Read 38 Customer Review(s) for Black and Decker GL7033 Heavy Duty Grass Trimmer 330mm
I recently put in a new lawn with a patio slightly higher than the grass. This made it difficult to get to the edges with my lawn mower. This Trimmer with its two different angle functions has made my life so much easier and now and long uncut edges are a thing of the past thanks to this awesome trimmer.
Does job with ease very pleased
Great Trimmer for the money. Reasonably light so that I can use it, but still a substantial item. Quieter than I was expecting, over 20 years since I last had one. Copes well with longer grass. Easy to change from upright trimmer to edger. A good all round addition to my tools.
Very pleased with this powerful but lightweight strimmer. Easy to operate especially with the extending feature and rotating head for edging. It will cut through thin ivy and if used carefully, invasive irises. Love it...!
At first I was looking for a rechargeable strimmer but all the reviews were luke warm. In the end I went for this 700W wired strimmer and it is really good and glad I chose it. Prior to purchasing I had a pre-sales enquiry and found the sales team extremely helpful.
Very good strimmer, happy with purchase
I read many reviews before buying this strimmer. So I expected it to do the job. It works. It has plenty of power. It's well balanced. I like it. Can't wait for stuff to grow back :)
Bought to do medium to heavy bank trimming and did everything thing with ease was well on top of the workload, good machine and well priced from the supplier well pleased
Powerful and chops every thing down with no fuss
Only used once so far but seems as it should be. Perhaps a bit noisier than I'd hoped but overall pretty good. Good value , best price I could find. Two weeks delivery but not complaining because of the times we live in
Excellent in every way. Very powerful
Great service and product
I had a Black & Decker strimmer many years ago and was totally happy with it. After many years of good service, it needed replacing. I couldn't find the exact B&D model or even similar model. I ended up buying a model which wasn't B&D because it looked the most similar to my old strimmer . It turned out to be next to useless, I gave it away after only two uses. I searched and scoured the internet, comparing different B&D strimmers and eventually bought this one, the B&D GL 7033. It is brilliant and every bit, and even better, than my original B&D strimmer. It's easy to use, powerful and does a good job. It was important to me that it cut right up to the wall and fence panels, which this one does. It has two strimmer heads, which are easy to inter-change. The tougher head makes short work of nettles and other stronger weeds. I'm over the moon with it and is perfect for our third of an acre good sized garden. Highly recommended.
Up to now I've only used it once & I'm very impressed
Excellent Strimmer. Using 2mm auto-feeding cord or for tougher jobs the heavy duty cut lengths can be used. Well balanced as motor is in the handle. Makes edging easy. Great price from tooled up.
Speedy delivery, well packed and good performance so far. Thankyou
Great Product, Great Value, Easy to Use.
Excellent strimmer, quieter and more powerful than my old petrol one. Heavy duty wires work a treat cut through heaviest weeds and brambles.
First time using this strimmer. First class. Heavy duty line brilliant.
Very good product, very soon dispatched by tooled up
I bought this B&D strimmer last year but wanted to give it a good test over a few summer/autumn and spring months in really demanding conditions before submitting my review (how's 3-4 feet tall overgrowth for you?). I was looking for a heavy duty strimmer as my needs are more than the average gardener and wanted the HDL lines with a bit more grunt. Firstly, Tooled-up had the best price and the strimmer was dispatched and arrived quickly. Assembly was straight forward. I used the standard spool supplied and after an hour's use the line gave up the ghost. Then I installed the HDL line. Wow, amazing cuts through the thickest of grass, weeds and overgrowth like it wasn't there! Just take care and wear safety glasses and angle the head and distance to ground so that you don't damage or scalp your lawn! Believe me, this thing will strip anything in its path. It is relatively light weight and well balanced so using it for a couple hours is not a problem both in terms of the weight and of the motor performance. In general I am very pleased with the performance of this strimmer but take care when strimming near rocks, pavements, walls or any hard surface. Yes, there is a guide wheel but when the lines make contact with any hard surface...the hard surface wins and the lines wear out pretty quickly indeed. I would recommend the HDL line rather than the spool line. It is a quality product which I hope to use for many years to come.
I already own this product, so I purchased it from Tooled-up for a member of the family I have had no trouble with mine over the past 2 years, so when looking on the net Tooled -up came up with the right price. so if it is as good as the one I use, and they are both the same model he should be happy with this product I can not fault it.
First impression is good. Time will tell.
Much improved trimmer over our previous one, feels light while in use, trims very well but not used it for edging.
Huge design improvement on my previous (broken!) trimmer. Easy to use - I've tried both the normal and heavy duty spools. It cut a large area of rough grass/weeds on a steep banking in a relatively short time. Price for a heavy duty trimmer was excellent.
Only used it once but it did a great job.
Good product at a good price and excellent service.
Although described as heavy duty this trimmer is very well balanced and therefore compares favorably with less powerful and lighter models for ease of use. I have marked down the features a little. I am of modest height and would have liked the telescopic arm extension to be a little longer. The wheel for edging is a great idea and would be perfection if a guide were added to keep the wheel at a set distance from the border edge. The single line works extremely well and keeps to correct length automatically. It conveniently avoids the problems associated with trimmers using the two line system. The unspooled heavy duty accessory for dealing with tough vegetation seems stronger than line alternatives used on a previous petrol trimmer. Superb value for a quality built machine.
