I think it is ok and the strimmer is working well. A very fast service from tooled-up.

Cannot fault either tooled-up or the item purchased - very fast delivery, & the item is ideal. It takes some punishment (i.e. it's very strong). The line does not break off when hitting stones etc.

This is a well-made and well-designed tool with plenty of power for garden use. The power output can be adjusted easily if required. The balance is good and can be modified by sliding the handle. It is not too heavy though my wife is not too certain about that. The head rotates easily for edge trimming, which it does very well though i don't find the the spring-out guide very useful for this purpose. The 36v 20ah battery charges in an hour and is very easy to fit and remove both from the tool and the charger. The line is robust and 2 spare spools are provided. It is more expensive than some cordless strimmers, but worth the money i think.

Strimmer arrived by mail delivery van on the exact day and time notified. the previous strimmer which was also a black & decker and died on me this year after about 20 odd years. the new one is a modern version of original but disappointed that length of cable was shorter than original and need to keep pulling along extension reel and i will need to cut off plug and fit a 2 pin extension plug to make cable longer. other than this i am very pleased and expect it to last as long as old one.

Customer Questions & Answers

Nigel Groves asked on 22/04/2021

Q : Is there a 2mm dia line spool available for the STC1820PC ? I am considering buying an STC1820PC but know from experience that 1.5mm line is not robust enough for our garden. Thank you

TooledUp answered on 23/04/2021

A : Hi Nigel, most cordless grass trimmers are only designed to use a specific line diameter, and can't generally be "upgraded" to a thicker line unless specified in the manual. So you'd probably want to look at an alternative machine ideally - if you want to stay in the Black & Decker 18v platform I think the only option currently is the 54v STC5433PC that we stock on product code 21003768. Although this uses a bigger battery and charger, the batteries are also backwards compatible with the Black & Decker 18v range so it wouldn't be a complete departure. However, if you're just looking for any grass trimmer which will take 2mm line there are plenty of options on the market - more commonly in corded electric machines like the Black & Decker GL9035 but there are also cordless options like the DeWalt DCMST561.

Stephen Micallef asked on 02/08/2020

Q : Hi, does this spool also fit the B&D 430 please? Much appreciated! KR Steve

TooledUp answered on 03/08/2020

A : Hi Steve, not according to the compatibility list we have - HOWEVER, the Gl430 is a much older model and it may be that Black & Decker have simply stopped referring to it in their product support documentation. I can see it being listed as compatible on some other websites which makes me think there's a good chance it will indeed fit but unfortunately I'm not able to verify this myself!

Gregory Axtell asked on 09/06/2020

Q : I'm confused. I purchased 4x A6481 spools for my GLC3630L strimmer based on your Q&A confirming this is the correct pool with 1.6mm line equivalent to .065". However, printing on the pack states it is only 1.5mm which reports suggest is too thin resulting in excess usage. Please clarify if this 1.5mm line is really suitable for my machine.

TooledUp answered on 10/06/2020

A : Hi Gregory, I can confirm that the A6481 spool is what Black & Decker specifically recommend for the GLC3630L, as you should be able to see in the manual provided with your machine, or on their website. I'm afraid I can't explain the disparity between the stated measurements though - you will see on their website they list it as 1.6mm diameter, so I'm not sure why this is different on the packaging you have received. Bear in mind this is only a 0.1mm difference which would be practically invisible to the naked eye, and they may have simply rounded down the figure to make it easier to identify and remember. As long as it says A6481 on the packaging you should be all good but you could always try contacting Black & Decker's product support department if you want more clarification?

Nick Bullough asked on 28/05/2020

Q : Can you confirm if this fits the B&D GLC3630L20 which I purchased from you as some reviews say the feed is to quick but I think they were 1.5mm dia and this is 1.6mm. Thanks

TooledUp answered on 28/05/2020

A : Hi Nick, this question has already been answered a couple of times in the Q&A but to confirm, yes- this is the recommended replacement spool for the B&D GLC3630L20 - you'll probably notice an instruction on the spool cap fitted to the machine which says to use 0.065" line, which is 1.6mm in metric

Kevan Rudling asked on 20/05/2020

Q : Is this for the GLC3630l20?

TooledUp answered on 20/05/2020

A : HI Kevan, yes -this is Black & Decker's recommended replacement spool and line for the GLC3630l20

John Hill asked on 15/05/2020

Q : is this compatible with a black and decker st 5530 strimmer if not what does. Thanks John

TooledUp answered on 15/05/2020

A : Hi John, yes, this question was already answered below in fact - the A6481 is the spool Black & Decker recommend for use with the ST5530

nayar asked on 08/05/2020

Q : Is this compatible with Besta530 B&D strimmer?

TooledUp answered on 10/05/2020

A : Hi Nayar, yes - the A6481 is suitable replacement spool & line for the Black & Decker BESTA530

Mant asked on 17/04/2020

Q : Is A6481 the correct spool and line for STC1820p? Many thanks

TooledUp answered on 20/04/2020

A : Hi there, yes that's correct

Charlotte asked on 15/04/2020

Q : Hi, can I ask if this is compatible with the GL575C please? Thank you

TooledUp answered on 15/04/2020

A : Hi Charlotte, it looks like you would need an A6480 spool for the GL575C. We can't supply that part any more but we do stock an ALM equivalent on Product ID 21018984

Fanny Cattran asked on 14/04/2020

Q : Hi there, you say this line is suitable for GLC3630L20, however it says on my strimmer only use .065 line?

TooledUp answered on 14/04/2020

A : Hi Fanny, they have provided the imperial measurement (0.065" is 1.6mm) If you could get 0.065mm diameter trimming line it would of course be absolutely tiny :)
