Kobalt String Trimmer with 40 V Max Battery and Charger - 13-15-in is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 324.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a good string trimmer. Like so many I have been frustrated for years with a gas string trimmer.. I bought expensive ones cheap ones and within a year they stopped starting. Most recent one lasted 3 months. My yard is too big for an electric and no power. After extensive research I bought this string trimmer yesterday powered it up and used it today. Hallelujah it took me 10 minutes to put together trimmed for about 30 minutes and had 2 lights left. Cut both small and thick weeds and it took them down easily. Oh and its quiet as well.. I've only given 1 other 5 in my life. If you are tired of the gas ones like me this is for you. The only slight negative is its a little head heavy but not bad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful Trimmer [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The trimmer was easy to assemble. I wasn't sure about the strength of the grass shield, but it seems to serve the purpose. The trimmer is powerful. I tried it out on some weeds - no problem. Before writing this review, I wanted to try it out by edging the driveway. The trimmer did the job without effort. Checking the battery, their was still 1/4 of a charge. I am so pleased with the battery powered trimmer. In the past I've had to deal with extension cords which had a limited reach. It's also a bonus that it's quiet. The battery recharges quickly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Weakest product in Kobalt line Took my first one back because the bump knob didn’t seem to work. I’d have to push it in with my hand and pull line out manually. Thinking it was defective, I replaced it with a brand new unit. Same issue. I’ll be taking that back today and then gambling with a knock-off replacement battery for my ancient trimmer/edger from Worx. It cuts much better than the Kobalt. It’s a shame because I have the 40v Kobalt lawn mower, leaf blower and hedge trimmer. Those are fantastic. But the lawn trimmer (weed wacker) falls way short of the Kobalt standard.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Trimmer, but Respooling is a pain Bought this trimmer 3 months ago. Works like a beast. Trimming and edging is easy and well done. However, respooling this thing is a major pain in the butt. Following the instructions is useless. The manual says turn the bump knob counterclockwise to respool. Kobalt's response to another review said to turn the bump knob clockwise. Now which is it? I finally just removed the spool and hand wound it to refill the line and then replaced it back in the trimmer. The advertised "easy to respool" is not true. Not looking forward to having respool in the future. Can only give a 3 star rating for this reason

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Performance [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Product works fine. Only complaint I have is it is a bump head feed, but that is to be expected on an electric. Assembly was simple, all that was needed was the included allen wrench. The trimmer feels sturdy and is easy to use. The battery has a status button which shows the charge level. The metal guide can be moved up, if not needed. Having two speeds is nice, but I’m not certain how much I will use the lower speed. The top lever on the handle has to be engaged in order for the motor to engage, and the bottom lever controls engaging the motor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome 40-Volt battery Trimmer [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was very happy with this Trimmer. It was so easy to put together. It came with the only tool you need and it is much more sturdy than I thought it would be for a battery operated trimmer. I had it put together in 15 minutes. I was expecting something small and with short run times but I was very surprise with it's performance. It is a full size trimmer and it ran strong for the whole 40 minutes it said it would. I love the 2 speed control and it cut right through the heavier brush. I like not having to drag out 200 feet cord to do my front yard or mixing fuel to run the other weed trimmers. Great Trimmer all around.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Well on Dead Growth [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Although it is still considered winter in my area I was able to test the String Trimmer on last years tall grass and dead growth around the neighborhood mail boxes and along the back fence in my yard. The growth was brittle but the trimmer cut right thru it with very little effort. The .080 dual line held up well and will work even better when new growth comes in. My wife will be able to use it because it is relatively lighter then the gas-powered unit I have been using. I already have other 40 volt battery work units so I will have a extra charged battery readily available.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A little off the top [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have used gas trimmers for years. As I have gotten older, I have realized how heavy they can be. The new line of battery tools, even though the batter has some weight to it, are still so much lighter. This trimmer is easy to handle, quieter than a gas counterpart, and simple to start. Simply insert the battery and push the button, to get started. It is easy to control and because of its light weight it does not wear me out as I trim around the house. I would recommend this product to any homeowner, the versital battery pack is great, and I am going to need to pick up a few more tools to use it with now.
