5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for a small yard Feb. 26 2013
This Black & Decker 20-Volt Lithium-Ion Trimmer/Edger comes with two lithium-ion batteries, each lasting from 15 to 20 minutes when fully charged. A totally depleted battery takes up to 8 hours to recharge. This trimmer is not for folks with a large yard that takes more than 40 minutes to cut, but it is perfect for casual use around a small yard. It is light, weighing merely 5 pounds when fully assembled. It goes anywhere and cuts grass and weeds efficiently. It can be converted into an edger by rotating the lower housing 180 degrees. The 0.065 inch round trim line is fed automatically at the spool - no bumping against the ground is necessary. The spool can be purchased pre-wound or the owner can rewind the spool from bulk line. Personally I don't think it is worth the hassle to rewind the spool. I recommend this trimmer-edger to Amazon shoppers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gas Free Option March 27 2011
By JDP - Published on Amazon.com
Over the years I've used many Black & Decker products. Everything from power tools to lawn care equipment, most are as advertised and effectively do the job just as good as the higher priced competition. I haven't used a gas powered tool in over 12 years now. I've also gone the electric route as well. My eleven year old 18 volt B&D trimmer has more then proved itself and finally was put out to pasture. I'm still surprised that I got that much running time from the two 18 volt batteries that came with the unit. For quick and easy trimming, its been a capable tool. That said, I picked up the Black & Decker LST220 Grasshog Trimmer at my local hardware store last weekend.

After a quick inventory, I scanned over the brief instructions. Its pretty much cut and dry as to what's in the box. There's the trimmer, instructions, two batteries, cord, and a charger. The company also tags on a two year limited warranty. The instructions on Black & Decker tools are still amusing to say the least. It doesn't take a degree in rocket science to put a piece of their gear together. Knowing what I know about battery powered lawn tools, I knew I would need both batteries to complete the tasks in my large front and back yards. So I charged both of the 20 volt batteries for about 8 hours each.

Now the test. First off, the B&D LST220 Trimmer has a nice light feel to it. Like my older trimmer, the handle has a good ergonomic feel to it. It easily moves up and down and rotates a full 360 degrees. Adjustment is easy. It didn't take me long to find out about the line's new auto feed system. Its much nicer then the old bump and feed system. On average I found myself using about four of the 30' line spools a year. Only time will tell if that number drops with this new system.

The trimmer does seem faster. I don't doubt the advertised 7500 rpm a bit. The 12" trim path has not changed from my older model. The trigger configuration hasn't changed either. Its still has a nice feel. Trimming wise, this model operates smoothly without any hiccups. It does a great job of getting under bushes and around the fence line. Just like my older unit, I was not surprised that I had to utilize both batteries to get the front yard trimming done. I noticed a drop off in power at about 15 minutes. Good thing B&D includes two batteries. One battery doesn't come anywhere near getting the job done.

The metal guard for edging has stayed much the same design as the original model. Like my older B&D trimmers, the LST220 Trimmer is not capable of doing a great job of edging because of the steady drain on battery power. Even with two 20 volt batteries, its just not enough juice. I always have to break out my electric powered edger or hand tools to complete the task. Why Black & Decker even promotes its lineup of battery powered trimmers as edgers is a mystery to me.

Even though I am user of many Black & Decker products, I find the company's website limited on up to date product information. Product registration is available via the site. It seems that it took them ages to post a toll free number. Now depending on the product, there is a toll free number posted for each line. When I did contact customer service for other tools that I've owned, I've always received outstanding service. Signing up for the company newsletter via email is nothing more then receiving an occasion survey on products.

Even with its battery limitations, the Black & Decker LST220 Cordless Grass Hog Trimmer is a useful working tool in clearing out ground not accessible by a mower. When it comes to edging that's a different story. Personally I don't think there is any battery powered tool out there that certifies as a true edging tool. I know I've not seen or used one. Still, this Black & Decker tool covers the bases as a good gas free trimmer.

