Editor's Notes & Price Research

Written by

This operates with a 40-volt Li-ion battery that cuts up to 1.75 miles on a single charge. Its variable speed trigger allows you to customize speed and power to your liking, while its wrap around handle simplifies the edging process. You can even reach those hard-to-reach places with the help of its straight shaft.

Comparing apples to apples, you're getting a combo unit and this isn't one. The way better combo unit is this one.
https://www.homedepot.com/p/RYOBI-40-Volt-Lithium-Ion-Cordless-Brushless-String-Trimmer-Jet-Fan-Blow... [homedepot.com]

Yes, it's $40 more than what you paid but both the trimmer and blower are brushless and the trimmer has the feature for multipurpose use by changing attachments. The Ryobi ecosystem is the largest out there so there's a strong likelyhood of getting something else with the same 40v batteries. With the Black and Decker, not so much. Build quality on B & D has not been good for a long time. If you really are set on both the trimmer and blower, perhaps you should look at another thread here:
https://slickdeals.net/f/13178503-ryobi-40v-trimmer-blower-chain-saw-deals-and-alot-more-home-depot-...
Yes, again more money but you get the 2 40v batteries that alone cost north of $100.

As far as this deal, I think Kobalt it's a very good deal and this trimmer will work for you. However, the line they provide breaks easily. Just buy better line and it'll work fine. Oh and one more thing I forgot earlier, I'm not a fan of the auto feed feature in string trimmers. I think it wastes alot of line and prefer to do so manually.

That's my 2 cents.

This is available tool only for $67 and the battery is ~$72. This is the first time I've seen the kobalt 40v on sale anything close to this. I don't have the string trimmer yet, but I have 5 blowers, hedge trimmer, snow thrower, and mower from this system and like them pretty well. Have been watching for exactly this deal for months. Thanks!

What does edger capable mean? Is there an attachment that we need to buy separately or this same table can be used as edger?

The bottom section of the trimmer can be removed and replaced by other attachments, including an edger. TrimmerPlus is the brand lowes sells and here is the edger: https://www.lowes.com/pd/TrimmerP...nt/3353702 . They also make a brush cutter, hedge trimmer, blower, tiller/cultivator, sweeper, and pole saw: https://www.lowes.com/pl/Trimmerp...4294437038. I think they can be attached to most trimmers. Usually they say "attachment capable" instead of a specific one.

You sure about that? This has a coupler not a click attachment like the TrimmerPlus takes. So you need a special coupler attachment and I am not able to find any edger for this - all I see is a pole saw and a hedge trimmer. Example [lowes.com].

I see what you're saying and It looks like you're right that it doesn't take the trimmerplus attachments.

Got it for $73.83 with $10 off $50. Not bad. You could add something else to get it to $100 and use a $20 off if those are still a thing. Good deal.

I have the Kobalt 80v mower
[lowes.com] that came with charger and two 80v 2.0 amp batteries. Need to see if I could use those batteries and charger for this trimmer. Can someone provide insight?

Those will not work with this trimmer. 40V and 80V systems are incompatible.

Probably won't work as this is a 40v tool.
