DeWalt’s 20V Max Cordless Hedge Trimmer Moves to the Front of the Line

Cordless hedge trimmers have a comparatively long track record of success in the battery-powered market because they’re more efficient than most other tools. Just in the last few years, things have evolved, and that puts the DeWalt 20V Max cordless 22-inch hedge trimmer in something of a unique position.

Here’s a closer look.

DeWalt 20V Max Hedge Trimmer Features Breakdown

Interestingly, DeWalt’s flagship battery-powered hedge trimmers, their 60V line, seem to be on the company’s cut list (no pun intended).

That leaves the DCHT820 as DeWalt’s current top-of-the-line model. It’s a bit of an awkward place to be when your flagship has a brushed motor and a relatively limited capacity compared to its prosumer and Pro competitors.

At the same time, it definitely has its strong points, especially its lightweight design. Indeed, just 9.3 pounds with the battery is quite manageable.

In terms of operation, this trimmer has a 2800 SPM speed and a 3/4-inch cut capacity. Neither of these numbers is a bad thing, however, when compared to other premium-level competition, they suggest that the DCHT820 might be a little tame.
