Hello my name is Karen and these are my Garden Groom reviews that I have made. The reason why I wanted to share my experience with the Garden Groom is because it has been an amazing help in my garden.
When I first heard about the Garden Groom trimmer I thought it was a very good idea to get it. There are many things that I like about my Garden Groom pro trimmer. The main thing that I like a lot about this hedge trimmer is that it is very lightweight and easy to use. Because it only weighs about five pounds overall it is very easy to maneuver and control around the hedges.
Because it is so lightweight my back no longer hurts me to clip the hedges or to trim up around my garden. Another thing I like a lot about the Garden Groom hedge trimmer is that sucks up all the trimmings as I cut. With any other trimmer I would cut off what I wanted to and it would fall on to the ground or into the bush itself. Then after finishing I would have to shake the bush to get the rest of the clippings out.
After that I would need to rake up all of the clippings and put them into a black back to dispose of. I always disliked having to crouch over and use the rake as a shovel against my foot to be able to scoop up the clippings. Or when the limbs were long and awkward it would be difficult to put into the bag. Then after putting those into the bag they would rip the bag. It was a very big hassle for me.
The Garden Groom has a capturer that holds all the clippings. First it dices the limb into tiny small pieces then it vacuums it up into its holding container. To dispose of the clippings all I have to do is unclip the container and dump it into the trash. This is much easier than trying to bag it.
The blade has a special cover over it so it’s impossible to cut the power cable. I did that once with an old trimmer that I had. It was a very scary experience and I do not wish to repeat it. Only the limbs that you want to cut go into where the blade is to be diced up into tiny pieces.
Another thing I love about it is another safety feature it has. It has three levers on it to make it run. On the back handle there is a lever for either hand to hold onto so it triggers the blade to spin. The blade will not spin unless one of the other two levers is pulled as well. There is a handle that goes over the top of the machine and has levers on either side so it doesn’t matter which hand I use. If at least two levers are not pulled it won’t run the blade.
This is reassuring to me that my hand won’t get cut if I try to reach into the bush for anything and accidently move the trimmer. I would like to keep all of my fingers intact.
Overall the Garden Groom is a very effective and lightweight cutter. I love it and use it often.
