Black and Decker BCSTA5362 36v Cordless Grass Trimmer 330mm
Battery AH Explained
The best way to describe battery amp hour is that this is effectively the size of your fuel tank, the more amp hours your battery has then the longer the battery will last between charges. More amp hours does not increase the power of a given tool.
Battery Voltage Explained
A tool with a higher voltage than another is a bit like choosing an engine in a car, the higher voltage will generally mean higher power & performance. As with cars though a bigger engine does not always translate to better performance so it is important to compare the specifications of tools at different voltages between different manufacturers.
Read 36 Customer Review(s) for Black and Decker BCSTA5362 36v Cordless Grass Trimmer 330mm
I have had 2 previous strimmers which have been ideal for my garden and allotment. This latest model has 2 changes - the eco and turbo choice is now not graduated and the handle has been radically redesigned to it's detriment. Not nearly as easy to manipulate as it was and I keep on catching my fingers in the triggers. Pity
Went for the 36V model for a bit more power, works very well on the allotment weeds and grass, doesn't blitz vegetation like a petrol strimmer, takes a little more time but the battery lasted perhaps an hour on first use so plenty of juice to get the job done. Excellent build quality, noticeably superior to some smaller brands, very easy to assemble, relatively light and easy to handle, telescopic shaft so goes down from about 6ft to 4ft for storage
happy with the strimmer and service by Tooled-Up
really pleased with the strimmer and the service from Tooled Up
I bought this model as much of it was compatible with my old strimmer which finally let me down after many years. This worked so I have spares. Seems just as good as the old one was
Arrived really rapidly, very little assembly required and works incredibly well.
Cost more than I really wanted to spend but it is a well made product and should last a long time.
Does the job
The strimmer works well. Very effective and the battery lasts a great deal longer than the Flymo unit we have replaced. I did purchase a spare battery "just-in-case" but so far has not been required though that may change in the spring/summer when the grass is growing. The Strimmer is heavy-ish and not that comfortable to use - it doesn't balance well, the arrangement of the handle support and trigger mechanism could be better. It appears to be robust but limited use to date.
Bought Black+Decker BCSTA5362 36v Cordless Grass Trimmer to replace in advance old model still working well after a number of years, but won’t last forever. Very pleased to find that this new, handleless model is just as robust and as easy to handle as the old model. Quick and efficient delivery by Tooled-up too.
Second B&D 36v strimmer bought, the last one is 5 years old and the electronics have failed also had a battery fail so a little disappointed. However, looking at alternatives the B&D one is still the best value by far and an excellent machine to work with, hopefully they have ironed out some issues and this one will last a little longer!
Hardly used but pleased so far
This is the second of my purchases of a Black /Decker strimmer find them very robust and easy to use. The extendable shaft of this model is a plus.
Got this to replace the original GLC3630L20 model as battery and charger had worn out and the bearing seems to be wearing out too. Disappointed that this BCSTA536 is not as good as the first model. I do not like the new handle design as it’s not comfortable to hold. Overall not as comfortable to hold. Some metal parts replaced by plastic, and the motor does not seem to be as powerful. The motor does not look as strong either. Even so, still good for the money, and does the job, but I do seriously miss the previous more robust and better cutting GLC3630L20 model.
this is the 2nd one of these i've bought a great machine but prefer the handle on the 1st model less cumbersome but that is just nitpicking
The strimmer works well. I found older models didn't last very long. I'm hopeful this one will last longer as it is effective at low speed. Certainly seems well built. I might have missed an adjuster, but it seems a bit short. Fine for me at 5'6".
I bought this strimmer to replace the old model I had, because the battery had failed. It was more cost effective to buy a new strimmer than buy a new battery ! Unfortunately, while it is a good machine at the price, I find it can be uncomfortable to use for longer periods, due to the new handle design, which rubs your upper arm when taking on longer grass. It is however more powerful than the previous model, getting through dense grass easily. Overall, a good product at this price point.
Best ever strimmer, I had my last black and decker stolen. Looked to buy a cheaper one but having looked at nearly every model I decided to pay the extra cash for this 36 volt model. It is pricey but I feel sometimes you have to pay for quality

Customer Questions & Answers
Q : Can you please advise battery life when selecting this product with the 1 x 2ah Li-ion option. Thanks.
A : Good morning, There are too many different variables to give a definitive answer I am afraid.
Q : I am a groundsman at my local football club. I am presently using edging shears. As you can imagine very time consuming, although gives a good finish. I would like a cordless trimmer for edging but also light trimming features. Looking for good run time and quick re charging. Also looking for good guarantee / warranty. Looking to purchase a cordless Blower /Vac so if features can be interchangeable so much the better.
