Trimming Abilities of the BLACK+DECKER LHT2436

The BLACK+DECKER LHT2436 has a great to offer the consumer when it comes to trimming. This little workhorse can provide both comfort and power to the operator.

The hedge trimmer has a 24 inch blade that makes it a practical choice for hedges, bushes and shrubbery. This backyard friend allows up to 2400 cutting strokes per minute. The dual action blades cause 40 percent less vibration than the standard single blade. This can benefit the operator by cutting down on fatigue and stress to hands and arms.

The POWERDRIVE transmission packs a punch and can takes on branches up to ¾ inch. With pre-hardened and rust resistant blades it has the ability to stay sharper longer.

Added Comfort Features

The BLACK+DECKER LHT2436 comes with a full wrap around handle that can provide comfortable gripping in all cutting angles and is spacious enough to allow you to wear gloves. This is really awesome as I wear gloves almost all the time when working outdoors so this is great additional benefit.

The full length trigger has a soft grip with allows for a comfortable hold and secure grip while operating. Additionally this is model has no assembly required. I love it when I get equipment that doesn’t require head banging and teeth gnashing before I can take it out to use. Nothing I swear can be more frustrating than spending hours trying to figure out how to put something together.

Eco Friendly

In an age where more and more people are becoming aware of the impact that we leave on the environment and wanting to do something about it BLACK + DECKER has provided us with this wonderful battery operated hedge trimmer that doesn’t compromise on performance and power.

With its 40 volt Lithium Ion system there are many benefits over the previous battery technologies and gasoline powered models. With the ability to provide more power in smaller batteries, the lithium battery can also provide the consumer with a longer lifecycle of the battery itself which means less spent in replacing old and worn out batteries. The newer technology also allows for a longer charge time duration off the charger that for you means more time spent in the yard getting things done. With a quick hour recharge you can tidy up the brush, grab a nice glass of ice tea and take a few moments rest in the shade before tackling more.
