This is a good trimmer for light to moderate work. It's not meant to cut thick weeds, but it can be done. Battery is pretty good, had to charge it over night because i purchase sam on Friday evening, so I had adequate time to get a good charge on it. I got tired of Troybilt trimmers, had three...4 cycle & 2-2 cycle trimmers. Tired of mixing, thought I give battery trimmers a try. This is to hold me over until I get what I really want, a 40volt Lithium, don't get me wrong as I stated this is a sweet tool, but my wife or son can use this with no problem at all

Just purchased works ok, It does what it is designed to do. Not as powerful as plug in or gas. Bought the extra spool along with a extra battery. Battery charger is discontinued thru HomeDepot. :( It is possible to get another charger if you desire for the extra battery. Just have to dig across the web to locate one. It does come with battery and charger as a package deal for $89.00. Over all pleased. Battery takes about 4hrs min to charge.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by raymond GREAT!
I bought this trimmer for my son so he can start learning how to take care of a lawn. It's a great trimmer if you are looking for something lightweight and easy to use . It's power is good for it being one string in oppose to other two string edgers. If you're looking into have a good electric edger and not spending more this one is for you. I also recommend to use number 1 power . There's a option of choosing 1 or 2 , 2 is of course powerful but drains the battery. I just cut my edges with the 2 and my battery drained just when I was about done . With the 1 set on I never drained my battery .

Everything I expected. This a quality tool and the battery does last despite some other reviews I have read. Very happy with this. Black and Decker did a fine job.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MFR Not for me
First time trying Lithium ion yard products. I have the average 0.21 acre lot with St. Augustine lawn. Corner lot so a few more fence and sidewalk edges. I could not get the trimmer to last more than 30 mins on a charge on the lowest power setting, and each time it took more than 2 hours to fully charge! The lack of power struggled to cut through St Augustine's thick runners on the side walks, which means I was going over spots multiple times for edging. It took me 5+ charges, 2.5 spools of line and 5 afternoons to do my lawns edges!!! It's not a huge property so that's ridiculous! Buying more batteries would put the total cost way above much better gas trimmer options. I will be returning my trimmer this week within the 30 day trial period. This might be an option for someone with a very, very small yard or town home with very little lawn and different grass type.

I have no problem with the way the trimmer does the job, however, I do have a big problem with the battery. I have two batteries for my trimmer and still cannot complete the trimming I have to do. My yard is very average with not a lot of trimming and each battery only lasts about 15 minutes. I only trim grass around a small shrubbery area and around an 8 x 10 storage shed. I would think with all the modern technology that someone could make a battery that some lasting power.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by josie just remember it's all plastic
The best thing about this trimmer is that it is lightweight. It does an ok job of weed whacking but nothing like a heavy duty WE. I used this trimmer all the time because it was light and portable with the battery. It is much better for your back if you are short like I am. Better leverage.
But I would suggest getting at least an additional battery if not two. One will last about 30-45 minutes.
We had this one for two years and then twenty days after the warranty expired, a part of the plastic gizmo inside the trimmer head broke. Doesn't it always?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DaleV Very Good Cutting Capacity and Battery Life.
Does my entire 1/4 acre border very TOUGH grass) on 1-1/2 to 2 batteries.
Very ample usage for the 18 volt style of battery.
When trimming I use the main battery until it quits (about 3/4 of the job, and just pop in the second charged battery which fits neatly into an ordinary pocket.
I use the 18 volt model because of the continuing problem Ryobi has with their 40 volt unit