A : Hi Graham, there are a few things to bear in mind here. There's a good chance that any cordless grass trimmer you're looking at will run on a battery that can also be used in a leaf blower - for instance the Black & Decker BCBLV36 shares battery compatibility with this machine. You can look at the tool range pages on our website to get a good idea what's available in the main battery platforms - however it's worth noting that power tools are usually classed as either professional or domestic. Black + Decker, Bosch Green and Einhell for example all have a domestic warranty, while Makita and DeWalt are guaranteed for professional use. This will usually give you a longer warranty (domestic machines are typically not covered if purchased for a business) plus you can generally get a wider choice of batteries and fast chargers in professional cordless systems, which will help you work more efficiently. They do cost more, but are designed to cope with a heavier work load. Whichever system you choose, when it comes to runtime, larger capacity (ah) batteries will help you work for longer per charge - you could also look for brushless tools which are more energy efficient and don't drain the batteries as quickly.
Q : Hi, which replacement spool and line do I need and where can I get it, I can't seem to see it on this site. I don't need it yet but would like to have one to hand when it runs out. thank you
A : Hi Lisa, the replacement spool for the BCSTA5362 is the A6481 which I've now linked up as an accessory on the product page on our site. It uses the same spool as the previous Black & Decker 36v strimmer (model GLC3630L20 / GLC3630LB)
Q : Hello. Any news about when this strimmer will be in stock please? I am trying to replace my Black and Decker strimmer GLC3630L20. It seems to be unavailable, but I understand that the newer equivalent is the Black and Decker BCSTA5362 36v Cordless Grass Trimmer 330mm. I only need the strimmer - not the battery or charger. My battery and charger (for the broken Black and Decker strimmer GLC3630L20) are fine and I think that they are the same as the battery and charger for the Black and Decker BCSTA5362?
A : Hi Sarah, you're right in that this model uses the same type of battery and charger as the GLC3630L20 so you'd only need the bare tool in order to carry on using your existing equipment. However unfortunately there's a bit of a delay expected for the next batch of these to come into stock. They were pencilled in for October but this has now been pushed back to mid December. This could change depending on circumstances beyond our control but for now we only have stock available of the complete starter kits with battery and charger included.
A : Stop the press! We have actually now got some of these available without battery and charger if you're interested (a bit earlier than expected and while stocks last of course)
Q : Hi - do you have any of the old B&D GLC3630L20 strimmers still in stock please? Want to buy that again, but your site only takes me to the new version, which I don't want given that reviewers comment on the extra weight of it (I have spinal problems).
A : Hi Ruth, I'm afraid we've completely sold out now, which is why it's redirecting to the newer version
Q : Do you know when the bare version without battery is likely to be back in stock?
A : Hi Colin, currently Black & Decker are advising we should expect these around the 4th of October (but this isn't definite yet)
Q : If this one is out of stock. What would you recommend in a similar style and price range but ideally including the battery and charger that can be delivered quickly?
A : Hi Pauline, I'm not sure where you're seeing that it's out of stock but the kit version with battery and charger is available for shipping at the time of writing? Once you've chosen 1x2ah battery and charger it lets you add it to basket, though the bare tool without battery and charger is out of stock. The closest alternative which we always try and keep in stock for immediate shipping is probably the Bosch AdvancedCut 36 which you can find on Product code 21021843K (although it does cost a bit more than the Black & Decker)
Q : What is the difference between this model and the GLC3630L (if any)? After a Google search for the GLC3630L it comes up with a link to your site but only this model appears so not sure why
A : Hi Stuart, as mentioned in a previous response the main functional differences are a slightly wider cutting width and a brushless motor (in this newer model) although they do of course have a noticeably different design as well. However they both use exactly the same batteries and you can use your existing battery and charger if you have other B&D 36v lithium equipment. The GLC3630L has now been delisted so in effect this is a direct replacement for it, especially if you do already have the battery and charger.
Q : Is this lightweight
A : Hi Trudy, I suppose it depends what you consider lightweight but the machine weight is listed in the main description (3.3kg). Cordless grass trimmers these days are generally fairly light and easy to handle, but as with anything you will probably start to get fatigued the longer you are using it for at any one time.
Q : When do you expect Black and Decker BCSTA5362 36v Cordless Grass Trimmer 330mm to be back in stock?
A : Currently Black & Decker are saying the bare tools should be available again on the 23rd of next month (August) but they haven't provided any info for the battery kits at this stage.
