Rated 5 out of 5 by from DeWalt 60 volt cordless weedwhip Awsome..... well balanced lighter there than the gas Craftsman it replaces. my first 60 volt DeWalt was the circular saw which is a meat eater to say the least. so I weedwhipped the yard with the older 60 volt battery from last year while the new one was charging about 40 minutes. used on low setting it worked fantastic and the battery still has a full charge indication. new battery is charged now, no issues. highly recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Sure This Trimmer is Worth Keeping I just purchased this trimmer and started using for the first time today. First the positives: The battery charged as advertised in about 2 Hours. Unit was very easy to assemble. Battery locked into position well. Unit has massive amounts of power and is very easy to use. Balance is good but I may buy a shoulder strap down the if I keep it. Know the bad stuff: Don't know who came up with this trimmer head design, but DeWalt should consider finding them a new job. The very first time I used it, both strings disappeared into the housing after just a few minutes of use. I took it back my garage and tried to figure out how to get the strings back out. Went to the manual and found no help. I finally figured it out and was able to get the strings back out the holes by removing the top spring loaded cover. After the fix I went back out and started using it again, and guess what, it happen again not just once but three times. I even changed the string to a .095 thinking maybe the string supplied with this unit was just to brittle to handle the speeds. My wife wants wants to take it back but I'm going to keep for another week and see if the problem continues. It's to bad that just one component can make a difference on how a product is judged. We'll see how it goes. PS: The guard as so many other people have said is to small for unit with this much power.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Frustration Yes.. it has great power. Yes, it's a beast and will cut big weeds. I didn't have any problem with the battery or the charge lasting a long time. What I'm not crazy about is: 1) The bump mechanism gets clogged with weeds and stops working so I have to take it apart and try to clean the mechanism out, which is difficult because you can't get to the part where the weeds wrap around. 2) The head part is REALLY hard to get off. 3) The string is pretty wimpy. I've only used the .80 size but I'd like to try the heavier stuff but can't find it anywhere. 4) The trimmer is pretty heavy for me. I don't know why it doesn't come with a strap of some kind. I'm going to have to rig something because I have to rest my arms often. 5) It throws alot of debris back onto me. The guard is just too small and doesn't keep weed clippings from coming back and hitting me. I really should have a full face shield instead of just safety glasses.

Is it possible to reverse the direction of spin of the trimmer? It seems to spin in the opposite direction (counter clockwise) compared to any other trimmer I've used (clockwise spin).

Asked by: JEP77
No, the direction of the spin cannot be changed.

I'm reading conflicting opinions. I know it comes (sadly) with a small battery, but does it or does it not come with a proper fast charger?

Asked by: Canuckistan
The charger included is DCB115. Chargers battery (DCB206) in 90 mins or less thus minimizing downtime. The Battery included with the trimmer is DCB209.
