This trimmer is awesome. The item arrives in 2 boxes. The first box is the postage box, and second the item box. Even my wife that is petite can use it. It did work out her arms quite a bit. The trimmer is easy to assemble and instruction manual well written. The blade spins super fast and is extremely sharp. It is able to cut through a branch easily and without trouble. It extends very well and adjusting the angle takes seconds. The cord length of 9.2ft is decent and acceptable. Overall, the trimmer has been used tremulously around our house and works perfectly.
