“my farther just bought one of these,but it wont work...”

Written on: 05/12/2009

my farther just bought one of these,but it wont work the top trigger has to be pulled so hard to make it work makeing it impossible to use,and the only way to get it to run is to pull the trigger at the far edge as tight as you can pushing it further than it is ment to,and even if it is faulty they want you to pay £10 to return it,my final conclusion is it is a heap of cheap chinese rubish and not wouldent have one if it was free… Read Full Review

“I couldn't disagree more with the two reviews already...”

Written on: 17/11/2009

I couldn't disagree more with the two reviews already left for the Eckman hedge trimmer.

I can only assume that these chaps were unfortunate enough to receive a faulty unit (which does happen from time-to-time, no matter what you buy and where you buy it from), as what they are describing seems a million miles away from what I received and what I've been using for the past 6 months or so.

First things first; this hedge trimmer IS heavy and is probably not suitable for elderly people. But once… Read Full Review

“Having just read JHFC's review, I could just write...”

Written on: 12/08/2009

Having just read JHFC's review, I could just write "Ditto" as I doubt I can match his eloquence in describing rubbish. But..............
I cannot even give it any good points as when the cutter (hahaha) arrived I was away and so missed the 14 day returns period.
I did expect the machine (hahaha) to be somewhat top heavy with the motor being at the top. What I wasn't prepared for though was the fact that the blades would not cut any type of vegetation. I tried the Eckman Long-Reach Electric… Read Full Review

“If you have found this review as a result of looking...”

Written on: 18/06/2009 by JHFC (2 reviews written)

If you have found this review as a result of looking around to see if these eckman long reach hedge trimmers are any good, then you're in luck. I'm just about to save you £90.

I bought mine from www.technologyinthehome.com and read through the reviews on their site to make sure I wasn't going to end up with a white elephant. It was mentioned a number of times that this hedge trimmer is quite heavy, and I did note the specified weight, but decided that it shouldn't be a problem. That was only… Read Full Review

I was wondering why every advert for a used one of these on eBay proudly prounces "only used once". And now I know. Thanks JHFC, saved me a whole load of wasted time and money!

Written on: 03/07/2013

So funny! This has made me cry laughing and it's all true! I bought one for my Dad who couldn't use it so my husband tried and managed to hack a few bushes before it packed up. Unfortunately it was a long time after the purchase and we missed out on warranty. We were going to try to get it fixed but its going to the dump tomorrow after reading these reviews !

What a thoroughly entertaining, but also enlightening review. I was going to purchase one of these 'machines', however this and the other comments on this site have saved the cash from being hoovered out of my wallet and subsequently spent on what appears to be complete rubbish. And allegedly dangerous rubbish at that.

Thanks very much for this very eloquent and hilarious review. It was invaluable to me for 2 reasons, i.e. it saved me £90 and gave me the best laugh I've had in years. I really hope JHFC comments on some other products.

Guest's Response to JHFC's Review

Written on: 17/06/2011

Sadly, we didn't read any reviews before buying as we were so excited to be able to get a reasonably priced trimmer which would enable us to cut the top of our hawthorn hedge without dangling off a set of step ladders.
All that is said about this thing is true....as heavy as a Sherman tank and as weak as a kitten when faced with a twig to cut!! After just a few minutes use and 2 or 3 chopped off leaves, my husband sank to the ground, weakened by the effort required to keep the triimmer upright....no wonder the instructions warn you to keep anything breathing well out of the way!! I decided that we would do best to cut our losses, spend £10 to return the thing (which seems a bit cheeky when the trimmer is not fit for purpose and should not be available to buy) and get a refund. When speaking to the girl at T2Direct, she suggested that it might be a little heavy if we were elderly (!!) but surely these are the people it is meant to help.....and what if I tried to use it??? (A 9 stone female!). This company must be fully aware of the problems yet they insist on selling it....Here's hoping that some TV reporter buys it and then we can have some fun watching him demonstrating it to a massive audience!!
