        My 36V Cordless Lithium Trimmer is new to me only used couple times.I like how easy it is to adjust trimmer shaft length,and to change from trimming to edger.My yard looks awsome now can edge all around all of the grass and the raised flower beds.I like how the speed adjustment is on this trimmer.This trimmer is easy to control and to use.My other trimmer would always give me hastle starting it the first of every season,and I would take it to repair shop before could use it.

          Comments about 40V MAX Cordless Lithium-Ion High-Performance String Trimmer with Power Command:

          I've used Black & Decker corded units identical to this for years, but they didn't last very long for the type of work I was using it for. Because at the low speeds I needed for my delicates the trigger switch would eventually wear out in time from bumping it. I used the higher speeds for the heavy stuff, slower speeds without the guard to get in close to my rose plants.
          This new unit has varible speeds so I don't have to bump the trigger switch nearly as often and still get in close to my delicate plants without the guard. The string spool and associated parts are identical to the older units so I don't have to buy anything new. I love not having to drag around a hundred foot long cord any more and working with two quick charge batteries, (also using the one from my new hedge clippers),I could easily work indefinitely and never run out of juice! So easy to use and a great time saver! Really like the adjustable length handle shaft for your height too.

                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?

              New Vs. Reconditioned
