Positive review of 40V battery powered hedge trimmer
Trimmer performs well and battery charge lasts as claimed. When tool is set to 90 degrees to trim tops of shrubs, the extension link flexes in torsion. So cutting is fine if feed rate is slow. Cutting of approximately one quarter up to three eights inch diameter branch is ok. Overall tool operates well and as claimed. I would recommend this tool for homeowner use.

Avid Do-it-Yourselfer
Flexible but heavy
As far as a price point, it is a bargain when comparing other 90 degree hedge trimmers. The battery is a benefit in there is no cord, but it adds to the overall weight, which can get tiring when holding up for tall hedges. The shaft when extended flexes a little when cutting, not making it difficult, but awkward to control at some angles. The flexible head is nice and offers a good range for many cutting positions. As far as an investment, if you have some tall hedges that require occasional trimming, it is a great bargain and worth the purchase.

Delivered with alacrity and runs like all Greenwotks products-beautifully.

Super Hedge Trimmer
Admittedly, I was a little skeptical at first. However, after using it to trim our hedges, it performs as advertised. Although we have used it several times, the battery maintains power for enough time to complete the job, and we have a lot of hedges. It is very easy to use and functional with the tilting head and extension.

Cuts and clears more than you want to pick up!!
I've yet to run a battery down before I ran down! This will cut easily through 3/4" privett and small branches, but will cut dwarf nandina bushes which are very soft and bendy. The head tilts, so this works great for flat topping bushes, just set the angle, balance it and walk. It reaches maybe 5 to 6 feet back over deep brush. So far it's just what I needed. Oh and I like that the batteries will indicate the amount of charge left, keeps you from walking away from you garage, just to have to come back and get another battery. Hopefully it and the chain saw will make it for the long haul.

Good tool to own.
Battery life was a surprise it cut my silverthorn hedges 6' wide tops and 6' wide in height all about 160' long with out a charge and it was work out.
A shoulder strap would have been used on the top cutting for height consistently.

Great hedge trimmer
Best hedge trimmer - reaches high area without need for a ladder. I had the Ryobi, broke in a year, and not as powerful. This trimmer is easy to use and battery lasts a long time. It would s value priced by CPO.

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?
