Black & Decker Lawn Tools

I am not sure what you think of when you hear the name Black & Decker.  For me two things come to mind.  First is a company that has a long history of making products.  Second is the Dust Buster.  I remember those old Dust Busters. While they were a cool invention and meant you didn’t have to break out the vacuum, it would last for about two minutes.   Just enough time to pick up those 8 Cheerios.  Good thing battery technology has changed because now they are night and day.  Speaking of that, we will be having...

Black and Decker 20V 22 in. Lithium Hedge Trimmer LHT2220 – Review

For years I have used an old green-corded Black and Decker hedger.  I have left it out in the rain, dropped it, cut branches that are way too big for it and generally abused it.  It still works like a charm.  The only issue I had with it was that I kept accidentally cutting extension cords.  The cord just had to go!  I was eying the 20V edger for a while, I don’t have a lot of bushes but enough to keep a hedge trimmer busy for 20 minutes or so.  Cordless lawn tool batteries have come a long...
