The Black & Decker 18-Volt Cordless GROOM 'N' EDGE
trimmer/edger puts the finishing touches on any lawn or garden. There are no extension cords or gas engines to maintain, and the light weight adds to the simplified operation. A large, 12-inch cutting path covers a lot of groud in a single pass when trimming, and the tool offers deep, defined borders when used for edging. Black & Decker's patented gear-drive transmission delivers superior power and cutting performance when compared to other cordless trimmers in this voltage class.
An intuitive, easy-to-use design helped the NST2018 win its designation as a Consumers Digest Best Buy. View larger.
Edging and Trimming in One Tool
The GROOM 'N' EDGE
trimmer/edger combines two tools in one to make lawn and garden care more convenient. Use the tool's edger function to add borders to your pathways and flower beds, which helps to fight weeds and define the areas in your yard. Flip the head back over to a trimming tool to clip grass around delicate plants or in tight corners, giving your grounds a clean, manicured look. The large, 12-inch cut path makes it possible to complete your yard work in less time.
Integrated Features for Performance and Comfort
Black & Decker's automatic feed spool keeps the line at a constant, perfect length for trimming, allowing you to finish your tasks without interruption. The shaft telescopes to fit your height, and an adjustable handle makes holding and operating the trimmer/edger comfortable for all users.
Extended Range of Use with Cordless, Rechargeable Power
With its 18-volt battery, the trimmer/edger lets you tend to the most remote areas on your property without the hassle of winding extension cords or maintaining gas or oil engines. The GROOM 'N' EDGE
includes two batteries--use one and keep the other in the included charger so it's ready the next time you need it. The battery is also compatible with other select cordless Black & Decker lawn tools for added convenience.
The rechargeable power greatly reduces noise and emission pollution associated with gas engines, protectecting your hearing and the environment.
The Black & Decker 18-Volt Cordless Electric GROOM 'N' EDGE trimmer/edger is covered by a two-year warranty.
