Excellent bit of kit just what I needed

Jimcrossland, 14/07/2023

We made does the job fantastic!👍🙂

Davie B, 08/07/2023

Excellent strimmer, would recommend it.

GHewson, 07/07/2023

Excellent product but still waiting for a reel of string to fit it told it won’t be long though.

Garry Milburn, 04/07/2023

Nice unit .. not too sure about the balance, if using for a long run … will find out soon. The unit works well and transporting is easy with it folding

GT, 04/07/2023

Great strimmer with Dewalt build quality. I've always used petrol strimmers in the past as to be able to cope with the large areas of rough ground I manage and was a bit sceptical about a battery powered strimmer but the Dewalt managed the task easily. As with other peoples reviews I found I needed to but handle below the joint in the shaft as this made the strimmer far more balanced and an optional strap would be beneficial. Nice and quiet with a good run time, The protective guard around the sting is quite large and can be a bit awkward in tight areas but that is a very minor issue. Really pleased with the strimmer and I don't think I will be going back to petrol again!

MJH, 16/06/2023



For a battery product its good

Mr finn, 09/04/2022

Great strimmer, easy to use and store as it folds in half.

Gary Pavitt, 06/04/2022

Great line trimmer and very easy to use.

ALAN CARTER, 04/11/2021

As expected, 5⭐️‘s with Dewalt. I run the 18v system and doesn’t make sense to look elsewhere.

Tom Pierce, 10/08/2021

Great quality

Jesper Christensen, 30/07/2021

Great feed system. Tackles tough weeds

Jay C, 27/07/2021

Balances better with handle mounted below joint and reversed. Good solid machine

Stephen, 25/07/2021

Powerful,efficient Dewalt

David, 23/07/2021

As described happy so far

Philip Winkle, 23/07/2021

Great strimmer, very pleased so far. Assembly instructions could be better but fairly easy to work out. Bought the bare unit as I already had batteries for my Dewalt drills which are interchangeable. The strimmer is longer than I had anticipated but is well balanced and the extra length is very practicable. Used a 5 amp hour battery which lasted about 25 mins and almost strimmed the whole of my wife's overgrown allotment. This is a far better tool than the one it replaces. It feels sturdy and performs very well, removing thick growth with ease. I consider this to be a quality tool and would highly recommend it.

Rod (Essex), 22/07/2021

Great tools as always

Dane Tyas, 19/07/2021

Very pleased with this good power, auto feed work nicely. no hassle starting as with my other petrol powered strimmer. I have large area to work but have 2 5AH batteries so charge 1 whilst striming, runs for 1/2 hr on each full charge. 10 / 10 Dewalt as with most of your battery stuff.

Dale Slocombe, 16/07/2021

Excellent build quality, great tool.

James Boyd, 16/07/2021

Excellent strimmer , folding shaft a bonus for transporting .

Simon Earnshaw, 16/07/2021

Excellent product, super fast delivery from FFX and a great price

Gavin Barker, 08/07/2021

Excellent little unit, does a great job keeping the longer grass overgrowth around our garden under control. Only note I would make, is that there is no shoulder strap with this cordless strimmer (which I was used to from petrol machines). No big deal though - this is very light, and doesn't really need a support strap, certainly not for the small area I'm using it on.

Mr Clifton, 08/07/2021

Very good quality works a treat used today for the first time

Peterhorner, 08/07/2021

Excellent equipment but could do with a strap to support when uding

Ann, 06/07/2021

Great battery strimmer, easier to use than my petrol one in those awkward spots

Customer ntec ltd., 02/07/2021

Bought this as a bare unit as I already had batteries to fit, which made it cheaper. Competitive price. Easy to assemble but could do with having more strimmer line to begin with.

Simon Hall, 02/07/2021

Very good string trinner

Malcolm Williams, 30/06/2021

Excellent and a 5amp battery lasts a long time, foldable so fits in a boot and great service from FFX

mike smith, 25/06/2021

Really nice bit of equipment. Very quiet and strong.

Grzegorz Pietrzykowski, 25/06/2021

Well built and works perfect. Typical dewalt

Paul boyce, 24/06/2021

This is a great hit of kit I have used in my back and front garden and didn't even break any line not like the others iv had I highly recommend this strimmer

Chris Gower, 23/06/2021

Easily as powerful as a petrol strimmer. Great quality as expected from Dewalt. Piece of cake to assemble without the help of YouTube videos. (It’s 4 screws people).

Scott Johnstone, 10/06/2021

What I expected good trimmer

Mr White, 10/06/2021

Broke after only a dozen uses - but replaced by FFX

markus blee, 10/06/2021

good quality trimmer. 1 star deducted as it is quite heavy at the trimmer end.

Ian Howard, 10/06/2021

Trimming is now a pleasure and not a bind , no Fuel , low noise , lightweight , simple to use and a real bargain too. Winner in my book . Thanks Dewalt .

Mr Bailey, 07/06/2021

Very please with it

Dave Stone, 05/05/2021

This strimmer is brilliant and I have awarded it 5⭐, however if you're a short-ish person like me (5' 8") it's a bit long and my trigger arm is a bit up in the air!!

Terry Hills, 05/05/2021

As with all of these reviews it's too early to say if this is all that it's made out to be. However on first impressions and early use it's great. Bigger than what I thought it would be. Long term may be a 5 hope so

Ian Thompson, 24/04/2021

Brilliant bit of kit.

Graham Bradford, 14/03/2021

Good service

Angus Davis, 27/01/2021

Quick delivery. The tool delivered in original box. Tested and found in good order.

YurSar, 25/11/2020
