Kobalt 40 V Max Cordless String Trimmer - Black and Blue with Battery and Charger is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 42.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded my expectations I was skeptical on this purchase, thinking it would not be quite powerful enough to run other aftermarket attachments, but I am happy with the results. I have troybilt attachments from my 4-cycle and have tested the edger, pole saw(with extension), and hedge trimmer. All work fine. The only issue with them is the pole saw. If it gets in the slightest bind, be ready to have to yank it out. This was not an issue with gas powered, but I'm happy to deal with this as opposed to the issues with gas power and fuel delivery while using the saw. I also have the tiller, but it remains untested. The battery life is also good enough for my half acre with several trees and around 1000 feet of fencing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Reload function is impossible After my fifth reload, with each reload being harder and harder, it is now impossible to remove the part that holds the trimmer string. Total waste of money. They design it so you have to hold down two tabs that are about eight inches apart from one another, while pulling, to remove the cap you need to take off to replace the trimmer string. I have pretty big hands, but it was still nigh impossible even from the first reload to take this string off. Forgot to mention: After about three years of use, the bump feed cap shattered as well. Terribly made. Don’t buy this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 40 volt doesn’t last as long as the 80 volt. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I like ease of changing attachments. This my second 40 volt trimmer. I like this one more. The new design handles better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more cranking or smelling exhaust fumes. I love this attachment capable trimmer especially since it comes with a 4 ah battery and charger. No more pulling on a crank rope or smelling exhaust fumes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable. Easy to use. Makes edging a breeze. Super easy to use. Reliable. Works with aftermarket bump heads. I upgraded the bump head to one that has higher capacity string. The small head means I can squeeze into smaller spaces. Since the handle is compatible with other tools, I wish they would make tools like an edger available for purchase. Maybe they will do that in the future...?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enough charge to cut my whole yard. Battery holds a long charge. My yard is almost an acre and the battery still has 1/2 or more charge left when I get finished.
Date published: 2022-05-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Assembly I didn’t even get to try this product b/c assembling it was so difficult and the instructions were useless. They really need to dumb it down even more so those of us who aren’t used to this equipment can understand. I exchanged it for a Black & Decker which was a breeze to assemble compared to Kobalt Blue. The Kobalt Blue electric mower is AMAZING, though. I highly recommend that over the other brands.The edger just wasn’t good and not all of the preinstalled screws were included. It was just more of a hassle for me to be worth it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Replace the line it comes with for higher quality Liked the power. Didn’t like the line it came pre loaded with constantly getting stuck in the spool
