But about the battery. What battery would it take ?
I see 20v 5amp.
All my dewalt are 20v 1.5amp. I suppose it wouldnt work then would it?
But with less power. So that wouldnt be very practical.

Blackdeck 20v one is pretty good, it’s double stonger than my Ryobi 18v one which is very weak.Expliciate wrote: ↑ Except most of the Ryobi 18V yard tools are mediocre at best. I've gone through a handful of 18V ryobi yard tools since I own many batteries and always returned them cause they fail to deliver. The only decent one is the 18V brushless trimmer, which is about the same price as this dewalt. Both as tool only.
The only good 18V yard tools is the Milwaukee M18 fuel line. Otherwise you're better off with 40V +
You are better off with the Toro trimmers assuming you have the 40V or 60V batteries. The 18V tools are okay at best, and really only for those that have batteries and don't want spend more on the higher voltage line-up.
If you compare it to an echo gas trimmer, it would under-deliver in performance as a trade-off for battery tool convenience.

Your best bet would be to wait for a good deal on a tool with batteries and charger included. The bigger the battery, the better. For example, I got this grinder with 2x 5a batteries, upgraded charger and tool bag for $229

Was interested in this trimmer - some reviews I saw online say theres a bit of an annoying play in the joint where the trimmer folds - do you find the same?blind56 wrote: ↑ Might actually be lower at KMS Tools if you call in/email them/buy in-store. They have it listed as part of their MAP program.

I have this trimmer, works great if you're already in the Dewalt system. Motor makes a rumble noise as well which is hilarious/awesome, doesn't sound like all the other electric trimmers with their high pitched whirring noises.
I use it for edge trimming, but as far as I know there's no actual trimmer wheel attachment available. What complicates things is that there's a trigger lockout that you need to press as well, so it's a little bit awkward to hold. Otherwise though, it's a great trimmer. Again, wouldn't get it if you're not already in the Dewalt system though.
Edit: Just checked my invoice from a year ago, it was cheaper though KMS Tools via their MAP program. Not going to post the price here since they aren't actually allowed to publish the lower price.
Edit 2: Saw the post above, it's cheaper via PM at HD.

Not sure if they offer free shipping for this. I know they didn't when I tried to order it for shipping to Alberta earlier this summer when it was on sale for $189.

I haven’t noticed any play at all in mine and I use it in a variety of different positions. The latch mechanism that secures both halves together is quite rigid.
