I was recently doing research on another weed eater and happened to notice the Black And Decker ST1000 Electric Grass Trimmer. It was another one of the top 3 sellers online. Initially, I was a bit surprised since it didn’t look capable of all that much. But, I have to remind myself that everyone has different sized lawns and different needs for their trimmer.
I then realized the price. Wow! I didn’t realize you could even purchase a grass trimmer for such a low price. So I decided to purchase one for myself to try out. I figured after I got done using it I could give it to a relative or donate it to a local thrift store.

My Review Black & Decker Trimmer ST1000:
After I received the Black & Decker trimmer in the mail I took it out of the box and was pleased that there was little assembly required. Simply tighten two screws and you are ready to go. It is worth mentioning that the unit does not come with an extension cord, so if you don’t have one already, you will need to buy one.
The Black And Decker ST1000 comes equipped with a cord lock system. This is handy so you don’t have to worry about the cord coming undone while trimming. However, a large, heavy duty extension cord will not fit.
Before using this model, the Worx GT weed eater was the lightest trimmer I had ever used, but this one was even lighter. It weighs just 3.2 pounds! It is very short, though. So if you stand above 5′ 7″ or so, this might cause some uncomfort for you.
But, the good thing is, is that you shouldn’t have to use this weed eater for long periods of time. This trimmer is meant for very light trimming on small yards. If that’s what you need it for, then it’s perfect for you. But if you need it for anything more, I suggest a heavier duty model.
Like other electric trimmers, there is little maintenance required with this unit. And, it’s easy to store away and takes up little space. There’s no gas to keep, no batteries to charge. It’s environmentally friendly, too.
For under $30, I was pleased with the power and ease of use of the Black And Decker ST1000 Electric Grass Trimmer. I’m used to longer, heavier, gas powered weed eaters, so there was some adjustment for me. But, if you want a cheap, light trimmer for some light trimming and edging, this is an excellent choice.
