Tired of dealing with gas-powered outdoor equipment? The weight, the fumes, the mixing and the storing can be a real hassle. Now there’s a high performance, high power, cordless alternative to gas: the Black and Decker 40V MAX* Lithium Brushless Trimmer & Edger.
This 40V MAX String Trimmer is an upgrade from BLACK+DECKER’s existing bestselling 40V string trimmer because it features new, more efficient brushless motor technology. The more durable brushless motor provides 30% longer runtime than its predecessor, more power, and eliminates the issues of gas-powered tools.
The unit converts from trimmer to edger with the push of a button. The string trimmer features a patented gear drive transmission, which increases torque for more cutting power at the string. It also features a variable speed trigger, which allows for more user control over power and runtime.
At only 7 ½ lbs, this string trimmer is lightweight yet durable. It has a wide, 13-inch swath and features the patented AFS system, which automatically feeds spool while trimming, with no bumping required. Its easily adjustable height and handle position provide maximum user comfort.
The Black and Decker 40V MAX* Lithium Brushless Trimmer & Edger comes with a fast-charger, which recharges the battery in under 90 minutes. It’s also a part of a larger, newly expanded family of outdoor tools that includes hedge trimmers, sweepers, and mowers.
A high performance, high power, cordless alternative to gas, the Black and Decker 40V MAX* Lithium Brushless Trimmer & Edger has a suggested price of $179 and is available at Sears and Amazon in April.
