"WITHOUT battery" that's what baretool means.

Decent blower, bought it for my 90 yr old MIL so she could blow leaves off her deck. She didn't want to leave an extension cord outside and she needed a 75 foot 12 gauge cord which is heavy for her.

No comparison to my Stihl 350 backpack blower Smilie

Caution on the string trimmer. After reading the negative reviews users are having issues with the motor burning out or running at half speed.

You can get a battery two pack for $99.00 all day. This is a good deal for people who may have bought a dewalt drill driver kit or combo which usually comes with two batteries.

IF (like me) you've invested in other 20V max:
2 of the 3 LED Flashlights
1 5 tool kit, at my son's
Drill kits w/ batteries
Reciprocal saw w/ battery
Circular saw, w/ battery
BT speaker
DeWalt adapter kit for using 18V tools w/ 20V max (2 batteries, adapter AND CHARGER)
USB adapter and probably other stuff I forgot

It's a decent buy. 3rd party batteries are available for about half list price.

But for newbies to the 20V max there is a new player be DeWalt which uses 20V max but also can be upgraded to 60V.

I have this and don't regret it. Much much better then the Ryobi 20 v which my sister has. It is only $35 more as tool only. $200 option with the 5amp battery and charger is the one I went with. real time saver. I enjoy using the tool. Whole yard only takes about 10 min now since I use it weekly when cutting the grass.

I own both of these tools, along with many other in the Dewalt 20v line, and love them. The trimmer can do almost my entire yard on the slower speed and absolutely mows things down on the faster speed.

The blower works great for leaves and yard clippings but isn't quite as strong as a more commercial style blower, but that's not what it's meant for.

Love this and trimmer. Great! Clean the trimmer every time to keep the motor free from old grass.

That is a lot of batteries. For someone without that selection, the trimmer kit with the battery comes with a 5Ah. If you only have a 2Ah battery from an existing kit, the trimmer run time will be greatly reduced ....

Dewalt had a deal last month for the yard tool, 5Ah battery, + a free 3Ah battery for $179-$199 depending on vendor (CPO no tax free ship, lowes has tax but you can use a $20 of $100)

Bought one of each. I am getting tired of dragging a cord around my yard.
