Rated 3 out of 5Â by HomeGardener Good value, poor performance
I bought this product based on its value, and the fact I didn't have much hedge to cut (10m) however right after starting it for the first time it would stutter and stall unless the trigger was held on slightly. Have to say it was cutting excellently, can't fault it there. But after 10 minutes of running, it stalled completely and refused to restart, after about 5 minutes of trying it did restart and then stalled a few minutes later. This repeated 2-3 more times before I returned for refund and bought a Mountfield trimmer instead which ran faultlessly. Could have just been a 1 off I suppose.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Homerenovatorno1 Dont buy this
I bought this as the reviews looked good, got it home, filled it up, but the screw cap leaked...not just a drop...it poured out. I took it back, got another but it had the same problem.
The third one didnt so I took it home, started cutting the hedge, all great for 20 mins then it stopped and wouldnt start again for about half an hour. This thing over heats, loses power and a job that should take a couple of hours takes all day.
I am taking it back and going for a more expensive unit...I guess there is a reason its cheap...DONT BUY THIS HEDGE CUTTER.

After reading the reviews I went ahead to purchase the trimmer to trim some mixed hedges. The first two days use the trimmer was fantastic cut through the hedges lovely. The 3rd day it ran for 45 mins and then simply refused to start no matter what I attempted. Took it back to screwfix and exchanged with no quibble. This new one however would run for 30 - 40 mins and then stall and stop, it then would not restart until it had cooled down. If you've got all day to trim hedges and nothing better to do, all well and good. This one went back to screwfix for a refund with no quibble, they say you get what you pay for, but not always true, but in this case, what can I say.
