horrible Black & Decker LST300 unit
Summary:
1. bad battery - right out of the box
2. weak unit - not very strong
2. faulty handle - it changes positions by itself as you are trimming
3. horrible customer service from Black and Decker/DeWalt here in Toronto, Canada

I am in Toronto, Canada. I bought this Black and Decker 20V LST 300 model trimmer from Walmart the other day. I charged it overnight like instructed and the next morning I commenced trimming my lawn edges. I instantly noticed that the trimmer was not very robust, but thought it was due to it being a 20V instead of a 40V, and (definitely not like my RYOBI which I proudly had for almost 10 years until it eventually bit the dust last week. The darn Black and Decker unit began shutting off on me every few minutes. I must add that the grass was not even long at all, it was quite short actually so it was no strain on the unit. I was just trimming some missed scraggly areas to tidy the lawn up. Then after about 10 minutes of constantly needing to restart the unit it totally shut off on me and wouldn't turn back on. My neighbour saw the issue and came over and luckily he had a similar B&D battery and let me borrow it. Although the power was not impressive, it managed to trim for the next 30-40 minutes, that to me confirmed that for sure that it was the battery. The next day (today) I decided to call B&D support today to get a replacement battery as I didn't want to return the trimmer back to Walmart as it was the last one they had. After on the phone for 15 minutes they told me to call DeWalt in Mississauga, Ontario at 289-290-4668. I called the number and was immediately put on hold for 27 minutes. I finally gave up and hung up. This is poor quality hardware and, even worse, poor quality customer service response from Black & Decker/DeWalt.
If you don't get these issues resolved for me within the next few days, I will be returning the item to Walmart. Then goodbye Black and Decker/DeWalt from Walmart. Hello RYOBI from Home Depot.

Battery power really lasts. Not being attached to a cord lets you go anywhere and this has the power to handle the job.

Wonderful product, works great for my sized yard. Only issues I do have is the battery, this could just be me but it seems that it takes a bit long to charge it. Other than that great product.

Couldn't be happier!
This product is excellent. Simple to charge and use in my small yard, on my neighbors i help cuz he is older and needs the help or even at my mom's yard it's 2 acre and stays charge the whole time. I use it over my gas trimmer. Only real problem with it is when you try to trim taller grass that's wet it sticks sometimes but can be avoided by moving into the grass slowly.

Great little trimmer!!
It's harder to lift/haul things around than it used to be. This is a simple workhorse that's easy to manage. Fun to trim the weeds again!! (We've recommended it to several folks around here...)

time saver
i never seem to be able to keep gas powered trimmers working more than a few times. i switched to electric because of that but dragging around 100 ft. of cord gets old. this works great. i have a nice size yard and can usually get it all finished on one charge. a spare battery might be something for me to consider but i can always come in later and finish. the only con, i have another 18v battery powered B&D tool and i wish the batteries were interchangeable. one is ni-cad but that should still work just need a separate charger for each.
i would definitely buy it again.

Great Product
I used a gas trimmer for years and put up with the hard starts, oil gas mixture and plug changes. I did it because I did not think a battery powered trimmer would work well. I was wrong, this trimmer is great. The price is so good that I bought second one for an extra battery and backup it needed.

LIGHT WEIGHT AND THE BATTERY LAST A LONG TIME. I HATE LUGGING CORDS AROUND, WITH THIS JUST REMEMBER TO CHARGE THE BATTERY

Very pleased.
After 1st use I am impressed with the way it does the job. Has plenty of power for the jobs I plan to use it for. Have not used it enough to determine how long the battery will last before needing a recharge? Believe it will be just fine though. Good bargain.

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.
