The quik lok trimmer has a 20" blade, this is 24". The primary difference is overall tool length: for my small boxwoods I'd prefer this tool's maneuverability but the quik lok would eliminate my neighbor's need for a ladder.

For my suburban house I use the gen II blower most often to tidy-up the driveway, clean after mowing, light leaf clean-up, and quick car clean-up (especially when we had the minivan: straight-through both sliding doors). My wife wasn't always able to start a gas blower but she will use it.

String trimmer at every mowing. (I have the pre-quik lok).

This hedge trimmer 2-4x annually. It cuts cleanly and quickly; it's a great tool. My wife's less likely to use this vs. corded because it's heavier. If you're using a gas trimmer (large hedges or far-away from the house) it's a great alternative.

It probably only saves ~10 minutes for me at each use to not need to run an extension cord but I am more likely to use it for a quick trim. And no more need to run a "loss lead" sacrificial cord.

It runs fine on a 2Ah battery and gives plenty enough runtime for me to finish. (maybe ~30 minutes+?). I don't know if the extra weight of the 5 Ah is necessary but with it I fully believe a 2+ hour runtime.
Yeah it seems weird someone would want hedge trimmers this time of the year considering everything is blooming and growing at a rapid rate right now?
Milwaukee makes some of the best power tools you can buy.

Works great for those "social distancing" haircuts, too. nod

doesn't getting their quik lok version make more sense?

The quick lok version will be on a longer pole and I would think that is only better for really tall bushes. I wonder how that maneuvers for regular sized bushes.

I've had this regular hedge version for over a year and it beats my old corded B&D versions by a mile. Really impressed with it for my bushes that are all under 6ft.

CPOoutlets has this same deal, but you could also get a 6 pack charger (if you want the free gift with a higher flip value).

Looks like HD is also offering the six pack charger for the same $169 with hedger. CPO though offering the blower and six pack or battery for $159.

I have this trimmer and really like it. I almost didn't buy it because it was heavier than the other display models and also felt off balance. When I took it home and put my 5 or 9ah battery in, it's overall balance felt much better. Overall it does a great job. Getting a free battery for the same price I paid for my bare tool is a great deal.

What about versus the Ego version? I was thinking of getting that as a bare tool since I have the mower already.

This thing is awesome, been using during quarantine a lot. I use with a 9.0 battery and it chops up everything I throw at it. This deal is ok.

Thanks for posting. Took 2+ hours to do some mauling to one damn hedge I have earlier today. Saw this and decided on it instead of the $129 deal at Lowes for the 40w kobalt with battery
