Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Joshalosh Worst purchase ever
Compared to other plug-in electric string trimmers, I really liked the features and power of this model and was excited to bring it home. Unfortunately, it quit after five minutes of use. I was considering trading it out for another of the same model, but on my way into the store, another Home Depot customer asked me what happened, and told me that the exact issue happened to him with the same model - twice! So that settled that, no more Black and Decker tools for me. Been happy with my battery-powered Ryobi since then (I only have 2 small lawns to tend).

It was nice and cheap which is why I went for it, but really it should not allowed to be sold. If the string does come out like advertised you run out of string in 3 seconds. If it doesn't run, you spend so much time manually pulling the string out, it would be quicker to trim the lawn with nail clippers. Not impressed.

Works fine. Good deal. I bought it to "mow" my very tiny yard that's about 5'x5'. It does the job. I'm happy and so is our little Yorkie.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DancingQueen Worst trimmer ever used
I purchased this a week ago after my Greenworks trimmer fell apart. I assumed since it was Black & Decker it would be a good product even though I was a little reluctant because the box it came it was beat up a bit, as I notice many items purchased in the store are so not sure someone else returned it. Anyway when I first used it I thought it was great because it was lightweight but noticed that it seemed to be tossing hard pieces of dirt against my foot but then realized the line was way too long. I cut it shorter and then purchased a three pack of the recommended lines which was expensive at $20 but next time I used it with the new line it did the same thing. And it hurt me again because it just keeps extending the line and only lasted 5 minutes before running out. I am an older woman with a very large property to take care of and hate that I blew a total of $70 on this when I could have spent more and gotten a better one. I now wrap the line myself and it seems to work better. I would never purchase this again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SA Powerful trimmer/edger
Bought this about a week ago and just now put it together. I found the instructions a little difficult to follow. Had to flip back and forth several times to identify specific numbers with each additional step. A simple and separate set of illustrations would greatly help make set up really easy. Once I was done with the set up though it was fairly easy to get going. I found the machine to be powerful and capable of getting the toughest yard grass or weeds. A little heavier than I thought it would be but I guess, I can get used to it pretty soon I think.
The only negative and disappointing thing was how little the initial string that came with the trimmer was. I was barely halfway through my front yard when the string run out. Good thing I had some extra same size string in the garage from my previous trimmer. I think, at least, half a spool of string with the initial purchase would not bankrupt B&D.
