All full price by me, maybe add YMMV to the title, great deal for the 2 4ah batteries alone, add in the other kobalt tool only clearance deals to start your stash.

In my experience, lowes reflects the correct prices on BS. Link for reference

I checked my location on brickseek and it shows $149. Maybe brickseek hasn't been updated yet. Check my image link in the OP to see the shelf tag.

A dozen or so is available in store in Cary, NC although the full price shows online. Might pull the trigger, but but want to ask a
question first: how much less powerful will 24V trimmer be in comparison to 40V? I have Greenworks 40V with only 2Ah Battery, which often is not enough to go through the entire backyard. Two 4Ah batteries for Kobalt might increase the range, but will this Kobalt be significantly underpowered as compared to the 40V?

I have the Kobalt 40V and it is TERRIBLE. The one I have has such a small cutting diameter and uses the tiny line diameter that it does not suit my needs. Good think my echo srm230 is still a beast. I live on a small farm and have a lot of weed eating to do. The small string and small cut path is just way too weak for what I need. I would personally buy this just for the batteries.

My dad has this 24V and likes it. He has a tiny yard that you could mow with scissors. He is 73 and still doing his own yard work.

Brickseek said my store had none, with a price of $149.99. In store, however, there were quite a few [imgur.com] at $59 (some with two batteries, some with only one). Huge rep to OP for posting, and to imabass for mentioning that the Brickseek quantity might be inaccurate.

You're welcome bud. Don't sleep on the extended warranty if you plan on buying more Kobalt 24V batteries, like the Buy a kit get a free tool. 50% back in gift card from keep it running rewards. You can buy the warranty after purchase up to a point.

Did not know that! Will look into that for sure. Thanks again for posting. This is the third Kobalt 24V clearance deal I've gotten in the last month. Now I finally can get rid of my Craftsman Ni-Cad kit.
