It starts out expensive because of the battery and charger. Added tools without batteries and chargers are reasonable. It is a new product this year. I am almost done with the hedges, and still have a bit more than 50% of the battery left (14 yew bushes, 11 are done). While a bit heavier than my old Black & Decker corded trimmers, you do not worry about cutting the cord by accident. They also have a "hedge sweep" on top of the blades that keeps the clippings in front so they do not stay on the bush requiring you to rake them off after. It is a simple add on that works quite well.
