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.

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.

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.
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.
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.

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 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 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
