- Superb Machine
Superb Machine I have owned a number of long-reach hedge trimmers over the years as I have a very large garden surrounded by high hedges on all sides. The trimmers I found most suitable in terms of reliability, ease of use, good cutting performance, robustness all have Japanese motors. They are a little more expensive but are worth it simply on the basis of a no hassle start up and operation.
The Mitox 28 LRK is no exception and I am very pleased with its performance in all the categories stated above. My only tiny gripe would be that I wish Mitox would include a "D" style handle grip along the shaft for improved flexibility of use. This does not detract from its five star rating.
- Good Performer. On the Heavy Side.
Good Performer. On the Heavy Side. Very easy to assemble. No problems starting on first use and and subsequently. Smooth operation & easy cutting. Responsive engine. Perhaps on the heavy side for prolonged use. A bit of concern over the electrical wiring which seems a bit exposed and liable to snagging.
- Very Happy with Product
Very Happy with Product 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 Tool
Good Tool 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 Kit 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 Choice
Good Choice 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 Tidy
Trim and Tidy Good power and blades. Easy to start and adjust. Made short work of large laurel hedge that was way overdue cutting.
