Black and Decker NST2018 18 Volt 12" Cordless GRASSHOG Weed Eater/Trimmer
Reviews say the 18-volt Black & Decker NST2018 is the best cordless weed eater available, giving it high marks for ease of use and its light 6.5-pound weight. You can extend the 20 to 30-minute run time by keeping one or more extra batteries charged. The cutting head rotates easily to do vertical edging. If you just need to trim or edge a well-kept lawn, a cordless weed eater offers the most convenience, but it won't work well on tall grass or weeds. The Black & Decker has a two-year warranty.
