Customer reviewsError in the specs -- not 3 4 inch capable
Very reasonably priced and works well BUT the specs on the Amazon web page indicate it will trim branches up to 3 4 inches in diameter whereas in the manual the model 200 has under a big CAUTION label the comment Do not use BEHT200 trimmer for cutting stems greater than 5 8 in. Because I rarely, if ever, trim branches that thick and because of the hassle of returning the item I decided to keep it. If, however, you need the 3 4 inch capability get the 300, 350, 400 model -- or a different brand.
