For the price and quality, you could purchase two or three of these Craftsman branded hedge trimmers compared to one the other guys. Great product and craftsmanship by Sears and the Craftsman brand.
This product broke after its 2nd use. I thought Sears stood behind their Craftsman name and products. It has a 30 day return apparently but I didn't try it within 30 days. Now they won't exchange or let me return it. Sears isn't what it used to be.
It does the job! Used it for first time today on medium hedges and cut thru them great. Hope it lasts for a long time.
Very good tool for thinner branches. Only con would be that it struggles a lot with thicker branches above two inches in thickness. Again though, it definitely gets the job done on most all other thinner branches and twigs
I am very happy with this product as it is super easy to use, affordable, and makes light work of pruning and trimming.
