" ...  Works OK for an electric hedge trimmer.  ...  "

" ...  RECEIVED 2 x 40v GeenWorks Hedge Trimmers.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I use it to cut my hedge - 100ft by 8 ft - does a great job and much better than my previous electric trimmer or gas powered trimmer. ... The long, balanced handle and blade enable a nice straight line to be cut across the hedge or bushes making for a neat job.  ...  "

comment
" ...  I just did about an hours worth of trimming and it worked great with the battery still having 3/4 of a charge left.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I would recommend buying these as had made a hard job much easier and the battery can be used in other GreenWorks products. ... For a really big job you might want to order another battery to swap out and always have a charged one ready to continue without stopping. ... Very strong running with 40 v 2 ah battery ... Battery easy to remove and install/charge ... Constant power throughout the charge and does not slow down when battery drains to recharge  ...  "

" ...  I would have given it 5 stars if not for the plastic construction of the housing as seems kind of weak but holding up well. ... The outside case is plastic with a metal aluminum center sliding extension secured by a clamp, I could imagine the case breaking at the clamp if used in extreme conditions or extended out all the time. ... The head is secured by a clamp too which if not tight will move and could fall off or loose connection. ... In my opinion the clamp areas could be a break point where a stress break could occur.  ...  "
comment
" ...  After about three years of hard use cutting thick vines (often thicker than GreenWorks recommends), the handle broke due to vibration and being dropped a few times.  ...  "

" ...  Sadly the main plastic sheathing that holds the shaft had cracked.  ...  "

comment
" ...  Metal quality is absolute junk!  ...  "
comment
" ...  The shaft is really weak and won’t endure for the long haul. ... The clamps that keep the shaft length are lousy.  ...  "
comment
" ...  This worked well for a while but the head snapped off after only half a dozen uses. ... High stress points are made of plastic which is too weak.  ...  "

comment
" ...  This hedger means I don't have to risk falling off a ladder when trying to get the tops.  ...  "
comment
" ...  It would still be balanced when extended but the front trigger mechanism doesn't slide forward so the head moves farther away from your hands making it more difficult to control while holding down the front trigger - you must hold down the front and rear trigger to operate.  ...  "

" ...  I was getting tired of holding up / starting and stopping our gas trimmers while on a ladder to reach the top of the hedge and sides. ... The outside case is plastic with a metal aluminum center sliding extension secured by a clamp, I could imagine the case breaking at the clamp if used in extreme conditions or extended out all the time. ... The head is secured by a clamp too which if not tight will move and could fall off or loose connection. ...
