Our Opinion

Most often we choose the right tool for the wrong use, choosing the right tool for the right job is critical for you to get value for your money. Fiskars 23 Inch PowerGear Hedge Shears (9189.) is great for manual edge trimming at home. This might not be the very best for heavy works only that we can recommend Fiskars 32-Inch PowerGear Bypass Lopper which can give you up to 2 inches cutting diameter.
This tool may be pricier than other hedge shears, but it is well worth the extra money, especially if you do a lot of your own manual hedge-trimming. Because of the “power gear” feature, it requires very little effort to cut through even very thick hedge branches. The comfortable design and the fact that the shears do most of the work for you make this a great item.
