Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FG55 Great Purchase
I have been really impressed with this product it is built well and is not overweight, it cuts well and battery life is excellent! I highly recommend this hedge trimmer and it works with all the star series 18v products the 4.0-5.0 batteries are recommended, though the 3.0 amp battery works it performs better with the higher amperage batteries.

This trimmer is great for the home owner with a moderate amount of trimming to do. Wish it was a little more powerful, but it's adequate considering the moderate price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sandy5255 WOW! As powerful as gas, but no fumes or mess.
I live on an acre and use this hedge trimmer every weekend to maintain the hedges around my home and the neighborhood median shrubs. I also own my own outdoor power equipment company. I received this as a gift and wasn't sure about the power of 18V lawn equipment, but let me tell you, there is no lack of power here! WOW!! I use a 3.0 Ah battery because that is all I need. I have a 5.0 Ah battery too because I have a slew of Makita 18V hand tools. Makita makes the best batteries and chargers, hands down. I use the Makita 18V hand vacuum too. I love that I only need one type of battery to power ALL my tools and equipment!!! Next I am buying the battery powered chainsaw.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nickkin Glad I have it
The best part of all the fact no gas added, just use a charged battery and go to work. The only part I don't like is no battery and charger came with the trimmer, it's the only battery powered anything I own that didn't come with a battery.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Larry 1 battery lasted for ever...
I had a major trimming project to complete. I was going to trim the road that leads up to my driveway which is about 1.5 miles long. So I started out at one end with my brand new Makita cordless hedger and about 4 batteries. About 4 hours later after finishing up the complete road I only used 1 battery for the entire project. Actually that battery could have still provided power to do more work. The hedger not only cut every small item that I asked but even the occasional 1/2 stick that go in the way. I'm very happy with my purchase and thought at the start I should have purchased the 36 volt model but I'm very happy with the 18 volt unit. I would strongly recommend this to anyone.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bill No More Cord! Plus, it is a strong hard working tool
NO MORE CORD.
We have a large yard and my wife hate having to put away a heavy 100 ft extension cord when she is finished. Now she is happy.
Great for working all day or for just triming something small.
Easily cuts 3/8* branches.
