Very Satisfied with This Trimmer!
Let me say first off that this is the third type of trimmer I’ve owned. I used a Ryobi gas trimmer for about 10 years and a Greenworks corded electric trimmer for 3 years. While they each had their pros and cons, overall, I’m much more satisfied with this Black & Decker battery-operated trimmer than either of those 2 trimmers.

The things I like best about this trimmer are that it’s very lightweight and easily maneuverable, starts immediately when you press the button and can be switched very easily from being a trimmer to an edger and vice versa with a simple twist of the shaft. I also really like the Easyfeed line feed button which easily lets out more line a little at a time but not so much that you waste line.

Being a battery-operated trimmer, there’s no messing with mixing gas and 2-cycle oil and choking the engine like a gas trimmer and no having to hassle with a cord (ugh, that cord!) like a corded electric trimmer. I have a pretty large yard and I found I can trim and edge the whole yard with battery life to spare using the two 2.5 amp batteries that came with the trimmer. Each battery will last between 15-20 minutes mostly using the #1 power setting. With heavier weeds, I switch to the #2 power setting.

While this trimmer is not as powerful as a gas-powered trimmer or the heavier corded trimmer I previously owned, unless you need something to cut down some very heavy undergrowth or huge weeds which this trimmer is not designed to be used on, it is more than adequate to get the job done with all the advantages I’ve mentioned. As a side note, I intend to refill the line spool with line from a bulk spool I bought a long time ago and still have plenty left because it’s like about a tenth of the cost of using pre-wound spools.

Based on my experience thus far, I heartily recommend this trimmer. As an added bonus, I was able to purchase a refurbished unit from CPO Outlets which was just like new minus the new packaging for a really good discount off the new price.

Black & Decker 12 inch string trimmer with 2 batteries
My wife and I both use this unit. We knew we needed 2-3 batteries to complete our typical trim job around the house. So we bought this reconditioned unit with 2 batteries. We also purchased a 3rd battery (2.0 mAh) that was packaged with extra spools of line. So we are in great shape and get the job done. We run the unit at the high speed and get probably 20 minutes of so of use with the standard 1.5 mAh battery. She is happy. I am happy. :)

LSTE525R Review
I really liked my prior Black and Decker NST2018 String Trimmer and it worked fine for over 9 years, but I like this LSTE525R even better. One real plus is that in addition to longer battery life and more power, the string spools from my old NST2018 work perfectly on my LSTE525R..

Excellent tool for around the house
Moved into a house which yard hadn't been well maintained. Went through 2 fully charged batteries (both included) first time around and now it's just upkeep. Took a short time to get used to this new tool. Now it's great.

It does what it is supposed to do. Pretty easy to use and works for me. I would recommend this as I never had a battery powered weed eater and didn't want to spend a lot. I have had gas ones and they end up being a pain with gas and oil. So far I am happy with this purchase.

I have two! I really like these
I recommend this 20v weed eater. I got a second refurb unit in May of 2017 and the batteries were dated 11-2015 but seem Ok. Someday I hope to see an adaptor for 20v max Dewalt to 20v max Black and Decker as I have a lot of Dewalt batteries and too many chargers. (They are all one company). This weedwacker replaces my old 18v versions. I like the wheel for edging, the extension for various heights and the ease of flipping the head over. I have a Dewalt 20v max weed eater and it is more powerful for the longer stuff but also more dangerous as the shield is ineffective. This B&D unit has a great shield and the spooling works great.

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.
