Customer Questions & Answers

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

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."
Asked by: Alice
"cordless" always means BATTERY, not an electric cord. String trimmer means no blade but I have adapted those plastic blades to work with some tinkering. Better than the nonmilitant STRING, for heavy grass, gas units have a BRUSH CUTTER STEEL BLADE.

Asked by: harley
I am 78 years old and I use mine to do my yard and it takes about 45 minutes. I do admit I rest a minute or so after 20 minutes. Battery is not a problem.

40-Volt Electric Cordless Straight Shaft String Trimmer is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 1039.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes My Life Easier! I did a lot of research, contemplating to stay with a gas trimmer or try a battery trimmer. I was concerned with the weight of the gas trimmer and could not find one that felt light weight enough. I chose the B+D 40 Volt because it was midpriced, light weight and had very good reviews. I am adding to the very good reviews because it works great. This trimmer has plenty of power and makes trimming actually alot easier, quicker and "almost" fun..trimming is not my favorite thing to do, but I like the manicured finish after I mow the lawn...the weight of the trimmer is a huge improvement from my old wornout gas trimmer!

As a woman in her mid-60s and never before having used a trimmer, I was pleased at the results. Took a little adapting to holding at the right angle. Also could not initially discern how to make the trimmer start! Had to hold TWO buttons together at the same time in order for it to work. I like the adjustment of the handle as well. Due to purchasing late in the season, only needed to use it twice so have not yet needed to replace the line. Hoping that will be a simple process. Black and Decker makes high quality tools, equipment and implements. I would definitely recommend this!

Our yard takes 40-50 minutes to edge/trim and this trimmer has made the job much easier. I leave the power setting on 6, so no problems with any areas not getting trimmed. The battery has not been an issue, it has held up through the entire yard. This was a replacement as the first one stopped working after a few uses (felt like the trigger/switch wasn't engaging). No problem with exchange at our local H.D.. So glad to no longer mix fuel and lug the heavy gas trimmer! The self feed line is a bit generous, so keep plenty of extra spools on hand. Would prefer this model have a bump feed, but not a deal breaker.

Great product - easy assembly - the battery charged in about 2 hours - I used the trimmer to assist me in clearing a fire break - we have a very flammable invasive plant here in Northern California, Scottish Broom, that is tough to control - the B&D unit cut through the young plants & heavy grasses w/no problem - on the lower settings (1 - 3), the battery lasted just about 40 min. - on the higher settings (4 - 6) it ran for about 30 min. which is excellent considering the heavy vegetation removal - it does use a lot of string in the heavy settings, but it is worth it since it really cuts down on the time involved in clearing - excellent product.

I have owned these string trimmer since the battery operated models hit the market. It is usually the battery that goes out.... This new model, 40 Volt is awesome. Gets the job done. BUT, the cap that holds the string mechanism in place, the thing you tap for more string, broke flat off. You can't find a replacement at Home Depot or anywhere else. I had to order from Menard's and pay shipping. BLACK AND DECKER, why not make that cap a little stronger. AND BY THE WAY, none of your old caps, from the lower voltage string trimmers will work on this new LST135 40 Volt. Go figure -- why not make them interchangeable so we don't have to pay for new one and SHIPPING. Ridiculous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much Better! I originally owed a Black and Decker trimmer for about 9 years and it gave up after serving me quite well. The equivalent which I also bought at Home Depot had a wheel to guide it. It had a 20 volt battery on it and the power was fine. The problem I had was that dirt and grass kept clogging up the wheel area keeping it from working properly. I returned it and ordered the 40-volt unit on line and it was delivered quite quickly to my home. With no wheel, and much more power I whipped (no pun intended) right through my edges and it is great. I just need to learn a bit more control and I hope that this unit will last as long or longer than the previous one I happily used.

Finally got a break in my schedule and a break in the rain to do the first trim of the season. Besides the edging, I needed to use the trimming mode to cut more than half the grass that had grown taller than usual and was too much for my hand mower. So it (and I) really got a good workout, and I was pleasantly surprised that it retained enough charge to complete both tasks and did a good job (medium size front yard). I liked how easy it was to change from the edging to trimming mode as well as the different power settings. It was actually fairly quiet on the lower settings. The weight was about as good as could be expected. It was quick and easy to put together. So far so good and very pleased with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
