    Q:Is this a tap and go weedeater?

    Answer This Question

    A:  The unit does not require a bump action to feed the string. It features an EASYFEED BUTTON that allows you to advance the length of the cutting line available while trimming.

    by|Jul 28, 2023

      A:  Yes.But I do not have it any longer. Like most of these kinds of weedeaters (same problem with a Ryobi I had), string gets tangled up in the spool and you have to stop and untangle it. Bought a Greenworks 80v - no tangle in a spool; powerful enough to dig a trench if you want to.

          Q:What is the difference between 525 523 522
          by|Jun 9, 2023
          1 Answer
          Answer This Question

          A:  The LST522 is a string trimmer but not an edger. The LSTE525 is a string trimmer and edger. The LSTE523 is a string trimmer and edger with the POWERCUT and POWERBOOST feature which allows temporary extra power in order to get through tough spots.

            Major issue
            Just bought one to replace a 2+ year old model that ran flawlessly until a few weeks ago when it would run and then stop running. Replacing the battery and charger made no difference. It would run sporadically, which was maddening. I bought a new one and ran it until the battery was used up (about 15 minutes), put a fresh battery in and it wouldn't run. Exact same issue as I had with my 2+ year old model. Waited about 6 hours for the original battery to recharge and it still would not run when I replaced the battery. The next afternoon while I was boxing it up to return it, I pushed the trigger and it ran! I returned it as clearly there is a major issue. My guess is they have faulty switches in this model. A relatively simple fix yet they do not make the part available to purchase.

              Great features

                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!

                  Very Happy With Trimmer
                  After charging the battery over night I used my trimmer this morning. I have a 10,000 sf yard and used the product on the entire outline of the front yard and the back yard. I used the low speed (1) and was able to complete the entire job. I switched to high speed to see how much more I had left and it only lasted another 5 minutes or so. Overall, I would estimate (I did not time) that the low speed setting will provide around 45 minutes of operation. Also, love the front wheel for guiding edge work...made the job go smoothly and quickly. The auto trimming for the cord worked perfectly...a nice feature. Finally, the unit it light weight and well balanced. For the price this is a hard to beat trimmer for individual home use.

                      This is the best string trimmer I’ve had. I would recommend it to anyone needing a good string trimmer.

                        Waste of money
                        Automatic string feed does not work. Do not buy. What a waste. Worked for 5 minutes, then string too short and bent to do anything.

                          Model LSTE StringTtrimmer
                          I purchased the Black and Decker (model - LSTE523) string trimmer earlier this year and have used it very little. The trimmer itself works well, but the automatic line easy feed mechanism no longer works. MY overall rating would be much higher, if the automatic line easy feed option worked correctly.
