Skil just recently introduced the Isio 2-in-1 gardening tool — it’s a new lithium-ion grass and shrub trimmer with a tool-less blade-changing system that allows you to convert it from lawn shears to shrub trimmer and back again easily.
At one pound, the Isio supposedly weighs 50% less than comparable products, and it features soft grip material on the top and bottom of the handle to make extended use more comfortable. The Isio uses laser-cut, diamond-ground blades from Switzerland to make clean and healthy cuts.
The 3.6V lithium-ion battery holds its charge for 18 months, so it won’t be dead next spring when you dust it off. Using the wall-mountable Energy Star-qualified battery charger, Skil claims its 5-hour charge time is three times faster than other garden products on the market, and the charge lasts 33% longer.
The Isio comes with the shrub trimmer blade, the grass shear blade, and the charger for $80 at either Lowe’s or Amazon.
