The main selling points of the Skil 20V Shear and Shrub revolves around its precision and its ease of use. As far as precision goes, the shear attachment provides a slow, more methodical approach to trimming the grass close to your flower beds and other landscaping features. This offers a more convenient alternative to hacking at your lawn with a pair of clippers or string trimmer.

The trimmer attachment provides an 8″ shrubbing blade that lets you get up close and personal with your bushes and hedges. This allows you to manicure and shape your shrubbery without having to sweep around with a bigger, more cumbersome blade. Both attachments have a max cut capacity of 5/16 inches with a top speed of 2,100 SPM.

Switching between the two attachments is incredibly easy. The Skil GH1000B offers tool-free blade changes. Simply pinch the release buttons on either side of the attachment, line up the tab on the bottom attachment, and press firmly until it locks into place. The whole transition feels pretty fool-proof.

How to change attachments

The Skil 20V 2-in-1 trimmer maintains a compact and lightweight profile. Even with its bigger attachment, the tool only weighs 3.1 pounds with the battery attached. And, with the kitted 2.0Ah battery, this handheld trimmer is well-balanced and very easy to maneuver.
