how long does a spool of string last. do i have to wide the line or can i buy a replacement spool already with line

Asked by: Anonymous
full spool of line lasts longer than I had expected. I think replacement spools can be purchased, but I rewind the spool because its easy and less expensive.

How long can you typically go on a fully charged battery?

Asked by: Anonymous
My experience with the trimmer is that it can go for 45 minutes or so. It takes maybe an hour to charge, so it's not a bad tradeoff.

12 in. 20-Volt Max Lithium-Ion Cordless String Trimmer is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 65.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Easy to use but battery life is poor Cordless trimmer - quality wise seems good. Easy to use. However, battery life was really poor. 20 minute into use, battery life was already down 2 bars. With in 40 minutes, battery died. if I want to use it for longer then 40 minutes, I will have to invest in another battery.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent trimmer, but... I gave this trimmer/edger to my daughter who lives 1300 miles away. She has two little ones to keep track of, so doesn't need any hassles. She tells me the trimmer works very well on her grass and weeds, but that she only gets about 30 minutes of life out of the battery. I've read reviews that say owners have gotten up to 2 hours from a charge. Fortunately, always expecting the least from a product, I also bought her a second battery so she can always have one fully charged. Unfortunately, Home Depot doesn't seem to sell either the replacement string, or the batteries, not even online, making it difficult to buy accessories. I had to look elsewhere, a difficult Internet search, to find those items.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would recommend it to a friend. Iwas leary about the battery going dead before i finished my yardwork, after reading many reviews about other trimmers. I am quite pleased with the length of run time onthis one. I dont have a huge yard but I have used it twice and still have one quarter charge left. It has enough power for me. My only concern is how long the locking device will last as it is switched from trim to edge. Lovethe adjusting levers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very pleased overall Was looking to get away from a corded trimmer due to the hassle, and refuse to use a loud, polluting gas trimmer. This model is lightweight and easy to use. The battery life is adequate for my normal use, and I have quite a bit of trimming of some pretty tough grass and weeds. Would definitely recommend this. Wish Toro had a cordless blower also.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Quality made. Easy to use. Battery horrible It is a well made product. I liked everything about it,BUT the battery. It lasted around 15 minutes, and I don't have a lot of weed eating to do, but I could only finish about half of my yard. I returned it and got a 40 volt Ryobi. If you have a small yard it would be great, otherwise don't waste your time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Battery runs down quickly, OK on power in taller grass I have a 60 x 80 lot and found that the battery ran down about 3/4 of the way thru the job. Will need a second battery to do my complete yard. It didn't have enough power with some taller grass, had to make SEVERAL passes to get down to desired level. Every time power is shut off string is fed out and cut off when power is turned back on. Seems like I'll be using more string than my corded trimmer. I like the adjustable length shaft, very light weight and easy on your back. With the adjustable shaft it makes it compact for storage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought this trimmer and handheld leaf blower as a combo set 2 years ago for my mother-in-law. I ... Bought this trimmer and handheld leaf blower as a combo set 2 years ago for my mother-in-law. I liked the trimmer so much I kept it for myself. It is lightweight, but trims very well and the line is easy to load. It's the only trimmer I have that doesn't hurt my back when I use it (have a gas trimmer and a battery one also). I purchased this trimmer this summer since I could get the trimmer and another battery and charger for almost the same price as what a battery and charger would cost. Gave the leaf blower to my mother-in-law and she uses it to clean off her driveway (she's 84).
