Questions & Answers

how many amp hours are available

Asked by homer June 20, 2017
7
Answers

The battery that shipped with mine is rated at 3 or 6 amp hours. Three using it on the trimmer or another 60-Volt tool, six when using it on one of DeWalt's 20-Volt "FlexVolt" tools. When on the smaller 20-Volt tools, the battery acts like two (or three?) batteries (linked in series) for longer runtime. This is a beefy, powerful battery and so far loses only one of three "bars" in about an hour of string trimming.

How do you charge the battery?

Asked by Kristen June 22, 2017
7
Answers

The trimmer comes with a charger that will completely charge within a few hours. A red light on the front blinks when charging, then goes solid when the battery is fully charged. DeWalt says it's safe to leave the battery on the charger when not in use (should not overcharge).

does the 40 volt battery also interchange with this model

Asked by kas May 13, 2018
5
Answers

No. You need the 60-Volt FlexVolt battery. You can, however, use the 60-Volt FlexVolt with 20-Volt FlexVolt DeWalt tools. On the smaller tool, you get the same power but double the runtime. I have the 20-Volt hedge trimmer and compact reciprocating saw and it works on those.

the ad for this says it comes with a 3.0ah battery, but all the reviews says its a 9 amp battery

It comes with the 9amp power house.

what size battery does this come with?

Asked by Ranks May 1, 2017

3.0 Ah - see the title of the item.

Does it come with a standard or fast charger?

Asked by JoeT November 16, 2018

Mine came with a fast charger.

Does this trimmer have the capability to twist to edge? Also how long is the run time for the battery?

Asked by John March 8, 2018
5
Answers

It has great power even in low mode , just the problem with the bump feed , string would not advance properly.

Does either of these two units have a solid shaft that runs down to the rotating head or they cable driven

Asked by KD59 May 21, 2018
5
Answers

if you look at the picture just below the loop handle is where the unit can be folded in half. When i unboxed mine I had to insert the top into the bottom and tighten a screw together to hold the sections together. I believe there is just wires running down to the trimmer head from the battery area inside the shaft

attachment capable?

Asked by dewaltguy May 4, 2017
5
Answers

Don't think so. There's wiring that runs all the way through the shaft (which you can see when attaching the two parts) and DeWalt has made no mention of attachments thus far.

The trimmer has plenty of power but even on low I can't finish my 1 acre lot with the 9ah battery. The guard does almost nothing to stop debris and the motor is always covered in grass trimmings. I vacuumed mine out. I've used it under 10 times and today 2 minutes into trimming I had to keep bumping it because string wouldn't feed out. Only slightly harder than usual and the shaft bent. Still works but I'm returning immediately. I was very hopeful switching from a gas weed trimmer. Now I have to figure out something else.

Broke Spool and Line
Customer review from dewalt.com logo
I have not even trimmed my front yard of a small home plot and I have had to re-spool and thread at least 20 times and the spool broke. I initially used the stock line pre-installed but it was sheering off the spool head itself. Did not take long before I have to buy new line. Then I bought the round thicker line as per the manual and it still sheers off at the spool. Then to top it off the spool reel busted. The tool has power, and I love that fact, but when even at the low speed I can't keep the line from breaking.

Runs .095 line through thick weeds without bogging down. Bump feed works ok but line binds in spool a lot. DeWalt's just released a quick feed replacement spool head that is pictured on the bare tool so check that out before you buy the kit. This trimmer is not attachment capable. The internal wiring on mine is starting to fray from hauling it around in half, which DeWalt recommends you do not do. The removable guard is small for edging. DeWalt says not to use it for edging, which I do. With a 9 amp battery I'm getting 20-25 minutes of run time at full speed through thick weeds. Overall this tool is well balanced and powerful with very little vibration. Check out my video to see it in action. https://youtu.be/NnAdwdrF1nM

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
This cordless string trimmer has the power like a gas trimmer. The motor is brushless and has two speeds. Low speed 0-5600 RPM and High Speed is 0-6600 RPM. The motor is a lot quieter than the traditional gas power trimmer. One thing I notice it weight is 15 lbs but the balance of the trimmer you it is easy on the arm and shoulders. It trimmer accepts two different lines 0.080 in line and 0.095 in line. The charger can charge 60V and 20V Battery. It comes with Trimmer, one (1) 60V Max Lithium Battery, Charger. The battery will need to be charge before you use it, I only had one bar on the Fuel Gauge. The Trimmer comes with a 3 year warranty. A great product from DeWalt.

(What's this)
This is the best string trimmer I've ever used! My old 18 volt Ni-Cad string trimmer would choke, if the grass was too thick & the battery power wouldn't last long. My gasoline string trimmer was heavy, noisy & messy, with mixing oil, gas & gas preservative. Now, with this Dewalt 60 Volt 9 Amp hour string trimmer, I just plug the 60 Volt battery into it's charger & when it's charged, I simply plug it onto the string trimmer receiver & I'm ready to go. The whole unit is perfectly balanced. One hand held onto the auxiliary handle, the other hand held onto the handle behind the variable speed trigger. This configuration gave me maximum control & maneuverability around my property. It was very quiet. It didn't disturb my dogs, or neighbors. The auxiliary handle & the handle behind the power trigger has a rubberized, ribbed coating, that kept the tool solidly in my grip. The 15" diameter cutting circle, cuts a lot of grass at one time. With the motor running, a slight tap on the ground extended the string out of the spool housing. Preventing accidental starts, the safety lock-off lever has to be depressed along with the variable speed trigger. Both levers are next to each other & very comfortable to use. Of the two power speeds that are available, "Low" & "High", I used the "low" speed for most of my cutting. It provided GREAT POWER & conserves battery power. I briefly used the "High" speed setting & although impressive, I felt I would rarely use it, since the low speed setting is more than sufficient for 99% of whatever I need to trim. I used the trimmer for about 30 minutes, trimming grass & weeds around my property. I pushed the button on the battery's fuel gauge to see how much power I had left & I still had 2 out of 3 lights lit. I could have continued to use the trimmer a lot longer, before recharging. This is a top grade, POWERFUL, professional tool.

(What's this)
OK to start ordered online did not expect it to be as long as it is around six foot long, is a little on the heavy side compared to my sisters Worxs cordless trimmer, but then has way more lasting power at 9.0 amp hour battery 20/60 volt, used today for 3 hours and only dropped 1light of the 3 light battery status lights. Being a little heavy but is very well balanced so makes it feel lighter than it is and much easier to trim with. Think my first Dewalt product and I will get along just great

I'm very happy with the performance of this trimmer. I have 2 6Ah batteries and they last through my whole yard. If you're tired of mixing gas, puling on start cords and electric trimmers that under preform, I highly recommend the 60v Lithium-Ion from Dewalt. Be sure to get at leas 6Ah batteries.
