If you are looking to 'break into' the 18 volt lawn tool area, it might be worth the trouble. I hope you find two, because it only comes with one battery, and it's not a true 20V:

Maximum* initial battery voltage (measured without a workload) is 20 volts. Nominal voltage is 18.

In addition, the battery is small and proprietary. You would trim a few bushes and wait for it to charge.

If you already have a drill or small tool combo from another make, Ryobi, Kobalt, etc., then it would be better to just get a matching bare trimmer for not much more money.

I bought one of these for $21 about a month ago, it works much better than I thought it would. It is lighter than my greenworks stuff and runs for at least 30 mins of probably 80% use. I think it is definitely worth it at that price. It is a little weird to just have the one B&D tool, but I find myself grabbing it for quick touch up trimming. Does not feel super high quality, but I figure it's cheap enough I don't care if it fails in a couple years.

How about this inverse statement?
If you have other 20V B&D tools, this is a very nice addition, and gets you another battery.

This tool is one of many in the line I have, and as another user above stated, it has a very good run time on the 20V B&D smaller battery it comes with.

Your suggestion is anyone with several of any particular branded battery operated line, should stay within it to have the ability to swap out batteries. That goes without saying. No one prefers to deal with several different proprietary brands of battery operated tools.

However this deal is completely worthwhile even if you have no other B&D tools which take this battery. The tool is a good one. It has in fact had plenty of juice to trim my bushes with more to spare with the battery. The sweeper tool lasts much less on the same battery compared to this. I was pleasantly surprised.

As far as the issue of true nominal voltages under load vs stated, this is the first I've seen of that issue, so it raises my curiosity.
Are you stating that all the other major brands live up to their stated voltages under loads?
I see your point if it isn't an industry wide thing. So I am hoping you are only bringing it up because B&D is doing this surreptitiously, while it is not the norm for any (or the majority) of other brands.

Thus a small 5 cell battery has 5x3.6 = 18 volts, and is quoted as that by Ryobi and others. In years past and with other hobbies, you see 3.6 volts, 7.2 volts, 14.4 volts, etc., you see a pattern yet? That the initial voltage is 4 or 4.2 is inconsequential and not made part of the branding of other brands. I can only assume it was done to dupe someone into thinking "20 is better than 18".

A large cell would have 5x2 cells in a series x parallel fashion to offer more capacity, hence it's "bigger". The included battery is obviously small according to the picture.

$21 is a great price for someone who already has other tools in the line, congratulations! For someone just trying to get into cordless tools, there are other considerations.

Good stuff to know here. Repped. Knowledge is power. Knowledge of power is powerful too.

Nice find but not working for me with my store.

Has anyone recently bought this. I went to a store and Store Manager is not honoring the price even though the price says $21 online for in store pickup.

If recently bought, can you send me the picture of the receipt so that I can show them and ask for the same price?

Appreciate your help and thank you in advance.
