" ...  Cons: Poorly crafted, and poor materials used in it's making. ... I tightened the extension clamps several times and it still kept sliding down on occasion. ... my jaw dropped.  ...  "
comment
" ...  It gut pretty thick branches of roughly 1/2" thick pretty easily, anything larger it struggled with. ... Now for what I didn't like, I don't like the safety trigger on the shaft, made use a little awkward. ... The head felt flimsy when folded out to 90° and it wobbled some.  ...  "

" ...  It is a little awkward to handle and a little top heavy.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I had the former model (the same unit with a different model number) broke after a year, and this one is made the same. ... The plastic extension is hollow and will crack (esp on a cold day) in normal use. ... I put a clamp around the old one and got a bit more use before another part cracked. ... I wish they would improve the quality of the brittle plastic extension because the device, motor, battery, and cutter all work great and outlast the plastic rod portion.  ...  "
