Was different than the original but still could be fitted using longer mounting bolts. Worked like it should.

replacement battery for srtring trimmer
Posted by: LOU HERRICK from LEXINGTON, KY on 09/27/2014

I can't say anything good about this replacement. It came with 2 3/4" hex head screws and no instructions for their use; also, it didn't look like the picture (different shape. The battery I was replacing was about the same shape and dimensonsbut it was held in place by 2 2-3/4" bolts and a metal saddle. The new battery has a plastic hold down device that doesn't hold the battery down tight.I used the original 2-3/4" bolts but had to cut additional threads on them; even then, had to add washers under each bolt head and push a wood shim under the battery to hold it tight. Also, the bolts are at an angle (not perpendicular to the top of the machine. At this point, I can only say that the battery will start the trimmer - the installation sucks! Even had to remove the acrylics shield at front of unit to get the battery in place. Maybe I'll try mounting battery with the old metal strap -couldn't be any worse than what I've been through-I've spent about 3 hours on this "simple" battery replacement

Battery replacement errors

Looked at web site several times, ordered battery to fit my trimmer, I thought. Larger battery appeared to be good idea, but added height makes it difficult to mount. Battery cage does not fit either battery or trimmer, wired battery in place. Spec's. need to be clarified.

The battery is already weak and will not take a charge.

I bought the original replacement because I thought it would be worth the extra cost of the battery and the shipping. It only cranked my DR cart for a couple weeks, then was weakening. I had to begin pull starting it. I took it to be charged and after 3 hours on slow charge, it showed 'No good'. Now I need a new one.

It took several minutes to figure out how to install the new battery retaining clamp. No instructions were included with the new battery. Once I figured out how it was to be installed, the battery now works very well.

Q.How long of a charge does a freshly charged battery have and how long before I have to buy a new One?
A.How long a fully charged battery will last before requiring a charge will vary based on the machine it is used on. Most of our machines that use these batteries will charge the battery as the machine is used and therefore you should usually only have to charge your battery when you haven't used the machine in a couple months unless you do not run the machine long enough to restore the charge that was depleted from start up. The lifespan of any battery will vary based on how well the battery is maintained. With proper maintenance, these batteries should last roughly 3 - 5 years. For more information on this product, please contact our parts department toll free at 1-(888) 550-0062 Monday - Friday from 8:00am - 6:00pm Eastern and Saturday from 8:30am - 5:00pm. We will be happy to assist you and look forward to hearing from you.
