During the spring and summer months I do a lot of yard work. My yard work consist of many things including trimming my hedge's and bushes. I love the fact this particual hedge trimmer is fairly light in weight yet very durable. It's a major plus that this hedge trimmer is cordless. I am totally free to walk around and do my yard work with having to worry about tripping over cords or being limited to yard work. Overall this is a great hedge trimmer that gets the job done time after time. My yard looks beautiful thanks to this hedge trimmer.
