FAQs about Battery-Powered Hedge Trimmers

What are the key differences between battery-powered and gas-powered hedge trimmers?

Gas-powered hedge trimmers are the traditional type that require buying and mixing gas and oil. They are powerful pieces of trimming equipment but can be very heavy and noisy.

Battery-powered hedge trimmers handle the same tasks as gas-powered equipment while removing any headaches over mixing fuel and running out of gas. Cordless electric equipment is not only strong, but the batteries last long enough to accomplish most trimming needs. And the best part is how easy they are to use: just insert a charged battery and push the power button!

For those homeowners with moderate to thick amounts of grass and weeds, an electric string trimmer can help you take back your yard without breaking a sweat. The DR PULSE String Trimmer features 62-volt Li-Ion power with a 450-watt brushless motor. The 2.5 Ah battery brings lots of muscle and uses a variable speed trigger that lets you rev up for tougher growth.

Are electric string trimmers lighter than gas-powered?

How long will battery-powered hedge trimmers run for?
