      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 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.

      Great cutting, balance and Battery.

      I've used this for many little trim jobs, and a couple of bigger tasks with success. Batter stays strong for quite a while. Helps me avoid aggrevating my chronically sore back.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Does What I Need It To Do

      I found this to be light-weight and well-balanced. That, and the fact that there's NO STINKING POWER CORD to get all tangled up, makes this an absolute pleasure to use. The battery has enough juice for all my trimming and, even if it didn't, it charges up very quickly. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I don't know how other battery-powered trimmers perform. I'm guessing that there are some heavy-duty (and expensive) units available that might outperform this one, but this does everything I need it to do at a reasonable price.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Great trimmer.

      Bought this primarily as I have multiple C3 tools, and so a multiple of batteries. Hated the idea of trying to drag a power cord around to do any trimming, and didn't want to deal with the noise and mess of a gas powered trimmer. With the 4ah battery, I was able to clean out the perimeter of my 3+ acre property on one charge. As long as I didn't try and bite into anything too large for the blade slots, it happily munched thru any of the brush it encountered. More than pleased with it's performance. The key with any tool is maintenance; Keep the blades clean, lubricated and sharp and it will work as designed.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Does excellent job on shrubs, even fairly thick limbs.

      Front handle design is bad - I've broken 2.

      The front handle has broken on 2 trimmers. Both handles have broken in the same place near the attachment point to the trimmer body. There is very little plastic connecting the front handle and the body. I broke the first one and returned it for a warranty replacement. A friend broke the 2nd one in the exact same way. I've ordered a replacement handle but expect that it will also break shortly. I'm using the trimmer for trail work so it carried by the front handle for hours as well as being used for up to 1.5 hours continuous use (with multiple batteries).

      Great for a home owners yard.

      Not for really big use. Great for a small yard indeed!

      Easy to use!

      This cordless hedge trimmer is so easy to use! It's no heavier than a corded trimmer, but so much easier to maneuver! It's safer to use than a corded trimmer too (especially if you're prone to cutting the cord with the trimmer, as we were.).

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      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.
