In the competition to the CST00012 hedge trimmer by Earthwise, there comes the Black & Decker NST2118 hedge trimmer. While the Earthwise model has the upper hand in terms of pricing with the NST2118 priced at about $100, the Black & Decker model has the upper hand in terms of performance. It comes with the PowerDrive Transmission that ensures a smooth and powerful trimming and cutting experience even through the hardest of debris, bushes, and hedges.

Thus, the additional cost of the Black & Decker model brings in greater added features as well, and of course, with the brand name of Black & Decker attached, people would prefer to go with NST2118 out of the two.
Apart from most of the positive customer responses, there have also been some cons attached to the Earthwise hedge trimmers. While some have reported them to be less powerful as compared to other branded hedge trimmers available within the same budget, some others have criticized the blades to be ineffective when it comes to cutting through the tough debris. In addition, there is a great vibration feeling in the hands during and after the cutting task is undertaken. Also, the trimmers work on NiCad batteries and not the lithium-ion batteries; the latter being the latest technology used by most of the currently branded hedge trimmers.
