No. I don’t believe they offer a larger head cover through Dewalt. That’s more than likely a modified head cover.

I believe to have found your issue sir. It's not the actual weed eater, but the battery pack itself. So if you look at the pictures I posted you will see where the plastic clip comes up from the battery pack and lowers when you press it. I had the same issue myself. The clip on the one battery when pressed goes down low enough to be flush with the battery pack itself. The second one when pressed still has the clip slightly rasied above the battery pack which in turn gets caught when it should be releasing from the current dewalt tool you maybe using.

No, you need to change the line head to accept that size of string.

This unit is for heavy duty applications. Perhaps it is the position you are holding it in is causing your arm to go to sleep. You should try and get a shoulder strap to help support the weight of the unit.

I was skeptical to buy based on the bad reviews. This is a quality piece of equipment. It’s about the same weight as a gas trimmer but is very well balanced and has just as much probably more power. Old 20v trimmer went through 3 batteries to do our estate size yard and this one finishes with 1 charge and power to spare. A solid 50 minute task. I would recommend buying the larger guard part number N512929 makes a big difference in discharge amount and user cleanliness. My only complaint is there isn’t an edger attachment.

This trimmer was great while it was working and not so much once it quite working. Ive owned the trimmer about a year before it stopped working. Used only about 1-2 times a month during the mowi g season. I was weedeating when it just quite. Thought it was battery, but it still showed a charge. Swapped batteries and still nothing. Opened the weedeater up and the inside is completely black from where the wires melted and apparently exploded. I will not be buying another electric weedeater for a while and i was excited about it cause im all for stop using 4-cycle mixtures.

Title above says 3 Ah but it actually came with a 9 Ah battery. This trimmer is a BEAST. I got for Christmas a two pack of 6 Ah batteries that also work with this. My first job was a 4 foot by 80 foot clearing beneath a retaining wall. Some grass, mostly thick trunked weeds including some thistle and milk weed. It literally devoured it all. All done using the thinner .85 line. Battery only went down one light. I also own an Echo gas trimmer. I much prefer this Dewalt. Two observations: be prepared to shower after. It spews wet bits everywhere and you will be covered. Another thing is the motor vents get covered near instantly. Seems no good way to clean out. Lastly, I got to a patch of tall thin grass. Some so long it caused to wrap around the shaft. Not too hard to remove, yet not easy either.

Love the concept. Still needs work.

Purchased this 3 days ago. I'm not able to pull the string of a gas trimmer hard enough to start it, so we thought this would be perfect for me. After 4 battery cycles over 2 days, we're going to return it. First the good: -- I love the concept. It was so easy to use. Click the battery in and squeeze the trigger. -- Cuts great. -- Good power that stays strong right up until the battery dies. -- The battery took about 2 1/2 hours to charge from completely drained to fully-charged. -- It took about 20-25 minutes to drain cutting weeds on high power. -- Nicely weight-balanced so I'm not leaning to compensate to hold it up. Then the bad: I used it a total of 90 minutes over 2 days, which equaled 4 cycles of the battery being fully-charged. I'm including several photos. -- The battery is hard to get out of the charger and off of the trimmer. This was made for somebody with very strong hands. -- The manual says to make sure the air vents are kept clear. This is IMPOSSIBLE in this design. They were covered with bits of grass within 5 minutes. Had to stop trimming and brush it out repeatedly. -- Even after brushing out the grass bits from the air vents, there is still smaller grass bits stuck inside that can't be reached to be removed. See photos. -- I had to add string twice in the 90 minutes total trim time I used this. Both times it was nearly impossible for me to turn the ring while holding the head. I had to have my husband do it, and he had difficulty the second time. -- I figured out the reason for the difficulty when I couldn't get the string to advance either. Tiny bits of grass had caked up in the space between the ring and the trimmer head. I scraped out about 1/4" thick ring of caked grass before my last time using the trimmer. -- As the trimmer head is spinning, grass gets twisted around it. A lot of grass gets stuck up under the trimmer head so that you can't get it out. There is no way to take the trimmer head off, that I can see, so it isn't going anywhere. It interferes with the spinning of the trimmer head while it's running and it interferes with the release of the string when you bump it. The last cycle I used the trimmer, I stopped at least 5 times to pull out the grass I could reach from around the trimmer head. I loved the ease of starting and handling this trimmer. For the price of the trimmer and the extra battery you need if you want to trim for more than 25 minutes at a time, I'd have expected a better design of the vents, the way to load the string, and the trimmer head itself. I wouldn't recommend it to anybody who has anything more than 5" high grass around a small yard to trim. Higher or thicker than that or a larger yard, you're going to need 2 batteries and you might be stopping a lot to clean out the vents and remove the grass from under the head.

uncomfortable and short-lasting. the battery is very difficult to remove. the angle at which it is made is very uncomfortable. Also, I have less than a year with it and I don't use it all the time, let's say I have used it for 25 to 30 times. and it already broke in the part where line a is placed.

This is incredibly power and has great runtime. Unfortunately, the quality and attention to detail are not up to DeWalt's typically high standards. I have three main issues: 1. The guard is very small. You can replace this, but you shouldn't have to at this price point. Make sure you wear long pants that you don't mind getting dirty. 2. The motor is on the head of the trimmer. This makes the balance pretty nice actually, but causes the air intake to easily clog with grass. Depending on how wet your grass is, this can be very difficult/annoying to clean out. Because the motor is at the end, the wiring has to run through the shaft. If anything happens to your shaft, you need to disassemble the motor in order to repair the shaft. Which brings me to the last issue... 3. The shaft is really weak. After using it once and bumping the spool twice to feed line, the shaft already had a noticeable bend to it. Once a bend starts, it only gets worse. Home Depot kindly exchanged it, but this is clearly a weak shaft design for a trimmer with bump feed string. Still, there are not a lot of great alternatives in the electric string trimmer space so these limitations aren't enough to make another option more compelling. But it is unfortunate for a company so focused on quality and longevity.
