I bought this with a gift card I received for Christmas one year. I had been using manual shearing scissors on the hedges out front and figured this power tool would be easier.
This is for a smaller uses and would not work well on large jobs. It is extremely to use and has a safety so that if you take your finger off the safety switch it will shut off automatically.
It is lightweight, but gets the job done. I have tried using this power tool on some thick branches and it ends up getting caught. It is not hard to fix, just manuver the branch out from between teeth.
It has a rechargable battery and is cordless. This machine uses 6" Precision blades for easy cutting.
There is an optional extension handle that can be purchased if needed.
