DeWalt Cordless String Trimmer and Blower
Powered by DeWalt’s 20v MAX batteries, these new outdoor tools make trimming and cleanup a breeze.
In this installment of Tool Tech, Patrick explains DeWalt’s relatively recent entry into outdoor power equipment. DeWalt’s cordless string trimmer runs off of their 20v battery pack like all the other cordless tools in their line. It’s pretty smooth in operation and is super convenient. Even more exciting is DeWalts cordless blower, handy for cleaning up around the job site. It works really well, and is a no-brainer if you’re already using the DeWalt 20v battery pack.
