A wheeled edge guide has been added for balance and to eliminate the need to hover the Trimmer Edger over the line of grass between the lawn and sidewalk while edging.

Customer reviewsNice cordless weedeater and combo edger . I would have given it 5 stars if it would have run an hour on the two 20V batteries
This Black Decker LST420 trimmer edger is part of the 20V Max tool system that uses the same line of rechargeable 20 volt batteries. It is a nice cordless trimmer with 2 power settings. The trimmer can be rotated so that it performs as an edger which allows the orange wheel at the bottom of the trimmer to be rolled along a flat surface . As an edger it seemed to be adequate, although I admit that I rarely do edging. It was really good not having to drag an extension cord all over the yard. The trimmer speed can be set at 1 for longer battery usage or 2 for more power . The 2 setting feels closer to my 110 volt corded weedeater, although I found that the 1 setting was adequate for most of the weed-eating that I was doing. The first time I used the trimmer I got about 23 minutes on one fully charged battery using the 1 setting about 95 percent of the time. My second battery was charging . About 8 or 10 minutes of that time was cutting some grass and weeds about a foot tall. It didn t get bogged down even on the 1 setting, which is good. The box states in large letters, 1 HOUR RUNTIME so I gave it 4 stars since I didn t believe the other battery would give me about 37 minutes. Next time if I can get about an hour on both batteries I ll raise my rating to 5 stars.
