I bought this to replace my 19 year old Craftsman trimmer. I used it once today to test it out and I'm very happy with it. Before I bought it, I really couldn't figure out what the rotating handle was or why I'd want one. But after I used it, I can say that the rotating handle really is a cool feature, and helps you you cut vertically. It runs nice and smooth, and I'm very pleased with it.
But it doesn't have the one feature it claimed to have online, that I drove 80 miles round trip to get. After paying for it online it and finding that it wouldn't be delivered for two weeks (long after it was needed) I decided to drive the 40 mile trip to the nearest store that had it in stock. When I took it out of the store I decided to check and make sure it had the one particular feature that my wife said she needed, (the Lock On feature). This feature was not on the unit so I returned it immediately!
I didn’t realize how bad my old Black & Decker hedge trimmer‘s were —- now it takes me about half the time to do my hedges -quicker easier and a better job. More level.
Does exactly what it’s supposed to with no complaints.
We have a whole row of lavender and this trims them awesome, minutes instead of days
This trimmer is sharp. Cuts great at all angles and has a small level built in which I was pleasantly surprized by. Very happy with it.
