Rated 5 out of 5Â by MarkS Great Trimmer
This is a great trimmer with more than enough power. I have a third of an acre lot in the country and can easily do the whole border of my lot along with edges of tress and flowerbeds. In spring when the lawn is very thick I use a battery and a half or so. Late summer when growth isn't as thick I can do it on a single battery. It has more than enough power to tackle overgrown areas with weeds and vines. It's more powerful than the corded trimmer I had before this one. It's light and comfortable to carry too. The auto spooler works great too. I've never had it tangle and am on my second season with the original spool.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by 101101 no good
I was not impressed by the 18 hours to charge the 2 batteries and the 20 minutes of use I got out of the product. I'd really rather drag a cord around.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by outlander Great product and cordless is the way to go !
Great looking trimmer, light weight and sturdy - really like the 2 - 1 feature. Has good power, auto feed works well and have found the battery life to be very good. This trimmer has always completed the task at hand without having to switch to a second battery. Only thing missing is the fast charger, although the supplied charger does a good job but have to wait for at least 6 hours. It takes about 5 cycles for battery and charger to sync in and work together. My first cordless tool and very happy with this 18 volt line. Thanks - Black and decker.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Mecury1 24 Volt is no good either
I just bought the 24 volt black and decker trimmer and charged it for the required 11hrs first time and trimmed our tiny back yard and it died then charged it again and trimmed the front yard and it died while trying to edge the driveway.. our lot is only 50x150 with a 1300 sq ft home on it.. so not much at all back yd is 50x30 and front is mostly garden with a small boulavard to cut... I m taking this back and going and getting another stihl I know they work and gas is no big deal.
Good concept but a real flop

I have used many trimmers but this was my first cordless. Although the reviews were VG, I remained skeptical. I have used it about 5 times and must say this is the greatest trimmer, and I highly recommend it.
> The automatic string feeds nicely and I have had no problems with it so far.
> The battery life is impressive.
I have a moderately large residential yard of 110' x 55'/ I trim the perimeter, plus both sides of a 60' driveway, a sidewalk, and a boulevard. l rotate the use of the batteries but have not yet had to use the second battery.
> The unit is nicely balanced and the handle length is adjustable.
> The unit is also quite quiet (the last electric one I had warranted ear plugs) while operating.
I have no hesitation in giving this a 5/5 star rating.
