neighbor guy was having a yard sale this past weekend, i went over to see what kind of stuff he had that i just couldnt live without. he had a older black & decker hedge trimmer and i just so happen need one. would ratherhave a gas one but this one will do the job. 

here it is:

all i had to do was spray some pb blaster on the knives so they would move better.

Be careful and use a heavy enough (gauge) extension cord when using this, and don't cut the cord!

I have one that has more than outlasted the competition.  They don't make them like that anymore.   The last Black and Decker I saw new looked to be plastic everywhere but the knives and the cord.

That's from th days when B and D was a good brand name. That was before they bought the Dewalt name and put it on the good tools and used B and D for the homeowner tools.

he was telling me last nite he had a couple others but they was plastic. i told him i didnt need any other ones but ill keep i ear open for him. i like the older tools since they was made to last. i picked up a real old circular saw a few years ago for free. the guy said it would only half work and would get hot. all it needed was new brushes and now it works better then the new junk they make now days.

I don't know bout the gasser DS.  These electric oldies are goodies, and no dang fuel lines to fall apart, and not know it till you go to use it.  If you already have a good long cord, you're way ahead to just stay electric.  I've threatened to bury electric wires & strategically place outdoor plugins & do away with gas weed eaters!

The gas powered ones are heavy as well.  I have a battery powered rechargeable which works pretty well for the limited amount of trimming I have to do.

I do as well, a Craftsman, with lifetime warranty....even on the battery!  Light duty for sure, but Teresa uses it & likes it fine.
