Rated 1.9 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Keep Looking So... I read all the reviews and decided to take a chance on these clippers. Initially I was impressed by the blades and how well they cut. I thought the reviews were all wrong. Used it every week for a few weeks and just after I disposed of the receipt, you guessed it. The unit would not hold a charge. No warranty service without a receipt. So, I opened the unit up expecting to be able to service part the batteries. They are NiCads and are not available for replacement. Take my advice. Buy the black and decker 3.6 volt as it will last much longer and it can be serviced. Enough said. July 2, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by worst purchase I was looking forward to gardening and trimming with this product because the design made it easier to use and less taxing on my hand. However, after about six uses the blades were dull and it wouldn't cut well. The battery never lasted very long. Then, after less than a dozen uses, the battery quit holding a charge. It was not repairable. Terrible durability and quality. NOT recommended for anyone. May 20, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't Buy - Pretty Much Junk Like other reviews. Doesn't charge long. Battery died and will not charge after few months. Also, the blades were pretty dull and you sometimes had to hold the grass up and cut through. Not a good product. May 17, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Junk grass shears Shear is junk. Battery provides low power even after a few uses. After 10 or so uses, battery does not hold a charge, and you throw away this piece of junk. May 10, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Battery fails to fully charge I bought this last summer to trim around my fence. I used it twice last year ans when I tried to use it this year the motor runs slow as if the battery is low. I left it plugged in for a few days and it still ran slow as if the battery would not charge. I do not recommend this model, keep shopping. May 7, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Lack of quality. Made in China of course! These shears are useless. They simply do not cut grass very well at all! They chew like dull scissors. Cordless shears used to be a quality item made by both Black and Decker and Homelite. Not anymore. This is my second pair in 2 years and both are junk. Home Depot should do more research before putting such inferior products on their shelves. Thirty bucks for wasted time and money!!!! October 8, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Thank you for the improvements!! I bought one of these at the beginning of the season as was pretty frustrated by how they performed. I took them back expecting to just give up and go across the street to buy a competitor unit. But when I complained to the store associate they pointed out that the model had been upgraded. New blades cut MUCH better!! Thank you!!!! November 6, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't buy it Don't waste your time with this model. The 4.8 volt motor is fine, but the blunt end blades and small opening just push the grass away. You have to hold the grass and saw through it. July 12, 2014
