Question about Black & Decker String Trimmer Cordless 12" 18V

1 Answer

12 volt grass hog cordless

The green light won't come on when trying to charge the battery. I think I may have a bad battery, but can't get the battery compartment cover off. I pushed on the releases on both side, but can't get it open. Can you advise?

BLACK AND DECKER CORDLESS POWER PACK FOR 12 VDC SLA BATTERY #243215 for a Grass Hog Cordless Trimmer


Sorry, but I haven't solved any problem. I'm still waiting on the experts to solve my problem from June 16 on my trimmer not operating even with new fully charged battery. As for your replacement, I would suggest retail stores that sell trimmers, such as Home Depot, Lowes, Ace hardware stores or maybe B&D website.

It does not turn on even if it was charged for 24 hrs


When it charges, does the red light come on on the charger? Some of the CST2000 chargers make bad connections, and they don't actually charge.

Make sure the red light is coming on when you're charging the battery. If the light is coming on and you still can't use the trimmer after charging, you'll need either a new battery or a whole new battery pack (the black handle of the trimmer).

Hope that helps!

;How do you lengthen the string? (Have the grass


To lengthen the string:

- Turn the Grass Hog upside down
- Push in on the two release buttons on either side of the spool (they're orange)
- Pull the spool head off and spin it to release more string while you pull the string with your hand (make sure it is still fed out through the hole in the base)
- Pop the spool head back into place

Test the Grass Hog to make sure the string is not too long. If it is you'll hear it cracking against the plastic guard on the base.

Grass Hog Battery #243215 (12 VDC SLA) and Charger #371415-11


Open the unit up (six cross-head screws). Inside you'll find a 12V 5.0AH rechargeable battery, like the kind used in many home alarm systems.
You can get a replacement at most battery stores (they'll even pre-charge it for you). Somewhere around $20, I guess.
