YES – Average of 4.7 stars from 5 have been awarded to the NHT2218 trimmer from the 11 folk who have left a review so far.

In general, users are happy enough with the hedgers performance and as one person states, how surprises they were with the power of the item. They thought that it was nearly as powerful as their previous model which was corded.

One reviewer regrets that they never took advantage of the bundled offer which would have saved them some more money. Something to bear in mind if you find yourself in the same position.
