The Black & Decker 3-IN-1 Strimmer – Is it a trimmer, an edger or a mower?

Black and Decker have come up with a novel tool which combines three functions in one.

  1. It is a strimmer using a fast rotating line to clear overgrown areas.
  2. It converts to an edger with a built in guide wheel.
  3. Attach the wheeled base and it becomes a lightweight lawn mower.

The video below demonstrates these three modes of use.

Black & Decker make two versions of their 3-in-1 strimmer.
