Black & Decker Grasshog 18-Volt Cordless String Trimmer
If you're locked in a bitter battle with your neighbor over who has the prettiest lawn, you probably want to check out Black & Decker's new Grasshog 18-Volt Cordless String Trimmer. From the looks of it, the Grasshog is a convenient alternative to both gas and electric powered trimmers; no more 100' extension cord and no more of that brutal, "did I remember to add the gas stabilizer" feeling.
Powered by an 18-volt battery, Black & Decker's trimmer comes with a telescoping shaft to adjust to your height and an automatic line feed system. At seven pounds, it shouldn't be a problem swinging it around for a couple hours every two weeks. And when you're done trimming around trees and stone walls, with the push of a button, the Grasshog converts into an edger. Not bad for a tool that costs around $100.
The Grasshog comes with two 18-volt batteries and a charger.
As an added bonus, for a limited time, Black & Decker will throw in a companion airline ticket with the purchase of a Grasshog. The trimmer has to be purchased before June 30th, 2007 in order to get the ticket and the mail-in redemption form needs to be at Black & Decker by August 15th. Details here.
