The Struggle is Over!

Our lightest model, the PILOT is ideal for light-to-moderate conditions. At just 55 lbs. it is the lightest Trimmer Mower on the market and is super-easy to maneuver. But the PILOT doesn't lack for muscle, and is guaranteed to dramatically outperform any handheld trimmer you can find.

An offset frame design allows the PILOT model to trim right up against foundations, fence lines and other obstacles with precise control. And with its low profile, you can easily reach underneath shrubs or fence stiles to clear out low growth.

We recommend the PILOT for continuous trimming and mowing (releasing the bail bar stops the engine). If you want the ability stop the trimmer head from spinning without shutting the engine down, step up to a PREMIER, PRO, or PRO XL.


DR Premier Trimmer Mower parts and accessories
Features
Trimmer line for a DR walk-behind string trimmer

Super-duty Cutting Cords

All DR Trimmer/Mowers accept super-thick 175 mil cutting cords—the thickest, longest-lasting in the industry (so you spend more time mowing and less time changing cords).

Patented cord attachment system on a DR walk-behind string trimmer

Patented Cord Attachment System

Attach new cords in seconds, without tools! Choose from one of five cutting heights (1.5" to 3.5") when you attach new cords. And the DR wide-body design prevents vegetation from wrapping and tangling around the trimmer head, even in tall grass.

OHV Engine

DR OHV Engine

This powerful DR engine produces 7.0 ft-lbs of torque and delivers over 5X the power of any handheld string trimmer. It gives you the power you need to take care of all your trimming needs easily and efficiently and mow thick grass and weeds.

Optional Beaver Blade on a DR walk-behind string trimmer

Optional Beaver Blade for the big stuff

The optional Beaver Blade turns your trimmer into a chainsaw on wheels. Cuts trees up to 3" in diameter quickly and easily. It's the perfect way to take down stands of "weed trees" without bending over or dropping to your knees like you have to with a normal chainsaw.

Optional Quick-Lock Trimmer Head on a DR walk-behind string trimmer

Optional Quick-Lock Trimmer Head

Allows you to change your trimmer cord in just seconds—completely hassle-free! Cord is simply inserted into the head and is anchored in place by the unique gripping mechanism! Perfect for quick cord changes in the field, and for those who often trim dense thickets of weeds.

DuraBlades on a DR walk-behind string trimmer

Optional DuraBlades for 3/8" Thick Brush

With our optional DR DuraBlades you can quickly swap out your cutting cords with metal blades, embedded in a high-tech polymer, that slice through woody material up to 3/8" thick!

I bought a similar dr trimmer 14 years ago. Entry level model , used 2-3 times yearly for about an hour per . Paid over 100 more than this one. It held up but ultimately needed to go. Used the new one for 2hours. Knocked down goldenrod, perennial beds, short pasture with ease. This one appears to be stronger, better balanced possibly due to bigger wheels. For the price I would recommend this model.

Have only used the DR Pilot only once but it mows through grass and weeds like crazy. Only thing is to be careful around small trees or anything you like . This machine may be too powerful and it will take the bark off if you are not careful.

This machine is actually too powerful for what I needed, but it really gets the job done! However, at 5'5' I am not tall enough or strong enough to pull the starter cord out fast enough or far enough to start it. I really should have bought one with an electric starter, but I can't send this one back and exchange it. sigh

DR Trimmer/Mower
Posted by: BILL B. from ROSWELL, NM on 09/14/2018
Rating: Product Review Stars: 5.00 star rating
I was not sure that this trimmer would do the job I needed. With the return if it wouldn't, I just had to try it. The only thing I would loose is the shipping. I have tried hand held trimmers and had no luck. They just didn't have the power, also, the stringy, long Grass would wind around the spindle and stop the trimmer from turning. Not so with the DR Trimmer/ Mower, it cut that grass and no stopping to remove and clean the grass off the spindle, Thank you for such a great machine DR.

