“AVOID - NOT FIT FOR PURPOSE.”

Written on: 30/09/2014

Bought one of these (3-in-1 Eckman 18v cordless lithium-ion multi tool) plus mini chain saw a couple of years ago. Hedgetrimmer was faulty but promptly replaced by Eckman. I had two batteries but found that both were giving very limited usage time and have eventually stopped working but will not charge up. They have had only short term use, and whilst appreciating the inherent life span issues with Li-ion batteries, this is unacceptable. I e-mailed Eckman and received no reply. In the… Read Full Review

Of course!!!

In any case it is accepted that Li-ion batteries degrade not from first use but immediately after manufacture. Therefore the date of purchase and time since purchase is accademic.

There are plenty of technical papers explaining the chemistry of this available on the web.

Trust me I AM a scientist - in any case this does not negate the abysmal response (or lack off) from Eckman although the call centre manager probably was not technically qualified!

“Poor battery life - poor after sales service”

Written on: 02/07/2014 by OssBoardman (1 review written)

I bought mine two years ago and it worked fine on my 8ft high mixed hedge albeit it is very cumbersome. The motor being located at the "trimmer" end of the unit makes it very heavy and tiring to use. I persevered, but last year when I tried to use it the battery only lasted for a few minutes then died. When put on charge it was showing fully charged after only 15 minutes! I wasn't sure whether it was the battery or the charger which had failed so I e-mailed the suppliers [ My SmartBuy] they… Read Full Review

“Eckman battery hedge trimmer with extra poles”

Written on: 18/11/2013 by Zeb4 (13 reviews written)

I bought this with two extra poles to trim a very high hedge. It worked very well, even though with two extension poles it becomes unwieldy. If you keep the thing more or less vertical, it is manageable. It will cut 1 cm growth easily and bigger if you persevere. At first the battery life was very good - around 30 minutes cutting. After one season, I found the battery was almost useless. Trying to get the supplier and/or the manufacturer to replace it after 1 year and three weeks (1 year… Read Full Review
