Would appreciate recent info on a cordless hedge trimmer in the $100.00 range. I understand the B&D has changed their battery within the past 2 Yrs. Also other makes and personal experience. Thanks Anonymous Reply February 16, 2012 at 2:30 pm (Edit) The question I have is how many hedges are on your property? B&D makes a good cordless trimmer for your basic homeowners’ needs. But if it were up to me I would buy a Stihl gas trimmer, best quality and reliability Mr Average Joe Reply February 7, 2012 at 2:01 am (Edit) What is the best cordless electric trimmer and weed eater?

WORX GT WG151.1 18-Volt Cordless Electric Lithium-Ion String Trimmer/Edger WIth One Battery I like the flexibliity of the unit: the handle articulates, the aluminum shaft telescopes to adjust for user height, and the cutter head angle adjusts to insure comfortable hortizontal trimming. Definitely, a well-designed unit from an ergonometric perspective. In the trimmer mode, the cutter guide/guard provides close, precise trimming without accidentally damaging plants or flowers, something hard to achieve with my old corded Toro. A few quick snaps and adjustments and the unit converts into a sidewalk or driveway edger. A caveat here: the unit trims nicely as an edger, but it’s not definitely not powered to trench cut with the trimmer cord. When I tried to get the machine to cut into the dirt next to the sidewalk, it balked and the trimmer string would not advance properly. If used just to edge the grass with a clean vertical cut, the unit performed nicely. Power-wise, the GT’s lithium ion battery provides sufficient power to handle my 1/3 acre routine trimming on one full charge. The user manual indicated a 30 minute recharge cycle for a full recharge, but my recharges have been about 40-45 minutes–still a very quick recharge time compared to other battery-powered models. I pushed the unit by tackling some overgrown grass and weeds in the adjacent vacant lot and it cut them nicely, but they obviously strained the unit to the limits of its power capacity. It can handle that type of work, but if you have lots of it, you’re better off with another machine with more power.

I’ve looked at lots of battery powered ones online at good prices but thereviews usually say that it’s not very powerful or battery doesn’t last long enough. The problem with gas is none of the ones i have found convert of an edger. I definitely don’twant electric with cord. So whats a reliable trimmer than converts to an edger, gas or cordless battery?

I bought a TASK FORCE trimmer, but i hadto rewind the line and it did not ‘feed’ out the line as stated it would . It didn’t have much power to get even tall grass around my fence cut.I would like your opinion on ANY cordless trimmer/weedwackers you have. I am looking at the black and decker one, but need the adjusting handle, and telescoping body, asme and my hubby are different heights, and the edging isn’t a factor since i have a edger already. I need it to be CORDLESS.
