Toro 51496 Cordless 24-Volt Hedge Trimmer

Toro’s powerful, extended-life, 24-volt max* hedge trimmer provides a cutting width of 24 inches for extended reach and offers a cordless design that makes it easy to access hedges just about anywhere–great for larger yards where a cord just won’t reach. The trimmer’s not only lightweight and easy to use, but it also runs quietly, which both you and your neighbors will appreciate.

Even more, the hedge trimmer’s ergonomic handle rotates 90 degrees in each direction for convenient accessibility when trimming vertically, and its dual-action blades greatly minimizes vibration when compared to a single-blade hedge trimmer. With its soft-grip assist handle for reduced hand fatigue, the hedge trimmer measures 8 by 8 by 36 inches and carries a two-year warranty.

It easily lasts around 40 – 60 minutes, depending on usage. On my .25 acre corner lot, I can…
