Craftsman New 40 Volt MAX Lithium-ion Battery Lawn & Garden Equipment
Spring is here!! While some of you are still thawing out from all the snow, it may be time to start thinking about your yard care needs for this year. Spring showers bring green grass, flowers… and lawn maintenance.
The Craftsman brand has introduced an innovative lineup of new 40 Volt MAX Lithium-ion Battery Lawn & Garden Equipment designed to help the homeowner tackle a variety of lawn maintenance tasks – from lawn mowing to hedge trimming. Craftsman has sent my family the Craftsman 40V – Lithium String Trimmer and Edger to facilitation this post.
Included in the 40 Volt MAX Lithium-ion Battery Lawn & Garden Equipment line are these products:
40 Volt 12-in. Cordless Chainsaw
40 Volt Cordless Push Mower
40 Volt Cordless Hedge Trimmer
40 Volt Cordless Line Trimmer & Edger
40 Volt Cordless Sweeper
The upgraded 40 Volt cordless collection is powered by a 40 Volt MAX lithium-ion battery for a long runtime and includes a state of charge indicator so the user won’t lose power in the middle of a job. We have a half acre back-yard which usually would have us recharging a battery or adding gas in past trimmers. Using the 40 Volt Craftsman we had no issues with running out of juice!! Even did the front yard and edged the driveway too.
My teenage son was my model to capture these images for all of you. First of all, we found it super easy to assemble. Straight out of the box all you need to do is attach the handle and the guard. That was all! After you charge the battery you are ready to go! You can adjust the position of the handle and the height of the tool to make it perfect for you.
It was so nice not to have to pull on a gas motor cord, mix oil and gas, recharge half way through working or find a long enough extension cord to reach the edges of our yard. We found it super easy to trim through thick weeds using the powerful transmission and easy thumb dial speed control adjustment. Along with the 13 inch cutting path, which made covering ground fast!
This super light-weigh trimmer only weights 10.3 pounds makes it were just about anyone can use it without putting a strain on your body.
In the past we have had to continually tap (or bang!) the trimmers we have had on the ground to feed the line. This trimmer does not require you to do that!! I repeat, you do not have to tap to feed the line! It automatically feeds! We LOVE this feature.
Then with a simple push of a button you have an easy to use trimmer.
We are not super fans of the Craftsman 40 Volt Lithium String Trimmer and Edger! The powerful battery, transmission, speed control, and user friendly features gives this line a Thumb Up!

The automatic line feed feature sounds really nice. I’ll have to mention this to my hubby.
They make good power tools. The only one that I use is a lawn mower. The others are too much for me.

Jen Pine says
You said “we are not fans of…”; I’m assuming you meant “now”? Wish I had lawn and garden tools like these to help my Dad out in the yard and garden!
Jasmine Stanford says
Wow tools like this might make my man actually WANT to do the yard work!
Maria C says
Haven’t tried this brand yet. Guess we need to check them out. Thanks!
Katherine Pickering says

Sandra Watts says
Craftsman is good quality. I have always liked their stuff. Oh and thanks for the reminder. My weed whacker is not working so I need to get another for this year.
Michelle Renihan says
My husband would love one of these
Really nice equipment for the summer! I love that the weed trimmer auto fills the line. I cannot stand having to bang the trimmers to get the line to feed.
Emily Endrizzi says
Craftsman makes wonderful products. Living in an apartment where yard maintenance is not our responsibility, we don’t have a need for any items like this, but I will be recommending this to my parents!
Jerry Marquardt says
Craftsman has always been a great manufacturer of tools, and this also looks like an awesome piece of equipment.
Debbie Welchert says
Craftsman has such great products and my dad always swore by them. I have a young grandson I would love starting him off with craftsman’s products starting with the cordless line trimmer & edger. He would just love it.
Megan A says
Looks awesome, I’m in need of a replacement weed whacker!!
Dale Hunsberger says
Wow! This is great! I could use the trimmer. I have fibromyalgia and don’t have the strength to pull a rope.
Sue M. says
I know my relatives in Minnesota need a new trimmer for keeping up the lawn up at the family cabin, I’ll be sure to let them know about this, thanks for posting!

Good timing that I saw this…I need to buy a new weed whacker and I like that this shows the amount of charge it has and is an upgrade to the 18v whacker I am replacing. It’s always good to get recommendations or you are just taking your chances. So thank you.
Daniel Scott says
I have been a fan of Craftsman tools for years. I’m sure their weed whacker is made to last just as the rest of their tools. Reliability is key when one relies on their tools to make their living. I’m glad that this tool lives up to my standards.
I’d love to have a trimmer with an edger. That would come in handy. Thanks for sharing!
They make good tools. Craftsman is the first name that comes to mind when I think of power tools.
They make good equipment. We need a new mower and looking at these right now.
Lindsey L says
I could def use some of these around my house!
When it comes to lawn and garden equipment, I think Craftsman is a very reliable brand. Thank you for sharing this post.
Nice system! I hope the batteries are better than they were a few years ago. Had to ditch my cordless Craftsman drill for a Ryobi because both battery cells died & wouldn’t charge again. Only had the thing for a year. Anyways, nice review!
Sue M. says
Craftsman makes the best products; it’s nice that they have good batteries that will last long to help get the work done fast!
all of those equipment only takes 40 volt? amazing !
Sarah L says
I’m glad I don’t need these. Live in condo where outside is done for me.
Sarah L says
This is good equipment if you have to do your yard by yourself.
