The main advantage of corded electric models is that they are the cheapest with prices ranging from $25 to $100. They also are quiet, small, lightweight, and provide good power for the price.
The main disadvantage is that they are limited in range since they must be plugged into an outlet. Running an extension cord or several cords can get annoying and you also risk cutting the cord or unplugging it accidentally when in use.
For home owners where you can reach the full extent of your property then a corded electric unit will work perfectly for your needs.
Below we review our top 5 best electric hedge trimmers. Below these electric hedge trimmer reviews we also have a comparison chart so you can easily compare one model versus another.
For residential users who can reach their entire property with an extension cord, then the WORX WG209 is our first choice for a hedge trimmer including gas or cordless models. If you need just a bit more power you can step up to the newer 4.5 amp Worx WG217 for just $10 more.
It is a bit heavier than some other electric models at 6.4 pounds. The 180 degree rotating handle is a nice feature since it lets you adjust the unit to cut cleanly in a comfortable holding position.
Overall we would recommend the Remington RM5124TH for all users looking for an electric hedge trimmer.
Two nice features include a lock-on trigger so you don’t have to continuously pull the trigger and a swiveling handle with 5 positions to adjust to awkward positions. It weighs 6.5 pounds and is well balanced so it is pretty easy to use.
We would recommend the HH2455 for all residential users.
It is also available at HomeDepot.com.
The biggest advantage of the BEHT100 is that it is extemely lightweight at just 4.55 pounds. This makes it a great choice for the elderly.
The BLACK+DECKER BEHT100 is ideal for anyone who only has a few bushes to trim right near their home and thus price and weight are more important than overall power and trimming capability. If you do need just a bit more power you can buy the BEHT150 with a 3.2 amp motor for just $4 more.
The 2200102 is the heaviest electric hedge trimmer on our list at 7.7 pounds. However, it has the longest warranty of 4 years.
