We got an amazing deal on a Black & Decker trimmer yesterday.
My husband has a gas powered Stihl that blows through the brush
like it was butter. It's heavy and you have to wear protective gear.
I can't operate this because I can't hold it. I also want to trim
around garden beds more frequently than he runs the Stihl for the big stuff.
I asked for a light weight, electric trimmer for just me.
Stihl makes one but it's so well built that it's heavy to me.
After rejecting anything at Wal-Mart, since they didn't offer a demo model,
(how can I see if I can hold it???),
we went to Lowes and found a nice
3.5 AMP model that was compact. Just about that time a women
handed me a 6.0 AMP trimmer that she had been holding.
She was looking for a battery operated model but this one was
electric. The manager rang it up at $10.
It was on closeout since an upgraded model was in stock.
I got both, I couldn't pass up a $10 backup.
It turns out that I can hold the $10 model, which is the stronger one.
It did a great job for me for the type of trimming I need to do.
I don't have to spend $40 on a backup battery either.
