Their description:

500W motor
Cuts branches up to 16mm thick
Includes Blade Cover
Blade length approx. 51cm
10m cable

A good price for a reasonably powerful hedge trimmer.Three year warranty is a bonus.

Negatives: Not a 60cm blade, and only 16mm branch chopping (There's a Qualcast at Argos, 600W, 60cm blade and 20mm chop, but that's 43 quid at the mo).

However, Aldi tools tend to be cheap & cheerful, but value-for-money.

Just used my Tesco one for the first time today, and it broke. So I'm not overly impressed!

This hedge trimmer is brill, just bought it and used it.
Cheaper than the Argos one and has 100W more power and lead is 4 mtrs longer as well.

Great deal for 20 quid.

My Tesco one died today too

Glad I got this on Day One (only 4 left by mid-morning). It did a great job on my hedges, reducing their height by 50% quickly & easily.

For those who want or need the next spec up (the 60cm blade mentioned with a cut width of 24mm) ~ for an extra tenner Lidl's Florabest model hits the shelves on Monday (1st September 2014) in the 'Garden Helpers' promotion.

I've watched prices this Summer and, at £29.99, the Lidl model looks like a deal as good as this one from Aldi. Between them the two stores cover a wider spec & offer a 2nd chance to those who missed out on Aldi's bargain buy. Both also add value by including a 3 year warranty. The Florabest is very like the Aldi model design-wise & uses the same 2-hand safety switch..full spec below

Florabest Electric Hedge Trimmer
• Laser-cut steel safety blade
• Glass-fibre reinforced plastic
• Cutting Length = 600mm
• Cutting Speed = 2,800 cuts/min
• Branch width = 24mm
• Weight = 3.6kg
• Immediate blade stop <0.5 sec
• 3 Year Lidl Warranty
• View product vid on the lidl website

NB: a 2nd Florabest model is in this promo ~ the 'Electric Long Reach Hedge Trimmer'. As its name suggests, the extra-long aluminium shaft & retractable blade (cutting height = up to 3.5m) are designed to reach inaccessible areas. It has a 90° rotating handle & adjustable cutting angle through 150°.

Given its more specific use & the cost (£69.99), this one may not find a home with every impulse buyer but could be indispensable to those engaged in battle with unassailable foliage - hopefully it'll represent VFM too.

Went to grab this for my mum, but realised it's way too heavy for her to pick up and use for the 20 minutes it'll take to trim the hedge.
Wouldn't recommend if you intend to use for the same purpose.

However, still voted hot as it's a bargain at 20 quid WITH a three-year warranty.. can't go wrong!
