OK, let’s get started…
The Hyundai HYTR60LI cordless grass trimmer is a low-maintenance trimmer powered by a lithium-ion battery. This means that you’ll no longer need to tangle around with cords, or even worse, smell nasty fumes and pollute the air in your garden.
But its cordless technology is not even half of what makes this trimmer so great. There are many features that ensure the Hyundai HYTR60LI will be the only grass trimmer you’ll need.
Key point to note about the price…
You can purchase this item with or without a battery and charger. There is a big price difference of around £100.
The reason for this is that once you have the battery and charger, you can use the same one across the entire range of Hyundai 60V tools. So, you can use the grass trimmer, hedge trimmer, lawn mower and all their other tools.
Let’s start by looking at the key features at a glance:
- Automatic line feeding system
- Large cutting width (33cm)
- 40 min run time from 90 min charge
- Battery is usable across entire Hyundai 60V range
- Telescopic shaft (1.2 to 1.7m)
Automatic Feeding System
The automatic feeding system (AFS) allows you to trim the grass in your garden with no interruptions.
It automatically feeds line from the spool when needed, which means that you’ll no longer have to stop midway through to check if it needs more line.
In addition, there’s also a line release button so you can adjust the line length manually if you prefer.
Giving you ultimate control over how much line to have will allow you to work around different objects within the garden, such as under fences.
Large Cutting Width
Unlike many other cordless grass trimmers, the Hyundai HYTR60LI has an exceptional cutting width of 33cm.
This makes it the perfect choice if you have a medium-sized lawn, but you can use it even on bigger ones if you have the time.
If you’re looking for a bigger trimmer, check out our review of the Black & Decker ST5530-GB.
The key thing to look at is how much strimming you will need to do and the kind of strimming it is.
For example, for intricate edges on lawns to flower beds you may require a smaller head unit for precision.
For larger areas where precision is not as necessary, a larger head will help make light work of it.
Advanced Lithium-ion Technology
Many manufactures think that just making a garden tool cordless is enough. But not Hyundai!
They included a high-quality, market-leading 2.5Ah lithium-ion battery from LG. It was designed to withstand more than a thousand full charges so you can rest assured that you won’t need to change it in a few months.
And the best part?
You only need to charge it for 90 minutes and it will provide 40 minutes of cutting time. Pretty impressive from Hyundai and LG, I must admit.
Furthermore, and the same battery from the HYTR60LI can be used on the entire Hyundai 60v range, saving you money on additional products you purchase.
With an ergonomic design and the AFS technology, using the Hyundai HYTR60LI is pretty easy to use.
It also has an adjustable telescopic handle allowing you to adjust the height so you can trim with increased comfort.
And even though it’s not the most lightweight compared to other cordless grass trimmers at 4.6kg, it still weighs much less than most petrol trimmers.
This is also a good safety feature, as it allows you to be further away from the cutting line.
It will ensure that even if you are on the taller side, you don’t have to bend over so no back breaking work for you!
Easy to Use and Versatile
For even easier operation, there is an easy start fingertip control so you can just get it out from the shed and start trimming.
It also features a 180-degree rotating trimmer head, allowing you to use it as an edger for an even prettier lawn finish.
So long gone are the days of that awkward and dangerous turning of trimmer to do the lawn edges.
The metal guide can also be used to ensure you get a perfectly straight line. You can just guide it along the edge of the grass, dipping it down into the flower bed area to get the same depth of cut the whole way around your lawn edge.

What are People Saying…?
Users who bought this trimmer are mostly impressed by how powerful it is despite being powered by a battery.
They managed to finish their jobs in just one charge, and the fact that the line automatically feeds itself has garnered a lot of positive impressions online.
Let’s see what one satisfied customer had to say:
As good as our old Petrol strimmer, but a lot easier to use! Very light, very powerful, and well balanced. Very impressed by the power and battery life of this product. Will definitely be looking at other products in the range when my other garden machinery needs upgrading. -David
What’s the Downside…?
Even though assembling the strimmer is easy, some users found the instructions to be confusing. Firstly, the safety instructions were in large print, while the actual assembly instructions were difficult to read and follow.
The instructions are pretty bad. 12 pages of repetitive safety instructions in large print seem followed by the actual assembly and operating instructions in small print with tiny diagrams and illegible figures or numbers! Nevertheless, it started easily, cut powerfully in a short test and I am looking forward to using it properly in the spring. – Davidicus
