Toro Electric Trimmer/Edger
Electric trimmer with 12-inch cutting width for fast results. View larger

Toro 51487 Cordless 24-Volt Max* 12-Inch Trimmer/Edger

Toro Electric Trimmer/Edger
Converts to an edger in seconds.
View larger

Toro's powerful 24-volt max* cordless trimmer/edger provides high-performing features that make yard work feel like a walk in the park. It delivers consistent power for larger jobs when you need extended run time, and its 12-inch cutting width gets the job done quickly. There's no gas or oil to maintain, and at 8 pounds, it weighs a lot less than a gas trimmer. Even more, the unit runs quietly, which both you and your neighbors will appreciate.

Better yet, with no extension cord to get in the way, you can easily maneuver the trimmer down the driveway, up the front walk, along the side of the house, next to the fence line, and anywhere else that needs to be quickly and neatly trimmed. The unit also converts to an edger in a matter of seconds--simply push the button, and voila. A smooth-rolling wheel guides the edger for precise results.

Size Name: 24V String Verified Purchase
UPDATE:

I purchased this item for my neighbor who has been very happy with it. However, he told me he could not quite do both his front and back yard without having to charge the battery. This made no sense to me since I could do both the front and back of my yard twice before needing to recharge. True, his yard is slightly larger, but not that much larger!

We started comparing batteries and found that his is a 44.4 Watt hour battery and mine is a 88.8 watt hour battery! Mystery solved! While this new version is about the same price as the old version, they cut the battery size in half without lowering the price! You can purchase a larger battery for this (Toro 88504) but it is almost as much as the entire trimmer!

For the above reason, I have lowered the rating to a 4 star from a 5 star. While still a great trimmer, cutting the battery in half without stating that they did this seems wrong to me. Sort of like changing the size of food containers (smaller) and charging the same price while telling everyone that the price has not changed!!!

So, please be aware of this change in the product!!!!

*************************************

I ordered the predecessor to this model two years ago and it is still running strong and the battery pack still holds a VERY long charge!! If there were any negatives to this trimmer it would be that wet grass clumps around it. Big deal, let it dry and brush it away!

So, you are probably wondering why I would order a second one if I like my first one so much? To repay a neighbor for taking care of our lawn for us while I had surgery. Since the neighbor would not accept payment, I ordered this trimmer for him!

Size Name: 24V String Verified Purchase
After reading a multitude of reviews on both gas and battery operated string trimmers, I opted to go for the Toro 51487. I have never owned a gas string trimmer myself, but with the proliferation of ethanol in fuel and my lack of mechanical sense, I decided not to deal with rotting fuel lines and dirty carburetors.

This string trimmer has a surprisingly good amount of power behind it. It easily lasts around 40 - 60 minutes, depending on usage. On my .25 acre corner lot, I can complete all the random trimming around the house and edge almost all of the sidewalk on one charge; only the outer edge facing the street cannot be finished before the battery dies. The battery level indicator is present again on the 51487, I assume its the same battery as the one provided with the 51486. I do enjoy the pivoting head, in particular as it helps a lot with user fatigue if you have a lot of edging to take care of.

Construction wise, I have to agree with some of the other viewers, it does seem somewhat flimsy. The shaft is a medium weight aluminum but the majority of the rest is hard plastic. The parts I am mainly concerned about are the plastic wheel used for edging (optional) and the plastic button/switch that allows the head to pivot. Just make sure everything is tightened down and it should feel fairly solid.

Overall, I'm satisfied with the product. I certainly enjoy how light the unit is and the lack of exhaust fumes, only time will tell about the longevity of the product (but the 7 year retail consumer warranty is confidence inspiring).

Size Name: 24V Hedge Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
First, when you get this trimmer you notice how big it is. It is huge. I didn't release how long the 24" blade would be. However, that is what makes this trimmer great. I have little bushes in front of my house and the length of the blade made it easy to get nice smooth edges and cuts on the bushes in one swoop.

The swivel blade is also a great feature. It makes getting at different parts of the bush easier.

However, the best part is the cordless feature. No cord to get in the way. Plus, it is a removable battery which is even better. No need to keep this big trimmer plugged in and out where a child could get to it. Just keep the battery charged.

The battery itself drained about 25% in the first 45-60 miniutes of use.

While the battery and recharge feature is great it does not have the power of a corded trimmer. This makes it quieter, but it also cannot cut certain branches quickly or sat all.

Overall, this is great and i love it- even with the few issues mentioned.

Surprisingly powerful. I expected the charge not to last as long as it did. Very easy to use and efficient. Satisfied with the purchase.

Size Name: 24V Hedge Verified Purchase
I also have the 24Vmax Toro Line Trimmer, so this one can share the bigger extended run-time battery from my 24Vmax Line Trimmer, but not vice versa per Toro's recommendations. When pushed hard, such as trimming back six inches of highly overgrown junipers where I encountered very dense old growth (I probably should have used loppers instead), I noticed that some of the cuts were splintered and not very clean, which required touch-up with a hand pruner. The Toro stalled a few times when the growth was just too dense (i remember the corded Hedgehog doing the same thing with similar dense overgrowth). 1/2" branches are no problem when encountered in normal grooming / weekly maintenance-- power is similar to my corded B&D hedgehog HH2450, but the rotating handle is much more confortable when trimming the sides of hedges.

Dual-action (two blades moving in opposite directions simultaneously) means less vibration than single-action models.

My biggest complaint is that the design has a large protrution on the bottom below the second handle (about a 2-inch offset), so the blade cannot sit pefectly flush and parallel to the plants while cutting-- tip has to be angling into the plant a bit, making large smooth cuts on very tall or very deep hedges more difficult. My first B&D corded unit before the current HedgeHog had only about 1/2" offset-- I miss that low-offset in this unit, but the cordless freedom is a definite plus.

Battery life, even with the smaller stock 2amp-hour (44.4 WH per label) is pretty good. For reference, the line trimmer includes the bigger extended run-time battery with 88.8WattHours (or 4 AmpHour) capacity.
