              Thought I would end up sending it back. Not so! Runs far longer then I thought it would. I have a lot of things to trim in my yard but got tired of gas trimmer. This unit comes with a 40volt battery and has much power. I was able to run it on the #2 setting and did everything I needed to. When I was done the indicator lights showed no lights but the trimmer was going strong. Haven't run it long enough to see if it eats a lot of string but I don't care because it runs so long it's worth it for me.

                Q:

                I purchased this item one year ago. It came with two batteries. One of the batteries will not take a charge. The other works fine. My local Home Depot does not carry the 36volt lithium battery anymore. What should I do?

                  Just buy a 40 volt which B&D says are designed to be 'backward' compatible. Just like older software being able to run on newer machines, this capacity allows the new 40 Volt Lithium line to allow use of older tool/battery combos.

                  Battery life cannot be stated definitively because it depends on many factors. This trimmer includes a dial to adjust between power and/or battery life.

              New Vs. Reconditioned

              What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

              Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
              • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
              • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
              • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
