I promise you it wprks fine has power last a decent amount of time. But safety glasses or safety shield or long sleeves you will be hurting either way because the shield or rockhard on this thing is so small that everything is going to hit you everything hits you and it goes in a counter clockwise spinning motion so everything is coming back at your forearms at your face your neck and your head.

Just came in yesterday and finally got to try it out today. Its exactly as good as all of the reviews say and performs exactly as Dewalt claims. Really lightweight and one less engine to maintain. Plenty of power.
Does not bog down or loose power like most electric trimmers. Battery life is great. Battery also works in dewalt 20v ion drill and saw. Overall good product. Seems sturdy even for having a plastic head. Brushless design keeps it quiet too

This weedeater is perfect for my purpose and I'm sure it will be perfect for you as well
I already had a Ryobi electric weedeater and it was trash so I already had experience with electric weedeaters. I took a chance on it because it is dewalt and because I have been a big dewalt tool fan I already had 6 5AH batteries and 3 changers. I aas more than pleased with the performance of the tool. I used the high setting because it is a electric weedeater and I thought that the power of the tool would be less. I ended up rutting the yard so I just left it on the low setting. Don't use the smaller 2AH batteries because they won't have the longevity of the larger batteries and i have not used them so i don't know if it decreases the power of the Weedeater. It is light enough to use without strain over a long period of time. I didn't have to weedeat large weeds so I don't know the performance of the weedeater in that respect but for the yard work I do it is more than enough, I am happy with this tool.

Ease of use :
Very disappointed in this one...It just doesn't do the job. I have had this string trimmer for about half of a lawn season. I have a very normal, suburban home. Typical driveway length, sidewalks, and about 5 small trees in the back. I can not trim this property without this thing shutting off...even when there is still battery power. I can only make it about halfway through my property before this thing cuts off. I can switch batteries, and that helps for a minute. I don't know if it is over heating or what. I even run it on the low power setting. It's spring, 75 degree weather, literal definition of beautiful day and it can't trim my yard. I have provided pictures of my property, its a small property, only 8,000 square feet. This $200 trimmer should be able to finish this type of property and I have never been able to get through it. I've probably uses this close to 25 times now and have not been satisfied yet. Oh yeah...It doesn't come with a shoulder strap!
It's nice enough, its plug and play. Interchangeable batteries with all of my other Dewalt tools. I'm a huge fan of this brand and have many of their products. This is the first and only one so far that that has let me down.

Hi We appreciate your feedback. We would like to speak to you about the experience you had. Please contact support at WECARE@sbdinc.com I look forward to hearing from you.
DeWalt Trimmer Line is Excellent! It's strong and it lasts a long time. Most other trimmer line I have bought over the years, breaks easily and doesn't last long. DeWalt trimmer line is much better quality!
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 the line is placed.

Bought this 20 Volt Trimmer/Blower combo kit in June. Assembly was a breeze, a "cave man" could do it. Even though I've only used it 3 months I can tell this is the best tool I HAVE EVER USED. Can't say how it will hold up, but if it has the quality of my other Dewalt tools, I will be pleased for many years. I can't understand why I used the old gas trimmer so long. It does everything the gas trimmer does with so much more ease of operation. I have a very large "Homestead" to maintain, (3 city lots), and I like my lawn to be "manicured", not just mowed. I edge all the sidewalks, the driveway, along the street, and trim around several trees and the fence in back and around the house and flower beds. I replaced the factory trimmer head with the Oregon "Gator SpeedLoad Head", which fit perfectly. (See Photo) This is the best trimmer head out there. You can replace the cartridge in 30 seconds, honestly, and keep on trimming. No winding string, no tangles, just trimming!
The blower is perfect for cleaning my garage, sidewalks and driveway. Not quite the force of my old gas blower, but well suited for most projects. Of course they are both quiet, compared to my old gas rigs. I can get out and work early in the morning and the neighbors don't complain.
I have several Dewalt tools and I can honest say, Dewalt really showed themselves this time. I'm going for the chain saw next! By the way, for those folks who say you cannot edge with this trimmer, "hogwash". (Look at my photos) Just wear eye protection and long legged pants. I do anyway, have you seen my legs? (Photo not enclosed) If possible, I would give the trimmer 10 stars out of 5.
