40 V Lithium-Ion Hedge Trimmer is a Battery-Operated Alternative to Gas and Electric Hedge Trimmers
The Craftsman 40 V lithium-ion hedge trimmer has 24-inch dual action blade with 2/3" cutting capability. This gives you two feet of reach over hedges so you make fewer passes. You will also spend far less time trimming your hedges than you would have if you did them manually. You do not even need to pull out an extension cord. All you need is hedges that need trimming, this hedge trimmer and a charged battery.
Your 40 V lithium-ion hedge trimmer gives you maneuverability for areas that are hard to reach or require finesse. The back handle rotates so you can turn your blade however you need to safely and efficiently. With 2400 cut strokes per minute and a 30-minute battery life, you are looking at a tool that will cut 72,000 times before you need to recharge it.

Overall, others give this:
Received as a Father's Day gift and could not be happier. Lightweight, powerful, easy to handle, and unbelievable battery life. The trimmer gives the shrubbery that manicured appearance, something my old corded trimmer could not. Use this trimmer once and you will be hooked, and never go back to corded or gas powered trimmer.

Battery charges very quickly and then holds the charge for more than long enough to trim all my bushes. It is very powerful and has no problem cutting through thick stuff. It is nicely balanced and easy to manipulate. It is so much safer than having a cord that can be cut and has just as much power as a 110VAC version. Have not encountered any battery problems with either the edge trimmer or this hedge trimmer that others have experienced. I love the power and will buy the 40V blower and chainsaw when they are released!
This trimmer is very easy to use and handle. The battery had enough power to cover all of my bushes AND go back for some touch-ups. The twist handle is a great feature. The unit is very light and easy to maneuver to cut precisely.
The hedge trimmer is great! 5 Stars for sure. Powerful and long reach. Super sharp you do have to be careful with it.. Great battery life.. and best of all.. no more cut the extension cord

I just got my trimmer yesterday. Charged it up, while going through the manual. This is my first "green" lawncare tool. I was definitely surprised with the power level. It performed flawlessly, with no trouble what-so-ever. I have a lot of hedges/shrubs to do. I was contemplating a gas model, but decided to buy the 40-volt lithium-ion model instead. I'm glad I did. Now all they need to do is to add a pole-pruner & a string trimmer (.105 capable) to the line-up. I plan to add the chainsaw to my collection soon. Plenty of power, with no fading, for 2 hours non-stop (almost). The 180 degree swivel handle is a great feature. I am a D-I-Y guy, and love new gizmo's. This trimmer made one of my tasks much easier. I am impressed with this hedge trimmer.
Seems to be a good product. Did cut some pretty heavy brush (burberry). Too early to give 5 stars, need to see how it holds up over the summer.
I bought this 2 weeks ago and used it for 2 hours yesterday, it cut my trimming time in half, it is light and powerful, cuts almost 1/2 inch limbs. I wish i had this 5 years ago. I was using an electric hedge trimmer previously. More time to go fishing.
