Second Thoughts - I was too kind

I have just re-read my review of some two years ago. While I tried hard to keep it a balanced and objective report, after two seasons' use I would like to add the following: The inclusion of the words "effortless" and "ergonomic" in the description are very far from the truth. To be considered effortless, you would need a very well behaved hedge of low or medium height and width and a powerful tool (pass) of light (fail!) weight. Using the AMW10 is often exhausting. As for ergonomic, even assembling the components fails that test. Ergonomic in use? Forget it, it is the most unwieldy tool I have ever come across. Lifting and positioning for a high cut is quite strenuous, guiding and untangling if it gets caught up is often difficult.

Not sharp as bought

Having had difficulty forcing the hedge cutter attachment through an overgrown laurel hedge, I inspected the cutting blades under a magnifying glass and found them to be rather blunt, as bought. To sharpen the two opposing cutters one must be able to separate them and clamp them on a workbench to apply the necessary file. There seems to be no easy way to do this. Has anyone successfully sharpened the cutting edges on this hedge trimmer? Why the hell is there nothing in the user leaflet about sharpening the blades? Surely having sharp cutting edges is fundamental to the safe and efficient use of cutting tools.

Heavy, clumsy and awkward

This seemed the answer to my prayers, particularly as I have a moderately high (? 8ft) but rather wide hedge. Strongly recommend anyone considering this to think very carefully:
1. If the hedge is high you will not be able to see where you are cutting and if the reach with the extender is sufficient (it probably will be) it will be a great effort to hold and steer it if you stand back for a better view. It is a question of balance - best held vertically not at an angle
2. it is very noisy; ear protection very necessary but not if your hedge adjoins a highway - you will not hear the vehicles
3. Assembly is OK, best laid flat; if assembled upright watch the bottom end to ensure the cable entry is not distorted and damaged. My experience is that assembly does not always go smoothly, there seems to be a misalignment somewhere which is cured by briefly running the motor and trying again
4. It is nowhere near as satisfactory as my Bosch PHS66G, the long handheld one, but I hoped to avoid the ladder work.
5. SUMMARY: Most likely to suit a tall narrow hedge, you will not enjoy the strain of standing back and cutting from a distance. Not from a ladder, maybe OK if you have a platform

Not for heavy duty work

This is a well made piece of kit. It looks like it is built to last. The pole fit together easily and very quickly.
I tried it out on a dense holly hedge - it got through it - eventually. Because the teeth are only 15mm apart the holly leaves stop it getting to the bits you want to cut.

All this said, it did the job. It made much lighter work trimming new wood on a hawthorne hedge.

Easy it was to handle andI really like the fume free low noise of an electric trimmer.

The chain saw attachment would be useful for getting through denser hedges.

Overall, excellent value for money. Loses a star because I think it would be more useful with wider teeth spacing.
