WARNING:
The declared vibration emission
level represents the main applications of the tool. However
if the tool is used for different applications, with different
accessories or poorly maintained, the vibration emission
may differ. This may significantly increase the exposure
level over the total working period.
An estimation of the level of exposure to vibration should
also take into account the times when the tool is switched
off or when it is running but not actually doing the job.
This may significantly reduce the exposure level over the
total working period.
Identify additional safety measures to protect the operator
from the effects of vibration such as: maintain the tool
and the accessories, keep the hands warm, organisation
of work patterns.
NOTE: National regulation can restrict the use of the machine.
The vibration emission level given in this information sheet has
been measured in accordance with a standardised test given in
EN50636 and may be used to compare one tool with another. It
may be used for a preliminary assessment of exposure.

Charge Indicators
Charging
Fully Charged
Hot/Cold Pack Delay*
*The red light will continue to blink, but a yellow indicator light
will be illuminated during this operation. Once the battery pack
has reached an appropriate temperature, the yellow light will
turn off and the charger will resume the charging procedure.
The compatible charger(s) will not charge a faulty battery pack.
The charger will indicate faulty battery by refusing to light or by
displaying problem pack or charger blink pattern.
NOTE: This could also mean a problem with a charger.
If the charger indicates a problem, take the charger and battery
pack to be tested at an authorised service centre.
Hot/Cold Pack Delay
When the charger detects a battery pack that is too hot or too
cold, it automatically starts a Hot/Cold Pack Delay, suspending
charging until the battery pack has reached an appropriate
temperature. The charger then automatically switches to the
pack charging mode. This feature ensures maximum battery
pack life.
A cold battery pack will charge at a slower rate than a warm
battery pack. The battery pack will charge at that slower rate
throughout the entire charging cycle and will not return to
maximum charge rate even if the battery pack warms.
The DCB118 charger is equipped with an internal fan designed
to cool the battery pack. The fan will turn on automatically
when the battery pack needs to be cooled. Never operate the
charger if the fan does not operate properly or if ventilation slots
are blocked. Do not permit foreign objects to enter the interior
of the charger.
Electronic Protection System
XR Li-Ion tools are designed with an Electronic Protection
System that will protect the battery pack against overloading,
overheating or deep discharge.
The tool will automatically turn off if the Electronic Protection
System engages. If this occurs, place the lithium-ion battery
pack on the charger until it is fully charged.
Wall Mounting
These chargers are designed to be wall mountable or to sit
upright on a table or work surface. If wall mounting, locate the
charger within reach of an electrical outlet, and away from a
corner or other obstructions which may impede air flow. Use
the back of the charger as a template for the location of the
mounting screws on the wall. Mount the charger securely using
drywall screws (purchased separately) at least 25.4 mm long
with a screw head diameter of 7–9 mm, screwed into wood to
an optimal depth leaving approximately 5.5 mm of the screw
exposed. Align the slots on the back of the charger with the
exposed screws and fully engage them in the slots.
Charger Cleaning Instructions
WARNING:
Shock hazard. Disconnect the
charger from the AC outlet before cleaning. Dirt and
grease may be removed from the exterior of the charger
using a cloth or soft non-metallic brush. Do not use water
or any cleaning solutions. Never let any liquid get inside
the tool; never immerse any part of the tool into a liquid.

DeWALT batteries comply with all applicable shipping
regulations as prescribed by industry and legal standards which
include UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous
Goods; International Air Transport Association (IATA) Dangerous
Goods Regulations, International Maritime Dangerous Goods
(IMDG) Regulations, and the European Agreement Concerning
The International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (ADR).
Lithium-ion cells and batteries have been tested to section 38.3
of the UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous
Goods Manual of Tests and Criteria.
In most instances, shipping a DeWALT battery pack will be
excepted from being classified as a fully regulated Class 9
Hazardous Material. In general, only shipments containing a
lithium-ion battery with an energy rating greater than 100 Watt
Hours (Wh) will require being shipped as fully regulated Class 9.
All lithium-ion batteries have the Watt Hour rating marked on
the pack. Furthermore, due to regulation complexities, DeWALT
does not recommend air shipping lithium-ion battery packs
alone regardless of Watt Hour rating. Shipments of tools with
batteries (combo kits) can be air shipped as excepted if the Watt
Hour rating of the battery pack is no greater than 100 Whr.
Regardless of whether a shipment is considered excepted
or fully regulated, it is the shipper's responsibility to consult
the latest regulations for packaging, labeling/marking and
documentation requirements.
The information provided in this section of the manual is
provided in good faith and believed to be accurate at the time
the document was created. However, no warranty, expressed or
implied, is given. It is the buyer’s responsibility to ensure that its
activities comply with the applicable regulations.
Transporting the FLEXVOLTTM Battery
The DeWALT FLEXVOLTTM battery has two modes: Use
and Transport.
Use Mode: When the FLEXVOLTTM battery stands alone or is in
a DeWALT 18V product, it will operate as an 18V battery. When
the FLEXVOLTTM battery is in a 54V or a 108V (two 54V batteries)
product, it will operate as a 54V battery.
Transport Mode: When the cap is attached to the FLEXVOLTTM
battery, the battery is in Transport mode. Keep the cap for
shipping.
When in Transport mode, strings
of cells are electrically
disconnected within the pack
resulting in 3 batteries with a
lower Watt hour (Wh) rating as compared to 1 battery with a
higher Watt hour rating. This increased quantity of 3 batteries
with the lower Watt hour rating can exempt the pack from
9
English
certain shipping regulations that are imposed upon the higher
Watt hour batteries.
For example, the Transport Example of Use and Transport Label Marking
Wh rating might indicate
3 x 36 Wh, meaning 3
batteries of 36 Wh each.
The Use Wh rating might
indicate 108 Wh (1 battery implied).
Storage Recommendations
1. The best storage place is one that is cool and dry away
from direct sunlight and excess heat or cold. For optimum
battery performance and life, store battery packs at room
temperature when not in use.
2. For long storage, it is recommended to store a fully charged
battery pack in a cool, dry place out of the charger for
optimal results.
NOTE: Battery packs should not be stored completely
depleted of charge. The battery pack will need to be recharged
before use.
Labels on Charger and Battery Pack

