You could never go wrong with Black and Decker. I have a huge yard with big Holy Bushes this trimmer just breezed right thru and it maneuverable and easy use. I would recommend this product to anyone who love a manicured yard.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TheMM Acceptable trimmer with a Great Reach
The trimmer has an excellent reach, the extra 2 in of reach make a big difference for me. The cutting capacity is good on most hedges, the old established for many years are harder to cut without using as gas powered trimmer. If you take your time you can cut almost everything. The really hard old wood or thick will require a heaver and more costly trimmer. Good trimmer for the price. Big plus is the lock on feature if you pull the enable button, then the trigger, then release the trigger, then the enable the system locks on until slight pressure is applied to the trigger.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Karl Great long trimmer for the $
Basic long trimmer does a great job reaching high spots. I usually use my friend's Lil Wonder with 30" blade which is the gold standard for long hedge trimmers. The handle housing is extra long so this unit really does the job of the 30" blade. I like the fact that it is really light at 5 lbs. This means I can stretch out with one arm while holding the ladder. I like the 2 sided blade which makes cutting fast and easy. Overall I am extremely happy with my purchase. Will it hold up over time? Probably because I only use it a couple times a year plus it didn't cost me much.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by goldtop61 good purchase
only used once on bushes & small tree but it performed well and cut through the thicker limbs no problem, will only need to use this twice a year max so i would hope it last a long time but time will tell !

Historically I've always purchased the best and most expensive tools you can buy. At my new house I only have a few hedges and they're all close to the house, so I figured I would give it a try. I was surprised with how well it worked. The rotating handle is a great feature.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Josh Well built. Easy to use. Great value
I bought this hedge trimmer to replace my 30+ year old Skill trimmer that finally bit the dust. I have a long hedge that acts as a fence between my neighbors yard and mine. It hadn't been trimmed for quite a while and was beginning to look pretty bad. I hopped down to HD to check out what was available. As this was a medium sized hedge and the only one I have, I didn't want to break the bank for an expensive gas trimmer & I'm not a huge fan of battery powered yard tools, so that was out. This B&D seemed to have the most features and longest blade for the price.
I have used it a few times since purchase and early returns are excellent. It is very easy to shift angles from horizontal to 90 degrees right, to 90 degrees left. It cuts through everything (including a couple of the neighbors fig branches... whoops!). If you have a small hedge or a few small hedges and a long extension cord, I would highly recommend this product. I wouldn't recommend for commercial landscapers.
