Easy to use, very affordable compared to the big brands
Easy to use, plenty of power a bit fiddle to put together but well worth the price.
Used it mostly with the pole saw which I’ve cut down 20 inch diameter branches easily.
Purchased in February 2021 for $199.
Not really good enough but ok
Brought it mostly for the mini chainsaw attachment but it was hopeless. No matter how well you think you have it tensioned it becomes lose or even tightness up the moment you use it. The chain struggled through a small branch and then was so dull it could not cut anything. Rather useless. The other attachment seem ok. The blower works well and the hedge trimmer seems reasonable. The power unit itself though is heavy and a big boggy plus blows too much smoke. Compared to the smaller engine on my ryobi unit the ryobi has more power and blows no smoke. So just a typical low quality 2 stroke engine made to lower tolerances or maybe a bad unit. It works so that's a plus.
Works pretty well
I’ve owned it for 1.5 yrs. Product quality and build is reasonable, about what I’d expect for the price. Given the price, and my only using it occasionally, it does the job and I’m happy with the purchase.
The whipper snipper works well. The power output has been good. I live on an acreage and use it in long grass just fine. The steel blade cuts through thick meter high plus grass without too many dramas. The unit gets really heavy when I’m using it for extended periods of time.
Overall It’s a bit clunky to use, the general location of swit...ches and handles etc for operation are just a bit off. I find I easily burn myself against the hot metal of the whipped sniper using the shoulder strap If not careful. The shoulder strap is entirely useless unless your a midget. The chain saw and hedger work well enough and have really tidied up the garden nicely. Mind you... again they feel clunky to me, but for the price, just fine and really useful. The user manual is hard to understand. Really poor job of laying out the instructions. So putting the unit together and swapping tool heads the first few times was a bit of a head scratcher, but after you figure it out it’s fine.

Bang for your buck but heavy
Best back for you buck but heavy. Have used it for 4 hours now. Only negative is the weight but again value for money consider the price. With the 6 in one make it hard to walk past for the price. If you bought a ryobi it would cost over $800 for the same set up

Great tool especially at the price
I have had mostly good experiences with this tool. It does require a very careful reading of the manual which was about 2 hours of study before assembling and using but it is a Multi tool. I have used the chainsaw attachment most and it is very good. Cuts through thick timber like butter. The whipper snipper assembly instructions are not fully clear and my initial attempt locked up but a call to service department sorted it out. Lawn edger is a strange design but it is ok. Whipper snipper and blower work well. The brush cutter is also effective. Engine always starts easily and runs well. Very pleased with my purchase.

Near perfect; don’t know what the fuss is about putting it together??
Bought this for $99.50 on special from $199 as Aldi wanted to move the stock; as they do with any weekly special items that sit in their store for more than 6 weeks.
Took 30 minutes to carefully read the instructions and put it together after 1.5hours and started using the trimmer. Started after about 8 pull of the string and runs really well.
While it seem heavy to handle, once it was running, I did not even have to use the strap and was quite comfortable to use. And the strap is easy to attach and use. I see some people having trouble with...working out how to attach the strap? All fittings and attachments were in the box and the blower works ok for light shavings of leaves and lawn clippings. Happy with it so far and great value at $99.50!!!!!! Sending the warranty registration today as it comes with 3 year warranty.

Good set of tools, manual need improvements. Nothing is clear there.
Took many hours to understand every piece.
Not easy to install and remove individual tool.
Takes lot of time to set it up
Needs lots of space for storage.
Cuts the branches easily.
Setting up strips is a nightmare
Purchased in February 2020 at ALDI for $199.
Not bad so far
Bought it on Saturday 1st of March & used it the same day.
It’s a little heavy & the shoulder strap is too small, as I’m a larger man.
Haven’t used the other attachments yet so I can’t comment.
So far so good.
