    Incredible value for the average homeowner. But know what you are getting., October 30, 2011

    WHY I BOUGHT THIS SET: I picked up this set because I had a corded Black and Decker trimmer that was giving me problems, so I replaced it with the 20v cordless trimmer in this set. I liked it so much that I returned it and purchased this set to get the other tools for less cost. If you’re buying any of these tools by themselves, you may want to consider paying a little more and getting this set instead.

    THE SET ITSELF: These tools are priced at over $100 each, so for a little more than the cost of two tools, you’re getting all three.

    These aren’t meant to be as powerful as gas-powered tools. “With great power comes great responsibility” gas-powered tools also need a ton of maintenance, are expensive, and aren’t the best for the environment. These Black and Decker 20v tools are lean, mean enough and green. I say mean enough, because they don’t quite cut it for big jobs. You really have to know that there are limits for these tools and if you want something to do a heavy-duty job, you probably should go with gas-powered yard tools. I’ll explain more below.

    THE STRING TRIMMER: The trimmer is by far the best tool in the set. It’s both a trimmer and an edger, it’s lightweight, and it’s got some good power to it. A battery only last about 20 minutes, so make sure you have an extra one charging if you’ve got a large job. Edging can spend a battery in even less time. Not having to drag a cord around is worth keeping a second battery charged.

    I have a 4,500 square foot lawn with a lot of trimming and one battery is usually enough, but I have used the spare if it was more overgrown than normal.

    This isn’t going to do edging as if it was a gas-edger, or even a corded edger – it just doesn’t have the power to use it for that. So don’t expect to blast through heavily overgrown grass roots growing over the sidewalk. But if it’s not overgrown, this will keep it nice and edged.

    THE HEDGE-TRIMMER: It’s very lightweight and can tackle most household jobs. We have quite a few hedges in the front of our house. While it will take a little longer to complete a job while using this, it works as good as any corded version I’ve used, but you don’t have to deal with that annoying cord.

    THE BLOWER: The blower is the weakest tool of the bunch. Don’t expect to blow wet leaves or other heavy debris into a pile. This tool is best used for light clean up after a mowing or trimming. Or a small amount of dry leaves.

    I still keep a corded beast of a blower/vac combo to deal with the heavy stuff. But it’s nice not having to lug that thing out – plus the cord behind it – for small jobs. The 20v blower is perfect for that.

    CONCLUSION: This is not going to replace more powerful tools. But for medium-duty tasks around a small to mid size property, this is the best set money can buy.

    TIPS: Get yourself more of the 20v Black and Decker tools – all of the batteries are interchangeable so you’ll eventually build up enough batteries to take on hour worth of work with these tools. I loved these so much, I picked up the drill/driver, the chainsaw, and the tiller. Great tools.

    Not any better than the NiCad, August 29, 2011

    Worse version of the NiCad set I had. I have a large yard and needed to trim without running out of batteries. The blower is quieter, but the battery life is worse and they take longer to charge. I have Bosch lithium tools and they charge in about 30-40 minutes and last for weeks. These take hours or overnight. At the least 3 batteries just to trim and if I blow leaves or grass from the sidewalks and patio forget it. If I had not already sold the NiCad set I would send it back. Now I have to get rid of this and go through the nightmare of shopping again.

    This is a great product for short timed work. The batteries only last 20 to 30 minutes and take up to 8 hours to recharge. The units are light and easy to use.
