Tough Stuff
Posted by: Jerry P. from RITZVILLE, WA on 06/16/2016
Rating:
This is very tough stuff. I mowed over one acre of three foot high weeds and didn't see any noticeable wear. It is a little stiff to insert in the head though. I resolved this problem by loosening the head and separating the plates to insert the string. The instructions say to soak the string for three days. I couldn't wait, I wanted to get mowing. I would recommend for tough weeds but a lighter string would probably be sufficient for normal shorter weeds.

not as durable as I would have hoped for
Posted by: Bob M. from Lancaster, VA on 10/13/2015
Rating:
I used the green cord that came with the trimmer, and it wore down the more I used it, then I switched to the blue since its supposed to be more for rugged trimming. The blue just breaks off. it doesn't seem to wear out it just breaks. I'm cutting the same grass, so it just doesn't make sense. Any suggestions?
Response from DR SupportThank you for providing feedback on the cutting cord for your DR® Trimmer Mower. Both the green and blue cutting cord are the heaviest that we offer. The blue with its spiral shape offers that extra knife like action because of the sharp edges that the spiral creates. It’s great to use on your heavier vegetation. Over time both the green and blue do eventually wear down. You mention cutting the same grass type with both – is there any chance you have a foundation, stone wall etc that may be contributing to the breakage you are referring to? Or could there be large rocks that are within the vegetation that you’re cutting? Just to have the cord break is very unusual. We are happy to discuss with you further your concerns and may at the same time be able to offer some suggestions. Please give us a call at 1-800-376-9637 and someone in our Tech Support Department would be happy to speak with you. Thank you for your business and for choosing DR® Power; your satisfaction is important to us. We hope to hear from you soon.

Price versus quality is too high.
Posted by: Woody Lambert from Sorrento, LA on 09/30/2015
Rating:
I am very disappointed with how frail the cord is, I expected something much more durable for the price. Value versus price is the reason for the low rating. The 80' roll allows me to change the cord 20 times. This will not last a single season in the south. And, of course, the high price of the disposable part makes the machine worth a lot less than I paid for it.
Response from DR SupportThank you for your feedback on the blue cutting cord for your DR Trimmer. You don't mention what you are trimming/cutting and if the material is more woody and something thicker than a pencil you may find that the cord does wear out sooner. We would suggest a beaver blade in those conditions. We appreciate and thank you for your business.

When I ordered a Pro XL 8.26 I also ordered a Beaver Blade and a roll of 175-mil Cord. The Trimmer came with a starter assortment of Cord. Since I have heavy vegetation along my Lakeshore I installed the 175-mil Cord to begin with. I have mowed over 1200 ft. of shoreline TWICE and have yet to need to replace the originally installed Cord. It is still its' original length and going strong.I guess that means I am very happy with it. Oh yea, the Beaver Blade works GREAT, too.

Don't last
Response from DR SupportThanks for providing feedback on the cutting cord for your DR® Trimmer Mower. We are surprised about your comment relating to the blue cutting cord. It’s a customer favorite, cutting through just about any vegetation as well as lasting a good long while. A couple of suggestions we’ve found helpful over the years are: 1. Soak your cutting cord for a bit in a bucket of water. The material that it’s made from responds well to hydration and you may find that this helps to extend its life 2. If you have a lot of area that the cutting cord comes up against; stone walls, cement foundations, trees, etc. it may be a simple case of it wearing down because of that constant contact. We do make the Trim Safe Guard which helps to keep the nose of your machine (as well as the cutting cord) further out from those harder points of contact. Hopefully these two suggestions will help you to feel better about the cutting cord. Thank you again for your feedback and for choosing DR® Power. We appreciate your business!

I LOVE my walk behind trimmer! I have owned 3 other brands of walk behind, they did not hold up. So I spent the money and bought the DR. Love it! The cord is great, get a lot of mileage out of them. Ordered the new orange cord, can't wait to try it around my pond. I use the blue cord all over my 40 acre farm, then switch over to beaver blade for small tree and bushes. Hoping this new orange cord will take care of growth too tough for blue cord, but not quit ready for the beaver blade. Also I bought the quick lock, I think I need to clean it. Have to take completely apart to change cord, but it holds the cord tight , doesn't slip! So I love it! I am very happy with my purchase , just hate waiting for delivery of parts . Would like to jump in truck and retrieve parts same day. I will put up with the wait, cause its worth it!

Response from DR SupportThanks for providing feedback on the Blue Cutting Cord. We find that soaking the cord in warm water for a bit of time can help to prevent it from breaking up too soon. When used up against foundations, stone walls, fence posts, etc. you will find that it breaks off quicker. We appreciate your business and thank you for choosing DR Power.

The cord does cut the weds very well, however, it does have a tendency to leave the trimmer before full use. not sure if it is the trimmer or the cord itself. My feeling is that it is the way the cord is installed in the trimmer. use loosens the cord from the trimmer.

I really don't feel that I am qualified to judge the cord because I can't keep the machine running long enough to compare it to something else. I have had the trimmer for about 3 weeks now and have ran it for about 3 hours because of belt problems. I ordered another one yesterday and was told it takes 5 days to ship it to S. Carolina from Vermont, unbelievable! I expect to receive it om Monday the 15th of June hopefully this will work better than the last onr.

