"GreenWorks Long-Reach Hedge Trimmer - 24-Volt Li-Ion, 20in. Blade, Model# 22212"
Trimming without ladder
Received same week it was ordered. Plenty of power. Trims 3/4 inch branches with ease. I able to top-off privet, cherry laurel, espaliered holly, etc. easily while standing on firm ground. Love it, and my wife is ever so happy that I am off the ladder when trimming. Being 78 yo and weighing140 pounds, I have to rest pretty often due to weight of unit. Thanks.

NEW TO YARD WORK
Purchased as of Sept. 2014. I have used it twice and it has met my expectations to date. Charge lasts about 30-45 minutes depending on usage and length of running time while trimming. I'm 6'2" and the pole extension is an asset since it eliminates having to use a ladder on some of the larger shrubs. I purchased a smaller trimmer earlier this year and could have saved the money since this trimmer works well for the smaller shrubs as well. Recharging is quick about 20-30 minutes with the small lithium battery. No comment on how durable it is as it is still new. I hope it will last several years with moderate use.

Just what I expected
Being that it was reasonably priced and battery operated I didn't expect a commercial quality trimmer but it did exactly what I wanted it to do. The smaller capacity battery was on half charge after 30 minutes of cutting, I am totally satisfied at this point, I have to wait and see how it holds up.

works great, but a little heavy. Battery life is about 40 minutes, longer would be better. Batteries extra are expensive.

Long Reach, Powerful and Sharp
I used to use a ladder to trim this tall tree/shrub. Now I can be much safer and stand on the ground. Whatever these blades touch get cut, and when I was done, I had about 85% energy left on the battery pack.

Had to have a second trimmer
This is Green Works trimmer number 2.
Number 1 was left in Florida where it gets plenty of use most of the year.
But this summer we started taking care of my wife's family home in upstate NY. And there was so much trimming to be done I couldn't stand using here father's old electric 18" trimmed with its extension cord, etc.
So there were so many applications here for the Green Works battery operated long reach I ordered one that will stay here in NY.
Having a lower back issue, I find being able to stand away from what I am trimming to be a life saver. I also am better at shaping hedges with the longer reach than with a typical short handled trimmer.

It is exactly what you claimed . This is the best trimmer I have ever purchased. My 84 year-old father used it for two hours and didn't want to give it up. The greatest thing too hit my backyard.

If you have shrubs, this trimmer is a must. Not only does it extend, but the head can be put at different angles.
Very cool, good investment, would recommend to anyone who has shrubs!
