Hedge Trimmer Buying Guide
When you choose a hedge trimmer, consider what sort of job you will use it for. Will you be trimming high, low or long hedges? Will you be shaping the hedge?
The double-sided hedge trimmer is designed for trimming hedges up to chest height. A double-sided trimmer could be equipped with an adjustable rear handle for increased flexibility and for better ergonomics when trimming the sides of hedges. For shaping hedges, the double-sided trimmer is the most suitable.
Single-sided trimmers are designed mainly for straight sections of hedge. With teeth on one side of the cutting bar, the blade can be longer without the machine becoming too heavy. A longer blade lets you clip larger areas in a single sweep.
Pole hedge trimmers are used for cutting high and low hedges, and ground cover too. With a pole hedge trimmer you can cut high hedges without a ladder. Because you can angle the cutting bar you can work more quickly and it’s easier to reach when cutting low or high hedges. The engine acts as a counterweight to the cutting bar, so the machine remains well balanced while you work.
Things to keep in mind when buying a hedge trimmer:
- The machine should have an efficient vibration-dampening system to minimize vibrations in those parts of the machine that the user comes in contact with.
- The engine should have some form of emission control, for the benefit of the user’s working environment as well as the environment as a whole.
- Choose a hedge trimmer with appropriate length of the cutter bar for the job you intend to do.
