If you think hedge trimming is depressing, have some fun while you prune. Discover your hidden artiste by trimming an upright evergreen tree into a spiral or a gold thread falsecypress (Chamaecyparis pisifera 'Aurea') shrub into a golden ball. Get more inspired and carve a bunny out of a boxwood.

The OREGON® 40V MAX* Cordless Hedge Trimmer is ready when you are to sculpt a topiary masterpiece or just cut back an overgrown shrub. The lithium-ion 40-volt Max* battery pack holds its charge for months on the shelf. You can also keep additional battery packs on hand for bigger jobs, as the interchangeable packs swap out in seconds. In fact, now through September 30 anyone who purchases a tool kit is eligible to receive a free extra 1.25 Ah battery pack via mail-in rebate.

Be creative as you trim. To get that formal tight foliage look, the hedge trimmer is the way to prune. The OREGON® 40V MAX* Cordless Hedge Trimmer will get you through all your trimming needs quickly and easily, giving you less time working and more time “resting” or playing. Its 24-inch dual-action blades reduce vibration and its 8.8-pound weight is ergonomically balanced so it won’t wear you out using it. It is a workhorse, too, cutting branches up to 3/4 inches thick.

Starting is a dream; no gas cans, no oil to mix, no ropes to pull. Safety is a key factor when using any cutting power tool. You shouldn't run with scissors and you really should not walk from one shrub row to the next with running cutting blades at your side. Since you do not have to use a pull-cord, just pull a trigger, you can stop and start the OREGON® Cordless Hedge Trimmer with ease. The instant start and stop keeps you in better control and safer between jobs.
The OREGON® 40V MAX* Cordless Hedge Trimmer is quieter than gas powered trimmers, quiet between cuts and the noise level is low during use. You can hear people and pets approach. Listen. The breeze is rustling the leaves. The birds are singing. It is a glorious day to be outdoors. Easy sculpting or trimming, the choice is yours.
