First Impressions and Presentation

It can be a real obstacle looking for a good hedge trimmer. DeWALT is so confident in their product that they offer consumers a 3 year limited warranty along with 1 year free service and a 90 day money back guarantee. That says a lot in itself about their confidence in the tools and equipment they manufacture.

No assembly is required so already that is a bonus. It comes with a protective sheath, battery and charger. No need to buy separately at added cost. Another great feature is that the battery is interchangeable with other 20 V MAX tools

The ability to use one single battery with various tools is not only practical but cost effective. As most battery operated tools come with battery and charger. If you do own more than one tool in the same system it can enable you to work continuously instead of waiting for your battery to recharge. I find this to be one of my favorite perks. Owning multiple tools means multiple batteries. It makes my life a great deal easier just swapping batteries out instead of having to wait for one to charge. I hate having to wait around when I get in the mood to get things accomplished.

A powerful motor and sharp blade can allow you to get a great deal of work done in a short amount of time. With its compact, lightweight design this hedge trimmer is sure to help you tackle those edges and shrubs.
