Overall, others give this:
The Craftsman 40-Volt Lithium-Ion Hedge Trimmer is lightweight and powerful. The 40-Volt battery lasts a long time. Saved time by not having to take out the electrical cord, find a plug, and when done trimming, unplug and put away. The cord always get in the way of trimming, cordless is the way to go!
I used the trimmer for the first time today. I was pleasantly surprised by the ease of operation and the cutting ability of the trimmer. This machine cut my trimming time in half (no pun intended)! If it proves be reasonably durable and the battery life is adequate, this will be a great trimmer. Only 4 Stars for now - It has to earn the 5th!

Replacing an older gas powered trimmer with this 40-volt battery powered model. I have to say I am very pleased with the power and quality of it. I have about two hundred feet of hedge to trim. It is up to the task. It is much lighter to use. I will not be sore tomorrow as I normally would be with my old one. I pulled it out of the box when I got it home and was able to trim the entire hedge plus assorted bushes around the property with whatever charge came from the factory. I would presume it was less than fully charged. unless there is a huge drop off in the coming months and years I will be very happy with this purchase.
I have always used a manual pruner to do the shrubs but this year I decided it's time for a change. I ordered this hedge trimmer and now I wonder why it took me so long to make yard work easier. I absolutely love this trimmer. It's very balanced, love having no cord, easy to carry, relatively lightweight, like that you can change the positions of the handle, and the battery lasts quite awhile. It doesn't take long to recharge the battery, I will order an extra battery to interchange. I have several pom-pom evergreen trees that need a lot of sculpting and this worked so good. Very easy to sculpt with, does great trimming on Rhodys and trees. It is a very safe tool to use. Oh, did I mention I am officially a senior, at age 61, you can do it!
This hedge trimmer packs plenty of power into a light weight and powerful design. On the first use I trimmed roughly 25 bushes and had no loss of power. Highly recommended.
Waited for awhile to decide on whether or not it was worth replacing my corded black and decker. I'm so mad I waited so long! It cuts effortlessly and I've used it to trim bushes around an entire office building without even using one full charge! I really enjoyed watching my neighbor try to crank his gas powered trimmer - by the time he got his gassed and ready I was almost done!
This 40volt cordless hedge trimmer is lightweight,powerful and the battery lasts for over 8 hours.the charger charges the battery in less than an hour.
I just used the hedge trimmer for the first time yesterday. It worked very well. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star rating is because there isn't a way to lock the power in the on position. It's a little bit of a pain to have one hand dedicated to keeping the power on.
