CRAFTSMAN V20* Cordless 2-in-1 Hedge Trimmer and Grass Shear


Take Care of Precision Trimming With the CRAFTSMAN V20* 2-in-1 Hedge Trimmer and Grass Shear

Cordless hedge trimmers are convenient and can save a lot of time, but they lack some finesse when it comes to finely detailing your landscape. The CRAFTSMAN V20* Cordless 2-in-1 Hedge Trimmer and Grass Shear (CMCSS800) steps in when precision is your number one priority. We’re teaming up with CRAFTSMAN to tell you more about it.

Precision Cutting with the CRAFTSMAN V20* Cordless 2-in-1 Hedge Trimmer and Grass Shear

Your standard hedge trimmer is capable of getting your hedges back into shape. The CRAFTSMAN V20* Cordless 2-in-1 Hedge Trimmer and Grass Shears make detailing a breeze.

The 8-inch Hedge Trimmer blade works great for detailing your smaller shrubbery where you don’t need the reach of a long hedge trimmer blade. It can certainly help you keep that boxwood border looking pristine.

Switching to the 4-inch grass shear, the shorter blade lets you trim fescues and clean up garden beds giving your lawn area a nice finish.

No matter which blade you’re using, it’s about finesse over sheer power and the max capacity is 5/16-inch.

Switching Blades on the CRAFTSMAN CMCSS800

Switching blades on the CRAFTSMAN CMCSS800 V20* Cordless 2-in-1 Hedge Trimmer and Grass Shear is a simple, tool-free process. After removing the battery, flip the trimmer over, push the gray button forward, and lift the cover from the back. Once you have it off, align the pins with the blade you want to install and set the cover back in place. Re-insert the battery, and you’re ready to trim!

There is some grease for lubrication under the cover, so keep a shop towel nearby in case you need to wipe off your fingers.

Compact Grass Shear and Hedge Trimmer Sheds Size and Weight

A big part of what helps you perform accurate trimming is the shorter length. The tool measures only 21-3/8 inches long with the hedge trimmer and 15-1/8 inches with the grass shear.

In addition to its short length and maneuverability, another great benefit of this design involves just how lightweight the tool is. With the 1.5Ah battery included in the kit loaded, the hedge trimmer weighs 3.4 pounds. Configured as a cordless grass shear, it drops to just 3.0 pounds.

You can find this hybrid grass shear/trimmer at Lowe’s for $79.96. The kit includes everything you need to get started: the tool, grass shear blade, hedge trimmer blade, 1.5Ah V20* battery, and charger. The CRAFTSMAN CMCSS800 works with all CRAFTSMAN V20* batteries.
