Black Decker 20V
« on: March 13, 2016, 11:51:43 am »
My wife has ask me to find her a small aka for short people ;) battery powered weed trimmer.

She dont like the hassle of my 2 gas trimmers and having to wait on me to start etc. Then she dont like the trimmers being bigger then her height and the noise.


So the look begins. Whats out there that will not break the bank.  ;D

She ran this across to me. B&D LST420 20V Max Lithium

I countered with this B&D LST136W 40V Max Lithium

OK reading on these 2 I dont like the idea of having to buy their replacement  spools with line. I want to respool myself.

Toro makes a nice little 24volt trimmer. We had good feedback on the ones we sold. 1/3 the price of our Stihl cordless. Don't recall the model right now but can get it at work tomorrow.

Thanks for info Art. Will take a quick look see before heading out today.

I need to get a new  wheelbarrow too.  Wishing for mulching and flower season soon.  Wife just came in and said we lost a bunch of the irises again. Dont understand that with such a soft winter. Unless it was left over from the last 2 die off years.

Didnt find a Toro to try out for her.
Not a fan of B&D but they were light and adjustable lengths. Sooooo we will see.

After going through them. The Dewalt, Kobalt etc were way to long and heavy just like the gas for her.

I was able to talk her into the model above the lightest one.  Being it was only 1lb more and had 2 batts, adjustment length and some extra power options. 

BLACK DECKER LSTE525 20V Max Lithium   http://www.blackanddecker.com/products/lawn-and-garden/lawn/string-trimmers/20v-max-lithium-easyfeed--string-trimmeredger--2-lithiumion-batteries/lste525

Seen the B&D deal had other options so she may be wanting them to do other stuff with too. Will update once she starts using. But even with it extended all the way out it is almost to short to my liking. She laughed and stated it was made for us short folks. She has it collapsed all the way in for her set up. I just laughed as I stated a dang midget could use it set like that.  :-X :P






I finally got me a  run flat wheelbarrow I been eyeing too. ;)   Kobalt 6-cu ft Steel Wheelbarrow with Flat-Free Tire

@Philbert  I cant find that rechargeable chainsaw thread you did here. The one where you tested and told about each.  I am trying to find out if any was the 20 volt size.

Reason is my wifes weed trimmer is 20V with 2 batts.  Every year she ask me to follow her around and trim limbs to big for the hand trimmers and loopers. So I get the gas out and go.

Just happens to be a black decker 20v chainsaw that weighs just over 7lbs with batt installed.  LCS1020   http://www.blackanddecker.com/products/lawn-and-garden/lawn/20v-outdoor-tools/20v-max-lithium-10-in-chainsaw/lcs1020

They have a top handle looking version and a rear handle. I feel a rear handle best for her to control.

Maybe you can check with the site administrator to find it?

 I only looked at cordless tools that were 36 V and above.  Generally, that is what I would advise. I would also generally recommend that you look at the 'family' of tools, in case you decide to add more later, and share the batteries, Chargers, etc. 

In this case, however, I may differ.  I also do not like the long shaft string trimmers. I like the way that my corded, Toro, electric string trimmer feels best.  So maybe you want to buy a 'one off' tool just for her.  Check out the Ryobi tools Home Depot.   You might have better choices than the Black and Decker ones.

LOL at first sentence.  I guess I can go and check threads you started to find it.

Already bought the 20 volt trimmer today.  Now looking at the 10" limb saw that will use the same battery. ;)
