Questions & Answers

Is the 20 volts very powerful with regards to the Black and Decker 12 in 20 volt cordless trimmer?

i need a powerful tool due to large lawn
Asked by: Jules
Only on a full charge is it strong. Do NOT buy Black & Decker battery-operated trimmers. After 1.5-2 years it takes 2 or more days to fully charge AND it will have a much shorter battery life. After having own one of these for three years, I have realized I have wasted my money. So, from one consumer to another I want to help you avoid the same mistake I made. Buy a gas trimmer or see if there is another brand out there that doesn't have the same problem as Black and Decker.

does it come with a battery charger? and can you leave it charging until you need to use it w/o dmg to the battery?

Asked by: kauaiboy
I didn’t like the amount of time the stock charger took, so I bought the Black and Decker fast charger. I have four batteries, and It will charge one before I can drain the other. I seldom leave the battery on, because the fast charger only takes about 45 minutes or so, and that is for a 1.5 ah. Larger battery would take a little longer. My 2.0 takes about an hour. I highly recommend getting a fast charger if you have need for several batteries.

Auto feed

How is the auto feed on this? I currently have an older Black & Decker Grass Hog with an auto feed spool and it is horrible. No matter how careful I am to reload the spool, it never auto feeds properly or it jams. So I dread using it and I'm leary of getting another trimmer with an auto feed spool.
Asked by: JCobes
Recently replaced the spool, and no more autofeed. Now it's a real pain. So far have been unable to find any useful troubleshooting information, just "be sure the line is wound correctly" etc.

12 in. 20-Volt MAX Lithium-Ion Cordless 2-in-1 String Grass Trimmer/Lawn Edger with 2.5Ah Battery and Charger Included is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 701.

This is nothing like a gas weedeater in terms of cutting power...but then, it's not really meant to be. This would be great for keeping your lawn/fence edges clean for a medium lot sized home....say 6000 sq/ft lot. as long as you aren't trying to cut heavy/tall/wet grass and weeds it's fine. Battery drains a lot faster on level 2 but should still last you 30-40 minutes. it's light and my wife likes using it. she's 5'1" tall and about 100 Lbs....so it's definitely user friendly. it has an extending pole length...also makes it easy to use...and the front handle adjusts. if you cut on level 1 I bet it would last a good hour or more of operation. auto feed cutting line works fine. If you want something more powerful that is battery powered get something in the $150-200 range....for small weekend work this is fine and very affordable. PS - buy a second cartridge of cutting line while you're at it. Would buy again.

Went looking for a trimmer in the HD store I had this one in hand checking it out when another customer walked by me and told me he had one just like it and he thought it did excellent work for the price. I then looked at the features of others and went back to this one as it included everything you would need to use it and bought it. When I opened the box I found I had to put it together but it was not difficult and was done and charging the battery before I knew it. The only thing I had issue with is the instruction booklet - VERY small print and layout was not the easiest format to follow. I have used the trimmer twice in the yard and it is very easy and light and does the job I was looking for. Only issue using it is I am not sure where the actual trimming perimeter is and I have chopped into a few plants I didn't mean to trim - maybe I just need to learn trial by error but would be nice if there was a cutting guide on it so you would know where the string would be trimming....

I wanted a battery powered one with a drop-in cartridge for the string. The Black and Decker was a good value and met my desires. I have used it only once, but it is a lot easier to use than the old one.

Over the past several years I have bought several of these because they work and last a long time for my large yard. However, I have had some issues here and there with the product. That is why I would strongly recommend purchasing the 2 year extended warranty to fix or replace. But even having some problems I would still highly recommend it. This one does a great job. I have several acres surrounding my house and lots of rock gardens and I just like it to look very manicured and this really does a beautiful job. If you have a small yard, you'll be in heaven!

Has a little longer reach than the previous model from B&D making it more comfortable to use. The went back to the simpler rotate without unscrewing the shaft design the much older models used to have, which is a good thing. Battery life is better than the NiCD batteries of the past. This is the 4th B&D battery powered string trimmer I have bought and used in the last 18 years. The last 2 I bought were very poor industrial designs, this most recent one is most similar to the first, and best, one I bought with the added improvement of a lithium battery.

It's wonderful to have a trimmer/lawn edger that is light enough in weight for me to operate rather than waiting for my husband to do the job with his heavy gas-powered trimmer/edger. The only downside to this product is that the battery doesn't last long enough and I have to stop what I am doing and place the battery on the charger. (It would be nice to have a battery with more power but don't know if one is available for this product)

I originally bought this because I wanted to go cordless and it was cheaper than the highly rated Ego. (I also needed something light.) I used it once and returned it. First off, the cutting power was weaker than the electric trimmer I have. Then, the automatic trimmer cord didn't work i.e. did not lengthen. I'm back to my old B&D electric trimmer dragging yards of cord around my big yard. Did not meet my expectation at all.
