That's a fair deal actually.

I paid about that for my Tanaka IIRC, and it hadn't go the extra
attachments.

One thing to look out for, is that there is no way for nettle stalks to
get behind the cutter head..these shred into a tough fibre like sisal.

I wouldn't buy anything manufactured by Techtronics Ryobi or for that
matter much from any of their brands with the possible exception of
some Milwaukee items.

Ryobi is a lower middle range product with not particularly good
mechanics in general. This particular one is very heavy.
