Black and Decker GTC36552PC 36v Cordless Hedge Trimmer 550mm
Battery Voltage Explained
A tool with a higher voltage than another is a bit like choosing an engine in a car, the higher voltage will generally mean higher power & performance. As with cars though a bigger engine does not always translate to better performance so it is important to compare the specifications of tools at different voltages between different manufacturers.
Battery AH Explained
The best way to describe battery amp hour is that this is effectively the size of your fuel tank, the more amp hours your battery has then the longer the battery will last between charges. More amp hours does not increase the power of a given tool.

bought this after using a petrol one for years so was worried about the performance on my conifer hedge, but wow ! brilliant performing tool now worries at all and the cut quality is excellent yes certainly reccomend it.
Really easy to use and start, great not to have cable in the way, nice weight.
Great hedge trimmer. Works really well. Delivery was great, really fast.
This is a great product for build quality and performance You really do get what you pay for.
Does all you would expect a trimmer to do. Robust, effective, well made
well manufactured tool, simple and easy to use and cuts very well. Power boost for tough cutting is a nice little feature.
Thank you for excellent service, honesty about a greatly delayed delivery date, and then getting it to me two weeks earlier! This product replaces an identical one that I purchased three years ago. That one failed and was repaired by B&D twice under guarantee, but at a third recurrence of exactly the same problem (gearbox failure) they refused to repair it again. The new bare machine from Tooled up sounds like a sewing machine by comparison and I have high hopes it will do the fairly gentle job I ask of it for a long time. It is a delight to use.
As it was a replacement it is as expected. A very prompt and efficient service.
Very pleased with this. I bought it for myself as I wanted something Fairly light that I could whip out quickly without fussing about with wire and cable. We already have two hedge trimmers, one is a long pole type that I find very heavy. This one meets all my criteria and hopes. It is light, easy to use and cuts really well. My husband, master of our bigger heavier ones, is also really impressed with its power and it’s his tool of choice now.
This is my first cordless hedge trimmer and I love the freedom it gives. I give up cutting long before the battery does! The safety feature makes it almost impossible to set it going by mistake. I highly recommend it.
The hedge trimmer is everything they say and more, great trimmer, easy to use.
Does what I wanted it to do (cut hedge).I Have a B&D strimmer so the batteries are Interchangeable Everything works well
Excellent hedge trimmer. Good power for cutting even large hedges with a battery life of about 60-80 mins. Great tool.
Great value if you already have a battery and charger, which I have for the equally good strimmer.
Very pleased with trimmer, Battery life is good. Cuts through thicker branches. Trimmer is a little heavy
Does what it says in the brochure
Well pleased with product and 5 star service. Look forward to using Tooled Up again always polite and helpful.
Worthwhile paying a little more for a very good Product. Light and easy to use and no wires.. Tooled-up.com are an excellent company to deal with
Very pleased with this cordless trimmer. So much lighter and a delight not to have a cord to connect up and trail around all the time. The "Power Command" feature to help get through thicker branches is very helpful and works well. If you still have a corded trimmer, find a good home for it and by this bit of kit instead!
Boy’s toy bought during lockdown. Took a bit of time to arrive but in the new times perfectly acceptable
Very light and easy to use.
Excellent trimmer. Much more power than previous ones, and no heavier. The length of time between ordering and receipt was disappointing, but understandable in the present circumstances.
Nice light and well balanced hedgecutter. I thoroughly recommend it.
I have to say poor build quality because my previous one failed in the same way as that of other reviewers. The spool slipped down and stripped its plastic gear wheel. In all other respects it is good beyond expectation. Took several weeks to arrive but no criticism of Tooled-Up because they said that it would. It arrived one day earlier than forecast.
With anything mechanical, time will tell. But early signs this is a gamer changer: light enough, tough enough and long lasting battery to do all edging and strimming on a medium/large garden, with power to spare (rarely use the 'max power' setting). Have bought a hedgecutter which shares the same battery. Key will be how well the battery and its life lasts...But, as of today, would certainly buy again.
I have only used this product twice so far so cannot comment on its durability. However, my first impressions are good. It was worth the extra money to dispense with the trailing cable and, at 3.1kg, this is as light as my old cabled trimmer. It seems like a sturdy bit of kit and if I am still happy at the end of the season I will buy a bare B&D Lawnmower to share the same battery.
So glad to have lost the cord and this trimmer works well. It lacks the ability to turn the cutting edge which I would have wanted for the price, the plastic mouldings look a bit cheap and I had to finish the assembly. But it is easy to use and does a good job. Haven't had to use the special button to free up the blades yet.
