“Blade not up to the job!”

Written on: 25/08/2015 by MarkFouracre (1 review written)

Bought this just under 2 years ago. Worked fine for first three uses on my 20ft light hedge but blades became totally blunt after that. I contacted Gtech customer services who suggested I get them sharpened! I sent a further e-mail to them in which I made the point that I had previously owned a Black & Decker corded cutter for 15 years and had not needed to resort to this and felt that their blades were not fit for purpose. They have not had the decency to reply. It seems their customer care… Read Full Review

“Sub Standard Product”

Written on: 12/08/2015

Bought this product on the basis that it was cordless and lightweight. Worked ok to start with last summer but when I came to use it this summer the battery would not charge. The battery is in built so you can't buy a replacement. Don't buy a cordless device unless you can replace the battery. Land fill awaits… Read Full Review

“Not up to the job”

Written on: 01/08/2015 by Jubags (1 review written)

We purchased this item last week direct from gtech based on the weight and it being cordless. On a privet hedge that was just sparsely grown it was fine but to trim a conifer hedge the cutter was useless and we had to "down tools" halfway. The battery was fully charged. Also the handle did not increase as much as we hoped. I have arranged for it to be returned and have to pay £10.00 for the privilege. I wouldn't recommend this product… Read Full Review

“Very good trimmer”

Written on: 03/04/2015 by mattyboy67 (1 review written)

We bought this for mum because she has arthritis in her hands, and thus couldn't manage one of the larger heavy trimmers available on the market. This HT04 unit is quite light and easy to handle for the older generation, and she manages to get a pretty good trim done on the hedges with it. One thing I would say is that the batter life is pretty poor on this model, we have had replacement battery's but none of them seem to hold their charge. We got around this by having a few stocked up and… Read Full Review

“Heap of Junk from Land of the Rising Sun!”

Written on: 19/09/2014 by Jadyny142 (1 review written)

Used the Gtech HT04 5 times and it refused to cut because the cutting blade had quite clearly gone out of sync! Instead of cutting the hedge, it just ripped and jammed on it? Product just over 12 months old (but only just!), and considering how little use it had, this is really bad. Also, it is very tiring to use at full stretch since there is no harness option. Only thing good about it was the battery life was excellent - but not much use if it didn't cut, eh? I IMPLORE YOU - DO NOT BUY… Read Full Review

“Gtech HT04 Cordless Hedge Trimmer”

Written on: 23/08/2013

The extended length is too short to be consider as long reach. It was cumbersome to use especially the control switches to start. The width of my hand could not stretch far enough for these control causing pain on my thumb and wrist otherwise a good tool for small garden, short hedges. … Read Full Review

“CORDLESS HEDGE TRIMMER AND BRANCH LOPPER”

Written on: 24/07/2013 by mnimodo (5 reviews written)

This item was advertised in the Mail on Saturday. I spent a couple of days dithering and took the plunge and ordered the item. They told me it would take upto five days delivery instead of the next day as advertised. I pleaded with them and lo and behold it arrived next day. I have only used the hedge cutter up to now and it was a joy to use.The blade is a doddle to insert and remove. If I was to introduce a slight negative it is the switches are a bit strong and if you have a weak grip it may… Read Full Review

Geofferina's Response to mnimodo's Review

Strongly disagree with the 5 star rating. I found the Gtech HT04 hedge trimmer to be totally useless upon tackling anything more than privet hedging. It really struggles when faced with leylandi for example and can best be described as 'useful for the finishing touches of an already completed hedge' Agree
with this reviewer about switches - you have to have very muscular fingers in order to operate the Gtech HT04!

Sorry if you think I misled you , but I did use it on a privet hedge.
I still think it is well worth the money after using it for about twelve month

Fair enough. You didn't mislead me by the way - how we're you to know what the Gtech HT04 was like on leylandi, if you use it solely for cutting a privet hedge? Glad you are happy with it. The cutting blade just went out of sync on mine and ripped, rather than cut the leylandi. This is the reason I am totally unhappy with this product -especially after only 5 or 6 times of use!
