As BLACK + DECKER are my Britmums live sponsor, I’m excited to bring you news of yet another innovative product.
A new concept for gardeners with smaller lawns or difficult-to-mow areas has been launched by BLACK+DECKER. The 3-IN-1 is a combined string trimmer, edging tool and mower, providing maximum versatility for a range of grass-cutting tasks.
Ideal if you have a smaller lawn, garden flat, or city home where perhaps your storage is at a premium, the ingenious 3-IN-1 from BLACK+DECKER combines the convenience, light weight and small footprint of a string trimmer with the stability and ease of use of a mower.
For difficult to reach spaces, such as small walled gardens, turfed frontages, as well as steep inclines or uneven ground, this easy to manoeuvre combi tool solves a multitude of lawn care conundrums.
The 3-IN-1 can be used as a conventional Strimmer® to tackle the tougher, more overgrown areas of a garden – and can then be quickly converted to edging mode, to achieve precisely perfect lawn edges, assisted by the built-in guide wheel.
For ultimate versatility in small lawn areas, the user can simply click the string trimmer into the lightweight, height-adjustable four-wheeled base, for more controlled and consistent cutting.
Available as a complete kit including detachable base and integrated edge cutting wheel, the 3-IN-1 can be quickly and effortlessly assembled as required, and dismantled after use for easy storage. And thanks to its compact footprint and form, the space-saving 3-IN-1 is small enough to be stowed away in a utility room or cupboard and won’t take up precious floor space in a shed or garage.
The 3-IN-1 is available in either electric powered (corded) at £79.99 or cordless 18V Li-ion £139.99 versions, whilst the wheeled deck will also be available as an optional accessory, compatible with a range of BLACK+DECKER string trimmers.
Award-winning innovation and quality
The BLACK+DECKER 3-IN-1 has been recognised with a Plus X Award for its exceptional innovation, high quality, functionality and ease of use. Plus X is the world’s largest innovation awards organisation for technology, sports and lifestyle products, and honours manufacturers for outstanding attributes in design and usability.
Sebastian Starck, director of marketing at Plus X, said, “The BLACK+DECKER 3-IN-1 is one of only a small number of products to receive an award in four categories. Recipients of Plus X awards must display a combination of utmost quality with leading-edge innovation. The 3-IN-1 easily met these criteria with its excellent, pioneering design and simplicity of use.”
Now in its 11th year, the Plus X jury comprises a panel of renowned, independent trade journalists from across 25 industries, and its awards are considered a recognised and respected ‘seal of quality’.
