Editorial Review
The American Gardener YardStick cordless edger and trimmer is a great two-in-one yard tool for the homeowner; this battery-powered trimmer converts to a rolling lawn edger with just a turn of the handle using the Quickedge Transition design. The 24-volt Power-Core double ball-bearing motor with Power-Core deep discharge battery will give you up to 45 minutes of cutting time on just one charge. A 10-inch cutting swath makes quick work of yard trimming, and when you need more line, just bump the head and it feeds out more .08 commercial-grade line automatically. We like the symmetry and nice balance of this trimmer in hand, too; it comes with two comfortable grips and a hassle-free start switch. The unit stores in the included wall-mounted charger, which indicates battery status with red and green lights. --Kris Jensen-Van Heste

Here is what people are saying about the American Gardener YS24 24-Volt YardStick Cordless Edger and Trimmer
3 Star Rating  "Stopped Charging after 1 year of use" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User from Wilmington, IL United States
Although this trimmer was a bit heavy to hold for long periods of time, I liked it very much. However the charger stopped working after only 1 year. This is my second yardman that stopped holding a charge. It's time for me to find a more lightlight durable brand.
 
3 Star Rating  "Only For the Lightest of Light Jobs" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User from Florida
Like many people, I was tired of the strenuous task of getting my gas powered trimmer to start and having to mix gas and oil. In addition, it had a split line spool that was very, very difficult to wind correctly without tangling. I was hoping this yardstick would be the ultimate solution that would solve my problems since I had a relatively small lot. My hopes were dashed and by the third time I used it I was back in the market for a new gas trimmer.

It's not to say that this trimmer doesn't do what it says it does. However, if you've ever used a gas trimmer, getting used to the lack of power was very frustrating. On top of the fact that it's about half as powerful as a typical gas trimmer, it only had a single line. That's a double hit that caused what was a 15 minute trimming job to take 25 aggravating minutes.

The trimmer has difficulty trimming thick St. Augustine grass. Trying to dig out sprinklers? - forget about it. The line that came with the trimmer actually melted and stuck together causing on the order of six or seven stoppages each time I used it. I did get some thicker, heavier duty line at Lowe's and that solved the melting problem and actually helped on the wear of the line. I would definitely recommend doing that. The unit siezed up on me in the brutal summer heat here in Florida the second time I used it, however I came back in a half hour and it was fine. This trimmer is very compact and puts more pressure on your forearms instead of your back like the longer gas trimmers. My forearms (and I have strong ones) were very fatigued after using it each time.

I have to admit, there was no better feeling than just picking up the trimmer and pressing a button and you're off... but it's just not worth it. The battery life was fine for me as I never had an issue with that. The yardstick is for thin bladed grass and the lightest of light duty jobs. If you are looking for a magical solution for your gas trimmer, this is not it. I just bought a Craftsman 4-Cycle trimmer to replace it that is awesome and I hope to sell the yardstick at a garage sale for $20 or so.
 
4 Star Rating  "Love it"

This is not as strong as my regular corded 20 dollar black n decker trimmer, BUT IT DOES THE JOB. I only need this to trim the edges on my grass lawn and that is it. That's all I use it for. I don't thing this is suitable for heavy trimming like lrg bushes and stuff. Unlike my corded trimmer, this is single string only but ... IT DOES THE JOB. 4 stars because it doesn't dig all the way in through the soil.

YS-24 assembled easily,has good power from 24 volt set up. Extra thick trimmer line lowered the number of times the line broke. The tap feature works once in a while although its easy to advance it by hand.

The connection from charger to battery connection is poorly designed.

All in all this is a bargain.
 
1 Star Rating  "Complete frustration" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User from Kirkwood, MO United States
The yardstick works fine (not great power but as much as you can expect from a cordless trimmer). After two years it stopped working so I ordered a new battery and charger. I have currently been waiting seven weeks for the replacement (and it's summer). I have had to call at least 4 times to find out the reason for the delay and as far as I know the excuse is back order (the date for delivery changes every time I call). I am beginning to wonder if it will ever arrive and perhaps they have no intentions of filling the request. Since this has been such an ordeal I would highly recommend not buying this product. As it is I am being forced to purchase another brand to get through the summer. Their customer service is awful - the very least they could do is inform the customer of the delay.

This replaced a Worx, which was under-powered at best. It's heavier, but it has the power to edge and trim without dragging 100' of power cord around or deal with the noise and fuel of a power trimmer. Highly recommend for standard trimming and edging. It probably won't clear a field of hay.
