Still my favourite garden tool after 2 years
Have had this for about 2 years now and still really pleased with it. Gets regular use keeping weeds and grass down on a sloping 2-acre block. I tossed up between this and the less expensive Ryobi 36V one and initially went for the Ryobi, but returned it the following day and exchanged for this, and am very pleased I did. The Ryobi struggled a bit with hefty weeds and I found the trigger immediately uncomfortable to use, but the AEG is a joy - just rips through everything, is really well balanced and each battery lasts for around 40 minutes. Fe...els rock solid, and also takes Ryobi accessories, so I've used it with a Ryobi extension and tree lopper. Highly recommended. Bought a bunch of other AEG stuff on the strength of this - the 58V mower works well, as does the 58V chainsaw, and I also have the 58V leaf blower which gets rarely used but was the best way to buy a second battery. Bought the 18V hedge trimmer also - the 58V one weighs a tonne but the 18V is brilliant. Can't ever imagine going back to petrol garden tools again.
Excellent, battery is coming of age
Can read all you like on web sites, but never really found anyone who owns battery garden tools.
As a building contractor, we have been using battery tools for 30yrs, so the step should be easy, but was still hesitate. Mainly due to to the power I guess.
So when I bought it home it was either going to be what a waste of money or BRILLIANT, which it what it is.
Easily as much power as the Sthil fs90. Heavy serrated tussock, whisky grass, passpallum 300mm thick is no problem.
No fuel buying or mixing, no trying to start the thing, no untang...
