When I read the initial review of the book, I wondered if I would make a wise purchase. It turned out to be one of our best decisions to take care of 60 yards x 60 yards. The device is much lighter (which may make some people think they are not well made), and even my husband was skeptical when he first took the tool out of the box. His first comment was, "are these toys?" Some comments suggest that leaf blowers are fragile. I think if you're going to use it as a professional landscaping tool, or if you have a lot of trees falling off piles of autumn leaves, then it's not a good choice for those uses. However, it is perfect for cleaning after pruning and pruning. We have a big porch and our driveway is wide behind the house. This hairdryer cleans them quickly and perfectly-not mowing grass, a large piece of dry soil, or small visible stones. We have a tree that will drop small leaves, and the blower is perfect for these leaves. Pruning is everything one needs to keep the fence lines neat and beautiful, and neatly edged to the sidewalks and garages. Here are two main reasons why my husband likes these products so much: 1) they are much quieter than before (the same brand) and 2) the battery life is significantly improved. Even in our small yard, we have four batteries that must be recharged to get the job done. Now, he can do this very quickly, all with an interchangeable battery. He was so fond of pruning that he squeezed all the sidewalks to the side.

After reading some one-star reviews, I learned a little about the tool. After receiving this tool, it took less than 10 minutes from unpacking to operation, that is, the instructions were not read. I had to laugh at a comment that it was difficult to change the black handle to a different position. LOL you should not move the handle, you move the two pivot points on the tool, which gives you a wide range of positions. The automatic feeder works by pausing the tool for a few seconds, and when it slows down, it spits out the string as it should. Conclusion: some people should not operate any power tools if they do not know how to use them. Reject negative comments. By the way, I have an average size yard that can be edged, trimmed and switched to my blower all without charging. Good tool. Oh, 2 more comments on negative comments. One person said that the weight of the tool is at the bottom, which makes it difficult to operate. Yes, it was before you put the battery in. It then becomes an appropriate balancing tool. And the handles I read about are fragile. I think if you don't lock it up. The best $50 lawnmower. Have a nice day.

I am surprisingly pleased by this weed whacker/trimmer! Despite all the positive reviews, I just couldn't shake the notion that a battery-powered tool like this would be underpowered, or run out of batteries quickly.I am very happy to report that the positive reviews are right! This is VERY powerful and was able to handle very thick weeds, tall overgrown grass, and also delicate grass. I was also impressed by the edging -- it went very quickly!We already own a gas-powered trimmer, but it took all my arm strength to just hold the thing... I had no muscles left to aim it! This is so lightweight and relatively quiet. I'm thrilled that now I can trim around the garden and walkways when I need to, instead of nagging my husband.I purchased the set with 2 batteries which I definitely recommend. They last a very decent amount of time (about 15-20 mins for me before it starts slowing down) so having 2 saves it from being a frustrating experience. I also like that the manual specifically and explicitly states that you can leave the battery on the charger with no ill effects, and encourages you to charge it frequently rather than letting it drain down. It's much more convenient.In summary, two thumbs up!

So, I have a bunch of lxt Makita tools, and I need a lawnmower. The man in my heart wanted to buy two shots, but I saw some comments on the 18v setting on YouTube, so I decided to give it a try. I'm glad I did. Now I mow the lawn every time I mow the lawn, whether it's a few small places that I can't hit with a lawnmower, or the whole place. A very powerful motor that can quickly pass through light / medium materials. My 2-ampere battery lasts several times between charges (perhaps a total run time of 30-40 minutes, which in my opinion is huge for a battery that charges so fast). Obviously, it's not as bad as par 2, and if you take care of the lawn professionally, it won't cut it (ha). But for a homeowner who uses it 1-6 times a month, it's the bee's knee!

This is much better than expected. I like the adjustable speed and freedom of cordless design. I can blow out the front driveway, the front sidewalk, two side porches, the back sidewalk and the back terrace in 10 minutes. Because the extension of my old hairdryer used to take an hour. I use the GreenWorks hairdryer to better control where the debris is blown away / easier to clean up. Use speed set to 1. My old 210 mph rope blower blew away the leaves and my gravel. Made a hole in the soil. When I tested the battery capacity, the Greenworks ran at full speed for about 25 minutes, or changed speed for 45 minutes.

If you only need one edge, it's great, but if you need a light weed WACKER and edge combination of the garden, the small lawn, it's great. Marginal ease makes the matter more valuable than its shortcomings. Portable, well balanced, easy to operate, and it is very convenient to have no wires / gases. Automatic feed (after each trigger release) with the collision is good, no trouble, but if you trigger pleasant (and continuous), you can waste a lot of strings. People who use free spools ($60 feet 9) from work complain that free spools melt and automatic feeding doesn't work. No experience, but you can reassemble this model, and I've been doing it, because you can get better industrial strings cheaper ($12 for 200 feet). Admittedly, half of the marketing of this model is for convenience, which makes the free spool worth the cost and risk. Void: 1) anemia is understandable compared to any wired or aerodynamic spool. If you have realistic expectations and understand that this weed WACKER, which is less than $100, is a light task, you will be satisfied with it. It could not cut my original borderless lawn, and I needed my powerful and unforgivable rope craftsman to cut it for the first time. However, it was very easy for this thing to maintain these edges after that. 2) the battery gave me only 20 minutes to use after the first charge. After the second charge, the performance was much better, and I didn't run out of it after I finished my two lawns. Charging takes a few hours, so if you have a huge light lawn or.

