Quick Overview

With its overall length of 246cm and 270° articulating cutter-head, the Mitox 28-LRH makes it possible to safely trim tall hedges without using a ladder. It’s powered by an ultra-reliable 25.4cc two-stroke engine with a full crank for superior longevity; and improved power-transfer; and it benefits from a highly-effective anti-vibration system that combines with its low-weight design (only 7.4kg) to ensure operator-fatigue won’t be a problem. This model features a pair of 55cm double-sided, double reciprocating blades that are made from high-quality hardened steel for a clean cut and a lengthy working-life.

Good Value. Review by Martin Bailey

Most of my machinery is Stihl but, like a previous reviewer, I am shocked at their prices now. For the price of one Stihl I can buy 3 of these machines! In the twilight years of my gardening, I no longer want to be climbing ladders, so this machine is just the job.

I ordered it on a Sunday and it arrived 8.30am Tuesday morning. Very easy to assemble and started first time. A little heavier than I thought it would be but nicely balanced so you don't notice the weight when in use.

It cuts nicely and the angle adjustment is good. I would recommend this machine to any one.

I bought this in August. Setting up was not particularly difficult and the machine started easily. It has been used intensively since then to cut an extensive laurel hedge - around 200yds long, and high and wide in places. This was a major task.

As other reviewers have noted, it is a bit heavy and can get quite hot and the strap is, I find, not much use. Never mind. In past years I hired a 'branded', (e.g. Stihl) long reach hedge cutter at £50 or so for a weekend. The Mitox has performed just as well.

Only concern, thinking ahead, is that the lock for the cutting head will, when it is a little more worn, foul the support bar and won't be usable. For this reason, I am giving only four stars for build quality, even though the problem is unlikely to arise for a while.

Why didn't I buy one earlier Review by A Brown

Looked at a number of similar items from big superstores but there were many supply problems. Really pleased I bought this trimmer from Mowdirect. It arrived promptly and was easy to put together. It started on the 5th pull and has fired up since then on first pull from cold and hot. Its early days yet but it looks promising. Item comes with a useful harness. It has saved me hours of climbing steps and balancing near the blades on a normal trimmer. It is good to not be near the blades, apart from the safety issues you avoid the dust and insects flying out of the hedge. The blades are easily adjusted for a range of heights and angles but the handle does NOT reduce in length.
One word of warning (probably my fault!) do not hold the machine out in front of you with the rear of the engine pointing at your waist. The exhaust exits here and is very hot. I managed to melt my trousers without realising!! Overall I am very happy with the purchase. The job of hedge trimming is so much easier now and not the dangerous chore it was.

Excellent service from MowDirect - good communication with updates of dispatch. The trimmer arrived in good condition and we tried it out immediately. The 'long reach' is not quite as long as we had expected.
It appears to be well built and worked at first try. Can not comment on long term performance and durability as only time will tell. We were encouraged to see that individual parts are available so that it can be mended if necessary rather than throw away and replace. The picture does not show that it comes with a harness.
