This Cordless Hedge Trimmer ‘Really Goes The Distance’

Back in the day, hedge trimmers were powered by cords. That created some problems, since the hedge trimmer would have very sharp blades that could easily cut through the cord if one was not careful. Now, thankfully, there are cordless hedge trimmers. Such as this one. It uses a rechargeable 40V lithium battery that allows it to trim up to 6,000 square feet in one charge. No one Black & Decker says “this hedge trimmer really goes the distance.”

Today only, this hedge trimmer is $45 off.

The biggest draw about this hedge trimmer is the POWERCUT feature, which “allows you to cut through a jam with the push of a button.” Note, this hedge trimmer typically goes for $150. And it is worth every penny.

Check out this review from J.J. Larsen, titled “Sometimes you get what you pay for – this is one of those times“:

I’ve been on the hunt for a while for a hedger that had the cutting power to stand up to high density bushes and branches, not just for shaping and maintaining but also cutting down the exceptionally thick stuff as necessary. Having it be cordless was a high priority, since I usually spent 20% of my time keeping the cord away from the cutters or avoiding tangles in where I worked. After looking through what was available and the usual suspects of Amazon sales, I started to wonder if a truly effective & cost-effective cordless hedge trimmer didn’t exist.

This is the answer to all of that. The POWERCUT mode is astoundingly tough. The battery life is seemingly unending no matter what I throw at this. The battery recharges faster than I thought possible.

I had a corded Black & Decker hedge trimmer, and other Black & Decker appliances, but compared to those this is in a whole different class. My other products are great, bordering on excellent, and so the price of this had me leery – could it be worth it? Should I look into the high-end ones from brands like DeWalt, Makita, or WORX? I took a chance based on the few reviews I could find for this model, and it paid off.

My routine has become

1.) Cut through everything that stands in my way.
2.) In the event of a jam-up, check to make sure I’m not stuck on a fence or something non-organic.
3.) Activate POWERCUT and make quick work of whatever is there.
4.) Release POWERCUT and resume (1).

Also, you should know that this is part of Black & Decker’s interchangeable battery line. So if you have other B & D power tools, you can use the same battery for all of them.
