BLACK+DECKER 36 V Review – Lithium-Ion Strimmer with 2.0 Ah Battery (GLC3630L20)
Black & Decker has a long and proud history. They have developed a good reputation for durable and reliable products that offer value for money. If you are looking for a dependable cordless grass trimmer with a bit of extra power, this BLACK+DECKER 36 V cordless trimmer option is one to look at. The features do not end there and we will look at them in more detail.
- 36V Power
- E-drive technology for additional power
- 2.0 Ah lithium-ion battery
- 30 cm cutting diameter
- ECO or TURBO modes according to your needs
The above features should make it clear that this cordless grass trimmer is quite capable of dealing with larger gardens, more so than many of the previous models we have featured. The BLACK+DECKER 36 V cordless trimmer power combined with the E-drive technology and 30 cm cutting diameter provides the capacity for tougher and larger areas of lawn.
The ECO mode will reduce power with the option to switch to TURBO mode for tougher situations. ECO is also quieter and will give you more run time.
The automatic single line feed system keeps the line at the ideal length with minimal fuss and effort.
It has both a primary as well as a secondary handle with a comfortable non-slip grip. This makes the BLACK+DECKER 36 V cordless trimmer comfortable to operate and reduces fatigue.
Naturally, the additional power and features add a bit to the weight but most will find the 3.5kg trimmer to be manageable and easy enough to move and operate.
This trimmer has a decent 36V power which is further boosted by the E-drive technology. The 8,500 RPM is effective on tough, long and even wet grass.
The charge time is roughly 90 minutes. Depending on the mode being used and the grass conditions, this can allow you to cut up to 3,750 linear metres.
One can use the BLACK+DECKER A6481-XJ Spool + Line. It comes with a generous 10-metre 1.5 mm diameter line.
The BLACK+DECKER 36 V cordless trimmer features an automatic single line feed system. This is convenient and practical and will feed additional line as necessary. This is more effective and less effort than most bump type feeders.
The head angle can be changed in seconds to make the trimmer into an effective edger.
The E-drive technology is a high-torque gear system. This gives the BLACK+DECKER 36 V cordless trimmer the power and torque for long or wet grass. This is often a challenge with the smaller trimmers. It also reduces clogging and allows for faster and more effective cutting with a 30cm cut diameter.
