Weed Like To Give You A Father’s Day Gift! GIVEAWAY!

This Giveaway Is Closed!

Weed like to give you a brand new…..


Did you know that Mr. Remodelaholic loves tools?  I’t true!  I do. Any tool that makes the job easier is a tool on my list to buy.  And I was able to receive a new tool for my yard from Black and Decker this week.

Considering our desire to make life a little easier and a little cleaner we are starting to get yard tools that are environmentally friendly and take no fuel or oil to run them.  I am tired of dealing with the maintenance and cost associated them.  I recently received a sweet new Black and Decker Cordless 24-Volt String trimmer.  Yes! It is battery powered, which is great.  Now fuel or cords to deal with.

The timing could not have been better to receive a new trimmer for my yard.  Happy Father’s Day to me!  The trimmer that I have now is dying and needs to die, before I do from the amount of air pollution that it puts out into my lungs, yard and neighborhood.

Let me share with you what I love about this new trimmer.
These are the main features that I found awesome.


  • High Output 24V NiCad Battery  (good power)
  • Zero Emissions in My Yard!! (seriously you would choke with our old trimmer)
  • PowerCommand Technology (two speeds)
  • Over sized Handle (easy to handle and carry)
  • Lightweight Aluminum Shaft (not to heavy, easy to adjust for height)
  • Two-Tools-In-One (edger and trimmer)
  • Large 13 Inch Cutting Swath
  • Automatic Feed Spool System
The first thing that I noticed when I pulled it out of the box and assembled it, was how light weight it was.  It weighs about half the weight of my old gas trimmer.  That makes it easy to handle around the yard without straining my arms and back.

It did take me a while to find out how to start it though.  I was searching for the on switch when all I had to do is pull the trigger and I was off.  NICE and EASY!  Battery powered also means zero emissions.  My wife was always afraid for my life when she saw me out there trimming in a blue cloud of smoke.  I had to start wearing masks to protect my lungs.  

The High Output 24v NiCad Battery is a huge bonus.  24-volts is a lot of power for a battery.  It has two power levels too, with PowerCommand, to fit your needs whether you have tall grass or short grass to trim.  The other day I had grass up to my waist.  It is perfect cutting that down.  (Our mower died… so we still need to find a new one, I wasn’t slacking on my husbandly duties)

 It has a nice 13″ wide cutting surface that automatically adjusts the string when it gets short, so you don’t have to stop and stomp it on the ground.  It also holds 30′ of line, which is about double the length of standard trimmers.

It is not only a trimmer, but a edger too.  with a simple little twist of the shaft you can change the angle and cut a nice clean edge.  I love tools that have a multiple purpose.  It save room for me to buy MORE tools (insert evil laugh here)

As a teenager I worked with a landscaping company and had my own company during college so I have used many trimmers throughout the years gas powered and corded.  Overall, I think that this is one of the smartest designs for a trimmer that I have seen.  By the way it would make a great Fathers Day Gift for all you shoppers!  

Thanks Black and Decker for your great product!

Wanna see the before and after?… and when I say before- I mean SCARY!  (remember our mower died, so we didn’t have one for a few weeks, okay technically we still haven’t forked over the money to buy a new one, but our neighbors have had pity on us, and haven’t chased us from the neighborhood with pitchforks and torches!)

Oh, so much better!

 Last week started out with a generous Black and Decker 24-volt Trimmer giveaway.  And the winner of the giveaway is comment number 59.  It looks like it pays off to tweet.
Who is …
Here is what her first comment was.
Oh! I don’t know that I DESERVE it…but we sure could use it! We have an electric mower and weed eater, both of which are on their last leg, but the house we currently live in has only one outside outlet. So we have to put like 5 extension cords together (which is a pain and dangerous!!) To reach all of the front and back yard.

Cordless is GOOD!!!

Congratulations Lorie!!!

  1. >Oh me, oh me! Please oh please!

    I so need this. Last year our mower died and we replaced it with a nice little push mower and, while I like it a lot, it does a very poor job on the edges and my yard is starting to look like … I don't even know. Just something very scary. I NEED that trimmer! 🙂

  2. >Oh, and also, it's MY responsibility to mow, so I guess this would be a late Mother's Day gift.

  3. >Well, we don't technically "deserve" a new trimmer. BUT, it would be fun to give it to our sweet neighbor that continues to surprise us, every now and then, by mowing our lawn. (Not that we don't…he just beats us to it, sometimes!)

  4. >need the trimmer because I've convinced myself that the perfect line my mower creates with the area it can barely not reach is a border in itself, even though it is a combination of tall grass and misc. weeds (some of which it's too bad they are labeled as weeds – some weeds are sort of pretty!)… sigh, need the trimmer.
