It has come to my attention that a lot of things these days don't actually do what they claim to do. This strimmer however does. I it is fantastic. I have used it to strim a large area of unwanted vegetation for me to go over it with weed killer. Also used it to strim the grass that goes along the fence at the sides of our garden and it does these brilliantly. The rotating wheel is actually very useful. You just roll it along a fence of anything you want to strim up against something and it cuts it beautifully without you damaging the fence or the nylon wire. Speaking of which, the nylon wire blade thing whatever you want to call it, is very good quality. I did my entire garden with it without it going blunt of cutting itself off. It comes with a huge reel of it anyway. It is lightweight, has a great adjustable handle, its well made and very good value. It is very quite for a strimmer as well, doesn't scream like some I have heard. The cable could be a bit longer but if you have an extension lead which many of us who garden do, its not a problem. Black and decker stuff seems very good these days.

Having read all the previous reviews I ordered one. The strimmer was all assembled except for the guard and handle which were easy to fit. I then proceeded to cut my three lawns which had grown to about a foot high. The strimmer did the job. Very impressed. The cord didn't snap once and it was a pleasure to use. Highly recommended.

I nearly bought a strimmer from my local DIY store to replace my ancient model that had given up the ghost after many years of regular use.

Not really happy with the in-store ranges, I saw this model online and went ahead with a purchase. The reviews and price all seemed too good to be true, but the strimmer has so far exceeded all expectations. Really robust build quality but not too heavy like many alternatives. The 'wheel' makes edging effortless and accurate (I like the way it automatically adjusts the strimming speed for 'normal' or 'edge' strimming), the head angle is so quick and easy to adjust and the extendable length means you can set the reach of the strimmer to complement your height (no more stooping!).

Have yet to replace the strimmer cord, so hopefully that will prove to be quick and easy too! Overall though, this is an excellent value-for-money product.

Great tool, the addition of the wheel which I was concerned might be a bit gimmicky actually makes edging long sections of lawn really easy, it also helps keep a suitable distance when trimming against walls & fences. very simple to use, straight out of the box.

Amazing! We wanted as trimmer for our garden path. Our old one was a nuisance, line kept breaking. This one is so easy to use and the line hasn't snapped yet. Black and decker have listened to its customers and come up trumps. Well done B&D.....highly recommend for value and performance.

What a fabulous little strimmer. Absolute piece of cake to use. I swore off ever buying another strimmer that had a line feed because the line constantly breaks and I've never yet figured out how to properly fit a new one. (and I've bought several strimmers over the years just because of this very problem!).

But so far, the line hasn't broken once. Or if it has, it automatically feeds out new line. (quite a surprise as none of the other strimmers I've bought that should have done this have ever managed it)

And yes, the cable is waaaaayyyyy too short, but honestly, buy an extension cable. The strimmer is worth it.

Great buy!

For 18 years I've used B&D electric strimmers in my rural garden until a couple of years ago when I made the mistake of purchasing the GL656 which wouldn't strim a blade of grass without the lines breaking. It sat in the shed waiting for someone with a degree in engineering and the patience to spend hours attempting to fit new strimmer lines until I decided it would be better to buy another rather than throw good money after bad.

Having read the reviews on the ST5530 I decided to take the plunge and I'm so glad I did. This model has the reliability and value for money the 1990s models had. It coped so well with the grass edging that I set it to work tackling this years new scrub growth (nettles, brambles and wide leafed weeds) beneath hedges and trees and around the walls backing onto open fields. It did the job brilliantly without the line breaking even once. I'm so delighted with it.

It's light, easy to fit the guard and handle and with the height able to be adjusted it takes a lot of the backbreaking work away.

I like the wheel for edging, am really impressed that it will edge happily right against a wall without the line breaking just like much earlier models did and I also find the motor powerful enough to tackle large areas without faltering.

If the strimmer line proves easy to replace I'll be delighted since the replacements are not half as costly as they used to be and the length of time they last appears to be improving.

Highly recommend this product, brilliant

This strimmer just does the job, easy to use and smashes through mostly anything... Even flung a snail 20 meters into a bus window... Accidentally of course.