Very good product. Light and easy to use. Battery lasts plenty of time. Definitely very good value for money.
Great build quality and a useful addition to the Black and Decker 36v range
Having had a heavy duty Bosch cutter, I was sceptical as to whether a lighter cordless would be as effective. Not disappointed, it is lighter , but robust and cuts thicker twigs with ease. As has a B & D strimmer it was a lot cheaper without having to buy a battery and charger. Glad I did.
Great piece of kit. Battery (that I already had) lasts much longer than I thought it might. Cutter is really powerful for its spec. Anti-jam works a treat. Let's see how long it lasts??
Absolutely delighted with the Black & Decker 36V battery hedge trimmer. Powerful and the battery lasts at least an hour of heavy use before having to recharge. Very quick recharge.
This is the second one of these I've bought. First one was used and abused by myself and a couple of mates for over two years until the gear stripped on the motor. This trimmer will take a fair bit of beating at the price, hence why I've bought another.
Bought B&D hedge trimmer, cordless. Price was competitive and delivery fast. Tried it on a long hedge and worked fine. This is my second order with Tooled-Up. Only one slight area that could be improved, the packaging was damaged, this is the second time this has happened, although the product was unaffected.
Chosen as we already have the strimmer and really like it and wanted to share the battery between the two. Great hedge trimmer, easy to use and the battery lasts well for our needs. Good weight and made easy work of hedges and shrubs.
Good hedge and shrub trimmer for light work.
Great product cut hedge really well battery lasted longer that I thought it would. And also delivery was quick. Would order again.
Really pleased with hedge trimmers for all the reasons above
good hedge trimmer
Top marks so far but early days as the trimmer has only been used once. It was easy to use and cut the hedge really easily. The longer blade made the cutting much easier. Battery charge lasted well.
Excellent service great price
Easy to set up and use. Does the job and is compatible with Black and Decker charger and battery pack
Excellent hedge cutter. Much more powerful than I expected and even more effective when I bought it to combine with a B&D strimmer which provides me with the benefit of two batteries and the option of continuous usage beyond what most would ever need
This Black and Decker cordless hedge trimmer is a very well constructed tool and it made light work of my mature hedges. The service from TooledUp was faultless and I’d be happy to purchase from them again.
Good price and nice and easy to use
I've used it only a couple of times so far but I love it, so much easier to use than a corded hedge cutter and a lot lighter than the corded one I had.
I am very pleased with my purchase. The trimmer is lightweight, powerful, and safe and easy to operate. Having no cable to worry about allows much greater flexibility when cutting. The battery life also exceeded my expectations. I would definitely recommend this product from Black and Decker.
Very good. Lightweight. Cuts branches upto 3/4 inch in width, like it says. Easy to set up. Laurels nicely cut back with not much effort. Thanks to all the other reviews :)
Bought this as replacement for worn out old hedge trimmer of the same model. One of the strongest battery driven hedge trimmers I have used. Delivered really quickly after ordering and well packaged. Would recommend.
If one accepts this trimmer for what it is, a 36v powered tool, then it is a really useful piece of kit. In times of quick growth I use it to regularly trim back new growth and shape bushes. For twice a year serious cutting back I use a petrol trimmer. As with all B&D's 36v garden tools it needs a back up battery, so the trimmer should be sold as options of bare units, one battery or two. I have several 36v B&D tools so it is not a problem for me, but anyone with just one will not be pleased to find they have to spend another £70 or so for another battery. It is a missed opportunity for B&D to please its customers and gain market share.
So far it has performed very adequately - is easy to use and not cumbersome - we look forward to many hours of trimming.
I have not had this Hedge Trimmer long and have only used it twice. I'm no expert and it's early days, but I think this is an excellent product. This Hedge Trimmer is not too heavy, cuts really well and the battery seems to have a long life. On both occasions I used the Trimmer on and off for about twenty minutes and there were still three out of four lights showing on the battery. I guess it would easily run almost continuously for well over 30 minutes. Not having a cable is an absolute godsend!
A good cordless hedge trimmer which is not too heavy and is quite powerful. Cuts cleanly. It does drain the battery fairly quickly and definitely quicker than the strimmer. B&D should release a higher capacity battery
Very pleased with the item. Only comment I would make is communication could have been a bit better as I was told I had an email sent to tell me item out of stock for a couple of weeks which I didn't receive. Then 3 days later I revived a dispatch email to say it was on its way!
This is a good robust hedge trimmer.
Good quality, works well.
Does what is required very well
Good quality hedge trimmer that does a great job at trimming hedges. Battery is inter changeable with other B&D tools which is a bonus.
