American Gardener Grass Shear Good for Quick Yard Work
I've found plenty of uses for my American Gardener Grass Shear but I have to limit what work gets done.
One of those tools I recently purchased was the American Gardener Cordless Grass Shear (Model #GS48) and, while I've found it handy with quick clean ups, it isn't very reliable when I have a job that is going to take more than a half hour to finish.
The thing I like about the Cordless Grass Shear is it is small enough where I can hold it in one hand. That makes it easy to maneuver when I'm trimming weeds around my house or around the trees and in between the flowers in front of my house.
The Grass Shear is surprisingly strong. Not only have I used it on grass and weeds, I have used it to trim some small branches from my trees and the shrub on the west side of the house. The four-inch blades cut right through those things like they were butter. It's definitely less work than trying to do something like that by hand and less bulky than my regular hedge clippers.
The fact it's cordless is also a big plus for me. I only have one electric outlet outside my home and, if I had to keep the Grass Shear plugged in, I would need a very long extension cord to get all my work done, especially since some of the work is on the other side of my half-acre lawn.
My only real pet peeve about the American Gardener Grass Shear is the fact it doesn't hold a charge long. According to what I read prior to purchasing it, the battery only has about 40 minutes worth of juice in it. After using it, I learned it is actually only about 25-30 minutes. I'm not sure how good that is compared to similar products, but it isn't good enough to get all my work done at once. I typically have to plug it back in to charge and finish my yard work later.
If you have a lot of yard work, this is definitely a tool you will want to have charging somewhere; at least for any quick work you may have to do. But, for larger jobs, you may want to have another tool available to finish the job because the American Gardener Grass Shear just isn't designed to do that.
