Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Nice!
I decided on this trimmer as the price was right and for the small size. It shipped in its original manufacturers box, which was very flimsy and when I opened it the cutting bar was bent. I bent it back into shape with no issues. It is fairly light weight, cuts very well and is extremely loud. The neighbors down the block thought that I was using a wood plainer it was so loud. Overall it was a good purchase and the performance is nice. Don't let the 16" length fool you as it cuts a nice path quickly. The only (con) is that the electrical cord retainer/holder opening was too large and would not hold my cord in place as described.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Maria Great and easy to use!
It was easy to use and light weight for petite female like me. Me and husband are doing yard work by ourselves, so getting hedge trimmer was a big help for us. The only thing was it makes a loud noise. Maybe all hedge trimmer makes a loud noise just like leaf/snow blowers and lawn mower.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by roro Perfect for small yard
Only assembly was with a screwdriver putting shield on (see photo). No biggy. Only 16 in long, so best for small shrubs. Also makes it lightweight, which I needed. Good directions for best way to be safe and get a nice shape. Needs your own electric cord. Found a good online sale, and shipped to store for free. (pfft, who goes to HD for just 1 thing anyway!) Easy, quick, pickup at Customer Srv, and nice employee.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AkaSybyl Great product for a great price
As a woman, I wanted something light and easy to use but also with the safety features that would keep me from cutting off my hand. I love that you need to pull a button back BEFORE you can start the trimmer which prevents an accidental start up before you are ready. I'm always in a hurry and an accident just waiting to happen so this prevents ending up in the emergency room. The trimmer is light weight and just the right size for the trimming I need to do. I'm really happy with this purchase and would definitely recommend it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bilu Unless your hedge is really small, so is this tool, get the 22" version.
I was really torn whether or not to recommend it. As I mentioned in the title, if your hedge is really small this will do. But for my bushes even the 22" version does not reach some places. I know that the extra $20 almost doubles the price of the tool and it buys you only 6 more inches of blade but it does make disfference.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JanisH Perfect for my usage.
I was looking for a lightweight, easy-to-use hedge trimmer and this fit the bill perfectly. I never used a hedge trimmer before and I had no problem trimming my barberry shrubs. My only (slightly) negative comment is that I didn't realize it didn't come with its own cord. That may have been noted somewhere in the description, but I failed to notice that. I just saw that it said "corded" and assumed that meant it had its own cord. In any case, I do have a heavy-duty, grounded extension cord that was exactly what I needed, so I was good to go right away. I think that the fact that it needs an extension cord to work should be mentioned more prominently in the description.
