Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by yardnut performs like gas and has awesome run-time!
I bought this GreenWorks 20V hedge trimmer with the string trimmer and leaf blower, as a set. (See my review for the string trimmer.)
This hedge trimmer delivers awesome performance (about like my old gas powered hedge trimmer) triming quickly and easily through thick over-grown holly bushes and cypress branches. It's lighter weight than gas, so I can reach areas using one hand and trim above my head for extended lengths of time.
With the amazing 6Ah lithium-ion battery, I've been able to hedge trim continuously for 1.5hrs before depleting the battery (and my arms)!
Of all the GreenWorks power tools, this hedge trimmer appears to deliver the most power and performance with the most battery run-time. I'm very happy with this trimmer and use it regularly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jeeptigger Great trimmer and batter
I purchased the grass trimmer first and used it twice on roughly 1/3 of an acre and trimmed all the hedges and bushes once on one charge.
The battery (not included with this unit has 4 led test lights to show charge. The long blade cleanly trimmed through branches and leaves and was well balanced for use.
I replaced a troybuilt unit and am glad to not have to deal with the gas, oil, noise, or tune-ups without sacrificing power.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bonnie Incomplete product
I ordered the trimmer because of an attractive price, not realizing that, in order to function, it was necessary to purchase a large battery and battery charger. When it was difficult to find these components, which would have made the complete trimmer much more expensive, I returned the charger, very frustrated with the product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GSUEAGLE Very Good Trimmer
Its great to be able to walk around and trim with cordless freedom. Weight isn't too heavy and the 6Ahr lithium battery lasts a long time. Not designed for thick branches but trims all my bushes just fine. For $35 its a bargain...as long as you have the weed eater/trimmer from greenworks(charger and battery.
