Thanks OP!

bobby350z 05-13-2013 09:35 PM

Have no clue about trimmers but needed one so ordered it. Thanks.

ChallengerV8 05-13-2013 09:48 PM

Most of the reviews complained about the battery life, and this is a manufacturer refub, so I hope they took care of the issue and put in a better battery. I was in the market for one and for $19.07 shipped, you really can't go wrong with it.

kunalchatt 05-13-2013 09:58 PM

Thanks OP. Ordered one.

atari 05-13-2013 10:05 PM

Wonder if it comes with a used battery?

Also, I'm trying to figure out why their wanting to charge me sales tax... I am in Ohio, and they're in PA.

(I see it's actual Black and Decker store. Did not know they had a B&M store in Ohio. Never seen one.)

Anyone own this I was going to buy the 36 volt cordless trimmer/edger on Amazon however this is only 20 bucks compared to about 150 for the other one.

glam 05-13-2013 11:01 PM

Bought one just for the battery. Hope it's good... thanks OP.

leap 05-13-2013 11:04 PM

Thank you.

Well then. Good thing it comes with the trimmer/edger. :)

jmang 05-13-2013 11:13 PM

bought one cuz i needed one.

no more cord pulling for my gas powered one.

viking95 05-13-2013 11:16 PM

Sorry I gotta TC this one. I have a B&D 18V trimmer, and it's terribly underpowered and the battery goes out super fast, even with a backup. No backup battery and 2/3 the power? No amount of money is worth it - it's just going to take up space in your garage before it takes up space in your trash can.

wassabe 05-13-2013 11:16 PM

This is cheap but the average reviews for a new one says it only lasts about 10 - 15 minutes, maybe good for a very small size yard or have to break it up in to few sessions, that would be a headache.

Almost pulled the trigger but short battery life just too much hassle, would of been great if its replaceable battery.

cstring 05-13-2013 11:18 PM

got one thanks! no more messing with the cord :D

tukwok 05-13-2013 11:19 PM

FYI buyers of the 12V are going to dislike the need to cleaning out the caked on grass from the shroud or the weight will be unbalanced.

It depends on how much you need to trim and edge and if an outlet isn't in range to use an extension cord. You may want to consider the $24 corded trimmer/ edger [ebay.com].

Mixed reviews on Amazon. For under $20 it's worth taking a chance. One Amazon review said it's been going strong for him for 7 years.

Jlicea 05-13-2013 11:28 PM

My GAS trimmer can get annoying at times, specially on small little weed patches, hopefully this $20 timmer doesn't let me down. Thanks..

hulksweider 05-13-2013 11:31 PM

I am tempted for light duty - but I have 2000 ft of .080 line

I have the 36 volt trimmer and it's awesome. I bought it last year with a free extra battery from Lowes after price matching home depot. The battery itself cost $90 at the time. Maybe the deal might come around again.

MechaZ 05-13-2013 11:42 PM

I was looking for a cheap trimmer for light work. Perfect deal for me - thanks op!

samsen 05-13-2013 11:46 PM

Good. Was waiting for something like this.
Now hope the product is not disappointing.

sam19777 05-13-2013 11:51 PM

Black and Decker is selling terible condition items. Last time I order a trimmer it says refurbished but the condition is extremely bad, it has been heavily used. The string is bent already so I need to replace it at Homedepot.

monkeymanmoi 05-14-2013 01:03 AM

I have a B&D that comes with two rechargeable batteries. My yard is not that large and I can barely finish the job with one battery, so I would assume this one does run down quickly. That's not a huge complaint actually because I enjoy the trimmer much more than the gas powered one I used to own.

Rawimpact 05-14-2013 01:03 AM

heres a tip, dont get wireless anything, batteries will kill you. Get corded

pepe50 05-14-2013 01:15 AM

I have had one of these for about 7 years. I got a Stihl trimmer last year, but still use this more often. At this price I am buying another because the battery is showing age. Great for quick light duty trimming after mowing.

takethecash 05-14-2013 01:46 AM

Sorry. I haven't read all the other post. I did a lot of research into battery powered trimmers though. If you actually need a trimmer, battery powered may not be for you. They may work around the house. Forget the driveway, sidewalk, patio, 2400 feet of fence (when both sides), etc. Do you own research into your needs. Make an educated decision. Many people aren't happy with battery powered.

