I've read reviews from people saying it's heavy. All of these types of tools are heavy. At one end you have a battery about the size of a laptop battery. At the other end is the metal of the cutters and the motor. And fully extended, all these products will feel 'top heavy'.
It's really easy to use. Unlike in a video I saw where you have to squeeze one thing, then the button at the top followed by the trigger, with this you don't. One top slider to click, and then the trigger. But you can then let go of the slider. So you are "controlling" the device with one hand, and the other is free to support it.
I find the means to extend and contract pretty easy. Smooth in fact.
The head can be moved fairly easily with big buttons, and it can be moved to some significantly free-to-use positions. ie. not just 45 degrees etc. Virtually limitless.
It is delivered in a box box, and you just slide it together. It comes apart with a big plastic bolt and just unhook it. So good to store in smallish places. Corner of a small shed etc.
My only negative is that the cutter doesn't feel to be "really gunning" it, like my electric Flymo hedge cutter does. However, it's done all the work of my goat willow. I needed to take a few breaks, because it does ache the supporting arm quite a bit. But you can reach out, move the cutter and I have a very nice result. And now I can do it all without needing to go next door. They can do their own side! Mine, and the top look just right. And being cordless, I can trim bits at height (without the ladder) without having to get out the extension.
I saw some for £69, but didn't come with Amazon's support. And others for well over £100. So I feel this price is good. Would cost me £65 to have my tree cut professionally (had it done last year), so doing it myself will pay for itself inside a year (as it grows about a foot in a week on many top branches).
Reason for four stars and not five - I wish it would cut thru the branches with a bit more "umph". Maybe that's down tot he Volts. I don't know. But it's done the job!
Update 10 Oct 17: Now three months using this machine, I made the right decision in buying it and feel very happy after making the last cut of the year today. I've a monster privet hedge here which stands at around 10 feet high and in length, possibly around 100 feet. The cutter coped admirably, the hedge looks great BUT I feel sure only because I've been using it to trim every 4 weeks or so. As I mentioned in my initial review, it will never be able to cope with the first cut of the year. I'm OK with that though because after that is done by an external contractor in the spring of 2018, I will continue trimming monthly. The battery still takes around 3 or 4 hours to charge which allows me to use the machine for about one hour.
Not so great hedge cutter. We get about 40 mins out of it fully extended cutting a large amount of hedge, so we have to do the hedge in sections, but this handles it pretty well. We find if you oil the blade sometimes it really helps.
