This ultra-lightweight electric hedgetrimmer from Al-Ko is a genuinely viable alternative to a petrol-driven machine. Its high-performance 550w motor will give you none of the starting or maintenance problems so common with petrol engines; and of course, it’s emission-free.
The Al-Ko HT550 Safety-Cut Electric Hedgetrimmer is equipped with a set of 52cm diamond-ground blades, which stay sharp for longer and provide a really fast, clean cut, with no damage to the hedge (the blades operate at an impressive 3200rpm). A guard at the tip of blades prevents them coming into contact with hard surfaces.
Combining radical weight minimisation (it weighs 3.6kg), superior ergonomics and an optimised centre-of-gravity, the Al-Ko HT550 is a pleasure to use, whether trimming or shaping. User-safety is paramount when designing a hedgetrimmer, so Al-Ko have incorporated their patented, heavy-duty safety-cable.
