The gas power is the way to go! For its price range the Poulan Pro PP2822 is pretty unbeatable. The other gas brands are easily 50%-100% more expensive and I have heard that warranty service is pretty touch and go with any of them.

It cuts like a hot knife through butter on pretty much everything I threw at it, even 3/8″ thick branches on my tree . The motor runs as you would expect with some premix and a couple primer pumps, pull the rope and youre off to cut!The only thing is weight. I don’t know that other instruments of the same capacity are much lighter, but compared to the electric ones, this one will take some getting used to for the casual landscaper. Where it fails in weight, it makes up for in time spent actually working.

I already own gas powered hedge trimmers and purchased this one for a backup. Our entire yard is ‘fenced’ with thick, tall heavy hedges. So we get a LOT of use from our hedge trimmers.
First of all, these trimmers arrived completely assembled and ready to use out of the box. The box is shaped to the trimmers, so no huge bulky box to dispose of. They have a nice guard covering the blades, which I appreciate so that, when stored, you don’t accidentally slice open an appendage accidentally while reaching around it. The plug is a two prong. So you don’t need a three prong extension cord.
Pros:
1. These hedge trimmers are very lightweight. This feature makes me like these over my gas powered ones because our bushes are tall and I don’t like holding the heavier gas powered ones over my head or for a long period of time.
2. They are very sharp and sliced right through our thick hedges like butter.
3. They are nice looking and easy to use and store.
4. There is a safety bar, like a lawn mower has, so if you drop them, they stop immediately.
Cons:
1. They require an extension cord, which you must purchase separately. I rocemmend buying a long one for ease of use.
2. When you hold the trimmers up higher, the cord tends to fall off, unplugging the machine. I recommend a strip of duct tape to keep the two attached.
Overall, these are very nice hedge trimmers, especially for the price. I would certainly recommend to a friend.
