Cordless Hedge Trimmer
on May 22, 2011
Works well, adequate battery life.
Definitely great for hard to reach places but can be awkward when trying to cut up close.
It would have been better if they designed it so you could take the extension pole out and hook up the trigger mechanism directly to the blade so it could either be a pole trimmer or a traditional trimmer.
The specs on this are a bit misleading.
It is an 18", not 22"
Also Black & Decker hypes up the reach a little bit, "up to" 10 foot reach includes however long your arms are and how far you can stretch, the unit itself is only around 6-6.5 feet long.
Overall I would recommend the product for trimming hard to reach hedges but you may also want to get the non-pole model as well for up close work.
