I had a DR Trimmer for about 20 years and it still works but the wheels were coming off and there were some other frame issues and I decided to get a new one. It was easy to set up right out of the box and simple to use. I like the improvements over the older one I had. I've used it once and it works great. Thanks

I bought this trimmer/mower to trim under trees and it performs very well. Previously I used a hand-held trimmer which was very difficult with all of the bending to get under the trees. This trimmer makes keeping the area clean under the trees with little to no bending and does a fabulous job. In addition, my hand-held trimmer generally covered me with the clippings. This trimmer does a great job in keeping the clippings off of you.

I was totally amazed when I got my trimmer and started to use it on swamp grass that has not been cut down for years. This is in the spring and grass is dried ot it cut everything down to the ground and basically chopped it up. So far I am very happy with the trimmer. The 7.25 has plenty of power in this thick tangled swamp grass

I had the 8.25 Pro XL model, with the 16" wheels it was terrific in getting around my hilly terrain, and it cut excellent. However, the bottom of trimmer is open so all the weed debri created a mess and it was very labor intensive to clean. Sorry, but I had to send it back. I also wanted a oil drain plug which it had but it was totally sealed, it was unusable as a drain plug. Hope they fix those issues. If you need an oil pump then they should include it. thank you, JLO

Posted by: FRANK H. from CHOCTAW, OK on 10/08/2014
Rating:
This is my 3rd DR Trimmer I have used them for the last 25 years my first 2 had the tilt head left or right great feature my new one doesn’t. My new one came with 16 in wheels good for maneuverability but put the cutting head at an angle scalping the grass no mater the string setting. DR did send me 14 in. wheels correcting his problem. Now for the cutting head I feel is the worst designed one to date, I’m guessing one of the bean counters designed it, it is very hard to load and remove the cutting cord also you waste 7 inches of cord every time you load it. They do have different cutting head but they want $59.00 for it appears to be easy to load but only one cutting height. The only thing else I can say after over 25 yrs of ownership is if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.

I get my DR Trimmer Pro last month. I have to clean 2½ miles of ditches full of tough weeds, bulrush and very strong big ferns. This machine is very power full, I can mulch all these tough plants at a very good speed and the light weight of the trimmer allowed me to do a back and foard movement to do a perfect clean up. The blue string last for a very long time, I di not even broke one, just slowly get short. The Briggs & Stratton start at the first or second stroke all the time, I am very please with this trimmer. I strongly recommend it. The order and customer service persons where very pleasant and helpful. I think the DR company should install an under cover on the push model like the self propelled one, the inside of unit is getting full of debris and some can get stocked in the belt.

DR MOWER opinion
Posted by: KATHY O. from TOK, AK on 09/18/2014
Rating:
Hello..this is my 2nd DR Mower. I had purchased one while living in VA but had to leave it behind. It wasn't hardly used!! :( I was so sad to leave it behind but had no choice. I moved back to Alaska to my home I had left behind and the weeds had taken over and it was bad looking. I had two lawn mowers people gave me but they couldn't do the weed cutting and both died. I had no other way to cut my badly overgrown yard. I couldn't afford to pay anyone , rent anything or buy a new unit. I didn't know what to do. I was so depressed. So I called up DR Mower and talked to Lisa , who by the way was VERY nice and found out there was an option to do a payment plan!!! I was approved for a card and was able to do the Payment plan for $27 a month which was very doable for me on my limited income! I received the Dr Mower in just a week or so and I used it and love it and am excited to go out shortly to continue cutting my weeds down!! Thank you! Respectfully, Kathy Olding Tok, Alaska Please give Lisa a raise!! she deserves it!

We had about 4 ft high of grass and it really didn't work like I wanted it to, plus you have to keep the front up.

Great machine! Wacks down thick tall grass and weeds easily and even small brush which is what I needed, I have 4 acres, With all the rains this year everything grew like crazy so I now have something that can keep up with it, I recommend the blue string, it lasts longer and holds up much better. My DR always starts on the first pull, hot or cold, Check your oil every time. keep it clean and it will last you for a long long time. I rate it 5 star.

