    Carefully consider your use and features vs cost : Cord versus Battery
    Corded vs cordless is a trade-off between the advantages of each: (cord)120VAC -- Model -- 18VDC (battery) ~60/sec -- Cutting -- ~30% slower (worse w/ time) lighter but cord might limit reach/range -- Weight -- 20% heavier weight might limit arm reach cord handling & cord reach -- Movement -- weight might limit handling slightly lower price + cord -- Cost -- higher price + replacement batteries(~2-3yr life?) plug & go -- Maintenance -- charging required before use ;store charger & battery indoors possible to cut cord -- reliability -- battery boggs during normal use, requiring immediate re-charge or spare battery($) swap

    Call me a Luddite, but since I already have a $40 mower cord to reach everywhere, the 120VAC model wins for cost, power, simplicity, weight, reliability, & convenience. (unless I volunteer at the neighborhood garden)


    The comparison tool hides prices. Poor tech support for battery care info. Battery & charger system are not well documented.

    Efficient but POOR stamina
    After 10-12 charges the battery life took a dive. I'm lucky to get 16-17 mins out of the battery. I have faithfully charged the battery fully but it still dies way too fast. I absolutely do not recommend this product based on poor battery life. NOTE: I had a similar experience with the B&D hedge hog 14.4v.

    cordless, lightweight


    takes a long time to fully charge, BATTERY LIFE...BATTERY LIFE...BATTERY LIFE

    Great Tool
    Great gift for fathers day. I like working in the yard. And this tool makes it easy. Sharp blade and lightweight. Look forward to buying the weed trimmer next 18volt. I have been buying Black and Decker for the past 25 years. Great for the homeowner last long for the money and reliable.

    Lightweight , cordless


    long time to charge battery. 9 hours with standard charger.

    hedge trimmer
    i just got it and it is great. i got a gas trimmer and i was trimming some hedges and they were tall and my arms was getting tired. so i used the home owners corded one and it was light . but i did not like the cord so i decided to get a cordless one and i love it . only thing i am leary about is the battery life.

    light weight easy to cut with holds good charge lasted almost 2 hrs


    possible battery life

    It works great and is so easy to use. Also, it is lightweight so you can use it until the battery runs out without getting a sore back or arms
