Rated 4 out of 5??by Pam99 This product is so lightweight and very easy to use
I like this product cause it is so easy to reach all places that I want to trim and it hardly needs recharging. I can get the yard done in no time at all and the performance is excellent. I would recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5??by Diane22 Safety Guard falls off
Excellent light weight trimmer that has a lot of power but the safety guard keeps falling off. The safety guard on my old Toro was molded onto the handle and never had this problem. Overall, a very good product for the price.

The product is a lightweight tool that is sufficient for going around the house and in trimming other areas such as around trees and lightpoles. I have use it to edge, although this is not recommended. But, I did not use it for heavy duty edging. It worked ok. I wish the battery would stay charged longer.

Rated 1 out of 5??by RBlose I am so disappointed with this latest Toro trimmer
I purchased this Toro trimmer to replace an existing Toro cordless unit of the same 12 volt design which performed perfectly for over 8 years! This new unit is pure junk. The snap together shaft twists and shimmies as I use it like a cheap toy. The noise and vibration through the handle are world class. Even my wife noticed the high pitched noise in our closed home when I used it outside. The small diameter string is worthless as it quickly breaks off and requires frequent renewal. The auto feed feature quickly jammed up and requires me to manually pull out new string all during its use. The color changing LED charger is the one single improvement over my older Toro otherwise I am angry with my purchase big time. Some MBA needs to be fired over this poor product!

Rated 3 out of 5??by anniec Watch that safety guard
This is an easy trimmer for a small person to use, however, even though it starts out locked in place, the safety guard keeps falling off and it's a pain to keep replacing it.

Rated 2 out of 5??by Toroagogo Very light weight with issues - treat as disposable tool
Depending on the price point and your expectations, this unit may be OK.
This will not replace either a corded or gas string trimmer for most people. It is only useful for very light trimming of simple grasses, no edging or tough brush usage.
Important assembly note: It requires extreme force to assemble the handle. If you do not hear the click, or there is any gap evident, the unit is not fully assembled. Find someone stronger to push the pieces together, or try placing the unit with one end on the ground and push down carefully until you hear the click. An improperly assembled unit may result in poor battery performance
I replaced the line with shaped (sharp edged) line and this improved performance approximately 2x times. However, this may cause the bump feed to get caught up sometimes.
I like that this trimmer is the compact design and does not take up too much space.
Note that the battery is sealed within the unit, and too expensive to warrant replacing when it dies.
