black and decker lht2436bThe Black and Decker LHT2436B hedge trimmer which is also referred to by B&D as the Black & Decker Bare model, which I believe stands for bare, as in just the trimmer without the battery.

The letter B in the title also defines it from the similar model Black and Decker LHT2436 with the LBXR36 36 volt lithium-ion battery and the quick 36 volt charger.

This model would suit those people who already have another B&D tool that uses the same 36 volt as it’s power source thereby making a saving by sharing the rechargeable battery.

Watch the video below which is short and shows the 36 volt trimmer in action. Further down the page you will find quick read bulleted points of the Black and Decker LHT2436B review. If you would rather read all about the Black and Decker LHT2436 with the battery use the link.

Any Reviews?

YES – Although the reviews that I’m reading at the Amazon site are for the LHT2436 with battery etc. This still gives us a very good measure of the end users experiences with the performance of the above mentioned model which is after all just the Black and Decker LHT2436B with a battery fitted.

Review statistics are from the 60 reviews rating it at 4.6 from 5 stars, bearing in mind this is for the LHT2436 model.


The pros are many, such as the power from the 36 volt battery being able to do all the work they needed done well before battery power was used up and of course no cord problems.

Surprising this one, as the user even took the trimmer to an overgrown area of grass with good results.

As one owner states. Now the owner of a sweeper, a lawn mower, an edger to go with the hedger in their toolkit, bye, bye to cords.


Found it a little underpowered compared to the corded model they had used, although they still preferred this cordless version having no cord to worry about.

This reviewer states that they have found other reviews which reported that the 6000 square foot of hedging being cut was a bit optimistic and the real figure should only be 2000 square feet at 60 Min’s run time between charges.

The thickness of branches between the two jobs could explain the difference in figures which in any case are still very respectable. Still gives the trimmer 5 stars.
