Can you use the battery that comes with this hedge trimmer on the mower?

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
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!

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

For cutting star-jasmine ground cover, is this the right tool, or should I get a long-pole version hedge trimmer?
It would be easier on your back with a long-reach model.

How long does the battery recharge take?
Approx 60mins using the standard charger - you could also buy the GREENWORKS G-MAX 40V LI-ION RAPID BATTERY CHARGER to half this time.

Lesson Learnt

I purchased the Geenworks Hedge trimmer to pair up with the Greenworks outdoor vacuum blower (same battery). The reason being I purchased a cheap hedge cutter a few years ago and regretted it. I cut the power cord twice. The performance betwwen the two units is not comparable. Actually looking forward to the hedge growing now.

An excellent design and very easy and safe to use. I am very pleased with this hedge trimmer, and all of the Greenworks tools I have.

Camellia job

Out of the box the hedge trimmer feels quite solid for the price, blade looked good and sharp. Its first work out was shaping two Camellia trees, there were some fairly thick branches of approx 8-10mm which slowed the trimmer down but still it got through them, it performed better on the lighter brushy stuff with quick sweeping actions. Overall I'm really happy with it and the fact I didn't need to suck back 2 stroke fumes makes it well worth it!

Greenworks Hedge Trimmer G-MAX 40V Li-Ion Skin

Light and easy to use. This cordless model is hugely better than my previous corded trimmer. I do like the ability to change the angle which enables cutting in more difficult areas without having to move my working platform.

This is a great hedge trimmer. I have a 15m driveway with star jasmine, wild jasmine, totara tree, other trees and shrubs and decorative flax plants. It makes short work of it all. The battery seems to last forever and I only have the 2.0AHr model. I haven't need to recharge it during a full garden tidy up. Great service too if you need help maximising its potential.

Robokiller Auckland

surprised how good this works & much lighter than expected - battery 6ah can run this for hours- only disappointment the blade storage shield -its a joke, flimsy at best broke on day 1
