Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TheeMax 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GardenGirl Finished yard work in no time!
I purchased this on-line based on the reviews. It did not disappoint. I have a yard full of tall ornamental grasses (pampas grass, zebra grass, and maiden grass) that die out each winter leaving me a lot of work trimming away dead growth in the spring before the new growth comes in. My old trimmer was a B&D that did me pretty good for many years but the last 2 years, the blades kept jamming. It took me forever to trim last year as I had to keep stopping to un-jam the growth that was caught in the blades. Man, I wish I had bought this at least a few years back. Like a knife thru butter! I purchased an electric trimmer because I didn't think I could manage the weight of a gas powered trimmer for long periods of time. This one has a longer blade than my old B&B, plus it is a bit lighter. Did not get arm fatigue due to the wt. I don't know what the max size branch my old trimmer could cut, but this has a larger gap between the teeth, so I know it is designed for a larger branch. When in doubt, go for the larger size. A larger size can still cut smaller branches but a smaller size can not cut those larger branches. A great purchase.

Ive always purchased Black and Decker trimmers in the past. These Toro trimmers are much much better. Great Buy!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ABCD1234 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by abtinatl Absolutely love it!
I got this hedger about a month ago and I have used it to clip my totally overgrown hedges and some too-tall shrubs around my house. I am really happy with my purchase! The hedger cuts through my thick ligustrum and loropetalum branches without any fuss, and does it more easily than I expected. It's really lightweight considering all that it can do. This is my first experience with an electric hedger -- I'm a small woman, too, so it needed to be easy to manipulate, which it is. Very happy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gilster EXCELLENT CHOICE
Having had yards with landscaping for several years, I have purchased a few hedge trimmers over time.
The price spread on this type of product is quite wide.
I have learned my lesson however. Buying the least expensive tends to be a waste of money.
That is why I was pleased to find a TORO model at a price not much more than the cheaper versions.
This is a "workhorse" which is relatively lightweight, and very effective. Solidly built , and easy to operate.
No shaking or vibration.
I am looking forward to several years of ownership !

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dave So far, so good
So far (used 2-3 times), this trimmer has worked well. Cuts through my bushes with no problems, cutting even better than the gas powered trimmer which I replaced. The only drawback is the trigger gets tiresome to hold if you're working for awhile. It would be better if one could hold the trigger on using a normal grip on the handle.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mark Light weight and plenty of power
I was originally thinking about a gas model, but I had owned an electric for years and already had enough dropcord. The difference in weight between this unit and the gas trimmers is significant. I am pleased with the performance of this trimmer. I trimmed for @ 4 hrs and it did not miss a beat.
