This is only for those who do not live in apartments, as the Shrub Sculptor aims to make short work (or at least ease your burden) when it comes to keeping those shrubs around your home nice and neat.
Unlike unwieldy hedge trimmers, this shrub sculptor is about the size of a telephone handset to enable precise shaping of bushes. Its 4″ stainless steel rotary blade quickly cuts through branches up to 1/4″ thick, mulches the clippings to 1/10th their original size, and sends them to its integrated receptacle. The receptacle holds up to 1 1/2 gallons of clippings and fits inside the included shoulder bag. The blade is powered by a powerful 7 1/4-volt motor and the lithium-ion rechargeable battery provides up to 35 minutes of trimming after a five-hour charge.
We are alerted to the fact that a five-hour charge is requried for a mere 35 minutes of cutting, which is pretty much the principle of diminishing returns at its very best. Still, $99.95 for a device that helps ease your household chores does sound like a decent option to have at home.
