Why do they call it "cordless" when it uses string

This question is from 40-Volt Electric Cordless Straight Shaft String Trimmer
Asked by
Fresno, CA

March 4, 2016
I have had horrible luck with string trimmers in the past. Hoping to find something that uses blades instead of that annoying string. Why are these products called "cordless" when some kind of cord is used to knock down weeds? The category "cordess" raised my hopes, which are now dashed. Every product description I opened uses string, which is a variant of "cord."

Answer: 
Some trimmers, such as this one, has a replaceable head, meaning you can take off the head that uses string, and replace it with a head that uses plastic or metal blades. They call those brush cutter heads. That is what I am going to do.

They are referring to how it is powered not the type of cutting. Cordless as opposed to electric trimmers with a power cord that plug into a power outlet.

Answer: 
Cord in this case refers to electrical cord that powers the trimmer, not the plastic string that trims or cuts grass/weed. I'd be eager to get a stringless trimmer myself. Even better if it uses air rather than blades.

It is easy to load the line onto the spool, or at least easier than other trimmers I've had. It automatically advances, so no bumping or anything, and that auto-feed seems to work well, unlike other trimmers I've had.

I'd say it's probably a little difficult to wind the string yourself (if you decide to go that route instead of buying prewound spools), but line feed is automatic. No bumping or manual involvement required.

Answer: 
Yes it is simple to load. Simply turn the trimmer upside down and release the string holder, wind the new string according to the arrows and replace the string holder. My trimmer advances the string automatically so no need to worry about the manual process. Yours should do the same. Good luck, I hope this helped!

I don't recall the exact time, but it is pretty fast. I might say 30 minutes or so. I know it's less than an hour, so if you take a good break to rest and have a drink, it'll be ready fast enough to get back to it.

I've only charged it out of the box, so far, but it took less than an hour. So, if fully depleted, I'd say it would take, at most, 1-1.5 hrs. to charge. But go with whatever the manufacturer says. :-D

It has an adjustable cutting power so, as long as the stems aren't woody (wild grape vines require clippers), you shouldn't have too much of a problem.
If you tell us what you're tackling, might be easier to decide whether or not this is the machine you need.

Yes to both questions. 1. I have used my 40 volt trimmer to cut small cherry trees that sprout in my lawn and flower bed. 2. Height of the grass is not a problem except that it takes a "touch" to keep long grass from getting wrapped around the spool. Advance into tall grass slowly.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 766 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent tool Very pleased with product. Llightweight, easy to maneuver with litlle assembly required. Up and running in minutes. 40 volts provides ample power for all my needs and run time more than sufficient to complete the job without recharging battery. Battery charges quickly for next use. My only negative comment is that the .065 diameter string is not strong enough for use as an edger. Perhaps a .080 diameter string would do a better job, but I found this tool does not do a very good job edging the walkways and driveways, but does an exellent job for grass and weeds when used in the normal position. May 10, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by freedom from cords The trimmer works as well as other trimmers I've used. I really like not having a power cord to worry about. I haven't used the vertical edging feature so I don't know how it compares to others. Battery life between charges seems acceptable now, while the trimmer is new. the trimmer is easy to hold despite the weight of the battery at the top of it and the safety lock is a little awkward, but it's not bad. I rated the trimmer a four because it's very annoying that batteries are not interchangeable. I have several Ridgid tools that use a very similar battery but I can't switch them with each other. Also, it's hard for someone with small hands to pull the cover off of the container that holds the nylon string. May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by No more mixing gas & oil. I've used a gas string trimmer for many years and it was time to replace it. i've enjoyed my cordless Black & Decker blower for many years and opted to go for this trimmer. it's battery is interchangeable with my blower's. It has multiple speeds and runs longer than I do for trimming--more than 40 minutes at a time so far. It recharges quickly. I like the automatic string advance. I love not pulling a cord to start it. May 25, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Battery and charger failed twice Have a very small yard. Bought first trimmer at store, used 3 times total of max 40 minutes run time and the battery or charger failed or both? Contacted Black & Decker, they sent a complete new one . Used 3-4 times and it did the same. contacted Black and Decker they informed me to take it to a service center, service center said reciept needed (no longer had). Followed instructions manual, tried different outlets for charger both times. Both ended up in garbage. May 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Does the job Instructions were awful. Might as well try to figure out how to put it together on your own. Even how to remove the battery once it's in was hard to figure out. However, the product works well as both a trimmer and an edger. The battery life seems shorter than the you tube videos suggest. I have an extremely small yard and was able to trim it twice on one charge. Fortunately, it doesn't take long to charge. May 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Another good product from Black & Decker! This trimmer is very easy to use with almost no vibration, which is what I was looking for. I've only used it twice so cannot comment on how it will hold up, however I've always had good luck with B&D products. I am a 5' 3" woman and still I find it a little short as I seem to need to bend over. I'm going to move the handle higher up on the shaft which I think will help. Not sure this would work for a much taller person. Overall very pleased. May 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice I have had this for about a month. I like it. A little heavier than I thought it would be but manageable. The battery could last a little longer, but I figure the recharge time is good for me too. Takes about 30-40 minutes to recharge. Easy to put together. May 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love Love Love This Trimmer This is the best trimmer I have ever used.....I did purchase an extra battery so that I would have one ready and waiting....the battery charges fairly fast.....just make sure you let it cool off before charging.....I have 11 and 1/2 acres so I have a lot of trimming and some pretty tough weeds but I have only gone up to 2 on the power.....no more gas, oil and pull start....worth the extra money....plus it is pretty lightweight.......