I've been using the green cord for over a year now and thought it worked well until. I thought about 150mil and the 175mil. I ordered the blue 175mil cord and saw the different for myself. Without question the blue 175mil cord stands alone. I've not measured how much of the green I've used to do my yard but it was a lot and since I've used the blue I only have to add the cord one time. Like I said I didn't measure but would think I used about 10 feet of green cord to trim my yard now only used maybe 4 feet to do the same. Thank you Dr.Power

I really like this "Blue Line". Am quite surprised how long it lasts while trimming along under a power line right of way which is thistle, wild sunflower, and a host of tall grasses. With the Premier 6.25 I set the cutting height higher and then went back setting the line lower with new line. I never asked the machine or line to do something neither were designed to do. I trimmed up 900 feet of right of way for the first time and did not have any premature line breakage. Good stuff. I did have cut pieces of blue line off the roll in a plastic bag with wet paper towels for a couple days before using the line. The machine was tilted up to attack the longer growth then rolled backward to get a clean cut. It took a couple days to get the job done, but now the right of way will be easier to maintain.

On the one time the cord remained installed, one end of the cord broke off at the head. So I won't be buy this again and don't recommend that other others do.

Started on the first pull! Eats the weeds like there is no tomorrow. My third DR Trimmer Mower. Had the first one about 10 years and left it with the house when sold. Inherited the second one, which was older, yet. Sold it to a friend and ordered the new one. Works great and is easy on my back.

The Blue Cord is The Best!
Posted by: SB S. from Canal Fulton, OH on 07/07/2014

I went right for the .175 (blue cord) when my DR Trimmer/Mower arrived. I was very impressed how it wiped down my very tall, some as high as 5 foot, over grown ditches and wet/marshy field grasses that were on my property. I was amazed how long the cord lasted! Never would a hand-held string trimmer lasted this long. I used the same blue cords for about 4 hours of trimming. Highly recommend. My DR came with some samples of the green .155-mil too, but I am so pleased with the slightly thicker blue cord, I am sticking with it for all my trimming.

I bought this cord to use on my DR Sprint to clean out around a couple of deer stands. End of summer weeds and briars had taken over. But, this cord was simply amazing. I put on two new cords and mowed everything. A hand held weedeater was powerless. The DR trimmer with the blue cord made clippings out of everything.

Better than home center stuff but not perfect
Posted by: Ford4000 from New York on 08/05/2013
Rating:
Having used both the blue and green cords I can safely say that the green cord is much more durable but noisier then the blue. I wish it lasted longer. The blue cord breaks real fast if you hit any solid objects at full throttle. Where the green cord abrades away at the ends this snaps off. For grass cutting it's fine but marginal for anything heavier. I tried 170 mil square Gatorline and while it is difficult to install it is incredibly durable and cuts stuff that the 155 line would just gnaw at.

I also purchase the "cord caddie", it is very helpful to have this attached to the trimmer....no going back to garage to get cor. However, I do not understand why the caddie is less than the 25" long and therefore the cover does not fit!!! Is there a logical answer to this manufactering error!!!

Recently I purchased a (24) pack of precut , blue 175mil cords to use with my new TR4 6.5 Trimmer Mower. Wow, can these things get the job done! Imagine if you would... living beside both, a creek which over the years has become overgrown , a dumping ground for pieces of concrete block, bricks, aluminum cans, slag from a long closed coal mine and an open ditch that the local township road maintenance crew overlooks due to outdated political tradition. These last and last. I am used to much cheaper and weaker trimmer line and expect to install new after each use. But that is not necessary!! Great stuff!! I work them hard and did not expect such outstanding performance. But, to be honest, I know that I have purchased the best around and you should too!

Best cord for use with the DR, especially when cutting tall weeds and grass.
Posted by: John2000 from California on 06/21/2013

Really a fantastic product to use with the DR. The most economical way is to use the rolls of the .175", Blue cord. I only use the Blue cord in my DR, However with the new line plates, it is necessary to soak the line in water prior to use or it is difficult to move into the slot above the entry level of the cord.

I just love the pre- cut green cord that came with my trimmer mower I purchased last month. I used the mower today to cut 18 in. grass and the one cord cut a 30x 20 ft. area without any obvious use of the string cord. I've been using a kombi stihl until now, and I would have had to re-string the stihl for that size lot. I then cleared some pretty thick brambleberry vines! and that green cord zipped right through them! I coudn't believe that it would cut those vines, with cord left over. I look forward to using the blue cord tomorrow for a small grove of vines, I'm sure the mower will zoom right through them.

I have had my new trimmer for a couple of months and have almost gone thru a whole reel of the 175 cord. I have not used it on real big stuff just normal weeds and very small brushy bushes. I have soaked it, as recommended and I cannot get any life out of it. Maybe it's just me. I have bought the 155 cord after market and it holds up much better, I don't have to replace as often on the same type of weeds. I'M JUST SAYIN.... I was tryin to review the 80' roll, Finger adjustment...
