    So So
    Received the edger as a gift 2 years ago.The product was ok and did a reasonable job. My lawn was not very large...but it still required a battery and a half charge. Fortunately I had two batteries on charge all the time...which enabled me to finish.

    Lightweight and handled well.


    The line auto feed worked 1/2 the time...required a lot of hand release with the spool. The spool cap was not engineered well. The spring was weak...and wore quickly. Finally the gear teeth wore...and the edger was no longer usable.

    Fine, except I can't get automatic line feed to work.
    It's easy to use, quiet, and light. It trims fine, but doesn't work well as an edger so far because the automatic line feed. Despite this problem, I still prefer it to electric corded trimmers and hard-to-maintain gas-powered trimmers. I think it's nice for Black & Decker to allow us to review things here and write what we want.

    No need to fuss with gas, oil, stabilizer, etc., no cord, quiet. I don't have that much to trim, and I can trim several times without the battery running down.


    The automatic line feed almost never works. I have to take the cap off and extend the line myself. Few others have complained about this, so maybe I'm doing something wrong. Also, a few screws were missing from the packaging. The instructions weren't very good.

    It began very well and then it just smoke itself and quit!!!!
    Batteries (2) just finished my yard. It just began smoking and started burning while I was trimming. Didn't get the yard done cause it just quit! It's longevity didn't impress me!

    It work well before it burned up during trimming my yard.

    Battery Life is horrible
    It's easy enough to use but even with 2 batteries I can't finish my front and back yard. I can fully charge one battery unplug and charge the 2nd battery, the first battery rapidly looses it's charge without even being used, so I'm back to only one fully charged battery.

    Easy to use


    Battery life is awful. I wouldn't buy this again or recommend to anyone. Completely inefficient!

    Effective on a fully charged battery
    Got this as a father's day gift with a leaf blower. Have three batteries that can fit either. The units are both affective when using a fully charged battery. Unfortunately, the batteries do not last long enough and the power begins to diminish quickly. The trimmer motor just burnt out after 3 years. Have purchased the Lithium battery trimmer. Hope for better results.

    Light weight, mobile (no cords) and doesn't require gas. Effective at edging and trimming. I like having one tool to do both operations.


    The battery life. Does not last long enough and power wanes too quickly. Would recommend a second battery for any operator.

    very disappointed
    Batteries are worthless, takes 8 hours to charge and only last for about 10-15 minutes, even with 2 batteries I cannot trim my small yard.

    lightweight, easy to switch from trimmer to edger

    Works fine when fully charged, but only for a short period of time.

    Lightweight and cordless.


    Battery life is not sufficient. Battery only lasts 10 minutes or so when fully charged. Would like to know if there is a solution.

    right for the price
    I am 71 and have to do all the lawn care by my self. This trimmer works just fine for me. I have even re-filled the spools and that worked ok. I am trying to get another charger so both batteries can be ready to go as I have 2.5 acres to do. My neighbor watched me then ask where I got mine and now he too is using one and very happy too.

    light weight and easy to use. I like that I can adjust the handle and height for the different jobs I am doing


    need 2 chargers so both batteries are ready to go...no waiting when busy. wish it had a wheel on it for edging would make it easier

    Scaled Down My Equipment
    I had to sell my Stihl FS 103R because of it's weight due to a recent heart attack/bladder combo issue so weight was important to me. This is extremely lightweight, especially for the pittance I paid for it. I was surprised that it worked as well as it did, too. I have a lot of trimming on my yard and it takes both batteries (2 in box) to complete the job, but that was expected in advance. So far, I am completely pleased with it since I was coming off of commercial grade equipment.

    Weight, price ($80 at Lowes), ease of assembly, supplied with 2 batteries, and warranty. I spent $175 for a different brand that didn't do nearly the job this one does and I took it back in less than 2 hours.


    Takes longer to trim my yard in comparison to my Stihl, but still does a good job.

    Awesome little trimmer
    I bought this model because I have a moderate sized property, hate being tethered by a cord and did not want to pay for a gas trimmer and the batteries were compatible with other tools that would work fine for what I needed. Between all of my tools I have 4 batteries so I've always got a fresh charge. It's great to throw in the truck to trim at my club house or even my mother-in-laws. If you want to chop down a forest, buy a different tool. As long as I use the proper string size it had fed string flawlessly. I recommend this product to anyone who has similar expectations.

    It's easy. From operation, to reloading string to changing batteries and switching from trimmer to edger this is an awesome piece of equipment for the light to moderate duty trimming needs.


    I'm 6'2 and it's just a little bit too short for me. It needs larger print telling only to use the proper size line. Anything larger and it will not feed automatically.
