What is the Greenworks G40HT61K2 hedge trimmer like to use?
This is a lightweight trimmer, particularly so considering its power category and the length of the blade and it cuts fast and efficiently. The handle rotates to three different points and this combined with its weight make it easy to use, especially when cutting above head and shoulder height. It has a 20mm tooth spacing on the blade and it cuts woodier, more mature growth well. It has a jam function to help prevent the blades getting clogged and stopping and a lock/unlock switch for safety, but the hand guard is thin and feels a little flimsy.
