Rated 3 out of 5 by from Frustration Yes.. it has great power. Yes, it's a beast and will cut big weeds. I didn't have any problem with the battery or the charge lasting a long time. What I'm not crazy about is: 1) The bump mechanism gets clogged with weeds and stops working so I have to take it apart and try to clean the mechanism out, which is difficult because you can't get to the part where the weeds wrap around. 2) The head part is REALLY hard to get off. 3) The string is pretty wimpy. I've only used the .80 size but I'd like to try the heavier stuff but can't find it anywhere. 4) The trimmer is pretty heavy for me. I don't know why it doesn't come with a strap of some kind. I'm going to have to rig something because I have to rest my arms often. 5) It throws alot of debris back onto me. The guard is just too small and doesn't keep weed clippings from coming back and hitting me. I really should have a full face shield instead of just safety glasses.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from terrible head design used this 3 times; line breaks constantly, bump feature works extremely poorly. Trying to reload the string to see if it was just crossed in the head, and the entire head is seized.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Horrible Head-Design; Otherwise Outstanding Tool! I make sure that I do not write reviews until I have used a product for a good while. I bought this 10 months ago, used it several times a week for an average of a couple hours at a time, for several weeks (until county weed abatement requirements were met). I am a pretty loyal DeWalt tool owner for about 20 years. They are my preference. I have about a dozen tools using the 20V/60 system. The GOOD... This trimmer definitely has power that rivals gas trimmers. The battery life is not amazing, but what one would expect for the work that it has been doing. Having to swap batteries forces me to take a break. It is well balanced, well-designed, comfortable, and rugged. I like that housing on the battery-end has what is essential a built-in hook to hang it vertically. As far as quality, overall design, feel, cost and power, the tool is fantastic! The BAD... I'm pretty smart, but simple arrows molded onto the head would be nice to remind me of which way to wind it. (Because, this head can spin both ways). I agree with another reviewer that removing the battery takes some brute force at times. Sometimes I have to smack it quite firmly with the heel of my hand, and even that doesn't work sometimes. Sometimes I have to knock it against a stump, tree branch/trunk, 2x4, etc. The well-intentioned (and otherwise well-designed) guard around the battery hinders this process. I can overlook this, but can understand why this would be unacceptable to others, though. The UGLY... Where the product was demoted from 5 stars is that the head pretty much seized-up at the end of last season. I figured I would get to it later, now it's spring and it's that time. I am certainly an advanced DIYer (professional aircraft mechanic and wind turbine technician). So I tried to remove the head... nope! Not happening! Not without breaking something! I can barely wind string, and can't replace the head. So, I download the PDF manual to make sure that I'm not missing something. Problem is the manual for the tool shows a completely different head than what I have! Are you kidding me?!?! I admit that I am biased towards thinking positively of DeWalt tools, but this one did not measure-up. I buy them because they LAST, this one didn't handle 1 month. Nothing's broken (that I know of), it's just seized from dirt/dust. Again, are you kidding me?! It's a trimmer! I so badly WANT to recommend this tool, but I can't, because if I can't wind the string, then it's useless!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Defective The battery will not charge fully. And when I was able to run it, it slings debris everywhere—much more then other string trimmers. Also, why does Dewalt make it so difficult to use the 90-day warranty to return their products?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from netting grabber! I bought this tool expecting ease of use and power for tall grass. It is fairly easy to use, but more weight than I would like for long trim jobs. My main gripe is that the first time I used it, I got too close to some plant netting used to protect the flowers from Deer and (Zip!) I wound a couple of feet of netting around the cutting head in no time. I got what I could reach off with my pocket knife, but noticed that some is still wound up inside the gearing near the motor. I could remove the housing and get it loose, but that might void the warranty. I am looking for a repair station to get this done under warranty now.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Trimhead Sucks I've used this 10 times and replaced the string once. The trimhead tab shattered. The trimhead loads up with grass between the head and the guard. The trimhead shows substantial wear on the plastic almost immediately upon use. I own many DeWalt tools - blower, chainsaw, several drills etc. I am really disappointed in the quality of the cutting head on this tool. It is poorly engineered.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Powerful But Flawed I've owned it for 8 months and excepting the need to purchase a guard I liked it. Now I've just come in from cutting a small area of late season wild grasses and weeds. Both are still green and the tougher stems and bits of grass get into the small gap at t he bottom of the spool cover, wrap around and pack the space. When that happens the line will no longer feed. You have to stop and tediously clear the jam or work with very short strings. THIS IS A MAJOR FLAW! STOPPING EVERY FEW MINUTES TO CLEAR THE JAMS OFFSETS THE SPEED AND POWER OF THE TRIMMER. I had an old inexpensive B&D trimmer with a better designed head. A lot less powerful but not so prone to jams. I NO LONGER RECOMMEND THIS TRIMMER. DW YOU'VE LET THE SIDE DOWN.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THIS!!! I've owned my DEWALT trimmer for a couple years now and I have never had a problem! I love how light it is! It does a great job! I trim all over my farm with this and by the time my battery needs charged I'm needing a break anyway. I have a back up battery because my blower uses the same kind, so I always have one on charger and one in use. However, I am ready for a break by the time I need a new battery. I have told all my girlfriends about this because it is so much lighter and easier to use than any other trimmer I have had. It's quieter also. I seriously love this product and if mine ever broke, I would go get another one! I love not having to mess with gas/oil and wondering if my trimmer is going to start! This has been a lifesaver for me! So easy to use and with just as much power as a gas trimmer! I love it!!
