1.0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware, May 20, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Five minutes after I used this for the first time the grass clipper blade popped off. It was then that I noticed the design flaw. There is an o-ring that a disc rotates in which makes the blade move. This o-ring tore within those first five minutes of use. I sent it back and had a replacement sent and the same thing happened. That ring tears and it effects(or seems to at least) how well the blades cut. They begin to not so much cut as bend the grass.

For some reason, they did not design the hedge trimmer the same way. The o-ring sits recessed in a metal plate seems to prevent it from being torn.

It's too bad really. I like the telescoping handle and the lithium battery. It seems to have plenty of power and it's nice and light weight. However, it seems that the way the blade drive mechanism is designed, this clipper will only work for the lightest of duty trimming and maybe not even then.

Save your money and put it towards a more durable clipper.
