My husband needed a new trimmer that would hold a good charge. The old one had batteries that kept going off. This one works great and he seems to love it. The ease of handing, and the twists and turns work well. He even played with it by attempting to cut down plain grass in a spot or two that he missed on the law. I also have no problem holding it or using this item. It is fairly light weight.
Really surprised me for being a battery operated. A little less power that the gas, or electric ones, but it does state for 'light' work. It did what I wanted it to and am very pleased with it.

I love this 19.2V Cordless C3 String Trimmer. It is so easy to use. If I want to do a quick trim somewhere, I can just grab this trimmer and go. No cords to find and untangle, or plugins to reach. Also I have many other batteries to use with this trimmer.
I love the fact that is does not use gas and is easy to work with. I would definitely recommend this to my family and friends. We have used it a few times now and have not needed to lengthen the string yet!
I had a gas trimmer, but living in Chicago it did not get used during the winter and the carb would just foul up or the lines would dry out. I decided to go electric, so I do not have to worry about lines or cars, but then the cord was a big pain, especially when it came time to put it away. This battery operated trimmer was the perfect fit for me. I already own other Craftsman battery operated tools, so my confidence level was already there and it did not fail me. I would have gave it 5 stars, but I am still trying to figure out this auto line feed with no bump. I am so use to bumping to feed a line and not having to do that will be a bit of a learning curve.
I like Craftsman tools for the obvious reasons. The weed-eater is a little counter-intuitive. It doesn't edge very well without contorting my arms to make it happen. The adjustable arm is smart, but doesn't seem to adjust to my style. I had an old-style Toro that was cheaper and easier to use, but it broke after 5 years and there's not a replacement for that. I do like that the Craftsman is battery-powered and as far as a weed-eater, it's good.

I gave it a 4 star because it lacked the power I am use to in my gas trimmer. If I weed at least once a week weed it should be fine though. The taller weeds showed to be a little much for it and ate up the C3 battery pretty fast...
This tolls is excellent for trim my garden edge, My yard is very big and the battery is not enough for cut the edges (we need 2 battery), but the job is easy and fast. I recommend this tool for small and medium yard.

Sounds powerful but it is not. Plus with only one strain trying to cut it doesn't cut well. take twice as long to do the job. I have used the trimmer 3 times now and I don't use the metal guard because it won't cut the grass if I use it.
We have a small front lawn, and this trimmer did the job nicely! It stayed charged long enough for us to trim our grass and do the edging, too. Easy to set up and use.

Bought this for the home...tired of lugging electric cord around with the old one. One charge lasts for the entire property....plenty of power and the lithium battery charges quickly.
I really liked using the trimmer; however, the battery did not work when I tried to charge it for it's first spring use. Not sure if I would recommend based on this (I also tried to email for help but received no response)
After over 50 years of trimming lawns by hand I thought it was time to find a better way, so this is my first electric trimmer. Assembly was a snap (this is a huge statement..I am very mechanically challenged). The fear of destroying flowers, lawn and small children soon vanished and I was a trimming and edging pro. The item is a breeze to use and very adaptable to any situation. VERY quiet operation. Should have bought one years ago.
I have used the weed whacker feature only. The battery lasts long enough to compete weed whacking my yard with power to spare. I highly recommend this 19.2V Cordless C3 String Trimmer.
