Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great trimmer at a reasonable cost I have a number of small hedge plants that have to be trimmed a couple of times a year, and azaleas that require trimming about once a year--about a day's work or less overall. Since it would be used so little, I saw no reason to buy a larger or more expensive one. This 18" trimmer is very powerful for its size, and easily cut thru everything I asked it to cut, but is light enough to use one-handed in tight places. The trigger safety switch is a little awkward until you get used to it, and has a tendency to stick a little when the trigger is released, which keeps it from shutting off immediately. I have only used it twice so it may loosen up a bit with more use, or a little WD-40 might help it. My only complaint, if you can call it that, is that the slot molded into the handle to hold a loop of the power cord to keep the cord from coming unplugged during use is not deep enough to hold the size cord needed to power the tool, and kept coming loose. That should be corrected on future models. As noted, I've only used it a couple of times so have no idea about long-term performance or durability, but I'm really pleased with its power and performance so far, and for the money I think it's a great little trimmer.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Overall, a good trimmer. Very good value for the money. I'm a 65 year old woman, so I appreciate that this trimmer is fairly light weight. Works extremely well. June 4, 2013
