Questions & Answers

How do you charge the battery?

Asked by: Kristen
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).

how many amp hours are available

how many amp hours are available
Asked by: homer
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.

Does it come with a standard or fast charger?

Asked by: JoeT
Mine came with a fast charger.

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

Asked by: KD59
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

60-Volt MAX Lithium-Ion Cordless FLEXVOLT Brushless 15 in. String Grass Trimmer with 3.0Ah Battery and Charger Included is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 168.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Battery Trimmer Around Good features- motor and battery power and run time. Variable speed control. How much power I discovered when trimming tall grass near a shrub. Unknown to me there was a spherical metal float, the kind used by commercial trawlers in the grass or hanging from the shrub. Several feet of light nylon line was tied to the float. The trimmer at full power reeled in the line, slinging the float several feet to one side. Fortunately it went wide of me. Safety glasses might not have been enough. Not Good- the small guard is just inadequate, and particularly so at higher speeds. This trimmer can and does throw things and the guard does not cover a sufficient arc to prevent some of it from hitting the operator, bits vegetation are annoying, but pebbles are a pain and could be a problem if an operator or onlooker is not wearing suitable eye protection. But the trimmer is so good otherwise I decided to mod the guard. I had a B&D plug in trimmer that was EOL so removed the guard, trimmed it and attached it to the top of the factory guard with 1/4x20 bolts (and some thread locker). Problem fixed. DeWalt you should change the guard or offer an optional kit.I will gladly license or sell the idea and design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Trimmer I have owned Amazing power from this unit. Cuts heavy weeds as well as my big commercial grade gas powered trimmer but is much lighter and never any trouble starting. On high setting it has too much power for .08 line, I had to switch to .095 due to constant breaking of line. Note that this high power comes at the price of short battery life, for my large property I need 3 batteries to complete. These are the same large batteries that came with the unit, says 9Ah on it (20V vs 60V is the reason for the difference in rating). On high speed this large battery lasts about 20 minutes. I'm considering getting a fast charger as each battery takes almost 3 hours to charge and the fast charger should cut that in half.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Powerful, but Terrible Practical Design It would be one of the best trimmers, gas or battery, one could ever hope for... However: the debris guard is tiny, and literally has an extra-narrow portion in its design form which seems to ensure that extra debris can make its way past the guard back to the user. You will literally be covered head to toe with clippings...in your hair, eyebrows, ears, and everything. Also, the direction of rotation/spin is opposite of any other trimmer I've used. It spins counter clock wise instead of clockwise. If you are right handed (as most people are), then you hold the trimmer on your right side, and it is natural to have the string sweeping AWAY from you (clockwise) so that clippings get thrown away from you. Instead, the string sweeps "inside" towards your body and thus ensures that the amount of debris thrown back towards the user is entirely optimized. In fact, it seems like the theory behind the design of this unit is to maximize the amount of debris thrown back onto the user. At this, deWalt has entirely excelled. I guess I will start to hold the unit on the left side of my body and switch hands, so that at least I can use the trimmer on the side where it throws debris away from the user/inside corner of the hold. It would be nice to be able to switch the polarity of the direction of spin of the string. And/or, a better debris guard.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not surprised, this was awesome I have had this for a month now and couldn't be happier. I trim around my house and garage Then I do my parents property that has a lot of trimming. I love this thing, it starts every time. I am also a contractor that has a Dewalt cordless tools. When I checked the price of the trimmer and seen the battery that was included, I realized I was buying a battery and a charger with a free tool. I figured that if the trimmer doesn't hold up at least i got a good battery for my saw. The trimmer seems like it should last, I just wish the guard was a little wider and it came with a strap

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I bought the 60v trimmer to replace my corded black and decker trimmer. I wanted something cordless and I didnt want to buy another gas trimmer. This trimmer did not disappoint. The 60v battery is awesome a little heavy but I believe the design allows it to balance very well when in use. The battery life is amazing I can get about to use before I have to recharge. I am not a professional by all means but this works great around my house. The best part is I can use the battery in the rest of my 20v max dewalt tools! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Line Problems Only had a chance to use trimmer once. Good weight - plenty of power. Line Broke Constantly. The trimmer head and Wire feed opening are out front so it's easy to bumb into objects which seem to shear the line off - then the line sucks into the spool housing. The idea behind the spool design seems ok - but in my unit the spool binds inside the housing and is VERY difficult to remove. This makes replacing or untangling the line VERY VERY difficult - and frustrating. Loading the line - insert the line into the retaining hole - which is the opposite direction of winding, so you flip the line over and wind one section. Then while keeping this line from unwinding - you do the same thing on the second level. This is not an easy process. Other models allow the line to pass through the head leaving even distance on both sides, then you just wind the line in - both sides at the same time. I spend more time untangling or rewinding the spool than cutting. Trying to contact Dewalt for replacement spool that chipped on the inside. Will see how it goes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not for landscaping no interchangeable attachments I have several 60v tools so I thought I’d give this one a try. When I opened the box I was very disappointed and should have returned it right then. It’s obvious it was only designed to fit in that shipping box and not designed for yard work. Let’s start with the folded shaft. I thought I would have future tools adaptable to the trimmer like every other trimmer that comes with a two piece shaft . Wrong. It’s equipped with a weak spot that’s all, the shaft is not really two pieces, there is a solid wire running thru the shaft that can not be disconnected to separate the two parts making it more difficult to transport when separated. Next the shield might just as well not even be there. I’m used to trimming in shorts and a t-shirt. With the dewalt no matter how you use it your getting covered in debris, my legs were bleeding the first time I used it and thankfully I wear glasses! I’m sure that tiny shield was designed just to fit in the shipping box as well. The trimmer head sucks! Replacing string should not be so complicated! Why dewalt did not use the industry standard (M10x1.25 LH) trimmer head is truly baffling. I was not impressed with run time like other reviewers claim. A tank of gas lasts easily more than twice as long as a fully charged 60v battery. This tool would not be a good fit for a professional landscaper. I will say the trimmer had plenty of power when the battery was fully charged. Don’t waste your money on this tool. I’m used to running quality trimmers like stihl and husqvarna, I purchased the dewalt to try and get away from the vibration of the gas motor, but the dewalt has plenty of vibration of its own and the lack of a proper shield and the difficulty of reloading the string make this tool miserable to use. The battery is also not easy to remove from the trimmer. It’s obvious the engineers who designed this tool do not cut their own lawn! Last but not least Dewalt says you can not use this trimmer to define the edge of anything, the manual states; "Keep the rotating string roughly parallel with the ground (tilted no more than 30 degrees)." WHO uses their string trimmer and does not define the edges they worked so hard to put in the landscape or to quickly touch up the edge of a sidewalk or driveway?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gas like power! I bought this trimmer to get into the flexfault line and I must say this trimmer has so much power. It comes with a standard .080 line, it does a good job with that line but I swapped it out for a .090 and noticed a huge difference in performance and durability. It eats through the weeds like a hot knife through butter. Well-balanced, just 15 pounds, battery life is great and that’s why I got into this platform because I can use the Flexvolt battery with my current DeWalt tools including my Flexvolt blower and 2x20 lawnmower which both items are great. Don’t care what people think about the lawn more, it makes my job so much easier compared to the gas mower I had a year ago. Thank you Dewalt.
