Why buy a factory-reconditioned hedge trimmer?
There are several reasons, but the best ones include the following: because you can save money, and because the manufacturer has made sure it is fully functional.
In general, a factory-reconditioned product is one that was given back to the manufacturer for reasons that include but not limited to the following: damaged packaging, defective parts, and cosmetic blemish. When the manufacturer receives the product, they make sure the issue is addressed before they repackaged it as “factory reconditioned as new.”
