You can do 30 minutes of yard work on one charge.
This happy customer shares that it used to take her 4 hours to trim the hedges around her yard, adding, "I decided to buy a battery powered trimmer instead of my corded one. This trimmer is so much lighter than my old one and it has a longer blade!! I was able to trim the trees out front, plus trim the hedges all in 2 hours. And the battery was still going strong!! I am so pleased with this purchase. I just wish I had done it sooner."
