  • Easily converts from trimmer to edger with a quick turn of the shaft

  • Fast Charger (about 1 hour) included standard

The LST136 came ready to go, minus the guard and the handle. They took about two minutes to install. The battery came charged about 50%. It took about 20 minutes in the included charger to fully charge.

When I held the LST136 trimmer for the first time, it felt as if it were levitating, much like in the photo above. So, just to make sure that I wasn’t imagining any thing, I took a piece of twine and tied it to a pole. Guess what? The LST136 balances itself. I have had many corded trimmers and gas trimmers, and none of them were perfectly balanced like the Black & Decker LST136. The corded ones flopped to the front. The gas ones flopped to the back.

After the trigger is pulled, it takes a second or two to reach the max speed. It’s very zippy. It did a nice job of trimming very tall grass and went through moderate growth like it wasn’t even there.
