It weighs less than 2kg and has a 280 watt motor. The cutting size is a good 230mm with the handle being a good metre high, which is fine for your average size person but no good for the backs of taller people.
On the top there is the handle, with the orange trigger underneath, cleverly protected inside the guard. Just down the handle on the top, is the second handle which is designed to help manoeuvre the unit around, giving it a good swinging motion.
There are a couple of hooks for the power cable to hook onto, which means that the wire can be kept neat instead of wrapping it around your hand and elbow, which tends to tangle the cable up no matter how careful you are.
The cutting area is one of those 'pro-tap' features, which means that you simply have to lightly drop the unit on its spool head and the cutting line comes out on its own.
Sadly, even though the idea is a good one, the actual feature is pretty poor as it really doesn't work on this one, no matter how hard or gently you 'drop it'. In the end I still had to take off the spool cover, take out some more line out of the spool, put the cover back on and slot the whole lot back into the unit.... which takes more time than normal due to the way that thee spool locks in.
When the cutting line if out it works well, with the line being snapped to the right length as the line hits the little metal rod on the black covering of the spool area, this stops any excess line flicking your toes.
This is not a bad trimmer and does a good job in what it does. However, the spool does not automatically cut the line as it's supposed to which really slows me down when trimming my lawn. But other than that this is not bad for the price.
The other downside is the fact that the cutting head does not twist as some do in order to get to the edges of the lawn a lot easier.
The cost of this is about £25
