I have been using this tool for the last couple of weeks cutting down hundreds of iris, daylilys, peonys etc. It is wonderful. I use the grass blade and it has made fall cleanup so much easier.
I purchased this to trim the Asian Jasmine along my walkway. It was easy to use and a big time saver until the cam drive in the shear broke after the 5th time that I used it. The hedge trimmer is only strong enough for fresh new growth. Poor quality construction. So save your money and purchase the Grass Shears #60P, I am very happy with them.
