Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dewalt cordless strimmer This is an excellent product Much as one might expect from Dewalt The performance is very comparable with a small piston engine, even though up to now I have never even had it on full power mode!! I like very much how I can run it very slow in intricate places and it doesn’t throw grass and weeds all over the place: totally controllable!! Even heavy growth is easily tackled on low power!! Having said this I am using Dewalt nylon line it is like wire!! I will be trying some Oregon yellow line next which I hope is as good I now have a number of Dewalt batteries for other products so I never run out of battery power! Folding the unit is a fantastic feature I look after seven family houses and have it in the boot of the car at all times when I am visiting is great for a tidy up for my children’s houses! I can call at family graves and tidy up with out the hassle of transportation of my larger petrol strimmer Along with my little pocket rocket Dewalt blower it makes tidying up almost magical! The quick loading head I brilliant I spent 40 years in garden machinery and sold some of the first weed eater strimmers in the early seventies which we thought excellent then This Dewalt folding cordless powerful strimmer would have seemed like something out of “Dr Who” back then Way above my expectations Brian Gibson.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The disappearing Strimmer & lack of service We can’t comment. Was told it was in store, it wasn’t. Manager phoned to say more in on 10th May. We haven’t heard anything since.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bit of kit with buts..... This is a very nice strimmer. It is powerful, free of cables, and the dirt, noise and problems of 2 stroke. The power does mean the battery isnt going to go all day, uses about half of the 5amp battery in 20 minutes, thats my guestimate. However for someone with a reasonanle size garden, that is more than enough. The folding mechNisim is easy to use and make storage really easy. Well dine dewalt that feature is really well implemented. Time for the buts. 1. Most annoying, the manual does not correspond to the nylon threat dispenser thingy. It is like the design has been updated but not the manual. I did figure it out in the end, but this was quite annoying and poor attention to detail. 2. There is no shoulder strip. The first time I used this, it was a lot of work as Ive not had a strimmer for a few years. By the end my arms were aching. For none trades people who dont do manual work all day, this is somethjng you really have to think about before buying this. A shoulder strap surely should be included in a bit of kit costung this much!! There isnt even anything to attach an after marker strap too. Apart from these two points the tool is very well put together, and feels like a quality item. I brought this from tool station who probided next day delivery for free. They actually did deliver it the next day on a saturday. Quute impressed by their service.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless product coupled with totally disjointed support. Initially disappointed that although advert offered possibility of a free drill with purchase there was no further mention of this once payment was made. I thought at first that battery supplied was faulty as I only got 5-10 minutes run time, however when trying both of my other dewalt batteries run time was as bad, until machine just stopped working. I have been trying since Monday to get product returned but Toolstation support has been pathetic - false promises and no communication.
