Ask An Expert

Is this trimmer heavy?

The new #74466 trimmer has a 16" blade that weighs only 3.8 lbs. and it's very compact design makes it easy to use.

Can these trimmers reach tall hedges?

A hedge trimmer with a longer blade lets you reach higher and deeper across hedges, which is ideal for tall privacy hedges.

What is a dual-action blade and what does it do for me that a single-action blade doesn't?

It means both parts of the blade move in opposite directions at the same time instead of having one fixed piece with the other piece moving back and forth. This results in less vibration and quicker, more efficient cutting of  larger branches.

How does this SAWBLADE feature work?

Located at the end of the blade, the SAWBLADE has a serrated edge with sharp teeth (similar to a reciprocating saw blade), which lets you cut through thicker branches that may not fit between the normal teeth.
