    Aldi Cordless Hedge Trimmer - any good? 25th Mar 12 at 8:07 PM
    Aldi are advertising a cordless hedge trimmer for £19.99. Only appears to be a small handheld type thing, but just wondered if anyone has one and whether it's worth getting. We only have a small hedge in our front garden that needs trimming every now and then and it's only a privet hedge so nothing too heavy duty.

    Anyone had one before?

    It looks similar to the Bosch one I bought few years back, which is useless if the branches is any thincker than 5-10 mm. Would be very interested to know, as we have a small bit of the hedge at the front, and it is a mess!

    Decent pair of hand shears may be better option if it's a small hedge. You get what you pay for and that sounds very cheap which may be an indication of the quality and err looks like a kids toy tbh.
