      Comments about Black & Decker 36V Cordless Lithium-Ion 13-in Straight Shaft Electric String Trimmer:

      I've only had my trimmer for 3 weeks and so far I love it! I got tired of replacing my heavy and noisy gas powered trimmers when they broke. This B&D trimmer is very easy to use. My initial concerns about the battery life were unfounded. I have 1/3 acre and use it to trim around trees, fences and and to edge. The first time I used it I was leary of the battery life but had enough power to finish the job when used at the "1" setting. If I had used it under different conditions the battery would probably not have served me as well. The only drawbacks that I've found so far is that the auto feed feature for the line is noisy and that it feeds quite often.

          Comments about Black & Decker 36V Cordless Lithium-Ion 13-in Straight Shaft Electric String Trimmer:

          I like everything about this trimmer. Bought an extra battery just in case and so far it has more than met my expectations. First use lasted 40 minutes, which was more than enough to do all the trimming around the fence, house, trees, sidewalk. And it charges in less than an hour so far, although the extra battery is always on stand-by. It's made a dreaded chore a pleasure. So easy to use, does the job perfectly, light-weight. I can't say enough about how nice this trimmer is. Only wish I had gotten it a long time ago.

          I am a female and do my own lawn care. I have been using a quality gas model but was looking for something a little easier for me to handle. This weed wacker does the trick. I love the light weight and easy start.

            Comments about Black & Decker 36V Cordless Lithium-Ion 13-in Straight Shaft Electric String Trimmer:

            I have a fairly large lot. This trimmer is going to save me time and frustration. No more gas can, no more mixing, no more pull start, no more bad gasoline. All of this makes this trimmer worth it. I have used it a few times now and one charge takes care of what I need. I usually keep it at the low setting to trim around the fence in the back. This item looks like new and works like new.

              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

            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.
