[Lowe's] B&D 20V Max String Trimmer & Blower Combo Set $99 (Starting June 30)

Update June 29:

This combo kit is on sale again, this time at Lowe's for $99 (reg. $159) starting June 30, 2016.
Also, I can confirm from last week that Walmart still has these on for $99.98, so no PM opportunity there. Can still PM at Rona if that's closer for you than Lowe's or WM.

New deal at Lowe's here:

https://www.lowes.ca/string-trimmers-br ... erm=709998

----------

Update June 9:

Looks like Rona now has the trimmer/blower combo kit on for $99.99 (reg. $139). FYI for those that may have missed the original WM deal or Lowe's PM last week.

New deal at Rona here:

----------

Per Walmart's upcoming flyer starting June 2, 2016, they will have the Black & Decker 20V Max String Trimmer/Edger and Blower Combo Kit on sale for $99.98. I couldn't bring up the store code (31275291) online but the following links appear to be what you get in the combo kit:

http://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/black-decke ... 0195525615

http://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/black-decke ... 0195525612

If the 2 items listed above are the 2 items in the kit, then they should be packaged with 20V Lithium Ion batteries and are probably good for smaller properties. The trimmer sells for $78.64 and the blower sells for $84.96 regular price.

Has anyone purchased these in the past and have an input on quality/battery life/weight/etc?

This is an interesting deal, looking for inputs from people who used it before!

I believe only 1 battery will be with the combo if it's the same as the one I purchased last year. It's pretty light duty but good enough for what I use it for. The blower is smaller. I use it to blow off our trampoline, some light snow in the winter and a small amount of leaves during the year. The trimmer works well enough for smaller areas and not overly long grass. Maybe 15 minutes of run time but I've never actually times it. For me it was worth it because I have other tools and batteries I can swap. Still a decent deal without other tools.

I bought the same set for $99 at Lowes a week ago. It worked fine except the battery doesn't last very long. Perhaps I got a bad one...charge lasted barely 20 min.... Just returned it yesterday.

I just bought this one at Rona for $70. Better to keep this, or get the combo set for a little more?
Battery difference is 1.5Ah vs 2Ah but I don't know how that affects the performance/runtime.

I have 2x 20v, 2Ah batteries. So I can swap them out when one dies..

Bought this last year at home depot for same price and truly couldn't be happier. The battery doesn't last long, 20 mins seems about right for the blower, and the blower is under powered, but considering the price this is a good deal for those with a small yard.

unless u need a blower i think buying a ryobi hybrid (bare tool) for 99 from HD a better option. hybrid gives u the option of running on AC power and u can run on battery for remote corners (when u manage or if u already have another ryobi 18+ tool n battery)

That sounds about right for this

I just bought an AC Trimmer for $40 at Cdn Tire. But I do need a blower. Thanks OP, i'll try and pick this up.

I prefer AC power over Battery. Unlimited (local proximity) power! I wonder if i can hack it cleanly to use AC power.

It's quite a bit heavier I found compared to the bare 18V version at 40$, currenly back ordered, the P2031 with the 1.3Ah battery and 1h charger is 90$, I get about 15mins of runtime, 20 with the 1.5Ah and about 50mins with the 4Ah
I like how I can buy the plastic Ryobi blades instead of spools, 16$ for 2 pack, works great so far.

Thanks for all the feedback. I decided to pick one up for the folks to see how they like them. They have an older cordless trimmer that has some weight to it and this one seems quite light. Hopefully this should do the trick for their small yard.

The trimmer from WM is 10" vs Rona's 12". I can confirm that the combo kit only comes with one battery. No idea about the runtime yet but sounds like 15-20 mins.

I believe it's in store only as I've checked both the WM stock number (31275291) as well as the UPC (088591144996) on wm.ca and no such product online.

As HotDealSeeker mentioned above, Lowe's carries this same combo kit. I just checked and their current price online is $159.00. Could try PM'ing Lowe's and get AM's as well.

Thanks for the reply. Picked up at Walmart in store today and will probably put it through its paces this weekend. Both units seem light but durable enough for light duty I would imagine. Have to give them a try and see if I'm still pleased. Price seemed right to me. Only have a small yard to contend with so I'm good to go.

Thank you OP. Picked up one yesterday and tried it out. Blower indeed is under power but does the work. Trimmer is OK for small yard. Battery last 10 mins and still had power but I charged it since the manual suggests so.

And you could get extra battery from Amazon B&D 10 off 60 event:

2.0AH for $54.88 plus tax: https://www.amazon.ca/Black-Decker-LBXR ... 6&sr=1-103

2.0AH Extended Run time for $61.99 plus tax: https://www.amazon.ca/Black-Decker-LBXR ... 6&sr=1-111

4.0AH for $68.39 plus tax: https://www.amazon.ca/Black-Decker-LB2X ... 2C+20-volt


Update:

Lowes has changed their price on this kit to match WM's price however it's OOS at most stores in GTA.

Rona has this kit for $139 and most of stores seems to have stocks. Good luck with PM.

I don't own the Ryobi set and did research before buying B&D. It is because: This set is cheaper and the batteries go on sale at Amazon often.

If you already own Ryobi one+ then go with Ryobi set because you don't need to buy extra batteries. And Ryobi has more tool options than B&D.
