DEWALT DCG413B 20V MAX Brushless Cut Off Tool/Grinder (Tool Only)

My Rating 8/10

For a battery operated tool this Dewalt 20v grinder has plenty of power comparable to a corded model. I like the two safety features, the anti-kickback and the brakes but I wish they kick in faster instead of taking 1.5 seconds to full stop. This one needs a stronger battery a 5 or 6 AH battery will give you all the power you need. If you use a 2 AH battery it wont last long might feel under powered.

Overall Solid built, Quick stop, Cuts and Grinds as it’s built for. Just get some high amp batteries for longer use.

Bosch 18V EC Brushless Connected-Ready 4.5 In. Angle Grinder with Paddle Switch (Bare Tool) GWS18V-45PCN

MyRating 8/10

If you have invested in the Bosch 18V platform this bosch 18v cordless grinder would be a great addition to your toolbox. It will run a long time with the 6.3 amp hour batteries as you will have to buy a battery and charger anyway . I have seen a few complaints about fitting the protection guard or that it only fits in one position. Overall its a powerful grinder and the bosch blue line of tools already have their reputation for quality products.

Milwaukee 2783-20 M18 Fuel 4-1/2″ / 5″ Braking Grinder – Bare

My Rating 9/10

The milwaukee m18 cordless grinder is a very well built product, threaded arbor makes it easy to connect threaded disks. Swapping of disks requires no tools, the tightening nut has a flip up handle that can be loosened and tightened by hand. Comes with a cutting guard, grinding guard, and two dust shields for intake vents. If you’re doing a lot of work make sure you have extra batteries or one on the charger. The braking function works great, stops the disk significantly faster than a non braking. So you can place it down sooner and not worry about it taking off or damaging your work surface. Very nimble and not too heavy with no cord makes this grinder tough to beat. Overall, a tool I would recommend to anybody looking for a small, medium- powered angle grinder. 

Makita XAG04Z 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless 4-1/2” / 5″ Cut-Off/Angle Grinder

My Rating 10/10

In the makita cordless angle grinder review it comes out as one of the best in its class. This is an excellent grinder , it has almost as much power in the way it runs as a corded grinder. It is fast to charge and its not much heavier than corded models.

Has great power to do most grinding jobs around the house and in a small shop or garage even with its portable size. The battery life is better than what you would expect for a cordless tool, even on a 3.0 Ah battery. Feels quite solid in the hand when in use and its easy to maneuver. All in all this is a good dependable tool as you would expect from Makita.  

WORX WG255.1 20V PowerShare 20″ Cordless Electric Hedge Trimmer

My Rating 8/10

The worx cordless hedge trimmers are easy to handle light weight but powerful enough for all the smaller jobs around the yard the you will love this. Your not gonna cut trees down with this, but works fine on smaller hedges up to a half inch thick.

Battery just takes a little to long to charge so a second one would be nice if you have a bit of work to do. The sheath it comes looks really cheap. Otherwise I would recommend it. The battery lasts for a good 30 minutes. It works great for the smaller bushes, but not made for the bigger limbs. For the price its a good hedge trimmer for small to medium jobs.

OREGON CORDLESS 40 Volt MAX HT250 Hedge Trimmer

My Rating 9/10

The oregon battery hedge trimmer is deceptively powerful given how quiet it is.  much lighter than a gas hedge trimmer yet it was extremely sharp and smooth. The weight is well balanced and comfortable to operate. The trigger is pressure sensitive to help conserve battery life but still operates at full power. Oregon says that the charge with this particular battery should last an hour but that the amount of work that can be accomplished was worth two hours with a competing hedge trimmer. This particular trimmer can handle branches up to 3/4 inch diameter and at 40 volts has plenty power too.

Most buyers are very happy with this hedge cutter and has a score of 4.1 out of 5 stars on Amazon

EGO Power+ HT2400 24-Inch 56-Volt Lithium-ion Cordless Hedge Trimmer –

My Rating 9/10

The ego power hedge trimmer makes trimming bushes and hedges a breeze.  At 56 volts it had plenty of power and the razor sharp edges making the job easy. Its a little heavy but that is more than made up for by how easy it is to work . The ego power has 4.8 out of 5 stars on Amazon with lots of glowing reviews. If you want a powerful reliable tool to get the job done this is the one to go for you wont regret it.

Poulan Pro PPB40HT, 24 in. 40-Volt Cordless Hedge Trimmer

My Rating 7/10

The poulan pro cordless hedge trimmer seems to be very well made and heavy duty at a reasonable price. It is best suited for medium work and will cut branches up to a half inch thick. Most seem very happy with the poulan pro hedge cutter saying that it has exceeded their expectations . The only problem was the few people that did have problems were not happy with the customer service they received. They felt the the warranty that was offered was not covered when the trimmer stopped working which is why this couldn’t get a higher rating .

Makita XHU02Z 18V LXT Lithium-Ion Cordless 22″ Hedge Trimmer

My Rating 8/10

The makita cordless hedge trimmers are well balanced, easy to operate and manipulate, and cut cleanly and efficiently, with sufficient power and cutting ability for applications around most yards. It will get a lot done with a single 3-ah battery with power to spare and you can also get a spare 5ah battery if you want. Although well-built, it is relatively light that the 18v version would enough for most yard or garden work unless you want to get the 36v model. Works well but doesn’t go crazy fast. It is really only for small to medium jobs like cutting twigs and its good for shaping. If you’re looking to really take out branches in your hedges then perhaps the 36v would be better. But for general maintenace it works well. Plus it’s not that heavy at all.

DEWALT DCHT820P1 Hedge Trimmer

My Rating 8/10

The dewalt cordless trimmers live up to all the 5 star reviews and are perfect for light to medium work. The trimmer and battery are tip notch. The sharp blades slice through 1/2″ and less limbs with ease. . The blades are razor sharp and it’s long enough to reach some harder-to-get areas. It has a run time of over 40 minutes without a decrease in the battery power.

The 20v is plenty powerful enough. Build quality is what you would expect from DEWALT.  The fit and finish of the tool is typically DeWalt…perfect. If you want MAX trimming, then get the Dewalt 20 volt MAX trimmer and never be sorry to do the gardening again!
