6.5-Amp Straight Shaft Electric String Trimmer is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 337.

Plenty of power but I wish I had gotten the model with the adjustable power level. Its so powerful that it goes through string like crazy if you're say, trimming along concrete flower bed edging. I usually keep pulsing the trigger just to keep the power level down. The string is expensive in the pre-loaded spools ($20.00 for 90 feet). If you are willing to save the spools when they are empty you can wind them yourself much more cheaply ($8.00 for 275 feet). Light weight and easy to use. Easy swivel trim head makes edging your driveway easy, especially with the guide wheel. I do hear some whine in the motor bearings after using it for about 6 months. For the price I would recommend it but get the adjustable power model.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Constant Feed Issues I've used Black & Decker electric trimmers for nearly 20 years. They used to last 5 years or more with no issues, but the life expectancy and quality has gotten worse with the last couple I've had. This model burned through line like nobody's business. I used to be able to mow several times before having to re-spool. Tonight, I went through 4 spools. I capped off the night by putting this piece of trash in the trash. I got a year and a half out of it, but it never quite worked right. I'm going to have to branch out and try something else. I'm done with Black & Decker.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from burt out at power inlet where extension cord plugs in. On march 3rd 2017 with in one hour of use on basic lawn care. It started to heat up at the handle. Wanted to check it out pulled out the extension cord thats a brand new Ridged 50ft. And it melted the housing, not the cord but where the prongs are again all within a hour of pulling it out of the sealed never opened box from home depot. I had a 6.5v B

Rated 1 out of 5 by from worst trimmer I went from an older Black & Decker trimmer very similar to this one, what a difference. This model is very inferior, does not self feed, leaves a 12 inch path, you can see where you trimmed the edge of the lawn. If you hover higher, it does not trim the very edge where you need it. I've tried adjusting the handle higher, lower, angled, nothing helps, I am ready to trash it !!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice little trimmer I'm on my 3rd trimmer. You get about 2 seasons out of them and in S. Texas we have long seasons. I love the wheel for edging the sidewalk. My only complaint is I wish it was a bit longer. If your a tall person your back may not like this trimmer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed Lasted less than year of very light duty trimming of a small front yard. First,the movable plastic part with the brass bushing inside the string housing broke. To avoid warranty hassles I purchased two in eBay,cheap.Then,a motor bearing failed, but was easily replaced with one from a skateboard, they are exactly the same size. After that, the motor burned and since I couldn't find my receipt, I went and bought another one. I like this trimmer very much for its great features, so for $12.00 I purchased a 2 year replacement warranty. This time I intend to save the receipt...

At first the Black & Decker trimmer looked to be superior to the older one that I had purchased over 5 years ago but after using it on my front yard, which is approx 120 feet, the spool ran out. Plus the line had a few snags, which required a few minutes to rewind the line onto the spool vs. my older unit which took seconds, because it is so sensitive if you don't wind it correctly the unit will not work. I returned the unit and will not recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from JUST A TIP ON THIS TRIMMER I bought this trimmer and it didn't even last one summer. Called B&D and they sent me a new one without me having to return the broken one. Secondly, this is really a good little trimmer however it does use alot of line. A gentlemen posted a review on April 2015 stating if you take of the wheel the trimmer uses less line. I had nothing to loose and the wheel was a pain anyways. I took it off and didn't even go through one spool of line. Last time I trimmed it used 4 spools and then some. I believe he was correct and wanted others to know if they're interested.
