Hedge trimmers are fantastic pieces of kit that help take the strain out of cutting your hedge when compared to typical manual hedge shears. Not only can you save time, but you can also save on any unnecessary arm ache and get a much neater finish across your hedges. Choosing the right hedge trimmer will largely depend on their size, as well as how long it will take you to cut them. If your hedges are easy to reach and can be cut within 70 minutes, then you may want to consider a cordless hedge trimmer. With an average charge time of 90 minutes, they should offer all you need to tackle smaller hedges around your garden. If you’re dealing with a larger range of hedges, that may take you over 70 minutes to cut, then you’ll want to consider a petrol-powered hedge trimmer.
