I bought this bad mamma-jamma last year and so far I get about 3 trimmings per battery charge which I find to be mighty impressive. Coolest part about weed-wacking for the first time this spring might you ask? Literally pick it up and go trim. No fueling issues or pulling a starter cord. Also this sucker is quiet, you can still wear your headphones to rock out but you can also hear things/vehicles sneaking up on you - one may say it could be a safety component.

Gas like power!
I bought this trimmer to get into the flexvolt line and I must say this trimmer has so much power. It comes with a standard .080 line, it does a good job with that line but I swapped it out for a .090 and noticed a huge difference in performance and durability. It eats through the weeds like a hot knife through butter. Well-balanced, just 15 pounds, battery life is great and that’s why I got into this platform because I can use the Flexvolt battery with my current DeWalt tools including my Flexvolt blower and 2x20 lawnmower which both items are great. Don’t care what people think about the lawn mower, it makes my job so much easier compared to the gas mower I had a year ago. Thank you Dewalt.

Overall great value
Good weight. Good power. Balanced well. The only negative is the ridiculously small guard that comes with it. Not sure what they were thinking but there is so much stuff that shoots back at you while trimming.

Cuts like crazy
I have been searching for a string trimmer I could start easily, and be able to use for an hour to do all the difficult places in the yard. I am so happy we chose the Dewalt DCST970. I just finished the yard, this trimmer was perfect, it cut my 12" tall grass just like butter, worked for an hour and still had one green light left. Worth every penny!!

Great for limited use
This trimmer is great for quick small jobs. I don't recommend it for jobs that take longer than 30 minutes.

Lots of power.
I purchased the trimmer this summer and love it. I got rid of my gas trimmer. The battery lasts along time, usually get 5 uses before having to charge. The only thing I wish is the debris gard would be bigger. Told my father in law about the trimmer and he bought one immediately as well.

Doesn't lack for power and liking not having to worry about having to keep gas on hand for keeping up on the lawn. If you already own the 60v batteries , it seems like an obvious choice.

Power like a professional Gas Trimmer
I needed a strong trimmer and my dad had a powerful gas trimmer that I used growing up. After watching several reviews and doing research I decided that the flexvolt trimmer would suit my needs and boy did it! I have tall plants and bamboo that was planted in my back yard and this cuts right through them. The only issue I found was the string it comes with breaks easily but if you upgrade to a tough .80 line it works great. The trimmer is very well balanced with the 3.0 ah flexvolt battery installed and runtime seems to be somewhere around 40 minutes to 1 hour of strong use. This is a great trimmer and plenty capable of cutting large overgrowth on banks and ditches.
