Light easy to handle too early to comment further
Having received both parts of the order after some delay, thru no fault of tooled up, I have used the strimmer and found it to be a great tool and would thoroughly recommend. I have yet to use the associated deck. It looks to be of fine quality and I expect it to work well. Watch this space! The cable is probably a little too short if you have a larger garden. However, nothing an extension cord won't sort. All in all a good tool. Regards, jay tee
The cable is too short and other trimmers have a better system for ensuring accurate edge trimming. Otherwise it is fine
Does what it says on the tin
It has been everything i have want with a grass trimmer. I especially like the wheel feature for edging. The trimmer is very robust and has a good feel about it.
I purchased this black and decker st5530 telescopic eletric grass and edging trimmer, to replace an older strimmer that i had. i have found this to be more powerful than my old strimmer, it has a fixed edging wheel, and can also be placed on a wheeled base to turn it into a lawn mower (3 in 1). also at the time i purchased replacement reels of cord that were on special offer, at the same time. excellent price tooled-up.Com on strimmer and accessories.
Powerful. It does the job very well. I have found that it uses a lot of line; much more than my old, less powerful, one. So, it's as well to search out good offers for replacement line to wind onto spare machine reels. In a 2 hour session (which is probably more than the average) i got through 3 "plus a bit" reels full. Having a pocket full of made up reels (enough for the task in hand) is recommended as it's a nuisance breaking off part way through a job. Goggles definitely needed as grit and suchlike shoot through the air at speed because of the power of the tool. It isn't possible to blink fast enough.
5 out of 5 !
Good quality, as I am quite tall great that it adjusts in height. Strong cord does the job.
This replaced my old, lower powered, b and d which burnt out after long use. I trim the headstones around my local churchyard and this higher powered model cut through the april fresh green grass like a knife through unrefrigerated butter. Compared to many battery or fuel operated trimmers this model is relatively lightweight and so i prefer to use an extension cable. I am very pleased thus far. There is just one niggle: compared to my old machine the manufacturer seems to have saved a few pence on the length of the cable; like many other manufacturers of items that require a fair length of cable. The length supplied on my machine is approx 6 metres. Since i use a very long extension cable in the churchyard anyway this is not so much of a problem for me but it's not so helpful in the domestic setting. I recommend a plug-in safety rcd adaptor (suitable for 2 or 3 core cables) and always wear safety goggles/spectacles. Both of these can be obtained from tooled-up.Com if you haven't already got them.
This is the next generation strimmer of the one i had preaveusly, the old strimmer was a good tool and this looks like it is as well the service your company gave me was quick and easy. i will do business with your company again
I have only put the trimmer together and tried it out on a little patch of grass. Seems to do everything it says on the packaging.
This is by far the best strimmer i have owned so far. the telescopic adjustment although limited is a good feature as it now means it can be adjusted to the correct height for my wife leaving me free to cut the grass. the auto feed thus far works well & the cut is very accurate when used for edging. all in all i would recommend this product as it is not overly priced.
You cannot go wrong with black and decker! After years of using cordless, i opted for a corded one. I was a bit concerned, but didn't need to worry at all. The trimmer is powerful, does the job really well, and that wheel guide is absolutely brilliant! I used an extension lead and had no problems reaching all corners of the garden! Definitely recommended!
The strimmer does what it is supposed to do, but i agree with other reviewers that the power lead is a "little on the short side." i have only had the strimmer a short while (just under a month) and so i cannot really comment upon the reliability but it certainly seems robust enough to give good service.
Really excellent trimmer! Quite surprised out how much time it saved me cutting the edges and pathways. The guide wheel is an excellent idea keeping the trimmer at a constant distance or height dependant on the orientation of the head. The build quality is very good as well with all parts well constructed and fitted together, seems like it should be robust to last a good few seasons. great price for the quality, might even invest in the accessory that allows you to use it as an mini mower for awkward places around the garden.
In general very pleased except power cable could be longer
This is much better than my rubbish bosch one. Solidly made, cuts well. so good so far
My old b&d finally packed after 30 years so i went for the same make and the quality is the same as my old one, very good. This is one of the more expensive ones on the market but well worth the extra cash. And tooled up has the best price on the web that i could find. Recommended.
This is a very robust, heavy duty strimmer with bags of power. For my needs - clearing pathways, drive, patio and some beds in a medium/large garden - it lacks the finesse for close work unless you have a really steady hand. On another site, reviewers have complained about the 6 metre lead - and I must agree that it is really far too short. I don't know if Black & Decker were trying to shave costs or whether they assumed that everyone would be buying an extension lead, but the decision to make the lead this short seems bizarre and unnecessarily cheese-paring. There is the option to use the tool as an edger - it's clumsy and not easy to handle, but if you manage to keep control it does work pretty well. When used in the orthodox position, you need to keep good care that you don't get too close to the earth, because it will cutup everything - soil, grass roots, stones, weeds etc. - and you may find that you have to patch up missing areas of grass.
Brilliant smooth delivery, even sent me a text to tell me when it was coming so i didn't have to wait in all day!The strimmer works great, just like a strimmer should do, meets all my expectations. Thank you so much for a super product.
This black & decker strimmer is the best i have ever owned. It is reasonably light and very easy to use. It comes with a spare spool of line but with the line already in, the spare is a bonus. I have used it a few times now and it is easy to follow a line as the wheel on it helps guide it around the edging and there is no chance of cutting into plants in the border. I will give it top rating on all counts and reccomend it to anyone wishing to purchase a strimmer and edger. it does exactly what the advert says and i find i pick it out of my shed plug in and in a few minutes my two lawns are edged with borders straight and not having to hope will it or wont it do what i want. I have already told my friends about it and will always sing the praises about it. It ia a pleasure to use. The price is very reasonable. I cannot find any fault with it.
Superb trimmer at the best price. And fastdelivery. It that good and easy to use even the wife can manage it, so go on spoil her
Not mastered the edging tool yet particularly near gravel but general strimmer easy to use, good light weight
This strimmer is amazing. It has the power of a petrol strimmer. cuts through overgrown grass and weeds without a problem. Best strimmer i have ever owned.
This strimmer replaced a very old black and decker and is much superior. It cuts well and does not seem to dig in like other strimmers. It is not too heavy, but the additional adjustable handle makes guiding it really easy. The edging wheel works well, and this is the first strimmer i have owned where you rotate the head to keep the handle the right way up while edging. A really good buy.
After buying two other useless strimmers I was beginning to think that there were not any good strimmers. This one proved me wrong. It is easy to use and it does what they say it does. I am more than satisfied with it and telling all my friends about how good it is.
First impressions suggest this will be a good machine for both strimming and edge cutting. The wheel makes edge cutting a breeze, though the line is used up at a rate of knots.
