I don't know about this corded model, but I have the cordless one from B&D which looks similar and probably has the same blade and maybe the same motor. It's better than I thought it would be and has cut everything I wanted to cut with it and more that I thought it wouldn't be able to handle.

But who needs TWO?

Here is a quick safety video featuring this product. However the instructor does not cover the proper technique for two trimmers at the same time.

I have problems not hurting myself by cutting myself or electrocuting myself (by cutting the cord) with one of those puppies. Imagine having to control two of them and worrying about two powercords?!?! Yikes!

I can see it now on the emergency room boards...

"Man vs two hedgetrimmers" instead of the classic "Man vs hedgetrimmer"

Maybe I can get cut AND electrocuted!

Good thing we provided a nifty picture of the packaging so you don't have to worry about this!

I have one of these and I have to say it is a great trimmer. I think I paid this for one. Great deal here for two and you can use the other one for a Halloween costume prop!

One for the shrubs...another to take on the 'Beiber Hair'-styled tweens at the mall. Two great uses!

We have one of these and its pretty great as far as hedge trimmers go. They are zip right through extension cord sized branches. Even more efficient if the "branches" really are extension cords, so I'm wishing they came with a 4-pack of cords.

Two, so that after you cut the cord, you can finish the job.
Don't want to have a half cut hedge.

WE LURV YOU TOO! Dork!!!

You need two because the first one will overheat and lock up. This tool is a waste of money. I bought one of these and now it's sitting disassembled in my workshop.

If you get these, you'll have a hedge trimmer dual. (Package.)

If you and a buddy, (or 2 buddies) fight with these, THEN you will have a DUEL.

Dual=2.

Duel=fight.

Nope, this one's safety switch is on one handle, and can even be locked on. Careful

Why two? Because inadvertently your neighbor would want to borrow one while you're using one too.

I'm having a really hard time imagining the sort of person who needs two hedge trimmers AND shops on a daily deal site.
On the other hand, I can easily imagine the YouTube videos this deal could spawn...

Well, I'm in for a set of these. I have about 350 ft of hedge and a spare trimmer works for me. After I wear the first one out, I'll have the other. I have shorter B&D hedge trimmers and they cut well. The longer blade will shorten my trimming time.

Is this to encourage cutting our loyalties to Ama-woot since the "real" W00T never would have done the stuff like this that we've seen lately?

Granted, there's nothing that says "drunken office New Year's Eve party" like passing along a disease or two, and maybe a pregnancy, but what's that got to do with trimming bushes?

Oh wait ... no ... you don't mean that???

My first thought is that you could go all Bruce Cambell with these on zombies but then I realized all you could do is an Edward Scissorhands haircut with them.

Sweet, now I can start that home landscaping company I always wanted. Or I can use one to carve my snow sculptures and when I ruin the motor from the water I can still have one for the spring.

I bought one of these (refurb - $25 shipped) about a month ago from B&D's eBay store. I've only used it once (because, well, things don't grow that fast this time of year) but it did the job as well as I would have hoped.

I too am not sure why in the world you'd want two of them unless you're wanting to give one as a Christmas gift and keep the other one...

For all those complaining about this being of no use because you live in an apartment: Our town home complex has a landscape company as well. I just got sick of them not trimming our hedges as often as we'd like (as in, we're lucky if it's once a year) so for $25 and 10 minutes of time it was worth the stress reduction to me to just be done with it. If you need something like this, just buy it. (And then give the 2nd one for Christmas.)

Roses are red.

And so am I.

Of course you need to two of these! Smart people always have a back hedge trimmer. I might be in for two, which is four, or three, which is six. Can never have to many of these you know!

I see a lot of people talking about zombies with these hedge trimmers. I used to think the chainsaw was the worst zombie weapon ever, but now that I see people suggesting this being used for zombie defense I will have to change my mind. Chainsaws are terrible because they run on gasoline are very loud. This 'weapon' would be even worse for several reasons:
A. It needs to be plugged in (if there even is power your distance is limited)
B. It's brightly colored
C. It's still very loud.
4. It wouldn't even be able to cut through bone.

I'm sure there are more reasons, but these are the first few that come up to mind. Your best bet would be picking up A baseball bat (or other blunt beating tool) and have your car outfitted with a pushbar. That way you could drive to costco which is the perfect zombie hideaway for several reasons:
1. Big Metal Doors
2. A lot of food
3. There is a Pharmacy
D. That great feeling that comes with being part of an exclusive members only club.

Anyways. I hope this could help.

TL;DR - These are no good on zombies

What??? Just because of a few billion zombies you're going to let your hedges go wild?

Civilization lost indeed. Barbarians.

I figure a few dozen untiring undead will provide plenty of electricity (harnessed via treadmills and generators) for all my landscaping needs. Silver lining for my electric trimmers.
