      Better than anticipated
      Landscape Co bid $500 to do our overgrown hedge. I bought this, and am 2/3 of the way through. (big job) Lithium Batt lasts about 35-45 Min. Honestly, I am in my 60's and that's about all I can do at one time. Battery was recharged in an hour. I have done 2 full recharges, and several top-offs. This thing goes through everything I need, even the evergreens branches along the drive. And no blasted cords! Unless you are using this commercially or have a very large property, I don't know how you can lose for $75 delivered to your door!

      GOOD TRIMMER - VERY POOR BATTERY LIFE
      I bought this trimmer July 2011. Seemed to work well. After 14 months the battery would not hold a good charge but the charging station said battery was full. I contacted my local Sears store to find out (sorry out of warranty by 2 months) should have bought the lithium -ion battery since sears has problems with the other battery. WISH I KNEW THAT 14 MONTHS AGO. So, now 2 yrs later and same battery it will not charge at all. I begged Sears to give me after warranty/good will help on a new battery. Looks like that will not happen. FYI- I also have a very old weed-eater cordless hedge trimmer that runs circles around this newer craftsman.

      Effective Cord Free Trimmer

      This a very effective trimmer providing for efficient hedge trimming without the burden of a cord. I would have rated this unit higher if it came with the larger capacity battery to provide extended operating time. The compact battery gave me about 20 minutes of work time.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Powerful Cordless Hedge Trimmer

      This unit is great for doing all sorts of hedge trimming work, when stringing out an extension cord for greater that 100 feet is necessary, and the equivalent power of a corded type of hedge trimmer is still required. This is also a fantastic way to introduce the Lithium-Ion battery and charger to one's existing C3 portable power tools. My use of the product involves trimming back black-berry vines from two ponds and a stream on an acre and a half of land.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Good Product, bad battery

      Unlike some of the others here, I question if they updated the reviews after they owned it for a year or two. First year I would have said the same thing, works well, not too heavy, etc. but the battery now dies after about 5 min and they are expensive to replace. I see lots of battery complaints under the 19.2 Volt C3 tools where they describe the same issues. Since the battery costs as much as 2/3 of the unit my wife actually said stop wasting money on this thing..and we went back to using our Craftsman corded model. I have other tools from Porter Cable that I use under much more extreme circumstances (circular saw, recip-saw, drills) and have had zero issues with the 18V batteries dying on me. Based on the battery issues and the reviews of others using C3 battery technology I would not recommend any of the products unless you want to spend $40-50 per year on a new battery.

      Light Weight

      Very good product. Purchased for my wife and is very light weight. Cuts through most shrubs with ease. Battery is interchangeable with my tools.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Light Weight, Easy to handle and cuts well

      Have used it twice and trimmed up seven bushes (40 feet) quickly and with no problems. Great not having to pull the power cord. Wife liked the light weight and ease of handling.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Great Hedge trimmer, Great Price

      My property is surrounded by hedges; this thing gets a lot of use especially in the March - October time frame. By a lot of use, I mean about 3-4 hours of uninterrupted use 2-3 times per month during that time frame. This is really light and quite powerful. With the included battery, it's no problem to use this to trim the top of hedges that are about 8 feet tall; holding the trimmer with only one hand. I have and recommend the 4.0 amp hour batteries (item # 935702) that last a lot longer than the compact battery that comes with the kit. I usually get just over 60 minutes on one charge from the larger batteries and maybe 35-40 on the smaller battery. Bought this to replace one that I bought 2 and 1/2 years ago that quit working. In my opinion, 2 and 1/2 years was a good life for this thing. Like I said, it gets used pretty heavily.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Great lightweight trimmer

      Great lightweight trimmer that cuts with some authority. I suppose a gas powered version would be tougher but for trimming up and shaping shrubs this works just fine. I have a bunch of C3 batteries and tools so this was a nice addition to the collection.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Great little hedge trimmer

      I have a lot of tall bushes and this is just the ticket. Its lite and so easy to use. The little battery life is excellent,but the next size larger would be perfect. Like I said I have a lot of bushes. My gas hedge trimmer has been relegated to very heavy trimming.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Great product

      I have always wanted a cordless trimmer. When I saw this one and the pricing, I had to have it. So far it seems like a sturdy well built unit and looking forward to spring to start using it

      I would recommend this product to a friend.
