Great trimmed, fair battery life
This has been a reliable trimmer. I’d love to try more products by this company. I can trim my yard (which is 5.5 acres in three batteries.

This is truly a solid product.

I have used it twice. It has done a great job, but with my small yard, it only completed the entire yard once. I contacted B&D and they advised that a part wasn't working properly. They said they would send me a replacement. I look forward to receiving this and will provide additional information once it has been received, installed, and used.

Got one at the start of the season and it's kept up being put through the ringer. Very durable and easy to use. Also, it is very light so the arms don't wear quickly.

Great little trimmer
I bought this last year when my husband was awaiting knee replacement. I could not crank his gas operated trimmer. I saw this and thought if could get me through the rest of the summer it would be worth the $35 bucks. It is great! I can edge, trim and it looks great! Well into the second grass mowing season!

Solid trimmer
I've owned this trimmer for 2 summers and I am very happy with it. It's easy to use and affordable. I like the single string design as it is easy enough to reload the spool yourself. The trimmer feeds out the line pretty well. I have a small yard and it's just right for me.

Not a fan of this trimmer
If you’re a fan of constantly stopping and taking the spool off and rewinding the line then this trimmer is for you! No matter what I do the line doesn’t feed properly and snaps off. I even purchased the “official “ black and decker replacement spools that were way too expensive and still the same thing.

Second season with this trimmer/edger, and I am very happy with it. It is lightweight and easy to use, the self-advancing string is a great feature, and it is very affordable. This is my favorite trimmer/edger I've owned to date.
