Nicely put together
I am a former DeWalt employee, so putting product loyalty aside, I love this tool!
It does everything I need it to do. Edging takes some getting use to, but once I got the hang of it it worked great.
It does seem to use too much line, but I think that was more me getting use to it.
Very happy, especially since I am so heavily invested in the 20v tool line already.

Really good trimmer, but design flaw gets it very dirty
I am VERY impressed with this trimmer. It works even better than I expected it to. And I was using it for some serious weed destruction. For everyday trimming needs, it will be SUPERB. The battery life is excellent. I was getting a good 30 mins on a 5ah battery going full throttle, high-speed pretty much non-stop.

The only problem I have with it is the motor is mounted at the bottom of the shaft which means it gets tons of debris thrown on to it. The little mesh guard seems to keep stuff away from the motor, but the guard itself gets completely clogged. And the design of the guard makes it almost impossible to clean. We're talking getting out tweezers to pull grass out of the guard. I found I can put one of my boy's socks over the head and keep the grass from getting in.

Great for roaming around yard. I like how you can set it down and do other things. Not quite as powerful as my gas trimmer but perfect for my needs.

Present for my wife
I bought this trimmer for my wife, for a battery powered trimmer it is very strong. It's not as powerful as a big gas trimmer,but it will trim and edge well. The batteries last about an half hour. My wife is able to use this without any problems, my gas trimmer is too heavy. We would buy it again.

Great Tool!
Great Tool. Just depress the trigger and go to work. No loud oil-gas motor throwing off fumes. Plenty of power and plenty of duration to allow me to finish my large yard including edging the margin of grass at the 80' driveway. Buy it. you will like it.

Awesome trimmer
Great weed eater. Can do my entire yard with about 1/4 of a 5ah battery. Being 6ft 2 in tall this weed eater is easy on the back allowing me to stand up straight and cut instead of stooping over with other trimmers that I have used. Plus I can use the batteries in all my other tools.

Great Trimmer
We have about 3/4 acre and so of it is wooded. This trimmer handles the grass edging and the larger weeds in the wooded areas. I can do the whole place on one battery. This was a great purchase..

Great for the average home.
I have a big yard and with both batteries I can just about get it all done but for the average yard this will get it all. I think it's just awesome to be able to grab this thing and go it has plenty of power went through some tall grass with no problems that I wouldn't of had with a grass trimmer. Would buy this again . Told my son and he bought one too.

dewalt string trimmer
I'm well satisfied with the trimmer, it runs a long time on a charge and is easy to use.If the battery don't last like you think it should you're probably using it like a brushcutter.I also like the fact that i can interchange batteries with my other dewalt power tools I was hoping for a pre-wound replacement spool but a spool last a long time. This trimmer was recomended by a friend and likewise i would also give it good review

How long is the 20V MAX 5.0Ah Cordless Lithium-Ion Brushless String Trimmer?
JBo on Jan 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes from end to end when ready for use the length is 67-15/16". With battery off the unit is 66" long. This was done putting the rotating hub on a hard surface and measuring from that surface vertically to the end. Should be +/-1/8" or better accuracy.
Thanks

Is the battery new or reconditioned when purchasing the reconditioned tool?
Tigerbacker70 on Apr 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The batteries are not guaranteed to be new. Generally, the batteries are the same batteries that were returned with the trimmer. The manufacture has tested the batteries and guaranteed them for a year.
Could anyone help me how to replace the string.
Rene on Aug 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Turn spool clockwise to unlock as shown in Figure 9. The
white nub inside the spool will rotate away from the spool
window to indicate it is unlocked.Pull the spool straight out to remove.
4.
Remove any dirt and grass from the spool and housing.
5. First, wind new line in the channel of the spool closest to the
holding slots (10C) as shown in Figure 10.
6. Place the end of the cutting line
FIG. 11
(10A) into the retaining hole
(10B).
7.
Wind the cutting line onto the
spool in the direction of the
arrow on the bottom of the
spool. Make sure to wind the
line on neatly and in layers. Do
not crisscross (Fig. 11).
8. When the wound cutting line
reaches the beginning of the
holding slots (10C), cut the line
approximately 4 inches (106 mm).

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
