Black & Decker LST136W 40V Max Lithium String Trimmer

Black & Decker LST136W 40V Max Lithium String Trimmer

Designed for cutting efficiency and the freedom of cordless convenience, the 13-inch cordless LST136W trimmer and edger delivers more power from the motor to the cutting string so you can get the job done faster. Thanks to Black & Decker‘s exclusive PowerDrive Transmission, you’ll be able to trim grass in hard-to-reach areas where mowers cannot cut while also maintaining a neat edging along hard surfaces.

It’s powered by Black & Decker‘s high-powered 40-volt MAX lithium-ion battery system, which offers power, excellent runtime, and the versatility to share batteries with other tools within the system.

The LST136W’s head can be rotated 180-degrees for quick switches between cutting and edging tasks. It also offers Black & Decker’s Automatic Feed Spool (AFS) system, which uses centrifugal force to dispense more line whenever you need it for added predictability and dependability — no bumping required. Other features include an auxiliary handle with quick release, 13-inch cutting swath, and 0.065 line diameter.

It seem to have some of the same “auto feed” problems others are experiencing. Went to whack a bunch of different weeds down that were very tall. It worked pretty good but the larger diameter weeds caused the string to break sometimes or thick vine type of weeds broke the line. It wouldn’t auto feed. I took it apart and the problem seems to be with the line on the spool itself. It wouldn’t auto feed because some of the line was almost anchored to the rest of the line in spots – almost too well anchored. At one point pulling on the line to break the “melt point” resulted in me breaking the line?! It was super frustrating – but I didn’t want to waste the entire spool and would go through the ridiculous process of removing the spool each time the cord was too short and manually pulling longer lengths through. I purchased a 3 pack of new spools. I’ll try them out and hopefully they are better. I also have trimmer line already and will try to figure out if I can re-line the existing spools somehow. No ding on number of stars just yet. Thing was a champ taking out some weeds with diameter of 1 inch not to mention how thick and tough some of the weeds were. For just regular grass it’s still a champ.
