When the hedge trimmer is used extensively or in a wrong way, the blade can become blunt which makes the product useless. Replacing the blade without care can be dangerous, especially when handling sharp blades. This guide could also be used on how to remove the blade in case of maintenance.
Although it doesn`t require regular sharpening, you can do so if the trimmer blade becomes nicked from hitting hard surfaces or dulls from extensive use. The Black & Decker website recommends using a sharpening stone or fine-toothed round file to sharpen the blade on your trimmer.
Press down on the saw`s arbor-lock button and rotate the blade until the locking mechanism engages. Use the blade wrench to remove the arbor nut holding the blade in place. To loosen the nut, turn the wrench in the same direction as the blade cuts. Retract the saw`s upper blade guard and remove the old blade.
As such, we recommend sharpening after every 50 hours of use or so, to ensure consistent cutting performance and to enable you to enjoy your hedge trimmer for a long time to come. You can also find all the important information you need about sharpening your hedge trimmer in the operating instructions.
It`s not necessary to lubricate the blades of a hedge trimmer to prevent rusting because they are pre-hardened rust resistant steel. However, you can use a lubricant to clean the blades, we recommend a light spray on lubricant such as WD-40 to give a thin coating.
Start by unscrewing the blades from the clippers and cleaning them by dipping them and letting them sit for up to five minutes in isopropyl alcohol. Wipe them dry and sharpen them by running them across the sharpening stone at a 30-45° angle. Do that for both blades up to 10 times.
To make sure your clipper blades give you the smooth haircut you are looking for, you have to oil the blades. Using clipper oil reduces friction and pulling at the hair in addition to helping maintain the life of the blades.
8. Slice. Recommended Tool: Chef`s, paring, or serrated knife. Slicing is a general term that means to cut across the grain into thin, uniform pieces. Almost every fruit or vegetable can be sliced, as well as other ingredients like cheese and bread.
As such, we recommend sharpening after every 50 hours of use or so, to ensure consistent cutting performance and to enable you to enjoy your hedge trimmer for a long time to come. You can also find all the important information you need about sharpening your hedge trimmer in the operating instructions.
In general, it is recommended that you replace your hair clipper blades every three to six months.
Most string trimmer manufacturers supply attachments to convert the tool into a brush cutter. The most common attachment is a flat blade with three equidistant cutting arms, such as the Stihl brush knife, but some manufacturers supply cutters with teeth that resemble those on circular saw blades.

I have the black and decker 22″ hedge trimmer.  I haven’t used it more than say 3 times.  All of a sudden as I am trimming a bush, it goes out.  I tried a different plug, extension cord, etc.  and it still doesn’t work.  So I know it is the unit.  Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.
ANSWER : If you only used it three times from new then I would take it back to where I bought it.

Blades wont move when power connected. Stripped it down. Motor is fine. I think it must be the gears attached to the blade unit
ANSWER : Either the gears, OR SOME machines have a “CENTRIFUGAL CLUTCH” [a safety feature] between the engine and the blades.

IF your machine has this feature, then it’s possible that the clutch has worn out and is slipping so badly that the blade won’t move.
