Makita UH6350

Pros
  • Powerful 4.6-amp electric motor
  • Requires both hands on handles for safety
  • Minimal noise and vibration
  • See-through hand guard
  • Pigtail cord and hook
Cons
  • Expensive
  • Heavy
  • Cuts up to 9/16-inch-thick branches
  • One-year warranty

If you need a longer blade for trimming wide and tall bushes, the Makita UH6350 25" Electric Hedge Trimmer has a 25-inch blade. For added safety, both hands must be on the handles to activate the blade, and it has a see-through hand guard. Although it requires dealing with an extension cord, the short pigtail cord and hook keeps strain off the connection, so it doesn't easily unplug. The manufacturer says it can handle branches up to 9/16 of an inch in diameter. It weighs about eight pounds, and one user complaint is that it feels too heavy.

The Makita UH6350 25" Electric Hedge Trimmer is recommended in a review at GaltTech.com, which appears to be based on consumer feedback. A few reviewers at Amazon.com also provide an owner's perspective.
