It does look like a toy, but this thing is a work horse!! I tried it for a few minutes in a very small yard and was sold! Yesterday was my day off so decided to give it a work out. Did some trimming and mowing around the yard, then took it out back where the taller weeds are and just tried this and that and soon was cutting 14" tall weeds! I couldn't believe the power it had and the mower deck actually mulches the weeds up if you go back and forth so there's not much to look at when you're finished. This is the best weed eater I've ever used other than my brother's gas powered one, but the B&D mulched up what he had weed eated the day before. Also it is so easy to push doesn't hurt my back like regular weed eaters you have to hold and everything is perfectly even with the deck on when you're finished I used it a lot yesterday with the string that came on it and never ran out. It's not for a big yard, but is perfect for mowing under bushes and anything our zero turn can't get up close to. I am a 61 yr. old female and have used a lot of equipment and I highly recommend this three in one (also mulches) to anyone. I haven't tried the edger yet but actually enjoyed my day off with my new TOY!
