Black and Decker STC1820PC 18v Cordless Grass Trimmer 280mm
Battery AH Explained
The best way to describe battery amp hour is that this is effectively the size of your fuel tank, the more amp hours your battery has then the longer the battery will last between charges. More amp hours does not increase the power of a given tool.
Battery Voltage Explained
A tool with a higher voltage than another is a bit like choosing an engine in a car, the higher voltage will generally mean higher power & performance. As with cars though a bigger engine does not always translate to better performance so it is important to compare the specifications of tools at different voltages between different manufacturers.
Black & Decker 18v System
The Black & Decker 18v Li-ion System is a range of 18v tools where all 18v batteries of all ah ratings fit all tools, allowing you to buy just a few batteries but as many of the range of bare tools that you need without the expense of a new batteries and chargers each time.

Nice light machine for small to medium gardens
Recommended by a close friend. I'm pleased with this item, especially that it's cordless.
This grass trimmer surprised me with its running time. Far more than I thought I would get. The trimmer is easy to hold and operate. At times I was not convinced the line was feeding and I manually increased its length. For the price this is a good product, though the replacement line is expensive. However, in hours of strimming I still have ample line left on the original spool. I have been impressed with the cutting power of this machine.
This is ideal for me to use in our garden, too speeds to handle the tougher areas and lightweight, unlike the heavy petrol strimmer. Makes keeping a tidy garden a lot easier.
Not quite as powerful as I had hoped, but adequate for the tasks that I want.
An addition to my growing Black and Decker Cordless tools. I find them excellent value for money and well built
Bought to replace my B&D corded strimmer which lasted years but finally died. Nice & light & good not to have a cable to worry about Lawn edger is a good idea
Really robust strimmer that performs very well. Battery power seems really good and charging very quick. Good product
We got this mainly due to the cordless feature, so far the battery has lasted longer than expected having read previous reviews. I’m not a serious gardener and so it works great for what I need but I suspect you’d need something more robust (petrol powered) if the terrain was more challenging. Overall, more than happy with it.
Happy with the product but disappointed with the battery as it runs out of power MUCH quicker than I had hoped.
Superb tool, typical Black and Decker Quality, the auto line feed and cordless aparatus make strimming so much easier. Great price and service from Tooled-Up complimented what as turned out to be a great purchase.
This his a good quality product, simple and easy to use and highly recommended.
This is a good strimmer which works well. It is a little bit heavy. The battery lasts a reasonable time when fully charged.
Only used it a couple of times and results have been very good. Sometimes have to encourage cable to feed. Don’t know how long battery lasts because has still been going strong when finishing job in excess of 30 minutes at low power.
Bought this as we have other B&D cordless devices so makes sense to have multiple batteries to utilise. Very pleased so far.
Excellent product, not too heavy and feels sturdy.
Very light & easy to work with. Copes well with short, fine grass but anything thicker is more of a challenge. Has 2 speeds, Normal & Turbo. Turbo works better for longer grass & is faster. The auto feed for the line works very well although I have no idea how long the line will last. Battery on Turbo lasts 15 minutes. It takes 4 hours to charge from flat. Have not tried the edging wheel. I find I have the machine fully extended to be a comfortable length to work with so very tall people may find it a bit short. A good strimmer on the whole for lawns or short grass.
Very pleased with perchase , have used it a few times and I love the ease of use, I highly recommend
Great trimmer. I was surpised of the sturdyness of the trimmer. Battery lasts long enough to do the back & front gardens. A well made quality product.
It's great my garden was knee high in grass and weeds and now its not!

Customer Questions & Answers
Q : How is it with cutting weeds?
A : It depends what you mean by weeds really - these types of machine (especially the 18v cordless battery powered ones) are primarily designed for cutting grass, though they obviously won't differentiate between weeds and grass, up to a point. However the tougher stuff will cause it to jam frequently and will place a lot more demand on the machine, so it might be wise to step up to something more heavy duty if you'll be doing more than just lawn edging. For especially overgrown areas, a brush cutter is what you'd normally use - these are designed to be used either with trimming line, or a solid blade, which will slice through tough stems without issue.
Q : Batteries and charger not supplied so what do they cost
A : All compatible batteries and chargers we stock are listed in the "accessories for this product" column on the right of the page - however, note that this is available with or without batteries and charger - you just need to select the appropriate kit you require from the green drop down menu before adding it to your basket
Q : Whats the guarantee with it is it 1yr or 2
A : Hi James, the STC1820PC has a 2 year guarantee - you can find the warranty information for any item on our website if you scroll down to the "More Help" section at the bottom of the page
Q : How does the automatic feed work?
A : I don't actually know the mechanics behind it but I've got the 36v version with the same type of line feed and the only time I ever notice there's no line deployed is on the odd occasion where the end whips around and jams back inside the hole. Other than it always feeds it by itself (somehow).
Q : Kindly advise where B & D are manufactured. Thanks
A : Hi Jeremy, I believe they actually have manufacturing facilities in several different countries but I'm sure the bulk of manufacturing and assembly will be done in China.
Q : I note you only sell this product with the 2ah battery, can you confirm if it will work well with the 1.5ah battery or would this be underpowered?
A : I can confirm that this will work with the BL1518 1.5ah battery. The ah rating is the amount of storage and not power.
Q : Can I use a bigger battery ?
A : I can confirm that power wise this is only compatible with Black and Decker 18v batteries, however, capacity wise, Black and Decker do manufacturer 18V batteries in the following capacities 1.5ah: BL1518. 2ah: BL2018. 4ah: BL4018.
