Cordless Trimmer by Craftsman

Good trimmer in terms of weight and performance.

Craftsman C3 19.2 Volt Cordless Hedge Trimmer
The Ni-Cad battery only lasts about a half an hour and the cutter struggles a lot with even branches around 1/4" or slightly larger. It needs a Li-Ion battery. It is pretty easy to handle though.

C3 Hedge Trimmer

Tired of mixing 2-cycle gas, I wanted an electric hedge trimmer and then I found this obe, which takes the same battery as my drill. Performance is great, I have no complaibts whatsoever, I think other C3 lawn tools are in my future!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great for the desert brush

I bought it for the 22" blades. It works well for the desert brush in Arizona where you do not want to get your hands or face too close to the thorns, insects or critters. The 19.2 volt battery works well for normal homeowner use. Upgraded or multiple batteries would be needed for HD use.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Outsanding!!!!

This is an outstanding hedge trimmer. I have a number of C3 19.2 volt Craftsman tools, and this has easily become one of my favorites. Used it right out of the box. Very powerful and super easy to use. Not having it attached to a cord is liberating. If it was possible to rate this higher than fivee stars I would. Nice job Craftsman.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

another great product in the 19.2 V line

We use this trimmer around the property to keep the hedges and foliage down. Great power output and a great addition to our 19.2 V tools !

real time saver!

I love the ease of using this trimmer. I have many topiaries, shrubs, and hedges. This trimmer made it quick and easy work. The only negative thing I could say is I wish the battery lasted longer. It lasts about a 1/2 hr. Then it takes 1/2 hr to recharge. It still saved time and was light enough for me to maneuver in the positions needed to trim a topiary.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Very pleased

I bought it to add to my C3 system. It's compatible with my other 19.2 v tools and it worked great , right out of the box (with my charged battery). I immediately went out and did some trimming, with great results and no difficulty.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Excellent trimmer

This hedge trimmer was a perfect replacement for a corded hedge trimmer that needed to be replaced. It's lightweight in spite of the battery and easy to use. Would recommend replacing the Ni-Cad battery that come with the trimmer with lithium ion battery, however.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Worked great

I was hesitant on how long the battery would hold out but I was very pleased. My arms were getting tired and I was ready for a break when the battery finally gave up. I also love the fact that it has the same battery as the leaf blower we recently got and my drill, saw, flashlight, set that I have. Now I can interchange between them all and I can always have a battery ready.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

It works great

Had 2 gas trimmers both quit and they do not make the parts. I have the 19.2 stuff so what the heck buy this and get another battery at least. WOW it works almost as well as the gas machines I own and no gas. Buy it.

Works Fast

Cuts really well. Makes fast work of hedge trimming. Battery lasts about 30 minutes when trimming normal growth. A little less when cutting larger branches or heavy growth. Well balanced and easy to handle. Keep blades well oiled and will stay sharp a long time.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

GREAT TRIMMER however I want to switch to Lithium

I have a few 19.2 Craftsman tools and I LOVE them. Thought I could get by with Ni CAds, but now the Lithum batteries are coming down in price and Im sick of charging up the NiCads all the time. Just get the Lithiums and you will be pleased with the Trimmer, the blower, the vaccum, the inflator etc etc etc....

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Weak and 30 minute battery

This hedge trimmer is light and cordless and that is the only good about it. Otherwise, it is not powerful enough to cut branches that is about 1/8 inch and the fully charged battery lasted only about 30 minutes. It is not worth buying this product.

Not bad

I only used it once and it trimmed several bushes and small limbs on a couple of trees, had a little trouble when I tried to cut 1/2" branches otherwise it worked fine and did it all on one charge. Sure beats draging all my cords out.

Exceeded my expectations

Great product! I thought it might not have enough power to do much of my trimming work but I was wrong. It was more than powerful enough and the charge lasted long enough to do all the headges in front of my house. I love all the 19.2 volt tools and now will be acquiring the garden tools as well.

Broke on Day 1

I was really excited when I got this because i had been using a 15 year old hedge trimmer. The first time I used it, it wouldn't cut though. it was making a really bad sound like something was jumping time inside of the handle. I will say that Sears was very nice when I returned it, and gave me my money back.
