          I have an older Ryobi trimmer that doesn't have a replaceable blade...big drawback. This one does and it trims very well. It has an attachment that directs the clipping to where you want them to drop, rather than in the hedge itself. Battery life is good...I can cut most of the hedges on all sides of the home without replacing the battery, depending on growth. I have no complaints so far.
          Pros: Accurate, All In One, Cuts Well, Easy to Store, Easy to Use, clears away trimmings

          The Perky-Pet Copper Panorama Wild Bird Feeder is sure to attract many birds to your backyard. The cutting-edge design of this feeder allows the seed to dispense into the tray and stop dispensing once the tray is full. As the birds continue to dine from the circular perch, the seed is replenished into the tray so it remains consistently full. This feeder also features the Sure-Lock cap system, an innovative squirrel proof feature which ensures the lid stays put and squirrels can’t get into the seed. The Copper Panorama holds 2 lbs. of seed and features an eye-catching copper finish. Remember to clean your wild bird feeders every two weeks with a mild soap and water solution.

          The birds have really flocked to this feeder. I have several in my back yard, but this one seems to draw in the smaller birds. The squirrel are attracted to it, but thankfully they don't hold on long.

          These three Philips 50-Watt Halogen GU10 Flood Light Bulbs emit a bright 430 lumens of light and are rated for a long service life of up to 3000 hours. Great for accent lighting, track lighting and pendant fixtures, these bulbs install in fixtures that accept GU10 bases. Using 50 watts of energy, the bulbs are also dimmable to allow for varying light preferences.

          The Rino-Tuff Universal 0.095 in. x 250 ft. gear shaped trimmer line is designed for medium-duty use. This Universal line is ideal for trimming and edging grass. The package contains enough line for approximately 12 refills on a standard trimmer spool.

          I was especially thrilled that the packaging allowed the string to be installed easily and the cutting tool worked better than a knife or scissors. Anyone who purchase string for weed-wackers know how difficult and challenging it is to install on the reel...the packaging helped considerably and the string worked well once installed.

          I had an Echo edger for several years and then the head went out. It was a simple task to switch out the old one and install the new one, but no instructions were in the package. I figured it out. This performed like it did when I first purchased the edger. It seemed like a good quality product.

          Answer: 
          I can cut all the hedges around the house itself and they cover all 4 sides. When I start the perimeter hedges, I get about 1/3rd through and have to put in a new battery
           
          You'll appreciate the performance of this trimmer head from Pivotrim, which works with most gas curved shaft and straight shaft trimmers. The line pivots to prevent line breakage when trimming against hard surfaces such as chain-link fence, trees and concrete, saving you the downtime of reloading line.
