Great price
I bought this cause I was looking for a inexpensive trimmer and considering the price this is everywhere else I couldn't pass it up. I had trouble fixing the spool as the instructions are not clear. But other than that so far it's great works great. I've had no problems so far.

Very nice product!
14" 6.5 Amp String Trimmer and Edger. Have had three different versions of this same trimmer in the past 5 years. This is the best by-far of the three trimmers. Could keep this model "as is" for the future models.

I bought this to replace a gas trimmer only because at the time that I bought gas my left arm worked, now that it is inoperable I needed something lighter than the gas trimmer, so I looked for the best trimmer with the best reviews and the best customer buys, Black & Decker had just that. Being basically the middle of the summer, trimmers were a little hard to find, Menards took care of my needs, it was the last one with it being the display model, no box but, had the instructions I needed, to get started and to find this site. Black & Decker has once again made a great product, I have a leaf blower that they manufacture and it has preformed flawlessly. Black & Decker is the company that gets the job done the first time and with ease, oh and the price was better than what I thought it would be, Black & Decker is the winner!

Use with .095 generic line to get some use.
Absolutely useless with the .065 line that comes with it, the pack of refills is useless too. Requires .095 trimmer line for any use. May not last for 20 years like my craftsman that it replaced.

Motor bearing/bushing issue
Trimmer worked great for 1.5 years. Not sure why motor bearings/bushings wore out. I kept all vent openings cleaned out to prevent overheating. Was using the mower attachment and the motor started making noise, slowing down and finally stopped working.

I have a medium size yard and yet I was unanble to go half way around the perimeter without having to add line three times. I do not thing that could be considered normal usage.

Try something else
This trimmer uses too much line. Went through three reels (over $23) within 30 minutes of trimming. Also line feed keeps getting stuck.
Will need to buy something better.
