LST540 trimmer: It Rips!!!
My new LST540 40V trimmer met every expectation. My lot is 3/4 AC. with many large trees, a home, detached garage/shop. I trimmed 75% of my property on a single full charge. I haven't had a working trimmer for a couple of seasons, so the growth was somewhat excessive. The LST540 cut through it easily, and to be fair, it probably would have finished the job on one battery if the property had been regularly trimmed. Regardless, as a person who regularly uses cordless tools in the construction business, I recommend purchasing an extra battery so you always have another charged battery handy. Better yet, do what I did: buy the B&D chainsaw to go with the trimmer. Then you not only have two batteries, but another great tool to use on your property. With the high cost of an extra battery alone, it's like getting the extra tool for half price.

Does good job but charge life short
Does a good job and is easy to use. Only disappointment is the short battery life per charge. Takes about three charges to do a 200ft fence. Still I am happy with the purchase.

MAX Lithium Trimmer/Edger LST540
So.....ACE hardware carries the batteries and string I guess. Still researching. The moral of my story is that I am spending too much time trying to order replacement parts. Ease of ordering lacks....

Can you refill the spool with new line without having to buy a new spool every time?
LRT on Jul 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the spool can be manually refilled instead of replaced.
I read alot about having to replace the battery. Is the battery covered under the warranty? If yes, for how long? If not, why should anyone purchase it? I read the battery costs around $80 to replace. If it only lasts one season, it appears to be a disposable machine.
Bob on Jun 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Warranted for two (2) years from date of purchase. This warranty does not cover damage resulting from negligent handling, misuse or lack of reasonable maintenance and care. (Proof of purchase maybe required).
