Forget about wobbly ladders and costly cherry-picker hire and maintain your higher hedges the easy way with this impressively well-built and well-equipped long-reach hedgetrimmer from Mitox.
Powering it is a Kawasaki TJ27 engine; a 1.03hp (26.3cc) two-stroke air-cooled unit that employs a full crank for superior durability and torque-transfer; and which has been pro-tuned for fuel-efficiency and optimum combustion.
A generously-sized 0.5-litre fuel-tank works to minimise downtime by reducing the frequency of breaks for refuelling; while an electronic ignition-system ensures starting is consistently dependable.
The Mitox 28 LRK Kawasaki Long-Reach Hedgetrimmer is equipped with a set of high-grade blades (55cm) which are double-sided and dual-reciprocating for increased productivity and a fast, clean cut.
It has a 220˚ articulating cutter-head, so there’s an ideal working-angle for every eventuality; and it employs comprehensive vibration-damping that works with its optimised centre-of-gravity and low-weight design (7.4kg) to make it pleasingly comfortable and easy to control.

Very Happy with ProductReview by john c / (Posted on 15/11/2016)The Mitox 28 dose seem a little heavy but I can't fault its performance. The initial start did take a couple of attempts but once started very pleased, it made short work of the task it was given.

Good ToolReview by [email protected] / (Posted on 09/11/2016)This was an alternative as the one I wanted was not in stock. It's a powerful tool if a little heavy.
One bit of advice though, be careful as the exhaust cover gets extremely hot and burnt my work coat. This tool will save you a lot of ladder work!

Good Bit of Kit

Good Bit of KitReview by Jim Pedley / (Posted on 26/10/2016)Does exactly what I want. First time trying to start it was a bit hard to get going, but every time since it has started on the first pull, obviously I hadn't primed it enough to get fuel right through.
It has tackled all my hedges with relative ease, I have laurel, beach, privet and Leylandii hedges. It's nicely balanced for extended use, I didn't find it heavy to use,
My only hope would be they offered an extension shaft of 1 metre just to give that little bit extra reach. Maybe something for them to think about in future.

Good ChoiceReview by Dale Holt / (Posted on 18/08/2016)Pleased with this long reach hedge cutter, normally I'm a Stihl man but their equivalent units were just too expensive for me to justify. The Mitox is doing what I need and cuts my large yew hedges very well indeed, it is quite a heavy unit, so the operator needs to be fit and quite strong. It starts easily and runs very well and the noise level isn't too high.
Very happy with my purchase and recommend to others.

Trim and TidyReview by Dominic Burroughs / (Posted on 05/07/2016)Good power and blades. Easy to start and adjust. Made short work of large laurel hedge that was way overdue cutting.
