FAQs about Battery-Powered String Trimmers

What are the key differences between battery-powered and gas-powered string trimmers?

Gas-powered string trimmers are the traditional models that are heavy, loud, and require ongoing maintenance. They are powerful pieces of equipment but it’s no secret they’re harmful to the environment and hard on the user.

Battery-powered string trimmers take down the same thick weeds as electric- and gas-powered equipment and you won’t have to deal with gas, oil changes, or extension cords. Cordless electric string trimmers can bring just as much power and the batteries last long enough to accomplish most trimming needs, all while also being better for the environment!

How powerful are battery-powered string trimmers?

For those homeowners with moderate to thick amounts of grass and weeds, an electric string trimmer can help you take back your yard without breaking a sweat. The DR PULSE String Trimmer features 62-volt Li-Ion power with a 450-watt brushless motor. The 2.5 Ah battery brings lots of muscle and uses a variable speed trigger that lets you rev up for tougher growth.

Are electric string trimmers lighter than gas-powered?

Gas-powered string trimmers can vary in weight, with lightweight trimmers ranging from 10-13 pounds before being filled with gas. Battery-powered string trimmers are much lighter alternatives and make a huge difference when being used for long periods of time. At just 10.6 pounds (including the battery), the DR PULSE won’t wear you out.

Are battery-powered string trimmers quieter?

Everyone knows the piercing noise of gas-powered weed whackers. Cordless electric string trimmers are much quieter, so trim away at any time of day.

How long will an electric string trimmer run for?

Battery-powered string trimmers can run for 30 minutes up to 50 minutes, depending on battery size. The DR PULSE can be used for 45 minutes or add an extra battery to double that run time!

Can I use my string trimmer’s battery in other yard tools?

One of the best innovations in power equipment is a cordless electric tool set. Instead of buying multiple tools that all need different batteries, purchase the “bare” equipment and one shared battery in a set. Nothing beats designing your own custom electric tool set!
