I finally had to replace my Black & Decker hedge trimmer as the motor burned out, so I decided to try something else. This works great as I like the way you attach the cord to keep it out of the way and locks it to prevent it from becoming unplugged accidentally. For safety, it also has a button on top that you must press in conjunction with the trigger to turn it on so it does not turn on accidentally. Seems to be more powerful than my last hedger as it rips through the bushes with ease and I love the length of the 22" blade rail as it reaches farther than my old 16" blade rail so I don't have to stretch as far anymore. Also seems to be lighter in weight, too. Very happy with this hedger!

Greenworks 4-Amp Review
For the last three weeks I have used the trimmer around the house to cut back growing lilac, forsythia and juniper bushes. The largest diameter branch trimmed was approximately 1/2 inch and green .The tool was new out of the box and looked and operated similar to previous trimmers I have owned. The trimmer cuts through shrubbery so effortlessly that I have to make a point of concentrating on safety so I do not accidently cut the cord or injure myself. However, I do find the trimmer a bit noisy and wear ear protectors when using.

The first one arrived and did not work. I reached out to amazon and they sent a new one fast! The new one worked great and I am happy. Every product had a certain degree of failure. This company handled my issue quickly

Excellent addition to my GreenWorks collection
Definitely worth every penny. I was surprised by how light, yet well built this hedge trimmer is, and it was able to easily cut through thick and thin branches. It is also well balanced so it is very easy to handle.

Great for a smaller yard!
Very dependable and reliable unit to trim hedges in my small yard. There is quite a bit of vibration, but this is to be expected. Highly recommend!

Shredding my blackberry briar.
Worth it's weight in gold!!! I was advised that this would probably not work for my blackberry briar because of how it grows and the thickness of the undergrowth, however it is cutting thru it like a champ. I use loppers anytime I come across a branch 1" or thicker. I have no other purpose for this hedge trimmer other than a nasty blackberry hedge 10' tall and 15' wide and several dozen feet long :-( I figured for less than $40 it was worth a try since it's in an area where I can't get large equipment to tear it out. Not sure if the motor will make thru the whole project, but I'll gladly buy a replacement if it doesn't. I have chopped about 20 x 15 feet in less than an hour!!!

Nice product for the price
I have been happy with the use of this product thus far for trimming my bougainvillea bush, but it only does the smaller branches. Nice product for the price.

Better than a gas model
This works almost as well as a gas powered trimmer. I have two other electric trimmers and they don’t come anywhere as near as powerful as this one. This also in 2 inches longer and that helps when on ladder trimming bushes. Has worked flawlessly and looking forward to next summer

Love this trimmer
I just used this for the first time trimming my 4 yr old pampas grass bushes. For anyone who has grown these, you know it can be a job. My last trimmer just chewed the bush but this one sliced right through even with the bush being wet from all this rain. Very happy with the weight and how it handled since I am a 64 yr old female. I know this will make my summer trimming for my smaller bushes a breeze. well worth the $.

Great price for a good trimmer
Plenty of power to keep my bushes trimmed. Once the branches got a bit too thick it struggled, but that was just me testing it's limits. For all the ones I need to actually trim, it cranked through them. Great feel and easy to navigate and use.
