Sun Joe HJ602C Review

The Sun Joe HJ602C is another option in the electric grass shears category that will be useful for the dual purpose of trimming small shrubs as well as tidying up lawn edges and places where the mower couldn’t reach.

Being cordless makes it the ideal tool to add to your array of tools that you normally carry round about the yard when doing regular maintenance work. That and the fact that it only weighs 2.5 pounds is an added bonus.

Reviews being left from a good substantial amount of users of the Sun Joe HJ602C are fairly mixed. Some people have left comment like “Disappointed” and “Piece of junk” while others have left glowing reports like “Excellent hedger” “Great little trimmer” and “Great for the money”. That will give you some idea of the wide variations on user’s experiences with this little hedger.

As a side note: In reality there are a few things to take into account when searching out the best electric hedge trimmer be it for trimming conifers or small box hedging.

Things like power, durability, warranties and price. Any tool when purchased should be used for the job it was designed to do.

For a high hedge we would need an electric pole hedge trimmer, certainly not a Sun Joe HJ602C, unless you were 10 foot tall and had plenty of time on your hands.

To prevent the possibility of accidentally starting up the trimmer a safety switch has been incorporated into the design. The warranty on this one is for a full two years.
