Since the Toro Hedge Trimmer has a 4.0 amp motor, does that make it perform better than the Black & Decker with a 3.8 amp motor?

Answer: 
Barbara,
I don't know, they seem like they would be pretty similar. Based on other folk's reviews,
This was the machine for me. It's lighter than most, and cuts through half inch branches with no problem. I've cut thru a little bigger...I just give it a little bit more time, I'm careful with it, and it performs great. I do not cut bigger branches often though! I would get an appropriate hand saw.

You will not notice any difference between the motor performance between a 3.8 amp motor and a 4 amp motor. Consider other features that could be important to you such as blade length, assembly requirements, etc.

Depends on what you mean by performance. The amp rating tells you how much current the tool's motor can pull before it starts to overheat, or bog down. The more you overheat a tool, the shorter its life. Amps do not always tell you that one tool is more powerful than another, as it can depend on the tool's design.

Depends on what you mean by performance. The amp rating tells you how much current the tool's motor can pull before it starts to overheat, or bog down. The more you overheat a tool, the shorter its life. Amps do not always tell you that one tool is more powerful than another, as it can depend on the tool's design. One thing that amps do influence is the type of extension cord you should use, also taking into consideration the length of cord. Home Depot has a good Extension Cord Buying Guide that illustrates this concept as it applies to a tool's maximum rated amps. http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/catalog/servlet/ContentView?pn=Extension_Cords_Reels&storeId=10051&langId=-1&catalogId=10053
I own the Toro 4.0 amp and have been very happy with it in cutting your average bush or hedge. Neither of these tools are designed to cut anything too big. Follow the manufacturers recommendations. Read Less

Answer: 
Basically, you are talking about such a small amount of amperage difference that you probably won't notice it. Actually, both are well balanced trimmers, will do the job for a medium sized yard and are easy to handle. Both are rated to handle branches up to around 1/2" diameter.

The 4 amp Toro trimmer I just purchased seems plenty powerful for my medium yard trimming. I haven't looked at bougainvilleas lately so I don't know how thick they can be. I forget the size rating for the Toro, 9/16 or so. I have only used it twice but haven't jammed it yet..

Answer: 
Can't really compare this product to other amperage products, however, I have never had a problem with doing hedge edges and cutting through things smaller than 1/2 inch. In order for this product to perform well you will need to make sure that you are using an extension cord that is rated (gauge) for the distance you plan on using the tool from the outlet you are plugging it into.

The trimmer has a lock switch. To start the trimmer, slide the lock switch backwards, towards you, then squeeze the
trigger switch to turn on the hedge trimmer. The trimmer will stay on as long as the trigger switch is squeezed. The lock-off switch may be released once hedge trimmer is running.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 176 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AAAAH This product is pretty much as advertised, that is it cuts branches up to the size the manufacturer clamis it will cut. It's a little heavy to lift for overhead cutting. Overall I'm satisfied with the product. May 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great trimmer! I used it the other day and it worked great. I would highly recommend this trimmer to anyone! May 3, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Toro Hedge trimmer Works great , but would be much better if I didn't have to pull down a button to get the trigger to work (kid proof). May 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just what I wanted This is exactly what I was looking for. My old trimmer is dull and tired. Toro is a good brand. The price was excellent. I've nearly finished trimming my shrubbery which had become seriously overgrown. August 14, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by An adequate trimmer The trimmer came ready to use right out of the box. My on issue is that my extension cord did not work properly on the first try. I had to adjust it and it worked fine after that. March 22, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Solid Equipment I bought this trimmer when my old one finally went bad. This unit has a much stronger motor and can handle branches about twice the size. I have given it some pretty tough use since buying it and it is great. The only thing I have to adjust to is the safety switch set up, it has to be pulled back before squeezing the trigger. It seems a bit awkward but I may get used to overtime. February 10, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Open Box - Tisk tisk Disappointed that box was liberally taped apparently to reseal it and bottom of trimmer was scratched. But... I needed to use it with no time to return it, so I took a chance. Only used it part of one day so far, but found it does what needed doing within the expected limits of a fairly inexpensive product of this kind. Based on very limited use, I'd recommend it, but wonder about Home Depot selling an open box product without both advising of same and offering a substantial discount. I'll think twice about purchasing from HD again via Internet. November 21, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very good for the cost. I have been using a low end gas trimmer that seems to always need repair. If this trimmer lasts only 3 years it will more that pay for itself. It doesn't have a great deal of power compared to the gas unit but cuts surprisingly well. I'm sure the very sharp cutting edge is the reason. I think if i keep the blade super sharp it will be great for my needs. December 15, 2015
