Maybe the unit is overheating due to a lack of ventilation and it has been a very hot summer. Make sure that the intake vents on the unit are open and clean, free of grass, debris, dirt etc. Easy to clog up with all the stuff flying around when running.

What do i need for replacement string? Can i go heavier or stay with the smaller string? This is for mastercraft 20v grass trimmer. thanks


the size of the string is critical in electric driven trimmers
it does have mass and the thicker string will over load the motor
stay with the recommended string size and keep to the recommended distance to the grass being cut
string line cutters work on the principle that the tip speed of the string is what does the cutting and that means that the first 1/2" of string cuts the grass
the rest back to the hub acts like a brake as it is dragged across the grass and slows the cutting speed and loads the motor
remember that the machine is designed to trim edges and not to cut down growth-- that is a job for heavier duty units

Cut the electrical cord on craftsman electric hedge trimmer. Does not run. Is there a reset ?


NO, no reset. The only thing causing it to NOT RUN is an OPEN circuit condition caused by the cut wire, OR an IMPROPERLY made splice, OR improper replacement of the cord!!!!!

Get somebody that KNOWS what s/he is doing to replace the damaged cord.

HOW DO YOU SHARPPEN BLADES ON ELECTRIC HEDGE TRIMMER BUSHWACKER?


proper method is to use what is referred to as a "lapping table" professional sharpening shops have these , look in your yellow pages for scissor sharpening , but if your a skilled hand and have some time then a simple fine file will work as well , keep same angles on cutting edges ,approx. 30 degree angle

Electric mower keeps slowing down and stopping


Two things come to mind. The brushes in the motor should be replaced. (Get them at a local motor repair shop, but take one of them in with you to get the correct one). If that is not the problem it may be the switch in the handle that you turn it on and off with. The switch may be corroded or bent. Good luck...Lee

Despite replacing batteries for lawn trimmer, the trimmer goes too slow to cut grass.


i would say the drive motor has seen better days,,,it would be cheaper to get a new one that try to get yours fixed up

How to Sharpen a Black and Decker Hedge Hog sharpen-black-decker-hedge-hog-800x800.jpg Maintaining the sharpness of electric timmers can made landscape trimming easier with beautiful results. Electric hedge trimmers make trimming hedges and bushes easier and quicker than using manual hand-powered trimmers. Electric trimmers, the most popular type in the U.S., cost less and require less maintenance than gasoline-powered models. Electric trimmers are used most often by homeowners with the Black and Decker Hedge Hog series being very popular. While they are not premium products, electric trimmers like the Black and Decker Hedge Hog trimmer can keep trimming reliably for years with proper maintenance, including sharpening the blade's teeth.
Difficulty: Moderately Easy Instructions Things You'll Need
  • Work table
  • Two medium size clamps
  • Dremel tool or similar hand-held multi-purpose tool
  • Grinding wheel attachment for hand-held tool.
  • Dremel 971 (or similar) aluminum oxide grinding sharpening stone with a tip small enough to cover the flat facet of a Hedge Hog blade tooth
    • 1 Unplug the electric trimmer before trying to sharpen the teeth.
    • 2 Clamp the electric trimmer to the work table using two clamps if necessary so the Hedge Hog is firmly held down with the blade teeth accessible over the edge of the work table.
    • 3 Insert and secure grinding tip in hand-held multi-purpose tool.
    • 4 Maneuver the grinding tip so it is perpendicular to the facet of the Hedge Hog tooth.
    • 5 Sharpen teeth in one direction, being careful to try and maintain the same cutting edge angle on the sharpened tooth of no less than 35 degrees.
    • 6 Make same number of grinding passes/grind the same length of time a few seconds on each tooth.
Tips & Warnings
  • This task should take about 15 minutes.
  • Keep a light touch; too much force can break the grinding surface.
  • For best results, insert the sharpening bit slightly less than all the way into the tool.
