Good trimmer
I purchased this to go along with all the other Dewalt tools and this does the job really well. The one gripe that I have with it is that the guard that comes with it is quite thin. Perhaps it is user error and I need to do a better job of angling the trimmer, but having at least double the width would be nice (I think there is an add-on but still...) I found that the battery lasts enough for me. I do like the bump feed to increase the line.

Have owned the string trimmer for a couple of weeks now and not that impressed with it. Throws a lot of grass all over your pants and shoes. Shroud needs to be bigger and taller

Quality buy!!
I needed a trimmer for some time, but I’ve always used fuel powered trimmers and was hesitant to buy this one. After extensive research I decided to make the purchase and this trimmer exceeded my expectations.

It has the power of a commercial trimmer. It’s lightweight, balanced, has a low/high setting for regulating the power output and conserving battery life and paired with a .095 line can cut through anything in its path. Battery operated tools are always a hassle when the battery dies mid project, but it had two bars of battery life even after I was finished.

The one downside to this product is the small guard, as it does not provide enough protection. But after all it offers, the good outweighs that minor detail.

Perfect tool for small and large lawn maintenance!
After owning and loving the 20v string trimmer, I decided to purchase the 60v as I have a couple extra flex-volt 6AH batteries and absolutely love how these trimmers perform. I have a 1 acre lot with a bunch of landscaping, flower beds, a winding creek going through my property and a fairly long driveway that I like to keep trimmed up. I have no problem getting it all done with the 9AH (3AH @ 60v battery that comes with the kit. When I let the creek go 2.5 [spring] weeks without trimming I chose to swap the battery part way through with the extra one I kept in my hoodie pocket to help minimize full battery discharge / cycling but I have no doubt I could have finished without the swap.
No need for gas tools, I wish these were available when I was a young lawn maintenance entrepreneur.
Yes it has a small guard, yes I’ve been hit in the shin with landscape stones — not anymore than with “commercial grade” gas trimmers from Husq and Stihl. Boots, trousers, and eye protection should be standard PPE for any string trimming operation. One benefit now is the hearing protection and anti-vib gloves can stay on the shel!

Exactly what I was looking for
I bought this about a month ago after doing much research between cordless OPE equipment. The balance is exactly where it should be. Coming from using gas powered commercial Stihl, it feels comparable. I typically only use it on the low speed setting, and that's plenty to get the job done. I can do a 10k sq/ft corner property 4 times on the same battery including edging. Bought this first of the 60v OPE line and it's left me excited to use the 60v chainsaw, 60v blower, and 20v FlexVolt mower that just came in. Can't wait to see what's next in the FlexVolt OPE line!

Amazing power and convenience.
I purchased this two months ago, and as a replacement for a gas powered trimmer, it works incredibly. There is no lack of power, it is actually too strong for the string that comes on it! I recommend changing the black/yellow line with a .095 commercial grade line! It has just as much If not more power as any gas trimmer ive ever used, without the vibration and numbness from user fatigue. This is one of my favorite DeWalt tools.

Bought this trimmer and use it all the time. Only thing I would like to see is a strap to carry it. Updated to the easy string head.

I have had the trimmer for over a month now and am extremely happy I made the purchase. I have charged the batter only once and have made about 7 cuts with it going strong on an average property.
