Questions and answers

q: I see you also sell a 4.0Ah battery separately. Can that battery also be used with the G-Max range including this long reach trimmer? And can the 4.0 Ah battery be charged on the same charger as the 2.0? I presume the 4.0 gives longer running time?
a: Yes correct it has double the capacity. These batteries are interchangeable across all the G-MAX 40V tools (including charger).

GreenWorks Long Reach Hedge Trimmer G-MAX 40V Li-Ion

about 1 month ago


I purchased this addition to my GreenWorks Hedge Trimmer It is really great for me at age 71 to be able to stand on the ground to operate this very capable addition it has all the reach I need for our trees and hedges with heaps of power and real sharp cutting blade.

Gardener Northland

Good machine but heavy and needs a shoulder strap

about 1 month ago


This is a good product, but I wish the manufacturers would listen to their consumers - I see others have recommended a shoulder strap. The trimmer is heavy and can only be used in short bursts before you have to rest - a shoulder strap would assist in this regard and provide stability. Get onto it GreenWorks!!

Very please with the product. The ability to change the blade angle is a plus. Cuts well but is a little heavy when reaching out. Maybe a shoulder strap would help.

Light yet powerful

Light yet powerful, this trimmer is a pleasure to use on our hedges. Battery lasts the whole job and is so much more convenient than the petrol-engine trimmer I've been using for the last 10 years.

On opening the box I found a quality product well packed. The trimmer met my expectations and I was very pleased with the Battery life. Some elderly persons may find the weight an issue when using at its full extent, although with practice the battery makes it reasonably well balanced.

Fred Wellington

Very effective

I have become a fan of the 40V garden tool range. The hedge trimmer has a great reach and the varied angle cutting is a great bonus when cutting from ground level.

We are really delighted with this trimmer. It is very sturdy and chops off the tops of the hedge no problem. It is also easy to handle, not too heavy.

A little unwieldy

The trimmer cuts well but it would be better if the Long reach was adjustable so that close bushes can be trimmed easily as well

Mike D Lower Hutt

Very long reach trimmer

8 months ago


This is the second one purchased and it is much longer reach than the first bought over a year ago. The head is the same but all else is different. I suits my purposes better being a longer reach, however you won't be doing any close up work with it.

Shu Canterbury

Fantastic for the home gardener!!

Bought this great trimmer to assist in keeping a number of trees and hedges under control around our property. Easy to use, cuts and trims exceptionally well and battery life is very good. Highly recommend this excellent product!

Works well. Using instead of a line trimmer (doesn't throw stuff). Also compliments the pole saw (cuts smaller stuff).

great trimmer but found the blades got blunt quickly and i was only on a thin hedge with no thick branches

Graeme M Bay of Plenty

great tool for those hedges

Joins the other Greenworks tools I have, easy to use and battery last quite a while.

Dmitry Auckland

Good but ...

9 months ago


Have this for nearly a year. Quite like the product, however, battery last for nearly 10 minutes! Just 10 minutes!.. So, it's good when you need to reach higher places and don't want to use a ladder. In other cases I still use old trimmer with a cord. Or do 10 minutes job, put the battery to charge, do something else, repeat 10 minutes job, and do the cycle again... Do I recommend? Not sure. Thinking to buy a spare battery (so I can do 20-minutes jobs :)) but this is not cheap. My another concern is how long these batteries will last before die...

GB Waikino

So easy to use!

9 months ago


I had a petrol powered hedge trimmer and couldn't use it because it was just too heavy. So I bought this and wow what a difference. It chomps through just about anything and is so light to carry and easy to operate. Value for money - no doubt. This is an outstanding piece of garden equipment which I highly recommend. It is the fifth piece of equipment I have purchased from Trade Tested and every one of them has been an excellent buy. Well done Trade Tested.

Great unit strong and powerful. Gets a little heavy after a while so strongly suggest using a strap to support. Also works with the 4 A/h battery although you've ready for a beer after draining the 2 A/h battery.

The Long Reach Hedge trimmer was the best birthday present I bought for myself. It saves me trying to stand on a ladder to cut the top of my Ivy on the fence a very worthwhile purchase.

