Black & Decker LST220 Trimmer/Edger Review

Black & Decker LST220 Trimmer/Edger

There are many top rated trimmers on the market at the moment, and the Black & Decker 13-Inch Lithium Ion Cordless High Performance String Trimmer is seen as being one of the very best. With so many trimmers available on the market at the moment, it can be difficult to know which one is going to suit your needs and requirements, especially if you are ready to make the switch between corded and cordless technology.

This particular trimmer has been designed to be efficient and give the user the added benefits of being completely cordless, but without the hassle of using gas. It has also been designed to give the user much more cutting power, allowing them to get their trimming job done much quicker. This is thanks to Black & Decker’s patented PowerDrive Transmission technology, which will help you to trim areas that are difficult to reach, and allow you to get where other trimmers cannot.

The Black & Decker 13-Inch Lithium Ion Cordless High Performance String Trimmer is powered by highly efficient 40-volt MAX lithium-ion batteries that give excellent power, whilst also offering excellent run time between charges. In addition to which, these batteries are compatible with other cordless Black & Decker products too.

This trimmer also comes with two unique power settings, which adjust the amount of power to the cutting string. The standard setting sets the string at 6500 RPM for better battery life, but for those thick weeds, the power output can be upped so that the cutting speed is increased to 8500 RPM, making it much easier to tackle even the strongest of weeds, and the thickest grass.
Switching between edging and cutting is also straightforward, thanks to the easily adjustable head, which can be rotated through 180 degrees. The device also comes with Black & Decker’s own Automatic Feed Spool system (AFS), which helps to deliver more cutting string automatically, negating the need for the user to bump the device on the ground.

A lot of people shy away from switching to cordless technology, as they are concerned at the amount of life they can get from a device before it needs recharging. However, with this particular trimmer, you will find that the battery life is very good indeed, and there is no need to be constantly charging the device between uses.
