If you’re looking for a safer way to trim the very tallest hedges, no cherry picker or ladder required, then this commercial-grade long-reach hedgetrimmer from Husqvarna will prove an indispensible purchase. It has an overall length of 2.34-metres and it’s equipped with an adjustable cutter-bar, which can be set to any position between -45° and +85° to suit the task in hand. The incorporation of a remote control means you don’t have to put the machine down to make adjustments.
The Husqvarna 327HE-4X Long-Reach Hedgetrimmer is driven by reliable and high-powered 24.5cc E-Tech engine, which features a catalytic convertor which ensures the emission of harmful exhaust particulates is minimised without skimping on power. Husqvarna’s Smart Start recoil starter mechanism reduces the pulling-force needed to get the engine going by around 40-percent.
Some pole-type hedgetrimmers can be heavy and unwieldy – not so this model. It weighs a mere 5.8kg and the engine acts as a counter-balance to the cutter-bar, so it couldn’t be easier to handle. The 55cm blades on the Husqvarna 327HE-4X are double-sided and double reciprocating for increased productivity and a rapid work-rate.
