Enjoy all the benefits of Toro’s 24-Volt Max string trimmer and edger, like the Auto-Feed Trim Line system, the 1-step walk behind edging and the exclusive power-saver feature, without spending the extra cash on a spare battery and charger. This bare tool provides all of the power and ease of use of its fully equipped counterpart, but costs much less. Use your Toro 24-Volt max battery and charger on the entire line of bare tools to save money, maximize your limited storage space and easily convert from tool to tool to tackle any job.

  • 24-Volt max lithium-ion battery provides up to twice the power per weight versus traditional nickel-cadmium batteries (battery not included)
  • 12 in. single line cutting head gets the job done
  • Auto-feed line system keeps the trimmer at the right length
  • Exclusive power saver feature adjusts cutting width to 10 in. for longer run time
  • 1-step walk behind edging - easily switch from trimmer to edger in seconds
  • Assist handle helps balance the trimmer to reduce fatigue
  • Extended shaft for maximum reach
  • Covered by a 2 year full warranty
  • Purchasing the bare tool costs much less if you already have a Toro product that uses the 24-Volt Max battery and charger
  • Battery not included

Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very easy to assemble and use as a single female first time home owner - I need to do all of my yardwork on my own. I bought the Trimmer and the Rake and Vac Super Blower Vacuum. Assembly was a snap - I like the wheel guide feature to do the edging - it made my sidewalk look so neat!!! Light - easy to operate October 12, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Started out strong, but... For a cordless trimmer it has a lot of power and very good battery life on the stock battery. However on second use, I started having a problem where when I held the trigger down the trimmer either did not turn on or it would turn on with very low power. Sometime it would rev up to full speed, other times it would start at full speed. Also the auto extend feature for the trimming string is unreliable. I often have to manually extend the string. If this behavior persists, I will likely pursue getting a refund and get a gas powered trimmer instead. September 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tough machine I have St Augustine grass and my drive and walks had not been edged since 2010. The 24V Max 12 Cordless walked right through and the battery wasn't showing any signs of weakening, September 21, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 Line will not advance The only reason I rated this trimmer as a recommend is that I believe it has plenty of power for the job however the line will NOT advance no matter what I do. I have had this trimmer for a few months and may return it for another brand. If anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate it as I do believe this trimmer is better quality than some other brands. When I trim the grass I start out with a full length of string and then within a minute or so I am down to maybe a two to three inch length of sting that will not advance making the job painfully slow.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Battery STINKS! I am using this in May and the 6 month old battery is less than useless! DON"T buy unless you only need a run time of 15 minutes. I have a 24 volt lawn mower and it does my tiny yard with no problem, this however I am now on my third charge today and the edging wasn't that bad. It went from 30-45 minute run time to 15 minutes in less than 6 uses! I am old and disabled and this trimmer makes me look like a spring chicken! May 17, 2014
