When you are looking for a back yard tool such as a hedge trimmer you want something that is going to get the job accomplished. 

Many homeowners and contractors are looking to battery operated tools for their work needs. By doing so allows them to be able to perform their tasks without having to mess with gas and oil, nor having to drag around heavy cords.

The BLACK+DECKER LHT321FF is a cordless model that comes with a 20Volt MAX Lithium Ion battery and charger. It also belongs to a 20 Volt MAX system of tools offered by the manufacturer.

 This hedge trimmer has been ergonomically designed to help provide consumer comfort and wellbeing. Additionally there are comfort grips that can enable user an easier time handling the tool.

Cutting Features

To help ensure that you have a productive time working the BLACK+DECKER LHT321FF 20V MAX Lithium POWERCOMMAND Powercut Hedge Trimmer is equipped with a dual action 22 inch blade that has the reach to help you get to those hard to reach places. Being not so tall this is a great asset as it does help me get to spots that I struggle reaching.  The motor provides up to 2400 cutting strokes per minute which can help you quickly go about your business.

The Dual action blades assists to minimize the vibration created thus can allow for less fatigue and stress on the hands and arms. BLACK+DECKER LHT321FF 20V MAX has the capability to easily slice through branches up to ¾ inches thick. It can cut through tangles and jams which can make your hedge trimming and overall landscape trimming a nightmare. I have found this to be a great feature especially when working in the berry patches. The minimized vibration also makes it easier for me to work and have more control.

You can get up to over an hour of runtime depending on what work you are tackling and the charge time is about the same.

Safety and Comfort Features

Having been ergonomically designed this hedge trimmer has been built to help you have an easier time taking on those tedious outdoor challenges.  The BLACK+DECKER LHT321FF 20V MAX Lithium POWERCOMMAND Powercut Hedge Trimmer has Premium Micro Texture grip to help ensure you have an easier time handling the tool.

Another great fact is that by being battery operated you can get rid of that heavy cord. No more dragging excess weight behind you that can cause uneven weight distribution causing more stress on your hands, wrists and arms.

Also gone is the need for gasoline and oil, making this an environmentally friendly tool. Bonus no more messes and cleanup needed of noxious fluids. No more oil stains on the cement or concrete. For me this is really great as I am always spilling gas when I try to fill the tanks, then I have the added cleanup before I can get back to work. To top it off I then end up smelling like gas. Another great perk no more money being spent on gas and oil or tune ups. You can take the money you saved and treat yourself to an ice cream when the job is done or a latte if you prefer.

This model is lightweight and compact at only 7.85 pounds which is lighter than a gallon of milk.  Its length is 40 inches x7x7.5 so it can be easier to use.
