Any Reviews?

YES – Review reports are pretty good for the Black & Decker HT22. This is the newer version of the the HT512 model which will be discontinued over time.

One difference to expect from this newer model, is that the lock-on button has been removed. Obviously B&D have re-thought the safety aspect of a lock-on feature a decided to remove it.

One reviewer has had a problem with the switch on their trimmer after 9 months of use. B&D has sent them a shipping label to send it back under the warranty. They state that this was less than a week ago – no further report on this, so I would assume all has been rectified.

The star rating system have awarded it with 4.6 from 5 stars by 31 users who gave a review.
