Good Product but
This is a good product but I have a few reservations.
Minuses: First off: you have to activate three switches before you can turn this thing on! It gets very tiring especially if you have to reach. The battery status indicator goes dead after a few minutes of use (although the battery still has lots of juice left).
Pluses: very good battery life. I purchased an extra G-Max 4.0 Ah battery. The unit comes with a 2.0 Ah battery. I was able to do about 100 ft of hedge with the smaller battery. I was impressed. It's powerful enough to cut 5/8" branches as indicated. Good extension but the locking mechanism drifts while in use. Overall: I'm happy with this product.
Wish: the cutting blade was at least 24"

promised by CPO and would order again from this company.

Excellent Hedge Trimmer
I use this trimmer to trim my hedges. It is light weight and the battery can outlast me. It is sharp enoght to cut through 1/2" twigs without any drag. Plenty of power for 50' of hedge row. This task is a pleasure with the light weight and power of this trimmer.

This is a great tool!
First of all, I don't usually do reviews. I rely on them, but don't get around to doing them. I was so impressed with this product that I have to say good things about it. Easy to assemble, light weight, lasts a long time. I have a lot of shrubs and I did not run out of power. I cannot say enough good things about this tool.

Yes, This Product Works Great
Yes, I was skeptical about this battery operated product. Most batteries don't last for anytime. I can honestly say this product made a LIAR out of me. Maintaining a One Acre lot is no easy task and holding my old heavy gas trimmer overhead just left me wore into a frazzle. I saw this product and decided to try it with skeptism.
It arrived and I put it to use right then. I could not believe how light it was and with the six different settings was making an old tiring job now get through with ease. I even tried the extended reach and what a difference my hedges and bushes look like now. I am most amazed at the battery. It is so "strong " and still at about 70% charge when I was finished. I am completely satisfied and will look at attaining other Greenworks products. The heavy gas machines are moving out at my place.
Take a look for youeself. I know you will be pleased too!!

The more I use this hedge trimmer the more I love it.
I have two acres of yard surrounded by woods. I can easily cut the brush at ground level as well as any thing higher up. It makes a big job fast and easy. It's powerful, light weight and the battery lasts longer than me and recharges in one hour. I am so impressed with the performance and quality I purchased the pole saw to get the high branches.

Very pleased
Powerful and does a great job. We previously had a corded extended reach trimmer. This one is plenty powerful, much quieter and easier to handle without the cord. My only complaint would be that it doesn't extend as much as I would like. The 6 1/2' advertised extended length must be to the tip of the cutting bar and it really only extends about 18". I wanted a gas powered extended reach trimmer, but they are $600+. For the price difference and ease of use, I would definitely buy this one again.

Old Man is now happy
Great trimmer allows you to trim and see what you are doing without having to be too close. Allows you to reach and trim without a ladder. Plenty of power to cut and plenty of battery to trim all my hedges and bushes at one time. Super tool really happy with the tool the preforming and how quick I was able to get jobs done.

Can this be attached to the 40 v pole saw? I need a hedge trimmer that will extend to around 10 ft. I have 20 ft bamboo I need to cut. I think the hedge trimmer would work. I'm not sure the chain saw would work as the bamboo would just move out of the way. Your thoughts on something that would handle this?
