Little Wonder 1920

Pros
  • Durable high-carbon blade
  • Adjustable front handle
  • Relatively quiet
  • Excellent safety features
  • Easily handles branches up to half-inch thick
Cons
  • Shorter blade
  • Heavy
  • Expensive

The commercial-grade Little Wonder 1920 has a 19-inch blade and adjustable front handle for shaping hedges. Similar models have 24- and 30-inch blades. All have features to reduce vibration and fatigue. For safer operation, both hands must depress buttons on the handles, or the blade stops abruptly within half a second. If you need a powerful trimmer but don't want to be tethered to a cord, reviewers recommend the Black & Decker NHT518 (Est. $100) , which runs on a rechargeable battery.

ConsumerGuide.com names the Little Wonder 1920 a Best Buy, though editors point out that it's expensive compared with other electric trimmers. The accompanying review doesn't compare it against competing models, either. The Little Wonder is also included in comparison testing of six hedge trimmers conducted by Popular Mechanics magazine in 2004.
