I have a fairly large yard with a chain link fence that which allows for thick growth of the grass along it. This trimmer is more than able to take care of the job that my previous 25cc Weedeater gas trimmer did and then some. It also wacks the weeds on the side of my yard without any problem.

I have a fairly large yard with a chain link fence that which allows for thick growth of the grass along it. This trimmer is more than able to take care of the job that my previous 25cc Weedeater gas trimmer did and then some. It also wacks the weeds on the side of my yard without any problem. I am very pleased with my purchase and highly recommend it. My wife also loves it as it is much easier and convenient for her to use than our previous trimmer. The battery life is good and it recharges very fast even though I have not needed to do that for my yard. The only draw back I found was the trimmer proctector. I found it was too long to allow for the trimmers to do their job as I needed it done. I solved that problem by unclipping it from the trimmer and it all works well for me now, hope that Toro is able to adjust this design glitch by making one that is smaller by about an inch or two, This is by far one of the better trimmers I have owned.

I'm not sure I've used a 25cc 2-stroke trimmer before; however I did own a gas trimmer previously from Sears and I definitely prefer this Lithium battery powered trimmer. This trimmer has a power dial which goes from 2-10 and I've thus far (for approx. 2 months) have only needed to use level 2 for my very large front and side yard and small back yard.

I'm not sure I've used a 25cc 2-stroke trimmer before; however I did own a gas trimmer previously from Sears and I definitely prefer this Lithium battery powered trimmer. This trimmer has a power dial which goes from 2-10 and I've thus far (for approx. 2 months) have only needed to use level 2 for my very large front and side yard and small back yard. The self feed on this trimmer is excellent, not jamming or sticking which other self-feeders have done in the past. Also the feed allows you to use the same spool for a significant time, which with other trimmers, I've used 1 spool sometimes on 1 each yard cutting which can become expensive. This is a very practical dual line trimmer which gets the job done of trimming and edging. Read Less

Answer: 
That is the trimmer I had before the Toro 13 inch. I can tell you that the Toro is more powerful and so much easier to use. You just slide the battery in when you need power. I charge it after I'm finished. I am able to get all of my trimming done (more than 1/2 hour). The battery hasn't run out on me yet so I don't know how much longer it would go but it is a large battery.

The 'start' for this trimmer says it has a push start. What is that? How is that different from other trimmers?

Answer: 
To start the trimmer you press the mechanism on top of the handle and then the one underneath. I believe this is more for safety. Hope that helps.

Answer: 
So far mine is very good. The head portion is a little heavy but trims very well. Starts great. So easy compared to a gas trimmer. Like the fact that every time you release the trigger it automatically lets out a little line so you do not have to hit it on the ground to let line out. Battery is good with one charge and I have a lot of property to trim. Charges very fast also if needed. So far so good. Read More

