I bought one as a backup at the direct tools outlet. They had them for $99 including the trimmer head last spring as refurbished. All of those ryobi attachments fit it, i love it for the 10' reach i get with the pole pruner and hedge trimmer. Things i only use a couple times a year. It might not be a good choice for everyday use, but as a backuo and all those crazy attachments i only need a couple times per year it suits me just fine. It is also the trimmer i hand out if someone wants to try out or borrow my equipment.l
