Customer Reviews

17 in. 2.7 Amp Extended Reach Hedge Trimmer-DISCONTINUED is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very low quality I had high hopes for this trimmer but the quality just isn't there. The top handle is a bit flimsy, but the real problem is with the extension handle; it is simply a poor design that comes loose and will only worsen with time. I agree with the post that mentions the non-locking trigger as well. For maximum reach on a big hedge while working on a ladder I need to be able to lock the trimmer on, and this trimmer doesn't allow that. Save your money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap Construction The black plastic handle broke the first time I tried to use the trimmer. Returned it the next day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product works very well...cuts well, is light and is easy to use. While I am please with the product and it works very well, it would be nice if it had a built in extension of up to 6 inches in the handle. That would aid in trimming large or tall bushes. It would also be nice if there was a lock on the trigger that makes the trimmer run. It is somewhat difficult to hold the trigger on while trimming across large bushes so locking it in run would be a help.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from works well but not made very sturdy Has a good reach and cuts good. The handles seem very weak. The bar started coming apart after first use. Don't think it will last very long. We'll see!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does a good job on the light stuff This is a decent hedge trimmer but does not do well on anything above 1/4 inch diameter. The articulating head does come in handy and is a good feature. The handle does not telescope like similar models that were previously sold.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great trimmer! I just bought this after reviewing many different types of pole trimmers. After reading many reviews, I decided to buy an electric corded pole trimmer since they sounded like they had the most power for the price. I put it together in 5 minutes and trimmed my 12 foot arborvitae hedge. I had extended the pole and it was pretty heavy so I shortened it and it was very manageable and still reached up quite high. I was very pleased with the performance and surprised that it cut through some of the thickest branches! I would definitely recommend this!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from homelite Ut44180 trimmer Good idea , bad execution, first unit broke the first day out of the box.. HD service desk took it back and I went home with a replacement , one year later unit came apart again, black handle and motor housing connection is too flimsy and weak. Tried to find new motor housing , no longer available ,. Don't waste your money and time on it . HD should dump Homelite !
