  • Trimmers for plants have a compact and lightweight design

Cutting-Edge (Literally)

You’d be forgiven for thinking that the absence of a cord would mean a compromise on power. Not in the case of our good friend, the DCHT820B. This garden warrior boasts high output motor and laser-cut, hooked-tooth blades designed for clean, fast cuts on branches up to 3/4 of an inch thick. Yes, you read that right, 3/4 of an inch! This machine laughs in the face of thick branches.

Ergonomics? It’s Got It!

You might ask, “But isn’t this monster of a tool going to be heavy?” DEWALT thought of that. The DCHT820B is compact and lightweight, clocking in at 7.5 lbs. It’s designed with a comfortable grip and excellent weight distribution, which means less fatigue for you, more fear for those hedges.

How Does It Hold Up?

A crucial point of any power tool is the stamina. Well, you’ll be pleased to hear that DEWALT doesn’t disappoint. The battery life on the DCHT820B is outstanding. While it obviously varies with the intensity of the work, many users report being able to trim for hours on a single charge. And when it does run out of juice, you can swap the battery with another from the 20V MAX system. It’s a win-win situation.

The Downsides

As with any fair and balanced review, we must mention the cons. For one, the DCHT820B doesn’t come with a battery or charger included in the standard package, so you will need to purchase them separately if you don’t already have them. It’s like getting a toy on Christmas, only to realize the batteries are sold separately – but with less holiday cheer.

Secondly, while its weight is impressive for its power, if you have significant amounts of tall hedges to tackle, it may get heavy after a while. But remember, with great power comes great…weight?
