Rated 5 out of 5Â by BillC EGO ... Great addition to the line
I now have the complete line.... it is nice not to mix gas, worry about cutting extension cord... Battery does not make the weight unmanageable .... All of the Ego products have been great (Lawn Mower, GrassTrimmer and the Hedge Trimmer

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Norm Great concept but not all components are equal
I ordered the hedge trimmer without the battery because I had purchased one with the blower. The battery and charger are great. The battery charges quickly and packs a lot of power to get the job done. The hedge trimmer came without instructions for use or care. A small plastic tip at the end of the trimmer was broken in shipping but didn't seem essential so I let it slide. The trimmer worked great on the initial use. However, the blades rusted after that use. I had no instructions on how to care and feed the device. By default, I cleaned and oiled the blades and that seemed to help. It continues to work okay. However, it is dulling so that it does not cut as clean as it did at first and it is getting noisier. I guess if I get a year of use from it, I will consider that it paid for itself. The lack of durability is it's greatest weakness. I do recommend the blower!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by RearView48 Good idea, But...............
I was so excited when this trimmer showed up on my doorstep. I plugged my 4.0 amp battery into it and started trimming my hedge. I soon realized this trimmer was no light weight @ least with the 4.0amp battery attached. It really gave my forearms a workout that I did not expect.
The good side of this trimmer is that it is made really well and did an excellent job of cutting.
I would have given an Overall Rating of 5 if the weight was not an issue. Of course, I must confess my age may be a concern, I am 66 years old.
So, for the young at heart and a D.I.Y.er Go for it............

I purchased the hedge trimmer after I had purchased the leaf blower. The 56 volt battery system is great. The interchangeability makes it possible to have one battery and own multiple tools. Both tools get the job done well. They get the job done with battery power to spare. I hope they will some day offer an edger. If they do I will own one.
