Hints & Tips
While the lawns may have lost their colour recently the hedges are still growing vigorously and need regular trimming to keep the garden looking their best.
So here are two best-selling machines from leading manufacturers which will do the trick and both are on sale at excellent prices.
First is the German-engineered Einhell BG-PH 2250 Petrol Hedgecutter with strong steel blades which give a fast clean cut and is suitable for longer runs of hedging where electrically-powered cutters can’t work.
A 22 cc engine gives plenty of power to the 50 cm blades which have a 28 mm tooth gap which can tackle thicker growth without jamming.
The engine has an on-off switch as a useful safety device and is made to start quickly from cold.
The maker’s recommended price is £199.95 but we have for sale for just £99.95. It is delivered free the next working day and has a two year warranty from Einhell.
Another machine on special offer is the Mountfield MHJ2424 Double-Bladed Petrol Hedgetrimmer with a 61cm blade.
This one has 28 mm tooth spacing so you can tackle thicker, tougher cuttings and the engine is Mountfield’s own 24.5 cc model.
The whole machine is well balanced to make working over long periods more comfortable and weighs only 5.4kg.
It also has a three-position twist grip rear handle to make it easier to use4 on the side and more difficult sections of hedges.
This machine costs £129.95 and that’s £50 off the maker’s recommended price. It has a two year manufacturer’s warranty and is delivered free the next working day.
