Here's another report on a couple more new tools we have. Last December my wife said she wanted a leaf blower for Christmas to blow snow off of her truck. I got to looking on the 'net and ran across this two-tool combo for about $140 shipped, a blower and string trimmer. I decided to try it. The blower worked well on snow unless it was real wet heavy stuff. It would blow a hole in it but not move a large area at once. It came with a bag of attachments too.
Today was the first test using the string trimmer. When I first looked at it back in December, I thought this thing looks too wimpy to handle the hay and weeds I need it to cut, along with the tree trunks, siding, concrete and other objects it will be beating on.. I also had reservations about the little 10' reels with only one string doing the cutting when both of my other trimmers have two lines.
I drained both batteries but got it all done along the grass blown off the patio and sidewalks. Both tools worked great for this and the trimmer is much easier on me than the old gas one and the corded electric one. I didn't have to put in a new spool and the automatic feed worked flawlessly. No more beating the head against the ground!
I'm giving these tools a two thumbs up rating too!
