Love this great little trimmer


Purchased this when I only had the use of one hand but has instantly become a favourite gardening tool.
Perfect for shaping clumps of ornamental grasses, tidying up shrubs or topiary, dead-heading, clipping along the edge of beds etc.
Would not use it to do a hedge of any size, but it is great for trimming back any shaggy bits between major trims.
Battery charge adequate for the kind of jobs described.

Deserves a spot in the garden shed


Performs well for light pruning including the Lilly Pillies. Excellent battery holds charge for ages with good recharge times. When changing cutter heads I hold the unit upside down in left hand, place cutter on base and hold down with thumb, with right hand nudge power on and everything will line up for you. Blades are supposed to be self sharpening but will dull over time even with normal use, I have sharpened mine a couple of times – all good.

This trimmer is good for light trimming.


After using it a few times I have no complaint about this trimmer, it works well and seems to hold it's charge. I previously kept away from battery operated tools as they had a bad record for battery life.I also have two other Ozito cordless tools,namely a drill and a screwdriver that have good battery life. Because of their good battery performance I had no hesitation in purchasing this trimmer.

perfect for its grade, very good battery lasting


If you use it lightly that use it to cut grass or thin branches, around 3mm thick, it does perfect job. Also, it is light, good for single tree trimming. May not be enough for a whole hedge. Battery lasting is big surprise for me as ozito battery was not having good reputation, but this tool has changed my mind, battery last 1 hour. Price is also sweet. Battery charging time is not problem for me. 1 hour / day is enough for me. Also, i have a small backyard, i dont have space for big line trimmer, this tool is perfect for me.

It's a wee ripper


Brilliant little machine for those smaller trimming needs. The charge life on the Battery is great. Have used it for a couple of hours. Put it away for a few months. Taken it out and it is still charged.
Changing the cutting heads is easy although a few things have to line up.
You will however still need to take the garden shears out with you when using the hedge cutters as anything the thickness of a pencil. Will jam in the blades. But for deheading your Daisies or other similar plants. It is all you need

The perfect lightweight cordless trimmer


Used it once and it will be out on the verge on next collection day


The shears could not manage something as simple as a Syzygium australe bush. Complete waste of money. Even the hedge trimmer struggled with the simplest task. Manufacture of the product is not very sturdy, too many plastic parts. Battery takes way too long to charge. Not even worth the lowest rate here. Terribly disappointed, would not recommend to anyone.
Easy to store

I bought one from Bunnings in September 2012. It has packed it in (April 2013). I am going to return it tomorrow. Rubbish.
