Had the bent shaft version of this for about 2.5yrs, also have the hedgetrimmer and polesaw attachments that fit on the end.
It is a light machine so makes a good hedgetrimmer when holding above shoulder height for long periods. Once you get the knack it starts easily from cold and always starts easily when hot. The attachments work better than I expected, the hedgetrimmer gives a very nice cut and the polesaw gets through decent sized branches.
After 2.5yrs the machine is starting to fall apart. The connection point on the shaft is now loose & sloppy and gets very hot to touch.
Usage has been moderate, we only have a 1/4 acre section but we have hedges and a few trees plus a lot of edges so all the attachments are regularly used and probably contributed to the loose connection point on the shaft.
I think we'll be lucky to get 3 yrs use out of this but it wasn't too expensive and has been used regularly so this isn't too bad.
Probably a good option for light domestic usage but not really designed for large blocks
Maybe, it depends on what you're after.
