My dad gave me his B&D trimmer many years ago, which worked great. So, I didn't hesitate when I saw this model on sale. Took it out of the box, hooked the cord in the clever holder and plugged it in. It worked perfectly and reduced my trimming time by two hours when using hand shears earlier.
This is my first experience with any electric hedge trimmer. It was easy to use and I appreciate the trimming instructions/tips. The cord did not stay in the retainer but I may not have hooked it properly. I'll try again next season.
