Only a 3 just now as I haven’t had a chance to give it a full on session yet but initial reaction is good. Shame FFX sold it with advert indicating a harness but there wasn’t one in the box…ho hum. That would have been really useful..

Mr Mitchell, 07/09/2023

Really good at cutting and a godsend not having to faff with cables

Roy Stewart, 27/08/2023

Very happy with it no complaints whatsoever

stephen cooper, 30/05/2023

Excellent Dewalt strimmer. Fits in with other dewalt xr series tools . Easy to use and does the job perfectly well. Only thing could improve is a shoulder strap.

Hugh McK, 10/04/2023

Well made and sturdy cuts through everything in it’s path easy

Robert Tate, 01/07/2022

Mr glyn morgans, 05/05/2022

Using this tool is great no more trailing cables and easy to use

Erik Bond, 01/05/2022

Definitely the best strimmer I have owned love Dewalt tools .👍

ROBERT HARRIS, 21/04/2022

Very impressed with this tool. powerful for my needs and more convenient than a petrol strimmer I love the 2 speed option mostly using it on the low setting for garden edging trim. I would recommend this.

Tony from Scotland, 21/04/2022

Good product - this strimmer is well built and works well within the limitations of a battery powered unit. Not as powerful as our petrol unit but does a good job on the lawn edges. Purchased as my wife prefers electric garden tools we both found it easy to use. Not a cheap item , especially as a bare unit, but if you already have other Dewalt cordless tools and batteries it’s a good addition to your garden tools.

MAH, 20/04/2022

Lightweight and so simple to use. Strumming wire good quality and unlike other brands I have used does not continually break off and need rethreading. Only wish I had purchased this year’s ago.

Karen Hayward, 18/04/2022

Good product. Works well and good battery life

Ian Wedge, 14/04/2022

Good quality product.Powerful enough for large garden.Easy assemble.

ROGER JAMES, 13/04/2022

Should have bought one years ago. up til now had always relied on a petrol trimmer heavy noisy messy and a pain to remember petrol. Now just plug in battery and off you go. Brilliant

Anonymous, 10/07/2021

very impressed with this strimmer, good run time using 5amp battery but even better with the 54v 6amp , quite straight forward to use 2 speeds , not to heavy all & all very happy , good fast delivery as always from FFX Peter ( Joiner )

Peter, 09/07/2021

Very nice product. Lightweight and powerful. Runs for 20 minutes or so on one charge, which is plenty enough for most normal sized gardens.

Martin Hadfield, 01/07/2021

Very comfortable to work. Need a big battery


Great tool.

Mr Howard Edwards, 18/06/2021

Great product, safety switch situated at the top of the unit which you have to operate before squeezing the trigger feels cheap & flimsy. The physical length of the trimmer is a lot longer than you would think, Great if you are between 5'11 and 7'. Anyone shorter may need to adjust the position of the handle on the shaft (easy to do) which makes it a lot less awkward. That said, it doesn't take long to adjust to its size.

Rod Crowhurst, 15/06/2021

Quiet and effective. It's a fab piece of kit, I can recommend, especially if you already have dewalt batteries

Andy, 06/06/2021

Excellent service

Jamie, 03/06/2021

Dewalt says it all great kit

RODNEY WALSH, 29/05/2021

Should have bought one of these years ago, makes the job so much easier without a cable dragging behind. Would be nice to have a shoulder strap with it but thats just being a bit picky.

Greg, 28/05/2021

I won't use FFX again I've had the dewalt trimmer for a month now, but I can't use it due to missing screws for the safety guard, 3 emails sent still no screws.

Jonathan Goble, 17/03/2021

Great piece of kit. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars is due to the folding in half description. Yes it does break in half but it requires tools and after several breaking in half's it wouldn't be long before it started to wear loose. If you don't need to half it then it's spot on.

ONE-ILL, 28/09/2020

Ideal for what I needed. Works well.

Stuart Hoddinott, 24/09/2020

Very good product does exactly what I wanted but needs to be able to have a bit more cord out

m ansell, 10/08/2020

Good solid product. Easy to use. Works well even with 2Ah battery. Like the two speed options.

Richard Brown, 26/07/2020

Great product, very easy to use, I got fed up trying to start my petrol strimmer. My 3Ah 18 V batteries last about 20 minutes in lower speed each so plenty for my use. Gets a bit heavy for me after a while so could really do with a harness being supplied. It may balance better with a heavier battery though. I have already written a previous review concerning the lack of screws necessary for assembly and I am still waiting for them from FFX after 4 weeks.

Alan Hester, 13/07/2020

excellent product very comfortable to use


excellent best battery strimmer I have used or seen
