I have both of these tools and the batteries last for a while, I would guess 30-45 minutes. That's usually how long it takes for me to weedwack my yard. They don't take long to charge either. The trimmer edges really well with clean, straight lines because it's not overpowering like gas trimmers. The blower, or sweeper as they refer to it, is strong enough to get rid of grass clippings left on your sidewalk or driveway. It's not made to blow leaf piles.

Nice. Looking for a blower + hedge combo to buy though. Already have the trimmer (similar but different B&D version) and it works great.

Do you go through line like crazy on yours? I have a chain link fence and I can run through a whole roll in one session. My lot is less than 1,200 square foot. I wonder if mine is just broke somehow!

I bought this set at Walmart last weekend and returned it. When you have a gas powered trimmer and then try to move to a battery one there's just no comparison. It took me 5 minutes to do about 20' of the edge of my driveway with the battery powered trimmer. It took me 10 minutes to do the other side of my driveway, finish up the half of the driveway I didn't do with the battery powered one, weed eat along the road, go all through my backyard along the chainlink and wooden fences. Sadly the battery powered trimmer is WAY underpowered (IMO) as compared with a gas powered trimmer. I can't in good conscience recommend this set to anyone.

I have an LST420 and it is a great tool. Battery is the same as this one comes with and lasts a long time. It does OK for edging but only if you edge every other week. Much MUCH lighter than a gas variant and no fuel to worry about. Definitely not for heavy commercial work!

Keep in mind, these are not meant to rehab the 'south forty' landscape, rather they're light duty, no fuss no bother, quick cleanup hardscape and grass edge touch-up tools. I have gas and battery versions of both and find these indispenseible.

Btw, spend the extra $10. and change and get the extra battery. You'll be glad you did ...

Gotta be more careful

I got these last time they were on sale for the same price and I do have to say I am quite impressed. Battery life is decent but an extra battery is a must when using the weed wacker for more than 30 minutes. Im thinking the guy that goes through all the line must be a weed wacking amateur lol, but seriously I did my whole front and back yard and did not go through any noticeable line at all. No chainlink for me though, trees, mailbox, and wooden fence.

I understand, I feel the same way going from my Hemi Charger to my wife's jeep, could not recommend a Jeep in good faith.

JK....it's about what's best for the individual. Yes, gas powered is going to be a lil better than electric tools, we know that. This rechargeable combo is great for my aunt to do her yard and areas. Gas powered would be too much for her to handle and control. Heck, I have a huge yard and prefer rechargeable tools over gas.

I bought this same combo with the 18v niCad around 2011 and it just now failed. I can say that these tools have lasted years for me. I just stepped up to the Lithium tools this summer
and they work great.

No actually, the line lasts a couple seasons for me. I don't have to deal with any fences though, all grass, no heavy weeds. The only time my line wears down faster is from rocks in my landscaping or when I rotate the bottom and edge the sidewalk and driveway. I wonder if these trimmers can handle a thicker line. That may be a solution.

I'll say that this set works perfect for me. I guess it just depends what your needs are. I only trim grass on my 1/3 acre property and edge the pavement and it meets my needs just fine. It takes me 30-45 minutes and there is still plenty of battery left too.

I did the opposite of what you did. I bought a gas trimmer too, but because it was overpowering, I couldn't get a clean cut from edging along the sidewalk and driveway. It just cut way too sloppy and tore up my lawn. I returned the gas trimmer. I'm also glad to not have another separate 2-cycle gas container in the garage. I wouldn't recommend that someone buys this set to do heavy trimming say on a farm or large property but for an averaged sized house and lawn, it seems to work just fine.

Same here. The 18v NiCad batteries just quit holding a charge but lasted for about the same as you. I agree, no comparison between the 18v NiCAD and 20v Lithiums. The lithiums last so much longer, I just wish there was a meter to tell me the remaining battery power, like the Milwaukee tool batteries have.

I 100% agree with you with the meter, that would put it over the edge for me! Sounds like we are in the same boat with these tools, the right amount of power, speed and control.
