I'm sure this would be an adequate trimmer except for the fact that the trimmer head refuses to advance line . When I called Black and Decker about this problem , the comment was ya , we're having problems with those <br />Not an inspiring comment . I returned it to Home Depot and ordered a Ryobi 40220

Comment:
I also own the hedge trimmer so I have 2 batteries. The line trimmer is great in tall grass and weeds. I have 2 acres and use up both batteries to finish the yard. My only complaint are the batteries. B&D replaced both under warranty and I am already having trouble with recharging one of the replacements. I can only say do not let the batteries run completely down as that seems to cause the problem. I now recharge when 2 lights are lit and this can be a pain as you have to keep checking how much power is left. The hedge trimmer is fantastic. Best buy I ever made. Just wish B&D would solve the battery problem.