I am very pleased with this trimmer started on the second pull and the first pull on every start up afterwards. The cutting is outstanding went through everything I through at it with ease. Installing the trimmer line is simple and very easy. Keep a pair of needle nose pliers with you and a flat head screwdriver this will help you a lot. Watch the video that is online on YouTube it is very helpful on in stalling the trimmer line. The trimmer arrived at my front door and it was packed very solidly. I will in the future get a trimmer that is self propelled, I have a lot of uneven ground to navigate here. If you want a quality product, this is the one to put your hard earned dollars in to, don't waste your money no something less expensive, trust me this is the trimmer you are looking for!

DR 7.25 Trimmer/Mower
Posted by: Jim O. from CLARKSTON, MI on 07/28/2014
Rating:
Replaced our hard working 12 year old DR Trimmers with the new 7.25 Pro DR Trimmer/mower. Was very impressed with how light the new trimmers are. However, I was not impressed with a wheel that came apart at the hub with the first use. Quickly replaced! A design flaw IMO is the fuel/power cable. It is exposed in front of the motor and sometimes brushed by limbs and tall weeds. The old trimmer cable was not exposed.

There are a number of choices when it comes to trimmer/mowers and it’s tempting to opt for one of the cheaper makes. I decided on DR because of their reputation for producing heavy duty equipment. I’ve not been disappointed. I have about a mile of high-tensile wire fencing which was heavily overgrown with grass, weeds, brambles, etc. The DR made light work of it and the fence line now looks better than it has done for years. Thank you. My only regret is that I didn’t get the self-propelled trimmer.

The DR Trimmer Mower 7.25 engine is the best mower you can buy. I cut high grass, weeds that were over my head well over 5 feet high and also cut sticks with the thicker cord .175 the blue cord. It Starts very easy, you can put it on to the choke position then move to start after pulling cord if needed or leave on start and have other control in the rabbit position. it is well worth the price it cost.

We just recently received our trimmer/mower and have been using the heck out of it!

I also took it to the farm where i board my horse and cleared up a lot of over grown grass and weeds around the tack/wash area. The owner is an elderly lady and has little help so we all do what we can. This made the job a breeze! Thanks so much!

I used my new trimmer this morning and am really pleased with its performance. In heavy weeds and grass it just keeps cutting right along. There is an area that has some rocks, I just power back so that the rocks are not thrown, and the trimmer still cuts the grass just fine. I bought my first Dr. trimmer, I believe in 1997, and it is still working fine, but this new trimmer is so far advanced that it is just what I needed.

Powerful Trimmer, Starts everytime on one pull!
Posted by: Jim51 from Colorado on 08/06/2013

I chose the DR trimmer based on previous customer reviews and I was not disappointed. This model came fully assembled, I only had to set the handle at the appropriate angle, install the cord and add oil and gas. The trimmer has sufficient power to cut dense grass and weeds without bogging down or clogging. Although only having owning it for a couple weeks, I have trimmed along more than a mile of fence and irrigation pipe, most of which had not been trimmed for over 3 months. The trimmer handled the extensive growth with ease. I also ordered the Durablade kit for thicker weeds and the Trimsafe Guard. I highly recommend getting both of these. Although you can operate the trimmer close to fence and structures even with the 175 mil cord, the Trimsafe Guard makes it a lot quicker. The Durablade is a must for thicker weeds. The instruction manual for maintaining the trimmer is top notch!

I purchased this trimmer to replace a 2005 DR that was showing signs of tiring. This one is a step up in performance and price and the superior power is welcome in the heavy grass we have this year in central Montana. Yet, the machine is still comfortably maneuverable in the rough terrain that I mow. The Subaru motor starts easily, just like the older Briggs & Stratton, which is much appreciated.

I liked the fuel shutoff valve so I could run out the carburetor without having to runout the whole remaining tank of gas.

Product is a good design and is well made
Posted by: Ken65 from West Virginia on 07/31/2013

I have several acres of property & lots of trimming along fence lines, ditches trees etc. I have been using this machine for two weeks now and it appears to be well-made & designed with the power to handle the heavy-duty weed trimming I do. Lots easier than using a hand-held trimmer. The Subaru engine starts with one easy pull on the rope & runs great. One caution about engine selection if you purchase a DR trimmer...make sure there is a factory authorized service center close by for whatever brand of engine you buy. My Subaru arrived with a defective carburetor gasket & the closest service center was 75 miles away. DR took care of the problem, but I had to make two 150-mile round trips to get the engine serviced under warranty. My greatest concern with this machine at this time is how long the resin wheels will last.

