    Best Trimmer Yet

    I have always used a gas trimmer and after having problems keeping my recent purchase of a (Weed Eater) running properly, I gave up and purchased the battery operated Black and Decker Grasshog. Let me just say "I love it". They couldn't make it any easier. Just pop in a charged battery and you are on your way to a nice trimmed lawn. I have a fenced in yard and I was able to do it all on 1 and a half batteries and that was with tall grass. You can't go wrong with this purchase.

    I bought this just yesterday with some trepidation after reading bad reviews of these battery trimmers, but thought that if it didn't work for me, then it must be a piece of junk, which I was pleasantly surprised to find otherwise. We have a modest house on a quarter acre, and trimming is the driveway, walkway, around a planter in front, and all the way around the fenced in back yard. Not a ton, but I figured I'd be happy if the two batteries included were sufficient. Turns out they were more than. I charged both batteries for over 8 hours and didn't even use up one completely for the whole job, front and back. I must say I love the instant-on, no-mess electric deal without having to mess with an extension cord, and if I ever get any other Black and Decker 18V tools, I can use my batteries with them. This isn't the product for you if you've got a huge yard or are whacking through an acre of weeds, but for the normal middle-class house with average trimming needs, this is the perfect trimmer.

    Good cut . . . Terrible Batteries

    I've owned this product for one year. I use it on approx 4/10ths of an acre with a medium amount of trimming needed. I use it every other week. At first I made it through with having to change to the second battery just as I was finishing up. By the tenth use, I was using both batteries; and now, in my second year with less than 20 uses, I have to recharge the first battery after it runs out in order to finish after the second runs out. I've tried running them all the way down in order to get a full charge with only limited extra power. Be advised that this trimmer cuts quite well on full power and that longer lasting batteries are available at upwards of $70 a piece. This not just a B'n'D problem. I have purchased other 18 volt tools with similar results.

    THE BEST TRIMMER I HAVE EVER OWNED

    I have used this trimmer weekly and love it. I have always owned gas trimmers but this battery operated one is by far my #1 pick! Love it because it is so light weight. No yanking on a cord or primeing to get it to start. Does not make the annoying, blaring noise a gas one does and it has not fallen apart like the WEED EATER gas trimmer I bought last year and only used a few times!!

    Great Trimmer--Until Handle Snaps Off

    This is an excellent and fairly lightweight rechargeable trimmer/edger, as far as capability goes. But if you have a lot of sidewalk areas to edge, you will run out of power before you finish. I have bought two of these Grass Hog trimmers but will not be buying a third. The adjustable handle on the top side of the unit, where most people hold the trimmer with their left hand, is made of plastic. It is attached to the main trimmer shaft with a plastic sleeve, and can be adjusted/tightened with a plastic bolt. After using the trimmer for about one year, the plastic handle snapped off in my left hand on both trimmers, rendering it all but useless. The warranty already expired, so no recourse for me. Two hundred bucks down the drain in two years. Surely B&D has rec'd complaints about this design flaw. This handle, sleeve and bolt should be made from aluminum, not hard hollow plastic! So, I'm off to Wal-Mart for the third staraight summer to buy a trimmer. This time I'm going with a gas Poulon that has a sturdy aluminum/metal handle.

    • A. I bought the Black & Decker BDFC240 9.6V - 24V Multi Battery Charger for faster charges when the charger died on my B&D 18v blower. It is well worth the money spent, especially since I now have the blower AND the weed eater. I also have a 12v B&D nailer that the charger charges.
