Summary: Great weight and balance. I have found the battery pack does not last for more than about 20-25 minutes which is disappointing. It seems to lose its charge when left on the hedgecutter over night.
Summary: Good lightweight hedge trimmer. Pity the batteries don't last that long and are very expensive to replace, in fact I bought a new hedge trimmer for less than the price to replace 2 batteries for my 2 year old one.
Summary: The light weight and good ergonomic design make this trimmer a good choice for general purpose use. Another advantage of the light weight is allow the manoeuvrability that is required to profile or add a decorative touch to hedge trimming.
Summary: Update June 2012: Almost three years after buying, the hedgecutter just won't start at all, using either battery, and I have had to purchase a new one. This is disappointing as it was such a good tool and I expected longer use out of it.
