Customer Questions & Answers

Is a battery charger included with the purchase? or do you just plug it in and unplug it for use?

Just have seen this item on line.
Asked by: Timbo
Battery is removed to charge. The model from HD is LST400 which has 1 battery, the LST420 has 2 batteries. Last check I did was HD does not carry the 420.

How long does the battery take to recharge?

Asked by: Bandmom
Out of the box, the initial charge took about 10 hours. The next time I had to charge it, it took about 8 hours. I get about 1 hour of run-time before needing to recharge the battery.

Can this trimmer be reloaded with bulk trimmer line instead of having to buy Black and Decker specific replacement cartridges?

Asked by: dataway
Yes, but not recommended. Hard to get the auto feed system to work correctly if you do not get tension correct.

20-Volt Lithium-Ion Straight Shaft Electric Cordless String Trimmer is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 205.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from better than what I was expecting Did not want to spend a lot, was a little worried about other reviews complaining about battery life being short but bought it anyway since we don't have a real big yard. I have used it once a week for four weeks without recharging. love the auto line feed. I thought the guide wheel and 90 degree rotate for edging was a lame gimmick but found I really love that feature the most. it wouldn't hurt to have more power but for the price I got more than I was expecting and quite pleased with this purchase. I give it five stars based on what I got for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cordless trimmer After reading all the reviews on different brands of cordless string trimmers, I decided to purchase this one and am very happy I did. The battery lasts almost a full hour of trimming on 'high'; much longer than other brand reviews. The trimmer is light weight and easy to use. I like that you can adjust the length based on the user (short or tall person). The only negative I have so far is it does take a good 8-10 hours to fully recharge the battery; a second back-up battery would be helpful if you need to do more than 1 hour of trimming at a time.

This trimmer seems to have as much power as my 18 volt black and decker (which I literally used to death). Have purchased two extra batteries from Powerextra and two extra chargers by black and decker. Hope to be happily trimming for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful, Light weight Excellent tool. Really does the job. Rotating head for edging is a big plus; guide wheel is a big help. I still haven't figured out how the automatic line feed knows when to kick in, but it does. Better than a bump feed. Battery has never run down on me yet. Recharges quick; probably won't ever use my gas trimmer again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly powerful I am old enough to be suspicious of battery tools, so in that regard I tend to be a late adopter. Each time I do get one I am pleasantly surprised, and so it is with this string trimmer. This model seems to use hardly any metal yet the plastics used seem to be very heavy duty and gives it the appearance of a quality product. I expected the lithium battery to be heavy, but it is only a small fraction of the weight of the tool, which has a well balanced feel. It isn't a light weight, I think it may be heavier than my old and long dead corded trimmer. However the advantage of not having a cord easily makes up for the extra weight. Assembly was easy, except for the shield which jammed before reaching the correct position. By removing it and trying again with one smooth push it slid all the way into position to be locked by a screw. The battery life of 'up to' one hour exceeds my endurance, and the five to ten hour recharge time gives me an excuse to avoid excessive gardening! If this review seems negative, that is not intended. I am delighted with this trimmer. It feels well engineered and exactly fits my needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trimmer works great with Lithium Ion battery Purchased this trimmer because I didn't want the hassle of a cord being dragged around my large lot. Also, didn't want the maintenance problems faced with a gas/oil engine. This battery powered trimmer meets my needs.
