General Comments
This FLYMO Sabre Trim Cordless Grass Trimmer is a good product which is well thought-out and engineered. The easy click interchangeability for different tools is great but all of this is let down by the battery. I've used my sabre cut only to trim my hedge every two-three weeks during the growing season and already (after 18 months) I have to buy a new battery because the current one isn't holding charge - that's after a total of no more than approx 20 uses for an hour maximum each time. The 24V system is supposed to be 'long-life'. The battery costs nearly as much as the product itself so beware. Finally, the grass strimmer attachment (which I bought only last week before battery went US) doesn't have a 'bump-feed' system - you have to turn it upside down every time it breaks off and pull the cord out by hand - a major (and regular) annoyance.
