Bought it, took it home, charged it up, put it together and tried it out. I was extremely disappointed. This thing has ZERO torque so, even the thinnest grass will bog it down and often stop it completely. Any grass longer than a couple of inches will get wrapped around the shaft, which will also bog it down. The zip ties they provide are extremely brittle and break easily. After replacing the zip ties 3 times, I finally got about a 1-foot diameter circle trimmed.
I bought it from a local store and can't find my receipt so, there's $30 I'll never get back.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
