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

    The only draw back is the charge holds 20 minutes of steady use, and takes 6 hours to charge. I can buy a rapid charger and another battery-but with that additional cost I could buy a new gas trimmer. But I love the trimmer no choking on gas fumes, no mixing fuel, or buying plugs and fuel every month. The battery packs are getting better and pretty soon the cost should go down for the rapid charger and additional battery.

    Oh don't forget, buy a 3 pack of spools -line added, it does use a lot of line during heavy use, believe me it,s got some power. Also the thumb safety button will take some getting use to, but you got to have it cause something or someone will pull the power trigger and off it goes-know what mean. I went to sit it down on my porch - accidentally pushing the trigger, nothing happen thank goodness.

    Don't let the cons bring you down cause this is a nice trimmer, for small home or small area, it will get the job done very nicely. It's a smooth operator take my word-I LOVE IT!

          Very impressive machine. However I had problems with the battery. They sent me a new 40V battery but it would start charging and then after five minutes start flashing red. I took it to a service center and they said either the battery was bad or the charger was bad. They sent it back to Black and decker. I am waiting for the results. Hopefully all the kinks will be worked out when I get it back. I will wait and see how it works when I get it back to say weather I would recommend it to a friend.

              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.
