poor quality metal used as blades, motor not man enough for the job
I had the Black & Decker 560 many years until the blades got too blunt and was found that new blades cost almost as much as a new trimmer so bought the 516,
my hedge is 6' high and about 40' long ,
I just about managed to cut it before the trimmer gave up, soon got blunt and began jamming on even small bits of hedge, when i jammed it made a high pitched squeal and smoked!
as i bought this in the sales after the previous summer it was too long a gap to take back.
waste of money, 1 cut and straight to dump
