I am a Makitia 18 volt fan... have my whole construction tool chests filled with the 18 volt system...
I like the versatility of the system itself... this particular accessory is a bit unwieldy with weight and balance issues, using the power-head...awkward is the throttle when choking up on the cutter head to hold it while cutting. Now, i'm not a 90 pound weakling by any means...

It does cut 1/4 to 3/8 limbs with ease, as i trimmed my apple tree spring 2 foot shoots down for that mushroom look of Japanese maples... The origami of Feng Shui gardening at it's best...

*** three stars:
I would give this 5 stars if it were not so awkward...and lean to just the hedge trimmer without the articulating head as this one...

I do not own the latter, non-articulating head... but it is clear to me it would be easier and lighter to wield without suffering arm fatigue and the early weariness of the forearm and biceps.... One would have to be in great shape to not feel the stresses associated with this tool.

I do like the ability to bend the head to do overhead trimming from the ground... all the former does apply... It's heavy!
