Before people start commenting on how they got this for ~50 on clearance, that one was the gen 2 40v string trimmer, the one posted here is the newer gen 3. Not exactly sure the differences, other than battery size (this one is 2ah, the other was 2.5ah?). I just bought the gen 2 one from my store for 51.70 and will pick it up tomorrow, but I'm curious if anyone actually has any experience with both and the differences, if any (i think this one is auto feed, older is bump).

Looks like the price differs depending on which store you pick it up from..

Hate to be that guy... but note that most of the 40V line of tools (including this trimmer) are still BRUSHED motors. I really wish they'd finish updating the 40V line like they did with the 24V and 80V, because it's a great line for most yard sizes for many folks.

Given the lower performance (and larger battery drain) that comes with brushed electric motors, I'd say go for the 24V tools and just get yourself more batteries. If you need a line of tools that has a mower (which the 24V doesn't), I'd look elsewhere and save up for someone's 60/80V lineup.

This. I'm super happy with my 24v trimmer and blower kit. The original trimmer line sucks, but that's a easy fix. I know square footage is a illogical comparison to measure trimmer performance, but I have a 7000 sq. ft yard and I can edge around the sidewalk, driveway and around the landscape in one charge and have a little juice leftover for the blower.

I recently bought this trimmer on previous deal at 99. It was easy to assemble. I did some edging and and some cutting in some places I could not reach with my lawn mower. Plenty of power for me. This is my first trimmer so far I'm happy with it.

This is a better deal if you need more tools: https://slickdeals.net/f/14104979-sun-joe-cordless-electric-hedge-trimmer-pole-saw-grass-trimmer-kit-with-2-0-ah-battery-charger-110?from_da_id=88653413&sdxt01=2020-06-05+09%3A12%3A44&sdxt07=0&utm_source=dealalerts&utm_medium=email&utm_term=14104979&utm_content=13596&utm_campaign=88653413&p=137747558&src=da_si_v2_88653413#post137747558

I have this. My only complaint is the feed on this. The feed doesn't come out after hitting it on the ground. Manual says it should. I have to open up the blue thing on the bottom to bring the feed out.

I bought this yesterday. Rang up as 150, but they corrected it to 99 bucks. Its not bump feed, which I find really annoying. Its auto feed, so every time you squeeze the handle it'll let out a few mm of string. Seems wasteful and not at all what I actually want. I'm on the fence between returning it and paying more for something else or just keeping it and seeing how it goes.

so you mean every time you press the two blue buttons , it lets out a few mm of string? This wasn't my experience. After using it, string is smaller than what I started. so I have to open it from the bottom and let out the string manually.
