Product Overview


NOTICE: Black & Decker has recently updated this model from the 36V battery standard to the 40V battery standard. If you are looking for the 36V version, please search for the model listed in the "Replaces" specification in the list to the right.
Black & Decker's electric lawn and garden equipment release zero emissions in your yard and provide a clean running unit that helps reduce your carbon footprint. Hassle-free electric starting system and a long lasting rechargeable 40V battery deliver the performance of a gas powered mower without the tedious recoil starting and messy oils.
Powered by the new 40V MAX Lithium-Ion technology, Black & Decker's LHT2436 24 in. Hedge Trimmer delivers a truly versatile yet powerful hedge trimmer. Featuring the unique PowerDrive transmission, the LHT2436 delivers exceptional cutting performance by cutting up to 3/4 in. wide branches with ease. A durable dual-action steel blade makes quick work of branches with less vibration than a single action blade, providing both comfort and performance in a lightweight tool.
Note: 40V MAX tools are backwards compatible with 36V Lithium-Ion battery packs.
  • Exclusive PowerDrive transmission delivers improved cutting capacity and performance
  • Dual-action 24 in. steel blade quickly cuts branches up to 3/4 in. thick with reduced vibration over single-action blades
  • Full wrap-around front handle offers improved control and maneuverability during cuts

    Finally have a good working product
    Reconditioned hedge trimmer works great after solving initial problems with battery and charger that came with the product.
    Received the product and looked like it was brand new. The battery that came with it wouldn't charge so I contacted the manufacturer and they told me to contact my local service center. The local service center asked me to bring the battery in and they would replace it. The local service center replaced the battery with no problems, but the new battery would not charge. I took the charger to the local service center and since they did not have a new one in stock, they had Black and Decker drop ship a new one to my home. The new charger arrived within 4 working days and the battery appears to be charging fine. Looks like the problem was with the charger and the trimmer works great, as advertised.

    This tool works great.
    I am cutting a large tree in the woods for my firepit,and there are a lot of bushes and weeds around it.I used the hedge trimmer to cut them and it worked great.I also used it to trim back my hedges that are getting too tall,and it trimmed them easily.

    Great tool
    I have both the 20 and the 36 volt trimmers. Both are great for light to medium trimming and do a great job.

    I have used it twice and I am very pleased with the power. The guard is annoying because it comes off easily. Price was right. I have used for about 30 minutes each time and worked great.

    Never done so much triming as I have now. . It is so much easier with this hedge trimmer. Only thing that would be nicer, if the blade was longeer.j

    can I pay by instalment
    Matt on May 22, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Merchandise has to be paid in full before shipping.
    I have a 36 volt lawn trimmer. Would the batteries be interchangeable?
    DON on Nov 29, 2015
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, the batteries should be cross compatible
    Approximately how long does the trimmer run on a charged battery?
    Jim in Texas on Dec 11, 2014
    BEST ANSWER: Run time is based on how the trimmer is being used (i.e constantly running the trimmer on high would have a lower run time than a end-user running the trimmer at a lower speed). A best case scenario should equal approximately 45-55 minutes of run time
    Will the 40 volt battery work in a 20 volt trimmer ?

    New Vs. Reconditioned

    What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

    Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
    • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
    • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
    • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
