Finally, a high quality grass shear
Great tool for trimming grass. Only downside is the clear plastic shield on the front of the unit. It's huge and unnecessary. It prevents the unit from trimming grass between downspouts/conduits/pipes and foundation. Remove it and you'll be good to go. Best features are it is well built, powerful, and uses your 18V Makita Li-On batteries.
