Works great. Broke a window when I hit a pebble on low.

Packaging can be confusing but just to be clear, this tool only runs on flexvolt batteries.

Acme will ship the box like you would buy at the store and sticks the label on the outside. It is conspicuous if the delivery driver leaves it on the porch.

Just a FYI for everyone, most of my Milwaukee and Dewalt tools were shipped from big box retailers using the original Mfg box on the outside. Meaning they didn't put the package inside of a Cardboard box.

Have you tried the brush cutter? That's the only attachment i really want. On the fence if i want to spend $300 or just try to find a used gas version for 1/2 the price.

Yes I have and it is no different that the Ryobi or any brand. Wish the blade was sharper. It does knock off weeds pretty well. I also have the Ryobi Cultivator attachment and it works pretty well. I used the cultivator to dig 1ft for extending my existing patio. I used an extra 6ah battery and it goes on forever - one in the charger and the other in the tool.

FYI - If you already have the charger & battery then you can sell them for $150 easily making this tool just $80. That is what I did since I have the 12ah battery and a fan cooled fast charger. The charger in the kit is really bad & slow.

Yeah, I have 3 9ah and 3 6ah 60v so I might just do that... Still on the fence but getting closer.

How does it do with little bushs and small trees no bigger than say 3/4". That's mainly what id use it for.

Thanks. Ordered one when my Craftsman finally died. Works great. Bit slow on the shipping, but can't complain when it's free.
