Iain , Edinburgh

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The handle layout makes the unit easy to manoeuvre around the garden.
The two strimmer lines make it very efficient.
Low noise level is good compared with other machines.
Bad points:
The box had been tampered with and two vital screws were missing, but being an engineer I had replacements to hand.
Not everyone will!

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
unlike all the many other strimmers l have bought and used this one is number 1. makes short work of long grass without ever the need to to frequently adjust the line something l no longer have to do with this tool. other frustrated strimmers heres the real answer. please always take the full safety measures when using this tool.
Bad points:
too heavy and a better cord storage facility would be the finishing touch to a cut above the rest product.

Eric S, Liverpool YES

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Very good when it's working o.k.
Bad points:
Very heavy to use and you cannot use cord that you wind on yourself because it never works. You have to buy Black and Decker cord which is wound on at the factory.

Helena, Montrose

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Best strimmer we have ever bought. A bit more expensive than others on the market, but it is robust and so far we have had little trouble with the coil (which do tend to break off far too often on other strimmers we have had). Very powerful and they have made safety a priority.
Bad points:
A bit fiddly with the strimmer coil but we did manage eventually. It is better to wear goggles over the eyes when using this machine as it is powerful and the stones in the garden tend to fly up a lot. However we did buy if for the power of the machine so can't complain. Not a machine that you would allow children to use I don't think.

Ali, Glasgow

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Light & easy to use. Telescopic handle is good for shorter women. Automatic line feed works perfectly. Had a less powerful B&D model previously and found it very reliable and able to cope well with long grass and brambles so wanted to stay with same brand.
Bad points:
As usual, these things are designed with men in mind and the line cover on the head is too broad a span for a small hand to remove comfortably. A bit fiddly but ok.
