Little Wonder 2420 vs. B&D HH2450 - Hedge Trimmers

I've been looking for an electric hedge trimmer for the 150-foot long, 8-foot tall, 6-foot wide cedar hedge bordering one side of my property. I need power and at least a 24" bar. I like Stihl in general but I started reading about the Little Wonder hedge trimmers and became interested in those, despite the higher price. Then I stumbled upon the Black and Decker HH2450 (Hedge Hog) that sells for under $70 including shipping. What surprised me was that everybody raved up and down about how wonderful these things were. I even found a serious review site that rated the B&D HH2450 number one followed by the Little Wonder 2420. How can this possibly be? I would prefer to purchase "the last hedge trimmer I'll ever need". But this B&D unit seems incredibly popular at 1/5 of the price. Is the B&D unit really that good? Or will it burn out after a year or two? People say it cuts thru tough hedges like butter. Is it really up to par with Little Wonder?

Definitely not. The Hedge Hog is o.k. for light consumer use but the Little Wonder is the tool of choice for the pros and rental yards.Of course the B&D will get more reviews because of the numbers. Most who use them don't know there are better products available and wouldn't pay the price if they did.

Anything made by Little Wonder is going to be top quality. And probably heavier. So keep that in mind when thinking about extending your arms over a wide hedge.

It took me some time but I gathered up all my strength and ordered a Little Wonder from my local tool rental place. When I buy things like this, I try to buy quality and durability. Something that I won't have to replace ever again.
