Just picked up this trimmer - my first cordless trimmer. I have always owned Gas powered trimmers, but my new house has a smaller yard and I thought I would try the cordless route. Battery charged in about an hour and I used the trimmer to trim the grass all around the house and trees (both front and back yards) and then clicked the handy button to turn the trimmer into and edger and edged the driveway and all the sidewalks and still had plenty of battery life left. Both the trimmer and edger worked great!

The Li-ion Battery gets hot and shuts itself off internally after a few minutes of use around my house rendering the trimmer useless. Have to wait till battery cools down to use the trimmer again. Troubleshooting states: Using the battery when it is hot can reduce the operation time. I actually put the battery in the refrigerator make sure it was cool before using the trimmer it still stopped working after only a few minutes. I'm returning the trimmer to Ace for a refund.

    For trimming my small yard the (15 minute?) battery life is plenty. Power is good for grass trimming, but no good for deep grass or woody weeds.

      Comments about Toro 20V Cordless String Trimmer (51484):

      I really like the trimmer; the ease of use, light weight, and design. The one thing that is troubling is the looseness in the power head when trimming. It seems to be tighter in the edging position.

      Love the cordless extended battery; hate the head-wobble in Edger mode.

      By Damisa

      from Undisclosed

      Pros

      • Ease of Use
      • great trimmer - no head wobble
      • length of use with extended batteries

      Cons

      • grass dirt in the face in edger mode
      • hate head wobble edger mode
      • short life of standard battery

      Best Uses

        Comments about Toro 20V Cordless String Trimmer (51484):

        Toro Model 51487 Edger/Trimmer, Cordless: In Trimmer mode, the Toro 51487 cutting head is firmly attached to the pole and does not wobble. You can easily cut a straight, level surface. However, in the Edging mode (head rotated 90-degrees), the Toro 51487 head wobbles on the pole making it impossible to cut a crisp, straight edge. Instead you get a ragged, uneven edge. If anyone has found any way to tighten the head and prevent the wobble in Edger mode, there are many people who would greatly appreciate learning how to fix or mod the Toro 51487 Edger/Trimmer. The previous model, Toro Model 51486, did not have the wobble problem. It may have been a higher quality construction.

              Cons

              • finding the correct replacement spools
              • not quite the power of a gas trimmer camping
              • the wire guide disappeared after the first use

                Comments about Toro 20V Cordless String Trimmer (51484):

                This trimmer/edger performs very well. No hassle as compared with my gas trimmer. This product works well as an edger. Our yard is not that big so the run time on the battery is more than enough. My wife has used this product and finds it to be user friendly. So far this product overall has been better than expected.

                      Very good product for those small jobs -- about an hours worth, then change the battery and go for another hour. The batteries seem to charge up quick, too. Trouble turning the head back from edging position--really struggled with this. The wire edge guide is useless especially in the trimmer mode, but just take it off and go to work!

                      After using this trimmer one season, I find it works well as a trimmer, but forget about trying to edge with it (unless you like getting a face full of debris?). Also, it comes with some extra things on it, like battery saver (cuts the string shorter) which I removed because it's a waste and only was another place for weeds to collect. Also removed the edging wheel for same reason (plus what I mentioned above). Battery life pretty good and it gets the job done.

                              For a cordless trimmer it has a lot of power and very good battery life on the stock battery. However on second use, I started having a problem where when I held the trigger down the trimmer either did not turn on or it would turn on with very low power. Sometime it would rev up to full speed, other times it would start at full speed. Also the auto extend feature for the trimming string is unreliable. I often have to manually extend the string. If this behavior persists, I will likely pursue getting a refund and get a gas powered trimmer instead.

                                The only reason I rated this trimmer as a recommend is that I believe it has plenty of power for the job however the line will NOT advance no matter what I do. I have had this trimmer for a few months and may return it for another brand. If anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate it as I do believe this trimmer is better quality than some other brands. When I trim the grass I start out with a full length of string and then within a minute or so I am down to maybe a two to three inch length of sting that will not advance making the job painfully slow.

                                    Has enough juice in the battery to do the trimming for a 1/4 acre lawn. So nice not to have to use a cord or gas

                                        I am using this in May and the 6 month old battery is less than useless! DON"T buy unless you only need a run time of 15 minutes. I have a 24 volt lawn mower and it does my tiny yard with no problem, this however I am now on my third charge today and the edging wasn't that bad. It went from 30-45 minute run time to 15 minutes in less than 6 uses! I am old and disabled and this trimmer makes me look like a spring chicken!

                                          Does a real good job trimming and with a push of a button, turns into a edger. Lawn looks great after using the edger. Battery life is very good and works well. I really enjoy using this trimmer/edger. Makes my yard work so much easier.

                                              Very easy to use and can be taken anywhere due to be ing cordless, but it would be nice if you made a harness that could be used with it.

                                                I get about 45-60 minutes worth of trim time with the battery fully charged. You need to push the battery on the charger until you hear a "click." That's when you know the battery is properly seated in the charger, or else you may think the battery is charging when in fact it is not. Performance is top notch especially the edger. My only complaint is that the auto line feeder does not advance the line sometimes. I have to manually do it.

                                                  Although the battery life is excellent for my small yard, the tools auto/trigger feed stopped working after a few uses. You can manually press a button to feed more line but doing that every few feet will make you want to run out and but something else.

                                                        I don't know if I received a bad battery, but my battery never lasts more than 20 min. even when the trimmer string length is set to the power saver length. Now after 3 months of use, the battery also has a "too hot" issue. The battery lasts 20 min., you have to wait 30 min. for the battery to cool before you can recharge it, and recharging takes over an hour. It is impossible to get the yard done in one day. Also, the string cutter keeps flying off the deck of the trimmer.

                                                          The only problem is the battery. It lasts about 20 minutes and needs to be recharged, but has to cool for about 30 minutes first. This means in 3 hours I get about 40 minutes work done... It is powerful, feeds easily, wouldn't trade it for anything.
