Review of Hart 20 Volt String Trimmer
I received this Hart 20 V Hybrid String Trimmer in return for my
honest review. With the telescoping handle in the fully extended position, the
trimmer to grass cutting level is approximately 48 “ long. The trimmer
with battery weighs 6.6 pounds. The Trimmer comes with one 20 Volt
2.0 Ah battery and a battery charger. The Trimmer/Edger can be used
with the battery or can be plugged into an electrical outlet. It can not
be used with a combination at the same time,either battery or Ac.
The string diameter is .065 and an extra spool of prewound line is
included and ready to be popped in. An extension cord is needed if
you intend to use the trimmer on Ac household current..A nice feature
is the built in power cord retainer the helps the plug to stay in place as
you trim or edge. When using the trimmer on Ac it has more power than
when it is used in the battery mode.
With a fully charged battery I got approximately 18 to 20 minutes of
continuous run time in tall wet grass.The recharging time for the2.0 Ah
battery was approximately one and one half hours.The trimmer has a
surprising amount of power in the battery mode and outstanding power
in the plug in mode. The single line as an auto feed feature that always
keeps the line at an optimal cutting length without having to bump the
trimmer head as with other string trimmers.
The edger feature can be accessed be turning knob on the handle.The
edger uses the same single string as the trimmer but now the cutter guard
is in the vertical position. In this configuration it can now do edging work
easily and safely.
Do the fact that the motor is located at the cutter end of the shaft the
trimmer works best on flat or on gentle ground, It becomes very tiring to
use on a steep bank that requires the trimmer to be used above waist
The auto string feature is nice but due to it always feeding new line into
the cutting housing, located on the cutter guard, it is a bit noisy on start up.
The trimmer head has a diameter of approximitaly twelve inches.
The Hart Hybrid Trimmer / Edger comes with a three year limited warranty
instruction booklet with tips and safety advice.
I would recommend it to anyone with a small to medium sized lawn and
believe it is a sound investment and good value.
