So as to ensure the crispest possible cut, the impressively lightweight Ryobi RHT-5555R features a double-reciprocating blade set; a feature not normally found on such attractively-priced hedgetrimmers.
The blades themselves are a substantial 55cm long, so a speedy work-rate is assured; and they have a 24mm tooth-pitch, suitable for medium- to large-diameter growth. A transparent blade guard prevents accidental injury, while providing an unhindered view of the work area.
The Ryobi RHT-5555R Electric Hedgetrimmer employs a high-powered 500w motor, which incorporates Ryobi’s safety-enhancing Livetool Indicator™ that glows blue when the machine is connected to the mains.
Utilising Ryobi’s ‘GripZone’ handle technology, which ensures a firm, positive grip no matter what the angle, this model is difficult to match when it comes to control and manoeuvrability. It weighs just 3.4kg.
