      Comments about 36V Cordless Lithium-Ion High-Performance 13 in. String Trimmer with Power Command:

      The LST136R is easy to use, lightweight, versatile, and powerful enough to get the job done. I replaced my gas trimmer and corded edger with this one tool, and I am so pleased. I love that the head flips right over to switch from trimming to edging, and the fact that the line automatically feeds is great. My gas trimmer has more power, of course, but this one gets the job done without any trouble...and this is SO much easier than my corded edger, with which I've always fought. The battery life is good, not great. Big yards might need an extra battery to get the whole job done, but the battery also recharges very quickly, so if you're patient, one will be all you need. I bought mine reconditioned, and it was about half as much as new. So glad I did. Works great.

          I had a Ryobi before & the line always needed to be pushed through. The line on the Black & Decker works like it is suppose to, a great trimmer.

          The BEST String Trimmer

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

            This is THE BEST string trimmer on the market. Battery time is 20 minutes solid, and you can really whack a lot of thick, tall grass and weeds in that 20 minutes on the highest setting. Or, if you don't need the unit to work that hard, you can set it lower and get more time out of it.

            I especially like that there's no nasty gasoline and that you can stop and start it at will. The battery charges up in about 45 minutes, so you'll need at least two if you have a lot of weeds to whack.

            I put my last unit through far, far more than it was designed to do, and it finally bit the dust. There was no doubt that I would replace it with the same trimmer.

              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?
