Hedge Trimmer Reviews

Lawn care almost always involves a good hedge trimmer. Our hedge trimmer reviews concentrate on cut quality, cutting efficiency, features, and more. For battery-powered hedge trimmers, run-time plays an important role. Comparative reviews make for our preferred testing methods as it allows us to compare and contrast multiple models. Hedge trimmers range from gas-powered handheld tools to battery-powered models that are stand-alone or use backpack batteries. These battery-powered models are really starting to infiltrate the market. This is particularly true for jurisdictions with noise ordinances. Battery models can also achieve lower levels of vibration for the user than most gas tools. Landscaping business owners look to our hedge trimmer reviews when comparing battery-powered models to their gas counterparts. We ensure that run-time and durability issues are addressed for a truly fair evaluation. Our trimmer reviews test cutting power and cut capacity as well as features, usability, and more.

Worx 56V Cordless Hedge Trimmer Review WG291

Worx 56V Cordless Hedge Trimmer Review WG291

Having grown up on a larger property, dealing with unruly hedges and landscaping became part of my job. I had sisters, and while they were certainly capable, oftentimes the cutting duties fell to me. Had I access to a Worx 56V cordless hedge trimmer back then, my life would have been much easier. What’s really surprising, […]

New 2016 Makita MM4 4-Stroke Hedge Trimmers

New 2016 Makita MM4 4-Stroke Hedge Trimmers

Makita seems to have cracked the code when it comes to their 4-stroke engines found on the new Makita MM4 4-Stroke Hedge Trimmers. In many cases, (heavily documented in the motocross world) 4-stroke engines can’t produce near the amount of horsepower that two-stroke does because of the engine cycle. At 1.1 horsepower, Makita’s MM4 engine […]

The DeWalt 40V Max Hedge Trimmer rounds out my trifecta of the DeWalt OPE line, so at this point I know what to expect, and this trimmer is no exception. Pulling the black and gold out the box I’m greeted with the look and feel of quality and a form that follows function. Perhaps not […]

Husqvarna 36V Hedge Trimmer 536LiHD60X

Husqvarna 36V Hedge Trimmer Review (536LiHD60X)

I remember trimming hedges at my Mom’s house. While I love my Mama, there was definitely some mental preparation that had to be done ahead of Koehler Family Work Day. Dragging the extension cords all around the house and yard where it seemed like every possible foot of perimeter had something to trimmed was not […]
