Overview

The DR Trimmer Mower is much easier to control than a handheld trimmer, but its extra power can cause damage in sensitive areas around trees, garden borders, against wooden siding or fence posts.

The TrimSafe Guard attachment will prevent accidental girdling of trees or any other unintended damage without slowing you down. The tips of a full length cord are inset 1" from the outer bar. Once the mounting plate has been installed on the DR Trimmer Mower, the tree guard goes on and off using two pins, which takes less than a few minutes. Mounting bolts and pins included.

PLEASE NOTE: Not for Use with Pilot Model. TrimSafe Guard #32186 is for current style DR Trimmer Mowers sold after February 2013, and current style Self-Propelled DR Trimmer Mowers sold after May 2013 (serial #156200 – above).

For DR Trimmer Mowers manufactured from 2001 to February 2013 and Self-Propelled DR Trimmer Mowers manufactured from 2001 to May 2013 see TrimSafe Guard #24060. Please call us toll-free 1-800-687-6575 if you have questions.

Rating: Product Review Stars: 4.00 star rating
This was super easy to install and works great. I trimmed along fences and trees and am thrilled with the clean looking results. The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is because since you have to take the fan-shaped “cover” off you get pummeled with debris as you mow. They need to design a cover for this attachment that rests on top to help with that situation. Definitely wear long pants and sleeves and wrap around eye protection. I literally had grass in my teeth after using this.

The trim guard does a nice job of keeping your cord away from trees, buildings, and fenceline. When your cord is still full-length the distance is the perfect balance between getting a close cut without any damage to the object nearby.

Effective way to prevent girdling.
Posted by: Robert S. from Maurice, LA on 06/21/2017
Rating: Product Review Stars: 5.00 star rating
Very effective in preventing girdling. Easy to install. Love it. Feel much more comfortable when my grandson works around the trees. Does add a bit of weight to the front of the machine causing it to dig in a bit if one is not careful. I also installed the blade break for the Beaver Blade at the same time (also adding to the weight out front). Thinking of some way to maybe installing a bit of a counter weight on the handle.

Protecting .my trees and fence.
Posted by: Richard B. from CASTROVILLE, TX on 09/06/2016
Rating: Product Review Stars: 5.00 star rating
I have 5 acres with a road on 2 sides of the property. The entire property has a fence. I like to keep the fence row clean of all shrubs, grass and weeds that can lift up the fence and pull up the posts. I also have over 100 trees and shrubs throughout the property and I like to keep them trimmed and looking nice. The tree guard helps take the worry out of damaging the trees or fence. It makes the job much easier and faster too! It's a great investment.

So Far, So Good.
Posted by: K. R. E. from POST, TX on 06/28/2016
Rating: Product Review Stars: 5.00 star rating
I've only had the trimmer a short time and have used it about 4 hours. I'm pleased with the way it starts. (I got the electric start model and am glad that I did.) I am surprised how well it handles big tall weeds and grass without getting tangled up and bogging down. It is a simple belt driven design that so far is working very well. A strong grip is required to insert the string in the standard trimmer head. If the user does not have a good strong grip with their hands, then the up-graded trimmer head would probably be worth the money.

Great piece of equipment, we have 39 acres and are slowly cleaning this property up and this trimmer has been great for cleaning up the areas first and then we can keep it mowed, we have some areas that are too rocky to mow and the hand held trimmers wear you out and the rocks eat the sting like crazy, this trimmer gets into these areas with ease and the 0.175" string lasts a long time. We love it.

Unit is well built. Unit can eliminate weeds great. Improvements that need addressed. Threw two drive belts in first 6 hours. Little rough to handle for the wife. Never use the self propel around trees. Easier to rock back and forth. May go to an air tire to see if it would be easier to maneuver. Just bought the Trimsafe Guard for the wife -- works great - tree bark is happy also.

The DR Trimmer Mower exceeds my expectations. i'm an old feller and got to the point I couldn't use my regular trimmer for more than a few minutes without stopping to rest and it was too hard on my back. This trimmer is so easy to use I did my entire yard (1-3/4 acres) in about one hour and was not exhausted. I couldn't believe it. It was easy to set up and started on 2nd pull. Really worth the price.

The ease of trimming on the farm is our biggest use. It makes keeping the fence lines cleared and helps keep the new bushes from coming up in the pastures. It is a really big help to our ancient users.

I received it--opened it--and returned it. If you want a Weber 20 lb. grill on the front your trimmer and in your way you can have the one I returned to DR.
Response from DR SupportWe’re sorry that the Trim Safe Guard didn’t work out for you. We do appreciate you posting about it though! We will pass your comments to our Product Development department for review.

Beautifully engineered so the device can be attached and removed with ease and without the need for tools. Allows for trimming right up to trees, solid structures and even "tender" shrubbery and plantings without risk of damage to vegetation or to strings.

A must for around bluberry bushs

When I showed my wife the DR trimmer brochure, she thought we needed the treesafe kit, as I had cut some of her blueberry bushes off with my hand held string trimmer. This kit allows me to cut close to the plants without harming them.

Runs great right out of the box

Excited to get my second 8.26 self propelled trimmer. Ran perfect right out of the box. Definitely recommend the tree guard attachment easy on and easy off makes it a great add on. I also bought the Beaver Blade and Dura Blade kits. Dura Blades are great for heavier brush, have not yet used the Beaver Blade, but expect it to really do some damage to unwanted saplings.

Needs a shield to contain clippings
Posted by: Nick1000 from Texas on 07/02/2013

Easy to install, heavy duty. I constructed a shield of aluminum sheet to cover the guard to block the clippings from hitting my face.

Product would be easier to use if it was made from aluminum vs. the heavy steel. Would not need to be painted, therefore not show scrape marks.

Save Time, Hassles and your Lattice
Posted by: TheLatticeKillah from Massachusetts on 06/28/2013
Rating: Product Review Stars: 5.00 star rating
I bought the guard due to my never ending need to trim extremely close to our home including areas near the deck with lattice. Prior to owning the DR Trimmer/Mower I used to use a handheld trimmer which I had to replace the lattice on a couple of occasions due to me getting too close. With this attachment I can zip right next to the areas where I need to get quickly and without worry. I won't ever have the fear of getting too close again. Thank You DR!

Tough to install, but does a good job

Installation took a lot of effort. It's hard to access and work under the machine unless it is on a work table. Once the mounting adapter is installed, the routine installation and removal is easy, though.

Simply outstanding

The Treesafe kit provides great protection for the vegetation that is highly susceptible to the cutting power of the DR. Trimmer. It allows for rapid and safe trimming, while at the same time it protects the life of the mil cord. Without the Treesafe kit, the cord can become quickly frayed, thereby, reducing it effectiveness. Trimming is faster and more efficient with this kit.

Absolutely necessary when trimming around trees and bushes.

I did not know there was a tree-guard when I ordered my first DR Trimmer 12 years ago. (Must not have been available then) When I ordered my new DRTrimmer last month, the new catalog showed the availability of this product. Therefore, I decided to order one and try it as I have recently planted a lot of small trees and bushes in my yard. This accessory has proven its worth many times over already in the short period of time since I received it. I don't ever plan to be without one again!!! It works great and sure helps me with my yard work.

This meets all of our expectations in the job it does. We would only ask that the variable speed and throttle controls be easier to adjust. Even said, it is a great tool, and the power drive makes hills manageable.
