Why do they call it "cordless" when it uses string

This question is from 40-Volt Electric Cordless Straight Shaft String Trimmer
Asked by
Fresno, CA

March 4, 2016
I have had horrible luck with string trimmers in the past. Hoping to find something that uses blades instead of that annoying string. Why are these products called "cordless" when some kind of cord is used to knock down weeds? The category "cordess" raised my hopes, which are now dashed. Every product description I opened uses string, which is a variant of "cord."

Answer: 
Some trimmers, such as this one, has a replaceable head, meaning you can take off the head that uses string, and replace it with a head that uses plastic or metal blades. They call those brush cutter heads. That is what I am going to do.

They are referring to how it is powered not the type of cutting. Cordless as opposed to electric trimmers with a power cord that plug into a power outlet.

Answer: 
Cord in this case refers to electrical cord that powers the trimmer, not the plastic string that trims or cuts grass/weed. I'd be eager to get a stringless trimmer myself. Even better if it uses air rather than blades.

It is easy to load the line onto the spool, or at least easier than other trimmers I've had. It automatically advances, so no bumping or anything, and that auto-feed seems to work well, unlike other trimmers I've had.

I'd say it's probably a little difficult to wind the string yourself (if you decide to go that route instead of buying prewound spools), but line feed is automatic. No bumping or manual involvement required.

Answer: 
Yes it is simple to load. Simply turn the trimmer upside down and release the string holder, wind the new string according to the arrows and replace the string holder. My trimmer advances the string automatically so no need to worry about the manual process. Yours should do the same. Good luck, I hope this helped!

I don't recall the exact time, but it is pretty fast. I might say 30 minutes or so. I know it's less than an hour, so if you take a good break to rest and have a drink, it'll be ready fast enough to get back to it.

I've only charged it out of the box, so far, but it took less than an hour. So, if fully depleted, I'd say it would take, at most, 1-1.5 hrs. to charge. But go with whatever the manufacturer says. :-D

It has an adjustable cutting power so, as long as the stems aren't woody (wild grape vines require clippers), you shouldn't have too much of a problem.
If you tell us what you're tackling, might be easier to decide whether or not this is the machine you need.

Yes to both questions. 1. I have used my 40 volt trimmer to cut small cherry trees that sprout in my lawn and flower bed. 2. Height of the grass is not a problem except that it takes a "touch" to keep long grass from getting wrapped around the spool. Advance into tall grass slowly.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 738 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent tool Very pleased with product. Llightweight, easy to maneuver with litlle assembly required. Up and running in minutes. 40 volts provides ample power for all my needs and run time more than sufficient to complete the job without recharging battery. Battery charges quickly for next use. My only negative comment is that the .065 diameter string is not strong enough for use as an edger. Perhaps a .080 diameter string would do a better job, but I found this tool does not do a very good job edging the walkways and driveways, but does an exellent job for grass and weeds when used in the normal position. May 10, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Replacement for similar B&D models, but now cordless I like B&D because this is only the third similar trimmer I have purchased in the last 25-30 years. The first two were corded. The trimmer was easy to assemble and being cordless provides better maneuverability and range of use. I'm having a little trouble getting comfortable with the extra safety features. For example, 1) to make the unit run you have to hold down the lock off button and, at the same time, squeeze the trigger; if you release the trigger you have to again go through the same steps to initiate running the unit. 2) You cannot begin recharging the battery immediately when the battery runs out of power. You have to first let the battery cool off. April 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Long lasting I broke my old 14 volt trimmer that would take 2 batteries to trim my yard. This new 40 volt trimmer does the whole yard with battery to spare. I really like the speed control feature, real power when you need it which is not very often. Most of the time the setting on 2 gets the job done. Auto feed feature is great. Glad my old trimmer broke so I could get this bad boy. Buy it, you will like it. May 17, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by wouldnt buy I bought the 40 volt with 2 spare batteries becausd i have a large lot . It wouldnt cut nothing . I had to stay at it in the same place longer than necessary . Thiught the battery wasnt fully charged . Started the next day and same thing . I took it back and wouldnt advise any one into buying one . Junk junk junk . May 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love it This trimmer works great. I have a 50 by 200 foot lot and get my trimming done on one full battery. I've done the yard 3 times now and never fussed with the trimmer line. It's a great product . May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Look no more, this is the one! Tired of gas trimmers? This is what you need. It has plenty of power for the thick stuff and battery lasting low settings for the lighter stuff. I have 1/2 acre with privacy fence and flower beds and still have 1 out of 4 lights left on battery when done. This trimmer is lightweight and you will notice how quickly you get done, I have cut my time from hour and half to 30 min. Best trimmer I have ever purchased! May 8, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by String Advance Issues, Short Battery Life Due to all the high ratings I thought this was a no-brainer selection but this product works so poorly I am going to return it. STRING ADVANCE The main issue is the string does not advance to a sufficient length so you can't get a good clean cut up against a wall or sidewalk without continuously stopping to manually advance the string. If you let the trimmer advance the string to the length it wants to, its always too short. BATTERY RUN TIME I was also surprised such a large, exceptionally heavy battery would last such a short time, after charging for 3 days before the first use, the battery was exhausted in under 15 minutes. SIDEWALK EDGER GIVES CRUDE RESULTS The convertible idea is great, but the metal edge guide is just too flimsy and constantly skips, drags, and catches so you can't get a nice smooth professional cut, just a rough, hacked edge that looks terrible. May 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great tool The rechargeable aspect is so handy compared to gas or cords. It works like a charm. May 17, 2016