I went to Walmart and got the cheapest Weed-Eater brand gas powered one they had. I think it's $47. Starts every time and plenty of power. Just let it idle and it eats up weeds. A steal when you add into it how much extra batteries cost.

Give it the gas and use it to trim the bushes. Buy some extra spools of line then. Use it for the edging too when you flip it over. So consider your needs.

maj0819 05-14-2013 03:27 AM

I have had one for a couple of years. I get about 15 minutes of running time. I have a 12,000 sq ft lot and have a fair amount of trimming. I can do it all but have to go fast. I would definitely buy one at this price. Plus my wife can use ths instead of trying to start a gas one.

VinceN6707 05-14-2013 03:32 AM

I see the main concern is the battery life not lasting long enough for a job, I'm more than postive I can tweak this into an external batttery set up so I'm gonna jump on this deal.

zazon 05-14-2013 03:34 AM

12v seems a little small unless you live in a condo or something.

Thanks, almost bought that one as well, until I read the amazon reviews !! Dreadful [amazon.com]

Thanks op, in41 reppednthumbs..
This will work for me even if its just workable for 10 mins, as I tend to not to want to spend more than 5mins trimming around the yard in anycase.

defdc 05-14-2013 04:02 AM

Always wanted to try one! $20 is a safe bet! Grabbed one!

jbloggs 05-14-2013 04:16 AM

If nothing else, use to trim beard :D

jottect 05-14-2013 04:29 AM

Last year got a similar deal (refurb.), but with two external batteries.
It was looking like new.
Still running like a champ and I'm very happy with it. Two batteries are more than enough to trim my house pretty well.

NJJohnny 05-14-2013 04:47 AM

I had a B&D trimmer/edger and it lasted for years. Definitely good for trimming. I have a lot of sidewalk to edge (corner house) with grass on both sides and find that it does not have enough sustained power for a lot of edging. For the price with shipping included you cant go too wrong for light work as long as the battery is good and it works well.

Yep, my thoughts exactly! Unless you have 5ft or less to edge save your money and buy a gas one

GuitsBoy 05-14-2013 04:53 AM

deadski... Already have a new gas trimmer, but its such a pain. I would have loved a cheap electric for quick tasks.

MonstBlitz 05-14-2013 05:24 AM

I bought one of these a couple years back. It came with 2 batteries which is absolutely necessary. If this model only comes with one, it's not going to cut it. I only have a tiny townhouse lawn to trim and I can't even finish that without switching batteries. And once the battery starts diminishing it gets unusable very quickly. Great for small townhouse lawns or for any lawn where the trimming is minimal. But for big jobs the battery life will drive you crazy.

eddard 05-14-2013 05:40 AM

I snatched one before I left for work. Good thing, it's OOS now. Thanks, OP! Repped.

mrkk 05-14-2013 06:12 AM

for 18v drill, battery itself is worth 30?

Thanks for the information

I have one of these corded trimmers I picked up from the clearance rack at Lowes. It's not as bad as the reviews make it out. They had problems with the trimmer head design. Mine was missing the head (hence the cheap price.) I would imagine the ones in the auction would have the newer design head.
The worst thing about it is the design of the hook for the cord. It continually slips off. I have taken to just tying the power cord thru the handle.

Thanks I appreciate your commenting on it. I'll give it a go as well if this one doesn't have the power.

Just arrived, looked like new to me ... had some charge ran continuously for about 5 mins before it ran out of cutting power... did a nice job, plenty of power, a lot easier to use than a plug in.
Very happy, charging now, hoping for a bit more action when its been charged over night.

blueribb 05-24-2013 08:29 AM

Mine arrived in a plain white box but looked brand new. Assembly took a couple minutes and I left it charge for a full 24 hrs. It works great for light duty trimming but forget about edging. I bought a refurb B&D Edge Hog that does that job quite well. Walmart sells a 2-pack B&D string/spools for $9.75 so I picked up a pack.

atari 07-22-2013 09:31 PM

My battery won't charge anymore.