Received DR Trimmer in the box and the instructions and assembly were straight forward and fast. Had it running within 1/2 hour. It is much more substantial than my heavy Stihl weed eater requiring less string change. It would be a much better product if the cutting swath was offset to the left about 3-4 inches. When traveling down a fence line I am continually getting the wheels jammed against the fence. For open, thick grass and weeds - it is awesome!

my second DR trimmer mower, works well: electronic starting is welcome after years cranking the older model; so far one drawnback (about which I called trouble-shooters at DR who gave me prompt helpful advice) is that the machine doesn't stop when the throttle is put to off. To stop the machine I have to manaully depress the armature. Perhaps this will improve with use.

Love my DR Mower! This is the 2nd one - although the first was "worked to death" before I finally laid it to rest. Great improvements to the new model (since the last one purchase in early 2000)! Makes quick work of the acres of fence lines I have to clear!

We have seven acres we only mow about a halve acre lot, so there are a lot of areas which become overgrown, without this equipment it becomes nearly impossible to walk around. i ahve tried a lot of other weeed eaters riding mowers and push mowers but this weedeater with the beaver blade is the only way to acces it effeciantly.

Great piece of equipment

Easy to use, has great power and easy to start. Makes short order of the bigger weeds in our pasture. After using a Sprint model for 7 years, I find the front of this model to be a bit light and therefore the mow ball was hard to feel for me. Otherwise this machine has performed well above of what we expected from it. It is our third piece of DR machinery.

I now have over three hours of use of this product and overall I am very pleased with it. The customer support has been good and the product shipped and was delivered on schedule. It was also very well packed using strong double wall boxes. I particularly like the Subaru engine. I did purchase an hour meter with the product and one issue I had is that there is no place to mount the hour meter. I had to resort to a hose clamp on the handle. Although it does work, it is not very durable it that position. The other issue I have is that when using the trimmer, I have to walk very, very slowly or else the trim line will break every 10 feet or so. This makes it very time consuming. Again I am pleased with the product overall and would recommend it to others.

Many years ago I had a DR string trimmer, but, with the old unit, long grass had a tendency to tangle around the mower's shaft. What a pleasant surprise this new trimmer is! I've now used the new unit three different times. It has taken down some pretty tall grass with no tangling whatsoever! I've continued to use it with just the green, lightest-weight line, and I've also cut some large areas of tall, heavy weeds. The line isn't even frayed! The Subaru engine has lots of power, and it is reasonably easy to start with its manual rope-pull starter. Moreover, using this DR trimmer on wheels is much easier on my arm muscles than holding and trying to control a hand-held trimmer. I appreciate that its engine will continue to run when the line is not spinning. This DR trimmer will get lots of use around our two-acre property.

The DR Trimmer is superior to regular shaft type string trimmers. The cord is much longer lasting and durable, it easily wheels into the area needing trimmed without all the stretching and strain on the operator's back, and does not throw as much clippings back on the operator.

My DR Trimmer came assembled, all I had to do is unfold the handle. We got the Subaru 7.52, which has plenty of power and is relatively quiet for this type of machine. It starts on the 1st or 2nd pull most everytime. I was impressed with the accessory pkgs that were available.

Great Product So Far
Posted by: polymers from Mississippi on 07/10/2013
Rating:
So far so good. I have only used the nylon trim line with the unit and have not tried the Durablade or Beaverblade. (I hope to use those in the near future). I am extremely impressed with how well this thing works. It cuts through stuff that would kill a lawn mower. The Subaru engine is awesome.. starts every time with a single pull. I have only had two negative thoughts about the unit since I ordered it. 1. DR takes quite a while to get the unit to you. I should have picked one up locally as the unit from the website took a while to get to me. When I placed the order I was told it would be 3-5 business days (plus shipping this is 6 - 8 business days) but was later told 5 -7 business days after calling to check on my order. With shipping, this is 8 - 10 business days. That's two weeks total after placing the order. The good news here is that DR didn't charge my card til the unit shipped. So, order the unit before you need it. :) 2. The trimmer line melts onto the mowball and can be difficult to remove. If you have a lot of work to do, I recommend carrying around a flat head screwdriver and needlenose pliers. Other than these two items, this unit is excellent. While I don't know how the unit will holdup over time, I am familiar with Subaru / Robin engines and have had great service from them. So far I have no problem with strongly recommending this product.

