Got this to use on hedge and another assorted plants in the garden.
Very pleased with it. First impression is that it's nice and lightweight - which is obviously very important for long sections of hedge, especially anything that is quite high up, as you can be holding it above your hedge for a long period of time. So it scores well on that front.
The trimming blade seems a good size - I feel if it was longer it would be unwieldy, but shorter would be too short, so happy with the size.
The mechanism seems powerful enough too - made very short work of a leylandii in our back garden, but also of some heavier duty bushes that were growing against a wall - so it's capable of more than just basic hedges.
In summary, highly recommended.
