E-Drive machines also produce less noise during operation, for a more pleasant user experience.Users have the option to use the trimmer in horizontal mode for ordinary trimming, & also in vertical mode, for edging along lawn borders. Operated vertically, the ST5530's innovative Wheel Edge Guide helps to achieve exact, professional looking lawn borders - simply run the wheel along the verge, & the trimmer does the rest. Whichever way you choose to use the trimmer, doing so is always comfortable thanks to the trimmer's ergonomic, adjustable secondary handle. Also beneficial is the ST5530's effort reducing automatic line feed feature.Available separately & compatible with the ST5530 is the CM100 wheeled base. The wheeled base attaches over the head of the trimmer, allowing it to be rolled over the surface of your lawn. When used in conjunction with the base the trimmer cuts at a consistent height, effectively converting the tool into a lightweight, powerful lawnmower - for a fraction of the cost.

This replaced my old, lower powered, b and d which burnt out after long use. I trim the headstones around my local churchyard and this higher powered model cut through the april fresh green grass like a knife through unrefrigerated butter. Compared to many battery or fuel operated trimmers this model is relatively lightweight and so i prefer to use an extension cable. I am very pleased thus far. There is just one niggle: compared to my old machine the manufacturer seems to have saved a few pence on the length of the cable; like many other manufacturers of items that require a fair length of cable. The length supplied on my machine is approx 6 metres. Since i use a very long extension cable in the churchyard anyway this is not so much of a problem for me but it's not so helpful in the domestic setting. I recommend a plug-in safety rcd adaptor (suitable for 2 or 3 core cables) and always wear safety goggles/spectacles. Both of these can be obtained from tooled-up.Com if you haven't already got them.

I have only put the trimmer together and tried it out on a little patch of grass. Seems to do everything it says on the packaging.
