Used this unit for the first time today. Replaces a cord powered trimmer. Am very pleased with the light weight of the unit and ease of handling. I clipped two fairly large hedges and still had plenty of battery power in reserve. Great value at $129 inc battery..
Have used this unit heaps.
I got this unit to replace a mains powered black and decker unit that I had. I had used my old unit for many years and decided I had enough. I got this to hack at some overgrown bushes because the task of getting the extension chord out and prancing around with it had become too daunting. Now I just get this unit out every 4-8 weeks, slap in a battery and just trim everything back.
Remember to oil and sharpen your blades for best results and longevity.
I bought this as I didn’t have the cash for a petrol powered trimmer. I thought it might last for a few jobs but 2 years later it is still going great. Light weight and almost gets the yard done with the charge of one 2.0 amp battery. I got the blower as well and it’s still going strong after 2 1/2 years. Love Ozick. For the price you can’t go wrong.

Lightweight Beast of a machine!
I put off getting a hedge trimmer for a while now but as I have already got the cordless ozito blower and whipper snipper I stuck with this awesome brand.
I can't speak highly enough as this hedge trimmer lasted longer than my blower would and I was left with enough charge after a big job.
The selling point and bonuses are
*the 5 year warranty
*Lightweight like my blower vac and whipper snipper
*did a better job than what I could believe
*even did my rose bushes
I swear by ozito cordless products as they save a lot of hard yakka and my back as I have a huge yard.
Next I'd love to get their mower.
Good tool if you do not need small spares
I have used the Ozito Trimmer for a couple of years and I am quite satisfied with its performance, including the lasting battery charge. However, last week one of the screws holding the blade had its head broken off. I contacted Ozito through Bunnings to get an spare screw. The answer is that they can provide the screw only as a blade assembly to a cost of $88.00, and they do not provide the technical details of the screw. By the way, the complete trimmer skin is sold at Bunnings for $89.00!
Great tool and value for money
Bought this cordless hedger to replace one that died in less than 3 years. I use it to do topiary on 4 smallish trees and miscellaneous hedging. I have another Ozito equipment with power share, so bought skin only (without battery) Easy to use and light weight. Cuts clean.
Got the display model at price of $59.....a good bargain with 5 year warranty.
Have always bought trade tools Milwaukee, Makita, Honda and Sthil
Bought this for my wife with rapid charger, now she cant get it off me perfect for what Im trimming, nothing major manly wisteria, bouganvilia, mock orange
Havent run battery flat yet but only use it for about 15 mins at a time and always put battery back on charge after use
Cant beat it for the price and very light and easy to use
I love my tools and am always suprised when a cheap tool works well
Received for christmas as yet to use the hedger but have put the pole trimmer to good use. At first l found a little awkward to handle, but with a little getting use to. Was soon handling it like a utube pro. What i havent been able to do on most occasions and thus causing me to rate the product lower is get anything that comes close to a clean cut on any green wood. These branches are to high to be able to clean up with a hand saw, so hoping no disease or fungicide gets in. I would recommend this for anybody who potters about the garden and prunes back here and there. For a professional gardener however, it will very quickly make you look unprofessional
Great product, cuts through hedge in no time! Battery lasts without having to charge which is a bonus! Got this along with a pole saw, havent used saw yet. I highly recommend this for anyone wanting to make their life easier in the garden, saves so much time no more pruning by hand!!
Good for basic home tasks
I got this with the cordless 36V lawnmower and have had no worries at all. I only have a small hedge about 12m long in the backyard which this sorts out really easily. If you need to cut any branches more than 2cm wide I would shop elsewhere, but for my purposes this is perfect. Can't argue about the price too.
Much better cutting than I expected.
I've got a 10 year old mains power Ryobi which certainly is powerful and cuts well, but is heavy and extremely difficult to use at anything other than horizontal, even with the button on the grip taped in the on position to avoid wrist damage. (don't try this at home, it's dangerous)
Having bought a few Ozito tools over the years and found that for normal home use they work fine I thought I'd give the hedge trimmer a go.
Certainly works well on box hedges and is a treat for trimming large diosmas, which I use to do with clippers and it took a...
I have a few of the Power X Change tools by Ozito so I thought that I would risk the hedge trimmer. The expression never trust a farmer with a chainsaw comes to mind. I attacked my yard with gusto and was surprised that it actually cut through branches that fitted between the shears 7 to 10 mm. I was able to completely trim all of my shrubs and trees on the one charge from the large battery. I fully expected it to manage a third or less of what it did. I would happily buy on for a gift for someone as well. Plus the warranty is excellent too.
Very surprised at its awesome performance
Let me start by defining my experience. Haven't trimmed hedges before the weekend, so its my first time. Not sure what the hedges were but they were mature (10 years) and the branches i cut were up to 7mm thick. And lastly i also have a Stihl HS81T that i used at the same time.
This little electric trimmer, i really didn't have that much of an expectation to be able to cut through much more than the 'tidy up' phase of clipping the fresh growth to keep the shape. Have a hedge that hasn't been shaped for the last 5 years probably so pulled out...both my trimmers, petrol and electric. The stihl powered through them, but we know that. The ozito couldn't get through the thickest stuff which i really didn't expect it to, but surprisingly cut through branches about 4 or 5mm thick on this older hedge. Where there was a larger clump of thick branches it didn't perform that well either. But it really surprised me when it got through all of the side growth (had trouble with the top growth on the thick stuff, but i did take off about 1 foot) and the ease at which it did it. If you have well maintained hedges or a young hedge this will do the job no issues. If you keep on top of it, this unit will be all you really need. Also if they are thicker and need a major tidy up i think these would do most of the job and you would be able to get away with a set of hand trimmer (scissor like) for the thicker branches and this would then take over if you keep on top of it. Very happy with the performance of these and the lightweight. All ready have some other ozito Power X Change units so have the battery ready to go.
Questions & Answers
Will it cut through flax?
Are you harvesting it to make sails for your tall ship? ;)
Generally, these type of trimmers are not good at cutting fibrous stems. I can’t imagine any hedge trimmer handling flax all that well unless you keep the blade super sharp and clean the mating surfaces. Have owned a couple of this style of trimmer and even pittosporum was a bit on the fibrous side.
