Better than I expected. I have only used it once, but it worked terrific! I used it on a lot that had not been trimmed AT ALL this year. If it can handle that, I am sure that it can do a great job on the weekly maintenance trimming. Very pleased with the battery life. I had in on full throttle for about 20 minutes none stop and about 25 minutes on and off repeatedly. My only complaint is that there is no warning that the battery is at the end of its charge. It's all or nothing. But if that is my only complaint, I feel pretty good about the product. I did buy the extended warranty for $22.00. It works so well that I am now regretting the money spent. But then again, I have only used it one time so it is too early to say if the warranty purchase was a mistake or not. I will write again after using it a bit more.

Already owned the 40V hedge trimmer and was so impressed I purchased this edge trimmer. Battery charges very quickly and then holds the charge for more than long enough to trim my 4 lawns. It is very powerful and has no problem cutting through thick stuff. Have not encountered any battery problems with either the hedge trimmer or this edge trimmer that others have experienced. I love the power and will buy the 40V blower and chainsaw when they are released!
I live on acreage so I'm not just using this to trim my postage stamp lot. Finally, the cordless industry has caught up to battery and motor technology. This bad boy has the power of a decent gas powered trimmer and the battery life is excellent. I purchased a spare battery just in case but really didn't need it to service an acre sized lawn and various other overgrowth on property. No complaints. Of course if you go full ape and keep the trigger planted all the time it will go through the battery quicker, but use some restraint and only goose it when you need too and you'll get plenty of life out of it.
First one we got in the mail was broken (screw broken off) we brought it back to the Sears store and they gave us a brand new one - no questions asked. This one is working great - no problems - nice and strong and no problems with the battery. It lasts a long time and it recharges very fast.

Would have rated excellent if the plastic cap that hold the trimmer line in wouldn't keep falling off. But my husband would not let me return it he just duck taped it back on cause he loved everything else about it. No gas no cords. So convenient.
Delivery was fast, the battery charged quickly and assembly took about 15 minutes. That's the good part. Once assembled it doesn't run....at all. The replacement unit that I got at the store works well, but when I tried to order a replacement trimmer spool, using the part number in the instruction book, I found that the part number is wrong.
