Nice Tool
I bought this item yesterday and used it today and I loved it. I have an average size yard and it is perfect for what I need. Not designed for heavy cutting but for the average home owner it is more than enough. Very lightweight, easy to use. Love the fact no mixing gas and oil or having cords stretched across the yard. Just grab it and go. Highly recommend this product for anyone who has just an average size yard

A piece of c**p
I have purchased the parts needed. Several times. I'm going to put tape over the lever that feeds the line. I purchased 5 levers one worked. When it ran out of feed and I put another spool in, that was it. They worked for about 5 minutes, then it released ALL the line. Used 3 spools before I looked at the video on how to make it a manual feed. Glad some of you liked it but if you're on a fixed income, I wouldn't suggest you buy this one. This seems to be a problem with alot of them.

Machine is great - batteries terrible
I bought this last year to help with volunteer work at local parks, nature preserves, etc. I am a 70 year old male, short and 145 pounds, so wanted something light.

The machine is great. Goes through vegetation like a dream.

But the batteries -- and the charging system -- are HORRIBLE!

I now have 5 batteries - two of 2.0Ah and 3 of 1.5Ah. They each last only a short while and it takes FOREVER to charge them - basically all afternoon and evening or overnight.

If I was just doing around my house, 2-3 batteries would suffice. But for anything more, the battery system is pure junk.

(I learned from a friend that his string trimmer (made by a different firm) has batteries that recharge in half an hour. What's going on, B&D? And, why have such small capacity batteries?)

Total Disappointment
My old Black & Decker (18yrs) was not holding a charge & I saw this one on sale at Lowe's so I bought it & sorry I did. No power at all when edging, won't even cut through semi-thick grass, line ran out twice while I was edging so had to stop & fix. It does not hold a candle to my late one.

The battery only lasted 15 minutes after a full charge. That was very disappointing. It is light weight and easy to handle.

Like the weight of the trimmer and that I can adjust length. But really disappointed in such short battery life. Can u replace 20V with 40 for better length of use?

Perfect for what I need it for
I needed a lightweight trimmer to spruce up my yard. I liked how light it was, I liked not having to mix gas/oil and I like that there isn’t much maintenance aside from charging the battery. I wish there was a bit more power but, for the price—it’s a deal.

I love the battery feature; plenty of power for trimming around the backyard fence. I was surprised how well it edges along the sidewalk and driveway as well. The 0.065" line breaks often along the drive, but gets the job done. For the cost, worth every penny.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
