Questions & Answers

What direction does the spool rotate?

Asked by totheweb June 15, 2021
1
Answer

Counter clockwise rotation is very common with gas-powered trimmers, but clockwise rotation is becoming more common with battery-powered trimmers. With clockwise rotation, a right-handed user can trim more easily and comfortably when walking from left to right, without debris flying back toward them. Thank you.

Is the string included

Asked by Cinda June 10, 2021

How long it last !?

Asked by Jorge May 28, 2021

Answers

Since purchasing this earlier this Spring I’ve used it about a half dozen times and have never run out of battery. My yard is approx 12,000 sqft and I mainly use it for edging my lawn and trimming around flowerbeds. I’ve ran it for 45 min (not con’t, but starting and stopping as I moved around the yard) and it still had plenty of juice.

Is the 51830 worth getting at higher price than the 51831?

Asked by tibab May 27, 2021

Answers

@Toro, your reply didn't answer my question. Also, is the 51831 head made out of metal or plastic?

Not quite perfect, but close.
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This trimmer was the third piece in my Flex-Force system after my lawnmower and leaf blower, and I now have three batteries (two small, one large) and chargers. Plenty of juice. The trimmer is almost perfect, but you have to pay close attention during assembly to where you place the forward handle (your height determines where to put it) and that is not included in the instructions. Also, the hex bolts on that handle are MADDENING so take care to get it right the first time. Also, the trimmer only cuts when you're moving from left-to-right. When you turn it upside down to edge, it's right-to-left. It took me awhile to get the hang of it and get it working to my satisfaction, but I'm now thrilled with it. Look how good the edging looks from battery power

My wife loves it - how can I give it less than 5 stars! Seriously this Toro string trimmer is so easy to use compared to my gas powered trimmers. I already have several Toro Flex-Force battery powered yard care products so getting a trimmer that used the same battery system was important to me. The trimmer was easy to assemble right out of the box. The battery charger is one of the smaller slim-line designs which I really like. The battery when mounted gives the trimmer a nice comfortable balance. I was able to adjust the trimmer so that it is comfortable for my wife to use - she is 5ft. In use, the trimmer did what it needed to do - the brushless motor seems more than adequate to get the job done. And it is so much quieter than my gas trimmer. This Toro sting trimmer is so convenient, it takes a lot of the hassle out of trimming so more trimming gets done - what's not to like.

This needs 10 stars! I'll never go back to gas or electric. I got tired of waiting for my husband to fix one of the five trimmers languishing in the shed. This trimmer is even easy for me to handle. All the weight is at the top in the battery and I did my entire yard in one charge (two hours) and it still had juice left. The control is in the two paddles above the handle. Squeeze and you're ready. It was easy to assemble - just the handle basically. Charge the battery and clip it in. Releases with a button. Couldn't be easier.

Toro products are now a ONE 60 volt powered platform (Flex-Force Power System) that operates all your Toro yard tools. The Toro 60 Volt Max Lithium-ion brushless and cordless string trimmer is easy to put together and ready for use. It advances the string line using a bump feed (or it can be advanced manually.) I also have the Toro self-propelled brushless mower with the same 60 volt Lithium ion battery. The two tools make a dynamic duo guaranteed to perform seamlessly.

The 60v Toro is a well balanced and powerful weed eater, the battery lasted approx. 20 - 30 minutes of heavy use. The string that came with the unit seemed to wear down quite quickly but can easily be swapped out with a higher quality string. The cutting swath is adjustable between 13 & 15 inches by simply unscrewing and turning the string cutter around. The guard on the machine is a bit on the small side compared to other machined and does a poor job on protecting the user especially when edging. All in all I do like this machine and if you are thinking about going cordless you cant go wrong with this unit

Toro has a long standing tradition for manufacturing high quality lawn equipment and this one continues the tradition. Strong 60 volt motor will cut the toughest vegetation. lithium Ion battery is rechargeable in about 45 minutes and has a charge indicator on the charger and a 4 light indicator on the battery indicating quantity of charge. Easy to assemble. Handle can be adjusted to balance load and accommodate left/right handed users. Only need a #2 Philips screwdriver and about 15 minutes of time. easily breaks down at center for easy storage.

