For all general hedge cutting chores and the ability to cut branches with a maximum diameter of 3/4 of an inch.

Blade Length?

22 Inch blades

Does have a D shaped handle at the front which will help a bit when working vertically, although not a swivel type of rear handle. May not matter to much if there isn’t very much vertical cutting involved.

Any Reviews?

YES – Review reports are pretty good for the Black & Decker HT22. This is the newer version of the the HT512 model which will be discontinued over time.

One difference to expect from this newer model, is that the lock-on button has been removed. Obviously B&D have re-thought the safety aspect of a lock-on feature a decided to remove it.

One reviewer has had a problem with the switch on their trimmer after 9 months of use. B&D has sent them a shipping label to send it back under the warranty. They state that this was less than a week ago – no further report on this, so I would assume all has been rectified.

The star rating system have awarded it with 4.6 from 5 stars by 31 users who gave a review.
