Stop looking around, this is the one you're looking for.

To put it plainly, I bought a house and needed a trimmer. I found out that unlike buying a lawn mower, trying to chose a trimmer was not an easy task. These days gas trimmers are more affordable than ever and battery powered trimmers seem to be all the rage with being environmentally friendly, light, and can cost much more than a gas trimmer. I have alot of trimming to do so battery powered was out. After using my dad's gas trimmer I found my shoulder was killing me after having to hold the engine end up to get the right angle. So it came down to electric for me. I initially was looking at buying this trimmer's predecessor which is the 7.2 dual line trimmer which felt great to hold as it had great weight distribution with the motor being located in the handle/trigger assembly. However it received many negative reviews due to the internal motor belt drive breaking and eating line like there's no tomorrow. I decided that I was going to buy it anyway because it was on clearance for $50. Then I came across this trimmer. No reviews. I went to Sears to take a look at it. The weight distribution is even better than the 7.2, it has a gear drive train instead of a belt, and has a single line vs. a dual line. It was only $20 more so I went for it. I got it home and pulled it out of the box right away and plugged it in. This thing handles like a dream. This trimmer does not discriminate. It destroys everything from grass to weeds to thick brush. The automatic feeding line is amazing when all you've used was a bump feeder. It's very economical as it waits until you absolutely need line before it advances and is completely trouble free. I have used this trimmer 6 times and it still is on the original spool of line that it came with and that is with pushing back the jungle that wants to overtake the right side of my house. If you can deal with the obvious downside of having a cord to deal with occasionally this trimmer will match the power of gas trimmers and save your shoulder. You might just have fun trimming the lawn for a change :)

Whoever engineered this should feel ashamed

I don't typically write product reviews, but this trimmer has made me so incredibly frustrated I can't help myself. Like others have mentioned, the spool on this is so bad you'll find yourself wanting to beat this product against the ground as hard as you can until it breaks into a dozen pieces. If you like weed whacking in 20 second intervals before spending 5 minutes respooling your line, this is the tool for you. The line unspooling and whipping you in the legs is a fun feature too. I've tried multiple different trimmer lines in this and I can confirm: it is the B&D trimmer that is the issue, not the line. By far the worst weed trimmer I've ever used.

Easy Handling Trimmer/Edger


Bought this recently used it 4 times once per-week, so far no issues works well. Powerful enough for basic edging & trimming. I don't think for more dense- higher growth better for basic lawn care. The trim line works okay no issues but appears to go fast, almost empty on my first roll after 4 usages..Overall good ! Had a B&D Grass-hog for 10 years before it died, this appears close to my new model..

Very Good Trimmer, Needs Straight Shaft !!!


Like so many of the other reviewers, when I first purchased this machine in 2015 I was going to write a very negative review of the machine and the auto-feed head. At first, the spool and line that came with the machine worked fine, but when I wound replacement line, trimming was VERY FRUSTRATING, line fed out faster than the speed of the cutting head. I was ready to spend several minutes/hours cursing the thing, but then I looked into the issue and found that I had been loading the line BACKWARDS !!! When I re-loaded line properly, the machine again functioned very well, and it has continued to do so through many, many hours of use. Then I began wondering why I needed that darned wheel on the cutting guard ? It always got in the way of cutting, but there was no way to easily remove it. Eventually, I cut it off (just the wheel and support, not the entire guard), took 20 seconds, and now I consider the machine to be much more versatile and usable. But unfortunately, after 4 years of trouble-free productive use, I unintentionally left in out in the elements and when I again tried to use it, the drive motor failed. But I liked and used it so much that I bought another, and now it too will see many years of use. About the only thing I could ask of B&D is to make the 3500 available in a straight shaft version. I'm a tall person, over 6', and I find I must bend-over more than I would want to make certain types of cuts. Some consider the use of an electric device a bad thing because of the need for extension cords, but I simply plan out what I will need for that cutting session and go to work. I like the way that when it you pull the trigger to cut, it cuts, and when you want to stop, it stops. No hassle, very little noise, low power consumption, light weight and easy to use. And yet this machine is very capable of cutting light grass and medium-heavy weed growth up to 48" tall on my 5 acre property in a rural area. Yes, I recommend the machine, but learn how to properly wind line onto the bobbin and happiness will be yours.

Terrible trimmer


Feeds out large amounts of line, doesn't cut it and then tangles it completely around the power head. Has done this since new.

Bought this to replace my Grass Hog 1000 dissatisfying at best. Cuts slow due to the single string and the motor derates itself when put into edging mode. Good thing it has a wheel because you will get tired of holding it up waiting for it to cut.
