two flaws
First of all I do love my trimmer, BUT what does need improvement is the guard, it's simply not big enough, I have to wear a total face guard to operate and stuff flys and has cut me several times, I bought something similar to what you wear cutting wood. You also have to wear pants and gloves are suggested. 2nd flaw is the line is very hard to wind, I wish it had

Excellent run time
I bought my string trimmer to replace a hard to start gas trimmer. I have used it 4-5 times to trim around my fenced in yard and trees and I haven't had to charge it yet.

Has been a good tool.
Trimmer has been good through summer for my use. I live in a subdivision and don't have a huge yard so this tool is great for that kind of setup. Probably wouldn't recommend this one for big property use and knocking down a lot thick/tall grass. Figuring out how to reload the string was very frustrating at first since manuals and videos were unclear but once you figure it out it is easy. Overall have been satisfied with the trimmer.

Just What I Needed
I needed an upgrade from my 2 stroke trimmer. I was tired of mixing oil and gas and wanted something simple and easy. I already own an array of Flexvolt tools and this was a no brainer. Popped the battery in and away we go. Plenty of power even in Low and can hardly even tell its running. It did seem to to through the line quite quickly though so we will see how that plays out after some more use but overall a great piece of equipment by Dewalt.

I would definitely recommend the 60v string trimmer! It has the same power as a gas trimmer and battery last forever! I'm happy!

Almost as good as gas. Almost.
This trimmer is very powerful. But only if you consider that it is battery powered. I live on a rural, wooded lot and prefer to use a bladed head rather than string. This trimmer just didnt have the torque needed to drive the blades head through tall grass.

I gave it to my sister and it is absolutely perfect for her typical suburban application. She's thrilled to not need to mix gas or pull start her string trimmer ever again.
