Excellent hedge trimmer. Decided to buy the 30 inch model. What a difference. I can trim all my bushes faster and more even. It has a lot of power for having only one 18v battery. Very well made. Happy with performance. Did all my evergreens around my house.

I had several concerns when buying this. The power, battery life and weight (arthritic shoulders). I have to admit it passed all three with flying colors. I purchased the Makita trimmer without batteries because I already had several Makita hand tools which use the same battery. I paid over $400 last year for someone to trim my hedges. By buying the trimmer, I figured I could save some money and the trimmer would pay for itself many times over. The trimmer cut through all but the largest (maybe 3/4 in) branches. It cut larger branches than I had expected. I typically use it for about 1 1/2 hours at the time and the batteries still showe 4 bars (max) and no signs of slowing down. I got the 30 in bar because I have some wide hedges and reaching out too far puts a strain on my shoulders. When I saw and opened the box, it seemed huge, but when using it, it was easy to handle and not too heavy. I am glad I got the 30 in. The rotating handle makes it easier when trimming the sides. The trimmer exceeded my expectations in all areas.

This is a great battery tool. Capable of doing the work on any gas powered equipment. Battery run time is great. The different positions on the handle makes different angles more comfortable