These things are amazing! The trimmer was assembled in a moment (four small screws connected to the guard). Once the battery is fully charged. It ran like a top and did everything I asked it to do. The hairdryer amazingly took my bejesus out of me. It looked light, its power was amazing, and its whisper was quiet. No smelly gasoline or irritating wires. The future has come!

I used the Black&Decker LST136W 40V Max Lithium string Trimmer for a while before deciding to upgrade to the DEWALT DCST990H1 Max XR string modifier. Here are two comparisons regardless of price. POWER-DeWalt is a trimmed beast. It can pass through dense BlackBerry vines and dense tall Reed grass. Boulder does not have the ability to cut down heavy shrubs easily, but it is very suitable for turfgrasses and medium weeds. The ERGONOMICS-DeWalt is difficult to control because of its length and huge battery pack. You really need a lot of arm and core physical strength to use this tool in a controlled way. -bounded is lightweight, well-balanced and easy for anyone to use. The PRECISION-DeWalt is so huge and difficult to control that you don't have much precision when pruning. It can destroy everything in front of you. -bounded allows you to cut more precisely, which is good if you work around small trees, vegetable shrubs or flowers. The BATTERY-DeWalt 6 ampere battery is huge and heavy, but if you need extra running time at high power (> 1 hour), it's well worth it. The size of the baked D battery is about 1/3 of that of the DeWalt and can only last about 10 Mel for 15 minutes at a high power level. At low to medium levels, intermittent use of Bundd will last for about an hour. Low-Medium is powerful enough to perform standard pruning tasks such as turfgrass and small weeds. SAFETY-DeWalt sprays particles violently everywhere because of its power and slight protection. Looking forward to getting you.

The trimmer arrived on time and did not damage the box. I have three batteries that I use to charge my other Ryobi tools and can be used at any time. My yard is quite large, want a lightweight trimmer, will not let me tired, because I am a quite young 65 years old, but keen on DIYER and gardener. This tool suits me well. I worked for about 45 minutes and completely used a battery, about half the time. From an ergonomic point of view, this is very effective for people who are about 5 feet 6 tall. This is definitely a custodian who will get rid of my gas pruning and small electric pruning. It's very convenient.

This is definitely the best cordless trimmer I've ever used! I would say that it is almost as good as the featherweight of a lawnmower, and for me, it is 100% better! I can never let another start, if I do this, I am too tired to work again! I am 53 years old and have a rheumatic disease called ankylosing spondylitis. My illness is at an advanced stage, and my waist is fused from back to neck. I can't turn my neck, and I certainly can't have a heavy herbicide tied to me. I hired most of the work I did, but they never did it well enough. They always had 20 to 30 minutes to do. I have an area, pure tall fescue or tufted fescue, where the lawnmower can't go back except the push mower. My people obviously didn't believe them, so he swayed a lawnmower there. I'll watch it again, this little gem makes it look like it's been cut! It goes straight through those things and the weeds around, and I like that I'll never mess up the rope! I've had this for four years, and I just ordered my second spool! It's all over with the string! It moves forward on its own and will not fall into chaos or anything. Plug in the battery, charge it, do it again! This is also a good big herbicide, but very light!

Best Battery String Trimmers Buying Guide

Henry Colon
Share post:

To keep your garden free of weeds, a string trimmer is an effective tool, since it allows you to eliminate all unwanted plants and even small shrubs, depending on the engine power.

If you plan to purchase one of these devices, we recommend taking into account some features, such as battery power, which is high enough to allow you a variety of tasks and cuts.

Depending on the type of unwanted plant you need to cut, you may need a metal disc. Also important are the weight of the equipment and the dimensions, which allow you to handle it with ease.

When cleaning the garden of weeds, bushes and other elements (or even removing light bushes, depending on power) the gas string cutter is an excellent tool, light and easy to use. Read on!

Battery Power

When you go to buy a good and economical gas string cutter, you must take into account the use that you will give it. Mainly because depending on that use it is necessary to choose a battery of greater or lesser power.

If you plan to use it to trim weeds and a light brush, a simple battery is enough, while the thicker the material to be cut and the more abundant its presence, it will be necessary to increase the battery power level, in addition to changing the piece cut.

Cutters and assembly

The battery string trimmer performs the cutting by turning at the high speed of a cutting element, which can be a traditional cutting disc made of a metallic material, to a thread that is also placed in the cutting area and that adapts to the different configurations of grass and brush you can face.

In this case, it is essential to verify the universal character of the machine, in terms of its measurements, so that you do not have problems when assembling any type of thread or cutting disc so that the machine is much more versatile.

At this point, it is also important that the assembly of said cutting elements is simple and, if preferable, that it can be done without the need for tools, although always guaranteeing an adequate clamping of the thread or disk, which maintains the necessary cutting power.


Compared to other tools, the battery string trimmer is self-supporting equipment that carries the operator directly on its connected body through a harness system that allows maintaining adequate mobility and comfort.

This is why it is essential that, when organizing your battery string trimmer comparison, you check that the fastening system is adequate and comfortable. It is also important that you verify that the weight is as light as possible, although adapted to the characteristics of the device and that this allows adequate utility.

Elements such as the length of the cutting arm, the handlebar or the existence of a double handlebar or even the existence of a second harness for the heavier machines are essential elements to ensure that the operation of the machine is adequate and that you find it comfortable to use.