4.0 out of 5 stars LIGHTWEIGHT BUT SHORT RUN TIME April 21 2011
By Christina - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this product from my local "bigbox" store a month ago so thought I would drop a review here anyway. The LST220 came with two 20volt lithium ion batteries, a charger, and a leaf blower. I am not the least big mechanically inclined, but I put this wonder together in a few minutes. Batteries each take a full 8 hours to charge, which is a drawback for me, since they only gave me 20 minutes of weeding on each battery, and take 8 hours to charge each one. This unit's height can be adjusted with the quick easy turn of a collar, and the (.065) line is automatic--so no more bump & feed! It is so lightweight and easy to use, and I really do love the fact that I don't have to mess with pulling that nasty string a dozen times on a smelly gas-powered trimmer any more. With this model, all you do is push a button! The only cons would be that the battery lasts me 20 minutes of run time, so I get to do about 35-40 minutes total weed whacking using two batteries. Quite honestly, I can't stand doing much more than that anyway, but I called B&D to verify this, and was told that 20 minutes' run time is the best that I can expect to get for each battery. When I asked B&D why they don't make one with a longer battery life (an hour per battery would be good) I was told that it would make the unit much too heavy (huh??). An electric (corded) weed trimmer is not an option for me since I would have to have an 800ft. cord. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 only because of the short battery use; a quicker charge time would be a plus. Otherwise, I really enjoy using it, so much so that I think I'm addicted. Haven't had to change the spool yet, but will update this when I do.

UPDATE: By the time I had used this 12-14 times, I was only getting 7-10 minutes' run time from each battery. With 16+ hours charge time, it would take me 3-4 days to complete one small area. It's a shame really, as everything else about this machine is great. B&D told me not to expect more than 7 minutes of use from each battery. I ended up returning this weed whacker, and still looking for a good cordless. For those of you who claim to get 35+ minutes' continuous run time from each battery, I'd like to know how.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for trimming, okay for edging, short battery life March 18 2011

This is my first cordless electric trimmer. Despite of mediocre reviews at consumer reports I decided to try this one, after yet another half hour on my knees in the garage trying to start my diva-esque 3-year-old 2-cycle gas engine trimmer..
Shipping was slow, packing the worst I've ever seen from Amazon! But it worked, and it was fairly easy to put the parts together. I used it twice now, so here is my impression:
Sleek looks, length is adjustable (but barely enough for me, and I am only 6ft tall), charging really takes 8 hours for each battery (!), and the trimmer runs between 10 and 12 minutes with a fully charged battery - less if you are edging stubborn St Augustine grass.
It is louder than I expected, but still much better than a gas engine trimmer.
The line is a little thinner (.65) compared to my Ryobi gas trimmer (.80), the diameter of the cutting area is a lot smaller and it uses only one line instead of two, so it takes a little longer to trim the same area. But it still works fine on a regular size suburban lot like mine. I did not find anything that this trimmer would not 'mowe down', so this is a success! It takes a little more time, but the lower weight, noise and aggravation level are making up for it. No more mixing gas and oil and fiddling with starters..
The Black&Decker is too weak, at least for edging the stubborn crawling shoots of our Floridian St Augustine grass. It still works, but I have to carry a manual pruning cutter with me and walk the edged line again to cut the remaining grass by hand.. I am not sure if the line is too soft or too thin or whether it is just the lack of power or rotation speed, all I can say is it cannot compare to a good gas powered edger.
The batteries are gone fast too, when you are edging. That's a disappoinment. Since this unit is very light weight and the batteries are small, it makes you wonder why they didn't double the battery size/capacity? It would still be very small and light weight..
All in all a really nice tool for a suburban lot, and good enough if you are willing to add some manual work here and there..
I consider trying the cordless lithium-ion leaf blower, but since that one comes only with one battery, I am worried it may work only a few minutes - waiting for your reviews!

5.0 out of 5 stars trimmer June 26 2011
By Kleine - Published on Amazon.com

Awesome! I had the same basic trimmer only with ni-cad batteries instead of lithium-ion and felt it was ok but too heavy and battery life was too short. The lithium-ion is FAR superior. Light weight, lots of power, and got as much trimming done with one battery as I used to get with two ni-cad batteries. Yes, the recharge time is 8 hours per battery but I don't use it every day so have plenty of time to get the batteries charged between uses and lith-ion batteries hold their charge, unlike ni-cads which begin to slowly discharge as soon as you remove them from the charger whether they are used or not. I always got a backache from bending over awkwardly to use the old trimmer, this one is light enough that, if I keep the handle short, I can use it one-handed and can stand strighter. If you have LOTS of trimming to do you might want to get a quick charger or extra batteries but I was able to trim around 10 large trees, 2 garages, the house (30' X 40'), a swing set, and 200 feet of fencing using two batteries and could have done more if I'd needed to. You DO need to be aware that unlike ni-cads which lose their charge noticeably as they are used, lith-ion batteries keep their power quite steady right up to the point that they are completely discharged and they just quit abruptly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Price for 2 Lithium Batteries May 19 2011
By ESVK - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product

** Weeds eat great.
** Get 30 minutes of constant power from two lithium batteries
** Light-weight and easy to handle
** Great price considering the two lithium batteries

Non Pros:
** Takes several hours to fully charge the batteries. So if 30 minutes isn't enough cut time for you before recharging, then you may wish to purchase additional batteries.
