Dewalt whipper snipper

Well balanced....not very noisy.....plenty of run time on the battery......a lot less hassles than petrol trimmers........ A very good companion for the De Walt drill and Power Planter Auger.(which are themselves a great pair) Highly recommend.

Perfect Line Trimmer. SUPER HAPPY!!

I'm very impressed with my Dewalt Line Trimmer. I've had another Battery trimmer of a different brand, and it was useless so I was doubtful as to how good this one would be.. BUT ITS GREAT!! On one battery on High I did my whole Front lawns Edges which are Buffalo which was VERY over grown in places so it had to cut through several inches of thick buffalo runners to find the concrete edge and it handled it really well.. I petrol one could have done it a little quicker but I was Really impressed and also how long it ran for and the amount of power it has. VERY PLEASED with it. Love that its light weight and I just have to recharge battery's rather than buy and fiddle around with Petrol. Thank you.

Perfect for my needs

We have a town house with a small back yard. The string trimmer is absolutely perfect. It is light, speed can be controlled so very well and it does an outstanding job of trimming the grass. The amazing part is the battery use, very efficient indeed. I highly recommend this product.

I like the performance of Dewalt String Trimmer. Easy to use the battery last a long time and the trimmer is powerful enough for me.
