Before writing this review, we wondered that whether people will consider us as a review website that only says a good thing about the brand Black and Decker. Well, the reality is that we do not have anything to do with this company and neither do they pay us (though we wish to be paid). Today, we are going to do another review on one of Black & Decker’s products and it is a string trimmer and edger. The model of this product is Black & Decker String Trimmer ST7700. As always, we will start with the features and then will follow the features with pros, cons and then the final words.
The Features of Black & Decker String Trimmer
The product started being sold in the mass market from early 2013 and from then till now, the product kept its growth. One reason can be the brand Black & Decker as they are strong enough to hold the market for a long time but another fact can be the quality. Obviously, the product has enough features to attract that big number of customers for a long period of time. What are some of those features? Let’s have a look.
Good for Maintenance
If you have a garden which does not need a lot of care and maintenance then this is the perfect product for you to go for. The product is a good fit for those types of gardens which do not enhance automatically on every single day. You know those grass types that rise high in every single minute? Well, if you have one of those types then this is not a good option for you, but otherwise, for simple cleaning and trimming purposes, you can always depend on this black & decker string trimmer.
The trimmer will always cut a 13-inch path for your garden. Now, 13 inches is a lot if you think about small gardens so you need to calculate it properly before taking the final decision. If your garden is a close tie of 13 inches, you should go for a smaller version of the trimmer. On the other hand, if you have an average or big garden, this is a great fit.
4.4 Amp Motor
If RPM (Rotation per minute) is considered then this is possibly the best black & decker string trimmer that you will find in the market. The 4.4 Amp may not say a lot about the motor, but the rotation power is a lot to handle. If you have always wanted to go for a product with high RPM, this is the chance for you to go for it.
Though the price is not a direct feature, it is definitely something that we all consider before buying a garden trimmer. If you consider price, then you will love this product as this is one of the most well-priced models out there in the market.
It is important that you have a glance at the summary of all the pros of this product. Often we do not understand the benefits that we will receive from a feature list. In those cases, the pros section helps a lot:
- Great RPM
- Wrist Fatigue Protection
- Comes with 2 years warranty
- Lightweight (The weight is less than 5 pounds)
Reading the cons is more important than reading the pros. The Con is something that you cannot do anything about later on if you buy the product. Therefore, make sure that you look at the cons at the very beginning, even before investing a penny.
- This is an old model
- At times you will find a problem with the feeding system (which get resolved after a restart)
- The cord will fall out often
Overall, this is not a must buy the item that you need for your garden and grasses. This is an item which is good to have and an overall good addition to your garden, but your grasses will not die without this. Again, there are better versions out there with a bit pricier. If budget is not your problem, you must look at those other options before taking the final decision.
