Hints & Tips
Hedgetrimmers make an ideal gift at Christmas for any gardener and we have a huge selection on our site.
So here are three different machines selected for their efficiency and performance all from top manufacturers.
First is the Greenworks 24v Cordless Hedge Trimmer with Twist Handle (22137AT), the perfect gift for anyone finding petrol trimmers a bit heavy.
It relies on the latest lithium-Ion battery for power. These batteries charge faster, last longer and don’t lose their charge and are also remarkable light at 3.3 kg.
Fully charged it runs for 35 minutes and has two reciprocating blades to give a clean cut.
The cutter blade is 56 cm long and the handle rotates 180 degrees to make it easier to get round the sides and leave a precise finish.
The 24 V battery, which together with the charger is included in the price, will fit other machinery in the range including a strimmer, chainsaw pole pruner and leaf blower.
It costs £99.95 compared with Greenworks’ recommended retail price of £179.95. There is a two year warranty and we deliver it free the next working day.
Now one from a leading European manufacturer with bags of oomph.
The Mountfield MHJ2424 Double-Bladed Petrol Hedgetrimmer with a 61cm blade, currently on special offer, has 61 cm double reciprocating blades which have 28 mm tooth spacing.
This means that it can tackle thicker hedges especially as there is a 24.5 cc powerful engine.
It weighs 5.4 kg and has a three position twist-grip handle for the sides and difficult-to-reach bits.
It costs £129.95, and that’s £50 off the maker’s recommended retail price. It is delivered free the next working day and has a two year maker’s warranty.
And finally a machine with loads of power which can take on the hardest hedges and is often used by professional gardeners.
The Tanaka THT-2000 Hedgecutter with Twist Grip Handle, currently on special offer) has a 22 cc engine well designed to give a long life with a top carburettor and special electronic system to give easy starting.
It weighs 4.2 kg and has 51 dual reciprocating blades for a quick, clean cut. This one too has a rear handle which can be rotated through 180 degrees.
It costs £219, £70 off the recommended retail price and there is a five year warranty from Tanaka.
We deliver it free the next working day.
