Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Vinh Good cordless pole hedge trimmer but need to have some design improvements
This is a good cordless pole hedge trimmer. I've used it twice so far, and it did the job that I wanted. Thus, there are couple complains or suggestions for product improvement. The trimmer's head is heavier than tail, so lifting > 60 degree angle, you will get tired after few cuts. I wonder why isn't motor moved down to mid-section? The trigger at end of pole is good if you reach and cut the top of the tall bushes; thus, for lower or short range, extend your arm just for squeezing the trigger is wasting the energy. So, I wish there would be 2nd trigger in mid-section, so that we can operate equipment with both hands. Over all, this product is good; other than couple design improvements that I just mentioned, I would recommend it... THANKS.
PS: included batter does not last long - approx. 12 minutes operating continuously. So, instead of spending $116.32 [price @05/2016], I would suggest to get same one without battery/charger for 1/2 price and buy upgraded battery [Model # LB2X4020-OPE] + rapid charger; they'll get your job complete. Hope it helps. ;=))

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RHL This is a great purchase!
This product could be one the wisest investments I've ever made. At 77 years of age it is not too prudent for me to climb ladders in the searing heat of the Nevada desert, especially when the temps. reach 115 % The "cordless trimmer" allowed me complete safety while standing on the ground. What would have taken at least an hour, trimming a ten foot tall olive tree, was completed in a few minutes. The battery life exceeded my expectations with plenty of power left to do many evergreen bushes which border the side of our home. It's simple, fast, and doesn't leave you exhausted at the end of the day. Kudos to folks that dreamed this one up....sensational!

I have the cordless handheld version of this and was looking for the same quality and performance with an extended reach. Power and cutting ability is pretty poor, getting stopped on even small branches. Balance is awkward and very heavy. Was going to return it, but procrastinated too long.
Stick with the regular 22 in. 20V MAX ion cordless trimmer, which cuts through anything that fits in its teeth (much stronger than the pole version)

This pole hedge trimmer is a little heavy. I am 5'1", female about 125lbs and was able to handle this tool. I was able to reach the tall hedges. I like that it is cordless, sturdy and easy to use.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CCC An excellent cutter for all yard trimming
Cutter is powerful for trimming. Light weight with long handle and variable trim head allows fast and easy trimming. My gas cutter is too heavy and more power than I need, plus very difficult to get to longer away cuts. This is simple and can cut quite a distance a way. Also just above ground level without having to bend over. No back pain from bending over and holding out a heavy cutter vs a simple long handle light tool BUY IT!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tnp Great, but has its limitations
The product was easy to put together and was both surprised and pleased with the light weight and the effectiveness of the product. Only problem is I have a huge hedge that covers the perimeter of my property. The battery life and power only lasts about two hours at best. So I can only do a section at a time, charge the battery before I can continue on. Solution was to buy another battery and swap out when the battery power depletes. As for cutting effectiveness, I have no complaints unless you come across a thick branch. But I'm not sure an electric or gas hedger would be any more effective in that situation. In short, I am retired in my late 60's and found this to be the perfect tool to trim and maintain my hedges even when standing on a ladder to do the tops..
