This Hedge Trimmer does a great job for an unbelievalbe low price. I have a 50 foot long by 4 foot wide Evergreen type hedge in front of my house. This Trimmer made short work of trimming it in record time. It cut through thick branches with no problems.I used to have a Hedge Hog recharable type trimmer that would quit less then half way through and the blades would stick every few feet. No problem with this one. It has paid for itself 3x over in one use, as I would pay a Gardener 150.00 every 6 months to trim the hedge. I especially like the cord retracter and adjustable handle.
Would someone at Sears please explain why you could not ship this trimmer with the handle already attached? I opened the box and the handle is sitting in the location where it would be attached, but I'm the one that has to do it. The design is awful. I ended up chewing up the inside of the handle and the attachments. No amount of force or pressure could get the stupid teeth to align on my supposedly "adjustable" handle. Finally, I got a mallet and slammed it on. At least it's tight, but I sure as heck won't be adjusting it. As for the trimmer itself - it works fine, if you don't commit suicide trying to put the handle on.
Powerful for general trimming around the yard. Light weight.
have used for over three years now, and works like a champ. Solid and makes the job a breeze.
This Trimmer does the job that I expected from a Craftsman product.
I count on Craftsman for ALL my home and yard work needs.
only used a few times. can't complain. works well. I'm sure like any other hedge trimmer, if you are trying to cut very thick hedges, the blades will jam. but I have yet to try this.
Plenty of power...good size cutting blade... Only down side is being tethered to a cord..cut two good lead cords. Price is great!
