Things to consider when buying a hedge trimmer
Cutting Width/Blade Gap and Blade Length: An important aspect to consider when buying a hedge trimmer is the blade length. The length of your trimmers blade, will determine how fast the hedge is cut. An average size hedge would suit a blade length of a size between 45-60c, however, anything much larger or denser would be suited to a product with a blade length of more than 60cm.
The larger the gap between the teeth of the blade the more foliage you can cut in one go. A large blade gap is perfect for thicker, denser hedges. These general guidelines should help:
Size of hedge- Length of blade:
Small- 46cm or below
Large- 56cm +
Added Safety Features
Hedge trimmers can become dangerous pieces of equipment to use, therefore safety features are often a key selling point. You could look out for the following.
- Automatic Brake: This ensures that once the trigger is released, the blades should stop instantly, eg, if something gets jammed in the teeth of the machine.
- Hand Guard:This will protect your hands from any falling debris.
How big is your property?
Less than 100 yards to the nearest power source? An electric trimmer is fine for you. Anything larger, or if the space involves some obstacles a petrol powered trimmer is probably best for your needs.
How often do you plan on using your new hedge trimmer?
If you only need a trimmer for occasional use, a cheap model makes sense. For frequent use, you should invest in something more professional, as they can save you time and money in the long run.
