If you have strength issues in your hands this unit is not for you. Yes there are “two buttons” that have to be pressed in combination but only very briefly. One button basically unlocks the other so it can operate. But there’s no lock to keep it “on” and the machine is a little heavy so your hands will not do well with it.

Do this combo come with a (1) 3.0Ah Battery, (1) 2.0Ah Battery? The title yes it does but the P...

does it have an automatic feed? Does it work?

Asked by Ana April 28, 2021

Answers

Yes and no. It has one but it’s not very good at keeping up with demand. But it also has a button right by your hand you can push to feed the line which works very well.

You’re not gonna want to use this or almost any trimmer out there if you’re interested in one that’s “comfortable “ for a bad back. They almost all require bending for me at 5’7” and since you’re half a foot taller you’ll be quite bent using it.

it runs out string fast

Asked by wes August 10, 2020

Answers

We have two of these, one is and older model, and neither go through string overly fast. Either your auto feeder is malfunctioning or you are getting too close to things that it won’t cut and they’re eating up the string. Concrete curbs, metal sign posts and metal fencing will all devour the string so you have to be extra careful trimming around that stuff. It’s only plastic string so it’s gonna break if you hit it against something harder than plastic…

Best trimmer I’ve ever had!
I just bought one of these and absolutely love it! Where have I been? I’ll never go back to using a cord! This trimmer is so easy and fun to use that I went back there the store and bought a cordless blower. The little 20v to be exact. After watching a few videos on these I am so glad I went with Black and Decker! Kudos on a great product!

I like the power of our new trimmers, the longer battery life and the two speeds available. However, the automatic twine feed is not all that automatic. And I can already hear a bearing noise in one of the two trimmers we bought.

You get what you pay for
Does the job, for the short time you will own it. Like the title says, you get what you pay for. Easy to use but wish it could extend a little longer and wish the battery life was better, even on runtime mode. Have had 2 of these and each one lasted 2 seasons. The electric motor in the head dies out for some reason. Will not be purchasing again.