I am 72 years old and recently widowed so taking care of our land is now my job. I thought I could use a light-weight hand-held standard trimmer, but found it too difficult. I talked to a friend who has had this DR trimmer for 15 years. It proved to be perfect for me. My friend instructed me on how to correctly pull start it and I have had no problems. This was definitely a good investment.

When I rolled the PILOT into the .33 acre lot, I said no way this machine is going to cut down three to four feet of weeds I am looking at. When I finished the PILOT was a real Trojan Hoarse. It went through the weeds like a knife through hot butter. I am very happy with my PILOT.

My Go To
Posted by: Anthony W. from SANTA MARIA, CA on 08/15/2018
Rating: Product Review Stars: 3.00 star rating
So...this thing doe's a great job on grass and weeds to ½ in. thick at the base, goes through them quick, and it's fairly easy to maneuver. That said. There are some flaws too. The standard trimmer head, that comes with the unit, is a total pain to change the the cutting line on. When I first got it, I used it for a couple hours. Each time I had to change the line it took me 10 to 20 minutes, depending on how jammed the line was in the head. A few days later I ordered the “optional quick-lock trimmer head” which works fantastic, and only takes about 3 to 5 minutes to change the line on. It's the way to go. But that's another 70 bucks. Another problem, for me anyway, is the air filter. If you have to deal with tall dry grass, common in my area, the chaff from cutting the grass completely fills the air filter housing around the filter in about 20 to 30 minutes, an I mean packed. This can't be good for the engine. It needs a remote filter' up on the handle, and a snorkel down to the engine to be a great machine. Maybe another option Bottom line...this thing works great. Its my go to for weed control.

Rating: Product Review Stars: 5.00 star rating
I'm very happy with the trimmer/beaver blade system. Once I got everything properly installed, the machine worked great! I would recommend that an installation kit and manual for the Beaver blade specific to the 7.0 Pilot be produced, to eliminate the brake assembly parts that are not necessary, and the resulting confusion. I'm very happy with the support from the DR team! Tom Barton

Response from DR SupportHi Alina, thank you for taking the time to write a review of your DR Pilot Trimmer Mower. This unit is not equipped with a blade brake clutch, which is used to stop the trimmer head from spinning without shutting down the engine. If you have a large area that you're trimmer that requires you to stop the trimming head, we do recommend the Premier, which is equipped with the blade brake clutch. Please contact us if you have any questions.

I bought a home and about 20' on either side of the lot was lost to overgrowth. This machine allows me to trim grass on hills, clean undergrowth so grass may grow, and just make my rural homestead appear more manicured without breaking my back. I have purchased many wheeled trimmers over the years but this one is much more powerful. and it cranks right off. cant wait to get the blade and maintenance kit!

Posted by: Thad H. from Kenner, LA on 07/17/2018
Rating: Product Review Stars: 5.00 star rating
I purchased this product after reviewing many string mowers on the Internet. The selling point was the lightweight of the mower and horsepower of the engine. I have over 20 acres with tall grass by a bayou and this mower is a workhorse. One of the best purchases I made recently and I would recommend this mower to anyone who needs to remove tall grass and weeds. P.S. I am a little bothered that I purchased this mover 3 weeks ago and as of today, the price has dropped by 20 and you’re offering free shipping. Maybe a free roll of the 225-mil premium string would easy my pain.:

Very impressed with how it cuts down the higher grass. Much easier than using a hand held trimmer. Have used it a couple of times and still has the first strings that were put in when I got it.

The Best Trimmer Mower I Have Ever Owned

Rating: Product Review Stars: 5.00 star rating
The last Dr Trimmer I have owned was acutally owned by my grandmother in 1999. That model lasted my until june 2018. That old trimmer cut so good. THis newest model is much better and efficent cuts better and is a lot quieter. combined with the blue cord, no grass has a chance. This is well worth the money and you get so much bang for your buck. So glad I made this Purchase. Easy and light to manuever with raw cutting power! If you are on the fense on this one, don't be. Make the purchase

Had a Sears trimmer before which is why I I like this type of trimmer. Doesn't take as much time to get lots of trimming done. I just like DR products.

