Black + Decker New 60V Cordless Power Tool Line

Black and Decker recently came out with an all new 60V cordless power tool line. The new cordless power tool line is going to be called Powercommand and features outdoor power tools running on their new 60V battery platform.

As part of the Powercommand 60V line are a String Trimmer/Edger, Hedge Trimmer, Blower, and Mower. The batteries include a 1.5ah and 2.5ah 60V battery. The batteries have built in fuel gauges to show the remaining battery charge.

The new 60V MAX* EASYFEED™ String Trimmer/Edger (13 inch) (MSRP $169.99) allows homeowners to easily and reliably feed the trimmer line with the simple push of the EASYFEED™ button, putting control back into the user’s hands without the hassle of bumping. The tool easily converts from trimmer to edger, eliminating the need to switch tools in the middle of a job.

The on deck battery charge level indicator easily lets users see how much charge is left in each battery directly on the unit. AUTOSENSE™ Technology senses the thickness of the grass and automatically adjusts the power level accordingly to optimize runtime. Lastly, a single lever with seven height adjustment settings lets the user easily adjust the blade height from 1.5 to 4 inches.
