Will this work with my craftsman edger attachment?

Asked by Luis June 13, 2021

when will the accessories become available?

Asked by Ryan June 11, 2021

Ryan, I already had the edger, blower, cultivator to go with my string attachment. They all fit my DeWalt cordless power head. I think it will fit most generic attachments. It has plenty of power to run all attachments, I was pleasantly surprised. Barry

Complete Garabage
I cannot figure out how to attach the power unit end to the string attachment end. They are the same diameter shafts and the sleeve does not seem to want to move. Also if this sleeve could move i do not than know how the inside shafts gets connected as the power end shaft is a few inches recessed and the attachment spleen not extending beyond the shaft. Dewalt you failed me. I called the 800 number although nice people they could not help with this matter.

USER MANUAL REVIEW. Not a review on the tool.
I just purchased 60V battery powered string trimmer and chainsaw. The user manual for the trimmer is pathetic: microscopic type, pale-grey in color, needs magnifying glass to read. DO YOU HAVE an alternative, such as a PDF file I can download and print, with LARGER TYPE ? (I don't want to print it on paper bigger than standard, in order to have a readable size. My vision is OK, but I can't read this manual without a big magnifying setup. SERIOUSLY a company like DeWalt should put out a user manual that is *as robust and helpful* as its tools. PLEASE REPLY. I'm sitting on my porch with a magnifyer squinting and struggling to see the grey indistinct type in the trimmer user manual. Totally frustrated. Honestly you guys should be ashamed. I bet this manual was printed overseas with diluted ink, and Dewalt saves .5 penny per copy by supplying this and calling it a manual.

*WARNUNG* Before Assembling Remove 1" diameter by 2.25" spacer gray plastic pipe from the ATTACHMENT CAPABLE POWER HEAD
Only took one trip back the Home Depot to discover the spacer tube in the trigger end of the assembly. Just grab ahold and wiggle a little bit to remove, then the String Trimmer attachment slides in an locks effortlessly. HAVE FUN, great trimmer.

I purchased it from a local homedepot and instructions are poor handle needs 4 small bolts to be loosened then taken apart and placed behind black middle piece then re tighten. Charge the battery while you assemble it by the way and then the plastic piece goes under the bar with dewalt facing you and tighten the head down all the way counter clockwise. Theres a small hole in the top of the bar stick the tool that came with it in there to stop the head from turning so you can tighten it up even more. It kept falling off because i didnt tighten it up enough. Really strong i would highly recomend it. It has plenty of power !!! I have gas ones too just was curious about this one definently worth it !

Great tool!
This is my 4th week of owning/using this tool. I have a 1/2 acre property I alone maintain. I use 9 Amp hour battery's for all my 60v tools, seems to be my happy medium. This attachments weed trimmer is a fantastic tool & only needs my 1 battery to do my entire property. All standard attachments fit & work well with it also. If I had to find something to complain about it would be that compared to my 4 stroke weed trimmer it is slightly noticeable the gap in RPMS. My 4stroke can cut faster through thick brush an dirt. The dewalt can also, just not as quick. Great tool overall.

After struggling with my 23 year old heavy duty weed eater and almost throwing it over the bank I decided to go electric. I bought a 60volt DeWalt cordless weed eater from Home Depot last week. It definitely far exceeded my expectations. Light, quiet, plenty of power, accepts all the attachments I have for my other gas weed eaters and starts instantly. I just used it to trim what I typically do with the gas one and the DeWalt is still showing a full charge of 3 bars on the battery.

Absolute powerhouse! I have used gas powered string trimmers all my life and recently got two different string trimmers, one 18V and this DeWALT 60V. And lets just say the Flex-Volt battery truly makes this a competitor of gas trimmers! I love how wide the swath is and feel like I can get around the yard very quickly with it. Also the ability to make it a 17" swath is a great feature if you need to clear a lot of grass. I really like the design of the trimmer and although its much heaver than my 18V trimmer it makes up for it with how balanced it is and the fact that I can do my whole yard three weeks in a row and still have a full battery. Thats actually my favorite part of this tool, the 9AH battery, it lasts forever and I don't have to charge it every day or week. Other great features of the trimmer are how easy it is to reload it with new trimming line, the safety on the trigger that is so easy to engage yet very safe and the awesome support handle. The only flaw I could find with this trimer is that it doesn't come with a shoulder strap, but I am sure I can just find one and attach it myself, so thats not even close to a deal breaker to me. All in all I highly recommend this trimmer if you need a replacement for a gas trimmer or one that can power through large yards for weeks.

The Dewalt Flexvolt 60-volt MAX Lithium-Ion Electric Cordless string trimmer is full of features. The kit comes with a 60-volt 9AH Lithium-Ion Battery and a battery charger that will charge either the 20-volt or 60-volt Dewalt batteries.

There is a high/low switch to quickly select the speed of the trimmer head to select either 4650 RPM or 5800 RPM.

The cutting swath is 17 inches and the trimmer comes with one spool of 20 feet long 0.080” diameter trimmer line. It will also work using 0.095” diameter trimmer line.

This tool also features the capability of attaching other universal attachments from Dewalt and other brands offering the universal capability. Dewalt offers edgers, hedge trimmer, chain saw, blower and other popular attachments. They are all easily changed. The fully assembled string trimmer is 70 1/2 inches long and weighs 14 1/2 lbs.
