I am pleased with the Earthwise extended handle trimmer. It allows me to trim tall hedges. I do wish, however, that I could set it to "On" and have it operate without having to hold the trigger down continuously. Also, it is frustrating that every time I release the trigger I must push a small start button and hold it down while squeezing the trigger to get the thing going again. I understand the reason why; it's a safety feature. I presume other hedge trimmers are the same way, although I don't know for sure. Finally, it is difficult for me to compare this trimmer with others since this is the first hedge trimmer I have ever had. ( I usually use a hand trimmer, which is lighter but not long enough to reach the tops of tall hedges). I was surprised and disappointed, though, that I had to go over the same area more than once to achieve a real level top cut. But that might simply be a result of the type of hedge I have, which is not particularly dense in some places. All in all, though, I am pleased with this hedge trimmer.
