Great string trimmer
I bought this string trimmer about 3 months ago and have been very happy with the product. My previous trimmer was gas powered and I was skeptical about a battery powered option. However, I have been very pleased with the power and endurance of the trimmer. Great for normal trimming needs.

Good Features, Poor Batteries
I bought this about a month ago on closeout at half price, so it was a good value, but wouldn't have bought it otherwise.
Even on the power saving setting the batteries last only about 15 minutes before having to be recharged for 6-7 hours. I can't do my whole yard with two fully charged batteries.
It's lightweight and the features work well, but because of the small motor it's only good for light duty. I particularly like the "easyfeed" feature. This is the first electric trimmer I've owned that the line feed has actually worked flawlessly (so far.
Overall I would say that it's a decent light duty trimmer, that should have come with more powerful batteries that would allow more usage time.

Black & Decker Easy Feed - product quality poor.
This product looked reasonable. Years ago B&D was regarded as top quality. Not anymore. Used it for a season on a small lawn and easy feed feature crapped out. Such garbage from B&D lately. When this item was new, out of the box, it worked great. That was a single season's use on a very small lawn.

Does the job, should do me well.
Trims well, removed wheel due to limiting depth of edging. Better with wheel gone. A smaller wheel be better suited.Love the easyfeed feature. Prefer it over the other models with autofeed, which wasted line and made it hard to control. For average home owner weeds and edging, should work well for folks, does for me.

Great!
This item worked great right out of the box. Thanks, Black & Decker, for another great product. Read (most all of the instructions and everything ran pretty smooth. Unit seems to work only for a few seconds when it's time to change the battery; when changed, worked (again) like a charm. Enhanced curb appeal definitely.

DO. NOT. BUY.
The “easyfeed” system will release ALL the line during 1 use. This happened on two different units. This product is junk!!

I purchased this model as a back up to my craftsman gas trimmer. This trimmer exceeded my expectations and prefer using it over the gas trimmer.

The EASYFEED won't advance the line. Why ? The battery is fully charged and the line is not bound in any way.

I JUST PURCHASED THE LSTE 525 STRING TRIMMER...
CHARGED THE BATTERY 3.0 HS AS RECOMENDED AFTER
COMLPETE CYCLES OF CHARGING AND CUTTING, THE MOST
TIME OF RUNNING WAS ABOUT 15 MINUTES???
I USE TRIMMERS ALOT,BUT I WAS EXPECTING A LITTLE MORE TIME
OUT OF OF THIS TRIMMER AS BATTERY OPERATED..
HOW EVER I LIKE ITS HANDLING a lot(I'm 80) I was hoping
for more time out of these batteries (but if this is about right
I intend to keep this one (as is) if this is a normal time ?????? jh.
BEST ANSWER: Depending on how the trimmer is being used, yes, 15 minutes may represent the maximum run time. The best option would be to invest in a 20v 2.0amp hr battery or upgrade this tool to a 36v or 40v trimmer

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.
