Hints & Tips
Gardeners in need of a machine to trim back tall bushes around their estate should try the Mitox 266-LRH Long-Reach Petrol Hedgetrimmer.
Priced at £219 including VAT, the device is driven by a 25.4 full-crank engine – a powerful and ultra-reliable component which is only usually seen in the most expensive models on the market.
Users can take advantage of a set of 40cm double-sided blades which allow for cutting in both directions, thus speeding up the job in hand.
Furthermore, the blades are dual-reciprocating, which means that they will add extra efficiency to the cut.
The articulating cutting head means that gardeners can use the machine at the angle which is most suitable to them, while it weighs just 6.1kg, making it a lightweight and ergonomic device.
It is also available with a ten-inch Chain Pruner and loop handle Brushcutter Kit to let experts get even more out of the hedgetrimmer.
