No gas, No Carburetors, No Problem! I love my battery powered tools, and now my battery powered yard tools as well. Years ago, battery powered lawn tools would limp along compared to gas powered. But with the battery and motor technology these days, it’s hard to tell the difference… well not really, you don’t have to pull the string over and over to start it. 🙂 I’ll press the button and charge a battery any day.
Today, I am reviewing the DEWALT model# DCST972X1 FLEXVOLT 60-Volt MAX Lithium-Ion Cordless Attachment Capable String Trimmer. It’s power and run time will not disappoint!
Let’s check out some of the features of this DEWALT model:
- It is powered by a DEWALT 60V Battery. It comes with a 9 Ah FLEXVOLT 60V but is also backwards compatible to work with 20V DEWALT tools.
- The motor is universal attachment capable, accepts DEWALT attachments as well as other universal brands making it very versatile.
- It has 2 – speed settings HI and LO for added power or extended run time.
- It is compatible with 0.08″ duel line.
- Adjust the swath size between 15″ and 17″ for a larger area of cut.
- With the battery installed, the DEWALT String Trimmer only weights 12.8 lbs.
How It Works
The DEWALT String Trimmer can be stored in 2 pieces or swap the string trimmer attachment with another attachment like a edger, pole saw or hedge cutter.
Slide the attachment shaft into the motor shaft. Then after the button engages, secure the pieces together with the wing nut.
Slide a charged 60 volt DEWALT battery on the end and you’re ready to go.
Choose your speed setting HI or LO.
Then flip the safety switch forward, press down on the upper trigger and press up on the lower trigger to start the head spinning.
It has a large bump button and feed trimmer area, to make it easy to extend the string as you go.
The 9Ah 60 volt battery allows me to trim around my whole house, my outer fence and up and down the sidewalk and driveway.
Changing the string is easy too. Press the plastic tabs in, on the sides of the string holder, and pull off the holder.
Line up the holes and thread the line thru the center. Pull the string to be even on each side.
Press the outer covering in and turn clockwise until about 5″ of string is showing.
Replace the cap and you’re ready to go.
Overall this DEWALT String Trimmer is an excellent battery powered string trimmer. The 60V battery offers plenty of power for long periods of time. I am able to trim the edges of my whole yard, around my house and along the sidewalks and driveway on one battery charge. I really like that the motor can be used with various attachments. The DEWALT string trimmer is light weight and ergonomic to use. I would definitely recommend it to any friend.
