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.
