    Hedge cutterFantastic!

    FabulousI chose a Worx hedge trimmer because I already have a grass trimmer and the batteries can be shared; this item also comes with the fast battery charger which I didn’t get with my grass trimmer and it makes a huge difference to charging times. If you have a choice of charger, always choose the fast charger option if you can as a battery can be charged in just an hour vs 5 hours with the mini option.The hedge trimmer is phenomenally good; the blade length ensures I can cut stuff that is otherwise out of reach without having to resort to using a ladder, which I avoid for safety reasons. I also found it cuts through fairly thick, even woody stems, with ease. Something that you prune with secateurs or shears in an hour can be trimmed much more efficiently and neatly in just 5 minutes using this.I found it lightweight and powerful, much better than I remember my old hedge trimmer was and I don’t regret choosing this instead of a petrol model. The batteries last a good time in use and it helps that you can swap the same battery between different Worx tools, plus the fast charger makes a big difference to turnaround times if you do need to recharge as you go along.

    Good instrumentA great surprise that the battery lasts so long, I was not expecting this performance. I used it to remove about four foot of this years growth on my magnolia, reached from ground level, and trim a short length of hedge on one charge of the 2Ah battery. Very pleased.

    Assembly problem bad pictogram instructionsArrived 2 DAYS EARLY in a scruffy box which made me think I was getting a customer return, however everything inside looked ok.I found the assembly really difficult, particurly fitting the Front Powerhandle onto its housing, I did NOT EXPECT to have to use considerable force to get it on, in fact I had to look up a You Tube video to confirm that what I was doing would not snap it. The pictogram instructions are useless and confusing.HAVING SAID ALL THAT I got the machine assembled and out to the garden today. Very impressive even with my previously bought 1.3 Ah battery. Lightweight fast and a pleasure to use

    Easy to useI have several tools in the power share range so it was a no brained to get the hedge clippers to suit. Very pleased with the purchase and its good that you can buy the item bare,( no battery). I will continue to add to the tools as they all seem very good quality. I have 5 tools in the range, spread over several years and all still performing well.

    Hedge trimmer (i.e. not cutter) is accurate. Does what the Worx 801E shrub/grass shear/pruner ought.This is a lovely lightweight little trimmer. Will take larger A/h battery too, but not needed. I did a really long hedge with provided 1.5Ah.Do not confuse it with a hedge cutter if that is what you want though; you will be most disappointed!It is just capable of trimming those new shoots that have sprung up since you gave the hedge a good cut a few weeks ago, – nothing more.It will cut a little bit thicker piece of say privet – provided that you single out the bits that you want to cut one at a time.If you are used to using a proper hedge cutter, then this can get annoying even when trimming new shoots because if you go low enough to catch the top of the hedge at all, the thing snags. It doesn’t stop necessarily, just ‘catches’ and stops your travel across the hedge. Annoying.Having said that, it does cut the new growth; (I used on hawthorne and privet). And its ideally suited for shaping soft bushes (again thin or soft growths). Keep trimming often and it will do the job. Do hedges with a big cutter say twice a year and trim in between times. I shall do that, – it is a decent lightweight trimmer, I’m not decrying it.If that is what you want in an appliance, this is easy to hold and use.In fact as per the title above; it does what the Worx 801E shrub/grass shear/pruner ought to do (but cannot) – at very little more cost. (Get a cheap Worx strimmer for the grass part, – those are ace).

    3 stars is unfair but not sure if its used?Box was broken by DPD delivery, good job it wasn’t a present. Inside everything was loose and not packed which is why I think it was a returned item, hence 3 stars. The hedge trimmer itself is really good. Already had a battery which was why I bought it. 3 stars is unfair on the item as it deserves 5 but Amazon, sorry you should do better.

    ExcellentThe media could not be loaded.

     Brilliant hedge cutter. Simple as . Does what it says on the box. Have a look at video .Worx products are great value and will be adding more to my collection.

    Excellent lightweight trimmerExcellent lightweight trimmer – purchased via Amazon Warehouse so good price, I have a number of Worxs tools so happy with the quality of the brand, and have a number of larger batteries and a fast charger.This trimmer handles the fresh growth on our various shrubs and bushes easily, far easier and tidier than hand shears! Easy to use and the safety features work well. I am using with larger 4ah batteries which I already owned so no idea on the life of the supplied batteries (1.5ah) but I trimmed all I needed to and then used same battery on Worxs strimmer and still plenty of life left in it. Ideal for our needs – no long hedges to do or anything like that, just approx six shrubs & bushes, so did not want anything too big, and easy to get out to tidy a patch up without the bother of extension leads etc.Like other reviewers I found that the online warranty system would not accept the model number, however I contacted Worx via their Facebook page and they gave me customerservice @ worxtools . com to contact and they have confirmed the same day the warranty extension in the form of the email you normally get when you register online, so mine is covered until August 2022 for one purchased August 2019. No explanation as to what the problem is but happy that warranty is extended and they were very quick to respond both on Facebook & via email. NOTE does not show up on the registered tool list on the online, which is a shame. (Don’t try the sales@ email address as I just got an auto respond email indicating that not been received – or that is what Google translate from the Chinese words said!)
