Use it in my yard instead of the noisy gas trimmer in all the same places, around my tent (and loaned it to RV types) at music festivals / races / campgrounds to clear temporary 'yards', use it on trails to manage overgrowth miles away from gas or electricity. Very versatile and durable. Only two drawbacks or 'cons' of note. One will be that some users will find it heavy at first and take some practice to get a good quick pendulum swing, but this is subjective and I don't have any problem. Second, mine came with the blade sharpened a little sloppy and at two different angles but it works great nonetheless, just cost it a star, otherwise I'd give it five.

I have used grass whips before, so I am familiar with them. This one is a piece of garbage. The blade was not finished. Whoever ground the bevel quit when they were about halfway done. I did not see this in the store because the blade had a cardboard cover on it; otherwise I never would have bought it in the first place. I spent a half hour working on the blade with a dremel tool but it still wasn't sharp. This blade is so dull that it cannot be sharpened with home tools; it needs a power grinder to remove more metal. Next, the handle was covered with some sort of lacquer that makes it very slippery, so it had a tendency to slip out of my hands when swinging it. As a consequence, I had to grip it very tightly and my hands got very tired from doing so. The handle on this tool should be left unfinished for a better grip. Finally, the metal strap that holds the blade to the handle bent out of shape when I tried to cut heavy grass with it. It would bend about tweny degrees after three or four whacks, then I would swing it in the other direction (backhand) and it would bend back. I will be bringing this back for a refund.

    I wasn't sure what to expect since I've never had the need for one of these. After half an hour, the blade was bent and the nuts were coming off the bolts, even though I had tightened them beforehand.

      Comments about ACE HARDWARE Ace 14in Blade Weed Cutter:

      I read the reviews before buying but it is very small, cheap and actually at my local store in a rural area so I tried it. Firstly the wood didn't break within the first day of use like some reviews said. It may break later but not yet.

      Some people mentioned the screws not being tight enough. Well the shock impact of hitting weeds knocks the screws loose. I suppose if this didn't happen, then the wood would absorb the shock and slowly break. I have to constantly retighten the screws but it is better than a weed whacker where I have to constantly thread this fine string. I retighten the screws about as often as I would thread the cord on a weed whacker and tighening screws is easy. Be careful though, do not neglect this or a bolt will fly out and HIDE in the grass/weeds and take a long time to find.

      For the sharpness. I have two 10+ year old large knives that I cut food with. They are slightly rusty and I have never sharpened them. These knives are far sharper than how this weed cutter comes out of the store. I suspect some of the blame is on our lawsuit-happy society--right now the POTUS is getting sued just for blocking people on Twitter and that's how crazy of things people sue over so if some idiot cuts someone with this, they may sue. That being said, if I swing it hard enough, it will cut weeds. Weeds with light roots it uproots instead. As for grass, it doesn't cut that as easily as weeds because the grass bends so I will need to sharpen it.

      This product is also good because stores actually keep these in stock. Most stuff like this takes 2-3 weeks to order.

      It cuts about as fast as a weed whacker but with more physical exercise. It's also quiet so if it's hot in the summer you can use this at 5am and not wake people up.

          We are restoring 5 acres of our land back to prairie and this tool is so helpful in controlling the nasty thistle. Felt like I was golfing and drove it 300 yards with one swing. We love it. We oil it after use to keep it in tip top condition.

              I have always thought that weed eaters were a pain to use, so I thought this would be a great alternative. However it does not matter how much you whack away at your weeds this thing will not cut them. It only knocks them over so they can pop right back up the next day. Ugh.

                    I bought 2 of these to cut weeds on a new account. The weeds were too stout for my line trimmers but this cutter mowed them right down. I owned one of these years ago before the era of weed wackers but couldn't find it. What a nice tool!

                        I bought this thinking to replace an old scythe. It is so dull it only breaks grass stalks by sheer force. I think they forgot to finish sharpening it. I may take it back to the store I bought it at to see if they will or can put a better edge on it. If not, I am returning it for a refund.

                        I am 5 feet 2 inches tall and have to slightly bend over to use this and my back hurts after a while. I wonder why it is so short or maybe I'm using it wrong. I try to swing it back and forth like a pendulum. It is good on dandelions but that's about it.
