A very handy tool. It lets you lock the engage switch with the on switch which is very helpful for this old body of 84+ years. I have not run out of power the times that I have used it. I simply plug it in when I'm through with it and it is ready to go the next time I want to do that kind of trimming. This is especially handy around sprinkler heads and trees--the sprinkler heads to keep from destroying the blade and the trees to keep from cutting the bark.
When I first saw, ( as described ), it was Aluminum - thought weeds are harder than Aluminum. Not so! Been using for dandelions & other odd weeds, just fine. It gets down a good 6" of the root, at least. Also, I am not sure how they designed it, but to "melt" the plastic handle (feels abit like rubber) onto the aluminum, is what makes it work so well. I am hoping this tool is around my garden for years to come.