This strimmer is probably the best I have owned, and far better than some famous brands. Easy to assemble, easy to use, and easy to change spool heads - which was a nightmare with previous makes. Other reviews detail specific merits of the strimmer, and I agree with them all.
I have found that the grass strimmer is all that it says it is, reliable, robust and workmanlike.
It arrived very promtly which was great as my old b&d strimmer had finally died on me after 7yrs of service. i could feel the power straight away and was very impressed at how much it cut away before losing cutting line. i like the adjustable handle as i have back problems and its so easy to change position at the touch of a button. the orange edging tool i found a bit distracting not having one on my previous strimmer but its just a case of getting used to it. i really liked the 2.4mm heavy duty lines which came with it and they were very easy to change over from the ordinary spool and line. it feels very sturdy and well made and i hope i get as much usage out of this one as i did out of the last one. definately better to pay a bit extra than the others that were on sale but having said that it is excellent value for money and i would recommend it to friends and family. i only gave 4 stars for performance because im not used to the edging wheel yet but im sure once i am it would be a 5 star from me. all in all a very happy purchase.
Brilliant cuts through all lengths. Could do with some sort of handle to be able to hang up after use
Excellent machine so far in many ways. Ability to quickly convert from strimmers to edger brilliant. Very powerful so cuts through grass very easily. Motor on end of handle means good balance and easy to use.
Really love this grass trimmer - it is very powerful and made short work of the long grass at the back of the house - it is a bit larger than the other one we had so covered the ground much more rapidly. usual b&d features and build quality - came with a nice long lead and was very easy to to use - too soon to say about reliability but not expecting any issues.
Definately the best electric strimmer i have used and at the price it would be hard to beat. Powerful enough to tackle the most overgrown areas, easy to get under low things and gets right up to the edge against walls and fences even if they are overhanging. Very well balanced and comfortable to handle and easy to re-string without having to buy expensive refills.
Good product and powerful
Fast efficient service
Customer Questions & Answers
Q : Hi, Does the guide wheel at the front prevent you from strimming right up to the wall.
A : Hi Hugh, the guide wheel is designed to sit within the cutting radius so as long as the line is fed to its correct length you should be OK - however, you could come up against obstructions which might get in the way, depending on how perfectly flat and even the wall is, and whether there are any obstacles on or around it. If the line gets too short for whatever reason, you might also find it doesn't quite reach it any more.
Q : I can understand why Dave asked you whether the trimmer comes with a power cable because a read of the user manual you provide a link for does raise a doubt as to whether it comes with one as standard. (It never ever occurred to me that it possibly wouldn't.) So when you guys say they 'come with a power cable', is it already in the box when you guys receive the trimmer or are you providing the cable yourself separately? Also, how long (in metres) is the power cable?
A : Hi Malc, unfortunately as we're all working from home at the moment I can't go and check one in the warehouse but we don't add anything from this end so the cable is included in the box - as to whether it's fixed or in two parts I'm not 100% sure, but we've sold over 400 of them recently so if customers couldn't use them I'm sure we would have had a large proportion of those back by now! Black & Decker haven't published the length of it in their specifications so I'm hesitant to assure you what this is, but according to third parties it's around 12 metres (please note I can't verify this, and in most cases it's safe to assume you will need a suitable extension reel when using a corded grass trimmer)
Q : Hi, is the handle length adjustable, & what is max height from grond to handle, I'm over 6ft and have to bend over when using my old B&B
A : Hi Peter, unfortunately this model is not telescopic and although I don't have the exact dimensions it looks like you might have trouble with it going by the usage images supplied by Black & Decker. We do stock some telescopic grass trimmers and larger brush cutters which may be more appropriate?
Q : How is the line replaced ie can you buy line separately and wind on spool, or do you buy new spool. If the latter how much and what length of line on spool
A : The GL7033 can be used with standard line or with single use heavy duty lines. The heavy duty lines are simply swapped out when they need to be changed, but the standard spool can either be replaced in whole, or refilled if you're happy to wind on the line yourself. All available line is shown in the "Accesssories" section on the right of the product page.
Q : Hi can you please tell me, if one can attach Metal weed brush or blades to this product, instead of the line. Thanks
A : Hi, no this designed for use with line only but if you go to the Brush Cutters category (in outdoor power tools) these machines can all be used with metal blades as well as nylon trimming line.
Q : Does it come with a power lead? How does the strimmer wire extend?
A : Yes, all corded electric grass trimmers on our site come with a power cable. The Black & Decker AFS Automatic single line feed system extends the line automatically so under normal circumstances you don't have to do anything and it should replenish any broken line by itself.
Q : Hi, I am about to buy the Black & Decker grass trimmer but I am not sure whether the battery and charger is included in the sale price. Are they?
A : Hi Margaret, the GL7033 is actually a corded tool so runs off mains electricity. We do sell Black & Decker cordless grass trimmers - for example the one on Product ID 20988146 - and these are usually available either with or without a battery charger. In these cases you would just choose what option you want from the green drop down menu on the right. If it says "Voltage: 240v" (like it does on this model) it is a corded tool.
Q : hi where do u get the strimmer incert lines from. thanks, g kerr
A : Hi Gerald, you can see all the accessories we stock for this strimmer listed under "Accessories for this Product" on the right of the product page
