A strong strimmer which deals adequately with all types of grass. My only complaint is with the plastic handle which broke as I attempted to put it on. Luckily a lot of my strimming is done one-handed. I feel the steadying handle should be made of a more pliant plastic. Apart from that a good strimmer at an affordable price.
Good value for money while it worked. However after about a year the battery charger stopped working and Tru Shopping are unable to provide a replacement charger, so the strimmer now is totally useless.
The charger appears to be a unique design so would be impossible to get from say a Maplins etc.
I've used this a few times now and the battery does last for around 45 mins which is great as I can get the whole garden. It is for strimming edges so don't buy it if you think it will do long grass. So far so good.
I am waiting for instructions on how to return the extra battery charger...which I didn't realise was included with the strimmer.....(another battery would of been a better extra...)
Anyway please send details on how to return it to you.
I purchased this strimmer to use in my local churchyard around family graves and it has proved to be an extremely useful tool. It's performance is excellent for what it cost and I would certainly recommend it.
I bought the Trueshopping Cordless Battery Strimmer to replace one which I had for 10 years. I found the new product to be much more powerful than the previous low powered cordless strimmer and found that it was capable of much heavier work. The only (big) downside to the strimmer is the length of recharge time of the battery. It works long and hard when charged but does take a full 8-10 hours to fully charge which is a chore especially if you don't finish the job in hand and then you have an inordinate time to wait. Overall though a good product for the money.
The strimmer was delivered quickly and I am happy with the product. However, shortly after ordering from Trueshopping I found the same product on Amazon cheaper. On the Trueshopping web site they claim to offer price match but when I asked them to match the Amazon price they refused! Looks like their price match claim is not what it seems.
So, when ordering from Trueshopping do not expect them to honor their price match claim.
The strimmer is just ideal for what I needed, I use it at my allotment for trimmer the paths it certainly makes my job easier and it also handy in my garden at home.
It works, does the job , that's all I ask for.
I was surprised by the power of this battery operated strimmer and impressed by it's easy to set up build. With the nylon cord automatically released to maintain a good strimming length the unit performed adequately for my needs, where no electric supply is available.
strimmer worked for 15 minutes on 1st charge, then 10 mins then 5mins - now nothing.
Battery shows red when placed in recharger but doesnt charge anymore.
Good machine relacement parts info a bit vague, I want to purchase a secnd spool what is the part number
last one lasted 2 years, new one doesn't have wheels or a storage hook. hope this one lasts!.
Stronger than I expected make sure it gets a full recharge and you should get good results.
I purchased one of these strimmers about a year ago and have been delighted with it. It is more powerful than I thought it would be and battery life exceeded expectations. Would recommend it to anyone looking to buy a cordless strimmer.
Price was good, delivery time was very fast.
However, some of the cordless grass strimmer's technical description points on the advertising WEB site differ from what is specified in the product's 'User Manual'.
For example, my main concern is:
1. WEB site specifies 5 hours battery pack charge time. Manual specifies 7 to 10 hours battery pack charge time, with a 10 hour first time charge (no problem with this first time charge time as it's usually the case with other products).
2. WEB site specifies 45 minutes to 1 hour use time following a battery pack charge, we could not find any reference to use time in the product's 'User Manual'.
Our actual experience was as follows:
1. On receipt of the strimmer I charged the battery pack for 10 hours. After about 15 minutes of lite use the strimmer slowed down and could hardly cut fine grass.
2. For a second time I charged the battery pack overnight for about 14 hours, again we experienced only about 15 minutes of useable run time.
We purchased the product for it's compact size, ideal for lite use for the borders of our caravan, but the ratios of actual battery pack charge times to actual use time as so far experienced, is not practical or viable for our use. We await testing results by Trueshopping - it may be a fault of some kind?
Yes bought this to strim around wife grave did`nt think it would be much good pleasantly supprised does the job also bought a spare battery so can use for well over i hour only down side batteries take 10 hours to charge but they last around 45 mins on a full charge for the price I think you would struggle to find a better product
