Long Reach Hedge Trimmer
This telescoping hedge trimmer provided the best cutting performance in evaluations by the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute. Its removable 20-volt lithium-ion battery drove a dual-action 20″ hardened steel blade at 1,300 strokes per minute to easily cut through branches up to 5/8″ diam., far superior to other units that required multiple passes. The Best unit also had the quickest charge time at just over an hour and delivered an hour of continuous use. It has a 10-position pivoting head, rotating handle, and a telescoping shaft that lets you easily reach under and above bushes up to 12′ tall.
