    Easy to use and gets the job done...
    I have always trimmed our shrubs, etc., with hand clippers because I never thought spending money on hedge trimmers would be worth it. However, I have a bad shoulder condition now which makes it very painful for me to pull weeds, much less try to trim the shrubs. One Saturday, my husband surprised me by driving in with the HT20 B&D electric trimmers (while I was chopping at a bush). I hooked up those trimmers and they were so easy to use and made the job so quick! I couldn't believe that I had been doing by hand what I could have been doing so easily for years with a B&D electric trimmer! I especially like this model because it is light enough that it does not hurt my shoulder, but it does a heavy-duty job. It cuts through fairly thick branches and it stays super-sharp. I also like the way the power cord comes out the back and hooks into an extention cord so I don't have to worry about cutting the cord(s) in half. This is a great product that I'd recommend to everyone!

    Easy to use, lightweight.


    I wish it came with a shoulder strap.

    Easy to use! Gets the job done fast!
    Being the family handy person just got easier for me after I purchased the 20 inch hedge trimmer. I was dreading trimming the hedges manually because our hedge trimmer was loaned out and never returned when I decided to look into buying a replacement. I went to Lowe's where I knew I'd be able to pick up and touch a sample so I could judge which would be best for me. This one is fairly lightweight and I liked the full front wrap around handle which made it feel comfortable to hold. I went out today and in no time my bushes were trimmed and my job was done. Very little vibration compared to our old one. This hedge trimmer is a winner in my book!

    Full wrap around handle, place to secure extension cord, overall ease of use, little to no vibration


    I liked everything about this product although it would be nice if it could clean up the cut branches for me but other than that I had no bad issues with it.

    Awesome right out of the box!
    I have used craftsman (back in 70"s trimmer) and rockwell but they are so old they made the job seem long! When I first to this out of the box I was impressed with the design. I also like the feel of the rubber grip and wait till I first used it! WOW!! I got my hedges done before breakfast was served without breaking a sweat because it is dual bladed like most but also is sooo smooth. It did not take much energy and cut like butter and I have hedges that are thick so the 3/4" inch cutting ability helps and reduces stress on the trimmer and that makes easier work for me. Thank you B&D

    rubber grip,sefety switch, smooth motor, great balance, hardened steel blades, blade support bar, cord retainer is nice too (most power tools have them now)

    Very good!
    I purchased this in May and trimmed my bushes. It does a great job and cuts through very thick stuff. So far it looks like a quality product and works great!

    Quality Build


    The cord can get in the way, but it's not cordless!
