery dies it runs at full speed for a few seconds and then stops. Don?t charge a hot battery! I waited the recommended time of 30 minutes before charging for over 3 hours, also recommended. It charged up as advertised and the next day I finished the back yard. Not as much to do in the back yard as the front, so battery didn?t run down. I will run it down all the way before charging again, as recommended. This thing weighs only 5.1 lbs., is balanced nicely and vibration is very minimal. I had no fatigue of any kind after using this. When I used my old corded Weed Eater my arm ached and my fingers tingled from vibration after using it. Like other reviews, you don?t know how much line you are using but I haven?t run out yet with about 50 minutes run time, and the automatic line feed works great. My other one was a tap feed and the auto feed is a great improvement. I like the fact that there is a place to keep a spare spool of line on the handle. I haven?t changed the spool of line yet so I don?t know how difficult or easy that is. I don?t have much heavy work to do in my yard but there were a few clumps of thick grass that bogged it down some. It might not be the best choice for heavy workloads. Cleanup is easy; I just brushed it off with a whisk broom, collapsed the handle and hung it on the wall. Quick and easy. Overall this thing is great and is a pleasure to use.

very good to use in place of a heavy gas powered unit does not quite have the power of a heavy gas model but makes up for it with the ability to trim without feeling like your arms are about to fall off.
My husband bought a cheaper one from another store and took it back. He loves the quality of this machine: the battery lasts a long time before recharging, the wheels are great for accuracy and edging, the handle is long enough that he doesn't need to bend over and it is easy on the back. Also easy to assemble shield.

Light weight, battery last long enough for me to trim my entire yard (over 1 1/2 acres), and still runs. Love the edging feature. Unit adjusts to several different angles. Cuts through the grass with the greatest of ease.
