Hints & Tips
Japanese manufacturing company Tanaka manufacturers some of the best hedge trimmers on the market and they are becoming increasingly popular with professional gardeners as well as home owners.
Now there is a five year domestic warranty on these light and easy to use machines which are remarkably powerful with the top of the range ones able to tackle the thickest, overgrown hedges.
The first of their range is the Tanaka THT-2000 Hedgecutter with Twist Grip Handle, currently on special offer.
A 22 cc engine starts easily with a noise reduction system to make it more acceptable in built-up areas.
The cutter weighs just 4.2 kg and is well balanced so it is easy to use over longer periods.
With a rear handle which rotates through 180 degrees making it easier to cut sides and odd shaped-hedges this is an ideal machine for the home owners with substantial hedges to trim.
It costs £219, £70 less than the maker’s recommended retail price and is delivered free the next working day.
This next one, the Tanaka TCH22E-BP2 (62) Petrol Hedge Trimmer has a 21.1 cc advanced two-stroke engine delivering great cutting power and yet designed to keep fuel costs low and be easy to start.
This one has 62 cm dual-reciprocating blades and can tackle thicker growth with 35 mm tooth pitch and has a QuickTwist rear handle for easier use and makes it easier for left-handed people to use.
It also has an exhaust at the front making it more comfortable to use.
It costs £299, £50 less than the recommended retail price and is delivered free the next working day. And like the others it has a five year domestic warranty.
And one intended for professionals and amateurs with really long hedge runs is the Tanaka THT-2520S Hedge Cutter.
This has 76 cm double-reciprocating blades with a tooth pitch os 35 cm meaning it can tackle really thick hedging.
For such a powerful machine it is remarkably light in weight – 4.9 kg – with a 26 cc engine designed for a long and demanding life.
It has a two year commercial warranty, five years for domestic use.
It costs £399, £60 less than the maker’s recommended retail price and is delivered free the next working day.
