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

    I bought one of these for use around our horse farm and I was somewhat skeptical about a battery powered unit being up to the job. I have had this trimmer for a year and a half now and it has done a pretty good job. The best features are its light weight and no hassle use(no gas/starting). It handles all but the heaviest weeds and grass pretty easily.
    My workers have managed to mess up the head where it tends to rotate about an inch around the shaft, but it still cuts and works. One battery will not last through a typical job, but I expected that and bought a few spares.

            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.
