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.

Pretty good so far, had 2 flymo cordless strimmers previously and both batteries failed within 2 years of light use so will never buy a flymo product again, only used this one twice so fingers crossed this will last far longer, seems well built and well made quality construction.
Good so far, great price and quick delivery and easy customer journey
Nice strimmer at a great price
Band D battery strimmer. Had one for years and it was getting tired. Looked on internet and this was by far the best value. The service was great and it arrived early. Already put it to use and it is great. Definitely recommend this company.
This was bought very easily from Tooled Up. Even in these difficult times the service was excellent (as always) and is highly recommended! This was bought to replace the same model of B&D 280mm strimmer that I had been using for over 2 years now - it was a very opportune time to buy it, as it was for Christmas! This strimmer performs very well, is well balanced and easy to use, which is why I chose it again (I already had several good lithium batteries and a decent charger). Its only weak point, if I have to mention one I experienced with the previous identical unit, is that the final mounting for strimmer head / gear train, being plastic, wears away after several years' reasonable use. This produces increased vibration, as the strimmer head starts to wobble, and eventually it would probably come loose. Hence just 4 stars for build quality - every thing else was very sturdy. (B&D may of course have inproved this aspect of the design - time will tell.)
I love this strimmer, light and easy to use and the wheel for doing edging is just great. So far so good.
First time ive used battery product. Effortless.
Very pleased with this strimmer. Excellent value for money as includes battery and charger. Fully charged within an hour, light and easy to use.
This is a new purchase only used twice. Up till now I am very happy with its performance. It is much lighter than my previous petrol strimmer with far less vibration, and is extremely easy to use. I am very pleased with my purchase.
Early days, but it is light and easy to use, and Black and Decker tools are as a rule pretty good.
I bought this as a present for a short & slightly built female. The weight & ease of use of this model has proved to be ideal for everything she has done with it so far. Had clear instructions , charged in exactly the time suggested, is well made & perfect weight whether holding downwards or higher up. She says it's great value for money & would recommend it.
This trimmer is light in weight so not fatiguing in use, and plenty of power for my needs.I now have three tools in this range and have been very satisfied with each one. Good to know that replacement batteries are readily available unlike previous similar purchases. A faster charger would be very welcome though. I would happily recommend this tool.
Bought this to take advantage of the two B+D 18V batteries that I already have from a power drill. The grass trimmer works fine in lower power mode, the high power mode is a handy option for dense areas which I don't find the need for very often. The guide wheel for use in edging makes the job a lot easier. The telescopic body also helps maintaining a good posture whilst in action. Overall, the unit is sturdy with decent finishing. Happy with the purchase.
Great little strimmer for light work. I have a petrol strimmer for the hard stuff and also have an electric flymo, but I reckon I will use this more. Its just more convenient -no cables and no starting or running problems. It goes through the battery in about 15 mins but I have spares from my drills, so not an issue for me. I would advise having a spare if you have anything but a small garden. I have a fairly big garden and you can get a lot of grass and tree edging done in that time. The petrol strimmer really damages tree bark, even the electric harms the apple trees, this doesnt so ideal for what I wanted. I was pleasantly surprised at not one single line break (nightmare with a petrol strimmer) -probably because its not spinning as hard as a petrol. That saved a lot of time and annoyance. Nice length adjustment and swivel for vertical/horizontal cutting too. Some complain the wheel gets in the way but I didnt find it an issue at all. Very pleased with it.
I bought one of these for myself and my son ask to use it because his was broken, he was shuff to bits with it, he said it was so light also easy to use so he ask me to order one for him and I know how light and easy it is myself because I am 80 years old
Great strimmer. Much better than a Gtech. Might need a spare battery for big gardens.
I bought this strimmer as I needed something lightweight and it is fine for what I want. Its not heavy and the handle adjusts to make it comfortable for different areas you might want to work on. I bought an extra battery which is useful as I know I will have time to complete what I want without running out of battery. I would recommend getting two batteries.
Recommend this Grass Trimmer. It is really powerful.
An excellent tool which is easy to use and works efficiently.
Good machine reasonably priced does what it claims to do
Brilliant strimmer Excellent value for money Easy to use
Used it twice, to date, and found it well up to the task. The ‘boost’ feature is a useful option, as is the peripatetic battery, for use in other B&D power tools.
Good product. Easy to assemble, lightweight to use. Very useful having two power levels.
It is battery powered so not as strong as plug-in models. Still for small garden, it is all I need. Only criticism is that I am 6'1" so for me handle is a bit short.
Good piece of kit. Already having the required batteries made it a no brainer. Does the job of any corded strimmer.
Easy to set up, although it took a while to charge the battery initially. Easy and efficient to use. Needs something to say when the battery is about to run out - flashing light/beep? If I were taller it may be a bit short for me, I'm 5 foot 8 inches.
Speedy delivery. Product lightweight, charge lasts 40 mins. Very happy with purchase
Great service ideal no wires ease of use around the garden
Super product and serves my requirements.
Great way to buy this strimmer without the battery as I already owned one. Seems quite powerful and the battery last at long enough for all my tasks.
Lightweight strimmer which I bought for work when the petrol one would be 'over the top'. There is a technique to getting it to cut longer grass/weeds, but the Turbo feature is excellent.
Typical B&D, not a bad useful tool. Only used it once so to early to give thorough review. Delivered a week earlier than quoted.
It’s ok fit for purpose
Very disappointed that the trimmer only came with a 0.4amp charger that takes 5 hrs to charge the battery. When I ask if I could change it for a 1amp charger I was refused. Would not buy from TooledUp again.
Customer Questions & Answers
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.
