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
