    Frustrating blade lock ups
    Product was as described .Sounds like just the machine I needed

    Good battery life when new , hedge trimmer works well on very light hedging .


    The blade system locked up on mine when cutting 5/16" branches .No branches were stuck in the blade itself but the blade was locked up internally ,when trying to free it the motor burnt out.I took it back and was given a new one .The same thing happened again with the second hedge trimmer. I dont think it would be possible to cut 3/4"as suggested in the sales pitch unless it was very very soft .I took the second one back for a refund .Really disappointed in this trimmer ( would be good if the gearbox was stronger )I am a mechanic and did have a look inside the trimmer before I took it back the second time .Nothing was broken but the blades seem to twist when put under load and the eccentric that drives them locks solid .It can be freed up by dismantling the trimmer and appears to do no damage inside .As soon as it was put back to work it did the same thing.

    great product so far
    M87943527 36 volt 24 in dual cordless hedge trimmer. I've had it a couple of weeks and have used it a total of 6 hours. It cuts great, is very balanced, seems extremely well made and durable and the battery holds a charge for at least 2-4 hours. Very satisfied and would recommend highly.

    apparent quality of construction, battery hold charge for a longer time than I expected, balanced, not heavy.


    nothing negative to say

    Love it so far!
    We used to have a gas powered hedge trimmers. I could only do three bushes before my arms were exhausted. I trimmed approximately 20 hedges at once with these. It was fast, easy, light weight, and well.....wonderful!



    No cons so far

    I was very hesitated to buy a battery powered trimmer; however, I am pleasently surprised at the job it did. I trimmed approximately 100 ft. of overgrown bushes and still had half a charge left. It was really nice not having to use gas! Good choice!

    Light weight, easy to use, long lasting battery with no memory, and powerful enough to perform the average homeowner trimming


    After only using it once I have no complaints!

    First time out, this trimmer works great. Used it to trim the overgrown lilac hedge, which was also intermixed with some very tall weeds. Seems just as powerful as the 2455 corded trimmer so far, and way better than the Ryobi 18V trimmer, even using the lithium battery upgrade.

    Great power, and no cord to mess with (and I've sliced thru more than one in my time)! Battery charges fast, too. I may have to sell my corded trimmers! You also don't have to hold down the safety lock with your thumb while pressing the power trigger with your other fingers, like my older trimmer.


    Would be cool if it had a rotating handle like the 2455, but this is still a great trimmer as it is.

    Works well but built cheaply
    Great initially until one month old when the clear brush/hand guard broke. Many calls to customer support only to find the part I needed was continually on back-order with no anticipated time of arrival. Fooled around with them for two months involving 5 phone calls and still no promise of the part. Got fed up with them and returned the product.

    Light, quiet easy to use.


    MADE IN CHINA!!! MADE IN CHINA!! MADE IN CHINA!! As with 99% of all the products I buy that are made in China they look good on the outside but are made of cheap inferior materials and something always happens that makes the product fail. In short, good looking junk. I can't see how good American companies think this helps their bottom line. Unsatisfied customers don't return.
