New Strimmer
« on: March 26, 2022, 19:58 »
 :( due to ongoing issues with fuel and my old petrol strimmer I have bitten the bullet and bought a cordless one.

All my power tools are Dewalt XR's so I thought as I have a good supply of batteries the Dewalt is the one for me.
Just waiting for it to arrive.

My old one was a McCulloc, seemed ok but then with the change of petrol started playing up.

Dewalt cordless, Far superior  :lol: put at a battery on, flick the switch and away we go, no mixing petrol, no spilling it, no emptying it.

The only downside is taking the battery off and putting it in the charger :lol: :lol: :lol:

Hello what's the run time on a charge for the strimmer,I've looked at cordless machinery but have issues with the power station near me ,its supposed to be environmentally friendly ,it takes 100 acres a day of timber from America  for its power this timber is sent to Germany and Sweden to be processed into pellets then to England to be transported by train to the power station,this puts me off using cordless machinery   jezza

With a 5amp battery you will look around 40 mins un time they say, I use a 1.5 amp which is enough to strim everything around the plot thats required. If I am doing a lot I will chuck me 4 amp battery on and I as yet not run out of power.

I have a cordless strimmer, my second one, its made by G Tech

It does all the edges of my lawn, with power to spare (I have spare batteries anyway)

It has these plastic things that do the work, they tend to fly off when they wear down though

I bought mine when it was just released and I got a discount on it, 24 hour delivery as well (arrived less than 24 hours after ordering it)

I'm happy with mine :D
It's all about the journey, not the destination
