Comes with a battery valued at 70 bucks. Easy to assist the shaft length on the fly. Battery lasts long enough to do the whole yard including edging the driveway and along the curb. Cuts gas but won't strip a trees bark.

Prior to purchasing this I was concerned about the battery life after reading some of the reviews. Since I have several from my combo kit and the trimmer came with one I wasn't worried about having to pop in a battery if the one I was using died. I was quite pleased when I was able to edge my driveway, trim around trees, etc. on several occasions after mowing on one battery charge! I have a half acre lot with plenty of trees so I've been getting good use out of it. Power output is fine, the auto-feeder works pretty well, too. My only complaint is how quickly the line wears down, but I'm not exactly careful when edging around concrete, so I probably shouldn't complain. If you want to just pop in a battery and edge your yard, this is a solid option, especially if you have extra batteries anyway.

This is my first trimmer and I wanted one that I didn't need gas or an electric cord. I own a number of the 19.2V tools and I am generally pleased with the way they have held up. I was surprised at the power of the trimmer and easily trimmed about 100 foot length of yard at the rear of my property. It took down any week it hit immediately. The lithium battery may help with the power and hold a longer charge as well. I think you can get the trimmer with or without the battery/charger. I would recommend getting the battery if you own multiple tools since the batteries are the only thing that seems to "go" on these tools. I would say that if you like the other cordless tools in this series, you will like this trimmer. I have not used as an edger yet. One small issue is that the tool feels unbalanced from a weight distribution perspective. Was it the battery or usual for all trimmers (not sure). You might want to compare to a gas unit if this is important to you. Overall I would recommend the trimmer and if money is not the problem, get the extra battery.
I bought this at a great sale price of under $75. It is best used with a Lithium ion battery. I have several which I keep charged. It is always ready. I had a gas powered trimmer that I got so frustrated with. This one starts when I want to use it. I have an acre lot and can do most of the gardens and edges on one charge. I see where someone complained about it's power but much to my dismay I cut thru the chicken wire around my Vegetable garden. Had to mend that fence. Also good to wear long pants when you use it. I'm very happy with it as I'm now into my 3rd year. I almost bought a 2nd one when I saw it bundled with the blower for $94. Like I said the compact lithium ion batteries are the best to use
This battery operated trimmer does a great job. I have a small to medium sized yard and the unit has plenty of battery life and power. It is light weight and a has plenty of power. Replaced a 4 year old Black and Decker and this blows my old one away.
This trimmer will handle grass and small weeds with no problem. Plenty of power for normal trimming. I have a 1/2 acre lot and can get most of the trimming done on one charge. I have other C3 tools, so I have extra batteries if I need them.
I really like the ease of use for this trimmer. Don't have to worry about gas and oil mix and it does a decent job on a medium size yard.It comes with lithium battery and charger which i was surprised by and was a very good price.Another piece of equipment to add to my 19.2 collection
With the lithium battery the power is sufficient. Works well for small jobs.....for bigger jobs, have another battery charging. Line that come with weed-eater is cheap.

Purchased instead of a gas trimmer. I figured save $ on gas. Plus I have tools with same battery pack so liked that & no cord compared to traditional electric trimmers so no hassel with cords. Assembly was a breeze even if you are an amatuer when comes to tools. Charged in less than 1 hour & went and trimmed front & back yard ! Battery still had juicy ! If wanted to last even longer I would pickup a Lithium 19.2 which I have 2 already. Overall great trimmer ! Trimmers adjustments are easy also & no need for tools to do ! The line adjust is easy also with a button & pull technology ! Only thing I haven't done is change line yet but will probably also be easy I imagine ! Great trimmer & won't regret buying ! Last it is a lot quieter than a gas trimmer so if have kids or animals it won't scare as bad or bother your neighbors !
I purchase this item a year and a half ago. It works fairly well but went dead and Sears was unable to remedy the problem. The line also goes fairly quickly. Perhaps mine was just bad luck, but I did not appreciate that the product stopped working so quickly.
This is a great trimmer. After using other gas and electricalicaly powered trimmers, this trimmer is easy to use and the feeding mechanism is a breeze.
We are happy with our weedwacker. Its light and powerful and runs for quite a sufficient amount of time before the battery died. I'd say about 1.5 - 2 hrs. of use before it died, without warning though but that may be how all of these batteries work. All in all, we are happy with this purchase and it was a reasonable price too.
It worked well for what it was. Great to have no fuss with gas and oil, but it is only meant for light lawn duty. It was humming away just fine when I stored it for the winter, then I pulled it out this spring, slapped a freshly charged battery on... and nada. Not a sound or movement.
I didn't like it, returned it the same week. The battery did not last long enough to even do the front of the house and it took to long to charge it for the next use. With this item it would of took me a week to do my whole yard.
The 19.2V Cordless C3 String Trimmer is light weight and easy to use. I can trim up my entire yard on one charge. I cut down all the ferns in our yard with ease and without getting bogged down. Great trimmer.
This is the most useful item that we have purchased in a long time, We live on an acreage so we have a lot of mowing and trimming, it is fantastic on both trimming around trees and edging.
