Love this trimmer and blower set. Tired of mixing gas and 2-stroke additive and old trimmer was loud and leaked and the strings had to be redone with every use. That said, you won't get as much time from the battery as from a gas trimmer, but I can live with that, and you can switch batteries when one runs out. Much cleaner, quieter, string feed is automatic and at full battery has as much power. I have not used the blower as much, but it has good power. Nice if set came with two chargers, tho.
Trimmer is great value for edging yards at home. Blower good for walks, decks, and driveway around one home. Quick and easy to use. Batteries are interchangeable. Take a comparatively long time to charge. Would not recommend for commercial use. Does get a 'yes' recommendation.
My 4 year old B&D "Grass Hog" trimmer and 18V batteries still works as good as ever (I don't abuse it). This is not a Grass Hog, but is similar. The Grass Hog can position the handle up-and-down on the bar, and it turns upside-down differently (for edging). It appears to have the same motor and the same line-feeder which has worked flawlessly for me.
The blower isn't terribly powerful, which is just what I wanted for inside the garage. I may even be able to use it for dusting inside the house!
