Rated 1 out of 5Â by MickN 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 !

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Marcus 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.

The black plastic handle broke the first time I tried to use the trimmer. Returned it the next day.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by jrumple 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 5Â by Rock 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!
