“I have always wanted a brushless cordless string trimmer.”
I have always wanted a brushless cordless string trimmer. I like that you can us 13 inches or 15 inches. I read that the durable .080” line that can handle the thickest grass and toughest weeds. You choose the speed that’s right for the job. It is also a plus that the 3-phase brushless motor with RunSmart™ onboard intel optimizes RPM and torque for peak performance in the toughest conditions. And battery include, yeah!
I am very pleased with my selection of this Toro string trimmer. It is not too heavy to handle. The grip has excellent positioning and is sturdy. The entire trimmer feels very substantial and well constructed. Even though it is not yet lawn care season, I was able to try it out on a warm day. It was easy to use and I was able to finish the trimming in a timely manner. It has a three year full warranty.
This is the first time I have used a battery powered string trimmer and I was pleasantly surprised by the power of the Toro 60-Volt Max Lithium-Ion trimmer. Run time for the trimmer is around 45 minutes; but the length of the string could factor into a shorter run time. There are 4 indicator lights on the battery that tell how much charge is left in the battery. The cut swath blade is set from the factory at 13 inches, and can be adjusted to 15 inches by removing two screws. To replace the string, two tabs need to be pushed in on the trimmer head to remove the cover and spool. I did find it a little difficult to remove the cover at first, but replacing the string on the spool was very easy to do (trimmer line diameter must be 0.080). I think it is worth mentioning that both the trimmer and battery are backed by a 3 year warranty. The Flex Force battery used by the trimmer can also be used with other Toro products. Overall, I am very happy with the results of the string trimmer and I certainly would recommend it for anyone in the market for a new trimmer. Well done Toro!
I am pleased with my new Toro 60-Volt Max Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless 13 in. String Trimmer with 2.0 Ah Battery and Charger. It is well balanced with the battery at the top and the brushless motor at the bottom. The brushless motor provides plenty of power and it is so much less noisy than my 2-cylinder or 4-cyliner gasoline powered trimmers. It took me about 35 minutes to trim around my house, shop, sidewalks, driveway, trees and shrubs; but there was still one bar left on the battery when I finished. I was surprised that I was able to trim my entire yard with only one battery. The string is smaller and a shorter than what I have I grown accustomed to with my gasoline powered string trimmers; however, I learned to quickly adjust to the smaller string and smaller cutting radius. I would definitely recommend the Toro 60-Volt Max Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless 13 in. String Trimmer with 2.0 Ah Battery and Charger.
“I would recommend the TORO 60V trimmer”
I recently ordered and received the TORO 60-Volt Max Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless 15 in. / 13 in. String Trimmer with the 2.0 Ah Battery and Charger. I ordered this unit to replace another battery powered string trimmer that I have been using. The difference between the two trimmers is tremendous with the TORO trimmer being far superior. The 60V TORO trimmer has a straight shaft which I prefer as you can use it for both trimming and edging. The battery for having a 60V capacity is lighter than my 40V model. With the battery installed on the 60V trimmer the weight distribution is fairly even which reduces fatigue when using it for a prolonged period of time. The run time on a full charge is stated as being 45 minutes, I found this to be fairly accurate as the first time I used the trimmer, I had it in almost continuous service for about 40 minutes and it still had one bar (of 4 bars) left on the batteries charge indicator. In summary, I would recommend the TORO 60V trimmer. It is fairly well balanced; has very good power and the battery lasts as advertised. I’ve included a few pictures to give an idea of what the unit looks like.
“I think this trimmer will be my new best friend.”
I think this trimmer will be my new best friend. Never been interested in a rechargeable trimmer until I held this one. No more mixing gas and oil is definitely a plus. It is well balanced, has a very strong long lasting battery. The speed control switch is a nice feature and the "bump string" advancement is effortless. The trimmer is well balanced and not too heavy. The rechargeable battery is easy to remove, charges quickly and the battery life is great. The string replacement looks to be rather easy as well, but hoping they come out with a quick replacement spool. There is plenty of power in this brushless motor. Definitely stronger than I thought it'd be.
“Toro has always had a reputation of quality products. ”
Toro has always had a reputation of quality products. In the past I have owned and used a Toro lawn mower and had been very satisified so when I moved to Texas I purchased a new Toro lawn mower and been using for the past 5 years and every spring I am always amazed that it will start on the first pull. So that led me to acquire a TORO String Trimmer and Blower. I was not surprised by the quality, features and power of the trimmer, Easy to assemble and powerful to use. I highly recommend their product.
This has to be the best balanced string trimmer I have ever used. The balance is right at the center of the handle and right down the center of the shaft, its also much lighter than any other heavy duty string trimmer out there. Then there is the quiet and the smoothness of this trimmer. No need for ear protection, the neighbors are also going to enjoy the quiet. So now you can cut at any time and not be worried that you might wake someone. The trimmer grip areas are rubberized and very easy to keep a good grip on the trimmer. The trimmer has an integrated safety lever as part of the variable speed control or throttle. Your hand just finds it naturally as part of the machine, as it should be. The benefit of this being electric is when your not actively cutting there is no idling motor, this makes the trimmer even better since your not using any power between cuts. I have a large yard, and lots of walking between areas that need to be cut, so I am saving all that idling of a gas motor. And also no starting and stopping a gas motor. A corded trimmer is out of the question for my yard, there would just be too much extension cord involved. This trimmer has a brushless motor, that makes much more power for a given size. Brushless motors don't have any internal parts to wear out like standard A.C. Or D.C. motors. Brushless motors are also more compact and weigh less, so they are great for this application. This trimmer has the bump or tap to extend the trimmer line, for me this is the best method for line advancement. This trimmer has a 60 Volt 2.0 Amp 108 Watt Hour Lithium Ion rechargeable battery. It charges in less than 90 min. (from complete discharge) and has a stable discharge rate, so it runs the trimmer at full power till the very end of the charge. The battery also has charge status lights on it so you can see how full the battery is at any time. I was able to do some heavy cutting for about an hour and still had about half a charge left. This trimmer also has one other big advantage, since its electric there is zero chance that this could start a fire like a gas motor with its hot exhaust. This trimmer is very easy to assemble, only two tools needed 4mm allen wrench (included) and #2 phillips screw driver. I for one am very happy that we now have access to really great cordless tools, they do everything that a corded or gas powered tool can do and have so many benefits. Highly recommend looking at this trimmer if your even remotely in the market for a string trimmer!