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 94 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Very Disappointing.....Will Be Returning Only runs for approx. 20-25 minutes per charge even if battery is charged for 24hrs. Often stops & starts, often just stops!!. Very disappointing product. I will be returning June 18, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by weed It's too heavy to maneuver. Wife couldn't pick it up at all. May 18, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Battery is terrible Battery died after 15 minutes ! Replacement is $129! Are u kidding me? June 7, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Battery Flaw The trimmer worked great for a few months before the battery died. The charger tested fine but it would not show that the battery was connected. The board inside the battery appeared to have gone bad as the transistors had different readings. Since the cost of the battery is near the same cost of the trimmer it is not worth it to replace. Could have been a great tool but its back to gas powered for me. December 29, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good, powerful unit for a good price This is a very nice unit with a lot of power and really good battery life. I like a simple, strait-shaft trimmer that I can flip upside down to do edging rather than the kind with the pivoting heads. All of that type I have tried seemed to be flimsy with lightweight construction that would last the test of time, and the shrouds on those are always way too big and you can't see what you are doing. This unit has a nice small shroud that doesn't obscure your view, and is very sturdy. The winter storage mode for the battery is a neat feature. The only knock on it is it is a bit heavy and the shaft is a bit too long for me. If it were 6" shorter, it would be perfect (I am 5'-10"). Also, the handle isn't designed to rotate around the shaft, so flipping it upside down to use as an edger takes a little practice. November 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Toro Weed Trimmer, Gas-free! I was really impressed with this trimmer! I was able to trim an over-grown mint garden and all the trim around my home landscaping. Charges quick and convenient, easy to put together! The only gripe would be for a battery pack that lasts a little longer. Maybe I'll just order a spare battery! August 6, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AWESOME TRIMMER WEEDWACKER !! Through the years, I've tried every type of trimmer but this is the first one that impressed me. The gas type was too loud - the corded type was useless for our 2 acres of flowers, trees and bushes - the "As seen on tv" cordless was okay for very small jobs but it was not for thick weeds. This Toro, however, has so many good features and it performs wonderfully! Didn't think I'd ever say that I enjoy trimming the weeds! It is a bit heavy because of the 48V battery, but well-balanced and the long shaft makes it very easy to use --even for a senior lady. I would gladly deal with a heavier tool that really works rather than a lighter one that behaves like a toy. It is not too noisy, and the variable speed allows you to use full power only when needed for heavy duty trimming (this really does extend the running time). We have some tough weeds here in the mountain area, but this Toro trimmer has no problem taking care of them. The string automatically advances 1/4" each time the unit is turned on (or you can manually advance it). It's not a big deal, but I hope Home Depot will have the pre-wound spools available soon so I don't have to keep winding them myself with the .065" string. I really love the status lights on the battery so that I know when I am nearing the end of running power (although the charging time is super fast, took less than an hour). The wholesome charger is well made, with status lights on it and a chart explaining the LED status. Storing the battery for periods longer than a month is no hassle because the charger has a "Storage Mode" which keeps the battery in good condition by keeping it at a 40% charge. (No more guessing whether I should charge the battery during the winter months!) I did learn that the battery must be snapped into the trimmer completely until the lock clicks!! At the first try, the unit would run for a few seconds then stop -- because the battery was not locked in! July 17, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Powerful 48 volt Toro Trimmer, One Battery, One Charger- I want more please! Out of the Box: One large Battery pack with an indicator light, one battery charger, one Trimmer/Edger in 3 parts and one full two line spool of .065 line. Having always used an electric trimmer, the first thing I liked about this was it's wire and gas free. It has as much power as my best electric two line. I've the same problems losing the line towards the end of the spool as I did with my two line electric wired. The Battery is a pack. It's much larger than I expected. My Video shows the battery going on and coming off the charger, which is set in the storage mode vs. charge mode. I used an entire reel of trim line. First, I edged the front of a short yard and trimmed some heaving weeds in a 10 ft space. Then, I trimmed heavy weeds blocking a six foot panel of fence, Before and After pictures. Lastly, I trimmed about a 20 foot line of fence with light weeds. The line is almost gone. My neighborhood has waist high thick weeds where the county maps show there should be a cleared drainage ditch. The before and after photos show 6 feet weeds that I was able to cut before I felt some loss of power in the battery. I intend on clearing this entire ditch one panel at a time. I would love to check the performance of this against a gas trimmer one on one taking down these weeds, but I have no takers. For the price point, I would like to have this come with a second battery. It appeared to drain too fast on the first tests. This is a tool I needed. I'm following up with Toro to see if I'm utilizing the battery to the fullest. The edger fell off a garbage can and the handle, which is a cheaper plastic, fell off. It didn't break. The screw joining both parts was still tight, I assembled the 2 pieces again with no problem. We've done our own trimming for over a decade at our home. This is one of the nicest trimmers I've used for convenience and portability, particularly during tropical storm season where dragging around an electrical cord is not safe. July 9, 2013
