This is a good product. It is easy to handle, lightweight and very efficient. Efficiency is the most important thing. We live in Phoenix. It is a desert area. The ground is dry, hard and has a tremendous amount of weed growth. This product takes care of the weeds and growth in our backyard. It is very good at really cutting low and keeping the yard looking great. I would recommend this product for people of any age. I am an older gentleman and it works just fine for me. The price was right/fair and I bought an extra battery charger to keep handy so that I can continue to work beyond the life of the first battery (about 1 hour) and keep alternating the batteries, as needed. Well worth the extra cost.
