The Black & Decker HH2450 receives the most recommendations among electric models in online reviews. It has now been replaced by the HH2455, which is identical except that the rear handle rotates 180 degrees and can be locked into one of five positions. At just over six pounds, the HH2455 is relatively lightweight, and the lock-on switch makes it easier to tackle large trimming jobs. Owners praise its wide cut path and say it is capable of cutting through 3/4-inch-thick branches. This Black & Decker is covered by a two-year warranty. If you want the freedom to trim farther than 100 feet from an electrical outlet, reviews recommend the Black & Decker NHT518 (*Est. $80) .