One of the best yard tools I have ever owned. It makes short work of the areas I cannot get to with my riding mower, it is easy to maneuver and changing out the line is actually very easy.

Very surprising piece of equipment. Goes where an ordinary push mower will not. It is lightweight so operation is a breeze. More user friendly than a hand held trimmer. The thicker trimming line lasts much longer than most. down time replacing the line is very minimal in comparison to hand held trimmers. Very satisfied with this machine !

Got the 7.0 Pilot on June 1, removed from box, attached the wheels and added oil and gas. Started on the third pull, ready for the next day of use. I bought it to keep the electric fence cleared from weeds and grass. The next day had no issue with clearing over 2 miles of electric fence and going for several hours, went through 5 sets of string. So far so good!

I have 2 hand held string trimmers and they are both 2 cycle. Mixing the oil and gas is a pain but now with the 4 cycle Pilot, it starts easily every time and is much more efficient trimming around my 800 ft lawn and structures. I'm 65 years old and handicapped so I buy all I can for comfort. Thanks DR Trimmer!

7.0 Pilot

Rating: Product Review Stars: 5.00 star rating
There should have been information about the prepping fuel button. I was almost ready to send it back when my jet pilot neighbor went directly to it. I like the new trimmer cord since I want to cut down some of the marsh grass in addition to regular trimming. This is the third DR trimmer I have owned since the early 70's.

The Pilot is very light in gross weight, but it’s not light is features.
Posted by: Michael C. from HARPERSVILLE, AL on 06/01/2018
Rating: Product Review Stars: 4.00 star rating
The unit shipped is suitable packaging, and was undamaged. After searching for the wheel nuts, filling it with oil and gasoline, and adjusting the handles, I was ready to test it in 20 minutes. The power exceeded my expectations. It cut a nice clean swatch in waist high grass, weeds, and thorned shoots. It takes a while to learn the proper way to approach tough weeds. In the beginning I was changing trimmer line every 3 or 4 minutes. After completing the learning curve the line lasted up to 20 minutes in the same environment. Challenges for the manufacturer 1. Enclose wheel nuts in a plastic bag with the instructions. 2. Make sure all screws on the plastic engine cover are properly torqued. I lost the rear one within 10 minutes.

the trimmer works great, I have a yard about one and a half acres with a lot of fruit trees, with my old hand held weed eater I was changing the line three or more times a cutting, the DR Trimmer after two mowing still has the same line I started out with and it cuts larger weeds where my weed eater would not, great machine to have and after you learn to use it would not trade it in for any replacement,

Received product and box had been re-taped. Wife had ups driver mark receipt as possible damage. Two problems -1 nuts for attaching wheels were not in a packet and only one nut found loose in box. Needed to use product and installed a nut I had - Threaded nicely but when I gave it the last twist it partially stripped threads on shaft. It is working but I expect that at some point I will need a new shaft. 2 The u shaped tube where the handle assemble is attached is somewhat bent. Otherwise, the unit works well

The box it arrived in was beat up and had a hole in it. Could only find 1 nut in the box for the wheels. Had to go purchase a nut to put the second wheel on. Then..........used it for 5 hrs clearing 1/2 acre. it did a fabulous job on 6' weeds.

We ordered this mower and it came quickly with free shipping! The wheels were not in the box. I contacted customer service and they immediately shipped wheels overnight. I was very impressed with how quickly they responded and fixed the issue. We have used the mower once and so far are pleased with how it takes down high thick grass and weeds. It was a lot easier in my husband than weedeating everything!

Rating: Product Review Stars: 5.00 star rating
I absolutely love this trimmer! So much easier and less tiring than a hand held trimmer. My only complaint is that there is no mention in the manual of the priming bulb on the front of the motor. I had a problem starting the engine until I looked and found the priming bulb. The engine started with one pull after priming.

