Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pleased with 12 Volt cordless trimmer edger This cordless trimmer was purchased as a replacement for a 18 volt cordless trimmer edger by Black and Decker. I found it easy to assemble and use. It is perfect for the small yard that I have as can do the trimming and edging without having to recharge. June 2, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product The trimmer was easy to assemble and use. I am a woman in her early 60's with several health issues and needed a trimmer that was lightweight like this and I love the automatic feed. Sometimes I do a little extra trimming and the battery runs low but I just charge it for a bit then finish up. I have an average size lot with several flower beds, trees and shrubs and I can usually get it all done with no problem. The only thing I would like different about this is to have an extra battery I could keep charged for the times it does run low. July 16, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 12-Volt 10 in. Straight Shaft Cordless Trimmer Edge Let me tell you I am really torn on how to review this.....The trimmer works well now, I would wish for longer battery life... but at least it works at all....whomever shipped this to me on your behalf really screwed Home Depots rep. I got the trimmer read the instructions, plugged it in for a whole weekend plus, went to use it and NO POWER at all. After waiting 2 plus days from Black and Decker to reply, I took the handle apart to expose the battery, and low and behold.... the battery was not hooked up....Attached the clip to the battery and works fine.....but, this is a sealed unit, cant get to or see the battery without taking the handle apart....the company that shipped it is be-smurching Home Depots name.....

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Black and Decker has discontinued this model I am rating this product low because it is discontinued by Black and Decker. Found that out when I went to the Black and Decker website to register the product.. I feel this should be noted in the product description and/or a suggested current model be made. I understand home Depot probably needs to sell inventory. I simply would have liked to know I was buying a discontinued model. June 15, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by just fair at best This is my second unit like this. Had one exactly like it a few years back, thought it could handle our small to medium yard just fine. That is not the case, as it almost always runs out of power after 10 - 15 minutes max. of use. I would personally get a different(longer battery life) unit. I'll be replacing this one probably before the season is over. June 9, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product This trimmer does a great job! Easy transition to edger. Only issue I have run into is with the battery life. I have a large yard (just under an acre) with several things to trim around and sometimes have to let it recharge to complete the job. June 9, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Okay for the money It is easy to use, but does not hold a charge long. I cannot trim my front and back yard all at the same time. June 2, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Decent Cordless Trimmer I bought this trimmer knowing that it wasn't the top-of-the-line model. With that said, I've used it several times. It does what it's supposed to do. It's not so great for thick weeds. My only complaints are the automatic line feed. It seems like it goes for a while at a reduced length, then it will suddenly extend to full cutting length. I didn't take the time to measure it, but it seems like you're not getting the full length most of the time. The other complaint is the battery. There is no separate cord to plug into the wall. Instead, you have to mount the charging bracket on the wall. It has a peg that fits into the top of the trimmer so you can hang the trimmer for storage. The bracket has the charging post built-in. This is the only way to charge the trimmer. This was kind of a pain when I wanted to do the initial charge. Now that the bracket is mounted, it's a convenient feature. I'm not sure about battery life compared to other models. For people who have nice yards and just want to do some edging, this model is probably fine. I have a small yard, but it has pockets of super weeds and other nasties so I spend more time battling them. I definitely give this trimmer a workout so we'll see how well it holds up. June 9, 2014