After 20 minutes of running my brand new trimmer I noticed something leaking from the engine. I shut it off and found it was leaking gas. I believe its coming from the gasket between the carboretor and the engine itself. So I guess so far its a poor machine. I will have to update after I talk with DR about getting it back to them. My dad has a comparable machine he bought 10 years ago and actually came over to finish the job I started. We started comparing the machines and found like everything else in life the quality has gone down hill over the years. Hopefully customer service is still what it was....

Good machine, but trimming cords break easily.
Posted by: Phil17 from Illinois on 06/24/2013

I previously owned an electric start Pro Trimmer that I purchased 10-12 years ago. This model is essentially the same except that it does not have an electric start. The new engine is harder to manually start than my previous one, too hard for my wife to start it. I wish that I had purchased one with an electric start. With my previous trimmer, the trimming cords frayed after heavy use and almost never broke off of the hub, providing long life. With this trimmer, the trimming cords break off at the hub after only mowing with it for 10-15 minutes. This happens both with green and blue cords. It greatly reduces the usefulness of the trimmer due to the frequent stops to change cords and the cost of the cords. The cords break quickly whether or not they are soaked in water for several days first.

I have a lot of acreage and have been very pleased with the DR,s easy use and power to do even the the tougher jobs around the property. Just yesterday, I used it in a ditch with heavy grass,thick small brush,and cacktails, and it did the job with ease. Even around our pond, it took down the tall grass around the edges through some water. Happy customer so far.

I have had my DR Trimmer for less than 2 months and found it to be very beneficial mowing around rows of trees and around the creek I have on my 10 acre plot. I expect to use it a lot more over the next several months. I finally got my backordered blade which I have not had time to install and use. I have high expectations for this machine. I do wish it had a pressurized engine like the one on my field and brush mower as I do have to mow on lots of hills.

When we first received the trimmer, my husband tried it and he broke four sets of trimmer chords, he was pretty frustrated. Don't know what the problem was, so then I tried it on weeds and high grass taller than I am, and it cut perfectly. I cut so much that my chord has worn down to barely nothing ( and it's still cutting) (I'm using the green chord). I just LOVE this trimmer, it does the job and works great. The only things I found wrong is; when I shut it off, it stays on, I have to push the thing on the side to shut it down completely, minor adjustment needed. I wish I had gotten the self propelled....I.m getting too old for all this work. And, would like a bigger gas tank so I can mow even longer!!!! My dad had one of these years ago and I remember using it and it was a great product then and they still are today!!!

At 66, I was tiring of roaming three acres of hilly yard with a hard-to-start hand held gas trimmer. We have many boulders and trees to trim around. The Subaru motor starts first pull every time. I use the blue, heavy line and it lasts through several days of trimming thick weeds. The machine never tangles. I could not be more pleased!

Q.DOES THE ENGINE CHARGE THE BATTERY WHEN RUNNING, OR DO YOU HAVE TO USE AN EXTERNALLY CHARGER?
A.When using your electric starting trimmer mower, the trimmer engine must be operated for at least 45 minutes to maintain a proper battery charge. If the battery loses its charge, you'll need to use a trickle charger to recharge it. The charger should have an output of 12 volts at no more than 2 amps.

Q.Is this a self propelled machine?
A.The TR4 7.25 Pro Trimmer Mower does not feature the self-propelled drive assembly. The 16" resin spoke wheels make this model an ideal choice for customers who need to trim on or off the lawn where conditions could be a little rough. The larger wheels make it more maneuverable for mowing on slopes and along ditches.

The TR4 8.26 Pro-XL Trimmer Mower offers the self-propelled mechanism with variable speeds from 0 to 3 mph. Just choose the speed that best fits your pace and mowing conditions.
