    • 40V MAX Cordless Lithium-Ion High-Performance 13 in. String Trimmer with Power Command

      Q:

      Bought this one (or two) years ago and it's been fine. Used it last weekend, recharged the battery and now it won't start at all. Battery shows a full charge. Trigger mechanism, everything else seems fine. Any suggestions?
      Thanks

        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.
