Hints & Tips
With the sun baking down and scorching the lawns, this is a good time to turn out attention to our hedges.
The birds have flown their nests and the hedges and verges have grown particularly quickly this year.
And here are two professional grade hedgetrimmers from Japan to tackle even the thickest thorn.
Kawasaki make sturdy machines designed for professional gardeners and keen amateurs with long hedges to trim.
Their HTK-60X Petrol Hedgetrimmer is light and well balanced and has a 22.5cc engine with solid state ignition to make it quick and easy to fire up.
It has a 180 degree rear twist-grip handle to make it easier to cut hedge sides and has laser cut-blades to give a neat, clean cut. It also has a fast-acting blade brake as a useful safety measure.
It costs £359, £20 less than the recommended price and has a five year warranty, two years for commercial use.
We deliver it free the next working day.
The HTK-75X Petrol Hedgetrimmer has a 22.5cc engine and 69cm blades to make cutting wide, tall hedges faster and easier.
These superf sharp double sided blades make this hedge cutter one of the best for the professional gardener as well as the amateur with challenging hedges to trim.
Machines like this are the best ones for cutting thick, old thorn hedges which have not been touched for years and where the wood is tough and would probably defeat lesser machines.
This one also has a three position rear handle and a heavy duty blade guard.
This one also has advanced anti-vibration features to make it more comfortable to use for long periods. And it weighs only 5.9kg.
It costs £399, £30 off the recommended price and has a two year professional warranty, five years for domestic use. Delivery is the next working day and free.
