In just a few minutes, this Craftsman trimmer, which is powered by a 4-amp motor, can slice through overgrown hedges with its 22-inch dual-action blade. And the bonus power saw-like tip? It’s meant to easily sever thick branches up to 1.5 inches. (Not all reviewers agree on this, though.)
Beyond cutting your work time (and hedge sizes) in half, this corded hedge trimmer eliminates the need to charge batteries or worry about them running out of juice mid-job. Its super-sturdy handle and budget-friendly pricing under $100 are also a good look.
Ready to go right out the box, with the exception of the minor handle assembly, this power tool has a three-year limited warranty, so you’re covered in case the blades get dull before their time.
