    Q:What is the cutting capacity in diameter of this? How thick of a branch? In your specs it says 18", I think that is a typo

    Answer This Question

    A:  Thank you for your question on the XNU05SM1 hedge trimmer. Please do not attempt to cut branches thicker than 10 mm (3/8"") in diameter with the tool. Cut branches to 10 cm (4"") lower than the cutting height using branch cutters before using the tool. Please refer to your instructions manual if you have any other questions.

            Delivered fast. Easy set up. Convenient to reach high level but the power is not strong

            The trimmer lacks power. You buy a telescoping pole trimmer to handle larger bushes. This is only good for very small vegetation.

            So much lighter than a corded model. Tested it out immediately after purchase and was definitely pleased with it's performance.
