Motor bearing/bushing issue

Trimmer worked great for 1.5 years. Not sure why motor bearings/bushings wore out. I kept all vent openings cleaned out to prevent overheating. Was using the mower attachment and the motor started making noise, slowing down and finally stopped working.

Pros: Worked great maintaining a small, steeply pitched yard.

Cons: Motor only lasted 1.5 years

Worth the price?

The trimmer/edger is the 2nd one I have purchased. The motor burned out on the first one within 2 years. The lot my 1100 sqft house sits on a 50x165 lot. So it's not a big lot. This is a light weight powerful tool but be ready to replace the spool within the first year and the entire trimmer within 2 years. I plan on using the broken one for parts. Purchase it if $50 over 2 years is a deal for you; if not shop around.

Pros: Light weight yet powerful,

Cons: Will need to replace within 2 years

Great Inexpensive Tool

Last year (2015), I bought a $199.00 battery operated 56V string trimmer from a well-known competitor. In less than a year, the expensive model stopped working. Although it had a 5-year warranty, I was disgusted with the device. It never really worked properly and I felt like I was ripped off by the purchase. So, I decided to purchase an inexpensive 6.5 Amp, Black & Decker, Model GH900 to replace the expensive string trimmer. Am I glad I did? I admit I was skeptical that it would even work much less give the top quality performance that it gave right out of the box! I am extremely pleased with this trimmer! It's edger wheel helped make a perfect trim line around my sidewalks and driveway (which the expensive tool did not). It is also light weight enough that it made the job easy. Oh, by the way, the automatic line feeder works great!! The bump and feed system on the expensive model did not work at all! I highly recommend purchasing this tool.

Pros: Inexpensive, Light Weight, Works Great

Cons: None

Just bought

I went looking for a new battery operated mower as my Sears Eager gas unit that I bought in 1995 broke the bolt that holds on the blade

Saw this great concept

4 wheel platform housing the Trimmer as a mower

My yard is small and the big 24 in mower took up valuable space in my garage needs gasoline stored in the garage and gas mower pollute like crazy

This concept by Black and Decker is great idea

No storage issue

Environment friendly

Perfect for small lawns

Cleans up easy

Costs pennies to operate

No harmful fumes

No cancer causing fumes

No children worries

No flammable products

No poisonous products

Risk management

First time out works great and the tool is multiuser

Mower, Trimmer, Edger

Pros: Lightweigh, ideal for small yard, one less carbon spewing gas lawnmower, my model has the 4 wheel base to use a lawnmower great concept beans my old electric metal sunbeam and my old Sears 24 in mowe

Cons: Need lithium battery version need extra spool included

6.5 amp 14 inch trimmer/edger

I bought this to replace a gas trimmer only because at the time that I bought gas my left arm worked, now that it is inoperable
I needed something lighter than the gas trimmer, so I looked for the best trimmer with the best reviews and the best customer buys, Black & Decker had just that. Being basically the middle of the summer, trimmers were a little hard to find, Menards took care of my needs, it was the last one with it being the display model, no box but, had the instructions I needed, to get started and to find this site. Black & Decker has once again made a great product, I have a leaf blower that they manufacture and it has preformed flawlessly. Black & Decker is the company that gets the job done the first time and with ease, oh and the price was better than what I thought it would be, Black & Decker is the winner!

Pros: quick and very easy to operate

Cons: I have no cons at this point
