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.

SO IMPRESSED....5 of 5 stars so far.

I purchased this from Wally World after I searched locations on the B&D website that sold it. I charged it up and it was able to trim around my house, a 75 long foot wall, 75 feet of fence line, and about 200 feet of driveway, road edge, and sidewalk......AWESOME. I still had plenty of battery left. Strong going system and I didn;t have to worry about the noise, fumes, gas, vibrations, cranking, etc. AWESOME. However, I went to Home D and found the same system that came with a blower attachment for only 30 more dollars than what I paid at Wally World. The B&D website did not show Home D as a place where they sold it. :( This item is a game changer.

Pros: I like the ease of use, results it provides, battery life, and the edger attachment worked GREAT!!!!

Cons: The price is my only complaint.

Just what I wanted

At 60 I still enjoy yardwork but wanted something lightweight.I wanted it to do the job well and easy ! It does !!

Pros: Its quiet and easy to handle and gets the job done without tiring me out. The charge has'nt given out on me and I use it about 40 minutes,plus if I put the battery in the little blower theres still power.

Cons: No cons !! This makes weed eating simple !
