Senior-friendly. I'm in my 70s and for a while worried that it's weight and function would pose an arm-and-back straining challenge versus a 7-foot ficus. Obviously because of its balance, sharpness, length, and motor power, and even while perched on a tall ladder, I was able to reduce that unsightly growth to a groomed mushroom- shaped tree. More importantly, none of the usual post-work muscle pain and body discomfort. Meanwhile, the rotating handle, though a good feature, did not really contribute much for what I needed to use it for. It is nevertheless a worthwhile investment that I expect to grow with the years.
First time using it on Texas Sage. Hit a 5/8 inch branch and moving blade bent into an arch between 2 bolts on the nonmoving part of the blade. What garbage.
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.
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.
Craftsman has a good reputation. This trimmer is a good product at a really good price!
