Initial impressions

I was given this as a gift to replace my 10 y/o 2 cycle trimmer. I was very hesitant about this unit but kept an open mind about it. I allowed the battery to become fully charged before initial use. As I waited I examined the unit and found it to be light, and appeared to be durable. Once the battery had charged I installed it and went out to trim 500' of fence line along with various areas around my home, sidewalk, landscaping, shed, and deck. I left it on the #6 power setting because I assumed this unit wouldn't compare to my gasser. I was wrong! This trimmer annihilated everything I put in its path. I was able to do all the trimming I needed on the #6 setting on 1 charge (minus 10' of fence line due to using the entire 30' spool up, not the battery dying). I am absolutely impressed with this trimmer. Now that the overgrowth is trimmed down I should be able to use it on a lower setting to conserve the battery and line. I did run the battery down to the point that the battery status lights would no longer light up, but it still powered the trimmer. It is so nice to trim without hearing protection as the unit is very quiet. Vibration is minimal which makes the trimmer a pleasant experience to use = no more numb hands/arms. The 2 biggest cons I have so far is the price of replacement batteries and spools. Batteries are outrageous @ $80-90 for 1 or $140-170 for 2. As for line, I will just purchase 300' of .065 line and re-spool instead of $20 for 3-30' pre-wound spools. I have about 450' of .090 for my gas trimmer. I was informed I could drill out the holes in order to use thicker line but I do not want to void my warranty if the need were to arise. I would of liked it to be about 12-16" longer in length for more comfort as I am 6'1 and have to bend a bit. But not to bad to use for the amount of time I need to trim. Now granted I only have about 30 minutes of use (just received this trimmer 5/23/15) but I am very impressed. This is just a "first impressions perspective". I hope this product holds up over time. I will have to re-review it after I have had more time with it. But for now, if your looking at going gas less, this seems to be a good option.

Pros: Lightweight, no fumes/mixing gas & oil, quiet, powerful, power control dial, auto line feed

Cons: EXPENSIVE BATTERIES and SPOOLS, uses light duty.065 lines, longevity of the electric motor/wiring/batteries, could be a bit longer in length, auto line feed

Great string trimmer

I have had my string trimmer for 3 years and I love it. I had a gas trimmer and it was always hard to start and very noisy. This trimmer is pretty quite and it has plenty of power. I bought an extra battery just in case I am doing a lot of trimming and the battery runs out which is not often. The same battery works with my blower/vac which is a real plus to me.

Pros: No gas, plenty of power

Cons: none

I purchased the LST 136 aafter using the smaller model. I loved it and after having it for only 5-6 months the engine was gone. I hope warrranty cov

I loved the product but after 4-6 months use, the motor stopped working
brought it to a repair shop, and was told it was not worth paying to repair and replace the motor. Told to call Black and Decker

Pros: Worked great.

Cons: The motor stopped after using for only 4-6 months

Good trimmer, lots of pros and cons. Would consider 20V for versatility with other tools.

The 40v works well and is easy to use. The adjustable speed/power setting is nice. The adjustable shaft length is easy to use, but may require a little lubrication once it gets dirty.

Pros: Spool changes are very easy. 20-30 minutes per charge on the battery. Adjustable shaft length is easy to use. Lightweight. Charging is a snap with the smart charging system. It will not charge the battery when it's too hot (right after use). The self feed works quite well on full power. A little slow to feed on settings 1-3.

Cons: 40v batteries are insanely expensive and not compatible with very many other tools as of yet. Replacement parts are hard to find. Only 1 season (April to October) and the spool cover broke. I am not very gentle with it and run it hard about 30-45 minutes per week, so I'm not surprised that it broke.
