Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 79 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Really Good I bought this last week and I've been using it everyday since. I had to cut through some light branches in the backyard and this did the job nicely. Here is a picture of the 'max' width of a tree branch you can cut. Also the battery lasts about 1 to 1.5 hours running it continuously. July 6, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Impressive Power Trimmer exactly as promised. Wish I had before pictures of the shrubs this trimmer easily handled. We were skeptical of just how powerful this trimmer would be and of course just how thick a branch it could handle. Could not be happier! My husband completed trimming and cleanup on 4 very large shrubs in the time it would have taken to complete 1 with our manual pruning and hedging tools. May 27, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amazing buy at this price. Cuts through more than you may expect. Really powerful to be cordless/electric. Excellent construction and function. May 11, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good product Used 2x so far. Charged battery overnight before first use. Used it to prune hedges and 10' tall arbs. Unit worked perfect and and had a very good quality cut. Ran for about 1 hour before battery went dead (longer than I thought it would). Put on charger for about 30 minutes to finish job up. Much lighter than my gas powered Echo trimmer so good for holding up in the air. Had a better cut on smaller bushes than the Echo also. I would definitely recommend product. In the future I'll get a 2nd battery. I got mine on sale for $109 so it was a good deal. I'm a landscaper so I wanted this as a backup trimmer, but found that I'll probably use it first for bushes that don't have real heavy branches (under 3/4"). Came with a cheap plastic cover for blade, but it's still better than nothing! August 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good hedge trimmer The trimmer is able to handle almost all of the bushes I would have usually done with my gas trimmer in a session. It's quiet, and surprisingly light. It doesn't have quite the power of my former gas trimmer, but I'm happy to say goodbye to the noise, heat, exhaust, and fuel mixing. July 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Superb Hedge Trimmer This cordless hedge trimmer works fantastic! It's light weight and it ran for about fifty minutes on a full charge of cutting some serious hedges. And what I cut in that 50 minutes was incredible. It doesn't show on the picture but this trimmer comes with a heavy duty monster blade. It sliced through my hedges like butter, allowing me to cut far more in less time than a standard blade. Why this is only available on line is beyond me??? Come on Home Depot!!! If you need to use it for more continuous time I recommend getting a second battery so you can complete the job without interruption. But before you do, depending on the job at hand you might not need the second battery. Ryobi has a similar one which costs a little more but that thing is extremely heavy (even without the battery) and the weight of the battery just puts it over the edge as far as weight, especially if you're going to be doing a major job. But if you want to build up your biceps get the Ryobi. Another nice feature is the fact that the handle rotates for less stress on the user, vertical, horizontal, it's extremely ergonomic. And it comes with a nice sheath blade protector when storing. It was worth every penny! December 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So happy I chose the Toro hedge trimmer This hedge trimmer is exactly what I wanted. It is lightweight, fast charging (only 2 hours) and trims the bushes really well. Also, there is a button on the back of the battery (red) press it and it will show how much battery life is left. This trimmer far surpasses my old black and decker. It was a little pricey, but that's because of the battery, with some trimmers you have to buy the battery separately and that can be very costly, then this one. Take a chance get it! August 6, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Better then hoped for I cannot say enough good about this trimmer. Easy to use, well balanced, cuts fast, good battery life. I thought it may be heavy with the battery. However, not dragging a cord around makes the trimmer seem lighter. I can trim in about an hour what took about two hours with a corded trimmer. Fast delivery and well packed. As with any trimmer, keep the blade oiled. October 28, 2014
