Why I Recommend the Black and Decker 18v Cordless Stimmer

I’m on to my second of these cordless grass strimmers my first one wore out.

Before you start to think that this is a problem please bear in mind that I use mine on a professional basis, I maintain several lawns a day from March through to December so my Strimmer works hard. Garden Maintenance Services

I use it mainly for precise edge cutting on lawns. It keeps them crisp and tidy. I hate to see a lawn without the edges done properly.

Two features on the Black and Decker 18v  cordless strimmer that make this easy to achieve are the guide wheel and the edge setting.

The guide wheel keeps you on the right track so to speak.

The whole cutting head can be twisted round, locked in place to enable you to cut clean edges. This is simply a quick and easy twist mechanism on the strimmer handle. Twist it back and you are ready to go on flat ground too.

Using a strimmer such as this Black and Decker makes light work of any grass strimming jobs around your garden.

Quick and Easy to operate.Easy Low Maintenance Garden Ideas


The Black and Decker 18v cordless strimmer also has a telescopic shaft. You can have it set to a length to suit your height together with a click and lock handle with several settings making it easy and ergonomic to operate.

All of these points also enable you to store it better and saves space as it folds up to just 1 metre.

The cordless version is a winner for me for a few reasons:

-It is lightweight and easy to use.

-It is also reasonably quiet, a lot quieter than petrol tools so I don’t feel that it disturbs anyone too much.

-The battery is long-lasting, 2500 linear meters on one charge.
