When i purchased this trimmer I had high hopes. It come with 2 different attachments. Both attachments dont trim hair hardly at all. Took 7 passes to trim a inch section. The motor is fairly quite when no attachment is used. The locking feature is a great idea however once I atttach a trimmer the unit becomes annoying loud. I've checked and rechecked to make sure I had it secured correctly. the trimmer does not o it's job in the least bit. Sadly I would not recommend it to anyone.