WARNING:
To reduce the risk of serious
personal injury, turn tool off and disconnect battery
pack before making any adjustments or removing/
installing attachments or accessories. An accidental
start-up can cause injury.
Proper Hand Position (Fig. A, E)
WARNING:
WARNING:
To reduce the risk of serious
personal injury, ALWAYS use proper hand position
as shown.
along sidewalks or other abrasive surfaces or heavier weeds are
being cut.
As you use the trimmer, the string will get shorter due to wear.
Gently bump the trimmer on the ground while running at
normal speed and the line will feed.
NOTE: Extending nylon line beyond the 330 mm swath will
negatively affect performance, runtime, and the life of the
trimmer due to potential of damaging motor. Doing so may
void the warranty.
Helpful Cutting Tips
To turn the appliance on, push the lock off tab 32 forward,
squeeze the lock-off lever 2 , and then squeeze the variable
speed trigger 1 .
To turn the appliance off, release the variable speed trigger, the
lock-off lever, and tab.
• Use the tip of the string to do the cutting; do not force string
head into uncut grass.
• Wire and picket fences cause extra string wear, even
breakage. Stone and brick walls, curbs, and wood may wear
string rapidly.
• Do not allow spool cap to drag on ground or other surfaces.
• In long growth, cut from the top down and do not exceed
304.8 mm high.
• Keep trimmer tilted toward the area being cut; this is the
best cutting area.
• The trimmer cuts when passing the unit from the left to
right. This will avoid throwing debris at the operator.
• Avoid trees and shrubs. Tree bark, wood moldings, siding, and
fence posts can easily be damaged by the string.
Speed Control Switch (Fig. A)
Replacement Accessories
To reduce the risk of serious
personal injury, ALWAYS hold securely in anticipation of a
sudden reaction.
Proper hand position requires one hand on the handle 3 , with
the other hand on the auxiliary handle 5 .
Switching On (Fig. A)
This Grass Trimmer gives you the choice to operate at a
more efficient speed to extend the runtime for larger jobs, or
accelerate the trimmer speed for high-performance cutting.
To extend runtime, push the speed control switch 4 forward
toward the auxiliary handle 5 into the "LO" position. This mode
is best for larger projects that require more time to complete.
To accelerate the trimmer, pull the speed control switch back
toward the battery housing 12 into the "HI" position. This mode
is best to cut through heavier growth and for applications that
need higher RPM.
NOTE: When in "HI" mode, runtime will be decreased as
compared to when trimmer is in "LO" mode.
Trimming (Fig. A, E, F)
With the trimmer on, angle it and swing side to side as shown
in Figure E.
Maintain a minimum distance of 610 mm between the guard
and your feet as shown in Figure F.
WARNING:
Keep the rotating string roughly
parallel with the ground (tilted no more than 30 degrees).
This trimmer is not an edger. DO NOT TILT the trimmer so
that the string is spinning near a right angle to the ground.
Flying debris can cause serious injury.
Bump Feed Trimmer Line Feed
Your trimmer uses 2.032 mm diameter nylon line. Cutting line
will wear faster and require more feeding if the cutting is done

Reloading the Cutting Line (Fig. G, H)
WARNING:
To reduce the risk of serious
personal injury, turn tool off and disconnect battery
pack before making any adjustments or removing/
installing attachments or accessories. An accidental
start-up can cause injury.
CAUTION:
Use only DeWALT replacement
spools and line. Using any other manufacturer's line
can reduce performance, damage the trimmer or cause
personal injury.
Your trimmer uses 2.032 mm diameter line, however a
2.413 mm line may be used as long as it is spiral-shaped
with smooth, round edges, but may reduce runtime of
the trimmer.
CAUTION:
To avoid appliance damage, if the
cutting line protrudes beyond the trimming blade, cut it off
so that it just reaches the blade.
Use only DeWALT replacement line.
1. Remove battery.
2. Cut a max of 8 m length of trimmer line.
3. Align spool housing eyelets 21 with the arrow 22 on the
spool head 23 as shown in Figure G.
4. Thread one end of the trimmer line through an eyelet. Guide
the line through to the second eyelet and continue to pull
the line through until there are equal lengths of string on
each side of the spool housing as shown in Figure G.
5. Secure the spool cap 24 from moving with one hand.
Using your other hand, wind the string onto the spool by
rotating the spool head 23 counter clockwise as shown in
Figure H. Continue winding until 127 mm of string remain
on each side of the spool housing.