Yes, I could write a basic review and tell you this trimmer starts and runs like a charm and does exactly what it is advertised to do. But I can't help thinking, as it obliterates everything in its path, that this machine is now the ultimate power in the universe. Thank you DR the 7.0 definitely has a Dark Side.

I am pleased with the Pilot line trimmer. It has functioned flawlessly. First job was to cut 2’—5’ grass on Island lit.quick easy & flawless. Main use is for trimming perimeter and hard to get to areas of my land. It works as designed & has cut down work time by 70. As well as saves my body from the pain of using a weed eater for hours on end.

This machine is very powerful , but it needs some throttle settings to be able to apply trimming to smaller areas. In addition every time the mow bar is released the engine stops which adds extra work for no reason.

Ordered directly from DR along with the Beaver blade. Shipped separately,the machine arrived firstmostly and the Beaver blade a couple of days later. Opened the pilots carton and removed the wheels and machine. Thats all, manuals nuts for wheels, trimmer cord were missing from the factory sealed, undamaged box. Immediately called customer service and talked with Tammyvery nice/pleasant she put in the order for the missing parts which arrived 5 days later. FINALLY get to setup and use it... GREAT! Performance is as stated in literature. Very easy to use just read the manual, short learning curve. Only 4 star because of missing items. Packing department, Wake up and double ck contents before sealing cartons.

We chose the lighter Pilot modeland are very happy with its performance. It is easy to start, operate and maneuver. We have used it on tall, thick weeds and it is amazing how long the DR blue and green trimmer string lasts! Never have experienced a string that lasts so long in our conditions. Really allows you to keep working without stopping to change string.

Poor shipping service and poor problem solving practices
Posted by: Shelly Y. from KANEOHE, HI on 04/17/2018
Rating: Product Review Stars: 1.00 star rating
I ordered a trimmer, and roll of chord back on March 21, 2018. I received the trimmer machine first which came to physical address on the 30th. Then the chord a week later at my post office box. When I received the machine there was no product pack which is the operators manual and other parts to secure the wheels onto trimmer. I’ve been trying to resolve this issue with the company and so far all they can say is “sorry, we don’t know and we’re still waiting to hear from this other location that ships out their products!” I’m so disappointed and frustrated with this cause it really all should have come together in 1 box which would have simplified everything! Now I have a incomplete product with missing parts I can’t use and I just have to wait until they get organized, communicate, and figure out a solution. ???? plus I spent a good Penney on all this which they already have of course. I live in Hawaii and this shouldn’t be so hard people. It’s 2018 and things should be more efficient with shipping. Plus at no time did this company even offer a discount or something to buffer this frustrating hardship. I know if it was my company I would definitely want to send a partial refund or even offer to send another product with the packet Ifor the waiting as a good gesture and sign of faith in my company. With that being said, I’m still waiting for my product packet to come. It hasn’t even been shipped out yet. Plus they ship things to you from different locations. It’s not like what you’re buying is from one location site! And I also asked if they could just the trimmer back cause I don’t want it anymore They told me that I would have to pay for the shipping cost entirely. So, you don’t really have any options with this company on much of anything and it sucks to be me right now! I’m out of 500 and a trimmer with missing parts and operators manual! Bad business! I hope this helps future customers so no one has to be in this situation too.

Posted by: SUSAN P. from Winston Salem, NC on 03/31/2018
Rating: Product Review Stars: 4.00 star rating
Had it about a month and used it about 5 times on a project area and so far so good. ON the positive side-it has saved me hours of labor since I am trying to reclear a path through the woods that English Ivy had overrun. Before the Pilot it was either me with a hoe,a rake and severe back pain or pay to have it done. Only gave it 4 stars since I've had it only a month. the only negative is that it doesn't start on one pull and I have used engine start for help a couple of times and of course when you're my age going up inclines pushing it is not easy but the large wheels are great. A wonderful piece of equipment

It's lightweight design and large wheels make it easy to maneuver around any obstacle. Best of all, it accepts some of the most popular attachments, including the Beaver Blade and Quick-Lock Head!
