        Love the new black & decker trimmer. Keep the power level down as to have the trimmer last longer. It stays charged great for my yard so far. Only used it a few times now.

              After using an electric trimmer for many years, it is a pleasure to use a battery trimmer and not have to drag along an extension cord. This trimmer is all and more than I expected.

                This product is well designed and works incredibly well and should for most regular size yards. I looked at many for much more money and less, this is right there in the middle and a great value. For most of my yard trimming I don't think I went over #2 on the power control and it did the job just fine. You know, when you have an experience like this with a product that you were thinking twice about getting because of some of the bad reviews you just got to wonder how effective reviews really are. Thumbs up Black & Decker and way to go with the price CPO.

                  Am using the product as a general purpose trimmer. Occasionally get into some heavy stuff and the extra torque is helpful.

                    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?
