Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 38353 Great Value
Great value for the price. It's lightweight and very powerful. The only downfall is the battery life. It runs out before I finish the entire yard (even when I use it on the lowest setting).

Wow! Technology has come long way. I used to seldom trim my yard. Because pulling out the 100' extension cord was such a hassle. I did not want a gas powered trimmer, so I just lived with what I had. This thing is a game changer. No cord, no gas, fast and simple. Holey moley, I trimmed the entire yard; front and back in about 10 minutes. The dial that saves battery power is useless to me, because it has to be turned to full power. The fact that I no longer have to tap the trimmer on the ground to feed more line, and I don't have to plan my route to not tangle an extension cord is alone a winner. BUY ONE!!! You'll love it!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KeepOnCutting Good product thus far
Downsizing from a 2-stroke gas powered trimmer to a battery operated trimmer takes some getting use to. However, this light compact 40V trimmer does the job around my small yard, yet I was surprised when I found it to be only a single line trimmer. Not having a double line will limit the ability to cut thicker stem plants/weeds. I run around my .25 acre yard in 15 minutes or so and have yet to charge my battery in the 3-times I've used it since the original charge up. The noticeable difference in using this Black & Decker 40V trimmer is the ability to grab and go - no more filling a gas tank and yanking on a pull cord several times then waiting for a motor to warm up.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by castle1500 Awesome!
I was hesitant buying a battery operated line trimmer as I always have had gas ones. But, this performs very well. I like the variable speed setting and use it mostly on 3 or 4. Don't have to have the hassle of gas and mixing and...you know the rest. Battery charges very fast. But, I can get my entire yard done without running out, so charging is not an issue.
I was a little annoyed that I couldn't just walk into a Home Depot and buy one. It was available only online. Funny thing though, I ordered it on a Wednesday and it came the very next day with regular shipping chosen! So, I guess not that annoying.

This is great. Previously I had another brand trimmer that shall we say didn't Worx...horrible. This is just perfect. The grass on the one side of my home hadn't been cut at all this year (June). My neighbors thought that I was going to rent the goats from the farm down the road to mow the grass it was so high. They could not believe that this trimmer took it all down at the medium speed. I am a 70-year old woman and can handle this with ease. It is light weight. The 40-volt lithium battery gives you good run time so I think most homeowners would be able to finish the job on one charge. If you want a lightweight battery operated trimmer this is the way to go.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ME Best cordless trimmer I have ever owned
The best B&D cordless trimmer I have ever owned. This works so well, it's easy to understand why B&D doesn't have it on the floor at Home Depot or Lowes. The B&D models on the floor simply don't match up and I've owned a number of them over the years. Does everything well and the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it is so powerful, you go through spools of string way too fast. $20 per 3 pack gets expensive and I've resorted to buying string in bulk and stringing spools myself. You have to remember to dial back the output and don't start and stop as often. But the 40V power gives it an edge and glad I found a review on it and purchased it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pete19 Very easy to use, and powerful
I gave it four stars because it really is simple to use, not too heavy, and I no longer need to worry about mixing gas and oil. The 40v battery is also a benefit and it recharged from near dead to full power in about an hour. The trimmer cut through thick and tall weeds with ease.
I DIDN'T give it five stars because 1) the battery ran out of juice in less than an hour (admittedly I have a lot of property and was using it non-stop including on heavy weeds) and 2) because the trimmer only has one string (my previous trimmers had two).
All in all I'm very satisfied.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sunshine369 Husband is happy!
Light weight and easy to use. Powerful enough for getting thru 4 week s of growth. My husband was pleasantly surprised as he normally prefers gas powered tools. Now we just neew to see if it lasts more than a couple of years.
