I have used a few of these and hate them. The one I have currently looks identical to this but different brand. I assume same manufacturer. They are handy for small spots near the house or around a building with an outlet.

If you're going to be trimming at the end of your driveway frequently (like mailboxes and sidewalks), get a battery or gas powered.

$15 is a deal, just make sure your expectations are inline with reality.

This you drag the power cord. Not that big a deal really. Cheap and not having to wait for the battery to charge. Peace

I love mine. Don't have to worry about getting gas or recharging. It's especially great for small yards. Get it!

Ok for lefties, piece of junk if you're not. Serious design flaws!

I used a corded trimmer for a few years. Absolutely hated it. Underpowered (like most corded trimmers are), and dealing with the cord is a real hassle, especially when you're trying to avoid chopping the cord with the trimmer and maneuvering around shrubs or trees. If you don't want to deal with a gas trimmer, get a battery one. I did and never looked back.

Go for it. If you have a small backyard you should be fine with corded one.

I have a 1/4 acre, part lawn and used a gas trimmer for years. I really hated the noise it made, the oil changes, fueling, the smell, etc etc. It did the job though.

I eventually relented and went through several battery models.... often the battery packs seem to always begin to fail after the very limited warranty period....or not be dead enough to warrant a replacement.

I ended up with my dad's 20+year old electric corded trimmer. It's a craftsman I think, but all the labeling has long since rubbed off.

I edge my 100ft driveway, fences, plantings, etc.... Yes the cord is bulky to move around, requires the occasional big tug to pull a chunk of it closer to me, but other than that I've had no issues.

Easy to start(just plug in and pull trigger), no oil/fuel to change, no batteries to charge or run out of charge. I just go and go.


I'm sure this trimmer may not be the best, but give it a try if you''re needing a sting trimmer.
It's only 4.2amp, which makes it lightweight, but not a lot of power... but for most, that's not the issue.

Darn. Just purchased the cordless black and decker about 2 weeks ago for $45. For this cheap of a price, i would go corded since I already have a corded mower.
