Details

Enjoy the freedom and versatility of not being tethered to a power cord or being victim to gas fumes with the 40V MAX Lithium-Ion Cordless 13 in. String Trimmer. The capacity of the 40V Lithium-Ion battery will provide you with the power to tackle any cutting job quickly with enough run time to not need a recharge or second battery pack. If you need to further customize the string trimmer to suit your needs, use the PowerCommand dial to either maximize the runtime or power, allowing the PowerDrive Transmission to deliver more power from the motor to the cutting strings.
Features:
  • 40V Lithium-Ion battery with built-in state-of-charge indicator lets you know when the battery needs recharging
  • Use PowerCommand dial to choose between max power to tackle thick weeds and max runtime to increase battery life
  • The PowerDrive Transmission delivers more power from the motor to the cutting string so you can get the job done faster
  • The Automatic Feed Spool ensures continuous work without bumping and having to stop to adjust the spool

Black & Decker String Trimmer - LST136W
The trimmer has all of the conveniences I was looking for. I especially like the auto feed. I have only had a chance to use it twice, but am looking forward to summer maintenance. I have not given the battery a real test yet, but I am pleased with the power the trimmer provides.

36V L-I Cordless Trimmer still available
The trimmer was available even though it is no longer manufactured.
I already ordered the battery for my old one that crashed.
This was a life-saver!

Exactly What I wanted and ordered
Loved the light weight and ease of use. Perfect for light trimming. Can do heavier trimming but battery charge won't last long. Charging the battery is quick. Like the number of power settings and being able to telescope the trimmer to adjust for a person's height,
New battery is expensive so hope this battery last a good long time. Battery charge life is a concern. Don't think I got even a half hour out of the battery on low setting.

This is THE grass trimmer you WILL want to buy!!!!
I purchased this grass trimmer after thorough research. This B&D replaces the Ryobi 18v trimmer that I have had for the last 2 years, which already the battery is not holding a charge....thus the reason for replacement in that it was less expensive to buy an entirely new trimmer than to buy just "A" battery.

I like the way the B&D feels in my hand and it is not top heavy like the Ryobi was. The 40v battery on the B&D is much smaller and there in lies the real difference.

I can make it completely around my 1.6 acre field that has many pine trees and bushes and still have enough juice for maybe another 20 minutes. charging time is rather lengthy, so for those days I need to trim more, I might consider buying an extra battery.

I do have to admit though, that this trimmer does use a bit too much line, but then too, it depends what you are trimming. Case in point, I noticed that after trimming the grass along the driveway's edge, that I was running short on line. So a hard surface will cause the line to continue to advance more quickly thus running through more line than normal.

The push-button release to chanel the head from trimmer to edger is much easier than the old collar that had to be loosened and then re-tightened after changing the position of the trimmer head.

Quieter than most
I found it lighter in weight than my 12V B&D and much quieter. Usually I use ear plugs, but can use this while wearing hearing aids.

Will a 20V B&D battery work on this 40V trimmer?
Patty on Jun 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Patty,I do not think the 20V battery will work with the 40V trimmer. There would not be enough power for it if it did fit. The 40V battery has a built-in battery checker and is charged on its End, instead of the slide-type charger for the 20V.I use up both of my 20V batteries before I have completed my yard in the city.
Does it have two strings for cutting?
slim on Nov 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No, this trimmer has one cutting string.
Are these items reconditioned ? Not new?
RC on Jul 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Black & Decker 36V MAX Lithium-Ion Cordless 13 in. String Trimmer is a brand new item.
What is the difference between the LST 136 W 40 V at $139.99 and the LST 136 40V at $129.99? Both are NEW. I cannot find where it explains what the difference is between these two trimmers. It's the "W"...but what does it signify?

Thank you for your time
Lugnut on Jun 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: LST136W is variable speed. LST136 only has one speed.
I have a 36 volt clipper can I also use the battery in the 40 volt weed trimmer?
Bob on Apr 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the 36v battery was directly replaced by the 40v unit.
Will my older 36v ion batteries work with this 40v unit?
b&d man on Apr 9, 2016

What is the runtime on a fully charged battery while using the high setting on the trimmer??
turbo on Oct 1, 2015
