This 7.2 volt grass shear/shrubber is light enough for any woman to handle. The shear model weighs only 2.1 pounds. The cutting capacity is 3/8 inch and the total blade length is 4 inches and 6 inches. The 4 inch blad is used on grass and light weeds and the 6 inch blade is used on shrubs. It comes with a portable charger and an extension handle. The handle can bed used as a handhelt unit or with the extension handle for better reach. It is has lock-off button which prevents accidental starting. The scabbard and sheath keep the operator from coming in contact with the sharp blades when the tool is not in use or blades getting nicked or damaged when the toll is in storage. The unit has easy to folllow assemble instructions. I purchased this product to mainly shear my shrubs as many of my plants have thorns. It works great on them and then I found that the grass shear works just as nice up around plants that are not in mulch.