I was really excited to try out my new Toro cordless string trimmer. So excited in fact that I forgot to charge the battery, but it still allowed me to do 2/3 of my property, so I'm assuming there will be no problem with a fully charged battery cutting a medium sized property. It was easy to put together except for the front guard where it attaches to the handle near the trimmer. Apparently they gave me the wrong size screws or something. They were like one size too big, so I dinged them a star for that. Although they fit in the holes initially, I could only get them tightened about halfway by hand. There was no way they were going in there. So I decided to try my cordless drill/driver. I kept trying to shoot it in and then back it out until eventually I think it finally went in all the way. I think the threads on the screw eventually cut itself a path through the plastic. As far as its performance other than the aforementioned at least adequate battery life, it did a nice job trimming my grass along the house and walk. I had to bump it a few times to feed a longer line. The stone around my house tends to wear out string pretty fast. My old gas powered trimmer was such a pain because you had to manually feed a new 18" string in every time it wore down, which was about 3 times per session, and it used to get jammed in there too so I'd have to take the head apart and get the old string out. Frustrating to say the least. So this is a huge improvement. It's also MUCH quieter than my old gas trimmer. It's more of a hum when it's running and the real noise is the grass being cut. So I'm sure it will be a hit with my next door neighbors. Although the battery is kind of large compared to some other brands, it seems to be well balanced with the string trimmer so you don't get too tired using it. The handle is really nice because it allows you to hold it sideways and use the trimmer to edge your walks. The battery is easy to insert into the unit and a push of a button releases it. It takes 10' of .080 string per reel. The reel pops off when you squeeze the 2 tabs to release it. I haven't tried restringing it yet, but it shouldn't be very hard at all. So all in all I think this will be a great upgrade to my old gas powered trimmer.

I chose this toro weedwacker/trimmer because I already have the toro 60v blower and have been very happy with its performance. Assembly was very easy and straightforward and took less then 5 minutes. The string cutting blade is adjustable for 2 different string lengths. I left it where it came from the factory. I plugged the charger into the wall and connected the 2ah battery to it. I allowed it to charge overnight. This unit did not come with a fast charger, neither did my blower, but I don’t anticipate needing more then a single full charge and the slower a battery charges, the longer that battery’s life will be. Fast charging creates a lot of heat that kills battery’s. I took the fully charged battery off the charger and set off to trim my 1/4 acre lot. The trimmer is very well balanced to hold. The battery is up top and the motor at the bottom. This creates a very balanced unit. I have a lot of fence, both stockade and chain link so I have a lot of trimming to do. This unit was very impressive. It reached full speed in about 1.5 seconds and chopped through some pretty thick weeds and grass. The bump head worked flawlessly and never required multiple bumps to get the string to advance. After about 20-25 minutes of trimming my yard was complete and I still had 2 bars left on the battery pack indicating a half charge. This trimmer meets all my needs and I’m very happy with it. I’m considering the toro 60v mower when my gas unit is due for replacement.

Great little timmer is amazing. Don't let the thin .080 line fool you.it cuts grass like a hot butter knife on butter.it may look harmless but it kicks butt and Don't think of it as a toy.wear your eye protection.i love that the battery has a handle.it also has variable speed and a straight shaft.it is also lightweight. The only small drawbacks are the .080 line won't last long on concrete buts that's OK cause this is a lightweight trimmer.the other small drawback I would like to see being change would be the size of the shield to something a tad bigger to avoid grass ,rocks ,and Twiggs flying back at me cause this trimmer although a lightweight, is fast and has lots of power.

Where is the instructions? The box seem to be unopened and intact when I opened it, however there were no instructions and an Allen wrench packed in a plastic envelope for me to use. To attach the handle and the shroud I used a Phillips screwdriver —and by the way make sure you tighten those down as tight as you can because they will move. So the shroud and the handle was easy enough to assemble with the shaft snapping on with no problem. However, I don’t know what the Allen wrench is for and I’m sure there should be some instructions on changing the spool on this machine. Since the manual wasn’t available in the Home Depot site, I contacted Toro by phone and arrange to have the manual delivered to my house which will take four weeks. 800-237-2654 option 5. As far as performance and balance it’s very very nice. It balance as well and it really has the power to take down 4 to 5 inch grass with no problem. I took the 13 inch trimmer out so that I had a 15 inch complete sweep and it did a fantastic job.
