For years, Black & Decker has been busy making some of the best power and outdoor tools available. With the introduction of their Black & Decker NST2018 Electric String Trimmer, they’ve managed to meet the expectations for quality that customers have come to expect. This isn’t Black & Decker’s highest-end string trimmer, but it does deliver where it counts – raw cutting power and ease of use.
No More Cords
Electric string trimmers can be great, and they’re surely more environmentally friendly than gasoline powered trimmers. Unfortunately, though, it stinks to be tied down to a cord while you’re trimming the weeds. The Black & Decker NST2018 Grass Hog gives you the freedom you need to move all throughout the yard, without ever worrying about tripping over a pesky cord, or putting yourself at risk of shock by trimming wet grass. The battery of this trimmer charges up quickly and you even get a spare, so you’ll have plenty of juice to get your yard work done quickly.
Once you get on a roll with your weed eater, nothing’s worse than having to stop to extend a bit more string. Thankfully, with the Black & Decker NST2018 Grass Hog 12-Inch 18-Volt Cordless Electric String Trimmer, you get automatic string feeding. The line advances as you need it, and while the trimmer is in use. That means less stopping and frustration when you need more string to finish the job at hand.
