“The Black & Decker GT524 is good for longer hedges. ...”

Written on: 08/06/2008 by W Sunman (1 review written)

Good Points
It requires both hands to operate the on switch, so it is hard to cut your fingers off. It is easy to handle, it is long and powerful so it can be used to cut back a wide and overgrown hedge.

Bad Points
Maintaining pressure on the two mains switches can be a bit of a strain. The mains cable is a bit short, so an extension lead is mandatory if you have a long hedge.

General Comments
The Black & Decker GT524 is good for longer hedges. Needs a cable 'break' near the trimmer as in previous B&D models. If you cut the mains cable near the trimmer, you need to dismantle the whole trimmer to change the cable. Better to buy a proper weatherproofcable 'break' and insert it near the trimmer if this happens then. Mine has stopped working after I dismantled it.
