Overall score includes:
We test by cutting horizontally (levelling the top of a hedge) and vertically (trimming the sides of the hedge).
Trimming performance scores are based on how quickly and easily the blade cuts through the hedge and the sharpness of the final cut. Penalties apply for jagged edges and when we notice the trimmer struggling with thicker branches.

Product use: 1 month or less
* Single battery (4.0Ah) lasts very well and gets back up to half-charge after 20 minutes on charger
* We have a wide variety of hedges - Buxus, Camellia, Griselinia, Berberis and more - and it cuts them all very effectively
* Rotating handle is great
* Definitely needs a decent-sized battery - the 4.0Ah lasts roughly 60-90 minutes depending on the hedge type.
* Once taken off, the plastic blade guard won't go back on again
Yes, I recommend this product.

Ceased to work after of 13 months of light garden use. It had two batteries and needed them because the charge did not last long
No, this product has too many drawbacks.
