    Battery a Problem
    Have had blower and trimmer since January 2014. Power assessment lights on battery stay on all the time and will not go off when button pushed which is not the way it was when I first bought the set. The blower and trimmer are great but the battery is the problem. It does not last. Replacement batteries are $60+, expensive and there is no assurance that another battery will last. Was told by customer service that tis was not a malfunction !!!!

    Blower and trimmer are great; battery is not.


    Battery does not last, malfunctions.

    It has staying power plus it lasts well enough to power my trimmer the time I need
    The trimmer is LST136 with the 40V Max Lithium Battery. I am able to trim and edge my complete yard (which is not small)plus edge my entire garden. I am very please with it's performance. However, when it dies there is no warning it just dies and this is or could be a problem! Now that I know just how far it will power my trimmer under heavy use it is less of a problem!

    It has staying power and is dependable so far.


    The quick die act, but this is true with all Lithium batteries. I have four others of a different manufacture and their performance is the same.

    worked well on first try
    bought to replace gas trimmer from another department store. charged over night and worked quickly and fast on our 1/4 acre lot, very quiet and was able to do entire yard on charge.

    It is very quiet and can adjust the length of the trimmer for myself and my two sons. Wife likes the idea of the trimmer guard so I won't tear up the trees and flowers as she puts it. Also lighter in weight and no worries about spilling gas on the ground.


    Didn't come with an extra battery as I saw with another product. Would prefer that the feeder line line head was with a single string feed instead of the feeder string type. I've had the worse luck with the "bump head" string feeder type. My wife prefers to use our old gas "bush trimmer" that is on wheels since she can feed single string lines into the head instead of having to "wind" the string around the head. She says if B&D can do that instead it would be perfect.

    Lousy battery----low life of battery ----and doesn't last long
    I really, REALLY, REALLY wanted to love this product. I purchased the 36v B&D trimmer with hopes that if I bought one more battery, I'd be a happy camper....Bad choice

    When it works, for whatever amount of time it chooses to...its WONDERFUL.


    It will not charge. It will not HOLD a charge. It was never dropped. This is the 2nd battery that has had the same problem OR, its the charger. I can't tell BUT, read the other reviews and see, B&D doesn't even have them 'in stock' any more.... Sorry B&D,...You have BIG TIME battery and/or charger problems with this unit.....and if you can get them fixed, you'll get a 5 star rating from me but if not, or you blow it off, one star or LESS.

    Battery replacement cost too high!
    Battery lasted one season only but performed well all summer. It came with the trimmer.Replacement cost is high.

    Convinience of not having electric cords. Worked well last season.


    Battery replacement cost is almost as high as the price of new trimmer!

    Performance is not accurate for battery life
    The fully charged battery only lasted about 20 minutes and was only on the number 2 setting for light weedeating. The first time I used it. So I charged the battery again and it still didn't run more than 20 minutes the second time on the same number 2 setting for light weedeating.

    I don't have to stop and gas it up and reload the string all the time. It is easy to handle and does a good job.


    The battery does not run the length of time given in the brochure, on the packaging or the display shown at the store where I purchased this item.

    I own two 36V Lithium ion batteries and 1 of them gave out in the first 4 months.
    I received 1 battery with a string trimmer and the other with a hedge trimmer

    The tools work fine.


    One of the batteries went out and Black and Decker says they do not have any in inventory to replace it.
