Win a 20 Volt Black & Decker String Trimmer and Sweeper from Tool Snob
Yup, we're giving away more stuff for Father's Day. And what dad doesn't want a new string trimmer and sweeper? These are cordless too, so the days of watching dad try to mix gas, attempt to pull the starter, and ultimately throw the trimmer against the side of the garage are over.
Black & Decker is generously going to send these two tools out to the lucky winner. We just got done writing our review of these two tools and it's here if you're interested. They're pretty cool items. They're also compatible with a large line of B&D outdoor equipment from a little chainsaw to a hedge trimmer.
So to enter, just leave a comment at this post telling us how much aggravation your two-stroke trimmer has caused you over the years...or tell us why you want to win these...or clue us into your landscaping projects that you're looking to get done this summer...or tell us a funny construction-related story about your dad.
Also, don't forget to check out B&Ds Facebook page here (they've got a massive sweepstakes going on). The tools are also available at Amazon here and here.

I've got a nice Stihl brush cutter that will cut through small trees, but I left it home with my parents years ago. These days I just have a small yard & minimal trimming needs. Would be perfect for a battery powered unit, no cord, no exhaust & just small enough for a reasonably sized battery.
I already have a no gas lineup but they are all corded. My problem is that my trimmer is a hand me down from my grandfather (who passed) 18 years ago, so who knows how old it is. Anyway with the electric motor at the end, and nothing at the top it is unweildy. I don't really mind the cord on my mower, pruners, or edger but on a string trimmer it sucks.
You know, I've always hated weedeating. I've always thought it was the green pulp flying everywhere, but after reading this, I'm thinking maybe it is the 2 stroke trimmer. I mean, you have to mix the gas just right, it's hard to start. I'm frustrated before I even begin.
Maybe if it could just pick the trimmer up and start trimming it wouldn't be so bad.
