      Dangerous & Badly made.

      I bought this hedge trimmer from Argos twice now. The first one I bought was just over a year ago and I was using is to take down some hedges at the back of my garden. After about 30 minutes the cable blew and snapped in half. I wish this was because I got it caught in the blade but unfortunately no it wasn't. The cable used seemed to not be able to handle the amount of power running through it. I personally thought this was a massive shame because the price was reasonable and I had read good reviews and recommendations via the Argos website.

      I took it back and got my full refund as I was slightly concerned about using another one of the same. However, I thought this may have just been a manufacturing fault on that particular unit and decided to purchase another one and hope for the best. When I got it home I was doing the same again and removing some of the hedges from the back (just so you know I was going through any branches or large sticks).

      Shortly after starting to my unwitting surprise the same happened again... In the same place on the cable. When taking further inspection into the cable I could see it had all burnt and was smoking slightly. The concern for me is if this happened to anyone else someone could get injured. I did notify the manufacturer of the issue and hopefully it has been resolved.

      In my personal opinion I would try to prevent anyone from getting one of these due to the danger, but in all honesty. It could have just been a bad batch.
