April showers wreaking havoc on your yard? This lightweight Craftsman weedwacker is down to $83

Temperatures are climbing, and you know what else is? Grass. We're not sure about you, but our lawns already need some major TLC. Craftsman is here to save the day with a sale on lawn and garden power tools, including a great deal on the Craftsman V20 Weedwacker, the tool that strikes fear into the hearts of unruly garden beds. Say adios to weeds, tall grass and other eyesores. And if you need more advice, check out these other yard-improvement tools — all for under $25 — and read more about how to begin preparing for a beautiful summer lawn.

At just over 6 pounds, this cordless trimmer is easy to handle and features two different power settings. One focuses on performance, while the other hums along at a lower speed but with a longer runtime.

💰 Why is this a good deal?

This is the lowest price of the year so far, and it comes at a perfect time — just as spring showers bring an explosion of weeds! This is also the lowest price on the web for this particular model.

🤔 Why do I need this?

If you have other Craftsman tools from the V20 line, this fits in seamlessly. You can also store it with Craftsman's versa-track wall organization system, which makes for easy storage of all your lawn tools when they aren't in use.

And when it is in use? The automatic line feed means you don't run out of line until the spool is empty, while the "turn to edge" feature makes it easier to edge along sidewalks, flowerbeds and more. Don't worry if you're a little bit taller or shorter than average: The telescoping pole means you can adjust the trimmer to your height, while the adjustable handle makes it easier to control without putting a lot of strain on your arms and shoulders.

💬 What reviewers say

Whether you want the best-looking lawn in the neighborhood or just want to take out some pesky weeds, the Craftsman V20 Weedwacker is a solid choice, shoppers say.

👍 Pros

"I don’t have a very big backyard, so this was a great option as opposed to a gas trimmer," said one fan. "It works well, is easy to handle with the relatively light weight, and I don’t have to put premix in it! Rotating the head to use it as an edger is a cool feature."

Another reviewer wrote, "Great power! This trimmer will cut through anything reasonable, and we’ve not had to replace the 'floss' in two years!"

"I have little upper body strength but can use this a couple of hours at a time without shoulder or arm pain," said a third buyer. "It extends to a comfortable height so I can stand up straight."

👎 Cons

"It won't cut down little trees, but it takes care of the weeds and grass in hard-to-reach places. The original battery life is about 20 to 30 minutes," shared one user.

"I love the freedom of no cord! It cuts my trimming time in half," said a final fan. "However, the battery dies before I can finish the yard. I have a fairly large yard (1,250 square feet), so a second battery is a must."

This yard-taming gadget is backed by a three-year limited warranty, so you're covered if you go a little too hard on yard work this spring.
