Because it is so lightweight my back no longer hurts me to clip the hedges in order to trim up around my garden. One more thing I favor a lot concerning the Garden Groom hedge trimmer is the fact that sucks up all of the trimmings as I cut. With some other trimmer I would cut off what I wished to and it would fall onto the ground or in to the bush itself. Then after finishing I will need to shake the bush to have the rest of the clippings out.
The Garden Groom has a capturer that holds all the clippings. First it dices the limb into tiny small pieces then it vacuums it down into its holding container. To dump the clippings all I have to do is unclip the container and dump it in to the rubbish. This is much easier than attempting to bag it.
The blade includes a special cover over it so it’s impossible to chop the power cord. I did so that once with the old trimmer which i had. It was an extremely scary experience and I do not wish to repeat it. Just the limbs that you want to chop go into where the blade is to be diced up into tiny pieces.
Overall the Garden Groom is a very effective and light-weight cutter. I love it and use it often.
