Greenworks 22612 Cordless Electric Hedge Trimmer Review

The Greenworks 22612 hedge trimmer would suit anyone with other Greenworks products that are powered by the Greenworks 20 volt lithium ion battery, sharing the battery can save a bit of money. As this unit DOES NOT come with the battery or the charger it’s not one that I would recommend due to the high cost of purchasing the battery on top of the trimmer price.

Obviously Greenworks have added this trimmer only unit, to keep costs down for buyers of their other products, which is fair enough. Purchasers of the 22612 will also have the Greenworks four year warranty with this trimmer.

Greenworks 22612 Review

Greenworks 22612 20-Volt Lithium Ion 22-Inch Cordless Electric Dual Action Hedge Trimmer (No Battery or Charger)

Power Type – Gas or Electric?


Cordless Or Corded?

Cordless – uses Lithium Ion 20 Volt battery. (Battery or Charger Not Supplied). You could choose to use the 6.0-Ah lithium-ion battery or you choose the lighter version, the 2.6-Ah lithium-ion battery.

Cutting Capability?

Suitable for cutting growth of up to 5/8 of an inch in thickness.

Blade Length?

22 inches

Suitable for Cutting Vertically?

Although it does have a D handle there is no swivel function on the rear handle which would give more comfort when trimming vertically.

Dual Action Blades?

YES – Does have dual action blades which are more efficient and cuts down in the vibration coming through to the handles.

Any Reviews?

YES – Bearing in mind that the Greenworks 22612 cordless electric trimmer does not come with a battery or the charger, the reviews are still pretty good.

It receives 4.4 stars rating from 5 stars from the 35 user so far. Below is typical of the reviews it has received.

We bought this as a part of a set (incl. blower & edger/trimmer) for a 1/2 acre suburban property. Our property only has some bushes/hedges/small trees by the entry ways and along 1 side of the lot, so this is not a heavily wooded or landscaped property (yet)… so your mileage may vary.

– very good battery life… a fully charged battery outlasted about 2 hrs of on/off hedge and bush trimming, and I saw no power fade

– none so far
