Excellent for what I brought it for which is cutting edges. Really love the cordless operation far better than the 2 stroke petrol one I had. You don't have the problem of the cord breaking all the time. Having a second battery is also very helpful as you never run out of power

Fits my drill as well so compatible is great
Single string - a bit weird
Still coming to terms with how it cuts but I’d expect that will come with practice

The unit is light and handy easy to use. We've just use it for a couple of weeks now so can't really vouch for durability. We like that you can use the wheel to tilt the trimming sideways. We are beginners so it is good to have a line trimmer cartridge of some sort to use it with.
The unit is not that 'powerful', which is probably to do with it being 18V only. We were told the battery should last for at least 40min but we are able to use it for 20-25min at most only. We have had to buy an additional batteries. It would have been nice if they can give an option to buy a second battery+charger at a cheaper price. I guess the good news is you can use the same battery pack for other Black & Decker tools. Had to check if that is true. It would have been nice if we register your unit warranty online too. I don't see myself keeping the receipt in a safe place for the duration of the warranty
