BLACK+DECKER MTC220 3-in-1 Trimmer/Edger and Mower Review
There are some products that you can just tell were designed with specific thought or purpose in mind. This versatile all-in-one trimmer, mower, and edger just oozes versatility and practicality out of its sleek and efficient design. This product is among the best products out there for anyone with a small yard.
When it’s attached to its mowing deck this product cuts a twelve inch swathe as you push it. It’s weed eater function comes into play when you push down on a small pedal on the same deck, which detaches the handle, neck, and blades from the ground unit.
The neck and handle of this tool’s shaft is also adjustable to allow for an easy and adaptable experience, as you cycle through its different functions. To be honest, this machine feels a bit like one is using a vacuum cleaner for grass. It’s relatively light, simple, and easy to move about.
Unlike a vacuum cleaner, this model of the tool is cordless and is powered by Black & Decker’s signature 20V Lithium Ion battery packs.
When your purchase the product, it should come with two batteries, which can be switched and interchanged as you work. As long as you keep one battery charged, this allows for a very long cutting time. So, is this electric lawn mower worth your time? Well, it depends, really. If you have a small lawn and plan to upkeep it often, then yes this a great product.
However, this machine only boasts a six amp electric engine and really isn’t suited for bigger mowing jobs. The weed eating function of this tool, on the other hand, should be able to tackle anything you’d expect out of a gasoline fueled trimmer.
Just don’t expect to mow anything bigger than ¼ of an acre with this piece of equipment alone and you should be fine. Still, it’s a great tool for trimming and maintenance and is so versatile that it’s really worth having in any tool shed for the weed eating and trimming functions alone.
