Innovations in Corded Outdoor Equipment from BLACK+DECKER™
BLACK+DECKER™ announces new corded outdoor lawn and garden equipment to help homeowners conquer the yard this spring. These string trimmers, hedge trimmers, and mowers feature innovations that help get the job done quickly and effectively so homeowners can spend more time enjoying the yard rather than tending to it.
Two new corded BLACK+DECKER mowers utilize unique steering and grip innovations for great maneuverability and comfort. The 15-Inch Pivot Control™ Corded Mower ($139.99 MSRP) is designed to power through tall grass and easily pivot around tricky spots like flower beds. The 15-Inch Comfort Grip™ Corded Mower ($129.99 MSRP) features an ergonomic grip and is designed for ease of use. Both mowers have an easy-to-push start button, winged blade for 30% better grass collection*, and a single lever adjustment to easily change the height of cut between one and three inches.
With the following multipurpose lawn care equipment, BLACK+DECKER offers products designed to serve as tools for a variety of functions. Each tool is compact and lightweight for ease of use, yet powerful enough to get the job done. One of these new products is the 12-Inch Compact Mower ($79.99 MSRP), which is a string trimmer and edger with an included attachment that easily converts the tool to a compact mower. The 12-Inch Compact Mower has a POWERDRIVE™ Transmission that increases torque for more cutting power at the string. Ideal for city dwellers and townhome owners due to its compact size, the 12-Inch Compact Mower also features a 6.5 Amp motor, a 12-inch cut swath, and a height-adjustable deck.
Another tool that combines two tools into one is the EASYFEED™ 14-Inch String Trimmer/Edger ($54.99 MSRP). The EASYFEED™ 14-Inch String Trimmer/Edger allows homeowners to trim or edge grass with a wheeled edge guide for stability. It also lets homeowners easily and reliably feed the trimmer line with the simple push of the EASYFEED™ button, putting control back into the homeowner’s hands without the hassle of bumping.
Finally, a simple solution to tackle trimming of shrubs and branches is the new 18-Inch Corded Hedge Trimmer ($39.99 MSRP). It features a dual-action blade, a powerful 3.5 Amp motor, and the ability to cut branches up to 5/8 inch thick. For those needing to cut through even thicker branches, the 20-Inch Corded Hedge Trimmer ($49.99 MSRP) includes SAWBLADE™ innovation with the ability to cut branches up to 1.5 inches thick. Also featuring a dual-action blade, this hedge trimmer utilizes a 3.8 Amp motor for tough cutting tasks and a full length trigger for convenient operation.
BLACK+DECKER lawn and garden corded equipment requires no gasoline to use and delivers the power you need. Available starting in February 2018, these products will be sold at retailers nationwide and come with a two year limited warranty and 30 day money-back guarantee.
