Black & Decker GTC1843L 18v Cordless Long Articulating Hedge Trimmer 430mm
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.
Black & Decker 18v System
The Black & Decker 18v Li-ion System is a range of 18v tools where all 18v batteries of all ah ratings fit all tools, allowing you to buy just a few batteries but as many of the range of bare tools that you need without the expense of a new kit each time.

This does what it is billed to do. It has made hedge cutting much easier especially the taller hedges where I no longer have to stand precariously on a tall ladder stretching out as far as I can, so it is far safer. The cutter blades cut through all but the very toughest branches. I was surprised how well it worked given the fairly small battery pack, which lasted long enough to do the work - my arms gave out first! At first the product seemed a bit flimsy in its build, but it dealt with everything. It is easy to store as it breaks down to two reasonable sized pieces.
It is heavier and more cumbersome than the flymo it replaces.Battery at 18volt is also a little disappointing as it means none of my 36 volt batteries are comparable -I have a B & d strimmer,hedgetrimmer chainsaw and blower vac so I do like Black and decker cordless products.Build quality is good but I wish the pole was adjustable.However it does the job-would I buy it again? yes I think so
The hedgecutters take a bit of getting used to but once you get the hang of the angles it becomes easy and it makes really neat straight lines.Doesn't feel very robust but it's holding up well.Have swapped to this from heavy petrol hand and pole saws that were causing pain and stopping me trimming anything.Now trimming everything without help!Accidently left them out overnight in very very heavy rain and could've cried but towel dried them and they worked no problem.Impressed with interchangeable lithium battery time,power and quick recharge time.Good for little and often hedge trims but no substitute for stilhl petrol if it's big leylandii.The blade need held at 45 degree angle for best cutting then it's easily held flat for really sharp level sides and top.Enjoying hedge cutting again!
Long reach and no trailing leads
Works very well but is too short. Hedge trimmer should come with an extra extension pole similar to that for your tree pruner.
Great for weight and simplicity
Bought a Bosch mains powered long reach hedge trimmer last year thinking that battery power would not be man enough for what I needed. The mains powered tool is heavy and unwieldy and I look for reasons not to use it. This battery powered trimmer is much easier to use so I use it more frequently to keep things under control and it does the job. Still too early to comment on reliability.
Lighter than my old one, with a much better reach. Only used it once as yet but thrilled so far.
Fairly easy to handle. Battery charge lasts. fine for high hedge trimming.
Bought this instead of a petrol one very light and easy to use only downside is it only come with one battery which is annoying.
So far so good! i previously purchased a similar petrol driven multi tool but found it was far too heavy for me & i couldn't even get it started without help :( so i saw this battery operated multi tool - i can start it because it's battery operated & it's not too heavy for me to lug around & cut my hedges!! It came with an additional spare battery so i can alternate while charging. so far no complaints :) not a bad buy.
First off, i am a 50 year young professional lady gardener. As I am also smallish at 5'3, i needed something to reach a bit higher. This was the lightest extended hedgecutter i could find. It works very well and the batteries last quite long. Only three snags: 1. No harness! I wish it had one as that would take the weight off the hands and arms. 2. It is as long as it is, cannot be extended further. So it's the length of your arms and body and the tool. So if you are a tall person you would struggle sell with an 8 foot hedge than i do. 3. Women's hands are smaller than mens. So i figured out that after switching it on one can let go of the switch and just press the lever in the handle and it will continue to work. It would be very hard to keep both switch and handle pressed at the same time continuously. i wish it could handle bigger branches. The protective pouch wont last long. But i am glad i have this tool. May look what comes out new next year. Wanted the bosch model but the weight just put me off.
Arrived at 8.30am the next day. Great product and excellent service from a very efficient supplier.
A good addition to power tools already in use. easy to use and no problems to report. also impressed with seller's service
Excellent service all round thank you. brilliant trimmer. Cannot fault it yet!
Excellent delivery service. the hedge trimmer is well made strong and looks as though it will be reliable. have used it once, it coped well with a leylandi hedge that is 12 ft high at one end. The only critisism i would make is that the angle of the holding handle and battery do get in the way a little when dealing with the high hedge, but i do think it was a very good purchase.
I purchased this trimmer to deal with several totally overgrown bushes.It was ideal for the job, apart from the fact that it was so heavy i could not hold it up, and pressing the controls at the same time, was for me almost impossible.I presume being over seventy and small did not help. my young,strong, grandson did the job for me,but complained of the weight. I think a shoulder strap would probably be of help.
Very effective cutter, quieter than most. Second battery supplied was a good bonus. Easy to put together and take apart so storage is simple. blade guard could be more substantial as it is just a simple plastic boot which i suspect will not last long. seems a little heavy at first but once you get the technique right it isn't too onerous. I can cut suprisingly high with it as when the tool is directly above you the weight does not become an issue.
Very good service, used it once and worked well , heavier than i expected .
Brilliant service from tooled up had a problem with the blade set up but was dealt with quickly and efficiently and returned to me with in a week is now working well
Much heavier than i expected and most of the weight is at the front / top. i was expecting it to extend to 3.5m, but it is about 2m, so only extends when it is held 1m off the ground!! 2 batteries are a good bonus, especially since i also own other b&d 18v items. as a 5' female, it would be good to have a balancing strap to take some of the weight, especially since the trigger is right at the base of the unit. has done a good job on a privet and a yew hedge though - more robust than my lighter, longer but ancient g-tech trimmer whose battery will not keep a charge now.
Item arrived in a couple of days and i was impressed with the speed of delivery. the additional battery was a bonus and is very useful, doubling the work time. the cutter is heavier than i thought, but easy to use once you have read the instructions, which are clear. will use tooled up again when i need any further power tools.
I am extremely disappointed with this hedge trimmer for the following reasons. 1. It can only be used with the pole attached. 2.It is very very heavy. 3. It is too long for me to operate whilst cutting the hedge. 4. The trigger to turn it on is too far from the cutters. 5. I am unable to use it. stuart dunn
