So my other brand's 3-year-old trimmer's batteries would barely hold a charge. A replacement battery was $50.00! I knew I needed two, but that would have been $100.00. So I browsed around Lowe's and saw the Worx trimmer and blower combo in a box for $100.00 and it came with two batteries.
Everything is simple to snap together. It works really well, and the blower does great too. It's lightweight and won't wear your arm out like a traditional gas powered weed eater. It does fine for my yard. I don't think it would work as well in a huge yard with brush etc. or for industrial use (lawn care company).
So far I am happy, and it supersedes my B&D old trimmer. It made sense to buy the combo instead of new batteries for my old trimmer. I'm still keeping the old one for backup though. I hope this helps someone in their purchasing decisions.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
