Absolutely useless
Was actually bought years ago and I finally took it out of the box this year. I literally have one bush to trim 2x per year so I thought why deal with the corded style for one quick trim.
Let it charge the recommended 16 hours before trying it out. Lasted about 10 minutes and barely cut anything as I went even at full power. I might as well have been using scissors with how weak this thing is. Absolutely useless.

Works awesome, battery life is more than 30 minutes on a charge. Like that I can switch the heads. The safety was initially a issue until I bypassed it. Had this thing for 6 years now, just replaced the battery.

I received this as a gift. The shrubber handles very, very light trimming but the grass shear is pretty much useless as it pushes the grass instead of cutting it.

This works Great!!!
I received my shears/shrubber last week. GSL35. I've used it a lot since then. It cuts grass just fine. Mows it right down. It is hard to hold the shears in the "on" position after awhile, but I just change hands. Wish the "button" to start it was nearer so I could push and start with the same hand. I have to use both hands 'cause my hands are small. But, overall, I am very pleased. Haven't tried the Shrubber attachment yet.

I had these shears years ago in CT. but gave them away when I moved. I liked them, so got them again.

Maybe the people for whom this hasn't worked well didn't "seat" the blades properly.

this is a waste. The thing wont cut the simplest of grass. It' the grass get stuck - and jams the blade within 30 seconds of use.

Does not cut grass, it just makes a mess, gets clogged up. won't hold a charge for very long at all.

I have had my B&D grass shears for 5 years and the battery is just now dying out so I can't use it anymore - It has been a wonderful tool for me cutting in places a weed eater can't get to - it has been plugged in all the time when not in use - I highly recommend it...

Disappointing Performance
Unlike all the other Black & Decker lawn care products I've used, the grass trimmer GSL35 is a disappointment. The grass shear blades bog down easily and don't cut well unless lightly loaded. But the real disappointment is that after about a year of occasional use, the battery no longer holds a charge for more than about 2 minutes. Normally this is not a big deal for me, but I find that there is no replacement battery available.
NOTE: Do *NOT* throw the unit in the trash unless you have removed and recycled the battery!

Can I replace the battery ?
A shopper on Aug 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The item has a built-in battery and cannot be replaced by the consumer. The item will have to be taken to a Black and Decker service center. The agent will have to replace the battery at the service center.
Why is the battery life so short? I barely start using it and it stops working. It seems this is a known problem. Is there a way to replace the battery? Other users say there is no battery replacement. What does Black and Decker say about this problem? I charge it completely but the problem still exists.
