Earthwise CHT10122 22-Inch 18-Volt Cordless Hedge Trimmer
If you want the least expensive full sized hedge trimmer on this list, but still get solid performance, choose the Earthwise CHT10122 22-Inch 18-Volt Cordless Hedge Trimmer. This is the only Energy Star rated trimmer here, so if you are eco-conscious, this might be the only trimmer for you.
The price is low-ball because it uses an older style NiCad 18 volt battery, but it will give about 25 minutes of run time per charge. It will cut through 5/8 inch twigs, and has rubber grips for a secure holding power in your hands. Although it’s short on features, the low price and the 22 inch double sided blade is perfect for people on a budget and those smaller hedges or bushes.
