Black+Decker’s innovative outdoor tools

July 2015

BLACK+Decker has announced additions to their collection of 40V MAX outdoor tools with the 40V Max Brushless Trimmer & Edger and the 40V Max 20-inch and 16-inch lawnmowers with AutoSense technology. These tools are part of a larger 40V Max family of outdoor equipment that includes hedge trimmers, sweepers, and mowers.

The new 40V Max Trimmer & Edger features a durable, high-efficiency brushless motor that provides more power and up to 30 per cent longer runtime than its bestselling predecessor. A variable speed trigger allows users to choose the optimal cut speed for their application which provides maximum control over power and runtime. The trimmer’s .080 line allows it to easily clear thick grass and weeds and an Automatic Feed Spool (AFS) system automatically feeds the trimmer line without needing to be bumped. This trimmer clears a wide area with a 13-inch cut swath, helping to complete yard work quickly and easily. Weighing only 7.5 lbs and with a soft grip arm support and a new inline design, the 40V Max Brushless Trimmer & Edger is comfortable and convenient.

The 40V Max 20-inch and 16-inch lawnmowers are the first Black+Decker mowers to feature AutoSense technology which determines the thickness of grass and makes power adjustments accordingly. For thicker grass, the mowers kick into high power while in lighter grass, the mowers lower the power output to conserve battery life and extend runtime. The mowers each come with two batteries, for double the run time. When not in use, the extra battery can be stored in a convenient compartment on the top of the mower.
