Rated 1 out of 5Â by Yearsontheyard Worst piece of garden equipment I have ever owned.
I have about a 25 year old Black and Decker trimmer that is getting dull and the motor is weak, but it does not owe me a thing after the hundreds of hours it has run. I decided to buy the new Homelite that was on sale. The big problem is that unlike the Black and Decker where one bar is stationary and the other moves, both move on this machine. It is good in theory, but the result is that instead of grabbing the hedge and the other bar cutting, it shakes everything and the result is shredded looking twigs. It is as loud as a lawn more, too. Back to still using the old B&D.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by micd worst purchase ever
When i purchased this item i thought it was a good buy at first but then i was using it one day and bent the blade on it. I took it back to the store to get it repaired because i had the factory warranty and i had bought an extended warranty on it also. I get to the store they call up homelite and they inform them that they do not make a replacement blade for this model and the homelite rep says that he is suprised the hedge trimmers are still running. So to make a long story short home depot could not do anything for me and neither could homelite. So i have a pair of broken hedge trimmers i have had for only 2 months and used twice that i can't use anymore and i wasted 32.00 on them. I will never buy a homelite product again.

I bought this trimmer about 4 years ago and used it a lot. Recently my daughter wanted to borrow it and so I gave it to her and bought a new one. I am reviewing the old one which is still cutting as well as the day I bought it. It is lightweight and handles very well. I certainly would not hesitate to recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Neiko why pay more?
I have a all for one set up and was wanting a hedge trimmer attachment so I could clean up the few bushes I have. over 70 bucks for the attachment, so I went with the cheaper trimmer and its great. it has worked great for me and saved me some cash. it dose feel a bit cheep but its cuts right threw thicker hedge.
