Hey Everyone, this little lawn care tool package is a great deal if you consider the following:Packaging:The weed whacker and blower were packaged in a Black & Decker box, that one would expect to see in a big box or home improvement store. Inside the box both tools were secured and packed in place with plenty of cardboard inserts to hold them securely in place for shipment. This box was packed into a larger Amazon shipping box and secured with packing filler, so the box would be held in place and secured a bit more during shipping. So, this package was packed well and shipping was very fast, if memory serves, this package arrived early by one day!Product:Since I don’t have a large lawn(takes approximately 2 hours for front and back with bagging of grass and weed whacking and blowing) this lawn combo kits serves my purpose well. I was very surprised by the strength of the blower, it performed well and was light weight, for me. I was used to a much heavier, more powerful blower. In my opinion, this package is nowhere near suitable for commercial usage, because of battery life and lack of power. However, small to medium lawn care would be ideal for this combo. I especially like the light weight of the blower, with battery attached to unit, I was able to sweep blower from side to side effortlessly, which may come in handy for someone who is in need of such lightweight equipment. The weed whacker, I also found to be lightweight with the battery attached, was very surprising to me in it’s functionality. While I only use this weed whacker to trim grass and weeds, not as an edger, I was happy with its’ performance. The shaft is expandable to allow it to be set for the users’ height. This was a nice feature for me, since I’m 6’2″ tall and I found it to be very easy to use. This unit is self feeding, so no more bumping on the ground to feed the line, which was appealing to me. I did read the directions prior to use, so I found out that it is advisable to protect the head, the part that spins and trims the weeds, and prevent it from contacting the ground. With this in mind, using the trimmer I was able to accomplish my yard work with no problems.The cons of this combo kit/package:This kit worked well for me, but that is because my lawn is pretty well maintained to begin with. If there are large stalk weeds or dense overgrowth of grass, it is more than likely that both of these units will struggle if not be unable to cut or blow heavy matted clumps of grass. I found that the only disadvantage of this kit was the battery life. It gave me approximately 20 to 30 mins of peak usage before I discovered the equipment begin to ramp down in power. I was able to use both pieces of equipment, and noticed the decrease in power of both units as battery life began to trickle away. So I decided to charge the battery while I cut my lawn. I began the charging process while I was able to cut both front and back yards and the battery was still indicating that it was charging. This is a good indication that it will take a substantial amount of time to achieve a full charge before using again. So, in other words, I will be contemplating purchase of ATLEAST one more battery but more likely 2 more batteries so I will have more freedom of use with these tools.

un artículo muy práctico para la movilidad la batería te dura alrededor de unos 60m2 en tiempo como 30 a 40 min, el tiempo de carga de la batería es de unas 4 hrs, es un poco incomoda porque el mango solo está pensado para una sola postura y cuando quieres bordear es incómodo al girarlo, por otro lado el hilo se va rápido entonces hay que estar sacando constantemente y se vuelve algo tedioso, algo que no me termino de convencer fueron los materiales con los que están hechos no son muy buenos, se se siente corriente al tacto, el regulador de distancian del bastón en alguno momento siento que se va a terminar por desgastar si quieres algo para toda la vida creo que este artículo no es el indicado, es bueno para pequeña areas no más 25 m2 la sopladora no le veo usabilidad.La sopladora pues es una herramienta que caso de que te quede pila la podrás medio usar para arrinconar el pasto pero para efectos prácticos y ocupa más la pala y el rastrillo o escoba y recogedor por lo tanto es una herramienta que no ocupó tanto hasta el día de hoyCreo que está bien para una persona que quiere darle mantenimiento a su jardín, pero este cuenta con una área de pasto mediano, en cuanto a costo beneficio por lo menos en mexico en un año y cortando cada 3 semanas el pasto, la desbrosadora se termina pagando, esto depende mucho de tu región. Espero les guste esta pequeña reseña saludos

These two tools will fill in some voids that I had in my tool collection nicely. I have very powerful gas versions of both of these, but some jobs require less power. The weed whacker does perfect for touch up work…i.e. you have a few areas that you want perfect after mowing, but don’t feel like pulling out the big dog. It’s so lightweight, and very easy to use. My wife even said that she’s looking forward to using the trimmer now, as she’s a bit scared of the gas one. The blower is also amazing. I “swept” my garage in under 60 seconds with this blower. My gas powered blower is too powerful for sweeping my garage…I mean, I blow stuff off of shelves. I’m very happy with the purchase.

I bought this combo trimmer/blower primarily because I’m sick of pulling out my 100 ft cord. From that perspective, this is a very nice, affordable solution. But if you have heavy duty yard work (lots of weeds or lots to blow), this won’t get the job done. The trimmer does well in some spots, but if you’ve thick grass near edges or around bushes, it doesn’t work too well. The blower is good for grass clippings in your driveway or sidewalk, but if you have a lot of leaves, it will take some time because it’s not powerful enough. Stick with your higher powered gas or electric trimmer and blower. But these are light and easy to use, no frills, so there is some benefit to having them around. On a weekly basis, I’ll use these, but for the heavy duty once-or-twice a year yard cleaning, I’ll revert back to old faithful. Battery life is average, I have the one that came with it and purchased a two-pack to go along. Lasts about 25-30 minutes tops. So if you have an hour of yard work using trimmer/blower, better have at least 2, maybe 3 batteries.

I sold my gas trimmer and bought this package because we have a much smaller yard at our new house. I was a little worried about them being too low powered, but the trimmer did fine the first time I used it.
A nice bonus is that it uses the same batteries as the B&D Matrix / Craftsman Bolt-On series of tools, so I already have other batteries. While I was charging the new battery, I actually used an 8 year old Craftsman battery to trim my yard, and then swapped it to the blower to clean up. Even using an old battery, it didn’t run out of power to get both jobs done.
The blower is actually really handy. I have a full size leaf blower/vacuum combo, but getting out the extension cord makes it too much hassle for small cleanup jobs. I wouldn’t use this battery blower to try to clear a whole yard full of leaves, but it has plenty of power to sweep away dirt and debris from the sidewalk and around my back patio. I’ve already used to sweep out my garage and clean the patio after a pool party.

Very lightweight and simple to use. The battery typically only lasts 25-30 minutes but for someone with a weak disposition, that’s about as long as we need to be outside anyway. I caught it on sale so great bargain. EDIT—-I had previously bought with only 1 20 V 1.5h battery, and it only worked for about 20-30 minutes. I researched and found out other people were buying other 20 V batteries with longer run time so I invested in buying 2 of the 20 V 3.0 h battery and it’s definitely got much longer run time! ALSO, I saw some reviews that said this isn’t for heavy yard work. I have Privet hedge that tries to grow in my lawn and some times I can’t get anyone to mow for me and it gets about knee high and I’ve been wacking it down for two summers. It won’t get the thicker stems, but it gets it down so the mower can get the lower level. I definitely got my money’s worth.
