    The electric grass trimmer I bought last year just up and died on my (grrrrr). So once again I hit the on-line reviews to decide whether to buy gas, electric or battery and then to pick one. I already have a battery-operated B&D, but it's quite old, not too powerful and the battery only lasts an hour. "Quite old" is the key - it has lasted through many seasons. So I took a shot at this electric B&D, encouraged by reviews but worried about the string feeding. WOW! Once I got going and actually read the directions about loading the string cartridge, I couldn't have been more satisfied! This trimmer is lightweight, works fantastically (I trim approximately 1/2 acre of weeds), feeds line properly, and I think it's well worth dealing with the 100' cord! Thank you Walmart and Black & Decker!

    I recently purchased this item and have used it twice, the first was for a pretty intensive round of yard work - my old trimmer died after 30 years and I took the time to carefully research various products. After three weeks with no trimming or edging, the new machine got a good workout. I bought this model because of the customer ratings and my own experience with B&D products. It's light and powerful and easy to handle and works very well. It remains to be seen how it will perform over time, but most of my B&D tools have been very durable. I don't know how long a line spool will last but there's plenty of line left on the spool after the first two uses. Replacements are reasonably priced at two for $9.95 and it's also possible to replenish the spool with bulk line.

    I bought this almost a year ago, I saw it got such great reviews so I decided to give it a try instead of a gas powered one....this trimmer is worthless, unless your entire yard can be done in <15min. I charged the batteries as the instructions said to but even with a full charge it won't even do 1/2 my front yard. My yard isn't even that big but it takes me days to do it all because the battery runs out in about 15-20min with a full charge, then it won't cut anything, just push it down. Then I have to take the time to change batteries, wait 8 or more hours for the other one to fully charge....and about 3-4 days later or more I can finish the yard. I don't see how this got such great reviews. I am going to get a gas powered one so I can actually finish my yard in 1 go. It is not worth the hassle of short battery life and looooooong charging time. Just get a gas powered one, it will end up cheaper when you compare 1/2 a tank of gas to the electricity it takes to charge these batteries.

    I found this product to be easy to use. I used to own a B & D yard trimmer in the past and I liked it a lot, so purchasing another one was easy because the old one was a great help to me in order to maintain the yard. It's easy to use and works great, not complicated at all, easy to reload the string again when it runs out and the weight is good for me, and I also like the telescopic handle

    I am a single woman with a huge yard! I have tried gas trimmers and battery operated trimmers and have very bad luck with them. I can never get the gas one started and the battery one dies to early and doesn't have a lot of power. But today I broke down and bought this trimmer and it is awesome! It has plenty of power to trim my overgrown yard. The only reason I gave it a 4 is because the extension cord keeps falling out of the plug on the trimmer so that is an easy fix with some DUCK TAPE! and I will be off and running again. I am very pleased with this long overdue purchase.

    • A. Nope, this is a plug-in machine. I did not have good luck with 18 volt batteries in my other Black & Decker trimmer, they only lasted about 15 minutes and were 30-to 40 dollars each to replace. The 5.5 amp Black & Decker costs less than 2 18 volt batteries and has much more power than the battery powered Black & Decker.
