DEWALT DCHT820P1 20V Max Hedge Trimmer
DEWALT DCHT820P1 is cordless hedge trimmer. It is part of DeWalt 20V MAX tools and is powered by 20V MAX lithium ion battery. DEWALT DCHT820P1 hedge trimmer can be found with the battery and battery charger, or if you already have 20V MAX batteries and chargers it can be found as 'baretool' only.
Motor is rather strong and provides 2800 spm (strokes per minute). In combination with laser cut, hooked-tooth blade design, unit is able to cut branches up to 3/4" (~19 mm) thick.
Blade is 22" (~56 cm) long, giving the gardener relatively long reach.
Unit weighs 7.5 pounds (~3.4 kg) and it is held with both hands during operation. Design is ergonomic and very easy to use - just be sure to wear protective gloves (recommended) and safety goggles (IMHO, must have!).
DEWALT DCHT820P1 comes with battery charger and 20V MAX 5 Ah lithium ion battery. If you already have 20V MAX DeWalt batteries, go for baretool only.
If you need more of these batteries, buy this hedge trimmer - it comes with the battery and in combination with the tool, it is cheaper than baretool and battery/charger separately.
DEWALT DCHT820P1 hedge trimmer is very easy to use tool, however, to get accustomed to your new gardening tool, it is highly recommended to thoroughly read the manual upon purchase of the tool.
Since this is cordless unit, maintenance is very simple - keep the blade clean and lubricated (again, check manual) and charge the batteries when required. There are no spark plugs, no air or fuel filters, no carburetors etc.
Warranty: 3 year limited warranty, 1 year free service, 90 days money back.
So, if you need a good, sturdy and well designed cordless hedge trimmer, for your home garden, consider this one, especially if you already have DeWalt 20V MAX batteries. Even if you don't have them, this is a nice tool, worth the investment.