Andrew Waikato


about 1 year ago


Using the machine is very easy and allows for a much better reach. The battery lasted about 20-minutes which probably isn't long enough but recharging was very quick. A second battery would be a good option.

Got but has shortcomings

about 1 year ago


I bought the hedge trimmer in addition to the pole saw I already have, so I know the brand. It is light and works pretty well, but it is a bit too short and the brackets the work the extension part are a bit iffy and can slip. Overall, not bad but could be better.

Trebar Canterbury

Hedge Trimmer

about 1 year ago


This worked well. Cut nicely and I was able to cut top of high hedge without a ladder. The cutting blade connection to handle was I thought the most fragile part but so far has caused no problems. Getting over my veggy garden to cut sides was easy with the extension. Neighbour wants to borrow and I need a beer so no worries there.

Mike Hawke's Bay

The hedge trimmer works really well. Plenty of reach and power. The battery time is excellent.

Tim Otago

Makes ladder work easier

about 1 year ago


Easy to use and good battery life. Much better balanced than other makes I have tried. Would be a little better with more extension but this would probably be to the detriment of balance and therefore more awkward to manoeuvre.

Certainly value for money. Light with good battery life. Head is easily adjustable as is pole length.

Mark Wellington

Hedges Beware!

about 1 year ago


This is a good gardening tool. It’s important to remember that it’s not a chainsaw, and that it will only give you a certain reach – so DO NOT over-extend yourself! I have found it more than adequate for doing the job for which it is designed. The 40V battery life is excellent – and as others has mentioned, it tends to outlast the user for most jobs. And I also agree that the weight of the battery provides a good counter-balance to the blade end, which makes for easier handling and use.

Charles Auckland

GreenWorks Long Reach Hedge Trimmer G-MAX 40V Li-Ion

about 1 year ago


Had great reach, but seemed a little flimsy. Possibly the plastic makeup needs to be more robust. A lot of twist when it is fully extended. It is also very heavy with the motor being at the end. Fatigue is an issue after 20 odd minutes of holding this puppy up.

Peter Bay of Plenty

Nearly Great

about 1 year ago


My only comment that is not positive, is that it needs a more grunty battery and a longer reach by about 30cm.

Great trimmer for the price, the head moves around abit when the shaft is fully extended, but not a huge issue. Trimmer works okay, battery has good life. Good value for money.

Peter Auckland

Happy Customer

about 1 year ago


We were looking around for a hedge trimmer that 1. would reach to the top of our trees. 2. angled so we could square the top off. 3. be cost affected. 4. environmentally friendly. we went to a few well known branded companies but the range was either very small, highly priced or too heavy. We had recently bought the Atom Ladder from Trade Tested and therefore looked online to see what was on offer. As we were picking up the ladder we had the chance to see the Long Reach Hedge Trimmer at the showrooms and bought it. Well, it was out of stock so this told us that this was a pretty popular machine. The great thing was that this was battery powered and could be used on any further Greenworks products we might buy in the future. the cost was well within our budget. On the day we picked it up two other happy clients were picking up the same product and we had stories to tell of how we use to trim our hedges and trees. The job is done in a 10th of the time as coupled with the Atom Ladder it is certainly a win win situation for us. Oh and did I say that the staff at Trade Tested are amazing?

Works well & not too heavy. I am pleased although I am not able to reach the middle of the top of my camellia hedge from the ground which is the reason I purchased this model. A miscalculation on my part because of the depth of the hedge. I will need to reduce the hedge height.

Jim Manawatu

Excellent Hedge Trimmer

over 2 years ago


Cuts well & blades look well constructed. Note that the blade end is bit heavier than petrol models because the motor is at that end. I find that the 4Ah battery makes the balance a bit better because of the extra weight at the rear.

I needed an extended hedge trimmer to top light branches in a neighbouring tree. This tool is light and efficient. Does exactly what we needed at a reasonable price.

A great product which is a great deal lighter than the Husqvarna I was using and it has yet to run out of energy and a lot cheaper than other battery models
