Hints & Tips
The hedges are growing apace at the moment and just as you thought you’d got the lawn more or less in control, the hedges are starting to look straggly.
The days of using hedge clippers and thankfully well behind it as you’d need the arms of a front row forward to trim a long run of hedges, so here are three top hedgetrimmers offering excellent value for money.
The first is the Mountfield MHJ2424 Double-Bladed Petrol Hedgetrimmer with a 61cm blade and currently on special offer.
This has double blades with a wide 28 mm tooth gap to take on thicker growth especially as it is powered by a 24.5 cc engine.
Balance is important with hedgetrimmers as this makes them easier and less tiring to handle and with its 61 cm blade this one will tackle longer, wider hedges with ease.
It has an adjustable handle with three positions so you can tackle hedge sides and awkward shapes. It weighs just 5.5 kg.
Currently you can save £40 on the manufacturer’s recommended price as it costs just £139.95. It has a one year warranty from Mountfield and we deliver it free the next working day.
The Tanaka THT-2000 Hedgecutter with Twist Grip Handle, currently on special offer comes from a firm with a reputation for making robust and really powerful machines.
This one has a 22 cc engine designed to be relatively quiet when running and weighs in a 4.2 kg with a shaped front handle and a rear handle which turns through 180 degrees to make dealing with sides and shapes easier.
It has 51 cm double-reciprocating blades to give a very clean cut even on thicker hedge twigs and has a very useful five year warranty.
It costs £219, £70 less than the maker’s recommended price and is delivered free the next working day.
And this next one from the same stable is a really powerful hedge trimmer increasingly the choice of professional gardeners.
The Tanaka THT-210S Hedge Cutter also now on special offer has a 22 cc engine which runs quietly and starts very easily with a light pull on the recoil cord.
It weighs 5.2 kg and has five settings for the rear handle. Plus the 65 cm bladfes mean you can cut large hedges in quick time.
It costs £299, £100 less than the maker’s recommended price, has a five year warranty and is delivered free the next working day.
