Bob, Sidmouth

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Faster than using my small hedge trimmer.
More convenient than needing an electric lead or petrol.
The blade angle can be adjusted to reach over and behind the hedge.
Bad points:
Not as long as it said in the advert.
Quite heavy, partly due to the battery.

Confirmed purchaser

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Very safe to use as blades are well out of reach of body. ( First time I've used this kind of product as the electric one scared me and several times my husband has cut through the cable)
Easy reach of taller shrubs - no ladders etc needed unless very overgrown
Much quicker than using hand shears, and it cuts much thicker branches.
Bad points:
Rather cumbersome - very long handle for a woman to use, and heavy, the weight of the battery is at the bottom of the handle so a little bit out of balance.
Need to make sure that the battery is charged before use, and not sure how long a full charge takes as there is no light to advise when done! Perhaps it could have been supplied with a spare battery to ensure a longer working period ie. more than 40 minutes or so.

Confirmed purchaser

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use, really good price from a certain large foodstore. Battery life is fine, cant hold it up for longer than the battery lasts anyway. Ideal for just doing the tops of bushes without stepladders - just use a mains or petrol powered handheld for larger vertical areas.
Bad points:
None really.
