Know Your Trimmer Cord!


If you have a DR Trimmer Mower, you’ve probably noticed that DR Cutting Cord is a little different than run-of-the-mill department store string trimmer string.  That’s because we took over 15 years to develop a superior quality trimmer cord that would last longer, cut more, and be easier to install than other “bargain” brands.  We know that when you’re out trimming around your property, having to stop and replace a cutting cord that’s broken or worn out really puts a damper on the whole project.  That’s why it’s not only important that you use quality cord, but also that you choose the right cord for your trimming needs.  We have developed three types of DR Cutting Cord:

  • Orange: 130 mil cutting cord for your lightest cutting tasks
  • Green: 155 mil cutting cord for tougher, stalkier weeds
  • Blue: 175 mil cutting cord for really tough trimming such as brambles, cattails, and swale grass

Need to restock?  DR Cutting Cord is available in either pre-cut pieces or in bulk rolls.

The DR pros recommend soaking your Cutting Cord in water overnight before installing it in your DR Trimmer Mower.  Over time, the cord material can become stiff and dry, making trimming less efficient.  Soak the cord to rehydrate it and you’ll be getting the most out of your DR!  Ready to install new cord?  Here’s how:
