q: How well will it cut through a mature Griselinia hedge?

q: I have been told that Battery operated hedge trimmers are a waste of money they last about 10-15 minutes and the battery is flat . I would get completely frustrated with this if it is fact. I want the truth , not sales pushers answers
a: Run time varies with load (generated by the material being cut), as such it's difficult to quote real-world run times. We'd expect you to get around 30 mins of mixed use on the 2.0Ah battery. Generally we point people in the direction of reviews from other customers (on this and similar Greenworks products) to get an idea of run time and conditions it is being used in, and how that might relate to their situation. If you are cutting a huge amount of material then perhaps petrol is still the best option for you, however with a couple of batteries and the optional fast charger (2.0Ah full charge in approx 30mins), you'll be very surprised how much work you get through!

q: Can it trim bamboo hedges( 1-2cm diameter smaller bamboo)?
a: We wouldn't recommend it, it's a bit of a tricky one. Really you'll need to lop it.

q: For cutting star-jasmine ground cover, is this the right tool, or should I get a long-pole version hedge trimmer?
a: It would be easier on your back with a long-reach model.
By Trade Tested on February 5, 2020
0 votes
q: How long does the battery recharge take?
a: Approx 60mins using the standard charger - you could also buy the GREENWORKS G-MAX 40V LI-ION RAPID BATTERY CHARGER to half this time.

q: Hey, is there an option to lengthen the blade? Ideally I’d love about 90cm.

I have purchased numerous Green Works items over the last year or two, being a mower, hedge trimmer, pole saw, weed trimmer and blower. I highly recommend these items.

I have found the Greenworks Hedge Trimmer to be easy to use with a powerful, long-lasting battery. It has made hedge trimming easy, fast and far more enjoyable than using the old style hedge clippers.

I brought this as going off the reviews it was a great product, I received this & used it for not even half an hour & the blades jammed inside the unit, apparently it couldn't be repaired which was good as I had lost trust in this product after this had happened :( which was disappointing. I won't be buying any of the GreenWorks products again.

Really lightweight to use, excellent to trim bushes, trees, hedges, rosebushes, into shapes, but not larger branches, would need a saw or chainsaw. I was able to use this for about 4 hours straight without any power cords. Really easy to use, strong trimmer. Brilliant!!!

After years of using hedgeclippers and the COVID lockdown approaching I thought it would be nice to treat myself and my garden with a professional hedge cutter....and I weren't disappointed. I already had the battery, it went straight from the box into action, really easy to use. Did a really professional job on hedges and shrubs. Love it! Highly recommend Greenworks, great tools.

I had high hopes for this hedge trimmer, The weight is great. The batteries charge quickly and last a good amount of time but I was expecting the trimmer to have a bit more gruntiness. Copes well with the light stuff but no good for slightly heavier branches in the hedge. Bit disappointed really for the cost.

While not having the power of a petrol machine the battery supplies enough to do a more than useful job and lasts long enough to satisfy it's elderly user. A tidy machine all around.

Greenworks 40 volt hedge trimmer

about 1 year ago


Having received the new hedge trimmer I set to attacking my long hedge. The first thing I noticed is that with the longer bar that I could reach and successfully cut right across the top to my neighbours side. This machine has an amazing cutting capacity and the battery life is amazingly long. I trimmed the whole hedge on its first charge. It is much lighter to handle and on my hedge it did not hesitate to cut everything in its path. For sure this is a rechargeable garden power tool that destroys all the moths about poor performance and short battery life that one hears about rechargeables. I was thinking about buying a spare battery but now realise that I don't need one. A great tool and I am very happy with my purchase.

Good sized cutting blade. Seems grunty enough to get through most hedges. The rotating handle makes it easy to cut vertically. Can get through a decent amount of hedging on a fully charged battery.

The G-Max 40V was delivered by courier just a few weeks ago. I have used it once or twice and have found it to be easy to use, not to heavy, making a quick and easy job of trimming my hedges.

Due to health issues can only work for a few minutes at a time. Great to be able to go out and take my time without having to spend half the day trying to start a petrol one.

Greenworks hedge trimmer, blower and mower

about 1 year ago


We first purchased the 460mm G Max mower and a G Max blower. The mower performs very well, don't expect a very low shave but it does the job impressively. We bought this because we were sick of starting petrol motors along with all the fumes. It works far better than I expected. The blower is amazing-especially so for a battery powered machine. Next purchase was the G Max 40v hedge trimmer. This is a seriously grunty machine, again, an amazing surprise for battery power. It's a bit heavy but the fantastic convenience of no extension leads or petrol engine means you can just pop out when you like and do 10 minutes or so. Great for a large garden like ours. We have 1 battery to power them all.

Robokiller Auckland

Amazing power with the 40V

about 1 year ago


Makes light work of light and medium sized hedges. 2kwhr battery gives a good amount of work time - I needed a rest before it expired. Not sure if it will be as impressive when the blades are less sharp and how easy it will be to sharpen again.

This is a huge improvement on petrol powered hedge cutters. No more mixing fuel, everything done at the flick of a switch and plenty of power. One charge of the battery lasts a long time.

So convenient, great cutting!

I got tired of having having to get out the long power cable then untangle it on my 230v trimmer so decided to get a battery one with some nervousness. I was really pleased, I think it actually cuts better than my old one. The balance is better and the battery seems to last forever. it is also great to not have the 'little accidents' with the long lead!

I have a Hebe hedge that my last hedge trimmer which was electric, just would not cut. The Greenworks hedge trimmer ripped through it, was light to handle and I was seriously impressed. Highly recommend this product. I have since bought the Greenworks line trimmer and also the blower vac. They all work off the same battery.

This hedge trimmer is top value and so easy to use. It cut through my hedges like butter compared to my old one, even the more woody bits. I used it for about an hour and the battery didn't run out of power in that time. I'm very pleased with my purchase.
