The most frustrating day of my life
I purchased this Dewalt line trimmer from Bunnings Warehouse about 2 months ago, since the majority of my tools were Dewalt I thought I would replace my existing battery powered Ryobi with this brushless Dewalt line trimmer.
This was the worst decision and tool purchase I have ever made in my life, words cannot adequately describe the frustration, disappointment and bouts of anger this product has caused me. I don't even know where to start.
The trimmer itself is longer than most line trimmers which makes it awkward to use in tight spaces, I...think this is done so that it improves the centre of gravity to balance out the weight as its hefty for a battery powered trimmer. The bump feed is horrendous, the internal notches are facing the wrong way so when you load line you have to first fold it back on itself which is near impossible with 2mm line. This process is incredibly frustrating and would have the be the worst mechanism I have encountered, even getting the spool to come off first go is annoying. You have to be super careful when you load line also as it jams really easily which leads to losing the line into the spool, this normally happens to me 10-15 times when I am trying to do my edges. The two power settings are a joke, they are just there so Dewalt can say it has two power settings, you can hear an audible change but it makes no difference to battery run times or cutting power what so ever.
