Hedge trimmer time delay to start (HT2400)

I used my hedge trimmer maybe 3 times last year and when I went to use it today I thought it was failed.

Pushed the safety then the trigger and nothing. Did this a few times without success. Noted the battery light was green. Tried once more and it worked!

Ended up I forgot this tool has a couple second delay before it starts. My make a label and stick it on this tool as a reminder.

Why is there such a long delay time on this tool?

(FYI - this hedge trimmer outperforms my old gas trimmer by a long shot.)

I believe the delay is just a safety feature.

It is a very good tool and I haven’t cut my extension cord once while using it. :)
