Black & Decker 18v Grass Strimmer

The Black & Decker 18v Grass Strimmer is designed to be lightweight and flexible. This Strimmer tackles the toughest areas in a little amount of time. Using technology, it facilitates the trimming process and increases the productivity of the user. Can be used for a variety of tasks including trimming excess grass growing against a wall, fence, flowerbed or pathway to give lawn borders a neat and tidy finish. Or, awkward areas around hedges, fences and trees, as well as tall overgrown foliage, which are difficult to reach by hand and it is tricky normally to get a consistent cut length.

E-Drive Technology

The high torque gear system gets the job done faster through an improved rate of cut. The motor also gives stall free cutting during even the toughest of jobs, making trimming feel easier and faster. A recurrent Black & Decker technology, E-Drive ensures the power and intelligence of the Black & Decker product in order to fulfill various tasks.

Efficient Cutting System

The efficient E-Drive motor and NiCd battery will allow the Black & Decker 18v Grass Strimmer to cut up to 1500 metres in one charge, depending on the density of foliage. This gives the user the confidence to start a job without having to pause to recharge constantly.

Cord Free Cutting

The Black & Decker 18v Grass Strimmer gives the user total access to their garden without the need for extension cables, making all those difficult to reach places a thing of the past. In addition, by using the Black & Decker 18v Grass Strimmer there is no danger of being tripping on or accidentally cutting through the cord, increasing the safety of using it. The Black & Decker 18v Grass Strimmer is both lightweight and has a telescopic shaft and dual handle for easier maneuverability, increased balance and comfort. This is particularly useful when using a garden strimmer for long periods; giving the user steady control of the cutting machine without getting tired.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hoped it would go longer on a charge? 30 Jun 2011
By TidusD
This is lightweight, absolutely ideal for picking up and using on a whim. It feels fun to strim and not at all like a chore. Well I enjoy it. I got it to supplement a petrol strimmer as my garden is quite extensive and the petrol trimmer did feel like a chore, It wasn't just the weight it was the whole starting malarky. I'll get better I know but I had to rely on a friend to start the old thing, With this it's really simple. A quick slot in of the battery and you are away.
I did feel it didn't last long but I did get it when the petrol trimmer was having a bad patch, so I was relying on it to do too much probably. Its also surprisingly simple to sort out the lie feed, it's just so simmple it's not really an issue.
To be fair though it did the lawn eventually and I didn't find it found the woody stalked weeds too much pressure like some reviewers. Highly recommended from me, gardening doesn't feel as tedious when you are using this and its easy to keep on top of the lawn once its done. xx

4.0 out of 5 stars Handy but lightweight. 27 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase
Like another reviewer, I purchased this strimmer to replace a petrol one: I got so fed up with problems starting the thing, problems with the tap-feed line system, it was harder work than the gardening itself!
So, this B&D strimmer assembles easily and the slip-out battery is no problem to charge. The auto-feed line is wonderful, you dont have to think about it, which is great.It is adjustable in length and the handle is adjustable also, which makes for a more comfortable working session.
However, when it comes to cutting power, the difference really shows. I guess if you want to maintain an already established lawn it would be fine:however I got mine to attack an unkempt and overgrown patch of garden and it really isnt up to the task. Perhaps I am asking too much (though the advertising implies this is more of a heavyweight machine...)but it made very hard work of knee-high grass, wouldnt go through taller nettles and other weeds, and the battery only lasted about 15 mins of hard work.
Once everything is in order I think this strimmer would come into its own: being cordless its no trouble to whip out and spend 10 mins tidying up. But for substantial work it just isnt up to the job.

Verified Purchase
This is well worth the money. Great for my front and back yards, just leave it on charge the night before. Its powerfull enough, and you can cut long grass with it, just start from the top. No mess with cables or anything, easy to clean.

5.0 out of 5 stars great product 8 Dec 2011
really pleased with this I also own a Bosch with the plastic blades and they are both excellent in different ways,for the coarser grass the Bosch is best but for general strimming the Black and decker is more useful

5.0 out of 5 stars Black & Decker GLC1825N 18V Cordless Strimmer 1 Jun 2011
By woody
Verified Purchase
The is by far the best cordless on the market. I had it to replace one of the Flymo models and it is far better with longer strimming time on a standard charge.
The build quality is very good, with well thought out operations in both strimming and edging modes.
Buy this strimmer with confidence,that you are going to get a first class bit of equipment at a very attractive price from Amazon

5.0 out of 5 stars Performs above my expectations. 12 July 2011
I bought this to trim around trees and the borders of the lawn, not to clear heavy brush. It performs well and is easy to use. It's important to read the manual and follow the battery charging instructions. I charged the battery overnight and the strimmer ran for 20 minutes continuously without stopping. It began to slow down at 20 minutes, and anyway my arms were getting tired so that's a good time frame for me. It cuts better than my last strimmer and the string is self feeding and easy to use. I found it ergonomically pleasant, well balanced to hold. Really pleased with my purchase.

Very pleased with the strimmer. Battery charge does not last quite as long as expected. Area slightly too large perhaps.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good garden tool
This is a far better way to deal with edges than lugging a heavy cord around. Charges up fairly quickly and one charge does all round the garden with some left. Read more
