Good value for the money. Obviously not very powerful but good enough for the hedges and easy to use.

Just what I needed

Lightweight compact and long lasting battery makes this cordless trimmer ideal for small to medium sized bushes. Battery life has lasted up to 2 hours and charges quickly. Lightweight design doesn't put much burden on your arms nor back and would suit all ages. Would recommend for small to medium hedges/bushes

What oil do you use for the blades

I wondered what oil you would use to keep the blades sharp on the hedgetrimmer or other gardening items like shears

Hi Moragm,

I have looked into this for you and can confirm that the regular engine lubricate oil is fine to use with this product.

I hope this helps!
Thank you for using Argos Q&A


I use spray grease as it's easily applied, gets into the blades and then sets quite thick


Rightly or wrongly I just use car engine oil. If it protects/lubricates an engine I am sure it will not harm the blade.


how many batteries are supplied with the hedge trimmer

1 Answer

Hi there,

This comes with 1 battery.

Thanks for using Argos Q&A.

Battery Number.

Is the battery for this hedge trimmer the same as the battery for the grass trimmer - ABP118LZ (battery no.). I already have the grass trimmer so if it is the same, I can use it as a spare as the hedge trimmer is used less regularly the grass trimmer and vice versa if necessary, giving me longer cutting time.

Hi Greyrider,

Yes, the ABP118LZ battery can be used for both this Qualcast CHT18LA1 Cordless Hedge Trimmer and Qualcast grass trimmer.

I hope this helps!
