Black & Decker® Launches 24 Volt Cordless String Trimmer/Edger

Black & Decker® Launches 24 Volt Cordless String Trimmer/Edger with PowerCommand
Innovative New String Trimmer Offers Users Unmatched Power and Convenience
TOWSON, MD – This spring Stanley Black & Decker launches a new high performance 24 Volt Cordless String Trimmer and Edger (NST1024) which promises to make yard care tasks faster and easier than ever before. This new, innovative string trimmer offers users unmatched power and convenience in a battery-powered trimmer.

Recognized as the number one selling brand in corded and cordless string trimmers, Black & Decker continues to pave the way by delivering the latest innovations with its new 24 Volt String Trimmer/Edger. The innovative PowerCommandä feature enables users to select between two cutting modes to best meet their cutting needs. Normal mode maximizes the battery runtime, while the Boost mode delivers twice the cutting power of leading 18 volt string trimmers to tackle tougher conditions. Like all Black & Decker cordless string trimmers, it delivers a high-level of cutting performance without the hassles of gas, oil, or pull cords.

In order to deliver more power, Black & Decker equipped this trimmer with a high performance 24 volt battery pack, new 9,000 RPM motor and a patented gear drive transmission to dramatically increase power output over all other cordless trimmer designs on the market today.   These patents and upgrades enable the new 24 Volt String Trimmer to quickly take down the tallest weeds and easily trim along fences, houses, landscape beds and more.


“Boost mode provides twice the power of standard 18 volt trimmers, eliminating the consumer’s worry about having enough battery power to get the job done.   Our new 24 Volt String Trimmer strikes the right balance between power and task completion because of the innovations like PowerCommand,” says John Weetenkamp, group product manager for outdoor products. “Compared to gas trimmers the 24 volt is much lighter, starts easier, has very low operating costs and releases zero harmful emissions into your yard.”

In addition, the adjustable aluminum shaft and soft no-slip grip areas make the 24 Volt String Trimmer comfortable to use. With the touch of a single button, the trimmer head rotates to an edger to deliver even more versatility and convenience.   To cap it off, the 24 Volt Trimmer/Edger uses an patented auto feed spool system, which automatically advances the cutting line as it wears down.

There are a number of environmental advantages to the new trimmer as well. Gas-powered engines produce over one million tons of polluting air emissions a year. The 24 Volt Cordless String Trimmer/Edger releases zero harmful emissions into the yard, while still delivering the power users need. In addition, its charging system is certified by Energy Star.

Users finally have a high performance tool with all the convenience, ease of use and energy efficient benefits of battery power. Black & Decker’s new trimmer is the perfect solution for those in search of power and a cleaner option in a string trimmer.

Black & Decker’s High Performance 24 Volt Cordless String Trimmer/Edger is backed by a two-year warranty and 30-day risk-free trial, and is available starting for $139.99 at major retailer stores nationwide.
