Reader Sizod clued us in to the fact that Black & Decker’s 18V Hedge Trimmer is available for $80 from Amazon (which is a pretty decent deal), but by adding the coupon code “YARDSALE” you receive an additional $8 off, dripping the price to $72 — which seems to be near the bottom of the range in Froogle.  (We did see one place selling it for $69 this morning.)

We haven’t tried this tool out yet, mainly because neither Sean nor I have hedges big enough to require much trimming.  So if you’ve had any experience with it, drop a comment here for Toolmongers who might be considering going cordless this summer.

    I know it has been said before, but I love my Sawzall for hedges. I have an old blade dedicated to trimming the hedges. Not worth a seperate tool purchase. Unless I need an excuse for a second sawzall.

    Does Makita or Dewalt make anything like this? I’ve already got a ton of batteries.

    I have this thing and I love it. I’m not normally a shill for battery-operated tools, but this is perfect. I actually use it more for controlling weedy areas around my house than for hedge trimming (I only have a few small hedges). But it goes through anything like butter – things even a gas-powered string trimmer wouldn’t touch, like full-height thistles and bittersweet, which is VERY woody.
