I wish I never bought it.
I was not impressed. You can not adjust the wheels. If you try to adjust the wheels to the lowest setting. You can not push the unit. You have to hold the whole unit up to use it. I would not of bought it. If I knew I could not use it the way it shows.

Describe Yourself:
just ok as mini lawn mower,better trimmer/edger
bought corded version by accident,wanted battery version,read reviews about battery versions and decided to keep corded,plus liked wheel edger guide on corded version vs. wire on battery version. Mower deck seems safer, but not for use in high grass. Adjustable length handle ok for me,short for taller person. Already had corded auto feed B & D Grass Hog

Compact and very light
I have a small lawn and don't have the space to store a full size mower. This is a perfect solution. The combination edger is really easy and I don't have to buy a separate tool to produce professional-looking results. I just hose off the trimmer and base after each use, and store them separately. Makes the job of mowing/edging really easy. Great invention.

I have a small yard I mean small. Takes more time to start my mower then it does to just mow the grass. It's perfect and does a extremely outstanding job.

Seriously my favorite yard tool now! Love it. Perfect.
I love this mower/trimmer. I have a very rocky, sticky, hilly, (aka crappy) yard. This thing does the trick better than any other mower I have tried. The trimmer does come out of the base sometimes but you just pop it back in and it's fine. I got the plug-in kind because I didn't want to deal with running out of battery power, etc. I am happy that I did because it never dies. No more messing around with gas and oil, no more stinky fumes, no more pulling my arm out of the socket to start the darn thing. The only thing you need to buy for this baby is some spools of the trimmer string, press the button and you're mowing. It is actually more like vacuuming your yard! Super easy and even a little fun considering I really hated mowing with a traditional mower. The blade mowers always cut too low and messed up my already sparse grass because of the hills. This sweet little puppy just glides smoothly and leaves the top level of soil in tact for a nicer looking mow. It is very light weight as well. Cuts through my weeds like butter, mows right over the rocks, stumps, and sticks without skipping a beat. Seriously, get it. I love mine.

Loved this but did not hold up
Black and Decker woyuld not allow me to post my original review because their system would not post it because it said it had profanity in it. It did not - I guess your APP doesn't work either. I did not and would not post such a thing, the mower would not stay connected to the base after a few uses

The right tool for the right job
I got this last year and couldn't do without it. I have a bank that is steep enough that mowing with my lawn mower could land me in the ditch. This is a lot safer and easier than fighting the mower. Without the wheels it is a powerful string trimmer and although the cord takes getting used to I can do all the edging and trimming along the fence and house at one time. With my smaller trimmer I need two batteries to just barely do the same amount of work and/or have to wait for batteries to charge.
