$10 Trimmer Deal

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.

That was a real deal, the battery was worth way more than what you paid. My wife is wanting a new one as she has an old one with a cord that keeps falling out. It is not pleasant to hear her cut weeds.


What a great deal!
